In a meeting this morning with the UK Apple press team, it was confirmed to Pocket-lint that version 1.1.2 will be an international update on Friday 9th November for all iPhone owners.

Although the time could not be confirmed, iPhone owners who sync their device with iTunes tomorrow in the States will be presented with the option to upgrade to the new firmware.

Among other things, the update brings wider language support with international keyboards and special character keys, and access to The Cloud Wi-Fi hotspots for UK users.

Apple would not comment, but it is widely believed that this update will re-lock any unlocked iPhones, so any renegade Apple mobile owners are advised caution.
