Iphone Firmware 1.1.3 Improvements

Apple Logo
The Apple Iphone 1.1.3 firmware was released last week and has already added a plethora of useful updates. With much positive energy coming from this update, a list was made over at Iphonehacks.com outlining some of the most important of the changes. Also, you may find that some updates weren’t mentioned, such as the SMS storage size (something from like 7,500 to like some absurd number over 50,000) ,which could be important to some Iphone users, like my friend over in Babylon who texts like he’s on an Instant Messaging client.
*edit* Since this page is getting a bunch of hits, i’ve added some info from iphonehacks.com to this page. Please be sure to visit their website, regardless.
