iPhone OS 2.2 is Here, Just as Rumored
Article by George Norman
On 21 Nov 2008
Last week, there was a rumor on the Internet that that Apple will update its iPhone OS firmware to version 2.2. As it turns out the rumors were true and Apple has released v. 2.2 of the iPhone OS, as well as iPod touch OS 2.2 and iTunes 8.0.2. To be completely honest, the rumors were a bit off because they said the update will come on the 21st, but Apple beat them to the punch by releasing it on the night of the 20th.

Why did I mention the latest 8.0.2 version of iTunes? If you want to get the updated iPhone and iPod touch firmware you must do so through iTunes – the operating system of the devices will not update itself unless you use iTunes 8.0.2. It must also be noted that you will be charged a fee if you want to update your iPod touch OS version 2.0 or lower.


There are two main enhancement categories: maps and mail. In the maps category you will notice the enhancements to Google Street View, walking and public transit directions, dropped pins address display, and email shared locations. In the mail category you will notice enhancements to programmed mail fetching and HTML formatting. Other enhancements refer to Safari stability and performance, the audio quality of visual voicemail messages, auto-correction feature can be turned on or off, the Home button will take you to the initial Home screen, and last but not least, enhancements have been made to podcast download availability, meaning that you can use iTunes to download podcasts.

The thing that should please you the most is the fact that Apple says the iPhone, thanks to the new 2.2 OS, features a “decrease in call set-up failures and call drops”.
