Couple of days back, Boy Genius Report reported that Apple is planning to release iOS 4.3.1 within one to two weeks to fix number of bugs and also fix the iPad 2 jailbreak vulnerability.
BGR now reports that iOS 4.3.1 might also improve the battery life of the iOS device. It looks like some users have noticed significant decrease in battery life after upgrading to iOS 4.3.
One of our Apple connects just installed the unreleased and unseen iOS 4.3.1 build on one of our iPhones, and we’ve been playing around with it for a couple days. We reported the changes from iOS 4.3 a few days back, and it really does look as if iOS 4.3.1 will simply fix bugs, hence the version numbering. Battery life seems a tad bit better, though that’s not scientific at all. Our source says we should continue to expect iOS 4.3.1 in the next 1-2 weeks, just as we previously reported.
Apple released Apple TV software update 4.2.1 (which is essentially iOS 4.3.1) to fix issues with flickering, waking from sleep and audio output so it seems likely that Apple will release a software update for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch shortly.
