    I am posting this for those who may be interested.

    According to Looprumors and unnamed "credible" sources, the promised iPhone software update to version 1.1.1 will occur next Tuesday. They also speculate new widgets including chat, social networking, and location based services will be added to the update.

    Here is the link:

    Take with several grains of salt.

    anonymous sources #1

    I don't trust anyone who either doesn't know or doesn't care that the word "data" is plural.

    If they aren't thorough enough to get subject verb agreement correct, maybe they are similarly sloppy with their research and facts.

    Yeah fine, people make typos and errors in useage.

    That's fine for a messageabord or an IM.

    I expect a little more from a place that charges for advertisements and has an air of professional journalism to it.

    That post has been up there for almost 7 hours, no excuse at this point.

    Hopefully AppTapp developers will release their updated software (without which I cannot live) shortly afterward!

    Heh, apparently you make errors too.

    Useage should be spelled usage and the obvious second error just looks like you were typing too fast! :)

    When you start seeing me put advertisements on my posts on here then your editorial criticism might become valid.

    Until then, it's just so much carping.

    Just another thing...doesn't say it will happen on Tuesday. Just "as soon as Tuesday". So wouldn't market it down in with a marker quite yet.

    Sobe, relax, it's a macrumors forum. The point is to discuss macrumors. There is buzz all over that the iphone update will be early next week. Steve Jobs said the update for iphone with wifi itunes store would be out this month. Yet you want to say Looprumors is full of it due to typos or spelling errors? Seems like they are the good money and you are out there bro. :eek:

    Lets hope it includes Yahoo IM (if people still use that), and MSN.
    AIM is too limited, I dont know anyone that uses it!

    That's just impossible. AIM is by far the most widely used IM client. BY FAR.

    When you start criticizing spelling and grammar, it should be because you're actually knowledgeable about it.

    I think macduke just thought it to be a bit ironic that you, an obviously un-proficient user of English grammar, criticize an article for such a futile flaw.

    To summarize: Chill.

    Cheers,
    Alex

    iphone update

    I just bought an iPhone today. I updated to firmware 1.0.2. iTunes said that it will check again for an update on 9/18/07. I thought it seemed odd, that is not a week, or 30 days or some usual type of software update schedule. Then I remembered the Apple event in London next week.

    Mine says the 20th, so obviously it's not pre-set.

    ^

    The timer (not sure how long it sets for) resets every time it checks for an update,

    by hitting the "check for update" button the timer resets.

    I will flip out if they finally release a damn chat client. It's the only thing I can't stand ( besides the crappy camera )

    But oh I've wanted iChat for SO long... please oh please Apple. :(

    ichat is essentially my #1 request for this phone. mobileChat is almost there in terms of a reliable product, but only apple has the tools to really implement it the right way. live updating buddy list, ensure that it's actually connected etc...

    When an update is out, that's when threads should be made.

    All this "credible unnamed" sources is BS.

    Just like when 9 to 5 predicted the iPod nano, they were so wrong...oh wait, they weren't. Its called "macrumors", not "discussions that have been" or something like that.

    Big ol haters in this room. It's macrumors losers, people who are stoked about the next update come here to gossip, guess, whatever. Uh, look at the name of the thread then move on if you don't care to discuss things until they have actually happened. Better yet, after the update come here and Monday morning Quarterback with your 100% accuracy AFTER the release.
