Apple released iPhone firmware version 1.0.2 last night via iTunes. The update screen says only that the 3.7MB update includes "bug fixes."

iPhone 1.02 firmware

Isn't it high time that Apple comes clean about what these updates really do? Remember the Web gallery update?

iPhone 1.02 firmware read me

My favorite comment from Digg.com about the update: "The party doesn't really start until Leopard ships, I am guessing."

Update: People are theorizing about what features (if any) the 1.0.2 firmware update includes:

  • Safari seems snappier
  • Safari has faster navigation around the UI (bookmarks, etc.)
  • Switching between multiple Web pages is smoother
  • Camera appears to have image stabilization
  • Sound seems more crisp over the headphones
  • More YouTube videos available

Another great comment from Digg: "Maybe this update is just a placebo... It is forcing everyone to think that something must have improved and psychologically makes them think that the volume has boosted or the sound quality has improved."

Gizmodo has confirmed that iFuntastic 2.5 works with the new 1.0.2 firmware and Engadget has confirmed that Jailbreak still works on the new firmware. Install Script for 1.0.2 (for Installer.ap) also works with the new firmware.

  • I was thinking of getting an iPhone

    until I found it does not supoport flash, java, or shockwave, and people that I know who have the iPhone said that youtube and other streaming media only works on a wifi, and not the ATT data plan.

    Can anyone confirm or deny these? More specifically can someone confirm wheather pandora.com will work on the iPhone? The video I really do not care about.

    I am on the sprint network, but my 2 year contract is up, so I can switch, but I have been told that the Sprint data is faster then ATT.

    Can someone tell me if this is true or not?

    • data speeds

      Yes Sprint data speeds are faster than ATT. Sprint and VZ are on a higher frequency CDMA network and have transfer rates significantly faster than what is available for ATT. Apple could not come to terms with Sprint or VZ because of the amount of control they wanted to deal directly with the iphone customers and had to go with the slower network.

      • Do you know if

        pandora.com will work? It is an internet radio. My favorite one so far.

        • No, it won't work

          Steve Jobs doesn't use Pandora.com so neither can you.

            from personal experience, or are you just making things up (as usual)?

      • AT&T's Strategy to Boost Speeds is 3G

        ...which is only available in limited markets and the iPhone doesn't even support it.
