Apple unveils new Apple TV, releases iOS 5.1
  • Amidst the iPad frenzy, Apple announced the new Apple TV and released iOS 5.1
Apple, along with announcing the iPad, also raised the curtains on the new Apple TV and iOS 5.1

Apple TV received its much awaited upgrade, the ability to play 1080p content while maintaining the same form-factor and running the same iOS version as its predecessor. In order to supplement the new Apple TV's 1080p capabilities, the iTunes Store has also been updated to allow purchasing of high definition content. The pricing for the new Apple TV will remain the same as its predecessor at $99.

The other announcement was the release of iOS 5.1, which so far seems to incorporate various bug fixes, along with the earlier announced Japanese language support for Siri. iOS 5.1 also allows users to delete individual photos from photo stream. Camera face detection now highlights all detected faces.

iOS 5.1 brings a new camera app for the iPad and podcast controls for playback speed on all devices, amongst other miscellaneous features and bug fixes.

iOS 5.1 is now available as an over-the-air upgrade to users all across the world.
