iPhone 3.0 Software To Have 100 New Features
Some time last month, Apple previewed its upcoming iPhone 3.0 software which will run on all iPhone and iPod Touch devices later this year. In a word, it looks like it will be AMAZING. This is a major software release for the iPhone platform and it’s packed with over 100 new features and innovations – yet another nail in the coffins of those mobile smart phones that would like to believe that they’re in the same league as the iPhone.
Noteworthy improvements to the user experience include a few subtle changes as well as some game-changing new features. Starting with the basics, Cut, Copy and Paste for text and pictures has finally made it to the iPhone. Landscape Keyboards in all primary applications, Multimedia Messaging (MMS) and Voice Memos as well. These are relatively basic features which have been missing from previous version of the iPhone.

New innovative features include Spotlight search in every application AND across the entire phone. That is, you can search across the hundreds of applications in your device as well as in your music and videos without having to navigate any menus. How about that! Turn by turn navigation using GPRS has also been enabled – thus allowing for real time directions while driving. Wireless Bluetooth headphones and speakers are also now supported under the A2DP standard. Plus lots of other new features.
Undoubtedly the new iPhone 3.0 platform will provide the base necessary to drive the continuation of the growing iPhone App Store and fuel the overall success of the device. I can’t wait!
