iOS 5.1 download links now live

Following today's new iPad and Apple TV announcements, we now have download links ready to go for iOS users!

Hopefully this time around, Apple finally nails down the nagging battery life issue that has plagued iPhone 4S users since the phone's release last October. Japanese users will also have the opportunity to make Siri their virtual butler.

The most visible new change is a new "slide for camera" feature, as seen below:

The over-the-air update weighs in at roughly 189 MB, and contains this nifty changelog:

- Japanese language support for Siri (availability may be limited during initial rollout) 
- Photos can now be deleted from Photo Stream

- 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 programs and films on iPad optimized to sound louder and clearer 
- Podcast controls for playback speed and a 30-second rewind for iPad
