    Apple released iPhone Update 1.0.1 yesterday. Here is a list of updates/fixes that appear to have been included after scouring the forums.


    - It forces a full restore prior to update if you have a customized/hacked iPhone, so make sure to save your Camera Roll which will not automatically get synced prior to restore.

    Not Fixed / Other

    - Safari is still crashing for some users.
    - Missing option for WEP or ASCII password (image) for Wifi password. The iPhone must be able to determine this automatically.
    - The checkered screen pattern was not affected by this update.


    - VPN appears to work more reliably.
    - Not fully charging battery indicator appears to be fixed.
    - Passcode lock now offers time-out options up to 1 hour.
    - You can automatically BCC yourself in Settings -> Mail
    - Settings -> Phone -> Call Forwarding remembers the last phone number you entered.
    - Some people claim that the speaker is subjectively louder.

    Apple also posted an updated User Guide (PDF).

    well, seeing as how i have 5 ringtones and a library of music on an external hdd i don't really see the need to upgrade to 1.0.1. They could've at least released some new apps or something with this update :confused:

    Don't worry, an actual enhancement update will come soon. This update was mainly to address some specific security issues.

    Hex passwords still work. Just type it in as you normally do. It just figures it out whether it's a WEP password or HEX key.

    I'm convinced that BT and WiFi connectivity is more consistent.

    I'm delighted to report that my screen seems to be smudging less. Couldn't be happier.

    One other thing I noticed is the before the update, while scrolling with my finger up and down through any menu, my finger would end up not where I first put it on the screen. Now, it does.

    Now both my speakers on the bottom work, although one is still louder than the other, might just be that one song...

    I think edge is crashing more, it keeps telling me that it can't activate EDGE, presistently, and then while the dialog box is up telling me that, the data loads underneath it, and it seems to be running more slowly overall. A quantitative test shows I'm getting data rates as fast as 195 kbps to as slow as 89 kbps from packet to packet.

    My VPN now remembers my password like I like for it to!

    Edit: I'm not sure what my ears are telling me anymore. After installing the update I was 100% sure there were two speakers working, but now I'm not so sure... I had previously been so acutely aware that there was only one speaker, I felt sure I was hearing two, but now I think maybe there is just one... I don't know.

    You know I thought this must be craziness talking... but you are right. Before if I covered up the left speaker, I couldn't hear anything. Now I can hear something. Note, the right "speaker" is actually just the mic, so they must have made it louder or something.

    There is only one speaker, the other side is the mic, and some sound bleeds across.

    Yea i swear i read some where that there was only one speaker on the bottom of our phones... But i might just be imagining it... Anyone notice if their spell correction feature works more consistently after the update? I was going to say i did, but while typing this post it did not help me again. I really hope this is fixed soon!

    I have to disagree with the reports of the volume being corrected. I think it's even quieter than before! I tried calling people with a variety of cell providers and landlines after the update, and had to be in a quiet room to hear anyone clearly, even with the volume turned all the way up. Before the update, I could hear most people moderately well, even while out shopping, etc.

    I'm curious to hear other people's experiences...

    Exchange and their nested folders work now.
    Also, I was begining to think the internal speaker sucked, and my FM-modulator sucked, then I realized it's the quality of most of my mp3s that sucks.

    Head set play pause

    One thing that I have noticed is that the play-pause from the clicker on the headphones now works better. Before the update if I was listening with the headphones and I clicked the pause button on headphones it would pause. But if I waited to long to click it again to continue playing the songs it wouldn't work and I would actually have to take the iPhone out of my pocket and click play on the screen.

    This was very annoying but they have fixed it now. Now I can't wait for some real feature updates.

    There was some kind of setting for this before the update.
    Was the option changed in some way, or is its inclusion on this list a mistake?

    Belkin Auto Kit for iPod

    I just tried this in my car. And now the Belkin Auto Kit for iPod works with the iPhone. Before the update the Belkin Auto Kit for iPod would only charge the iPhone and no sound would come out when playing in ipod mode.

    Now you still get the message that says "This device is not designed to work with iPhone. Would you like to switch to Airplane mode." Just click No and and go to ipod mode play some music and it will output the sound through the dock connector just like the ipod.

    Ahhh now I can listen to my iPhone in the car just like I used to with my iPod. :D

    The difference is now you can BCC instead of just CC.

    Freakin' sweet. I was just about to pull mine apart and cut the wire as well. ;)

    The "Take Picture" button in Camera.app now respects orientation. I don't recall that before this update.
