iPhone 2.2 firmware released – brings Google Street View, Safari improvements and more

We were kind of expecting the iPhone OS 2.2 update to be released today, November 21, and it was, indeed.

Apple now proudly presents, on its official website, all the improvements and additions that the 2.2 firmware brings to the hugely popular iPhone.

Among them, unfortunately, you won’t find MMS and copy/paste capabilities.

But there’s Google Street View, which will allow iPhone users to see street-level images of any place they’ve located in Maps. The update also comes with Public Transit and Walking Directions which, obviously, provide you with walking directions and let you find public transit schedules for better estimating your travel time.

 

Other novelties that the iPhone 2.2 OS brings include:    

  • Location sharing via email
  • Enhanced performance and stability of Safari, for a better Web browsing experience
  • Podcasts can be downloaded with iTunes (via Wi-Fi or a cellular network)
  • Fewer dropped calls and call setup failures
  • Enhanced Visual Voicemail messages and overall sound quality

You can download the iPhone 2.2 software update right away, via iTunes, of course.

    I am glad that apple is continuing to update the firmware, but can they get some priorities straight? Like better integration with exchange calendar invites and some copy paste. I would love to replace my blackberry with an IPhone at work, but these basics need to be provided. Sure Street view is nice, but all its going to do is help me find the soup line if I lose my job because I missed a calendar invite.
