Apple aggressively pushes iPhone Software 2.0.2 update

Substantially breaking with prior tradition, which saw little publicity for point releases of its software, Apple has today taken active steps to promote version 2.0.2 iPhone Software, posting a new web page dedicated to the recent iPhone Software 2.0.2 update, an iTunes Store link, and a SMS text message to notify users of the release. The web page offers step-by-step instructions on how to update an iPhone to the most recent software, accompanied by related screenshots, while the text message reads: “An important software update for iPhone 3G has been available on iTunes since this past Monday. To get it, simply synch your iPhone 3G with iTunes and click the ‘Check For Update’ button.” It is unclear whether the announcements are related to an MSNBC article from earlier this week calling for better notification of iPhone and iPod touch software updates, or whether they are a response to legal threats relating to poor iPhone 3G performance, which Apple claims that the 2.0.2 software fixes.
