Apple just pushed out an update for iOS, bringing the version number up to 5.1.1. The update thus far appears to be primarily bugfixes including tweaks to HDR from the lockscreen camera shortcut, stability switching between 2G and 3G on the new iPad, and other issues. The release notes are below from the update information. 

We're grabbing the OTA update on our devices (for the 4S the update is around 54 MB, for the 4 the update is around 48 MB) in addition to the full ipsw. As usual the links to the update images directly can be found at the awesome iOS-e-lite page for the impatient. We'll update with any notes about major changes beyond what's in the notes above.

    This updates applies to the 3GS as well and surprise, surprise. It finally gets the 3GS back to the responsiveness of iOS 4.x. It's noticeable in switching apps (i.e. multitasking), especially when switching to the Messages app.

    I threw my 3GS after it wouldn't turn on anymore. What a piece of fucking shit phone.

    I sold my 3GS on Ebay for $249 after using it for over 2 years. I paid $199 for it.

    I would gladly pay $249 not to ever use that fucking piece of shit phone.

    I noticed that too. And on the same day I ordered a 4S from my carrier. Coincidence? I THINK NOT!
