Apple Pushes Out iPhone Firmware 2.2.1

Along with a number of software updates released today, Apple is boosting the iPhone's firmware version by dot-one to 2.2.1. What does the firmware include?

Along with a number of software updates released today, Apple is boosting the iPhone's firmware version by dot-one to 2.2.1. What does the firmware include?Sadly, not a whole heck of a lot. According to Apple's software update, firmware 2.2.1 does the following:

This update contains bug fixes and improvements, including the following: -- Improved general stability of Safari -- Fixed issue where some images saved from Mail do not display correctly in the Camera Roll

Products compatible with this software update: -- iPhone -- iPhone 3G

Really? That's it? No new features? What a bummer.

Honestly, more stability of the Safari browser is a good thing. Mine has been crashing all too often of late. As for the camera bug fix, what about speeding up the camera's general performance? The camera on my iPhone often takes up to 10 seconds to launch before it is ready to shoot an image. That's way too long.

Also, speeding up the responsiveness of the shutter itself would be nice. I've been seeing a delay that's just long enough to mess up my shots.

Ah, well. Here's to looking forward to 2.2.2, or 2.3, or whatever the next update is.

To get the update, plug your iPhone into your computer.
