iOS 5.1.1 Available

In case you haven't noticed by now, there's a new iOS update waiting for you. The iOS 5.1.1 addresses several well know (and annoying) bugs - and that reminds me: Apple should really begin to show a little more appreciation, and respect, for its users. If you visit Apple's official support foruns you'll find endless desperate accounts of users facing such bugs, without receiving a single word from Apple to whether they're looking into it or when we'll be able to expect a fix...

This new iOS 5.1.1 is mostly a bug fix realease, including:
  • Improved reliability using HDR for photos taken using the Lock Screen shortcut
  • Bugs that prevented switching between 2G and 3G networks on the iPad
  • AirPlay video playback bugs
  • Improved reliability syncing Safari bookmarks and Reading list
and... last but not least

  • Fixes an issue where "Unable to purchase" was shown after a successful purchase.
A fix that - I hope - also addresses the annoying "waiting apps" bug.

I'm the first to recognize that no platform is without its quirks and bugs, and that each update must be carefully tried and tested (or it can itself turn out to be the cause for bigger problems). But considering we now have the delta updates system - that makes it possible to push updates weighing just a few MBs, wouldn't it be better if Apple addressed its users complaints in a faster way, pushing bug fix updates it a more timely manner?

If you haven't updated your iPad, iPhone, or iPad yet, you can do it either via iTunes, or by visiting: Settings > General > Software Update
