Apple Unleashes iOS 5.1
[WARNING: Jailbreaksers should NOT upgrade to iOS 5.1. until a corresponding jailbreak is released)
In what amounted to the first formal announcement at Apple's media event today, Tim Cook revealed that iOS 5.1 (for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch) is now available for OTA download.
In addition to addressing bugs affecting battery life, the 189 MB update delivers a number of significant tweaks and improvements. Most notably, there's voice dictation support for the iPad, an updated Camera app, and the ability to delete photos from Photo Stream.
All told, here's what iOS 5.1 delivers
- 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 and issue that occasionally caused audio to drop for outgoing calls

Is the battery life really solved? (anyone using 5.1?)
03-07-2012, 02:54 PM #5
My battery life is fine. No major improvements. I'll wait patiently for the jailbreak but wont be losing any sleep.

Another warning: iWork and iLife for iOS requires 5.1. So if you have them installed, they'll stay in you AppStore update bin until you install 5.1. Yay! Another mouse trap.

I'll wait for a jailbreak from the Dev Team.

Crap, I need do an SHSH Blob backup tonight after work. How long till after the 5.1 server update do they continue to sign the previous version?

Can anyone confirm the battery life fix? Like coming from people who've had the battery drain issue for 5.0 - 5.0.1 and then magically disappeared after this update.

i'm leaving the country soon, so having a jailbroken iPhone 4s is important to me for a carrier unlock.
HOWEVER, i really want to have iPhoto for my trip...

Very glad to see Photo Stream adding a Delete function. But not worth the upgrade yet

Fish are friends, not food!
Neither is Slow Internet.

I must be the only person with a 4s that doesn't have battery issues
