After the Keynote: iOS 5.1 update

Just few hours after the keynote and the presentation of the new iPad, Apple
has released the new iOS update. While I thought, this might not work by now
the update however finished successfully and in a reasonable time. No long
waiting times for the download and the installation process passed by quickly!

So… any improvements felt so far? Cannot say much about it. Of course the official update list doesn’t read spectacular:

About iOS 5.1 Software Update

This update contains improvements and bug fixes, including:

  • 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

What they don’t mention is that you can now update and download Apps via 3G with a total size of 50 MB!

However I noticed something new: While the iPhone 4S had no direct slider (unlike the iPhone 4) to disable the 3G network, it now does! Earlier it was a tale that Apple has not set the slider in the settings page as the chip might not allow a dedicated switchoff of anyone of the both network types as they’re in the same chip! However thanks to the iOS update, you’re now able to control the behaviour of the iPhone 4S the same way as you kew it from the iPhone 4…

Oh… one more thing: It’s said that the battery uptime shall improve with this update… let’s see if that’s true!

As soon as I detect other things that have changed, I’ll post about these.
