Apple releases iPhone firmware 1.1.1

September 27th, 2007 at 2:11 PM

Yes yes, friends. The day has finally arrived. Apple dropped a new iPhone firmware revision, bringing the official software notation up to version 1.1.1. This new software brings a host of changes and upgrades. Here’s a rundown of some of the more significant changes:

  • iTunes Wi-Fi music store
  • Louder speakerphone and receiver volume
  • Home button double-click functionality
  • Double-tap spacebar to intelligently insert period and space
  • Apple Bluetooth headset battery status now appears in iPhone Status bar
  • Support for TV Out
  • EDGE/GPRS can now be manually turned on and off
  • Adjustable alert volume

Apple elegantly states they have “discovered that some of the unauthorized unlocking programs available on the Internet may cause irreparable damage to the iPhone’s software. If you have modified your iPhone’s software, applying this software update may result in your iPhone becoming permanetly inoperable” For now, if you’ve “modified” your iPhone, we suggest you wait and see what the word is before updating. Although, the new features look oh-so-good! If you do decide to hit the update, let us know what happens!

Thanks, to everyone that sent this in!

UPDATE: I unlocked mine, but still use AT&T, and have installed 3rd party applications — the update was a breeze — didn’t even restore my iPhone before updating!  And…3rd party applications are gone! What are you seeing?

UPDATE 2: Trying to jailbreak with Independance forced me to restore my iPhone…ugh!
