    - share location via email
  • Enhancements to Mail

  • Decrease in call set-up failures and call drops
  • Improved sound quality of visual voicemail messages
  • Pressing the Home button from any Home screen takes you to the first Home screen
  • Preferences to turn on/off auto-correction in Keyboard settings

You can download this update by connecting your iPhone / iPod to the iTunes, which Apple also updated to 8.0.2, and a pop-up window should appear to inform you that you have an update, else just click on “Check For Updates” button.

As I said in a previous post, the rumors where true...A very important note for those who already unlock & jailbreaked their iPhone .....The iPhone Dev-Team who had warns you Do NOT to update your iPhone via iTunes or else you will loose your unlock, you have to wait for the iPhone Dev Team to announce a new version of Pwnage/WinPwn/QuickPwn Tool. Until now there is no sign of a release of the jailbreak/unlock program as of yet but I’m sure it won’t be too long. I will make a post as soon as they release the jailbreak so stay updated ;).

Leave any comments about these new features and if you’re happy or not with this firmware.
