iPhone 2.1 Software Update

Finally have time to install the new iPhone 2.1 update on my iPhone.  Took me a little bit over 40 minutes for the whole update and install process (237.8MB altogether this time).  Really like the new functions, such as more info on tracks/podcast played on the iPod and time remaining from last played; the 3G/EDGE signal upgrade (reception seemed a lot better at least for me); shorter backup time (gee, thanks Apple, finally) and installation for new apps; and the Genius playlist which I don’t have time to play around yet.  As for the rumored better/longer battery life, still need couple days to tell.

However, been getting a lot of mixed reviews all across the wire.  Engadget ran an article saying that some users been experiencing degradation to their 3G signals and been having problem with their email.  Guess we’ll find out how all that pans out in a few days.

How’s your upgrade working?
