iPhone Update Delivers Solutions

[Apple](http://apple.com) shipped their latest (iPhone)[http://apple.com/iphone] software update, version 2.1, with fixes for several customer complaints including poor battery life. I applied the update last night and was rewarded with something I haven’t seen in quite awhile: a nearly full battery in the morning.

The update includes fixes for many other things like email handling, dropped calls, signal strength display and security fixes. One big issue for me was the phone’s responsiveness when searching contacts or switching “states” from home screen to contacts. There always seemed to be a large delay, a long as three seconds, when making the switch from one state to another, before the UI would allow me to interact. This had become a constant frustration and with the new software update, it’s completely disappeared.

I’ll post in a few days about call quality to see if it’s really changed.
