Rejoice, long-suffering iPhone users — Apple on Tuesday announced an update to the software that operates the iPhone and iPod touch. A free upgrade from 2.0 for both iPhone and iPod touch users, version 2.1 of the software is expected to be released for the iPhone on Friday, September 12, 2008.

If your iPod touch is still running 1.x software, it will cost $9.95 to get the 2.1 upgrade.

The 2.1 update fixes bugs, and reduces the number of dropped calls experienced by iPhone users with the 2.0 software. It also provides “significantly improved” battery life, crashes less, and provides “dramatically faster” backups to iTunes. New performance enhancements have also been made.
