Apple has just released a new update for iOS devices, and that includes the iPad, iPhone and the iPod touch. The update is barely incremental from iOS 5.1 to 5.1.1 but you might want to get it sooner than later since it comes with a number of fixes.
The update brings among other things:
- Better reliability of using HDR option for photos taken using the Lock Screen shortcut.
- Addresses bugs that could prevent the new iPad from switching between 2G and 3G networks.
- Fixes bugs that affected AirPlay video playback in some circumstances.
- Improved reliability for syncing Safari bookmarks and Reading List.
- Fixes an issue where ‘Unable to purchase’ alert could be displayed after successful purchase.
You can get the update over-the-air as long as you are connected to a Wi-Fi network and your device is either sucking power from an outlet or battery is over 50%. Simply go to “Settings” > “General” and hit “Software Update”. Otherwise, you can always stay faithful to the old-school trick and attach your device to a computer and launch iTunes.
