Inside Apple's iPhone 2.2.1 Update

Minor fixes and improvements for iPhone

Apple released its iPhone 2.2.1 software update Tuesday. The update includes mainly fixes and minor improvements, and no signs of any noteworthy new features.

The iPhone 2.2.1 update, weighing in at 246MB, is the first firmware release since November's massive Google Street View-bringing and podcast download-enhancing 2.2 offering. Despite boasting the same healthy file size, this update's features are far less far out. The software is said to improve Safari's stability and fix an image issue in which pictures saved from Mail don't display properly in the Camera Roll.

The 2.2.1 update for the iPod touch device also includes a fix for an issue that caused Apple Lossless (ALAC) audio files to skip when played.

Conspicuously absent from the 2.2.1 update is the addition of support for push notifications - something that had once been rumoured to be in the works.
