Enter URLs on the iPhone without clearing prior entries iOS devices
I'm not sure if this existed in older firmware, but in 1.1.1 when you're looking to type a new URL into Safari or Google Maps where the old URL is showing with the X button at the far right, you don't have to hit the X. All you have to do is start typing and the text field will automatically clear for the new text.

Nothing huge, but it'll save a second or two, right?

It's always been there, even from 1.0.

It may be obvious, but this also works on the iPod Touch.

It looks like someone isn't willing to give up all those wonderful apps just yet, right ?
