Apple releases iPhone 1.02 update

iPhone 1.02 update

Apple on Tuesday released another update to its mobile phone: iPhone 1.02 update. The update is available when users plugin connect their iPhone to the computer and sync with iTunes. Apple says this version contains bug fixes and supersedes all previous versions. The update process takes several minutes while iTunes verifies and uploads the software. The iPhone will automatically restart (and resync) after being updated with the newest software. Reports indicate that third-party hacks -- including iFuntastic -- are still available after the update; however, users with modifications will have to restore store to receive the update.

The update follows the iPhone 1.01 update, which was released in July and brought several fixes and other feature additions.

    1.0.2

    Why do you insist on mis-numbering the updates? 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 (period)

    Restored my iPhone?!

    Argh. It errored during the update and now has to restore it. What the h***. I hadn't tried jailbreak or anything non-standard, but it erased everything. This is c***.

    Not a developer

    Since the person reporting this issue probably isn't a developer they won't recognize the Major.Minor.Bugfix nomenclature.

    Normally something with a change in the third digit designates a bug fix release with no feature changes for those who aren't familiar with it.

    OK Mr Developer

    I guess that's why there were a couple changes in features with 1.0.1, like BCC, security lock delay, etc. Oh wait, that totally goes against what you said.....

    just report uncanged

    guest has a point here. Why don't you read how Apple numbers it? 1.0.2, so easy. No further nomenclature needed. Just copypaste in your news what Apple writes...

    THank god!

    I don't know what I would've done, and what I would've missed without those screen shots. Rather then just being told it includes "bug fixes", and of course not believing it (updates usually state they include "Bugs", right?), we get to read it.

    And this update comes with a EULA! OMG! I never saw that coming!

    And then there are some messages telling you its preparing it, and verifying the software. Wow, I thought it would verify first, then prepare... Maybe they got the screen shots wrong?
