The Cupertino-based company has recently updated the operating system used by the iPhone and iPod touch. This is to say Apple has just released iPhone OS 3.1.3 and iPhone OS 3.1.3 for iPod touch. But before you plug in your iPhone (or iPod Touch), fire up iTunes and download the update, perhaps you would like to know what the update has to offer. As a little side note, iTunes has recently been updated as well – to version 9.0.2.

The brief description of iPhone OS 3.1.3 would go something like this: it fixes bugs, it plugs security holes, it makes the operating system better. And now for the not so short description of what the iPhone OS 3.1.3 update brings to the table.

The first thing the update fixes is the “accuracy of reported battery level on iPhone 3GS”. You can expect your iPhone 3GS to more correctly display how much battery you’ve got left. You can also expect your iPhone to launch those 3rd party apps that refused to launch in the past. It appears this was an issue for some users, an issue that has been solved now. Speaking of apps, the iPhone OS 3.1.3 update also fixes a bug that caused apps to crash when using the Japanese Kana keyboard. Last but not least, the update fixes a bunch of security vulnerabilities – more on this topic here.

Alongside the iPhone OS 3.1.3, Apple also released the iPhone SDK 3.1.3. “With this software you can develop applications that run on iPhone and iPod touch. Includes the Xcode IDE, Instruments, iPhone simulator, frameworks and samples, compilers, Shark analysis tool, and more. With over 1,000 new APIs, iPhone SDK provides developers with a range of new possibilities to enhance the functionality of their applications. New APIs also provide support for applications to communicate with hardware accessories attached to iPhone or iPod touch,” says the Cupertino-based company.
