Apple releases update to iPhone 2.0 software

The new software supposedly comes with various "bug fixes," although it's not clear right now exactly what bugs Apple chose to tackle with the new software.

Apple has released the first update to the iPhone 2.0 software, with promises of "bug fixes."

iPhone owners were prompted Monday afternoon that the update was available, the first update for iPhone owners since the iPhone 2.0 software went live three weeks ago. AppleInsider appeared to be the first to spot the update, or at least the first with a well-known publishing brand to spot it, and reported that the release notes call out "bug fixes," but nothing specific.

Please let me know, either here in the comments or through e-mail, if you have any problems with the update or if it fixes any outstanding issues you've been having with your iPhone. iPhone 3G owners have been complaining about poor reception and battery life, and original iPhone owners have noticed a more crash-prone iPhone with the 2.0 software installed.
