    ever since I installed 10.1.1 (14B100) on my 6s, my battery life has been horrendous. I hope this will fix that.

    The original OTA 10.1.1 destroyed my 6S battery life (like 45 mins from 100% to 0%) so I had to downgrade. This was even with low power mode enabled.

    Still not seeing the update for my 6s. Is it just for the 7? Anyone update on an older phone?

    Uhh because you are not required to update to it. It probably fixes a hiccup in the installation process like 9.2.1 did when they re-released it. If you are on 10.1.1 and everything is working fine, you literally have nothing to worry about and can ignore this.

    Its not OTA, its iTunes only and its only meant for those still on 10.1. Don't worry about it.

    Did you already have 10.1.1 (or even 10.1) installed?

    Interesting. I figured it just included all the 10.1 information in it in case it would apply to those who haven't updated from something before 10.1, but I guess it just has that by default.

    I believe that is the number of times that the software was built, not the number of code commits to it. There could be one commit, but if a nightly build is done, it might automatically increment the build number each time.

    Guys, I´m getting incredibly slow download speeds from Apple servers.... 3hs wait on a 2GB file, and my internet connection is pretty solid (50Mbs Optic fibre).

    I guess that I´m not the only one, right?

    Recovery mode would be sufficient, DFU does about the same thing. For those saying this is a non-issue caused by inattentive users, this is not the case. The unknown passcode requirement has been happening for a while, but I think Apple most likely had a tough time pinning down the cause as it's kinda hard to gather diagnostics on why it happens.
    Stole my post! Well, not really, your joke is better than anything I thought up. :D

    Just thought of something. How do we know that Apple's update servers haven't been compromised and that this "release" doesn't contain malware? I've already got 10.1.1 installed and iTunes is telling me that 10.1.1 is available for download.

    I'm pretty peeved with Apple over this. No release notes to differentiate this from the 10.1.1 that they pushed on Oct 31? Even if this is legit, this is an unprofessional practice.

    A lot of people stopped using Dropbox because the developers stopped putting out a changelog for new releases. Their updates said something like "We update our software periodically". Those of us who care about what is being updated or changed decided we didn't trust the company anymore and have removed the software from our systems.

    I use Transmission as my BitTorrent client and it went through something very similar a few months ago. Their update server was compromised and the criminals pushed out a malware-infested version of Transmission.

    As most of the thread discusses, that doesn't show what's new in this new iOS 10.1.1 build.

    The security page has been updated with November 1 and 2 entries. The initial 10.1.1 was released on October 31. I believe these are new patches:

    Since 10.1.1 contains Security fixes of 10.1, it was updated with November entries after the initial 10.1.1 release.

    Available for: iPhone 5 and later, iPad 4th generation and later, iPod touch 6th generation and later

    Impact: A local user may be able to cause an unexpected system termination or arbitrary code execution in the kernel

    I believe those apply to the Oct 31 release of 10.1.1. If there are really new security fixes in this release, there's virtually no way Apple wouldn't increment the release number and provide us a changelog specific to 10.1.2.

    It's likely that it was simply the time when the information was added to the page, rather than what is part of iOS 10.1.1 original or not. I would say that if there were truly security fixes or something beyond some sort of an installation type of fix then the iOS version number should/would have been increased so that the update would be made available to everyone over OTA as well.
