This page alone weighs in at over 100kb. Some of that is with cached images, so I suppose technically it would be higher.

Can you build an OS in 640k or less?

6.1.1 isn't available yet on my 4S, it says the software (6.1) is up to date.

No 3G issues on my phone's end, Sprint's end is a completely different story though.

As a 4S user directly affected by this, I can't wait to DL the latest update when I get home from work later today. I was wondering what the hell has been wrong with my phone for the last month or so.

Geez guys, really? The fix was for some problem with the Qualcomm baseband. Do you think that effects Safari?

Are you new here?

I have not had any 3G problems on my AT&T 4S so I am not upgrading my phone. It's jailbroken. Why update when I have no problems.

No battery or heat issues here and I use a MS Exchange account on my iPhone. Matter of fact my battery life has gotten better! I get about 10% more battery life at the end of the day -- even while Jailbroken, running Winterboard!

It's on wifi. Apple really is going downhill.

My buddy has Sprint, he doesn't get LTE anywhere in Miami, until he came down further south in the boon docks to my house, he was pissed.

Are you speaking of 6.1 or the new 6.1.1 that was released today?

Didn't OS/2 fit on a couple of 140k floppies? Isn't this just a 3G driver update?

I have a Sprint Apple IPhone 5 and I get 4G LTE just fine at Zip Code 60102 (Algonquin, IL, U.S.A., which is where I currently live),which is somewhat of a Rural Area at least 50 Miles NW of Chicago, IL, however whenever I visit my Hometown Area of Schamburg, IL, U.S.A. (Zip Code 60193) I only get 3G both there and in Roselle, IL (Zip Code 60172) which is where my Social Worker's Office is at!

You only get LTE if you have an Apple IPhone 5, 4S Users are Limited to HSPA+/UMTS, you should know that by now that the IPhone 5 is a much Different IPhone from the 4S!

I agree that IPhone's are nowhere even close to being fragmented as much as Android Phones are, all I have to do is look at the Sunday Sales Fliers to see RadioShack and other Electronics Stores selling Motorola Droid Family Cell Phones with Android 2.3 OS on them, Samsung is practically the only Android OEM that is forcing Carriers to Upgrade their Phone's Software to Jelly Bean, everyone else has to usually Root their phones to get Jelly Bean!

This update is BS! Apple has really stopped innovating in its updates as Android has gotten a clear lead. I mean, all this did was change the 3G. Who cares? We don't want this! iOS is antiquated and doomed.

A computer scientist from the early 90s would vomit at Windows 8 for the Surface. It's tablet software that takes up 30GB. How the heck did they manage to do that?????????

iTunes downloads the entire OS and then updates. OTA is a delta update, so it only downloads the changes. That is why the file was so big.

It's a X.X.1 update. Of course it's small. That's like saying Google (or Microsoft, Blackberry/RIM, etc.) should create a totally new OS version every month. It takes time to update an OS, it doesn't happen instantaneously. Bug fixes are needed as much as major OS features are.

I don't blame you for not noticing it, but I was not being serious. The reason it was so hard to detect was because I was trying to make it a semi-realistic comment you'd see from the pessimists around here.

Yeah I missed the sarcasm on that one. It's just all the ignorant people that have been saying that on here have been getting under my skin.
