iOS 5.1?

I anticipate an update to iOS 5.0 in the not too distant future. Alongside reports of faster battery draining I’ve certainly noticed some odd behaviour here and there.

The most obvious is a blanking of the screen when switching between apps, predominantly when switching back to Safari. There have been a few instances of a slight flickering too, although I’ve not pinpointed where this is most evident yet.

Therefore, I expect to see an update in the not too distant future. A huge release like this will always carry a few bugs (truth be told most, if not all, phone software contains a lot of bugs…. the key is to make sure they aren’t critical or particularly noticeable to the end user). So it goes without saying that there will be an update to follow.

Have you noticed any issues with iOS 5.0? I’d be really interested to hear what you’ve found.

  • Apps freeze up. Have to hit the top button to shut the phone down (not completely) and then hit the Home button to wake it back up & swipe back in. The app works again. Mostly noticed this on Tweetbot and a few other apps.

    I forget the other bugs atm…

  • As I continue to explore iOS 5.0 I’m finding that there are quite a few instabilities in the OS. On several occasions I’ve experienced apps crashing, the latest culprit being Newsstand which not only refused to load but dropped the iPad back to the lock screen.

    We definitely need an update in the not too distant future.
