Can't find anything on it. Is it a small bug fix release or did Apple include any new features? I'm currently running iOS 5.0.1. Do you recommend updating?

Have they. I still just get one large square. Unless my camera settings are wrong I was expecting little squares for each face.

Updated on a Verizon 4 and it killed the phone. Stuck in restore and killed the hardware. Apple had to replace phone.

I didn't have any trouble updating the iDevices in the house. They include 2-iPad2's, iPhone 4s, iPhone4, iPhone 3Gs and an iPod 4 when we find it. All went smooth.

Yes if you're stock. No if you're jailbroken. It's not worth losing the jailbreak over. The iPhoto app is probably the best feature, but it's $5.

you can't use the iPhoto app on anything below 5.1?

It's worth the five bucks. It's a pretty amazing app.

I was just looking at a YouTube video about the app, it does look nice, now I want to get it for my iPad. It doesn't work on the first iPad also.

It has more features on the iPad than it does on the iPhone and it's easier to edit things on the large screen. I have it on my phone, but I was using it on my brother's iPad last night and it's even more impressive on the iPad.

iOS 5.1 also brings back the "Enable 3G" setting that some people used to improve battery life (by disabling 3G). However, if you're using a 4S on AT&T, you don't get it back. You are stuck with your lightning-fast 4G.

<conspiracy theory>Apple sure is letting AT&T get their way a lot these days! What's next? AT&T logo engraved on the next iPhone?
