You won’t find a ton of new features waiting for you, but iOS devices have a new software update waiting for them on this sleepy mid-Monday that brings the version number up to 5.1.1 and squashes a few minor bugs.
Apple has released iOS 5.1.1, a modest update to iOS 5.1, which was released back in March just ahead of the new iPad. The update mostly offers some bug fixes and reliability improvements, but the changes sound promising enough to install -- assuming you haven’t jailbroken your device, that is.
iOS 5.1.1 includes the following changes:
• Improves 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
Users can install iOS 5.1.1 using the over-the-air Software Update from your device Settings, or by plugging into iTunes and downloading it from there. As always, recommends devices are plugged into a power source while installing.
