iPod touch Software 2.2 out minus Maps enhancements

Friday, November 21, 2008  |  2 comments
In addition to today's release of iPhone Software 2.2 for iPhone and iPhone 3G, Apple has released the “iPhone 2.2 Software Update for iPod touch,” containing a comparatively shorter list of improvements. Notably absent in Apple’s changelog are references to improvements to the Maps application, which on the iPhone and iPhone 3G has gained Google Street View, transit information, and walking directions. Here is what Apple lists as improvements to the iPod touch version of the software:
  • Secure WPA Wi-Fi network connection issues have been fixed.
  • E-mail fetching problems have been resolved.
  • Wide HTML e-mail formatting has been improved.
  • Auto-correcting keyboard can be turned on or off.
  • Safari is more stable and performs better.
  • Podcasts can be downloaded from iTunes application.
  • Pressing Home button from any Home screen returns you to the first Home screen.
The iPod touch version of the iPhone Software 2.2 is available now as a 277.7MB download from iTunes 8.0.2 by selecting your iPod touch under Devices and clicking on the Check for Update/Update button. It is free for users with earlier 2.x iPhone Software.

    I suspect that Apple will tell us Touch owners that having the other features would be of little benefit because to be useful, a cell connection would be necessary. This, because most Wi-Fi spots would be WEP or WPA protected, and therefore unavailable to us lowly Touch owners.
