UK Demo Units Run 1.1.1 iPhone Firmware, Update Imminent

According to iPhoneAtlas, a member of Cnet's family of sites, reported today that the iPhone demo units used at Apple's press conference/media event held today at the Regent Street Apple store in London were updated with the yet-to-be-released version 1.1.1 firmware. iPhone owners have been eagerly awaiting the new firmware version for many weeks.

The updated demo units which sport the new firmware allowed press conference attendees to experience the new iTunes WiFi music store which is included as part of the update. Though there was no indication if present on the demo units, also expected as part of the update is enhanced keyboard functionality, Safari debug mode and other miscellaneous bug fixes/improvements.

Though unconfirmed, the 1.1.1 update is also expected to render ineffective recently released software unlocks, such as the free iUnlock solution and the pay-to-play iPhoneSIMFree solution.

According to iPhoneAtlas, they've received word that the release of the 1.1.1 iPhone Firmware is imminent. That said, keep checking for updates via iTunes. When the update comes out, we'll be compiling a list of noticed additions/updates/improvements (since Apple always likes to leave most of them out of their release notes). Once updated, send us feedback letting us know what changes you've noticed on your iPhone.
