    , and
  • 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.

      With ALL these enhancements i bet they haven't even gotten FLASH to work on it with Safari...apple aHOLES!!! They are always lookin to stick it to the users that have been supporting the damned thing in the first place...

      Who is that scrwany little guy again that announces the technology updates at the conferences?? I want to KICK THE F@<&ING LIVING S#!] OUT OF HIM!!!! He is SOOOOOOOOOOOOO ANNOYING and makes it like he is the S#!] that thought up all the addons and updates that were made and that they are the best updates in the universe!!!

      THANK GOD FOR THE DEV TEAM!!!!! If jailbreaking weren't around i would not have an iPhone right now...I'm not even done venting but i'll spare you all...i'm going to look for an apple employee to beat up!!!

      A. WE DO NOT allow links to 3.0 downloads. DO NOT ask. Any posting there of after this will result in warnings, infractions.

      B. This is NOT a 3.0 installation/blah blah thread. Dont turn it into one. We already have several.

      ok that was fast... didn't work for me. Said my iphone could not be restored. I'm guessing that's because my iPhone isn't registered? Restoring 2.2.1 now.
