Apple has released a bugfix update for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, incrementing to version 5.1.1. The 54.5MB file addresses some outstanding issues that were either overlooked or introduced in 5.1, such as HDR photo taking and AirPlay video playback.

If you’re already running a device with iOS 5.0 or above, you can go to Settings/About/Software Update to download the file over the air. If not, head on over to iTunes with your phone or tablet plugged in.

The full changelog is as follows:

- Improves reliability of using HDR option for photos taken using the Lock Screen shortcut
- Addresses bugs that could prevent the new iPad from switching between 2G and 3G networks
- Fixes bugs that affected AirPlay video playback in some circumstances
- Improved reliability for syncing Safari bookmarks and Reading List
- Fixes an issue where ‘Unable to purchase’ alert could be displayed after successful purchase

    Take note Google, Samsung, HTC, Motorola. This is how software updates are supposed to be deployed.

      Actually I much prefer being stuck on a device with 2 year old software.

      Android is the best…Apple sucks…poo-poo on you…

    almost 1-2 updates per year… better than 20 updates x 150 different devices = 3000 updates

      That’s if you’re lucky enough to actaully get an update!

    in a week this will probably have a higher percentage of installs than ICS. Might take 2 weeks.

      That’s an Apples to Oranges comparison.

      It’s not really relevant to compare install percentages on an OS used by only one company and on just a few devices to an embedded OS heavily customized and used by a large portion of the industry.

      But go ahead, enjoy your pissing match. I for one will just get back to enjoying my Galaxy Nexus and iPad 3.
