BCC, Passcode updates

Apple's recent iPhone Update 1.0.1 includes several new enhancements not documented by its own release notes -- which indicate only security fixes. For instance, there is now a BCC option in the iPhone's mail settings to send yourself a copy of outgoing mail, whereas before there was only a CC option. In addition, the Passcode Lock functionality now offers up to one hour to request the password when usage is idle, where before it the only options were immediately or one minute. Several users have also reported stability enhancements with this release, as well as alleviation of an issue where the the iPhone's battery appeared to not charge fully.

    I just tested the passcode feature, setting it for one hour. It asked me for my passcode after 5 minutes. O well. :)

    Installation was very easy on an overburdened single Proc G5. Took all of four and half minutes.

    The pass code time thing was one of my initial main groans. I submitted a feedback request to have more times added, so this is a really happy surprise for me!

    iPod hasn't crashed yet while I use other apps either, so that's nice. And so far it seems like the album art displayed while playing has been fixed.
