iOS update 6.1.2

New update just hit but with all the attack hacks is it even safe to worry about (using touch 4)

Was there ever a 6.1.1? Or did I miss it?

So how is 6.1.2, worth upgrading for? I almost like 6.0.1 better than 6.1, so maybe I will pass unless there is a need...

I upgraded, I think it's only something like 10mb so there's not really any reason not to.

didn't really know there was a 6.1.1 .

anyway, any update that may enhance battery life is good enough to upgrade to.

I believe 6.1.1 was only for the iPhone 5.

Thanks and rumours of extended battery life seem good. Will upgrade later.

I seem to be getting shorter battery life under 6.1.2 than under 6.1 on both my iPad 2 and iPhone 3GS.

Unfortunately, 6.1 appeared to cause my 3GS to heat up so that the back gets quite hot...

not sure if this is related to this thread but you made me think of something
my ipad4 and iphone4 both have had a drastic reduction in battery life the last week or 2
the iphone 4 is the worst. usually a full charge would last me all day easily, wouldnt even get past 50%
now by mid morning its down around 70% and i rarely use it
( i do make sure all apps are closed too)
was this a common theme with ios update or totally unrelated

sorry for hijacking a thread

It isn't directly related to the updates, but with my iPhone turning on 3G results in a massively, hugely reduced battery life, similar to what you've described. Could that be it for you?
