View Full Version : iPhone 2.1 released today

09-12-2008, 12:19 PM

The latest iPhone version 2.1 was released today. You need to be running iTunes 8 in order to get it. It supposedly solves a lot of bug fixes, most importantly the 3G issues for owners of the 3G iPhone. It also includes the "Genius Playlist" feature, which I find very interesting in iTunes 8!

Bug fixes and improvements
decrease in call set-up failures and call drops
significantly improved battery life for most users
dramatically reduced time to backup to iTunes
improved email reliability, notably fetching email from POP and Exchange accounts
faster installation of 3rd party applications
fixed bugs causing hangs and crashes if you have lots of 3rd party applications
improved performance in text messaging
faster loading and searching of contacts
improved accuracy of the 3G signal strength display
repeat alert up to two additional times for incoming text messages
option to wipe data after ten failed passcode attempts
Genius playlist creation

As usual, if you are jailbroken and/or unlocked DO NOT UPGRADE until the Dev Team has released their solution. Recently, it has only been a matter of hours for that to happen with each new release! :cool:
