iOS 4.3.4

Apple has released new updates for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS, 3rd and 4th Gen iPod touch, and all iPad models.  The updates don’t add any new features or include bug fixes, they’re simply a security update to plug a PDF hole used in a web-based jailbreak solution at JailbreakMe.com. So, you can update or not update without much effect unless you are using or plan to use a PDF-exploit-based jailbreaking method.

iOS 4.3.4 applies to all of the iOS devices listed above save the Verizon Wireless iPhone 4; its update is iOS 4.2.9.

To download and apply the updates for your device or devices, simply connect to iTunes and check for latest updates.

Yeah, so… umm… where’s Mac OS X Lion?

Thanks Jon

So, Dan recently asked:

What is your best guess for when the iOS 5 update will be released for the iPad 2?
