Apple posts Apple TV 4.4.4, new 5.0.1 build for iPhone 4S

updated 03:05 pm EST, Thu December 15, 2011

Changes so far unclear

Apple has released two minor firmware updates for iOS devices. The first is v4.4.4 for the Apple TV, which implements unspecified bugfixes. The update can be installed automatically via an Apple TV's normal update functions, or manually by technically savvy users with access to the IPSW file.

Unusually, Apple has also published a slightly different version of iOS 5.0.1 for the iPhone 4S. The new build is listed as 9A406. Why Apple would push out such an update is unknown, although any changes are likely to be extremely small given the same version number, and the need for compatibility with apps.

    No OTA Update?

    I am not seeing the update available via "Over The Air" on my iPhone 4S. Is this update only availavle via iTunes?

    All I get is the AppleTV downloading the update - go through the motions and then a error. 4 times now.

    Steve Jobs dies and APple updates are like Microsoft now. So sad.
