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.

Posted Image
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.

Posted Image
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.

All I want from 5.1 is less dependency on the Internet for simple tasks in Siri, like call somebody, or send an SMS, this sort of simple thing should require Siri to contact apples servers.

The camera function, is neither here nor there for me.

It does seem a little weird Siri needs to keep in contact with apple servers for simple task. Maybe it's because it's still in beta and they use it for trouble shooting?

Sew that phone is nothing but trouble. Next you'll be telling me it caused her to get a speeding ticket.

Lol... You will keep JZ.

Anyway it's all good now the android is in the bin, and after a trip to the apple store 2 hours ago, she has a shinny new iPhone 4s, and is a happy little Vegemite.
