Apple has hurried out a release of iOS 6.1.1 after several iPhone 4S users started experiencing connection issues in iOS 6.1. Customers of Vodafone in the UK and 3 in Austria started experiencing connection issues with both 3G and normal networks after the release of iOS 6.1 last week, and Vodafone even texted its customers telling them not to upgrade until Apple released a fix.
The bug only affects the iPhone 4S, so owners of other iOS devices don’t need to worry about checking for the update. It’s expected that the latest developer builds of iOS 6.1.1, which developers have been working with over the last couple of weeks, will now become iOS 6.1.2 – it’s thought that this minor update is only designed to fix connection issues and nothing more. 4S owners can grab the fix now via an OTA update, and those that have recently used the Evasi0n jailbreak will be pleased to hear that the software update doesn’t change anything – it’s still compatible with the jailbreak.
