Apple releases its latest iOS 5.1.1 software update for iPad, iPod and iPhone


iOS 5.1.1 has just been released by Apple for its iPad (1st, 2nd and 3rd generation), iPhone (3GS, 4 and 4S) and iPod touch (3rd generation and later). It can be downloaded from iTunes by connecting your preferred Apple device to your computer as well as from the “Software Update” feature on your device. (The software update feature may not be available for some older Apple devices).

The update takes about 3 – 5 minutes to download (and another 5 minutes to update) over a normal home Wi-Fi connection (time could vary depending upon the speed of your internet connection). It is best to connect your device to a power source while updating and it will Restart after verifying the update. This update mainly contains some improvements and some important bug fixes, some of them being:

1. Many of you might have received an alert ‘Unable to Purchase’ even after a successful purchase. This update attends to this issue.

2. Fixes the bug that could affect Airplay video playback (not always)

3. Fixes bugs that in certain cases prevented the iPad or iPhone from switching between 3G and 2G networks

4. Improves the HDR option for taking photos.

5. Improves the reliability for syncing Safari bookmarks and Reading Lists

This update is available over-the-air for devices running on iOS 5 and above. It is a 54MB download for iPhone, and 42.5MB of iPad and 42.8MB of iPod touch.

Apple had originally introduced iOS 5 in October last year with iPhone 4S, while iOS 5.1 was released in March 2012.

Right from childhood have been a technology buff. As a child used to take a screw driver and open all of my toys just to see what ticks inside them. My parents once got me a wooden rocking horse with just four wheels and nothing else to open, thinking that they would finally get some rest. Next day the wheels were being removed to check the shaft principle used in the making. This craziness just stuck with me as I grew up and got interested in all the latest technological marvels that just keep springing up everyday. Used to blow all of pocket money just to keep myself updated with the latest walkman, which was one of the most interesting inventions paving the way for modern mp3 players and other portable music devices which are much more than just music devices now. This site is just a step to ease that geek in me. To share and let you share the latest gadgets, news and anything related to technology. Lets enjoy this feeling together.
