Yes, iOS 6.1.1 was just introduced about two weeks ago, but it’s time to update your iPhone again. The most current iOS available for your iPhone is version 6.1.2, and is available for downloading.
If you get an update message on your phone, or if you look at the settings icon on your iPhone desktop, and you see a number in a red circle, it means that you probably have to update your phone to 6.1.1 and/or 6.1.2.
According to one of Apple’s representatives, updating your iPhone to iOS 6.1.2 will fix a bug related to “Exchange Calendar,” which causes an increase in network activity, and a reduction in your phone’s battery life.
Managing your updates is easier, now, than when the iPhone was first introduced. Tap “Settings” on your iPhone desktop. Tap “General” on the next screen. Tap “Software Update,” and then “Install Now.” Follow the prompts to complete the update. (You will need a WiFi connection to complete this update.)
To check which iOS you are currently running on your iPhone, tap “Settings;” then tap “General” and “About” on the next two screens. Your current iOS will be shown in “Version.”
Some users might decide to bypass this notification, and choose to update at a later time. This is fine, as long as you eventually update to the current iOS. Choosing not to update at all can cause a host of issues later on.
Keeping your iPhone updated with the most recent operating software can help prevent glitches in apps you are running, and also help prevent your iPhone from crashing.
Friends of mine never update any of their devices or software, and as a result, their devices/software eventually malfunction. This can mean hours of downloading and updating missing/needed software to get their iPhones, applications, etc. working properly again.
