iTunes Wasn't the Only Update Yesterday

"In the midst of all the hoopla over iTunes 9.1 yesterday, Apple quietly snuck a few other updates out the door."

They also provided the iPhone Configuration Utility 2.2 for Mac OS X, QuickTime for Leopard 7.6.6 and Quicktime for Windows 7.6.6. The iPhone update does a few things, such as letting you "create, maintain, encrypt, and install configuration profiles, track and install provisioning profiles and authorized applications, and capture device information including console logs." The other two, for QuickTime, take care of "reliability issues and security, along with some reliability improvements for iMovie." Oh, and lest I forget, there was also an iPhoto update to 8.1.2.

iPhone Software v. 2.2 Available Now

"What's in this update:

Enhancements to Maps
Google Street View; Public transit and walking directions; Display address of dropped pins; Share location via email; Decrease in call setup failures and dropped calls.

Enhancements to Mail
Resolved isolated issues with scheduled fetching of email; Improved formatting of wide HTML email.

Podcasts are now available for download in iTunes application (over Wi-Fi and cellular network); Improved stability and performance of Safari; Improved sound quality of Visual Voicemail messages; Pressing Home button from any Home screen displays the first Home screen; Preference to turn on/off auto-correction in Keyboard Settings."

Well, let's be honest. None of this is going to be disruptive, massive, or huge, but it is welcome. I imagine there's more under the hood than above it in this case, and sorry folks, but still no copy and paste. Overall this update is meh-riffic and looks more like an update to Google Maps than the entire OS, but then again, it's only a point-release. I'm doing the upgrade now and will have more to report on after I use it a bit throughout the day. Hopefully it'll be more impressive in real life than it is on paper.

Rumor: Podcast Downloading in iPhone Firmware 2.2

"The new iTunes Store screenshots confirm that Apple will be delivering over-the-air downloads for both video and audio podcasts. According to Schimanke, podcast downloads will be limited to episodes less than 10MB in size when using the cellular network. The screenshots also show off the new App Store category view with icons embedded. Additional 2.2 features previously revealed include the addition of Google Street View and Japanese Emoji icons."

Welcome news? Most definitely. If this rumor turns out to be true, one of the biggest knocks against the iPhone will have been remedied internally and officially. It's also nice, if this screenshot is true, that you don't have to be hooked up via WiFi to use the feature. Me? I don't really care one way or the other. Honestly, I've long since become disenchanted with a lot of podcasts I used to love and only listen to / watch a few of them, but it would be nice to not have to hook up my iPhone to grab the latest episodes. Any of you out there excited about this? Have you been holding out on the iPhone because it didn't do podcast downloading natively?
