The international Galaxy S II has already received the update to Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, leaving the sized-up Galaxy Note behind on Android 2.3. Today, several European users are reporting that their devices have received an OTA update notification that brings their phone-tablet hybrid into 2012 with the Android 4.0 update.
Of course, this is a Samsung device, and Samsung has revamped their Touchwiz UI overlay for the Note, which looks a lot more like its Gingerbread variant. Other features in the upgrade include a new and improved S Note application, a new S Memo widget, and the Premium Suite Shape Match and My Story applications. Of course, you’ll get the performance improvements that come with ICS as well.
Owners of the AT&T-branded Galaxy Note will have to wait for the update to pass through carrier testing, which tends to add 1-3 months to the process. Hopefully that process has already begun, and AT&T Note owners will be getting their own taste of Ice Cream Sandwich very soon. We’re leaning towards the update coming sooner than later, as an AT&T-branded Galaxy Note was spotted at CTIA this week.
It seems that Apple have been really listening and responding to user complains since the iOS 6 upgrade.
Many users have been raising calls and complains to Apple regarding some bugs noticed on iDevices since upgrading it to the latest release.
Apple has released a quick response to the user requests, and released the first update and named it as iOS 6.0.1.
The new update is targeting the following minor fixes:
- Fixes a bug that prevents iPhone 5 from installing software updates wirelessly over the air
- Fixes a bug where horizontal lines may be displayed across the keyboard
- Fixes an issue that could cause camera flash to not go off
- Improves reliability of iPhone 5 and iPod touch (5th generation) when connected to encrypted WPA2 Wi-Fi networks
- Resolves an issue that prevents iPhone from using the cellular network in some instances
- Consolidated the Use Cellular Data switch for iTunes Match
- Fixes a Passcode Lock bug which sometimes allowed access to Passbook pass details from lock screen
- Fixes a bug affecting Exchange meetings
This update gave us one message from Apple, which says that I’m listening and I do really care to give you a flawless products.
It has been noticed that with the latest updates for Samsung Galaxy Note, They were trying to push Samsung Keyboard in On-handed Operation as the default keyboard.
Many users were not able to adjust with that, since they got used to the old style already.

– Go to Settings
– Go to One-handed operation
– Remove the check box from Samsung Keyboard
– Now you got your old style keyboard back

iOS 5.1 is the next major update to Apple’s latest mobile operating system iOS 5.
iOS 5 was released on October 12, 2011, right before the iPhone 4S arrived. Since then, Apple has released iOS 5.0.1 which was supposed to fix battery life issues, but hasn’t solved them for all users.
The next big software update for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch is iOS 5.1. This update is expected to contain a number of bug fixes, another attempt at battery life fixes and most exciting — possible Siri updates to enhance the app.
iOS 5.1 Release Date
iOS 5.1 was released to Apple developers on November 28th, 2011. This beta has been in the hands of developers for a week now, but Apple has not made an official iOS 5.1 release date announcement.
Because Apple wants to fix the pervading battery issues, we expect that Apple will push the iOS 5.1 release out sooner rather than later. It is very likely that Apple will release iOS 5.1 before the end of December.
If things go well during the testing with developers, we may see iOS 5.1 released as early as next week.
Stay tuned for more iOS 5.1 release details as they are announced.
iOS 5.1 Features
One of the biggest targets for Apple is to fix the elusive iPhone 4S battery issues.
Reports suggest that iOS 5.1 hasn’t fixed the iPhone 4S battery life issues that have been hampering the iPhone 4S for a number of users, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a fix in here for some users.
Or at least Apple’s latest attempt to fix the battery life bug.
New Keyboard in Mail
Another new feature is a slightly redesigned keyboard in the mail. This change is visible in the recipient field of the Mail app, where you now have access to an @ symbol to speed up entering email addresses.
iTunes Match Over 3G
New to iOS 5.1 is the ability to sync and stream your iTunes Match music over 3G. This is a handy feature, but could quickly eat through the data plans of many users, so be sure that you use this feature wisely.
Siri App Control
The most exciting iOS 5.1 feature that has been rumored is the ability to do more with Siri. We have yet to see anything about this in the iOS 5.1 beta, but Apple could be sharing this feature with just a few developers right now.
Reportedly, Siri will soon be able to perform the following actions.
- Interact with Apps – like to do apps.
- Turn Bluetooth and WiFi on and off
- Capture a video or photo
While it would be awesome to see these features in December, Apple may hold off on updating Siri until next year.
What Devices will run iOS 5.1
Like the iOS 5 upgrade, the iOS 5.1 update will work on the following devices.
- iPhone 3GS
- iPhone 4
- iPad 2
- iPod Touch 3rd and 4th Generation
Even the iPhone 3GS, which is more than two years old, handles this new operating system well.
iOS 5.1 Upgrade
Like the iOS 5.o.1 update that was released on November 10th, we expect to see iOS 5.1 available as a downloadable over the air update.
All you should need to do is connect to WiFi, download the update and wait for it to install. You should make sure you have a backup though.
iOS 5.1 and iPhone 4S Jailbreak
If you have been following the status of the iPhone 4S Jailbreak, you’ll know that progress has been made, and the iPhone 4S has been jailbroken.
Unfortunately, the iPhone 4S jailbreak is not available to the general public yet. We recommended staying away from iOS 5.0.1 if you want to jailbreak, because it may patch holes that iPhone hackers use to jailbreak your iPhone.
There is no official word from the iPhone Dev Team or the Chronic Dev Team, but if you do want to jailbreak your iPhone 4S, you may want to pass on the iOS 5.1 update.
Waiting shouldn’t be that hard to do, unless the Siri integration is really available.
Apple has today released its iOS 5.0.1 update (build 9A405) to address battery issues, add multitouch gestures to the iPad 1 and more. The update is now available in iTunes, and is also available over-the-air to existing iOS 5 users.
Some users may not see the over-the-air update immediately, so either be patient or just use the iTunes update method. We recommend waiting and doing the update OTA because the update experience is much quicker this way, due to the smaller size of the update file (the iPad 2?s update is only 34.9MB OTA), and very slick.
The fixes that are listed are:
- Fixes bugs affecting battery life
- Adds Multitasking Gestures for original iPad
- Resolves bugs with Documents in the Cloud
- Improves voice recognition for Australian users using dictation
Apple has also included an explicit fix for the security issue discovered by security researcher Charlie Miller just a few days ago. In addition, there is a fix for the iPad Smart Cover security glitch, which would allow users access to your last running app.
To get the update now, plug your device into iTunes and click update, or if you’re already on iOS 5, you can go to Settings>General>Software Update to update your device.
Apple announced the new update for iTunes to fix some known issues with the earlier version.
In my opinion, Apple is preparing the final release for the new iTunes to be compatible with the new iOS, and they will keep releasing more fixes like this more often in the next few days.
What’s new in iTunes 10.4.1
iTunes 10.4 is now designed for OS X Lion. You can now use iTunes with OS X Lion’s new full-screen app capability, which allows you to use iTunes and other apps without distractions. Navigate between your full-screen apps with a simple gesture.
iTunes 10.4.1 provides a number of improvements, including:
• Fixes a problem where the media keys on some third-party keyboards work inconsistently with iTunes
• Addresses issues with adding artwork to songs and videos
• Resolves an issue which may cause iTunes to become unresponsive when purchasing an HD movie
• Fixes a problem where iTunes may take longer than expected to open after waking your Mac from sleep
