An hour ago I got a prompt on my iPhone for a new iPhone over-the-air software update, iOS 6.1.2. Two days ago, on February 19th, I got a prompt for an iOS 6.1.1 update. Two updates within 2 days. What is up, Apple?


Looking at the image above, it says the iOS 6.1.1 update will “fix an issue that could impact cellular performance and reliability for iPhone 4S”. No further information was provided to explain the aforementioned “issue” but I reckon it has something to do with the 3G connection problem with the iPhone 4S units.

I have not even noticed any 3G-related problem at all. Maybe it’s just something that I don’t really pay attention to as battery drain is not something new with the iPhones. My first iPhone was a 3GS model and it got so battered by numerous jailbreak (my fault as my tinkering curiosity killed my that I had to recharge my phone three to four times a day. When I got the 4S I swore I would never do any jailbreak to it to optimize its battery life.


The iOS 6.1.2 over-the-air update which I got today supposedly “fixes an Exchange calendar bug that could result in increased network activity and reduced battery life”. This directly addresses the bugs the iOS 6 has on Microsoft Exchange meeting invitations. As I have no experience with Exchange calendar, I cannot comment further.
