iPhone update adds features, fixes battery error

According to discussions on Apple’s support site and several reader reports, it appears iPhone Software 1.0.1 includes a few new features, along with the known bug fixes and security patches. There is now a BCC: option in the phone’s Mail Settings to send yourself a copy — this was previously only a CC: option. Passcode Lock timing options have been expanded up to “After 1 Hour,” and it has also been reported that the 1.0.1 update fixes a previously reported battery issue in which the iPhone’s display would not indicate a full charge.

if i’m not mistaken, there’s another enhancement in the mail settings: the mail preview can now show up to 5 lines. (wasn’t the limit 3 lines before?)

Sounds Good,

Funny.  I thought I found 3 or 4 new features only to find they were there all along.

iPhone mail has always supported up to 5 lines.  I’ve been using 4 lines since the 3rd day I had my phone.

Sorry but the Always BCC myself has always been there.  There is still NO BCC: option when sending a new message.

Another minor fix - if you watch a YouTube video which you’ve already bookmarked, at the end of the video it’ll only give you the option to share the video, not bookmark or share it. Before the update, it used to show both options but “Bookmark” was grayed out. Unfortunately, against the background of the screen the grey wasn’t always easily visible, which led to people often trying to bookmark a video they’d already bookmarked previously.

Always BCC was not always there. Always CC was.

Another fix: Neither of my dock-connector-based car adapters for my iPod worked with the iPhone running the 1.00 firmware.

After flashing to the 1.01 firmware, I noticed that the Kensington FM transmitter now works.  I don’t have my Belkin unit with me, so I can’t test that right now, but hope that it may now work, as well.

The nunber of contacts in favorites has been increased from the original (silly) 20. I don’t know what the new limit is, but I’m up to 25, so far.

After reading your comment I ran to see if my iPhone now worked with my PocketDock. Unfortunately, it still doesn’t. I guess SendStation will have to modify their hardware to make the PocketDock work with the iPhone, not Apple modify their software.

always bcc was there.
restore your phone back to v1 if you want to see for yourself.

also it didn’t fix the battery bug.

Does anyone know if the mail setting; Remove deleted messages after… has been fixed and now actually works?

And did they pump up the voLUME on the ear piece?

I noticed today that Mail now supports nested IMAP folders. Yay! My work has the main Inbox folder and all other folders must be created under that—no additional root folders could be created. The poor iPhone could only show the Inbox, but now, all my folders have appeared.
