Take this one with a grain of salt, but a new report claims that Apple may slip out a modest iOS 4.3.1 update in the next two weeks, mostly to squash a few bugs -- and probably squash jailbreak attempts as well.
BGR is reporting that “minor bug fixes” are on tap for an iOS 4.3.1 update that Apple is planning to release in the next week or two. There’s no word on whether or not the update will also bring feature parity with the Verizon iPhone 4, but BGR does cite a rather specific list of items that iOS 4.3.1 is said to address:
- Baseband updates for the 3GS and iPad (original)
- Fixed memory hang that results in memory corruption when reading large files from USIM filesystem
- 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
We’re guessing this isn’t sampled directly from the iOS 4.3.1 release notes, since Apple has never specifically referred to “jailbreak” by name in this way -- but if this rumor is true, you’ll likely see the hackers hold off releasing a jailbreak for iOS 4.3 for a couple weeks just the same.
