    9to5 Mac reports that iOS 5.1 has finally been released today. It was mentioned during the launch of the new iPad in San Francisco today that the new iPad was running iOS 5.1. The new OS seems to have a lot of features for the photography aspects of iOS devices, including the ability to delete photos from Photo Stream, an always-visible camera shortcut on Lock Screen for the iPhones and iPod touch 4[SUP]th[/SUP] gen, the ability for camera face detection to now highlight all detected faces, and a redesigned camera app for iPad. Other general fixes include the addressing of bugs affecting battery life, which is bound to please a lot of people, as well as podcast controls for playback speed and a 30-second rewind for iPad, Genius mixes and Genius playlists for iTunes Match subscribers, louder and clearer audio for TV shows and movies on iPad, an updated AT&T network indicator, and a fix for an issue that caused audio to sometimes drop for outgoing calls.

    The update is out now, so why not try connect to iTunes now and download it, or simply go to Settings> General>Software Update to download wirelessly.

    To add to this, if you've been on the fence about jailbreaking NOW is the time to do it! Once you update to 5.1 you'll lose all options to do so for the foreseeable future.

    I updated last night on my original iPad 64gb. No problems with the the update like I had with one of the previous updates where I lost all my data. Can't really tell any difference. Poked around the various screens and settings. I think the update will only positively affect the newer iPads but I could be wrong. I do know that the only way I could get the updated ipages was to be on the new iOS.

    The list of changes was limited. But being able to delete individual photos from photo stream ought to make a number of people happy, judging by repeated questions along those lines previously.

    I kept erroring out yesterday until late evening. You might try later today. The servers may be getting hammered again.

    Did my iPhone 4S and touch 4 several hours ago. Took 15 mins and 30 mins respectively OTA. No hiccups.

    That followed upgrading my iPad 1 and 2 the previous night. iPad 2 took 15 mins. iPad 1, I set up, went to bed and found done when I woke. No hiccups with with either of those upgrades.

    Now have one more to upgrade -- my husband's iPad 1.

    Just downloaded iphoto....i know its ony £3 but i would have expected Apple to have included this in the update.....for free !


    The upgraded - camera facility is better - the camera button on the right hand side of the screen is a great improvement......and being able to delete individual photos is good too.


    Other than these, i cant see any other improvements...or have i missed something?

    Downloaded the latest software version iOS 5.1 on my iPad 2 but have been experiencing irregular shutting down or locking of the iPad. Has anyone else experienced this? What do I do? I love my iPad and now am sorry I downloaded the newer software. :-(

    Yes. I have had my ipad go into "sleep" mode while typing. This has only happened twice over the weekend ( hours of constant use). I didn't think much of it until reading your post. Hopefully this won't continue.

    Try restarting and / or resetting if you're experiencing probs with shutting down unexpectedly.
