iPhone & iPod touch firmware 3.1.2 released

Apple has silently released a firmware update for the iPhone, 3G and 3GS. The updated firmware, version 3.1.2, is available now on iTunes 9.0 for download and includes bug fixes, rather than the usual security updates and feature additions. The small change log for updated firmware includes the following fixes:

  • Resolves sporadic issue that may cause iPhone to not wake from sleep
  • Resolves intermittent issue that may interrupt cellular network services until restart
  • Fixes bug that could cause occasional crash during video streaming
The update will fix some issues with cellular network problems that consumers have reported in the past, but some further issues with AT&T's network may still persist. An updated firmware for the iPod touch is also available from iTunes.

The iPhone firmware 3.1 brings a lot of new features to the iPhone, despite only being released one month ago, on September 9. The new Genius features added last month to firmware 3.1 included new APIs for developers, Genius mixes and recommendations, security and performance improvements over firmware 3.0 and many more fixes.

Users who require jailbreaking their phone in order to receive service will lose service by updating.

iPhone and iPod touch users can expect to see a mobile version of Neowin.net in the coming weeks:
