3gsiphone In case you somehow missed the news today, Apple has released iTunes 9 available immediately for download, and iPhone OS 3.1 for the iPhone and iPod Touch, also available now. Both updates seem worthwhile and right in line with what the Apple Rumor Mill has been suspecting, although they don’t add anything jaw-dropping in terms of new functionality or features, there’s a bunch of bug fixes and small feature additions and improvements. iTunes 9 wasn’t showing up under Software Update for me so I just downloaded it manually from Apple via the iTunes download website.

iPhone OS 3.1 updates

– iTunes U content organization
– Redeem iTunes Gift Cards, codes, and certificates in the App Store
– Display available iTunes account credits in the App Store and iTunes Store
– Save video from Mail and MMS into Camera Roll
– Option to “Save as new clip” when trimming a video on iPhone 3GS
– Use Voice Control on iPhone 3GS with Bluetooth headsets
– Paste phone numbers into the keypad
– Warn when visiting fraudulent websites in Safari (anti-phishing)

iTunes 9 updates

– iPhone / iPod Touch App organization and synching of home screen
– New Media Syncing options
