I shoot from my Lock Screen in standard and HDR modes all the time and don’t think I’ve encountered this issue. Even if you haven’t, reliability improvements are always a good thing.
Here’s the list of fixes addressed in this update:
- Improves reliability of using HDR option for photos taken using the Lock Screen shortcut
- Addresses bugs that could prevent the new iPad from switching between 2G and 3G networks
- Fixes bugs that affected AirPlay video playback in some circumstances
- Improved reliability for syncing Safari bookmarks and Reading List
- Fixes an issue where ‘Unable to purchase’ alert could be displayed after successful purchase
The update is available for the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS, third- and fourth-generation iPod touch, and all iPad models. The full update is available by syncing your device through iTunes. You can also update directly on your device through the iPhone’s Settings app, General > Software Update.
