Apple has released the latest update to iOS, bringing it to version 4.3.1. This update is almost purely a bug fix release, addressing some issues you may have been experiencing with graphics, the Digital AV Adapter, some GSM networks and some enterprise web service. No word on whether it drains battery as fast as 4.3, and CDMA iPhone 4s are still left out.
Here are the release notes accompanying the update:
- Fixes an occasional graphics glitch on iPod touch (4th generation)
- Resolves bugs related to activating and connecting to some cellular networks
- Fixes image flicker when using Apple Digital AV Adapter with some TVs
- Resolves an issue authenticating with some enterprise web services
This update applies to the 3rd and 4th generation iPod touch, iPhone 4 (GSM), iPhone 3GS, iPad and iPad 2. I’m very interested to know why Apple continues to leave the Verizon iPhone 4 out of the loop when it’s come to iOS 4.3+. I find it hard to believe the antenna makes the update that much different.
So, basically, we just have a bunch of bug fixes, which are always appreciated. No new features though. Like I said above, there’s no word yet on whether iOS 4.3.1 drains battery quite as fast as 4.3, which seems to drain almost twice as fast as previous iOS versions.
As always, we recommend you download and install the update. This can be done by clicking on your iOS device in iTunes, and clicking the “Check for Updates” button.
