    Default iPhone Patent Lays Out Possible New Features
    Aidan Malley at AppleInsider dug up and dug through a recent Apple iPhone patent that describes many possible future features for the iPhone. Including many that we are already expecting in the 3g iPhone expected to be announced by Mr. Jobs on June 9th.



    If you want to know what else is in store for the future of the iPhone take a flip through the 371 page patent here. You will recognize every feature of the iPhone you currently know and love, but with enough digging you'll stumble upon some interesting ones.

    Lucky for us Aidan already did! Of course Apple has no obligation to include all these neat new features, but if they want to nothing is going to stop them. We hope to see many of these in 3g iPhone release.

    Possible features that would probably implemented on the original iPhone via a firmware update (if implemented at all of course):
    • Instant Messaging
    • Flash and Quicktime in Safari
    • A blogging client
    • Java software downloads
    • MMS messaging
    • Voice activated commands
    • Voice Recording

    Hardware changes expected for the 3g iPhone:
    • GPS module with geo-tagging
    • Optical sensor for videoconferencing

    I hope this comes out on the 9th because I'm selling my phone this weekend!

    Can't wait to see some of these new features, Is a Video Recorder also going to be added?

    How does a patent show these features? Or is it just wishful thinking?

    @iPhoneMadness -> And anyone else interested. Flick through the patent if you don't believe it... the link is there to the full thing...

    Hmm, I've been thinking... The picture on the right is an image of the iPhone running the Safari app... The add bookmark button is in the top left like in the old Safari (per 1.1.3). Its in the centre on the bottom bar in the post 1.1.3 version of Safari. It sparks questions in my mind...

    what? optical sensor for videoconferencing? Isn't the optical sensor just for automatic brightness adjustment?

    I didn't say I didn't believe it, I was just wondering how all that is interpreted from the Patent.

    It made more sense after I read threw it a bit.
