iOS 5.1.1 Improves HDR Photo And AirPlay

The latest iOS version, available for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users, brings in a series of bug fixes. Apple has announced that users can now download the full update, through iTunes.

An alternative update method involves using the delta update from an iOS device, through the Settings application. The list of devices compatible with the new iOS version includes the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS, third and fourth-generation iPod touch, and all three iPad models.

The company has announced that the improvements offered by iOS 5.1.1 will allow users to snap HDR photos more reliably, when they prefer to access the option via the Lock Screen shortcut. The bug that prevented iPad owners to switch between 2G and 3G networks, is now presumably gone.

Other bug fixes relate to AirPlay video playback, syncing Safari bookmarks and the Reading list. Users who noticed the annoying "unable to purchase" alert, even after a successful purchase, are informed that this issue was also fixed.

Rumours online are rife that Apple is to introduce a major iOS upgrade next month at the Worldwide Developers Conference event, hosted at Moscone West in San Francisco.
