Security Patch for IPhone

Apple releases security patch for iPhone, the purpose of iPhone's software is disallowd hackers to tak control of the multimedia cell phone to spread spam or steal data.

The iPhone hijacking vulnerability was only theoretical, there were no reports of criminals taking advantage of the glitch.

If iPhone connected to computers or internet, this patch are more help.

a combination cell phone, iPod player and wireless Web gadget - quickly became a popular research target after its June 29 launch. Its first-ever software update came just two days before analysts at Independent Security Evaluators were set to discuss the iPhone's hijacking hole at a hackers convention in Las Vegas.

On wednesday Jennifer Bowcock say "One of the great things about iPhone is that we can easily deliver software updates and bug fixes through iTunes when necessary,"

Also the consumer's complaints are about the iPhone's battery.

Chicago attorney Larry Drury filed a class-action lawsuit last week against Apple and the iPhone's exclusive U.S. carrier, AT&T Corp., alleging the companies failed to properly disclose the associated replacement costs and limited life of the gadget's battery.

In a Phone interview Drury say "The public is entitled to know what they're getting for the money that they spent,".

The lawsuit, which names Chicago-area resident Jose Trujillo as the plaintiff, was filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County in Illinois.

"The costs are too expensive" Thats content of The New York consumer Protection board letter. They complained that the battery replacement costs are too expensive. In the July 17 letter, the state agency asked Apple to improve its iPhone return policy and change the battery design so it can replaced by the user instead of requiring Apple repair service for a new battery and paying extra for a loaner unit in the interim.

Jennifer Bowcock and Fletcher Cook declined to comment on the iPhone complaints, citing company policies against discussing pending litigation matters.
