Apple officially released the update to version 1.1.2 of the iPhone signing through iTunes tonight.
The update had been distributed as a 'stand alone' installer, to be downloaded via the web, as early as last Friday, when the marketing of European iPhones had started, but now it appears in iTunes when the phone is connected to the program designed both to synchronize the phone with the contents that, precisely, to provide him with updates.
As is known, the firmware introduces some new features, including the main one, at least for the Italian public, the official support for some international keyboards and languages, including ours with its dictionary.
Equally known is the fact that the update overcomes the holes that allowed to install third-party applications and to universalize compatibility with the SIM and therefore to use the mobile phone with mobile operators not provided by Apple.
Among the news to report is the fact that the iPhone 1.1.2 firmware recognizes the Turbosim and makes them usable; the phone is registered on the network but cannot make calls. Hackers have already found the system to overcome the measures put in place by Apple, at least as regards the so-called jailbreaking that allows you to install third-party applications and possibly even an unlock of the SIM that hackers are working on.
Also available via iTunes, in addition to iPhone 1.1.2, also the iPod Touch 1.1.2 firmware.
In this case there are small news: a battery icon next to that of the iPod Touch when you connect it to iTunes (a new feature that is also present in the new iPhone firmware) and the possibility of adding events to the appointment calendar. hackers have already overcome the blockade imposed on third-party software that Apple has applied by closing a security hole in the treatment of TIFF files exploited for this purpose.
