iPhone 3.1 Software Update Features [u]

September 9th, 2009

iPhone-3.1Version 3.1 of the iPhone software is now available for free download.

This version adds the following bug fixes and new features:

  • Genius recommendations for Apps
  • iTunes 9 support – genius mixes, organize your iPhone apps using iTunes on your computer, more syncing options
  • More iTunes account control – redeeming gift cards and displaying available credits.
  • Browse, buy and download ringtones.
  • More save options when working with video clips
  • Voice Control over Bluetooth headsets
  • Past phone numbers into the keypad
  • Anti-phising warnings in Safari
  • Improved Exchange syncing

icon-bluetooth-20090608Voice Control over Bluetooth is a welcome addition if you use a bluetooth headset while driving (like we all have to in California.)

Ring tones are $1.29. A 29 cent premium to not have to cut the track ourselves, not too bad.

The update is a 300MB download and is for all iPhones.

Connect your iPhone to iTunes, select your iPhone in the devices list and click “check for updates.”

[UPDATED] We recommend installing iTunes 9 first, and then installing 3.1. Total install time seems to be faster in that order.
