Apple releases iPod touch firmware 1.1.5

Apple has released firmware version 1.1.5 for the iPod touch. The new software is meant as an update for iPod touch users who choose not to purchase the $9.99 iPhone 2.0 Software Update for the iPod touch. According to Mac Rumors, early reports indicate that the firmware provides no new features, but may improve the speed and stability of existing applications. iPod touch firmware 1.1.5 is available now as a free update through iTunes.

Alright, how many comments will be about iTouch owners complaining about having to pay for a firmware upgrade?  Can that complaint get any older?

Wow, this is the first I’ve heard about this. What was Apple’s reason for charging for the update?

I thought the purpose of the 2.0 software was so that people could buy and use apps from the iTunes store. This is about as reasonable as Wal-Mart charging admission. As if the Touch didn’t have enough drawbacks.

Apple must really be having some financial problems. First they stop including a dock in the iPhone package, and now they’re charging people for software updates!

Just a quick question for Touch owners…is 2.0 laggy?  According to my buds who have downloaded it, it just seems as though the original firmware ran much smoother.  Anyone else experiencing this or are my friends making me paranoid about updating my ipod Touch.

Art,

The 2.0 upgrade definately has caused some issues on my Touch.  Lots of crashes to the home screen, laggy, stopped responding, etc.  I have had to power down my Touch more in the last 5 days then I have in the previous six months since I got it in January.  Unfortunately without the upgrade there are no apps, so I guess I’ll just have to deal with it for now.

Brian,

Thanks, apps really aren’t that important to me at the moment.  I’ll be damned if I am going to pay for something that makes my currently smooth running and perfect touch worse. 

I’ll wait until 2.01.

My 32gig iPod Touch is a little laggy since the 2.0 upgrade, but it’s more than bearable for me, heck, I had an iPod classic and nothing’s laggier than THAT device!

Mail and Safari crashes way too often for my tastes though, but I am enjoying the App Store.

I really hope the 2.01 upgrade fixes all the crashing.

I love the 2.0 I have had no lag or crashes yet and hope to get 2.0.1 tomorrow when I go to my cousin’s house (I got dial-up, it would take forever to upgrade from that).
