iPhone and iPod touch owners can now update their devices to iPhone OS 3.1.3, though they shouldn’t expect significant changes. According to the official changelog, this new version makes only a few small modifications.
- Improves accuracy of the reported battery level on iPhone 3GS
- Resolves issue where third-party apps would not launch in some instances
- Fixes bug that may cause an app to crash when using the Japanese Kana keyboard

The upgrade to iPhone OS 3.1.3 is available now. To install it, connect the phone to a computer running iTunes.
This upgrade is also available for all devices running iPhone OS 3.1, which includes the iPod touch.
This is not the system software upgrade many are hoping for: iPhone OS 3.2. Unlike the new version released today, the upcoming one is rumored to offer some significant enhancements.
It’s not clear if all of these changes will be in v3.2, but future versions of this operating system are supposedly going to include an application launcher with support for both portrait and landscape modes and a spell checker. In addition, a new version of the Safari web browser will reportedly offer support for uploading files, as well as greater support for downloading and saving them.
