Apple updates iPhone software

  • Apple issued the first security update for the iPhone yesterday, beating an Aug. 2 deadline to fix a flaw researchers said could be used to steal data from the device or even force it to make calls or secretly record conversations. The iPhone 1.0.1 update, which is delivered through Apple's iTunes software and doesn't show up in the usual Software Update panel in Mac OS X (even when the phone is connected to a Mac), fixes two flaws in the Safari browser -- one in WebCore and two in WebKit.
