    I hope it includes a fix for Airplay from the iPhone 4S to third-party speakers, which at the moment is totally FUBAR.

    Any word of the new Siri commands. I'm intrigued :)

    Working perfectly for me across a range of speakers. I did have a few annoying bugs until the most recent AirPort Extreme fix, though.

    Fine, I won't "spam" or say "first comment" as you guys hate.

    I would like to see Siri do much more things (out of beta?) :)

    Does this release include the Wifi On/Off Widget on the notifications screen?

    Can Siri eliminate my enemies now?
    And of course, maps and directions in Canada would be cool too.

    sorry for the layman's question, but does this mean they won't push out a 5.02 for the battery and are heading for the 5.1?

    You are fortunate but this remains a widespread problem for those not using Airport. It works perfectly via iPad 1, MacBook Pro, iPhone 4. Crashes my whole network after one song using iPhone 4S.

    Not at all. Apple frequently works on the next .x iteration while at the same time preparing a smaller .xx fix.

    First I've heard of it. It certainly doesn't mean there's no problem, but because mine's behaving nicely, and because I know other people who aren't having any problems, I'd be inclined to believe that maybe there's something you can identify and adjust to resolve the issue. It shouldn't matter what speakers you have attached. The AirPort Express is only responsible for sending out the audio.

    Edit: Unless you're referring to third-party speakers with built in AirPlay functionality. I shouldn't have overlooked that. It opens up a whole range of potential changes which Apple may have brought about, or bugs which may be associated with manufacturer products.

    I'm glad they're fixing the movie player issue. Whenever I launch a video, my iPhone freezes it, then blanks the screen and reloads it before playing. It's a minor thing, but playback used to be seamless in all previous iOS versions.

    I'm also finding that the periodic keyboard bug has returned, where the keyboard freezes while I'm typing and then suddenly regurgitates whatever I did before it froze. It seems like every iOS iteration had this problem in one update or another.

    Apparently Siri will now administer the Voight-Kampff test when a new voice is detected.
