When you woke up this morning, did you reach for you iPhone or iPad and happily notice the latest iOS 5.1.1 Upgrade? The only downside is not being able to use your device while Apple updates the software via firmware over the air (FOTA). Remember when you needed a USB connection to synchronize data? Now it only takes a couple moments! The latest update focused on bug fixes, security updates and other improvements for the latest versions of the iPod Touch, iPad and iPhone.
Here are 6 things you need to know about Apple’s iOS 5.1.1 Update
1.) Upgrades the reliability when you use the HDR option for taking photos using the Lock Screen shortcut.
2.) Alleviates the pesky problem that caused the new iPad from switching between the 2G and 3G networks.
3.) Airplay video playback playback issues have been rectified.
4.) Improved dependability when you sync your Safari bookmarks and reading list.
5.) You won’t have to worry about getting the ‘Unable to purchase’ alert when you’ve purchased something successful on your device. iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch users rejoice!
6.) Fixes up some serious security issues including patches in the WebKit rendering engine, as well as a security issue in Safari, which also used WebKit.
Updating your Apple device is very simple. Our D.i.D. Doctor of iDevices were kind enough to give some simple instructions. First, launch settings if you are running iOS 5 or later. Next you tap General, and then tap Software Update. Updating to iOS 5.1.1 shouldn’t take too long as this qualifies as a delta update and takes up about 50 MB worth of space. You can also download the update via Apple’s website or iTunes if you wish.
The Internet is flying with rumors that a major iOS overhaul will be released in June, 2012 during the Worldwide Developers Conference event in San Francisco. The last major upgrade was hugely popular with over 25 million installs! [Related: 25 Million Install iOS 5!]
