iOS 3.2.1 iPad update

The iPad’s operating system has got an update today – to iOS 3.2.1.  The new update primarily addresses some long-reported issues affecting some iPad users.  Here’s the list of what’s new in the update, via MacRumors:

Apple has also released iOS 3.2.1 for iPad, addressing a number of issues including Wi-Fi connectivity issues as promised in an Apple support document posted several months ago:
– Improved Wi-Fi connectivity
– Fixed an issue that could prevent copy and paste of single-page PDF attachments in Mail
– Addressed an issue that could cause video playback to freeze
– Improved reliability of video-out when using iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter
– Added Bing as an option for Safari’s search field

I’ve never had any WiFi connectivity issues with my iPad, nor do I care much about the other changes.  So for now I’ll hold off on the update, as I’ve currently got my iPad jailbroken and have not yet caught up on how things stand with this update and the Spirit jailbreak that I used.

  1. Hi Patrick, I'm in the exact same situation with regards to Jailbreak/Spirit. I'm happy with my iPad too so i'll be holding off also. I may even hold off regardless of updates until the long awaited IOS4 for iPad is available.

  2. I am in the same boat as you. I used Spirit. I don't have Wifi issues except for one location. The other issues aren't that big. So I will hold of as well.

    Typically what must we do when an update comes out? Wait till the folks over at Spirit jailbreak it?

  3. I'm one of the unlucky FiOS folks who is suffering with constant dropping of Wi-Fi signal at home. Excited to hear about this update and hoping it solves the problem!

  4. Hope the Wi-Fi fix is truely a fix. It has been an annoyance for me. It is easy enough to rectify without the update, but the issue prevents Apple from living up to its reputation for making devices that are easy to use and work well.

    I will be looking forward to 'real' bluetooth support. No BT printing?? No exchange of contacts, calendars, etc??

    I also rue the lack of integration. If I make a calendar event, why can't I send that event to my co-workers? Etc, etc, etc… Make the built-in apps more like Microsoft products. (Gasp!) Don't get me wrong; I love what it does, but I hate what it doesn't do.
