Will IOS 5.1 ease any woes ?

The latest release of IOS popped up yesterday and I decided to do an Iphone 4 first. The across the wire upgrade worked fine – taking a few minutes to complete. So whats in the new update ?

According to Apple

This update contains improvements and bug fixes, including:

  • Japanese language support for Siri (availability may be limited during initial rollout)
  • 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

Lets hope the call quality and drop out issues that several users have reported to me are addressed.
