News about iphone 3.0

  • Apple iPhone 3G S takes aim at... the Flip?

    Along with a storage boost, a digital compass, purportedly faster connection speeds, and the iPhone 3.0 operating system, the just-announced Apple iPhone 3GS will add a slew of new imaging and video features that should have pocket-camcorder manufacturers feeling nervous.

  • Apple unveils 'iPhone 3GS'; goes on sale June 19

    Apple today took the wraps off the company's next iPhone, the 'iPhone 3GS,' saying it is two to three times faster that current models, offers digital video capabilities in its new camera and will go on sale June 19 in the U.S.

  • No tablet, no cheap iPhones from Apple at WWDC, say analysts

    With just days to go before Apple executives take the stage at the company's annual developer conference, the rumor mill has gone into its usual last-minute overdrive, with speculation about everything from $99 iPhones to an appearance by CEO Steve Jobs serving as grist for the Apple mill.

  • Pre is not the home run Palm needed

    Someone at Palm should probably be kicking themselves: The first reviews of its much-hyped Palm Pre aren't bad, but they are not incredibly good, either. This sets a pretty low bar for what coming competitors must achieve to appear more advanced than Palm's newest device.

  • iPhone may get radio tagging and Nike+

    More clues have been discovered about the goodies in store for iPhone OS 3.0 and rumored new iPhone devices. In the recently-released iTunes 8.2 software references are made to radio tagging songs for later purchase on the iTunes Store, as well as Nike+ and VoiceOver functionality that could be designed for the iPhone, according to Apple Insider. While these features on the iPhone would make a lot of sense, there's no way to know for sure the iPhone is the target product. The radio tagging, as AI points out, could be nothing more than an improved way to use the iTunes radio feature or a method for allowing peripheral radio transmitters to interact with the iPhone.

  • Palm's Pre: More (and less) than an iPhone

    It will be interesting to see how Apple reacts to news that Palm's Pre knows how to interact with iTunes. While not a business feature, iTunes support would make buying or switching to the Pre much easier for millions of the iTunes faithful.

  • 32GB iPhone looking more likely

    New iPhone rumors out Tuesday come very close to confirming the existence of a 32GB iPhone, and even resurrect the possibility of a US$99 iPhone from Apple.

  • Apple orders developers to comply with iPhone OS 3.0

    Apple yesterday warned iPhone application developers that all apps submitted for iTunes App Store approval must be compliant with iPhone OS 3.0.

Cupertino said it may also remove any apps currently in the App Store if they do not work on the iPhone's new operating system.

  • Latest iPhone 3.0 Beta Reveals Parental Controls

    Developers got an unexpected surprise yesterday after Apple released a new beta of the iPhone OS 3.0 and a second version of iTunes 8.2. This release comes just eight days after Apple released 3.0 beta 4 and the first public version of iTunes 8.2. Apple's typical release schedule for new 3.0 beta versions has been about two weeks. If beta 5's availability signals a faster release schedule, then a near-final version of iPhone OS 3.0 may be just around the corner. That would make sense since it's barely over a month until Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco where 3.0 is expected to make its debut.

  • 'Leaked' iPhone 3.0 Screens Appear Online
