The big 2.2 iPhone update finally arrived and it’s ready to be abused. The update itself is the biggest one so far, weighting 246 Megs ( compared to 238 Mb for the 1.1 iPhone update ). I’m guessing if you own an iPhone you already are aware of the changes brought by the 2.2 update, as we’ve also written in the Beta preview.
Here are some important features of this iPhone update:
- Google StreeT View option in Google Maps
- The Public Transit directions feature
- Location sharing
- Safari improved perfomance and stability
- A number of fixes, including some call drops/failures fixes
- The possibility of returning to the iPhone home screen by oneclicking the home button (finally!)
- Auto-Correction on/off toggle
Apple also promises a better voicemail sound quality but that remains to be seen. Also, podcasts can now be downloaded directly on the iPhone via 3G or wireless connection.
