Apple has released iOS 5.1.1 incremental update for public download. The latest iOS 5.1 build 9B206 brings improvements over its predecessor iOS 5.1, fixes number of minor bugs in addition to stability and security improvements.
The download of iOS 5.1.1 Final is available through iTunes for the iPad 2, iPad 1G, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS, as well as the third- and fourth-generation iPod touch.
Except few bug fixes such as improving the reliability of using HDR option for photos taken using the Lock Screen shortcut, issues while switching between 2G and 3G networks, and other minor issues, I have not yet heard about any new features in this build, but the details with full change log will likely surface soon. Stay tuned for additional details as they become available. If you find out anything new about this update feel free to tell us all about it in the comments.
NOTE: Users who want to jailbreak and unlock their iPhone should avoid upgrading to iOS 5.1.1, since the update will patch their existing 5.1 jailbreak. Users who have saved SHSH blobs for 5.1 on their device (not iPhone users who rely on unlock) can safely upgrade to iOS 5.1. iOS hacker @Musclenerd has warned iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users to stay away from jailbreak.
iOS 5.1.1 is out…jailbreakers beware!Owners of iPhone4S or iPad2/3 should stay away from it!
