    Hi there. Just as I thought. But better check.

    A stupid question is better than a disastrous result. ;-)

    There's a possibility that apps won't work if there's functionality incompatibility with iOS 6.1.1 that the developer hasn't addressed. That's why Apple does releases to developers before releasing to regular users, so developers have time to update their apps if needed.

    If you find an app doesn't work after upgrading, you should contact the developer.

    Hi Guys.

    Info appreciated. The upgrade worked nicely on both my iPhone and iPad. Nothing untoward noticed so far. :)

    Regards
