Its not very long that Apple released their new operating system for mobile devices, iOS 6.1. 1. There were still some bugs in the latest update so another one has recently been rolled out which is available or download. After Untethered Jailbreak of any iOS version is launched, it is noticed that Apple issues updates at much higher frequency in the name of security or bug fix.
However, this update is not related to security. There were some serious issues with the last update such as lock screen exploit, Issues related with network connectivity and the most serious issue was connectivity problems affecting Microsoft Exchange users. Some critical issues were addressed upto some extent in the previous update of iOS 6.1.1 but still some work was left to be done. In this update you are not going to face any existing issues as per Apple.
Some major improvements which were added in iOS 6.1 version to improve user experience were slightly updated Music app with some new features, controls were more improved, LTE “4G” support in more European, African, Asian and American countries, battery drain problems some improvements were made to Siri while some of the changes were even made to the initial setup wizard.
This altogether new release was followed by iOS 6.1.1 for iPhone 4S, which addressed a critical flaw in network connectivity. The more recent issue, which also has to do with Exchange meeting management, causes a continuous loop between iOS 6.1 devices and Exchange servers when trying to synchronize recurring calendar meeting invitations, leading to significant drops in device performance. The latest release of iOS 6.1.2 is launched with a less gap after the recent update.
If you are one of those who have not yet Jailbroken the device so far, and also the one who is affected by Exchange problems, you can update. Otherwise, if you are Jailbreak freak and still want to upgrade then follow this tutorial.
