iPod classic 2.0.1 update

Mirroring a similar update for the fourth-generation Nano, Apple has issued a v2.0.1 firmware update for the 120GB iPod classic. The change list is in fact similar to that for the Nano, primarily introducing support for Apple's in-ear headphones equipped with a mic and remote. Also corrected is a bug in saving Genius playlists, and an unspecified number of minor problems. The update is presently available only through iTunes, and is incompatible with 80 or 160GB Classics.

    No love for 1G classic

    Those of us with the first iteration of the iPod classic (80GB or 160GB) are still left at 1.1.2, without Genius or earphone mic/clicker support.

    Welcome to the club

    It's not unusual for Apple to abandon their older iPods with regard to firmware updates. My 3rd generation iPod never got true podcast support, just a kludge using a playlist. It also never got gapless playback.

    iPhone support for in-ear

    Does anyone know if the iPhone works with the Apple in-ear headphones, specifically if the volume controls work? The iPhone already supports click, double-click, and triple-click controls on the regular earbuds, but I haven't heard anything about volume control support.
