I guess I'll get this started. What has been updated that hasn't been mention in the keynote or in the January '08 update video located here (http://www.apple.com/iphone/gettingstarted/guidedtourupdate2/).

So far I noticed that now when you get an SMS message and hit "close" it will actually ignore the message and you won't see a little "1" next to it.

have you tried resyncing all music to it? disable the music sync section, sync, then enable it and sync. Maybe the lyrics get dropped normally, or they get indexed in some special way with the new version. Also may have to get the new version of itunes first.

For me in the same location, Maps has been precisely on at times and a couple miles off at other times. I guess it really depends on the coverage around you. My guess is it would probably work pretty nicely in a big city.

Props to Apple though, I like the Maps update and at least they tried to give us some sort of GPS.

Two new "features": If you get a new text while the phone is unlocked, the screen turns on and it says "Slide to (View or Read?)" I forgot exactly what it said, sorry. When you have headphones plugged in, and use the side volume buttons, it says "headphones" above the megaphone icon and 16 bars for volume.

the option to manually manage songs and videos is now in the summary screen!!! you can play play songs in itunes straight from the iphone. no more auto syncing to a playlist just drag and drop!

I tried manually managing my music and videos with the iPhone after the recent update and I must say it's extremely slow. So slow that I'd rather just go through the pain of syncing the playlists and call it a day. For example the Lost: Season 4 Trailor from iTunes that is less than 2 minutes long took about 30 mins to sync to my iPhone. Another example is a 12 song album took just as long if not longer to sync from iTunes to the iPhone. And in the process iTunes hangs and you can't do anything else on within the app.

Did anyone else experience this or is it just me? Any explanations out there?

I have a 20' Intel based iMac so I know it should have nothing to do with my Mac.

Multi-touch keyboard?

Multitouch Keyboard means you can hold shift with one finger and press a letter with another finger to capitalize it.

WOO! Manually managing music! Actually it's just iTunes 7.6 that's needed, and my lossless to aac script I downloaded forever ago works again!

Hold shift and type letters -- appear as capitals.

Press 123 key to type numbers, then hold the +- thingy key and press some other functions then let go... you're back to the number area.

Do you mean when the phone ISN'T unlocked? ie. Screen off, text comes and the screen comes on displaying the text? If so, it's always said "Slide to View".

Is anyone else having either of these two email glitches:

1. Even after reading a message in the mail app (the blue dot next to the email is gone), the front screen still displays the full number of unread emails on the mail icon. A restart is required to correct this.

2. E-mails coming in with nothing in the body and a "This message is only partially downloaded. Download remaining XX.X KB" message at the bottom of the empty message. Note that this number is always very low (7 KB, 11.1 KB, etc.)

Also, the volume change image rotates with you when the screen is turned. Not sute if this is new, but I have only noticed it happening since the update.

Not having your email problems, but the volume image has always rotated when relevant (although, like a pop-up text, it doesn't rotate at the same rate a Safari page does in the background, if you're in Safari, which is ever-so-slightly annoying :)

No it's not a bug - i much prefer this form of functionality.
it should be an option in the preferences though - that's where the bug lies, in that you can't choose between the two different methods.

Fully agreed. I much prefer this way too, because 95% of the time I have to go back in just to get rid of the message, which often takes (too) many steps!

By the way, has anyone else noticed that when you create and send an SMS, when it goes into its green bubble, it's not quite centred (it's slightly too low), then when you go out of SMS and back in again, its magically centred itself? Strange :)

Thanks for the suggestion. Triedd that and it didn't solve me problem. I went through Apple's discussion boards and I was suprised to see that USB issues is a widely complained about problem in regards to iMacs.

Once I get home from work the next step with to do a hard reset of NVRAM or PRAM and see if that solves the problem. Hopefully it does cause one thing I hate the most is having to take my system back to the Apple Store.

FYI - I have not seen this posted about the Lyrics, if you have them they can only be viewed in the vertical mode note horizontal. May sound silly but for about twenty minutes I could not figure out why I could not see the lyrics. I tried over and over to tap the screen and it went to the song list. They realized holding it vertically there they are. DAH.. as you can tell I have never owned an ipod :rolleyes::o:o Just thought I would through it out there.

