BGR is reporting that Apple is already preparing a small point release of iOS 4.3 for release within two weeks time, and when it lands, iOS 4.3.1 will not only close the iPad 2’s jailbreak vulnerability, but update the baseband for the iPhone 3GS and first-gen iPad as well.
Here’s the fixes, according to BGR:
Baseband updates for the 3GS and iPad (original)
Fixed memory hang that results in memory corruption when reading large files from USIM filesystem
Fixed problem with NTLM authentication in apps and on websites
Fixed issue with the Springboard and 3rd party apps not recgonizing the gyroscope on the iPad 2
Fixed iPad 2 jailbreak vulneratbility
No word there on fixing the massive battery life drains that users of fourth-generation iPod Touches have been reporting, or a software fix for the yellowing display problems some iPad 2 owners have been experiencing. There’s also no word as to whether or not iOS 4.3.1 will be available for Verizon iPhone customers.
