With complaints from lots of users regarding the bugs in Apple's updated for iOS 6.1 regarding the battery drain, overheating and 3G issues, Apple today released a patch update for addressing the same.  It is not yet clear whether the update fixes the battery drain issue or 3G bug in 4S, but the later seems more possible.

The Company has not released any presser for the complaints but informed that,  "This update fixes an issue that could impact mobile performance and reliability for iPhone 4S."

The iOS 6.1.1 update was in testing for members of Apple's developer program since 6 February but given the complaints from users, it seems Apple had to move rather abruptly with this release.

However, all said and done,  you can download the update at this link.  

The updated is 23 MB in size and can be downloadedOTA.  Please post your comments/complaints on the update.

PS The Apple today accepted the problem with its Exchange service.  Here is what it says on its support page:  

iOS 6.1: Excess Exchange activity after accepting an exception to recurring calendar event
Products Affected
iPad, iPhone

When you respond to an exception to a recurring calendar event with a Microsoft Exchange account on a device running iOS 6.1, the device may begin to generate excessive communication with Microsoft Exchange Server. You may notice increased network activity or reduced battery life on the iOS device. This extra network activity will be shown in the logs on Exchange Server and it may lead to the server blocking the iOS device. This can occur with iOS 6.1 and Microsoft Exchange 2010 SP1 or later, or Microsoft Exchange Online (Office365).

* An exception is a change to a single instance of a repeating calendar event.

Apple has identified a fix and will make it available in an upcoming software update. In the meantime, you can avoid this bug by not responding to an exception to a recurring event on your iOS device. If you do experience the symptoms described above, disable then reenable the Exchange calendar on your iOS device using the steps below.

Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars
Select the Exchange account from your Accounts list.
Turn the switch for Calendars to OFF.
Wait ten seconds.
Turn the switch for Calendars back to ON.

This document will be updated as more information becomes available.
