February 10, 2012 9:30am
Owners of Apple iPads and iPhones may want to mark March 9 on their calendars - that's the day Apple is likely to release the latest update to its iOS operating system.
 
Enthusiast site YourDailyMac.net said Apple published 11 new profiles for iPhone operators, with the files compatible with iOS 5.1 and set for release March 9.
 
"This could indicate that iOS 5.1 will be released around that date, is will be available for the following devices" iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 3G/4G, iPad, and iPad 2," it said.
 
But it also said March 9 could also be the day Apple makes an announcement of the next-generation iPad tablet.
 
YourDailyMac said the profiles it discovered are intended for operators in Japan, France, Greece, Finland, and Sweden.
 
It said updating the profile on the iPhone will make sure the network connection will work correctly after Apple releases iOS 5.1.
 
"The iOS updates are normally rolled out at the same time worldwide, so everyone should expect iOS 5.1 to become available next month," it said. — RSJ, GMA News
