Anyone think there will be last minute additions that weren't in the 5.1 Betas? I remember iOS 4.1 had HDR that was only GM and not any beta's.

I think we're going to see a panoramic mode come out in the GM.

What do you think?

I would like better Siri location support in Britain. I'm sick of Siri telling me " I can only find business locations in US and in US English only".

I just bought my mom a 4S last week and can't wait for Siri support in Canada either!!

not sure if this will happen, but the new lock screen that was leaked. The one where the camera button is now a swiping motion thing..

Does iOS 5.1 really have any expected features? at least anything announced that most people would care about?

I'm hoping for some big surprises or at least an iOS 5.2 or 6 preview with some actual features. Here are my guesses:
1) Apple TV UI overhaul, not necessarily apps, but something to better organize the internet section and make the 1080p revision a little bit cooler
2) Photobooth / Photos enhancements to show off the new camera and screen
3) Siri on iPad HD/3 (hoping, but got a bad feeling it won't be there)

The one major thing I'm hoping for, but I doubt we're getting is developer access to making widgets to go along with their apps. Notification Center would be a lot more useful if it weren't just those two stock apple widgets.

I'd love that, but it's probably not coming in a small incremental update like 5.1.

I totally agree. That'd be fantastic!

Might be a few slight enhancements but nothing major.

iOS 6 isn't that far away from a developer preview - likely June.

I'm looking forward to camera icon on lockscreen, but not because it's convenient, it's because the slide to unlock bar will be shorter!

Does anyone know if 5.1 fixes the Music Player's lyric display bug on the iPad (meaning that embedded lyrics did not display starting with 5.0).

Facebook integration. A new Facebook username field in the Contacts application and the ability to upload pictures directly to Facebook via Camera Roll.


Wahoo!
Would be useful for those who don't use facebook who just use it to spy on others...
