Apple is reportedly set to release an update to its iOS mobile operating system within the next two weeks to address minor bug fixes and jailbreaking vulnerabilities.

According to Boy Genius Report, Apple's iOS 4.3.1 update should fix some minor bugs and increase stability for iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches running iOS 4.3. BGR lists several changes, including base-band updates for iPhone 3GS and iPad and an iPad 2 jailbreak vulnerability fix.

Also said to be included in the update:

  • Fixed memory hang that results in memory corruption when reading large files from USIM filesystem
  • Fixed problem with NTLM authentication in apps and on Web sites
  • Fixed issue with the Springboard and third party apps not recognizing the gyroscope on the iPad 2

The exact date of the release is unclear, though BGR's sources say it should be available within two weeks. Those sources are also unsure as to whether the update will be made available for Verizon customers, integrating the iOS update schedules.
