The 2.2 update brings a decrease in call failures and dropped calls, something a high number of iPhone 3G owners had complained about. Those who enjoy various types of Podcats can now download them over WiFi and respective carrier networks through the help of the iTunes application on the device.
Email has also been tweaked and the issue of downloading them, as set in timed intervals, has been fixed. In addition to this, Apple claims to have achieved a more desirable outlook for wide HTML emails. With the latest update, Safari gets to see some light of day as well. It is more stable, improved in performance and can be seen supporting a new user friendly search option.
The Google Maps application has been fitted with Google Street View, public transit and walking directions, the capability to display an address of a dropped pin and the ability to share a location through email.
Other enhancements include: better sound quality for Visual Voicemail, the option to switch on/off the auto-correct feature and last but not least, pressing the Home button from any Home screen takes you to the first one.
