Apple has released its first iPhone software update since Novemberís massive 2.2 offering, which introduced Google Street View support and remote podcast downloads. This time, however, the update includes mainly fixes and minor improvements which include some stability tweaks for the Safari web browser and correcting an image issue in which pictures saved from Mail don't display properly in the Camera Roll.

For iPod touch users the update also fixes an issue that caused some Apple Lossless (ALAC) audio files to during playback. Despite the brief and unexciting list of new features, the 2.2.1 update is just as big as its predecessor, weighing in at a full 246.4MB. As usual, to get the update users need only to plug their device into their computer and the update will roll in via iTunes Ė though if you have a jailbroken phone perhaps you will want to hold off until it is confirmed that itís safe to update.
