iPhone 2.2 adds podcasts

The upcoming iPhone OS 2.2 update is expected to offer quite a few new goodies, with the latest rumor being direct podcast downloading, revealed by The Unofficial Apple Weblog The rumor indicates that users will be able to subscribe to and download podcasts from the iTunes Music Store, albeit with a currently non-functional "Get More Episodes..." button in the current build. Apple recently ejected the Podcaster application, this feature being the likely reason for the move.

Developers privy to the beta have shared screenshots indicating the new operating system version will bring with it application ratings upon removal of the software from the iPhone.

Mass transit directions are also expected, including directions to bus stops, schedules, and routing information.

    Will the phone part work? Our connections suck in Phoenix and Los Angeles.

    on deletion?

    How is this helpful? Wouldn't the people deleting it be more likely the ones who didn't like it? So aren't the ratings actually going to basically all be bad?

    iPod touch

    And not owning a touch, I'm curious how these updates are handled on there. Do they come now free of charge? Or do the touch owners keep having to pay to get new features? I don't recall hearing Apple changing the touch to the subscription model of accounting.
