About two weeks ago, Apple released a minor firmware update to their latest mobile operating system the iOS 6.1. What ensued, of course, is the release of the most anticipated jailbreak in history. However, it seems there are numerous issues present with iOS 6.1 and Apple has been compelled to release another update as soon as possible. They just pushed out iOS 6.1.1 for iPhone 4S users.
In a rather surprising move, the Cupertino company released iOS 6.1.1 off the heels of a developer's beta last week. There were various connectivity issues present in iOS 6.1, which affected those using Microsoft Exchange. Most users who have been severely affected are involved in the business sector, so Apple has seen fit to act fast to address the problem. The changelog for iOS 6.1.1 (10B145) is quite brief, which you can check out below:
This fixes an issue that could impact cellular performance and reliability for iPhone 4S.
Those who have jailbroken their iPhone 4S on iOS 6.1 might want to pass on this update. It is not yet sure whether it has patched the Evasi0n untethered exploit. Hold off on that upgrade or you mightl lose your jailbreak before you can begin to savor it. The best course of action is to wait for an announcement from the Evad3rs team whether it's safe to update to iOS 6.1.1 or not.
As you can see, this is a very minor update and only for iPhone 4S users. If you are not jailbroken (and has no plans to do so) and have been experiencing connectivity issues with your iPhone 4S, then we urge you to download this update right away. You can use your device's OTA update or you can download the IPSW from the link below:
