Apple Demos iPhone OS 3.0
At a special media event today, Apple took the wraps off of the next major release of iPhone OS 3.0 for iPhone and iPod touch.
When the production iPhone OS 3.0 release arrives later this summer, customers can expect some new, and often requested, features including:
- Search your iPhone
- Cut, copy, and paste
- Send photos, contacts, audio files, and location via MMS
- Read and compose email and text messages in landscape
If you are a paying iPhone OS developer (Standard Program $99, Enterprise Program $299), you can download the latest beta SDK today. If you are like me, and are amazed by what developers can do, we'll have to wait until later this year when Apple releases the final version of the iPhone OS software.
In the mean time, you can check out a recording of today's iPhone OS 3.0 media event as a QuickTime stream on the Apple website.
