  • 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.

      Now I just need to wait for all my favorite jailbroken apps and hacks to be compatible again. Hopefully they will be.

      Doing a final sync before the update. I would have posted this 10 mins ago but the stupid site (why is this place so annoying slow??) went down, presumably because hundreds of people were trying to get in with their "w00t first" comments

      Thanks - it still shows no update here in the UK. But that direct link was still very slow - it took over 4 minutes to download!

      Now I have to wait for UltraSn0w

      My phone is jailbroken. When I update, I will lose all of my programs and any data associated with them, right?

      You will lose all your cydia apps as, I believe, APTBackup does not work with 3.o, but not your App store apps as they will be backed up and restored.

      Do you guys use itunes backups with a jailbroken device? I remember back on like 1.1.4 that everyone said don't restore an itunes backup, and i did it once and it made my iphone really sluggish.

      Haven't tried that shake to shuffle, I have to sync my music when I get home. But the Global search, contact search and e-mail search are all there.

      Nav is going to be a 3rd party app, not an apple app.

      I really like the landscape on E-Mail, that's pretty pimp.. haven't tried the browsing yet but it's supposed to be better.
