Well, what do you know? Google isn’t the only one pushing a minor software update today. In fact, Apple has made iOS 6.1.1 available. And as you probably guessed by now, this is a more minor (if that’s a thing) affair than even the already minor iOS 6.1 released not long ago. The new release has one purpose, and one purpose only: to fix the cellular connectivity issues for the iPhone 4S. We told you about those yesterday, after Vodafone UK decided to tell its customers not to upgrade to iOS 6.1 if they have an iPhone 4S. That’s how bad things were.
Not anymore, though. iOS 6.1.1 should be safe for the iPhone 4S, so if you’re still on pre-6.1 versions, go and update. Likewise if you are on 6.1 – to fix the issues, upgrade as soon as possible.
Apparently if you don’t have the iPhone 4S, you won’t even get this software version. That would be a first for Apple.
If you’re the jailbreaking type, you needn’t worry. Evasi0n has been updated to support iOS 6.1.1. So make sure you have version 1.3 of that tool and you’re good. Though if you’ve jailbroken and are on 6.1 and want to update, you should first restore your device in iTunes.
