iOS 5.1 Leak Shows Small Change to Lock Screen Camera Icon and Japanese Siri Support
Brazillian iPhone website blogdoiPhone is claiming to have a “pre-GM” version of iOS 5.1.
As proof, the Brazilian blog shows pictures of an iOS 5.1 lock screen complete with a permanent camera icon and Japanese Siri support in the menu system. The GM version of iOS is the final candidate used in a software release.
The current beta release of iOS 5.1 features the ability for users to add the camera icon to the lock screen by double tapping the home button. According to blogdoiPhone the permanent camera icon acts as a slider revealing the camera app when users pull the icon up the screen.
The blog also provided screens of Japanese support in the iOS menu system. If real, this confirms Siri’s own leaking of the digital assistants soon to be support for Japanese users. Apple has promised to add Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Italian, and Spanish language support to Siri.
Apple will likely announce the iOS 5.1 update alongside the announcement/release of the iPad 3.
