  • iPhone OS 3.0 - MMS, Copy/Paste, Turn-by-Turn, and much more Summer '09



    So it looks like the new OS for the iPhone will be showcased on March 17. Note, this doesn't mean it will be RELEASED next week. As to what the OS will bring, who knows but if it doesn't have push notifications I will be a very, very angry individual.

      STEREO BLUETOOTH

      Jesus Christ, Apple...

      "Also, Apple definitely is adding a ton, but 75% of this should have been added a LOONNNNG time ago..."

      Marketing 201: Release a base product, wait a couple of years to see what people want, then release it all when the closest thing to a competitor shows up.

      Apple REALLY wants tethering. Even though all networks havent agreed to it, they are building it into 3.0...

      So I realize the big updates aren't coming out until June, but is there any update at all being released today?

      NOPE! and if it is anything like last time, some things will not make it to the officially released 3.0 update.

      Wow! I'm actually impressed and looking forward to this update. Unfortunately I have already spent plenty of money getting all of the features that are coming. I will be happy to read threads now and not hear "where is copy and paste and landscape email/sms"!!

I'm reading they probably wont support recording video still though. (why??? what is there problem with video????)
      1) They support copy/paste
      2) They allow me to record videos (qik.com at the very least)
      3) They allow voice turn by turn driving directions
      4) I don’t care too much about MMS, but they should support it!
      5) Less slugish/lag
      6) similar to SBsettings. I don’t want to have to dig through 4 menus just to shut on/off bluetooth
      7) Flash support to play videos at least
      8) Bluetooth A2DP
      9) Multi Tasking (or at least the background push thing)
      10) tethering

      So again, I would be happy to stay vanilla as long as they at LEAST support copy/paste & recording video. If they dont support recording Video I'll be looking forward to jailbreak 3.0
      1) YES!

      2) Why no Video recording, and why dint anyone ask them during Q&A????? This is the only thing keeping me from wanting to jailbreak. WTF?

      3) YES!

      4) YES!

      5) We'll see

      6) We'll see

      7) Nothign yet

      8) YES!

      9) YES!

      10) Coming soon!
