Well, finally I got through! It didn't take but fifteen minutes and everything was installed. Since I only have the 'Touch', the only new app is 'Voice Memos'...But since I don't have a microphone, it's just sitting there...
If you're a geek like I am, and watch the messages as the come round while the update is happening, you'd see that after the new software is loaded onto the phone, there's a long period where it says 'validating software' and the progress bar on the phone creeps along. So I infer from that that the installer is checking the data on the phone against the data in the installer to make sure it's uploaded correctly into the phone.
As a long-time bug tester and proof reader, I have a history of noticing stuff that other people might not even consider a bug . I'm particularly interested to know whether anyone else experiences this portrait/landscape behaviour, so here it is again more carefully written up:
• In iphone Mail (in Portrait), open a message in the Inbox • Change to Landscape orientation • The text in the message stays wrapped the same way it was in Portrait, but gets larger (i.e. zoom level goes up - and you can't manually zoom out, only in) • Now back out of the message, and back up out of Inbox to the folders list, choose another folder, open a message in that folder - it'll be rewrapped for wide screen • Now go back to that original message in Inbox and open it - the message is now at the original text size/zoom level, but rewrapped to the wide screen
• Now repeat this process after returning to Portrait orientation - the text is too small/zoomed out for a while until you come back to the message again after going up and out of the folder etc.
It seems to take the app a little while to get the idea that the orientation has changed and be willing to rewrap the text instead of just changing the zoom level.
What I expect in a Mail viewer (as compared to a browser) is that the text stays the same size when you change orientation, because the user has already chosen in the prefs the font size they're comfortable with for reading - it's not like in a browser window where it's all too small anyway, and the advantage there is to zoom in and still see the whole page width.
