Apple claims that with the new version update many users will be able to make use of the LTE technologies and Fandango ticket buying through Siri as well as better music controls. The update will also fix some of the earlier bugs that were left out in the phone.
Many consumers using iPhone 4S said that they started experiencing major problems with making calls and sending text messages and also accessing the internet with the previous iOS 6.1 update.
The software update purportedly resolves the many bugs afflicting iPhone 4S owners who upgraded to iOS 6.1.
iOS 6.1.1 is optimized for iPhone 4S models only as it chiefly "fixes an issue that could impact cellular performance and reliability for iPhone 4S." It is available now either for direct download or as an over-the-air download.
