Earlier today we posted the high-level details of the Apple event that took place. We promised more details when they emerged, so here is the exact updates straight from Apple that are going into iPhone OS 3.1.1. The biggest impact will be the iTunes 9 and Genius support. Check out the list:

iPhone OS 3.1.1 Software Update for iPod touch

This update contains bug fixes and improvements, including the following:

• Genius recommendations for Applications
• iTunes 9 support
   - Genius Mixes
   - Organize your apps directly in iTunes
   - Improved syncing options for music, movies, TV shows, podcasts and photos
   - iTunes U content organization
• Redeem iTunes Gift cards, codes and certificates in the App Store
• Display available iTunes account credits in App Store and iTunes Store
• Remotely lock iPod touch with a passcode via MobileMe
• Warn when visiting fraudulent websites in Safari (anti-phishing)
• Improved Exchange calendar syncing and invitation handling
• Fixes issue that caused some app icons to display incorrectly

At least Apple didn’t charge iPod Touch users $10 for this like they did for the OS 3.0 update which contained critical security updates.
