Apple has released its latest update for its iOS mobile operating system, version 5.1.1.  It claims to improve reliability of some options and remove some bugs but it does not address the wireless connectivity problems.

The new version of the mobile OS can be downloaded over the air and improves the reliability of the AirPlay video playback feature which had been under-performing in some circumstances.

According to Apple’s release notes the update also includes the following:

  • Improvement to the reliability of using HDR option for photos taken using Lock Screen shortcut
  • Addresses bugs that could prevent the new iPad from switching between 2G and 3G networks
  • Improved reliability for syncing Safari bookmarks and Reading List
  • Fixes a bug where an ‘Unable to purchase’ or ‘Purchase Unsuccessful’ message is being displayed after purchase has been successful.

Not included among the listed fixes are any references to battery-life or Wi-Fi connectivity upgrades – two issues that have caused considerable annoyance among users of the third-generation iPad.

One bit of advice: if you should choose to upgrade your iDevice to iOS 5.1.1, don’t do it through iTunes, but instead download it from your device itself at Settings > General > Software Update. The 5.1.1 update’s iTunes-download file size for a first-generation iPad is 726.1MB; downloading it using the iPad’s Software Update function is a mere 42.3MB.

This update comes amid reports that the launch of iOS 6 is little over a month away. The company’s annual WWDC developer’s conference has been booked for June 11 in San Francisco and has often provided the venue for important software announcements.
