Apple released the latest version of the mobile operating system, iOS 5.1 yesterday after their iPad event. Among a long list of bug fixes, improvements and enhancements, lies a tiny little feature which everyone has been wanting since the day apple announced Photostream – the ability to delete photos from photostream on your iOS device. Many a times, we take multiple pictures of a subject in order to get it right. If you enable Photostream on your iOS device, it will automatically push all the photos you take from the camera to your Photostream. Thereby pushing all the non perfect shots you might have taken. And there was no way to delete them from your Photostream on your iOS device. In iOS 5.1, you can delete individual photos from the Photostream, so that you just have the perfect shots in there. Photostream is synced on all your iOS devices and your Apple TV as well.

Here are the complete release notes for iOS 5.1:


  • Japanese language support for Siri (availability may be limited during initial rollout)
  • Photos can now be deleted from Photo Stream
  • Camera shortcut now always visible on Lock Screen for iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch (4th generation)
  • Camera face detection now highlights all detected faces
  • Redesigned Camera app for iPad
  • Genius Mixes and Genius playlists for iTunes Match subscribers
  • Audio for TV shows and movies on iPad optimized to sound louder and clearer
  • Podcast controls for playback speed and a 30 second rewind for iPad
  • Updated AT&T network indicator
  • Addresses bugs affecting battery life
  • Fixes an issue that occasionally caused audio to drop for outgoing calls
iOS 5.1 is an Over the Air update and should be pushed to your iOS 5 based devices. If you have not seen the prompt, go to Setting -> General -> Software Update to download and install the latest version on your device.
