  • 3.0 June 17th. Or Today.


    3.0 chatter has been going on a while now (and is already jailbroken and officially has Cydia ready and released for it, you faithful hackery types), and WWDC marked the official date announcement - June 17th (pf.edit, thanks guys - not the 19th). Developers were given out the gold master today - bye bye betas.

    We've already been over most of the 3.0 improvements, and Apple tossed us a couple bones as well:
    • MMS supported from 29 carriers as of game day, although AT&T will get that to us "later this summer". Thanks, AT&T.
    • Safari has got some solid speed increases - JavaScript 3x faster, HTML 5 support, HTTP streaming a/v, and auto-fill (nice).
    • Tethering supported from 22 carriers. Of course AT&T won't be on that list, but are sure they'll get to it soon.
    • You can now RENT and PURCHASE movies from the iPhone through iTunes, including audiobooks.

    iPod Touch users save your pennies - the upgrade will be free for iPhone users, but $9.95 for iPod Touch folks, same as 2.0 was.

      I restore to 3.0 using itunes 8.2 (not beta) using my mac by pressing option restore. i was on 3.0 already but i messed around lost the mms option and found the only way to get it back was to do a clean restore and set my phone up as new. i dont think restoring or even upgrading should be an issue for anyone who is on 3.0 right now. i did the same thing with 2.0 last year i had it on my 2g iphone before it was released and i updated it without any problems.

      You're not. Hopefully FW3.0 will be unlocked with BB 4.2x and you will be able to upgrade to that and unlock.
      We should hear something on Friday.

      If I upgraded to the 3.0 OS and now I want to go back down to 2.2.1 how would I do that. Every time I try iTunes has a error and won't restore.

      i wonder if I might have a similar problem. Had 2.2.1 jailbroken and upgraded to the final 3.0 version. I don't see the mms opton anywhere though, where I'm I supposed to see it? Do I need to restore again to get it? I do notice cut and paste, landscape text ect. But the mms feature seems to be missing?? Something elese I've notice when trying to forcing apps to close (using the 10 sec home button) doent do anything either...
      What should I do?
      Thanks alot all

      I had the same problem. To get the MMS option you have to update the .ipcc file. You can get it here with the instructions.

      The force apps to close has also changed.

      So, I'm currently at work 7:41 AM and won't be home from work unil 8:0 PM. Will I be able to just plug my phone into my Mac at work and hit Update in iTunes and not have to re-sync with my PC at home(which is currently down at the moment)?

      I was able to do it with the 3.0 GM Seed.

      3.0 won't be out until tomorrow, but I believe the answer is no. You will probably have to do a clean install.

      If your in the Southern Hemisphere & watching , waiting for the clock to tick over to the 17th, might as well go to bed. The date has been changed on the Aust & NZ sites to the 18th.

      God forbid we get it first.

      Hi guys:

      Final hours before the official 3.0 is released. I have 2 questions: 1.- will the official version be different than 3.0 GM final? I have this one on my phone and it works well. I uploaded the ipcc file by Stealh and MMS was working fine. Not working currently. 2.- I have noticed that on stanby the battery lasts longer, but when the phone is in use, it drains rather fast. Any suggestions?? Keep up modding and the great work by everyone, especially the Dev team. Have a great 3.0 unveil!!
