We have already outlined quite a few issues with iOS 6.1 such as decreased battery life and Microsoft Exchange issues. According to 9To5Mac Apple is rushing to release iOS 6.1.1, which was originally believed to only fix Japanese Map bugs, to solve some of the troubles being reported with iOS 6.1.1.
iOS 6.1 has forced European carriers to issue warnings not to upgrade as it affects 3G performance. The issue was not just with 3G through carriers such as Vodafone and three in Austria, many users in Apple’s own forums complained of similar problems, degraded battery life, and more. As we mentioned previously users have also had problems with Exchange support, causing AOL corporate to temporarily disable the ability to manage mobile meetings from iOS devices running iOS 6.1.
The actual report comes from a german blog by the name of iFun that has stated carriers have already finished testing iOS 6.1.1 and the 23MB update carrying a build number of 10B145 should be available over-the-air soon.
With Apple rushing to release iOS 6.1.1 maybe they will release the update without patching Evasi0n’s exploit. Last time we heard, Evasi0n was still compatible with iOS 6.1.1 beta 1 and could actually be easily modified to work.
Unfortunately no solid release date was given for iOS 6.1.1, but we believe it will be release sometime this week.
