iPhone 4S Gets iOS 6.1.1 Update From Apple
Apple has updated the iPhone 4S software to iOS 6.1.1 version, according to the report from the company itself.
The iOS 6.1.1 software update for iPhone 4S may have triggered Apple to release the update after reports from mobile phone companies in Europe advising their iPhone 4S users to avoid updating to iOS 6.1 because of some 3G problems for the device.
According to a released statement from Vodafone UK as reported by GigaOm, "We're aware of an issue caused by Apple iPhone 4S handsets that have been upgraded to iOS 6.1 which impacts performance on 3G. Some customers may occasionally experience difficulty in connecting to the network to make or receive calls or texts to connect to the internet."
Vodafone UK went on further to say that "Apple is working on a solution to their software issue. These connection problems are intermittent. While Apple's investigations continue, we would recommend that anyone who has not yet installed iOS 6.1 on their iPhone 4S should delay doing so until Apple has confirmed that the problem has been fixed."
Meanwhile, Apple made a statement on its site regarding the iPhone 4S iOS 6.1.1 software update that reads: "This update fixes an issue that could impact cellular performance and reliability for iPhone 4S."