You could always hit the shift and slide over to the letter you wanted cap and release, same with #'s/symbols (which would then auto revert back to the abc screen). Not sure how much faster the two thumb/finger method might be but the shift-slide-release always worked well for me.


Lyrics - I wanted to see this in action but noticed that I don't think I have any. It doesn't seem that any iTunes purchased songs include them. I used getinfo on my iTunes for purchased songs and checked the lyrics tab, not there. And obviously I don't expect them for my ripped CDs unless somehow that info is coming in from the Gracenote CDDB Database.

Is there a function in iTunes now like get artwork for lyrics to pull them from the iTunes store, or a dashboard widget or other 3rd party script that does this. I would be worried that iTunes might grab the wrong lyrics as I have seen it grab the wrong artwork. With approx. 8000 songs that is a lot of lyrics to import one way or another. Hardly seems worth it.

If you don't t won't. Again make sure when you sync and the play the albumn on the phone you are holding in the vertical position not horizontal as that will not work. They should be there.

I did the iTunes/iPhone update in Winnemucca, Nv on the truck stop WiFi. There is no EDGE in Winnemucca.

The first thing I tested, and have been testing since, is the locate me feature. Obviously you need some ford of data connection for this to work. Here are my results so far:

In Winnemucca it put me at the hotel next to the Flying J, I was at the Flying J.

US-95 north from Winnemucca through Oregon to the US-95/ID-55 junction I got EDGE most of the way but it put my location at Jordan Valley, Or the whole way.

From the US-95/ID-55 JCT I too I-84 to I-80. It was within a hundred yards or so the whole way with a few EDGE drop outs along the way.

It is a pretty well known fact that Wyoming sucks as far as data connections go. I got a connection in Rawling and the location was within a few feet. No more EDGE from there to Denver. It has been about 1/4 mile off each time I've tried it in Denver.

I'll do more testing over the next few weeks.

I'm still frustrated that we can now rearrange the "youtube" and "calculator" icons, add web links to the home screen, view song lyrics, but still can't put the contacts button on the home screen. Anyone find a way to do this yet? It's the most frustrating part of the iPhone's interface.

If I want someone's address I have to:
1) Wakeup/unlock the phone
2) press phone
3) press contacts
4) press "back" from who ever I viewed recently
5) find the contacts

There has got to be an easier way.... how about a button on the home screen that always took you to the alphabetized list of contacts?

Manually managing songs is NOT a feature of the 1.1.3 iPhone firmware but actually a feature of the new iTunes 7.6 software.

I'm running a hacked 1.1.2 iPhone and as soon as I updated to iTunes 4.7 the option for manually managing my music on the phone was there.

My God, that sounds horrible. ;) If you set the double clicking of the home button to your favorites, you can eliminate steps for certain people.

I tried the bluetooth fix and it worked. Hopefully it will continue to work or Apple will release a fix because restoring all the time will suck.

Another example is a 12 song album took just as long if not longer to sync from iTunes to the iPhone. And in the process iTunes hangs and you can't do anything else on within the app.

Did anyone else experience this or is it just me? Any explanations out there?

I have a 20' Intel based iMac so I know it should have nothing to do with my Mac.

Manually managing is a feature new to iTunes 7.6, not the 1.1.3 firmware. I haven't updated from 1.1.2 yet, but have the option working after updating to the newest iTunes. I find that it actually seems to transfer large files faster... may just be my imagination though.

how about the fact that when you reply to a text, your reply appears above the message in the conversation bubbles? ANNOYING!

I don't know if this has been posted but now when you have headphones plugged in, it will say "headphone" where it said "ringer".

There are a couple little quirks like that too.

I've noticed that Mobile Safari will now load pages in background "tabs" while you are viewing a page in your current "tab".

