  • 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.

      okay... im abandoning this thread...

      it's gotten way to inundated with people who simply can't read the front page. to cluttered with first time posters who keep repeating the same questions over and over again without taking the time to read.

      AND more importantly.

      People just making claims without backing it up. If you happen to live in BumF, USA wherever, and you happen to have a report that iPhone 3.0 FW is being pushed back to Dec 12, 2012, then please post a screen capture. Otherwise, it will be out later today if you live in the US, or Tomorrow if you live in the East... Sorta because technically it's already Tomorrow in the East... The point is, is that it will be out sometime within the next 14 hours, and in roughly 24 to 48 hours it will be Jailbroken.

      P.F. Sorry for wasting your bandwidth with all my idiotic screen captures and redundant arguments with children who's parents just bought them their iPhones and heard something called Jailbreaking from the big kids.

      I like how everyone thought it'd be available instantly, like midnight in their time zone.

      this site: http://ax.phobos.apple.com.edgesuite...tCheck/version

      lists all firmware crap for all devices... search for 3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw it will show the firmware for the 3G S and thats it... the second it shows the 1,2 and 1,1 then it will finally be released.

      really it wouldn't be that hard for someone to make a website that constantly monitors that list and posts a notification the second the results change. email alerts, post tot he board, whatever

      Well, I honest wouldn't be surprised if it was "delated". Apple is getting worst than MS about releases. The news about 3.0 came out months ago at a conference stating it'd be ready in June. When June came, they did an updated slideshow saying it'd be ready later in June. HORRIBLE.

      Afraid I already know the answer but, I'll ask anyway:

      Do we get the "Voice Control" feature with the 3.0 firmware update if we only have the iPhone 3g?

      Thnx

      No, 3GS only, as far as I am aware.

      Oh I'm right with you I checked at midnight, although I knew somehow it wouldn't be there. Just gotta wait it out.

      No because Apple has publicly said the current iPhone hardware is incapable of doing so...even though my mom's free motorola can do it. Apple just needs to own up to the fact that they don't WANT to provide the capability...not that the phone can't.
