Right, most of us iPhone users are probably mocking Apple for trying to trick us into updating our iPhones with the new v1.1.4 firmware. But, if you’ve been experiencing some Bluetooth connection problems, or noticed some SMS text message ordering issues, you might want to seriously consider the bump up to v1.1.4. Turns out, the iPhone v1.1.4 firmware actually does stuff.
We’re hearing that the new firmware fixes the Bluetooth bug, where some Bluetooth devices simply failed to connect properly with the iPhone after updating to the v1.1.3 firmware. The SMS text message bug has also been squashed with the new update. No longer will you be answering your friends’ text messages before they even ask a question.
Furthermore, signal reception seems to have gotten a boost in reliability with the new firmware. Some iPhone users reported that they noticed weaker signal strength upon updating to the v1.1.3 firmware, but the new iPhone v1.1.4 firmware should bring back your cell signal to normal levels.
And, since the iPhone v1.1.4 firmware is almost jailbreakable, troubled iPhone users might want to consider the update. ZiPhone is almost iPhone v1.1.4 jailbreak compatible. Sit tight.
