iOS 5.1 Release Date Reportedly Set On March 9th
iOS 5.1 Release Date Reportedly Set On March 9th .
Not sure if you are eagerly waiting to do the next OTA update on your iPhone, but we sure are. The next iOS update is iOS 5.1 (which has already been released in beta). iOS 5.1 launch date now looks like March 9th. YourDailyMac reported this:
“We today discovered that Apple published eleven new profiles for various iPhone-operators. These files are compatible with iOS 5.1 and are set for release on March 9.”
The eleven profiles are for various countries like Japan, France, Sweden, Finland and Greece. By updating the profile to the one released, Apple will make sure that the network works perfectly after Apple released the iOS 5.1 update. The guys at YourDailyMac found out about this in the update code sent through the profiles. 9Th March looks like a possible date for iOS 5.1 release date now.
Normally, iOS updates are rolled out simultaneously worldwide, so hopefully we should see the update going public on or around 9th March.
This is just a rumor though, as quite a lot of speculations exist. Going by the fact that the iOS 5.1 developer beta was released quite sometime back, March 9th could be highly possible. But then, being a rumor, no hopes to be raised yet.
The iOS 5.1 release is set to change certain core features of the iOS 5.0.1 update – including those of the battery issues found on iPhone 4S and iPhone 4. The iOS 5.1 will be applicable for iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, iPad and iPad 2.
Jailbreakers should however be careful. It is mandatory to get SHSH Blobs of iOS 5.0.1 or save the SHSH Blobs of their phone so that they can jailbreak later. This can be done via apps like iFaith.
So with the iOS 5.1 launch date getting up to be around March 9th, what do you think would be the most required updates? The iOS 5.1 beta hasn’t been much in the news recently and there seems to be quite a lot of things to be done on the iOS 5.0.1. iOS 5.1 would also be the first large-level update that can be done via OTA (on WiFi).
