• Apple Unleashes iOS 5.1

    [WARNING: Jailbreakers should NOT upgrade to iOS 5.1 until a corresponding jailbreak is released)

    In what amounted to the first formal announcement at Apple's media event today, Tim Cook revealed that iOS 5.1 (for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch) is now available for OTA download.

    In addition to addressing bugs affecting battery life, the 189MB update delivers a number of significant tweaks and improvements. Most notably, there's voice dictation support for the iPad, an updated Camera app, and the ability to delete photos from Photo Stream.

    All told, here's what iOS 5.1 delivers:

    - 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 programs and films on iPad optimized to sound louder and clearer
    - Podcast controls for playback speed and a 30-second rewind for iPad
    - Addresses bugs affecting battery life
    - Fixes and issue that occasionally caused audio to drop for outgoing calls

      I won't update to 5.1 even if this jailbreak is untethered. There's nothing good for iPod users in this update so it'll be a waste of time IMO

      Apple revealed the newest iPhone model, the 4S on Oct. 4, 2011. Thanks to the A5 dual-core 1GHz processor along with a dual-core GPU, iPhone 4S will be faster and more powerful than previous models when you use iPhone 4s to watch movies or TV-shows, play games, browse the webpages and run apps. If you are a movie lover, instead of gaining movies or TV-shows through iTunes, you can copy movie DVDs to iPhone 4s. This will save unnecessary expenses. If you don't kown how to this, here is a walkthrough of ripping and converting DVD for iPhone 4s.

      I have an iPhone 4 that lost all sound after I upgraded to iOS 5.1. It still plays music, but there's no ringtone when there's a call and no "clicky" sound when I type. The volume button and the mute button has stopped working.

      I took it to Genius bar, and the geniuses there told me that it's a hardware issue and suggested that I pay more money to get a new handset. There was no "hardware issue" while I was on iOS 5.01, so I'm not handing over money for something that was obviously a software issue!
