The folks over at Boy Genius Report have just received word that Apple’s next iOS release is coming within the next two weeks.

According to BGR’s sources, iOS 4.3.1 will contain several minor bug fixes, including a patch to the iPad 2 jailbreak vulnerability and baseband updates to the iPhone 3GS and iPad…

Here’s the full change-log, courtesy of BGR:

  • 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 still unsure what “Fixed iPad 2 jailbreak vulnerability” means, since Comex has yet to release his untethered iPad 2 jailbreak. Did Apple already figure out the exploit?

Additionally, it seems Apple is also going to update the baseband for the iPhone 3GS and original iPad, which most likely means they’re going to patch that iPad baseband unlock iPhone 3GS owners have been enjoying for so long.

As always, make sure to stay clear of this new iOS update once it becomes available!

    Does this update also solve the battery drain issue?

    • Jon Garrett

      how the hell can anybody keep up with all these firmware updates !! its ridiculous. iOS is either full of bugs that need fixing every month or Apple is just withholding features of the OS to make people think they’re getting something new all the time.

      I agree, they need to address the battery drain issue. Unfortunately it doesn’t appear that it will happen on this update. That sucks.

      • Charlie

        I think if they upgrade the baseband, then the phone will be locked again, then the battery drain issue will be fixed because the reason of the battery drain is the continuous trails of the iphone to register with ATT while it has tmobile.

  • meena

    does this update , modify the iPhone 3gs ‘s whose ipad’s baseband to the natural baseband ??

  • rifkin

    and still no info about UNLOCK .. pretty sad . iHackers doesnt even give information if unlock comes or not.. i think that this time Apple owned unlockers

  • Charlie

    That might be good news, if the unlock for the 3gs is doable for the new baseband, then the battery drain and gps issues we currently have might be solved.

  • Jacer

    spend a few bucks on unlocking? comon iphone cost a few hundreds

  • Leon

    when your device works, just stay as it is!!

  • Lost iPhone Finder

    No need to worry about unlocking no more now that AT&T is buying Tmobile.

    • Charlie

      It is still useful to unlock for those who travel alot and would like to use their iphones in any country

  • Man iOS 4.3.0 is riddled with bugs… Safari crashes, RAM load, crashes overall, terrible battery life, and to top it off the Internet keeps disconnecting for no reason (disconnects at least once a day, and usually happens a couple times in a row)…. I didn’t have any of these problems before (the RAM problem happened before, but not nearly as frequently as it does now).
