The iPhone 1.0.1 Update must be installed through the iTunes application. It will not appear on the Apple Support Downloads web site.

iTunes automatically checks Apple’s update server on a weekly. When an update is detected, it will download it. Users also have the option of manually requesting the update with the "Check for Updates" button or menu choice in iTunes.