In previous versions of the firmware it seemed that Safari would only load data in your current "tab," (and background "tabs" were put on hold and didn't continue loading until you switched to them). But I noticed just this morning that I could load several different tabs simultaneously (which is great if you're surfing on EDGE to multiple sites, as you can load stuff in the background while you're reading content on another "tab").

Not sure if this was the case for 1.1.2, but I don't think it was.

Over this upcoming weekend use caution when inviting friends to your MLK BBQ because the iPhone will correct your spelling of MLK and you will inadvertently invite your friends to a KKK BBQ!
My iPhone is not trying to correct "mlk" although it did suggest "BBQ" for bbq.

Same - although now I'm back in london it gets me towithin a couple of hundred meters or better (maybe the WiFi thing? - it got the same accuracy on my Dad's Touch). Was on the train the ohter day and tried it a few times - worked every time (to a few miles) even in the countryside.

Another goodie I just noticed - not sure if this is a firmware 1.1.3 thing or an iTunes 7.6 thing (though I would lean towards it being iTunes)...

You can now sync photos from subscribed albums in iPhoto with your iPhone. You used to only be able to sync albums that are local on your Mac. Nifty!

A great usage I've found for this is subscribing to my Flickr feed in iPhoto - now I can have my recent Flickr images (or anyone else's for that matter) on my iPhone.

iPods have not been firewire compatible since the video ipod I believe.

any ipod will CHARGE via firewire, but you will not be able to transfer data on modern ipods
be VERY careful charging your iphone with firewire

but to stay on topic... the screen now rotates 360 degrees with the accelerometer. before it wouldn't allow the screen to turn entirely upside down

i have a 1.1.3 jailbroken iphone that i upgraded from 1.1.2 otb

i found out that when you use nate's upgrade, it doesnt upgrade the bootloader, it only upgrades the firmware, that is why the google maps locator doesnt work, try to use locateme or navizon they work prety well locateme works better, but you have to add a source

so if you want locator to work, you will have to give up the jailbreak

the choice is yours, if you didnt use the jailbreak, then you might not be in your providers network, you could be using a 3rd party tower that is registered with your provider

good luck

I wonder when they will add MMS functionality. I send and receive picture messages all the time. I occasionally send and receive video messages as well. For a phone that is all about media, no MMS support really undermines that.:rolleyes:

I'd like for SMS to go into some type of holding pattern and be automatically sent when there is signal. Sometimes I don't reply to my messages right away and when I do, there's no signal. I still have to go back and try to resend the message. Most of the time, I forget to go back and resend the message when I get to some place with signal. It's a basic feature for SMS to go into the outbox until it is sent. At least my L7 had it. I hope Apple fixes this. Maybe make the bubble a different color - red maybe and then have it turn green after it has been sent.

Yeah, this is also really important for emergency situations. Since 9/11 when people had trouble making calls from their cell because of the towers being overloaded, I've read a couple of articles that have advised people to send a text message instead, because most phones put the text on "hold" until the next available signal. Also better because texts put less of a strain on the network, leaving the cell towers more available for emergency responders. Definitely something Apple needs to implement!

Also would be nice for when I'm on the Metro and don't have a signal... :D

for real? my 1.1.1 and 1.1.2 phone will go normal, widescreen left, widescreen right but not completely upside down. i know everyone at the apple store in cambridge had the same thing until 1.1.3

This definitely needs implementing - I've had far more than my fair share of phones and this is the first one in at least three or four years which hasn't provided this functionality.

Plus, what's with the (still) crippled Bluetooth, Apple? I mean, I don't want every single profile, but no way to send files to other devices? Come on!

We need to be able to edit/add the contact list while on a phone call. Apple has that feature locked out for some reason. I've also needed to add contact info or give somebody a recent or missed phone number and I can't even do it while I'm on a phone call. I hope it's something they can easily add and I'm surprised that they haven't!! I did send Apple feedback concerning the issue.

the problem is that there is no bluetooth... really except when talking on the phone. What about playing music through it, sending/recieving media through bluetooth. Is this version of bluetooth/or is the iPhone capable of doing this by a firmware/software update?
