iPhone OS 3.0 Update Frenzy: Safari 4.0.1, Bluetooth Firmware Update 2.0 and iTunes

Alongside the release of the iPhone OS 3.0, which comes with a long list of new features as well as enhanced security, Apple also rolled out updates for some other software applications. I am talking about Safari 4.0.1, an update that addresses a few compatibility issues, Bluetooth Firmware Update 2.0, which comes with some bug fixes and enhanced compatibility, and last but not least iTunes, which now comes with new terms and conditions and warns you when you attempt to download objectionable content.

Safari 4.0.1

Safari 4.0.1 has been rolled out by Apple via Software Update, meaning that if you have Safari 4 installed on your machine, you should have no problem getting it – alternatively you might want to check out the Safari 4.0.1 download link below. The updated version of the Apple developed browser comes with Safari and iPhoto 09 compatibility fixes and nothing else.

If you would like to get Safari 4.0.1, a download location is available here.

Bluetooth Firmware Update 2.0

Version 2.0 of the Bluetooth Firmware Update is applicable only to some hardware configurations, so if you are not prompted to update (via Software Update), then it means you don’t need it. But if you do need it, you will be faced with the following message: “This update provides bug fixes and better compatibility with the Apple Wireless Mighty Mouse and Apple Wireless Keyboard. It installs on all Macintosh systems with Bluetooth based on the Broadcom chipset.” After you install the update you will have to reboot.

If you would like to get the Bluetooth Firmware Update 2.0, a download location is available here.

iTunes

Apple’s iTunes Store comes with new terms and conditions, as you will surely notice the next time you want to update an app, make a new purchase, or simply see what new apps are available for download. The most notable changes we could spot in the new terms and conditions are:
- InApp purchased items may not transfer from one device to another.
- Responsibility for InApp purchases is held by the app provider only.

Apple can finally drop the “we won’t allow this app because it contains objectionable content” rule now that the iPhone OS 3.0 with parental controls is out. This is because the iTunes App Store now comes with download warnings, something like “IMPORTANT: This product contains material that may be objectionable to children under 17.” App are rated according to their content, and whenever someone wants to get an app that has been rated as 17+ for example, that user is served a warning so that he is aware of the objectionable content he might come in contact with.

Note that objectionable content covers a lot of ground, ranging from foul language to adult content and so on.
Also note that the App Store employs a 4-tier rating system: 4+, 9+, 12+, and 17+
