IOS 5.1 new features

IOS 5.1 just came out a few days ago. Nothing spectacular really but hey what the hell. I had to update even though I didn't want to as I lost my jailbreak...sniff sniff. I like the camera icon in lock screen which you can slide up to access the camera app and App Store download limit over 3G increased from 20 megabytes to 50 megabytes but thats about it really.

Here is a list of the official new features/fixes from apple:

    •    Initial release on iPad (3rd generation)
    •    Enhanced Siri dictation support during text input "on supported devices" (iPhone 4S in 2011) [78]
    •    Carrier updates (e.g. AT&T 12.0).
    •    AT&T indicator now says "4G" when applicable (HSPA+, iPhone 4S only).
    •    Baseband updates.
    •    Battery life reportedly fixed.[79]
    •    Fixes iPhone 4S support for Caller ID Name Display (on supported carriers – i.e. Rogers & Fido in Canada).
    •    Users can now enter any Apple ID to sign-up for an iCloud account. Previously, they had to use (or create a new) me.com email Apple ID.
    •    New Montesi Wallpaper
    •    Images can now be removed manually from the Photo Stream in iCloud. Any photos deleted are now also removed from other iOS devices connected to iCloud.
    •    Shake-to-shuffle bug fix, which caused the Music app to freeze.
    •    The Setup Assistant caused an “infinite setup loop” for some users. When the setup was completed, the iPhone would jump back to a “thank you” screen ad infinitum. Users had to reboot the device to restore functionality.
    •    SpringBoard bug fix, the home screen for the iPhone would sometimes fall into a state when double-clicking the home button would not display the Camera icon.
    •    Permanent Camera icon allows user to switch between camera and locked screen state by swiping vertically.
    •    Bluetooth bug fix; enabling Bluetooth and returning to home screen, the Bluetooth icon still remains in the status bar.
    •    Possible bug fixes on Wi-Fi signal strength on all devices.
    •    Safari, list of Bookmarks no longer automatically displayed when opening the browser if the last page opened before closing was blank.
    •    Safari, address bar added text (Go to this address).
    •    Music, fixed the slow coverflow.
    •    Minor UI changes in Maps.
    •    Genius now available with iTunes Match
    •    Improved Assistive Touch.
    •    Improved Location Services.
    •    License column added, under the About menu.
    •    Support for Siri in Japanese
    •    Possible fix to Outgoing Call No Audio (OCNA) issue.[citation needed]
    •    App Store download limit over 3G increased from 20 megabytes to 50 megabytes
    •    Face detection in Camera app now tag faces with green boxes
    •    Legal changes to Legal Notices in the "about" tab.
    •    Redesigned Camera app on iPad 2
    •    Smart playlists now appear in correct order on iPhone rather than reverse order
    •    New speaker icon next to song name of song currently playing
