According to the latest report from BGR, the Cupertino, California-based Apple is gearing to release a slight iOS “tweak” within the next two weeks in the form of iOS 4.3.1. It is speculated that the iOS 4.3.1 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch will be release around the first of April.
This software update will address some minor bug issues and security holes. Most specially, the software update is intended to fix the iPad 2 jailbreak vulnerability.
Here are some of the expected improvements of the iOS 4.3.1:
