The launch of Apple’s iOS 5 was one of the most remarkable and important improvements in the world of mobile operating systems. And Apple always made it a point to keep this new OS at its best. They have been updating their OS as and when required in order to make iOS 5 as stable and efficient as possible. And in order to continue doing that, Apple has released yet another update, the iOS 5.1.1 which takes care of the bugs and issues of the previous version and also takes care of most of the problems people were complaining about on the New iPad. This update is available via both, ‘iTunes’ and ‘Over the Air’.
iOS 5.1.1 Update Released
According to Apple, this new 5.1.1 update takes care of the following points:
- Improves reliability of using HDR option for photos captured 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 under 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
So it is quite clear that this new update is going to solve a lot of problems and at the same time will give you a better experience on your iDevice. But do not forget that if you are already using a jailbroken device, then it is better NOT TO update to iOS 5.1.1 right away.
