Apple pushes out iOS 6.1.1 to iPhone 4S to fix battery and 3G problems
Apple has rolled out an update to iPhone 4S users to fix problems which have been affecting cellular data performance and battery life
The Web was awash with complaints from disappointed iOS users last week, after it emerged that the recent update to iOS 6.1 was causing some serious problems with both the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5, such as overheating, non-functioning hardware keys, depleted battery performance and cellular data issues.
Never fear though, as we predicted, Apple has been quick off the mark to patch the cellular performance problem with an iOS 6.1.1 update, which began rolling out to iPhone 4S users last night. But the company stopped short of acknowledging any of the other issues which have been widely reported.
The update, which was pushed out yesterday, arrives with a ‘to the point’ Changelog which simply reads "This update fixes an issue that could impact cellular performance and reliability for iPhone 4S.".
So if you’re an iPhone 4S user and you’ve been languishing without your data connection, the good news is all you have to do is go into ‘Settings’, hit ‘General’ and tap on ‘Software Update’ to get back on the data-train again.
If you’re one of the loyal users that forked out a truckload of cash for the iPhone 5, then you’re going to have to put on a pot of coffee, because there doesn’t appear to be any light at the end of your tunnel quite yet.
