Battery drain has been a serious, recurring issue with iOS updates, although most devices are usually unaffected. iOS 5.1 is set to include a bunch of upgrades to Siri, expanding its functions. iOS 5.1 should include the ability to take a photo or record video using voice commands, as well as toggling Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on or off. iOS 5.1's release date? TBA.

Apple officially considers Siri to be in a beta state, with some functions unavailable to those outside of the US and currently only supports just a few languages. Siri currently installs on just the iPhone 4S, but it has been hacked to work on older products.
