We've heard of some users having issues with the latest build of iOS, iOS 4.3. If this report is correct, a fix may be soon on the way.

It's being reported that Apple is prepping for an iOS 4.3.1 release. As expected of a small update, 4.3.1 is meant to add some minor bug fixes. If the rumor is true, it will fix some of the issues that have been reported with iOS 4.3. 

Below is the list of rumored fixes coming to iOS 4.3.1 according Boy Genius Report:

  • Baseband updates for the 3GS and iPad (original)
  • Fixed memory hang that results in memory corruption when reading large files from USIM filesystem
  • Fixed problem with NTLM authentication in apps and on websites
  • Fixed issue with the Springboard and 3rd party apps not recognizing the gyroscope on the iPad 2
  • Fixed iPad 2 jailbreak vulnerability

The website also adds that at this point it's not clear whether this update will bring 4.3 to the Verizon iPhone, which didn't see the original 4.3 update last week, something we hope is not a sign of fragmentation with updates in the future.

Of course, as with any rumor, we recommend remaining skeptical until there is more information as we have no idea how reliable their source is. As always, we're sure that more information will come along as more people speak up, but we don't expect a lot as the update is very minor.
