Question: iPhone 4S update to iOS 8.1.3


I have a question to ask. I'm using iPhone 4S running iOS 7.1.2. When I connect my phone to iTunes, there is an option to update to iOS 8.1.3 (see the image below). Is it still possible to update to iOS 8.1.3? I thought it's only possible to update to the latest iOS version.

If I choose to update, 'em I forced to update to iOS 9.3.2? Or can I really update to iOS 8.1.3?

That is a very unusual image there. The only iOS that you can update to is the most current one that the device can run, which for the iPhone 4s at this time is iOS 9.3.2. I'm quite surprised to see that image appear.
