Released iOS 6.1.1 update for the iPhone 4S

Not too long ago, Apple released iOS 6.1 to the public, yet this one was plagued with issues ranging from a lock screen exploit to numerous connectivity problems affecting Microsoft Exchange users. While the recently released iOS 6.1.1 update for the iPhone 4S, which Apple rushed quickly, addressed the critical connectivity issue which stopped many business users from upgrading, this new 6.1.2 release fixes many other small problems that were still left.

iOS 6.1 included quite a few additions and small changes when compared to the original release of iOS 6 in order to address customer feedback and make slight improvements to the overall user experience. Among these changes, a slightly updated Music app was introduced featuring new, more polished controls, LTE “4G” support in more European, African, Asian and American countries, improvements to Siri and small changes to the initial setup wizard. This release was followed weeks later by iOS 6.1.1 for iPhone 4S, which addressed a critical flaw in network connectivity.

However, a critical exploit was quickly found which allowed unintended users to get past the passcode protected lock screen of any iPhone by spending a few seconds meddling with the Emergency Call feature. While this is not easy to perform by accident, this vulnerability could place an unsuspected user’s contacts at the hands of an unintended user. This bug has been reportedly addressed with iOS 6.1.2, hopefully before major pranks were played all across the world involving unsuspecting contacts stored on a victim’s phone.

Other than that, the Exchange bug has also been addressed with the release of iOS 6.1.2. Here’s what the official change log says:

Fixes an Exchange calendar bug that could result in increased network activity and reduced battery life.

Given all of the issues affecting iOS 6.1 and 6.1.1, you are encouraged to update your device as soon as possible, either over the air (OTA) straight from your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, or through iTunes. Keep in mind that if you’re jailbroken, stay away from this update until further notice, as it is not confirmed whether Apple has patched the Evasi0n jailbreak in this release.

Voice Answer Is a Siri-Like App For All iOS Devices, Answers All Your Day-To-Day Questions Using Voice And Text

As has been pointed out on a number of occasions, Siri, Apple’s system-wide voice recognition software introduced with the iPhone 4S was, by no means, the first delve into such technology. Nevertheless, although there will always be skeptics, it cannot be denied that Apple has certainly brought the technology to the center of public interest, and predictably, there are a bunch of third-party apps purporting to offer similar services.

While voice answer isn’t another Siri copycat, it is strikingly similar, and unlike Apple’s offering, it isn’t just reserved for those owning the Cupertino company’s latest and greatest smartphone. Indeed, while Siri does have its imperfections, implementation across the board of iOS 5 devices would have gone down a lot better with the growing legion of iOS-wielding consumers, but I digress.

Voice Answer will try its best to answer all of your burning, strange, ridiculous questions, and if you’re not feeling too chatty, you can also type them out – which is extremely useful. Siri doesn’t allow text to be written down, and often, by the third attempt of Siri mishearing what you’ve said slowly and coherently in an almost patronizing manner, it would probably have been quicker to use the on-screen keyboard.

Voice Answer’s recognition of speech is a little rough around the edges, although if you’ve had any firsthand experience with Siri or a similar app, you’ll know that the technology has yet to be refined. Voice Answer boasts integration with Wolfram Alpha, and in some instances, additional information such as images will supplement your answer.

Voice Answer will set you back a cent shy of four bucks over at the App Store, which is quite high – especially considering many feel underhanded by the lack of Siri by default. Nevertheless, the Wolfram Alpha feature – along with the ability to type questions in manually – renders Voice Answer a worthwhile purchase as a Siri-like alternative.
