    As part of Tim Cook's early statements at today's media event, he announced that iOS 5.1 will be available today. One important addition in the updated operating system is Japanese support for Siri on the iPhone 4S. That support will be rolling out over the next few weeks. iOS 5.1 includes the much-requested ability to delete photos from the Photo Stream, inside the redesigned Camera app.

    Apple says iOS 5.1 and iTunes 10.6 will be available today as free software updates. The new version of iTunes is not yet available for download on Apple's website, and we are waiting for iOS 5.1 to go live.

    Please fix the battery issues for the 4S users. Oh, and better performance in the music app when using iTunes Match.

    I followed on Engadget. Other than Japanese Siri, did they get into iOS 5.1 at all?

    Yup except for support for the new iPad and Siri Japan there is nothing more in iOS 5.1 for current users.

    For the love of all that is holy, PLEASE tell me they finally fixed the music app on iPad. So much broken and missing functionality (not even getting into bad design decisions) and no improvements for months. Let's hope a new hardware device was incentive for them to fix that app.

    I don't think 10.6 is actually out. If you go to the iTunes page, it says 10.6. If you click on the link, its 10.5.3.

    Edit: yep.

    Fixing the fact that safari crashes incessantly on the original ipad (even on macrumors) is a must also.

    I hope iTunes 10.6 fixes the horrible smart playlist bug. I have to keep remaking them and copying the whole list into a regular playlist every time I rate a song. "Live updating" my bottom!

    I hope that 5.1 fixes the disaster that is iTunes Match in the music app.

    I would like to use match on my iPhone but can't because it won't respect the playlist limits, sort orders and constantly crashes.

    If I switch Match off and just sync normally then it works fine (but still not quite as good as pre iOS5).

    So iOS5.1, what have you got?

    This better get fixed. It's become embarrassing to use my iPad 1 because of this issue. Partly because of the issue itself, but mostly because of my visible displays of frustration! :eek:

    With that nice, big data center Apple has we shouldn't have to wait to download 5.1 or the new iTunes.

    If you click on Check For Update or Restore in iTunes, it now says the server cannot be reached. They must be ready to roll out 5.1 soon.

    Anyone have any guesses (wild-ass or educated guesses are welcomed) as to whether iTunes 10.6 will run on WinXP and OS X 10.6 machines?

    Installing as I type this.

    Release notes say battery life issues fixed, and Genius Mixes and Genius Playlists available for iTunes Match.

    No mention of fixing the crippling Invalid SIM bug though :(

    If you look at the diagnostic logs, the crashes are always attributed to a lack of RAM. it may never get fixed. Even if it does, in the mean time, I would recommend using the Atomic Web Browser. It very rarely crashes for me, and has far more features then even the desktop version of safari. The frustrating issue of all of the tabs frequently reloading in safari is also not a problem with Atomic Web.

    Please help the AirPlay mess also!

    I really hope they also fix the DISASTER taking place between iPhone 4S iOS 5.0.1 and AirPlay causing speakers to malfunction and needing to fully reset them.

    Hmm, I think these features will be available in 5.1, even on iPod touch and iPhone devices, judging from ~the new iPad~'s features.

    • Dictation (speech-to-text anywhere)
    • New Default Wallpaper
    [• Handwritten input for Chinese] — was this already a feature?
    • iPhoto app for non-iPad devices (maybe)
    • Resolutionary

    Really? I click check for updates and it tells me the iPhone update server cannot be found. I click restore, resource not available. How are you getting it?
