  • 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.

      Ok,

      I havent read all the pages but here is some info that some people may find useful.

      I have just downloaded the GM 3.0 for my iPhone 3G. It downloaded as a .ipsw.zip file, i simply deleted the .zip on the end and it became the .ipsw file i needed.

      I then restored in iTunes and it went through first time. I am on a dev UDID account, BUT, after restoring the iPhone didnt do the whole UDID check thing, it just activated as normal.

      What im saying is - if you dont have a dev spot for your UDID code i am pretty sure you will be ok to restore to the 3.0 GM.

      And secondly, i went to messages and then O2 sent me 2 texts, one saying they where activating MMS and then a picture to show me that MMS was activated. it works a treat.

      Am just trying tethering now.

      If anyone WITHOUT a dev spot for their UDID can try to restore and then post back their results, it would help thousands of people!

      Alright I just got 3.0 working on my 3G. I visited eBay and got my UDID added to the dev list, and restored to 3.0. Just finished 2 minutes ago and fully activated.

      I tried to update. Everything installed fine. iTunes shows sync is complete with iPhone connected, but the iPhone itself keeps flashing the Apple logo with the spinning loading icon on top of it. Oh well. Now to restore.

      i'm not a dev and it works great for me, the only thing is that i'm with at&t and no mms just as they said. it worked the first time through with no errors.

      The coolest part of the whole Demo video was the voice dialing and music selection by voice.

      Is this limited to only 3GS or will regular 3G running V3 be able to do voice dialing?

      Someone Please tell me my 3G will now do voice dialing

      Yes the update opens up your iphone 2g and installs the gps chip then the 3.0 activates it.

      I would be happy to try if someone would add me to their dev list if it does not work without it
