Remember the apocalypse SMS flaw that we told you about the other day?
Well there is a rumor that Apple is so concerned that they are going to release a patch out of cycle.


This rumor comes from O2 the iPhone's UK carrier. If the information they are providing is accurate this new patch will be available on iTunes this weekend.


Of course there is no word if this is a standalone patch (3.0.1?) or if they are going to bump up the release of 3.1. We know that 3.1 should be in the final days of its Beta run so it is entirely possible that Apple is just bumping up the time line for release. After all they can run minor bug fixes after the fact, but this SMS flaw is so major that they really have to do something now.
