iPhone, iPod Touch Get a Small Software Update

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 Update

This update contains bug fixes and improvements, including the following:
  • 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)
Products compatible with this software update:
  • iPhone
  • iPhone 3G
Despite 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.
