iPhone 2.1 Update Coming Friday: Less Call Drops, Crashes, Faster Sync, Better Battery Life

Illustration for article titled iPhone 2.1 Update Coming Friday: Less Call Drops, Crashes, Faster Sync, Better Battery Life

We were hoping for it, and it looks as though will actually get the iPhone 2.1 update on Friday. Word is that the free update will "fix a lot of bugs." Expect less call drops, crashes, better battery life, and a faster sync (thank God). Still no copy and paste though. Bumnmer. UPDATE: Current iPod touch owners will have to spend $10 to get the 2.1 software via iTunes—unless you purchased 2.0. For those users it is a free update. It is also included free with the purchase of a new unit.

Sod cut-and-paste or any other additions, just get the damn thing working.

After trying to install an update via the App Store on the phone this morning and it failing I was left with every time I turned it on it asking for the iTunes password. It took a complete restore without restoring the backup to get it working again (MobileMe was actually useful as it restored the calendar/contacts).

If they don't fix these sort of stupid bugs (iTunes has many copies of the same app now too) it will be the last Apple product I buy. They have seriously gone downhill since I bought a Mac.
