Apple releases iOS 5.1.1 for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch

Apple today released iOS 5.1.1 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. According to Apple’s release notes, iOS 5.1.1 contains several improvements and bug fixes, including improvements for HDR photos taken using the Lock Screen shortcut, a fix for bugs that could prevent the third-generation iPad from switching between 2G and 3G networks, fixes for bugs that affected AirPlay video playback, improved reliability for syncing Safari bookmarks and Reading List, and a fix for an issue where an “Unable to purchase” alert could be displayed following a successful purchase. iOS 5.1.1 is compatible with the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad, iPad 2, third-generation iPod touch, and fourth-generation iPod touch, and is available now via the update feature in iTunes or as an over-the-air update. To update your iOS device over-the-air, open Settings, tap on General, and tap on Software Update.

I wasn’t having any of these issues supposedly fixed by 5.1.1, but I was hoping for a little work on the Music app for iPad.  Nope, still the same junky UI as before :-(

Personally, this update didn’t fix any of my iPhone 4’s issues.

It still won’t vibrate, and my iPod (Music) App is messed up because when I go to the Artists, it’s in alphabetical order until I get to Neon Trees which is under O and the Artists who start with O are under P and so on.

But I wonder if it’s affecting other people or just me…

Save yourselves the grief and don’t download the update.  My phone has been junk ever since I ran the download. I have lost most of my notification sounds or the ability to play any music through the internal speakers.  It also has reduced ability to be charged or plugged into audio sources.
Don’t download this and if you already have be sure to email your issues to as you will have to pay $35to talk to tech support
