|Apple iPhone firmware release 3.1.3|
Thursday, 04 February 2010 16:24
Apparently the update allows the 3GS iPhone to measure battery performance better and allows the phone to detect how much battery life is left.
It also fixed some bugs, such as the bug which prevented users from opening some third-party applications, as well as a bug that caused applications to crash out of the blue when using the Japanese Kana onscreen keyboard.
The new firmware update also takes care of a security issue whereby previously there was the possibility, due to a “memory corruption issue”, that people could access a locked iPhone and the data on the phone if they got hold of the device.
The update is 228MB in size and can be downloaded through iTunes.
The company has also pre-released a version of iPhone OS 3.2 to registered iPhone software developers, which according to the company includes new features of the iPad, such as support for larger display sizes, pop-up menus and richer text presentations.
The new 3.2 OS will be generally available around about May, when the first iPad devices start to ship.
