Apple releases iPhone/ iPod Touch update in iTunes


Iphone_ipod_touch_update_20Late yesterday came word that Apple had released version 2.0.1 for the iPhone/ iPod Touch through the iTunes update mechanism.  I plugged in my iPhone 3G and it showed no update but when I pushed the Update button in iTunes it found it right away.  The update took about 20 minutes to download and apply via iTunes and the firmware of the iPhone was updated in short order with no issues.  I have used the iPhone and so far it seems that some tasks that were a little show before the update seem to be happening faster now.  The good news is the iPhone hasn’t had an app crash once since the update which I hope is indicative of the "bug fixes" which is about all that Apple claims this update applies. 



One thing it seems to have fixed is the time between starting the Contacts app and actually using it. It seems to take a little longer to actually display anything but, when it does, you can use it. This being opposed to before where it displayed quickly and then sat there looking all stupid for about 10 seconds.


Don’t kid yourself James, apps still crash even with the update applied. I just think that the phone recovers quicker from the crash then it did before.

Possibly tweaked the memory management which a few tech sites were suggesting was the culprit. Will be updating when I get home tonight.
