iOS 5.1.1 breakdown

Just when an iOS 5.1 jailbreak seemed at the horizon for my iPhone 4s apple had to crush my dreams and release iOS 5.1.1! I know that updating the version of iOS is completely optional and that I can avoid it if I'm extremely careful but, I'm one of those people who just can't stand that notification over my settings icon in fact it drives me crazy having to look at that every time I unlock my device. Fortunately a tethered jailbreak has already been proven to work on devices running 5.1.1 while excluding A5 powered devices from the party! Which gives my hope that if I do update the software version then I will be able to jailbreak my iPhone 4s in the near feature. Some of you are probably wondering what this new version of iOS brings to the table, well that's why I'm here!

•Improves reliability of using HDR option for photos taken using theLock Screen shortcut

•Addresses bugs that could prevent the new iPad from switching between 2G and 3G networks

•Fixes bugs that affected AirPlay video playback in some circumstances

•Improved reliability for syncing Safari bookmarks and Reading List

•Fixes an issue where 'Unable to purchase' alert could be displayed after successful purchase

Quite frankly I don't see this as being an absolutely necessary update and still think my iPhone is fine without it! Especially with the untethered iOS 5.1 jailbreak for A5 powered devices looming closer and closer I think I'll wait and see what the DEV team has up their sleeve before I commit to such an unnecessary update.

What do you think about this update? Share your opinion below!
