Apple launches iOS 6.1.1 to fix Apple iPhone 4S problems

Apple launches iOS 6.1.1 to fix Apple iPhone 4S problems
You might recall that on Friday we told you that U.K. carrier Vodafone had warned its customers sporting the Apple iPhone 4S not to download iOS 6.1. as those who had installed the software were finding it impossible to connect to the internet, make or take calls, or send and receive text messages. Now, Apple has released iOS 6.1.1 which corrects the problem. The update is available only for those using the Apple iPhone 4S and can be found by clicking on the sourcelink.

Apple iPhone 4S users are getting a bug fix

Apple iPhone 4S users are getting a bug fix

Apple released a note with the update that simply says, "This update fixes an issue that could impact cellular performance and reliability for iPhone 4S." The iOS 6.1.1 update is a hefty 968MB. Meanwhile, some Apple iPhone 5 users have complained about what they perceive to be excessive battery drain on iOS 6 and some models of the phone are still having problems connecting to Microsoft Exchange servers since the launch of iOS 6. Apple has not said when it would release a fix for that problem. Until the problem is resolved, some corporate users will continue to block functrions related to corporate invitations.

Flawless is not a word that can be used to describe iOS.

Typo in the last sentence of the article Alan. functrions ----> functions Glad to see Apple pushed this update rather quickly. I can now tell my friend to update without worries. Good job on Apple's part.

No sir. I had an S2 and that thing was bad depending on what apps were installed. I had to keep force closing apps even after getting the task manager app.

why you use a task manager? Its a horrible idea and only causes issues, not even other built in one is needed unless something needs to be closed... Otherwise letting android manager your tasks is the way to go

some Apple iPhone 5 users have complained about what they perceive to be excessive battery drain LTE = excessive battery drain They all wanted LTE - but you think Apple could have put a large battery in the Iphone5?

Battery life isn't great, but it sure isn't bad with LTE on. However, unlike every Android I have owned, Apple kindly placed an LTE slider in the Setting menu of the iPhone 5.

Why don't we put all the iphones over here, burn them and then give their owners actual smartphones - Android phones - over there?
