Apple Releases iOS 4.3.1 with 4 Bug Fixes

| Product News

Apple released iOS 4.3.1 Friday, an update that includes four bug fixes for the mobile operating system. Those bugs involve graphics on the iPod touch, connection issues, a problem with the Apple Digital AV Adapter, and one enterprise issue.

Apple’s patch notes:

  • Fixes an occasional graphics glitch on iPod touch (4th generation)
  • Resolves bugs related to activating and connecting to some cellular networks
  • Fixes image flicker when using Apple Digital AV Adapter with some TVs
  • Resolves an issue authenticating with some enterprise Web services

There are no additional security patches.

The update supports iPhone 4 (GSM model), iPhone 3GS, iPad 2, iPad, iPod touch (4th gen), and iPod touch (3rd gen). You can download it through iTunes when synced to your Mac or PC.



that update was MUCH faster than previous ones.

Must be location and service provider-specific. My download time reads 20 hours - and climbing (location: Dhaka, and an over-subscribed service provider).


Should add, what’s even more fun is that when the connection times out (after a painful 6 - 14 MB), the download resets to zero.

“Our revels now are envied…!” (General Chang to Captain Kirk; Star Trek, The Undiscovered Country) - and about as much fun as Kirk was having at that moment.


To conclude this sad saga, for a real barrel of laughs, I get to do this all over again for my iPad.

Oh, and it’s not just that the connection and download speeds are so slow that they time out on occasion. Oh, no. That would be too easy. It’s that the power goes down at multiple and inexplicable times throughout the day (like 0400 this morning - who’s up using power (besides me) at 0-bloody-400 in the morning such that they need to shut it down? And of course, when the power goes down, the cable modem switches off and, ta-daaah!, I get to re-do the download thing. From 0 MB. I am now at my fourth (that’s right, as in 1, 2, 3, 4th) attempt at this on the iPad.

But I digress. I can neither refute nor confirm that the download was any faster than the previous one.


My download was quick, no problem, but when I synced my iPhone (and iPad 1) prior to the upgrade, it “optimized” all of my photos.  All 10,000 of them, and it took three hours to do it!

The actual upgrade process took less than ten minutes, though.


the o/s upgrade screwed up my phone.  all content has bn wiped out and the phone is now stuck at Recovery Mode.  Restoring the phone does not work, as it only gets up to firmware restore and then dies.  What’s going on?  anyone?
