It's safe it's just that it might be slower due to outdated hardware of the older iPhone model.

I probably wouldn't do it on a iPhone 4S, although it is compatible as people have said.

thanks Robert i will check it out. Im not sure i will update it though as i hear alot of horror stories on how it freezes it up and really sucks back the battery. My battery i find already after a year of having phone is slowly getting worse . i find i am charging it more often as when i first got it.

The 4S is as much as 4 years old if bought when newly released. Batteries do lose their ability to hold a charge over time. Possibly it is time to replace either the phone or the battery.
