[Bump: Extra info at end of post]

Plug your iPhone into the dock and bring up iTunes. It will download and install firmware v1.0.1. But don’t get all excited. This is not a ‘major’ update but seems to only be minor bug fixes. There was a major security problem found in Safari about a week ago, this seems to mainly be a fix for that problem. Although, here are some notes from people who have done the update:

  • “Option to BCC yourself, mail is much faster. Messages load instantly. Yahoo push mail is swift.”
  • “I’ve seen improvements in mail, updated options in MMS, and youtube reflects youtube.com (evolution of dance isn’t always the top of every day!)”
  • “Usage” in settings was moved from the middle to the top”
  • “Wow, I can’t get this thing to crash! running iPod, google maps, mail, and safari runs great- no crashing- the way it should be!”
  • “Email also handles Exchange IMAP better. I used to only get folders that were children of the Inbox, while Exchange folders like Sent and Drafts or Public Folders only showed up on my computer. This has apparently been fixed.”

Update: Not much more, but here are some more specific details.

One of the fixes is said to address unusually low call volumes, which in some cases rendered normal calls and the speaker phone difficult to hear in typical environments, no matter how high the volume setting. A publicly recognized battery error which refused to acknowledge a fully-charged iPhone has also been resolved for a number of users, some reports claim.

Additional readers noted that Safari was no longer as crash-prone as it had been in the past. The web browser is particularly more stable when running with multiple open pages or with music playing in the background, they said.

A few minor feature changes have also been worked into the update. IMAP e-mail accounts now properly display more sub-folders, according to some users. The mail client can now also send blind carbon copies of messages to the sender to keep track of messages. Previously, these recipients required a public carbon copy.

Other fixes include an expanded number of time limits for engaging the passcode lock, which can be set as late as an hour for those less concerned about security, and an enhanced VPN client with a cancel button that backs out of failed or slow connections.
