iOS 4.3.1 squashed a slew of bugs, but the update failed to address several issues, such as FaceTime-related problems on the iPad 2, as well as a shorter battery life on first generation iPads, iPhones and iPod touches.
According to BGR, a new iOS update is already in the works, and should hit the streets within the next two weeks. Named iOS 4.3.2, the new version of iOS 4.3.x will bring its own set of enhancements, and will address “bugs that have affected users.” The site does not give additional details about what the new version of iOS will actually fix, but battery life and camera issues will most likely be on the list.
Since iOS 4.3 hit store shelves on March 9, Apple has been working double shifts to update its operating system. Barely two weeks after the launch of iOS 4.3, BGR announced that the release of iOS 4.3.1 was imminent, and as it turned out, iOS 4.3.1 was available four days later, on March 25. If BGR proves yet again to be accurate, iOS 4.3.2 should be released before April 21.
Also note that just like iOS 4.3.1, the update is also expected to fix “security issues,” and will most likely patch the exploit used in the recently released iOS 4.3.1 untethered jailbreaks. Since the launch of the iPad 2, Apple has been actively cracking down on jailbreaking: the iPad 2 came with extra fail-safes to help make the tablet immune to jailbreaks, and newly found exploits are patched shortly after – and in some cases even before – they are used in jailbreak tools.
