Apple Releases iOS 4.3.1 For iPhone, iPad And iPod Touch

iOS 4.3.1

As rumored, Apple has just released iOS 4.3.1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

According to the release notes, iOS 4.3.1 brings several minor fixes and improvements to iOS devices.

Here’s the list of fixes and improvements in iOS 4.3.1:

– Fixes an occasional graphics glitch on iPod touch (4th generation)

– Resolves bugs related to activating and connecting to some cellular networks

– Fixes image flicker when using Apple Digital AV Adapter with some TVs

– Resolves an issue authenticating with some enterprise web services

iOS 4.3.1 is compatible with GSM iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4th generation, iPod Touch 3rd generation, iPad and iPad 2. It’s not compatible with Verizon iPhone.

According to the rumors, Apple may have released iOS 4.3.1 to fix the iPad 2 jailbreak vulnerability and improve battery life as some users have noticed significant decrease in battery life after upgrading to iOS 4.3. Earlier in the week, Apple had released Apple TV Software Update 4.2.1 (iOS 4.3.1) for Apple TV 2G to fix screen flickering issues.

iPhone jailbreakers and unlockers should avoid upgrading to iOS 4.3.1 until iPhone Dev team, Chronic Dev Team and iHh8sn0w release the updated jailbreaking tools for iOS 4.3.1.

But if you don’t care about jailbreaking or unlocking your iPhone then you can update your iPhone with iOS 4.3.1 via iTunes.

As always, let us know how it goes and if you notice anything interesting in the comments.

Update 1:

MuscleNerd, member of the iPhone Dev Team has just warned users to avoid upgrading to iOS 4.3.1:

Unlockers please stay away from today’s iOS 4.3.1! Just to be extra safe, so should future iPad2 jailbreakers (for now)

(It’s very unlikely they fixed the bug in comex’s unreleased iPad2 jailbreak, but you never know. Better to wait for confirmation first.)

Update 2:

iOS 4.3.1 has already been jailbroken using PwnageTool
