Testing on iOS 5.1 Golden Master Reportedly Complete Ahead of iPad 3 Launch






According to Chronic Wire, iOS 5.1 has satisfied the requirements of Apple's quality assurance testing and is now ready to be released to the public, presumably just prior to the iPad 3 launch within the next few weeks. The report claims that iOS 5.1 is now in the golden master stage with build 9B176 being the final build to be issued for public release.
Quote:
The build number of iOS 5.1 Gold Master is 9B176 according to a very solid source, although three different partners who are testing the Gold Master claim to have slightly (by single digits) higher builds numbers on their copies, I'm assuming that's because right now it'd make sense for those people to be testing what will soon be released as 5.1.1, so I've disregarded the claims.
The quality assurance phase for iOS 5.1 is said to have taken place over the past three weeks, with work by Apple and its carrier partners to ensure that as many bugs as possible have been eliminated.

iOS 5.1 reportedly includes Japanese Siri support and a new camera slider, as well two other significant features that have yet to be revealed to the public.

How jailbreaking will be affected given the OTA. Astute of iPhone OS.

iOS 5.1 feature: Every time you use Siri, Apple gives an orphan a kitten.

Anyone want to take a stab at the other two features?

NFC?
1080 Support?

I hope Siri becomes fully functional in the UK... I can't wait for the day I can say, "hey, Siri, how do I get home from here?"

Wow maybe they'll ad Siri to the iPhone 4.
Not that I really believe that.

Here's hoping that my 4S battery indicator will still be green after 7pm.

I would pretty well HOPE this was complete before the iPads had their iOS images installed. Good grief.

No I get that, but there would be software to support it, correct? Obviously my iPhone 4S won't magically get NFC. I'm just saying, maybe that's part of the software support.

For me the only two important things (hopefully) in 5.1 are fixes once and for all for iPhone 4S battery life and Invalid SIM bugs. These are way overdue

I want to some of those fancy maps they've been working on (after purchasing that 3D mapping company a while back).

And Siri on my Pad dammit!
