    my friend (a girl...a hot girl) was hesitant on photostream because while she wants her lil sexy pics to be synced back home she doesn't want them to stay on her iPhone...now with iOS 5.1 she can get both...



    OK. Figured it out. You need to toggle photostream off and then on again to activate this for old photos. Seems to work without the toggle for new photos.

    With iOS 5, Music app has become little sluggish comparing to the earlier version. It was also crashing when using the cover flow. So they have fixed these problems.

    They did take my bug report and fix the shuffle and repeat icons so you can now tell if they are turned on. They used to be white when selected and a slightly less white when not selected.



    However, selecting an Artist and tapping a song will still only play that one album though (acknowledged bug).

    And still no lyrics...

    So that feature makes the title of the thread, even though it isn't a new feature?



    Lock-screen access to the camera was available before 5.1 ... I've been using it for (months?) quite a while now!

    With 5.1, the camera can always be accessed from the lockscreen - there's no need to double click the home button.

    You'll want to look at what the new feature is. Swipe, not button.

    Lawsuit for a made-up BS marketing term?



    Get a grip!



    HSDPA+ is faster than the majority of Verizon's "4G" so who should be suing whom really?



    Stupid anti-fanbois....

    So far Safari doesn't seem to be reloading pages at the drop of a hat, and some larger apps appear to be more stable.



    Crossing fingers!

    Mark my words.



    The reality is that even Verizon LTE is not true 4G, and that HSDPA+ for AT&T is comparable in average download speeds to Verizon LTE and the other carriers' claims of 4G service. Further, HSDPA+ is significantly faster than traditional 3G so not sure what you are grousing about... There is no reason to criticize their claim when you look at the offerings and claims of the other carriers.

    Blah... Apples OTA updates are pathetic.



    My phone sits on 'estimating time remaining' until it fails. The ipad wont even connect to the update server, throwing up an error instantly



    but then if i update via itunes, instead of 170megs each, they download 800megs each. Yaay pathetic datacaps. bleh

    Guess its not just me... guess their servers cant handle the damage, even 13+hrs after release



    Ya think that with a small proportion of profit from 172million iOS devices, Apple could increase their server capacity just a little tiny bit, or maybe delay the release around the world to balance it out.

    I downloaded 5.1 last night, in the hopes that we have a fix; but NO GO. Within minutes, my iPad1 was crashing. I still have left everything to do with iCloud off. We need more data from those who seem to think this might be working, because I can not live with this level of perfomance and the word needs to get out on a higher level. Apple needs to be called out on the carpet here!



    Does anyone happen to know Tim Cooks email? I would like to send him a link to this thread, now that he is done with the iPad3 release.



    On a side note, I am experiencing this very same issue on the iPhone4. Has anyone started to notice the problem on this device as well?

    Works perfectly fine.

    Even with iCloud on.

    One person has one problem and automatically it's Apple's fault.

    This doesn't warrant that. Not by a long shot.

    After the update my iPhone 4S has regained the ability to act as a wifi hotspot.



    This feature went horribly unstable for me after I plugged it in via USB and it never recovered.



    I'm hoping it is a fix in software rather than just some cache refresh. I don't fancy re-installing iOS each time I want to use it.



    Fingers crossed.

    9to5Mac posted that there's a security issue with the new camera app, but they also know of a fix.

    Why would you post that now, several hours after it has been debunked? It was a huge embarrassment for them, apparently.



    Nowhere NEAR as much as AppleInsider and Cult of Mac reporting stuff from a fake Phil Schiller Twitter account, but apparently still an embarrassment.
