  • 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.

      Exchange Accounts - Yes

      NOTE: The Pre (and Blackberries) CAN do Gmail push because when you add a mail account on those phones, you're giving their mail servers the info. These mail servers keep your mail accounts updated constantly and push any emails your way the second they receive something, regardless of who the email provider is.
      And a GMail account on your iPhone as an exchange account, like we can do now?

      It was in this thread, about 4 or 5 pages back i think, some guy on O2 couldnt activate his iPhone after using the 3.0 GM build. But since my post some people have posted conflicting results so possibly not. My dad uses the simplicity tariff so when the jailbreaks available ill first try a simple restore for him and see if it works. Would be really bad if this where the case.

      However, after restoring to the 3.0 GM build my iPhone restarted, booted to the Apple logo and then done the loading bar again real quick, then rebooted again. It definetly didnt do this on any 1.x or 2.x and im pretty sure it didnt do it for the betas? Is it just the .ipcc file being updated?

      To the other guy who is using the 3.0 GM build, you wont need to downgrade to 2.2.1 on the 17th. If the build released is any different to this GM build, which i very much doubt it will be, then you will just need to update/restore straight to the new build.

      And on a completely different note, my home buttons been broken for about 3 weeks and i replaced it today. try using 3.0 UNjailbroken with no home button. Every time i want to exit messages/phone book/ipod i have to restart the phone. Sux.

      Okay I just bit the bullet and installed 3.0GM along with the .ipcc from SB's signature(thank you). Everything is great and like the person said earlier, I had SwirlyMMS for about 6 months working flawlessly, I installed the AT&T .ipcc and rebooted checked the message screen and had the camera. I took a picture and sent it as a test and it worked perfectly.

      You can't do this. I'd love to be proven wrong.

      Ahhhh my bad,

      Calendar & Contacts Sync : Set Up Your iPhone or iPod Touch - Mobile Help

      doesn't include Mail, obviously, because that would hurt Apples MobileMe sales, and as Google and Apple stroke eachothers scrotums, this would not happen, would it?!

      And after reading up a bit, IMAP still fetches, just 'syncs' the read messages when fetching aswell. Sux.

      BUT, Yahoo supports push mail on iPhone and is free?

      okay another update, Everything seemed to be fine until I went to download an app from the appstore. I downloaded one app then all of a sudden it tells me cannot connect to itunes store. Im looking into it and will report back if I find a fix.

      I took a leap of faith and installed 3.0 onto my 2g att jailbroken phone. Everything is great and working fine...and still jailbroken! Although I cant tether and no MMS :-( Anyway to get MMS without the whole removing of the simcard..ect? I have AT&T Carrier 5 Or is it true that MMS is not supported on the 2g iPhones. In that case...I must wait to buy a 3GS. I hope the prices arent true....$799 for a 32gb phone is INSANE!

      EDIT:
      SWEET!! $299 to upgrade to a 32gb iPhone 3GS. Just went through Apple.com

      Maybe I'm overlooking something, but won't you need the home button to Jailbreak it? Don't you need to hold home for the jailbreak program to detect the iPhone?

      Exactly! Thats why i am so happy i managed to replace it today! With SBSettings there is a close app widget, ive been using that for ages. Restored to 3.0 and THEN remembered about the home button. Big d'oh. And didnt want the effort of downgrading.

      Fixed now though

      If you didn't have SwirlyMMS sending and receiving before the 3.0 update, then its still not going to work. AT&T has to enable it, good luck trying.

      I'm on AT&T and my MMS works without changing anything also but I also had it working before with SwirlyMMS. That is why mine works.

      So you just installed the 3.0 GM and MMS was working?

      yeah. i looked into all the gmail push thing and it doesnt work.

      when you add the accounts under your settings on the phone it actually tells you the options for either fetch or push.

      i have hotmail, gmail, yahoo and now a shiny new mobile me account and after looking through them only yahoo and mobile me have the push settings.

      it was a pain to go to mobile me after having my hotmail for a good few years but after syncing everything and using idisk on my mac i think it's a great thing.

      i can also stop paying for webspace from my other providers so it's not just a mail thing.

      i'm not even bothered about the new phone, i'll wait another year no problem, especially if i have to sign a new contract in january and then be stuck with the 3gs until july 2011!!!!

      anyone figured out how to use autofill yet??

      yea but I had to download the ipcc file so that mms and tethering would be in the 3.0 update. Apple didn't include it with the new update. Other than that, MMS and tehering works

      well I turned it on and it ask me do I want to save the user name and password when I logged into my online account. I did so now when I go to that website, it auto fill my info in.
