Apple iPhone 1.1.4 update
Apple today released the much-anticipated 1.1.4 update for the iPhone and iPod touch. The new software/firmware update is available via iTunes; Apple is vague on details but says that the update "includes bug fixes and supersedes all previous versions" of the earlier firmware. A preliminary investigation of the update by MacNN does not reveal any new features, although the upgrade is believed to be necessary for Apple to implement its upcoming software development kit (SDK) for third-party apps and is likely to patch software exploits used to jailbreak or unlock the devices for use with unsanctioned code.
