iPhone v1.1.2 update

Ahead of the iPhone launches in the UK and Germany (and as expected), Apple today posted iPhone v1.1.2 [160MB], the latest update to the software for the iPhone. Although some parts of Germany have already experienced the launch, the company has posted its new software its servers, but not yet provided the release notes or the update via iTunes. Specifically, reports indicate that the update is expected to bring wider language support with international keyboards and special character keys, and access to The Cloud Wi-Fi hotspots for UK users. Other reports indicate that it will patch the TIFF exploit that hackers have used to "jailbreak" v1.1.1 iPhones, requiring hackers to find another way to gain access to the iPhone system and install third-party apps. The corresponding iPod touch v1.1.2 update is also available, altough the details of the changes are not noted.

Some notes:

- brings support for Language, Keyboards, Asian Font, and Region Format (see below)
- turning on multiple keyboards places globe key on the left of the space bar to allow users to cycle through various keyboards (see below)
- no search functionality in mail (yet)
- no direct support for Google IMAP accounts (still have to bypass the Gmail setup)
- no support for sending SMS to multiple recipients
- using AppSnap for "jailbreak" no longer works
-- Apple's own documentation (decompress via StuffIt Expander) has no details, just pointing users to the iPhone site, security update site, etc.
- users report the 'Add Event' function was added to to the iPod touch calendar application.
- the update also shows the iPod battery charge level/status from within iTunes (see below)

    What is it with Apple

    and labelling US English as English? It's hardly a fitting label, given the fairly obvious origins of the language :/

    Differences

    English (US) has more corrections built in. And more cuss words.

    Update

    I downloaded the huge update file... Now what do I do to install it on my phone? The "Check for Updates" still says that 1.1.1 is the latest.

    what is region formats

    What is the different region formats and what does that setting do really? Didnt quite get it... Since you have a different option for keyboards, and language, region formats must do something else right? =/

    Formats

    Region formats probably cover currency symbols, default date and time formats, that sort of thing.

    Download site unofficial

    Why is the link to 1.1.2 not an official Apple download site.

    I checked for iPhone updates in iTunes and it says my iPhone is up-to-date at version 1.1.1.

    I wouldn't install alleged Apple software from a non-Apple web site. I don't think it's wise for anyone to do it.

    Re: agreed

    Plus, the file name has a nice 'b' at the end of the version number, implying its a beta. Plus, its coming from edgesuite.com, whatever that is.

    Maybe this is the first iPhone trojan!
