This afternoon, Apple released the latest firmware update for its iPhone, which promises to fix the device’s bugs, improve its battery life, and also includes the company’s new Genius recommendation technology.We’ve been having a play, and it’s fairly simple on the device, since it isn’t tied into the iTunes Store like its desktop equivalent. Instead, you go to the Playlists option in the iPhone’s iPod application, and choose ‘Genius’, then select a track from those stored on the iPhone.The software then auto-creates a playlist of similar songs from those stored on the phone, and starts playing it. The idea, presumably, is that you tell the iPhone ‘I’m in a Fleet Foxes’ kind of mood, and it then ensures you don’t get any Sven Vath techno workouts. Or something.
