Apple tonight released iPhone Software Version 1.0.1, which according to the company is dedicated solely to “bug fixes,” specifically security patches related to iPhone’s Safari browser.


The free download, available through the Check for Updates feature in iTunes 7.3, patches five security issues related to maliciously created web sites, including cross-site scripting, code execution, cross-site requests, masquerading web site URLs, and unexpected application termination. No additional features appear to have been added to the iPhone beyond Safari security fixes. Running the application results in verification of the iPhone’s existing software, then an update of the software to version 1.0.1 (1C25).

Passcode Lock now has configurable time. Previously, you could set when the phone went to sleep, but the passcode lock was either off or 1 minute. It is now configurable at different time intervals.

I know this is supposed to be security/Safari only, but after I applied the update I can now FINALLY send e-mail from my Yahoo push account. Others are reporting improved performance in Mail (see TUAW). They clearly tweaked the Mail app.

The number of favorites has also been increased. The former limit was (ridiculously) 20. I don’t know what the new limit is, but I now have approx. 25 entries, and counting.
