Apple’s shortly fixing that Photo Stream delete function in iOS 5.1

Earlier this month I was delighted to note that Apple is finally fixing the photo stream functionality in iOS 5. The introduction of version 5.1 will enable you to delete photos from the photo stream.

As I commented in my initial post on the matter back in October, Photo stream was a total screw-up. A joyous concept that arrived half-baked. Or, not even that — it was still frozen, waiting for the oven. Being unable to selectively delete photos from your device photo stream made it either unusable or highly frustrating for most right-thinking users.

I commented as such on my post.

Predictably, I received a barrage of shocked Apple people who defended the 5.0 implementation, pointing out that my feelings and instincts were completely wrong.

Suck it.

I’m right. I knew it. Apple either didn’t put the resources into the first version or decided to let the community do the testing and evolution for them.

Either way the next release should fix the primary problems. This is great news.

Technobolt has the full details on what’s coming with 5.1. Here’s the bit about Photo Stream:

Photos taken using iOS 5.1 can be deleted from Photo Stream on your device and will be removed automatically from Photo Stream on your other iOS 5.1 devices. Older photos can be manually deleted from your iOS 5.1 devices.

5.1 is in beta right now and should be with us soon. Bring it on.
