Hi everyone  today Apple released iOS 15.1.1 to the public this is something we’ve been waiting for quite some time and in a bit of a surprise it’s available to only specific devices so for the first time in quite some time this is available only to iPhone  12 and 13 series devices, so it’s available to the public at the same time everywhere around the world, but you have to have a 12,12 mini 12 pro or 12 pro max or iPhone  13 mini 13 13 pro or 13 pro max it’s not available to any other iPhone s that support iOS 15 or any other iPads it’s only available to these specific iPhone s we haven’t seen apple do this for quite some time now this update is a fairly small update it came in at 362.3 megabytes that’s on my iPhone 12 Pro Max but if you’re on an older version maybe you haven’t even updated to iOS 15.1,

yet it’s going to be a littleger and so if you’re looking for the update the easy way to do that is going on your phone go to settings go to general then software update, and it should show up just like it did here, so you’ll see it was 1.44 gigabytes on my iPhone 13 pro max this particular iPhone  is on an older version of ios 15.0.1, so you’ll want to make sure that it’s on the latest version to have the least amount of size for updating but either way it could be a smaller large update for you now as far as what’s new well before we talk about that the first thing is if you’re on a beta maybe you’re on ios 15.2 betas you will not see this update because you’re on a newer version you won’t see it even if you’re on the supported devices that are getting this update so just keep that in mind now let’s take a look at the build number and talk about what’s new,

so we’ll go to settings then we’ll go to general than about you can see the build number is 19b 81 and like I said this is a bit odd because it’s only for these specific devices we haven’t seen that in quite some time if ever with a major public release however this particular update fixes a specific problem for the iPhone  12 and 13 and that has to do with call quality or call drop performance specifically as you can see here says it improves call drop performance on iPhone  12 and iPhone  13 models and the thing that’s very specific about the 12 and 13 series phones is they have Qualcomm modems in them instead of intel modems so with all those issues with maybe switching between 4g 5g UC maybe millimeter wave and back to Wi-Fi and those things hopefully those are resolved, and maybe it resolved more than just the call drop issue however because it’s so specific it makes sense that they didn’t push it out to other devices if they’re just fixing that one issue so as far as what’s in this particular update that is the only thing they’ve mentioned and when they push out one of these updates they always update their security web page so if we go to safari you can see this is the Apple security updates page and if we scroll down you’ll see that they have ios 15.1.1 listed there,

And it says available for iPhone  12 and later and this update has no published CVE entries now that does not mean they haven’t fixed something specific to this with security, but they haven’t published it if they have, so there’s nothing mentioned here as far as what could be in it specifically, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t pushed some sort of security update altogether as far as bug fixes well again I would expect it to fix things such as cellular connectivity I don’t know that for sure as it takes a little time to use it but cellular connectivity I wouldn’t expect any battery changes of course it’ll take a little while to use this and then see what it’s like, but I wouldn’t expect any battery updates anything else because it’s fixing a very specific problem now if it was causing battery drain specific to maybe the cellular antenna then maybe we could see an improvement, but again it will take a few days to know that for sure and of course this phone hasn’t been my main phone I’ve been using the betas so this particular one battery life for some on 15.1 has been pretty terrible this phone has a 100 battery capacity and again like I said it hasn’t been my main phone, so it’s not going to show the true battery life of earlier builds but quite a few people were having poor experiences on 15.1, so hopefully this is part of the problem, and they resolved it with it now as far as performance again I wouldn’t expect anything different scrolling and everything else seems to be the same, but I did run a benchmark on this just to see if it was any different on the 12 pro max since I have some benchmarks from earlier versions so if we go into geek bench in geek bench you’ll see it scored 1596 for single core 4163 for multicore if we go to the history and take a look at the previous time when I ran it on October 1st here that was with an earlier version 15.0.1 we’re actually a bit above that as far as the overall scores.

So that’s a good sign even right after updating this phone checking the geek bench scores they’re a little higher so that typically makes me think it’s going to have a little better performance as those numbers typically improve over the next few days so that’s it in this particular update there’s not a lot more to talk about now I did talk the other day about some updates to AirPods the other day apple also released updates for AirPods 3 and AirPods Pro I made a separate video about that I made live earlier today and of course that’ll be linked in the description but if you want to know how to update your air pods or what’s new in this or what’s new in the AirPods update of course that’s linked in the description, and you can check that out on my channel now other than that I wouldn’t expect ios 15.1.1 to release to the public on any other devices now it’s possible they do that, but I think with ios 15.2 coming up is being in the betas there was a beta yesterday I think we’ll have a couple more betas and then an early December release with 15.2 that will be available to everyone instead of just 12 and 13 series phones hopefully apple doesn’t do that again because a lot of people get quite frustrated when they just push it out to some people and that sort of fragments the versions that are available to people so now on the 12 and 13 the latest version is ios 15.1.1 on all other phones

It’s 15.1 so I’m not really happy to see them do that hopefully they change that in the future as far as if you should install this update well if you’re on an iPhone  12 or 13 I definitely would install it to fix those problems with phone calls, and hopefully it resolves your issues now if you found anything else in this update I’d love to hear from you in the comments below
