Apple Releases Updated Version of iOS 10.1.1

Apple today seeded a minor version change to iOS 10.1.1, the current version of the iOS 10 operating system. The update is minor enough that it did not warrant a full 10.x.x number change, but it does include an updated build number.

iOS 10.1.1 being released today has a build number of 14B150, while the initial iOS 10.1.1 release, which came on October 31, had a build number of 14B100.

The new build of iOS 10.1.1 is only available as a download from Apple's servers and cannot be obtained over-the-air at this time for those who have already installed the first version of iOS 10.1.1. The new version of iOS 10.1.1 will likely be provided to those who have yet to install iOS 10.1.1, as it otherwise requires an iTunes connection to obtain.

There is no new information in the changelog for the updated build, so it is unclear what minor bug fixes or changes it brings.

The first version of iOS 10.1.1 fixed a bug that caused Health data to be unavailable for some users. A minor update, iOS 10.1.1 was released shortly after iOS 10.1, a more significant update that brought a new "Portrait" mode and dozens of bug fixes and feature improvements.

This most likely fixes the problem for users that do not have a screen lock passcode after updating to 10.1.1 being presented a requirement to enter their 4-digit screen lock passcode when they didn't have one set. This has hit two elderly people I know (one with iPhone 5 and one with 5c). It pretty much requires a DFU and a restore from iCloud/iTunes backup to get back running.

I'm gonna bet that they're just old and weren't reading the prompts.

If it's different enough to give it a new build number, it's different enough to give it a new minor version number.

At least some information from Apple about it would be nice. No version bump yet the build number is higher by 50.

2gb for a minor update? :eek:

iTunes always downloads the entire package, no deltas...

Eh what? So another week and another iOS update with the same version number as last weeks but you can't get it over the air... what??.?.

Well done Apple, usual iOS quality release there.


Uhh because you are not required to update to it. It probably fixes a hiccup in the installation process like 9.2.1 did when they re-released it. If you are on 10.1.1 and everything is working fine, you literally have nothing to worry about and can ignore this.

Still not seeing the update for my 6s. Is it just for the 7? Anyone update on an older phone?


Its not OTA, its iTunes only and its only meant for those still on 10.1. Don't worry about it.

WoW! 2,45GB thru iTunes. iPhone 7 Plus.
Would be interesting to see what's new.


Thats the full installer. I highly doubt you will see a single change.

My guess is that it fixes a problem that only occurs when updating through iTunes. That is why it is not offered over OTA.

If that is the case then there is no difference to the actual OS (and so no updated version number required), only to the installation code.

The build number says Apple fixed/changed 50 things but still keep the version number.

I don't think that's how build numbers work, but Icould be wrong.

It says it fixes the bug with prevent some people from viewing their health data.

Along with some other bugs I am sure but it didn't give details of those.


That's what the original 10.1.1 was for.
