Apparently, one of the Apple Engineer installed an unreleased iOS 4.3.1 build on BGR’s Jonathan S. Geller’s iPhone. Their story regarding iOS 4.3.1 build sounds just as “random” as the iPhone 4G story.
Reportedly, iOS 4.3.1 will simply fix bugs, with substantial improvement in battery life and should be available in the next 1-2 weeks, as confirmed earlier. Here is the full change log:
iOS 4.3.1 Change Log (Unofficial):
- Baseband updates for the 3GS and iPad (original)
- Fixed memory hang that results in memory corruption when reading large
- files from USIM file system
- Fixed problem with NTLM authentication in apps and on websites
- Fixed issue with the Springboard and 3rd party apps not recognizing the gyroscope on the iPad 2
- Fixed iPad 2 jailbreak vulnerability.
So how did Apple staff, known for keeping developments safe with extremely tight controls and security measures, manage to lose track of an unreleased iOS 4.3.1 build? How? I still wonder…
Apple rolled out iOS 4.2.1 (iOS 4.3.1) for Apple TV2 yesterday, so we can assume that this update will be rolled out for other devices as well by this weekend. We will update you as we get more information on it. Just follow us on Twitter or become a Facebook fan.
