Rumor: iPhone 2.2 Update Due on November 21st

According to, version 2.2 of the iPhone firmware will be made available on November 21. The site says that the tipster is “reliable” but offered few details. Gizmodo calls the site “consistently reliable.”

Rumor has it that the update will contain:

Street View, public transportation and walking directions for Maps

An always-visible search field in Safari

A rating request before you delete an app

The ability to download podcasts directly to your handset

Location sharing via email

Support for Emoji icons

An option to turn off auto-correction

There is still no word, of course, about the most requested and elusive of options: copy and paste. Gizmodo seems to think that — if the release date is indeed on the 21st — the major features of the update have been frozen. Looks like we’ll have to wait until 2.3.
