Apple releases iPhone 1.1.1 Update with iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store and more

Apple today released iPhone 1.1.1 Update which includes additional new features, bug fixes, and supercedes all previous versions.

New features include:
• iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store
• Louder speakerphone and receiver volume
• Home Button double-click shortcut to phone favorites or music controls
• Space bar double-tap shortcut to intelligently insert period and space
• Mail attachments are viewable in portrait and landscape
• Stocks and cites in Stocks and Weather can be re-ordered
• Apple Bluetooth Headset battery status in the Status Bar
• Support for TV Out
• Preference to turn off EDGE/GPRS when roaming internationally
• New Passcode lock time intervals
• Adjustable alert volume

iPhone 1.1.1 Update is available via iTunes’ iPhone Update (152.3MB).

MacDailyNews Note: We have tested the update on a up-to-date, kosher (locked) iPhone and, after the download, it took about 8 minutes for the iPhone to restart, verify the software, update the iPhone’s firmware, and restart again. The phone then waited 10 seconds while re-activating with AT&T. All new features work as advertised. We purchased an album (Foo Fighters “Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace for US$9.99) via the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store and downloaded the album via Wi-Fi in about 3 minutes. Reconnecting the iPhone to iTunes caused iTunes to automatically transfer the purchased album to our iTunes library. It worked perfectly.

  1. It’s been almost three months and Apple has simply not gone far enough in updating the iPhone. When I’m on the road, I really depend on being able to manipulate 3D visualizations of simian genome models. I also run algorithms that test proofs on Fermat’s Last Theorem and in the background I need to be able to render high definition, catastrophic weather and explosion scenarios. The iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store and louder speakerphone and receiver volume are nice additions but I’m really disappointed.
    I sure hope the next software update for my iPhone let’s me get back to work. Or at least adds some really cool games.

  2. Adding the ‘tv out’ capability is awesome! Now if they support Keynote or Powerpoint I could just take this thing along for meetings/presentations instead of my Macbook.

    Also, it looks as though they changed the Calculator icon. Or am I just imagining this change?
