Yesterday afternoon Apple released another iPhone update. This one, update 2.0.2. At the time of this writing its not exactly clear what the update does, but one hopes that it will help the 3G reception problems that have been bugging so many users. It’s not something that I’ve had a problem with, but I know others who can barely make a call with the 3G turned on. With any luck, this will fix the problem.
Apple also sent out an email to MobileMe customers yesterday evening thanking them for being patient with the MobileMe launch, and extending everyone’s accounts by 60 days (this is in addition to the original 30 day extension). The email even refers to the fact that the launch of MobileMe hasn’t been Apple’s “finest hour” and promises to make it better.
As a MobileMe customer I have to say I appreciate the extension. I’m not sure I would have renewed next month, and now I can give them a little more time to sort everything out.
