Apple releases iPhone 2.0.1 OS through iTunes

iPhone 2.0.1 OS update from iTunesIf you’ve recently purchased an iPhone 3G, or upgraded your original iPhone to the iPhone 2.0 OS, you’ll probably already have logged in some serious time with the AppStore and all the new features (like improved web surfing) that make the iPhone 2.0 OS so much more usable than previous versions. You’re also likely well aware of the new iPhone OS’s tendency to bog down and lag every once in a while. Sure, it can get annoying, but what are you going to do?

Well, in case you haven’t yet noticed, Apple has seeded the latest version of the iPhone OS through iTunes. iPhone 2.0.1 OS, as it’s known, seems to improve the iPhone’s stability and speed. The new firmware is a hefty 250MB download so set aside a good chunk of time to download and install the sucker.

We’ll see how the iPhone 2.0.1 OS treats us in the long run.  Anyone else noticing a stability or speed improvement?

    The 2.01 update is much faster, especially in app switching, accessing my large address book, and for text entry. Thanks Apple! I do not know if it is more stable yet, but it seems to be so for the past few hours – a full day of use will tell me more…

    I noticed a big fat ZERO, even though the thing says I’m at 2.01 now I had to wonder if it actually upgraded as I noticed not a single improvement. Lets hope 2.02 helps fixes this fix.

    Good morning, I have downloaded the 2.0.1 update from a different computer (Mac) as the internet that I havemy iPhone 3G linked with has very slow net. I was wondering how to install the 2.0.1 onto my iPhone 3G on my PC, as I have ported it across via USB drive…

    Could someone please help me?

    Thanks in advance,
