Apple To Fix SMS Bug? We Shall See…. [UPDATED]

The BBC is reporting that a patch is coming out for that rather nasty hole in the iPhone OS that I reported on earlier this week:

An O2 spokesperson said the patch would be available Saturday through iTunes.

“We will be communicating to customers both through the website and proactively,” the spokesperson added.

“We always recommend our customers update their iPhone with the latest software and this is no different.”

If true, this is the fastest that I have ever seen Apple come out with a patch. Which is why I have some amount of skepticism about this report. Still the fact that the iPhone has sold 5.2 million units in the quarter gone by (which likely accounts for a whole pile of money) may account for the speed at which this patch has arrived? After all, it’s all about the cash right? Nah, they’re really looking out for their users. After all, “The Steve” wouldn’t let the fanbois down now would he?

UPDATE: This appears to be fact. iPhone Software 3.0.1 is now available. There’s a document on Apple’s site that gives you the details.
