View Full Version : iOS 5.1 pre Golden-Master version leaked

The next update for iOS devices has been leaked today.


Somehow, somebody has got a pre-GM version of iOS 5.1 for iDevices featuring Japanese Siri and camera button improvements.

A Portuguese blog is claiming that somehow they have got a pre-golden master release of the next big iOS update, that's it iOS 5.1. Pre-Golden master are versions very different from Betas because they are almost like the final version.

In this release, it appears that Siri is now understanding Japanese language and camera button tweaks are present too.

According to Macrumors:

BlogdoiPhone claims to have somehow obtained a "pre-GM" version of iOS 5.1. GM refers to Golden Master version of the software which is typically the final production version.

Only two new minor findings have been discovered. One is an ever-present camera icon on the lock screen of iOS 5.1. In present versions, the camera button only appears if you double-tap the home button. In this version of iOS 5.1, the camera icon is there at all times, but instead of a button, it's a slider.

Sliding up on the camera icon seems to reveal the Camera app that allows you to take photos without fully unlocking the iPhone. Presumably, this is quicker than the existing solution which actually requires the Camera app to be launched.

The other finding is the presence of a Japanese language setting in Siri. This has been rumored to be an impending feature for Siri.

Apple has been seeding developers with versions of iOS 5.1 beta for some time, but the last release was January 9th. Apple may be waiting to release iOS 5.1 alongside the new iPad which is expected on March 7th. We're not certain about the legitimacy of BlogdoiPhone's screenshots, but carriers presumably do get early builds that may not make it into developer betas.
