    Just noticed you can now ask your iPhone via Voice Control for the time. Nothing huge but I will use it.

    Phone numbers are also now in red font to tell the difference between a phone number and web link.

    Hey, the 900 number he chooses to do business with is none of your business.

    Auto time zone:

    When you travel to another country / state, the iphone now automatically sets the correct time zone.

    Woo! A feature my Nokia had in 1999….

    It already did this if you allowed it to get its time info from the cell towers.

    Reading the specs it looks like their are now 2 speakers on the bottom vs one speeker and one mike.

    Doesnt sound like much but it could make it a lot louder.

    I hate how quite my ringer is.

    No theres still only one speaker at the bottom and one for the earpiece. There's now one mic at the bottom and one on top for noise cancellation.

    This is for the OS, not for the actual iPhone. And you're wrong. There is one speaker, one microphone and a noise cancellation microphone.


    OP: Is it possible for you to compile all these features into one post?

    edit: Already posted above, sorry.

    Found a bug :)

    There is a new feature where in the iPod you can create your own playlist. This works as expected - however if you hit shuffle and then plug it into an alpine in car deck it plays the first shuffled song and then it goes in order of the playlist (not shuffled).

    you can actually do this from anywhere on the phone. I put a tracking number in notes and long pressed on it and I got the same menu.

    It only set the time, not the time zone. e.g. if you fly to NYC of course it sets your clock to Eastern time, but if you left from CA your calendars etc. are still set to the Pacific time zone. This can cause some alarm when you're looking at things in the calendar and flip out thinking you missed them (or you have 2 more hours than you actually do).

    I've long wondered why they didn't use the location service to set the time zone. If this finding is true, it's now fixed.
