iOS 5.1 Software Update


Apple has released a new iOS 5.1 Software Update. The highlights are below but by far the best new feature for most users will be the ability to use the iphone camera directly from the Lock Screen. So no more missing shots while you fumble around trying to find apps. Nice one Apple!

The update also contains the following:

  • 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 shows and movies on iPad optimized to sound louder and clearer

  • Podcast controls for playback speed and a 30 second rewind for iPad

  • Updated AT&T network indicator

  • Addresses bugs affecting battery life

  • Fixes an issue that occasionally caused audio to drop for outgoing calls
