iPhone 2.1 now available

Table of Contents

As promised on Tuesday, iPhone update 2.1 is now available in iTunes. Its features include:

– Decrease in call set-up failures and dropped calls
– Significantly better battery life for most users
– Dramatically reduced time to backup to iTunes
– Improved email reliability, notably fetching email from POP and Exchange accounts
– Faster installation of 3rd party applications
– Fixed bugs causing hangs and crashes for users with lots of third party applications
– Improved performance in text messaging
– Faster loading and searching of contacts
– Improved accuracy of the 3G signal strength display
– Repeat alert up to two additional times for incoming text messages
– Option to wipe data after ten failed passcode attempts
– Genius playlist creation

I’m pretty excited for the “significantly” longer battery life (assuming it is, in fact, significant), as well as the faster installation of apps and the repeat alert for incoming texts (though I wish they’d add the same feature for missed calls). And after playing the the Genius feature in iTunes, I think it’s something that’ll I’ll get some use out of natively on the iPhone.

As always, simply connect your iPhone to iTunes and hit “Check for Updates”.
