Apple releases iOS 5.1.1

iOS 5.1.1 was released today. It isn't a major upgrade, as it just is a bug fix release. Here's what it addresses:

  • 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
It also addresses three critical Safari vulnerabilities:
  • A maliciously crafted website may be able to spoof the address in the location bar
  • Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to a cross-site scripting attack
  • Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution
More information about this update can be found on Apple's website or on the security page for the iOS 5.1.1 update.
