Apple has this morning pushed an update to iOS for iPhone 4S. In this somewhat uncommon move, this update is for iPhone 4S only at this time. Apparently the update was rushed out to to fix 3G connectivity problems, enterprise issues, overheating oddities and probably a few other things.
The update is only 23 MB, and comes with build number 10B145. Those of you worried about losing your device unlock can rest assured that the baseband has remind the same at version 3.4.01.
This news comes just a few days after reports started coming in that Vodafone and other european carriers were advising their iPhone 4S users against updating to iOS 6.1 “while Apple fixes 3G performance issues.” Well, today is apparently that day and those of you with an iPhone 4S can update to iOS 6.1.1 without worry (as long as you’re not worried about jailbreaking).
iOS 6.1.1 has been in testing via Apple’s developer program for about a week. For those with an iPhone 4S on iOS 6.1 wondering about the firmware’s compatibility with evasi0n, I would hold off until we have official word from the evad3rs. Stay tuned and we’ll let you know.
Update: As pointed out by member MatrixGray, Planetbeing has confirmed that evasi0n will be updated to work with iOS 6.1.1 soon.
Apple released 6.1.1 for the 4S only today. The JB still works fine. We will release an updated evasi0n that recognizes it as supported.
