Update: There may not be an iPhone 3.1.3 Blackrain Jailbreak coming.
It has been a while since the iPhone OS has been updated, so it is about time that the newest version, the iPhone OS 3.1.3, was released. The major problem…there aren’t any goodies and not any major incentives to actually update.
The iPhone 3.1.3 OS is available for all iPhone versions and is also compatible with all iPod Touch versions. The thing is, there isn’t too much actual content with this new update. As Apple mentions, it will fix the occasional bugs and errors that we have become accustomed with every single update. Moreover, it states that it will provide enhanced accuracy for battery level reports on the iPhone 3GS, repair problems that some Third Party Apps have had launching and also fixes a problem that has been going on with the iPhone not working properly with the Japanese Kana keyboard.
As mentioned…the iPhone OS 3.1.3 is not too exciting and doesn’t really deliver any goodies we could hope for…well, kind of like the iPhone 3.1.2 OS update was.
Note for Jailbroken iPhones: Blackra1n and Redsn0w have yet to be updated to work with the new iPhone 3.1.3 OS, so if you have a jailbroken phone (or are planning to jailbreak it), wait until the iPhone Jailbreaking methods have been updated as well.
