Apple releases iPhone, iPod touch 1.1.1 [updated]

iPhone 1.1.1 update

After warning users earlier this week about possible issues with unlocked iPhones, Apple on Thursday released iPhone 1.1.1 update. The update, which is 152.3MB in size and available via iTunes, adds new features, includes bug fixes, and supersedes all previous versions, according to Apple's release notes. Apple offers this warning in it's dialogue: "If you have modified your phone's software, applying this update may result in your iPhone becoming permanently inoperable. "Earlier this week, the company confirmed that it was not intentionally disabling unlocked phones, while readers provided methods for re-locking an iPhone to avoid rendering the iPhone inoperable. As expected the update does bring access to the iTunes WiFi Store as well as louder maximum speaker volumes, but breaks many of the third-party hacks. [updated]

The iPhone update, which includes a number of security fixes, also brings support for video-out to a television set or monitor and new Home Button functionality. Other enhancements include an updated Calculator icon, a developer debug mode in Safari, the ability to turn on/off EDGE services (useful when roaming), the ability to view Mail attachments in landscape mode, and. rearranged YouTube access navigation links and manual arrangement of stock quotes and weather updates for each city.

Users can also change 'General Settings' to allow changing options for the Home Button (to either 'Home', 'Phone Favorites', and 'iPod' screens).

Apple has also added a Keyboard option that enables a ". " shortcut: double-tapping the space bar during entry of an e-mail or text message will insert a period and a space (instead of a space-only), avoiding switching the keyboard layout to find the "." punctuation.

Apple has added new text message sound effects to the 'Sounds' setting, including Tri-tone, Chime, Glass, Horn, Bell, and Electronic.

The iPod Settings now contains three sets of options: Music, Video, and TV Out. Video options allow users to choose the starting point for playback: either "From beginning" or "Where Left Off."

Video options lets users start playing where you left off, or at the beginning of the video, as you prefer. You can also turn closed captioning on or off. Users can also turn on/off close captioning, while "TV Out" offers widescreen (on/off) and TV signal (NTSC/PAL) options.

Update: Apple also updated the iPod touch software to v1.1.1, which it says contains "bug fixes." The 150MB update is also only available via iTunes.

    Really...

    There are no comments and no threads in the forums? I was thinking it literally came out seconds ago. Installing now.

    At first glance

    Added online iTunes store, the double-click "Home" button, reorder stocks and weather lists, text-message tones, some video options to iPod setup, and TV-out abilities. And dramatically improved the speaker volume.

    Trashed my iPhone

    Just tried the update and it trashed my iPhone, I can't restore it either. It's a stock iPhone, no hacks or mods. I'm on hold with iPhone customer support. We've tried several things to restore, no luck so far. Now I'm getting escalated to the technicians....

    searchable contacts?

    That's all I really want- just be able to search my contacts? Is that too hard? Sherlock, Spotlight- but nothing for the iPhone? Steve must only have 10 friends.
