Geekbench 3.1.1

Geekbench 3.1.1 is now available for download.

Geekbench 3.1.1 works around the crash that happened at launch on iOS 6. We talked to Apple about this crash and it turns out the crash is the result of a bug in Apple's FairPlay DRM on iOS 6. FairPlay on iOS 6 cannot handle universal applications that contain a 64-bit architecture. Unfortunately we weren't able to catch this bug during development as it only affects universal applications downloaded directly from the iTunes App Store.

We have decided to work around this crash by temporarily removing 64-bit benchmarks. Fortunately iOS 7 does not have this bug, so we are planning on reintroducing 64-bit benchmarks in time for the iOS 7 release on Wednesday.
