  • iPhone Firmware 2.2.1 Features Exposed to the World !?!


    Apple has not launched a new firmware for quite sometime (not even a small update) since the release of 2.2 version So, we all are excited about the new features coming in the next release but, the leaked feature list doesn't seem to be doing much justice with our aspirations!

    Though none of these new features have been confirmed in anyway, they seem to be enough for a small update. First, this new update will include a number of bug fixes which an end-user would rarely even notice. These fixes include fixing the super slow sync speeds which many users (including me) face daily on a PC. The new features are not really big, but include certain interface changes in the SMS application interface and some new features for the Mail application targeting the Corporate users. Another feature which is said to be under beta is deleting all mails at once rather than selecting each in the Mail application. This new version is speculated to release in the upcoming few weeks.

    Also, there is another rumor that the next major 2.3 update, which has no confirmed release date will include some sort of option for Bluetooth synchronization with iTunes - but I think this is highly unlikely due to Apple's non-seriousness about other bluetooth issues on iPhone.

      Somewhere in Cupertino...

      Steve Jobs, swimming in a pile of money as the DuckTales theme song plays in the back: Oh man, this is the coolest job in the history of the world!

      An iPhone Dev walks in: Morning, Sir. You called?

      Jobs: Yes, what's the status with the new iPhone features?

      Dev: Well quite honestly sir, we haven't wrote a single line of code in months. The iPhone is making you more money than God and has been consistently selling out for almost 2 years with no signs of slowing down. I figure there's no need to add anything since people are buying it anyways.

      Jobs: I suppose you're right. But not a single line of code? Why am I paying you, again?

      Dev: Oh, we approve apps for the App Store now. Since we released the SDK, we can just let people write apps for the phone while we keep making money.

      Jobs: Brilliant.

      SMS updates -

      1. Landscape mode
      2. Fordward sms capability
      3. Ability to change from Qwerty layout to normal predictive text format, like on Blackberry Storm

      These would be great!!

      I know most of these can be covered by 3rd party apps but you have to pay like i did for MySMS

      QUEUE people complaining that the update doesn't offer any new features.

      Firmware is released - people go out of their way to find more stupid bugs with the firmware that the average normal person wouldn't find.

      They complain.

      Apple releases another dump firmware with mainly bug fixes.

      QUEUE people complaining that the update doesn't offer any new features.


      2.2 is a solid base. How about we don't try and find flaws with every firmware? Then Apple has no reason to give us lame updates.

      And personaly, i won't be happy until they integrate an office application natively on the iPhone that can edit/save/email files. If they want to target the corporate market seriously, this should have been on 2.0.

      It is posts and replies like this that get me heated, cause after every firmware is released there are hundreds of lame *** posts from people finding rediculous flaws in new firmwares. Then they turn around and complain about lack of features. Arghhhh

      Totally agree with you on this...I feel that people should just take it as is until the actual update is released...

      Oh well just my two cents..
