Apple yesterday along with the release of the ‘new iPad‘ (aka iPad 3) and ‘new iTV’, also pushed forward iOS 5.1 to its iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch users. The latest update offers some minor new features and a few bug fixes. iOS 5.1 has without any doubt made the jailbreak community busy again as they would have to strive hard once again to find an exploit inside iOS 5.1 and deliver a new jailbreak tool for the masses.
According to official iOS 5.1 changelog:
- Japanese language support for Siri (availability may be limited during initial rollout)
- Photos can now be deleted from Photo Stream
- Camera shortcut now always visible on Lock Screen for iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch (4th generation)
- Camera face detection now highlights all detected faces
- Redesigned Camera app for iPad
- Genius Mixes and Genius playlists for iTunes Match subscribers
- Audio for TV programs and films on iPad optimized to sound louder and clearer
- Podcast controls for playback speed and a 30-second rewind for iPad
- Addresses bugs affecting battery life
- Fixes an issue that occasionally caused audio to drop for outgoing calls
Remember, you can get this update Over The Air (OTA) also by going to Settings > General > Software Update.
