  • Apple Expected to Release iOS 4.3.2 Within Two Weeks


    It's been about two weeks since Apple updated the iOS to version 4.3.1, and now it appears that another update is due to arrive within the next two weeks. According to Boy Genius Report, Apple is currently working on iOS 4.3.2. It appears that this will only be an incremental update, so it's very unlikely that there will be any surprises contained within this release.

    What you can expect with this iOS update are the usual enhancements that address security issues and bug fixes. iOS 4.3.2 is expected to be compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad when it’s released. Unfortunately, specific details were not given about what bugs would be fixed or what the enhancements might include.

    Apple's World Wide Developers Conference is set to start on June 6, and they are widely expected to preview the next version of iOS at the event, as they have in previous years. Unfortunately, the iPhone 5 is not expected to be released or even previewed at this year’s event. Recently there's been some speculation that the iPhone 5 may not even be released until next year. If this is true then it would break with Apple's usual yearly iPhone refresh cycle. Although it does seem likely that the iPhone 5 will be pushed back beyond Apple’s WWDC, it's doubtful that it will be pushed back until next year.

    Apple's invitation to this year's WWDC 2011 invites attendees to "Join us for a preview of the future of iOS and Mac OS X." Although Apple is surely hard at work creating the latest and greatest version of iOS 5, it's good to see that they are still continuing to improve and maintain the current version iOS. Hopefully, the next update won't give Jailbreakers too many headaches when it is released later this month.

      I always try to focus on the positive. Did you read the article about jailbreaking creating jobs? While frustrating at times, I am sure that overall Jay is glad jailbreaking was necessary.

      Apple can take there pointless, time consuming, updates and shove it up u know where. I'm Sticking with 4.3.1 till iPhone 5 comes out. It takes me at least 40 min to do updates on my phone!

      They always try to do updates to get people to have the latest firmwares so they won't be able to jailbreak. I'm on 4.2.1 and I want to update to 4.3 but I'm not stupid though. They always say security fixes and bug fixes. That may be so but it's not like your gonna see the details : "Security fix trying to patch the jailbreak devs"

      Oh that's right. It's NOT for the security fixes. It's for the jailbreakers. Sooner or later some of you need to realize that.

      Keep it up Apple. As long as you keep making iDevices....we'll keep finding ways to jailbreak them. Meanwhile you can keep pulling out whatever little hair you have left trying to stop us. Most of us have already caught on to your little game and aren't updating anymore so keep wasting your time and money with these juvenile update releases.

      Ummm.... Jailbreaking IS a security issue to Apple.

      Probably battery life issue will be solved...

      ^^doubt they would solve battery issue, great way to get people upgrade to iPhone5.
      They are doing this to get rid of jailbreak, thing is with so many useless updates I basically stopped since 4.1. I would not even bother downloading apps that require higher iOS version unless I absolutely must have it.

      Apple is really loving there updates, but all they want to do is kill your jailbreak. Shame on you Apple, go take a nap or something lol.

      You do realize 4.3.1 is jailbroken and untethered right? The new features from 4.2.1 to 4.3.1 more than justify the time spent upgrading IMO. 4.3 has been jailbroken, albeit tethered at the time, ever since it dropped. With the latest release of redsn0w and the inclusion on i0n1c's untether it's pretty damn seamless to upgrade and jailbreak, especially if you use pkgbackup. That way restoring you previous tweak, apps and settings is as easy as hitting restore! Unless your relying on a ultrasn0w unlock there is no real reason to not update unless you just don't care about the new features, bug fixes, etc.

      You don't have to update but updates are useless. And they are killing things like lunching useless upates every two weeks to patch one small bug that is not even a big deal. And am not the only one that agrees on small useless updates. Instead of quoting me making useless statements direct your attention to the news rather than what I say.

      Thanks for the laugh. Your second post made even less sense than your first.

      As always I will just hang out on the most current untethered jailbreak firmware till the next one is jailbroken.

      Have not need to upgrade most the time but just do it to bump up to more current because on rare instances apps want a newer firmware.

      Why? If it poses such a huge risk to consumer security or Apple security....then why did the courts deem it to be legal?

      Seems to me like the only real significant security risk is Apple's sense of self-security in being able to maintain complete control over a device that WE paid for.

      I still wonder why they fight against jailbreaking?
      I know Steve blow Jobs is retarded, just look at how locked up and lame the iphone is compared to any other phone similar to it.
      Think about it, if the iphone was unlocked like any android phone how many more iphones will sell because it doesn't need to be jailbroken everytime?

      I'm speaking of no need to jailbreak, not carrier locked.

      1, IOS will be a lot smoother and stable coz it wont need a jailbreak which can sometimes corrupt it and make it unstable.
      2, apple will look better in the eyes of the consumer as they will look like they actually listen to what the people want instead of the tiny mind of Mr Steve blow Jobs.
      3, the iphone is declining in sales coz the competitor's phones are more appealing and already unlocked so there is no need to jailbreak and they usually do a lot more too.
      4, jailbreaking is legal so they cant stop it.

      4 good reasons why crApple should stop fighting against jailbreaking and let 3rd party apps be installed in IOS. All they would have to do is let Cydia in the app store and thats it. No need for jailbreaking. crApple would win the fight against jailbreaking in one go but do you think they are that smart? I doubt it.

      Jailbreaking iPhones is legal but that doesn't mean Apple has to facilitate it . They are still completely within their rights to prevent jailbreaking with iOS updates.

      Anywho, I have no interest in iOS updates lately. A feature that would make me interested is the ability to have Apps Auto-Update. Same goes for iTunes

      A jailbroken device is a lot more susceptible for malicious software to run.
      Jailbreaking enables app piracy.
      I bet there are plenty jailbroken iPhones out there that have SSH installed and running 24/7 with the default password.

      Security has nothing to do with the legality ruling.

      I just hope they fix the personal hotspot(wifi)issue I have... I've restored twice in the hopes that it may fix the problems with maintaining a connection at an acceptable speed. Personally the only reason I jailbreak is for some additional functionality, i.e. MyWi, FolderEnhancer, Tlert... Skinning and modding has lost its appeal to me, as it usually bogs things down and makes them choppy. I like a smooth operating os. If the personal hotspot function is improved, I may not even jb anymore, and I've been doing so since the days of ManzanaUI, on the original iPhone
