Gruber reports: things are running snappier
One thing I’ve noticed in the hour or so in which I’ve been running iPhone OS 2.0.1 is that the UI, system-wide, is snappier — typing, animations, launching apps.
I hope it is in fact the update and not just resetting the phone?
In some cases, the lag can be eliminated by resetting the iPhone: Turn the iPhone off completely, by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button (on top of the device) for a few seconds then slide the red slider. Turn it back on by holding the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
Unfortunately, poor performance generally returns after a period of normal operation post-reset.
or worse? 🙂
Every time I do a software release, no matter how minor, even if I just change one word, in French, to another French word, someone will send me mail or post on a forum, “Thanks, this release seems a lot faster!”
I’m going to update tonight – I’m headed out the office door as I write this – but I hope it’s the real deal. Reported fixes:
- Better keyboard responsiveness
- Less lag in the Contacts application
- Faster backups
