Size is in the eye of the beholder. A 0.0.1 upgrade from 2.2 to 2.2.1 sounds minor, but size-of-download-wise? Whew. On Tuesday Apple released a minor update to the iPhone / iPod Touch Software, 2.2.1. The typically vague release notes say:
iPhone 2.2.1 Software UpdateDespite the small list, the update is just as big as the 2.2 update, at 246.4MB. We have already installed it, without issue. Took about 20 minutes, and seems to be fine, though as usual, there's nothing like being an earlier adopter for additional risk.
This update contains bug fixes and improvements, including the following:
Products compatible with this software update:
- Improved general stability of Safari
- Fixed issue where some images saved from Mail do not display correctly in the Camera Roll
- Fixed issue that caused some Apple Lossless (ALAC) audio files to skip during during playback (iPod Touch only)
- iPhone 3G
