“Apple has quietly begun testing iPhone Software 2.2, distributing the code among beta testers,” Jonny Evans reports for Macworld UK.
“The software apparently restores the capability to push email to the device in the background and better GPS-functionality, enabling more accurate reporting of speed or position while in a moving vehicle, for example,” Evans reports.

In iPhone Software 2.2, “one of the subtle changes in this update is in the Safari interface,” Milind Alvares reports for Smoking Apples.
“The interface change , while not a big one by any stretch of the imagination, is driven by the need to display that Google search field throughout the interface. They have done away with the magnifying glass and replaced it with a Google search field, in a manner similar to how it’s displayed in landscape mode. The stop/refresh button has been moved right into the address field, saving a lot of space,” Alvares reports.
