Apple introduces iOS 5.1.1 update

If you've not checked for software updates on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, you should do it now. As iOS 5.1.1 will be available to download.

Sadly, the update doesn't offer any features. They are likely to be held back for the launch of iOS 6, which is expected to appear on 11 June at the WDC event in San Francisco.

But the update does offer a good number of big fixes. According to the official write-up, those include improved reliability when using the HDR option for photos via the lock screen shortcut, as well as fixes for bugs that could prevent the new iPad from switching between 2G and 3G networks and hamper AirPlay video playback in some circumstances.

There's also now improved reliability for synching Safari bookmarks and Reading List and a fix for an issue where an 'Unable to purchase' alert displayed after a successful purchase.

You can either get the update the 'old' way, using iTunes after plugging the device into a computer. Or you can get it over-the-air (OTA), by heading to Settings > General > Software Update. It's around 54MB in size, so make sure you are in a Wi-Fi zone.
