Just a few weeks after releasing iOS 6.1 to the public, Apple is apparently rushing a build of iOS 6.1.1 that fixes some widespread issues with battery life, 3G performance, and syncing. The news was reported by German blog iFun.
The blog said the 23MB update will be available in the near future.
After the release of iOS 6.1.1 in late January, numerous users have flooded Apple’s forums to report a wide range of issues that are found in different iPhone models.
Vodafone users of the iPhone 4S were hit particularly hard with 3G issues. The carrier even advised users, via the pictured text message, to hold off on upgrading to iOS 6.1 if they hadn’t already.
And AOL reportedly even disabled corporate meeting management from iOS 6.1 devices due to a bug with Exchange support that caused a continuous loop when trying to sync a recurring meeting invitation.
The first beta of iOS 6.1.1 was only released on Wednesday, but Apple apparently wants to fix the issues as quickly as possible.
Jailbreakers can breathe easy as well. The first beta of the update didn’t patch the exploit used by the enormously popular Evasi0n jailbreak. After being installed by almost 7 million users in four days, Evasi0n is the fastest-adopted jailbreaking method ever.
