For some users iOS 5 proved to be the main enemy of the battery autonomy. iOS 5.0.1 solved the problem for some users but for others Apple was forced to admit the second time that launched a version of iOS with problems and now is working on iOS 5.1.

iOS 5.1 beta 2 was released this week and it is expected to solve all the problems with the life battery, the solution could reach soon. Meanwhile an Italian forum made a small battery test on the iOS 5.1 beta 2 and they found that compared to iOS 5.0.1 there is a marginally improved autonomy.

We talk about a few extra minutes of usage for an iPhone 4S but they say that Apple keep open processes in beta versions, processes that improve the battery autonomy. In my experience, what you find in beta verison, you will find in the final version and the battery life has not improved, in my case, at the transition from beta to a final version.

I can say that in all versions of iOS 5.0.1 beta for iPhone 4S I get over 6 hours of usage on making any on the device but to be honest I do not think that I’ll obtain the same thing from any version of iOS 5.x.

This week was talked about the progress made by Pod2G in the development of untethered jailbreak solution for iOS 5/5.0.1 news now come with us. iPod Touch 4G and Apple TV 2G are now untethered jailbroken on iOS 5.0.1 thanks to exploit discovered by Pod2G and things seem to go in the right direction in the present. iPhone 3GS, iPad, iPad 2 and iPhone 4S are the only devices that have not yet been jailbroken, but assumes that by the end of the week we will see at least some of them compatible with the new solution.

Apple TV 2 4.4.3 untethered. Done also. Rush mode = off for today. Will be able to test in some days, thanks to @firecore that’d ship me an Apple TV 2 for testing ! Thanks mate ! That’s awesome.

Pod2G was based on information published by i0n1c about how iOS can be exploited and now it seems that very soon manages to implement the solution to jailbreak to Apple products. The hope is that Apple to launch iOS 5.1 as soon as the solution to be compatible with this version of the operating system and Pod2G to launch and make millions happy when we hear ad appear.

Soon it will fulfill two months since iOS 5 is available to users and from when we do not have an untethered jailbreak solution available. In desperation to make untethered jailbreak or jailbreak for for their own iDevice, some users are willing to buy and download any alleged jailbreak solutions.

Some pay tens of dollars on solutions that do not work, while others get all kinds of dubious sites of some false “jailbreak teams” and download programs that infect computers with malware, keyloggers, viruses, etc…

If you start to download jailbreak solutions that you not have heard then think well before you run this program on your computer. If you do not have antivirus or you have a weak antivirus it might to wake up with a infected computer by a malware that might steal personal data and could send them to the server of some hackers.

This kind of practice is for several years on the internet and not infrequently there were users who complained that their computers infected with viruses or malware after they have used.

A week ago we found that iOS 5.1 could bring more functions for Siri personal assistant and with his help we can take pictures, record videos, open applications, but the first beta version of the new operating system does not let you to understand that this thing will take place. In the changelog for iOS 5.1 beta 1 Apple tells developers of iOS applications that are available a new series of APIs that integrate the applications into 3rd party some system functions after dictation of Siri.

A source confirmed to Ars that a handful of the new iOS 5.1 APIs allow developers to specifically handle the response from Siri’s speech-recognition servers. These APIs don’t allow developers to integrate Siri support for controlling an app the way that Apple has with, say, Messages or Reminders. But it does open up the possibility to better handle text dictation input.

Unfortunately Apple does not give us too much in this version of iOS 5.1 beta 1 but that does not mean that Siri functionality will be extended to the official release of iOS 5.1. Apple has a habit to change things in the last minute so maybe two or three beta versions we shall see later really useful features available for Siria and developers.

A few months ago Chronic Dev Team boasts the most advanced solution built around untethered jailbreak several exploits found in Apple’s iOS 5. A month and a half after the release of iOS 5, Chronic Dev Team has released this solution, even more still working on it today… and will launch a program to monitor the crash from our iDevice.

Chronic Dev Team will publish today an article on its blog that will explain everything about this new program and will help them to develop faster the jailbreak solution for us but is largely useless. So far nothing is known about the functionality of this new program but we know that untethered jailbreak solution will not be launched today, so do not expect it.

In fact no other pseudo-solutions team jailbreak developer will not release anything and yes, I know that is rumored to launch a possible solution of untethered jailbreak today but that is a great trick and I need to warned you about this kind of tricks. In conclusion, untethered jailbreak will wait a few weeks in the computers of those who develop it.
