Heads-up iPhone and iPad owners: you have a minor update waiting for you when you plug into iTunes

Apple released a couple of updates today, one for consumers, the other for developers. Owners of iPhones or iPad will find the update in iTunes.
The iOS update is relatively minor in that it does not add any new features, but instead fixes some issues with FaceTime call freezes and issues that caused difficulties for some iPad users outside the US connecting to 3G networks.

In the US, the update will only be found it your carrier is AT&T – Verizon users remain on a separate track when it comes to iOS updates.

Apple also released a new version of its Xcode development software. Xcode 4.0.2 was also a pretty minor update, though for users that have encountered errors it might be important to them. Xcode can be found in the Mac App Store.
