iOS 5.1 to add Japanese Siri support, new lock screen


 

Apple iOS’ upcoming 5.1 update will bring two confirmed goodies, according to a post by BGR. The GM version that will apparently be released to the public around March 9 will add Japanese language support for Siri. Although Siri’s language addition will only be helpful to Japanese speaking consumers, a fixed camera button on the lock screen will be beneficial to a larger crowd.

The camera icon is placed just on the right of the slide to unlock tab that will enable users to take photos quickly.

The betas are expected to be out in the coming days which will reveal other features expected in the iOs update.
