Rumor: iPhone 2.2 firmware on November 21

Reports are coming in that the iPhone's next major firmware update, 2.2 is scheduled to launch November 21, 2008. This is the next major update to the iPhone since 2.1 released September 12 of this year. Apple has been showing off some of its new features in Beta 1 and Beta 2, where user requests were filled, with a lot of Google additions to the software.

This update comes loaded with some additional features to the iPhone (3G) such as, a new look for Safari's Google search bar, a toggle button to enable or disable Auto-correct keyboard, Google Street View, Google Transit information, with walking directions included. The App Store is getting an update as well with icons added to the categories, with a couple of new buttons like "Tell A Friend" and a "Report A Problem" button. Still no word on the requested "Copy and paste" feature.

The firmware update will be available on iTunes via the "Update" button built into the software. This update will be available for the iPhone, and the iPhone 3G, and the iPod Touch.
