In September, Apple rolled out its long awaited iPhone 5s iOS 10 update bringing new features and enhancements to the 4-inch device.

The iOS 10 update delivered some positive changes to the company’s mobile operating system but it also brought problems to the iPhone 5s and other iOS 9-powered devices.

Apple’s addressed some of these problems with iOS updates and its latest release, iOS 10.1.1, tackles a data issue plaguing the iPhone.

The iPhone 5s iOS 10.1.1 update is a tiny release if you’re coming to it directly from iOS 10.1. If you’re coming to it from something older like iOS 10.0.2, iOS 9 or iOS 8, your iPhone 5s iOS 10.1.1 update will be much larger thanks to the features and fixes from the previous of versions of iOS 10.

Today we’re taking a close look at the iPhone 5s iOS 10.1.1 update. This roundup offers our iPhone 5s iOS 10.1.1 impressions, information about iPhone 5s iOS 10.1.1 problems, some details about the iOS 10 jailbreak and more.

If you're coming from iOS 10.1, the iPhone 5s 10.1.1 update should take you about two minutes or so to download over a speedy Wi-Fi connection. The installation process will take you about five more. If you're coming from something older, allot more time to get the download/installation done. 

We've been taking a look at the iPhone 5s iOS 10.1.1 update's performance in the weeks since its release. Here's what we've found.

Battery life is holding up well at the month milestone. We haven't run into any major problems and its holding its normal charge.

If you download iOS 10.1.1 and you do run into battery issues, give it a couple of days to even out. If after two days you're still seeing problems, you'll want to take action

We've tested the iPhone 5s iOS 10.1.1 update with several ISPs, routers, and Bluetooth devices. So far so good. We haven't run into any major issues with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or LTE/4G.

The iPhone 5s' UI is still pretty fast with iOS 10.1.1 on board. UI lag was a bit of a problem on iOS 9 but we haven't encountered as much on iOS 10.

We've noticed a little bit of choppiness when bringing up Control Center but the lag is irregular. It happens once or twice a day on our device. It's similar to our experience on the iPhone 5.

iOS 10.1.1 currently feels pretty stable on our version of the iPhone 5s. It's worth a look if you're coming from iOS 10.1 or another version of iOS 10.

If you're coming from something older like iOS 9, make sure you grab a second or third opinion before making the jump.
