    If I am not experiencing any of the bugs & issues this update was released for, is it really worth loading ? More so when there have been further problems reported by those that 've taken the plunge on their iPhones & iPads

    Hi Tara, I was going to ask the question in a different way: what does this new update do? And I'm surprised there isn't a whole lot of discussion on it already! I was tempted to go the the update page and see what it had to say, but I'll bet it won't tell the whole story.

    Cheers!

    I wouldn't upgrade if you are jail broken as there isn't any compatible jailbreak for this version.

    Since you are into posting links, that explain the issues experienced with an iPhone, that link gives you some pretty good idea on what you'll encounter with updating the iPhone. I'm assuming you are wanting to know about your iPad. Here are some links that you might want to further read, FROM this forum:

    http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-os/75229-ios-5-1-1-issues.html

    http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-os/75628-does-5-1-1-improve-battery-life.html

    http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-general-discussions/75218-anybody-upgrade-ios-5-1-1-a.html

    Shed light on the aftermath? Only time will tell, this was just released a week ago.

    So I ve done it just to stop the nagging feeling......and to load future updates quicker! Above all to stay updated!

    I haven't noticed any anomalies and it took only 5 mins.....

    Really, regarding your concerns of after math...it's hard to say if there is any yet, since the updateis fairly new. I updated mine a day after it was released and my iPad is running fine. I use it quite a lot here on this forum and have not noticed any issues ...for me at least.

    Shannon-what version are you currently running on your iPad.

    Verify by going to settings/general/version.

    The latest update is 5.1.1 -- if you are at 4.3.5, you will not have the ability yet to do it over the air (OTA) and will need to do a direct wire connection to iTunes on your computer.

    I have a question, I was over on the Apple forums and was reading that a few people have been having issue with the 5.1.1 update causing their Ipad2 and Ipad3 bricking the ipads. I have looked through these forums and havent seen anything about this, I was just wondering. Me and my wife are working in Kuwait and are wanting to update our Ipads with the new IOS 5.1.1 and if there is an issue I dont have a local apple store to run to and get it fixed. we are currently running IOS 5.1.

    In your case I would sit tight for a few weeks until these "rumors" are verified or vilified. Or as an alternative, if one of you can go without in a pinch, update the lesser needed device for a test (and be prepared in the short run for it to fail).

    Good luck,

    Hi All,

    I encountered a problem when tried to updated my iPad 3 IOS 5.1 to ISO 5.1.1. Here is the error message that came "ipad could not be updated because the firmware file is not compatible".

    Firstly I though this error caused by corrupted downloaded restore ipsw, then I trid to re-downloaded the file and tried to restore my iPad but the same error message still came up. I'm sure that I have down loaded the right IOS 5.1.1 for my ipad. Have any one experiences this problem and solved it ?

    Appreciated all the suggestion and help.


    Thanks.

    Haris
