Its been eventually one week now since the release of “THE FIX” an update to the Apple inc. new iPhone 2.0 software. The new 2.1 contains a huge list of bug fixes that where reported. Some of the main issues with 2.0+ to this date where several and the list is long. lets go through briefly what fixes where included in the update.

  • Decrease in call set-up failures and dropped calls
  • Significantly better 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 for users with lots of third 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
To go through them one by one from my own 1 week experience.
  • The number of dropped called has increased
  • battery life seems to have become better in the face of apps that include keep alives
  • BACKING UP has become a meager process once again. THANK YOU APPLE
  • not much to say here there have been improvements that are not readaly visable to me.
  • be it g3, wifi, or edge your new great 3rd party apps install like they should in a jiffy
  • improved performance in text messaging ? (does anyone know what they are talking about?)
  • baised on a 2k contact list the search works fine, with the new g3 iPhone performing flawlessly
  • I couldnt say about signal strength.
  • repeat alerts nice, but not a bug fix
  • the wipe option works as intended perfect for the nosy girlfriend that tries to hard? (i dont see the point apple)
  • and a Genius playlist creater to finish this update with somthing glamerous and new.
All in all the update is completely worth it and if your at 2.0 or less i would say go ahead and go for it.
For all you gents that areholding out getting 2.x+ the current winpwn has not been released as of this titme to jailbreak the new firmware on a windows pc. The firmware has been jailbroken on a mac so its only a matter of time for the rest of us.
