The Harry Potter franchise is one of the most popular of all time. What started off as a few books has spanned a lengthy series of feature films and merchandise.

Of all the essential everyday uses our smartphones give us, the simplest – and perhaps, the most vital – is the alarm clock.

Well, it looks like we didn’t have to wait long for that iOS 5.1 update promised for today. The update is already rolling out to iPhones, iPads and compatible iPod touches. That brings with it a number of improvements and bug fixes, including the previously-announced Japanese language support for Siri, a redesigned camera app for iPad, the ability to delete individual photos from Photo Stream and, somewhat curiously, an “updated AT&T network indicator.” What’s more, as previously rumored, the camera shortcut is now also always visible on the lock screen for iPhone and iPod touch users.

Apple’s iOS isn’t exactly a cutesy operating system. Steve Jobs and co set out to make the iPhone, iPod and iPad OS as usable as possible without adding unnecessary bells and whistles.

Copic is one way of doing just that, although unfortunately you’ll need to have a jailbroken iOS device in order to take advantage of this little bundle of personality. Thankfully that is a whole lot easier to achieve now the new jailbreak tools have been released, and everyone can take advantage of all the joys that come with hacking an iOS device.
