iPhone Update Adds More Than Security Fixes
Thursday, August 2nd, 2007 at 7:55 AM - by
Apple's iPhone Update 1.0.1 may have fixed several security related issues, but it didn't stop there. Although Apple didn't officially announce it, the update also includes enhancements to some of the iPhone's built-in applications.
iPhone users posting to Apple's forums noted that the update also added a new BCC option to Mail that sends a copy of your outgoing emails to you.
The Passcode Lock feature now offers several time intervals up to one hour before automatically locking the phone. Previously, users could choose from Immediately and After 1 Minute.
In a separate forum thread, users reported that the update also added the ability to cancel slow or unresponsive VPN connections, and in some cases they feel the volume level has been improved, and that Safari is more stable.
