Apple iOS 6.1.1 released for iPhone 4S, fixes battery issues
Apple iOS 6.1.1 update has been released for iPhone 4S users. According to Pocket Lint, the update is 23MB and can be downloaded over-the-air by iPhone 4S users. It is primarily meant to address the bugs that people have been facing because of the iOS 6.1 update.
Apple said, “This update fixes an issue that could impact mobile performance and reliability for iPhone 4S.” The update is said to have been in testing for members of Apple’s developer program since February 6. This points to the fact that Apple worked to get this update out quickly to address many of the complaints it was facing.
Many of the complaints came to light just yesterday with users facing issues with 3G connectivity, battery life, and over heating. An earlier report states that complaints regarding iOS 6.1 started trickling in all the way back from January 28, when Apple officially released version 6.1 for users to download. The issue seems to be plaguing only users who have upgraded their devices recently.
The earliest report from January 28 came from a user who incidentally reported an improved battery life, with comments talking about how users were saying the ‘exact opposite’ instead. Complaints about depleting battery life was the most common complaint with one user complaining about the battery life of his device having fallen to 23 percent after about an hour and a half of standby.
The problem has escalated so much in the last few days that Vodafone sent out a mass text to users advising users to not upgrade their phones to iOS 6.1 as far as possible, not at least till Apple releases a fix. Vodafone said that upgrading to iOS 6.1 is bringing about issues with 3G.
