Apple Releases iOS 6.1.1 for iPhone 4S Devices, Fixes 3G Issues




Apple has released iOS 6.1.1 for iPhone 4S devices, presumably fixing the 3G issues that carriers warned their customers about with the iOS 6.1 update. The update, which is specific to the iPhone 4S, comes with a build number of 10B145. It weighs in at a relatively paltry 23MB.

A beta of iOS 6.1.1 was released in the middle of last week carrying a build number of 10B311 -- it's likely the upgrade released today was an urgent bug fix and the prior iOS 6.1.1 beta sent to developers will become iOS 6.1.2.

I guess I'll be the first to ask, I wonder if the 6.x exploits are still vulnerable in this release.

I'm hoping that the holes have been closed and the iOS 6 jailbreak is now disabled.

Why would you hope for that? Do you not believe in choice? You believe if you buy a T-Shirt the shop should have the right to say 'You may only wear this on Thursdays'?

Jailbreaks are exploiting security flaws in the device to do what they do. Closing these holes improves the security of the platform.

Choice is also doing just fine, based on the healthy competition I see going on in the smartphone market today. If iOS feels too restrictive in some way, why support the platform by giving money to Apple and then jailbreaking, vs finding an alternative platform that is more open to these types of activities?

You need to do more research.

It is impossible to use the iOS 6 jailbreak to hurt anyone else. The only person who can jailbreak their device running iOS 6 is the owner, using a USB cable connected to a computer. Hell it won't even work if there is a passcode set on the phone.

Don't worry about the jailbreak exploit. Unless you actually want to jailbreak, it does not affect you in any way.

It did work on mine
I knew i had to disable passcode but i just forgot. When i was jalbreaking and it was doing it's own thing, it asked me to enter the passcode at some point and that's when i remembered. I thought that was going to screw the process of jailbreaking but it didn't. It all went so smooth.

Sweet! Christmas came early. Downloading now. I'm pretty sure this update makes all screens 5" and full of retinas.

According to Engadget, this appears to be only for iPhone 4S users. Anyone with a 4, 3GS or 5 able to confirm seeing the update?
