Ending months of continuous speculation, Apple, the maker of the hugely popular iPhone has finally come out with the third OS instalment for the iPhone. The popular features like MMS, SMS forwarding and others that were sorely missed in the previous versions, have finally made appearance in the latest iPhone software release. These and hundred other features have been provided by Apple to regain the upper hand in the cutthroat mobile touch screen market.
iPhone users can now cut, copy and paste text from one iPhone app to another, a handy feature that was unduly missing previously. Many including Mike McGuire, a Gartner Inc analyst, were pleasantly surprised and said, "Frankly, I wasn't sure we would ever see cut and paste." But in spite of the all round jubilation, first generation iPhone user's still won't be able to send MMS as the original iPhone lacks the requisite hardware support.
Apple has also added Spotlight, a device search similar to that on the Mac, to scourge all the Apple-built apps on the iPhone. You can now even access your mail, notes and calendar in the landscape mode when you flip the device sideways. All these latest developments are music for the ears of the large iPhone developer community for whom Apple has released many new tools, including more than a thousand new Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). So go ahead, and download the new iPhone 3.0 update, if you haven't already.
