At a special media event tomorrow Apple will be announcing details of iPhone update v3.

 

Speculation and rumors are rife.

 

What do you think we'll see?

 

Will Palm be rolled?

 

Stay tuned, one more sleep

Apparently we'll see Copy/Paste added, but no background apps.

 

It'll certainly be interesting to see what they do. Tethering maybe?

 

Either way, they've got competition in the Pre, so here's hoping they respond to it they way they should: one-upping them! :)

It's tomorrow?!?! I thought it was a further away. I guess I should pay more attention to my feeds lol.

 

Copy/Paste should be high on the list. Although, my E71 has it I'll be damned if I know how to use it (or ever needed it).

I'd like to see better bluetooth implementation, being able to send files or A2DP to my car stereo would be nice.

I'd love some direct integration for sync etc with gmail/gcal.

Background apps would be nice.

Aww, and I've only been using the iPhone 3G for two weeks :(

 

Rob.

It seems to be an OS upgrade, not a hardware upgrade.

"Oh, and one more thing..."

 

:P

 

 

 

Although you're probably right. New hardware wouldn't be until later in the year, unless they're pushing it out the door before the Pre to snap up contract renewals.

Touche, I didn't read it very well :P

 

Still, bugger, I just jailbroke my iPhone, and yellowsn0w isn't even available for 2.2.1 yet :P Although, on that, with any luck it won't be a baseband update.

Just get your provider to unlock it.

 

yellowsn0w is a pile of unnecessary pain in this country.

I am by no means afraid of a CLI :P QuickPwn works amazingly well though.

Telstra want $150. Can't quite justify that. So I'm sticking with Telstra and missing out on the much cheaper data that 3 offers :P

$150? Sounds about right ... for Telstra's usual (non)excellent value for money pricing.

Eight and a half more hours.

 

The SDK should come out first, I hope we don't have to wait too long for the update, hardware should come out as the original iPhone owners start coming off contract.

 

btw Wifi sucks balls when you're shaped to 64k!

 

Damn kid's as if 80GB isn't enough!

So in reality, a lot of shit that should have been there to begin with.

Still, it sounds awesomely comprehensive.

 

Don't like this though:

Dude, seriously. I had planned on coming in to this thread and congratulating Apple for a job well done [finally]. But you are really annoying when it comes to pushing your phone.

The one you should have had to begin with.

 

The Bonjour P2P thing is stupid tho', why didn't they just use Bluetooth? My old Nokia used to do multiplayer via bluetooth..

 

Sorry, I stand corrected there. There has never been any cross-platform multiplayer anyway, so no real downside there.

 

 

Either way, it's good to see the iPhone has caught up. Now to see what the manufacturers do, as there is no excuse not to innovate in the UI factors, now that the iPhone is on a feature-par [for the most part].

Peer to Peer Connectivity

Add multi-player capabilities to your games using the peer to peer network connectivity and in game voice communication features of Game Kit. This powerful new framework allows any application, not just games, to communicate between devices using Bluetooth-no pairing required.

Dang, missed this thread. I'll c&p what I had in my *other* thread.

 

Apple is touting "100 new feature for users, 1,000 new APIs for developers" and they've managed to put in damn near everything people have been asking for ever since the device has been released.

 

Ars Technica has a nice run-down on what's what, but briefly:

 

  • Copy/Paste is in
  • MMS is in
  • Dev Access to Calendar is in
  • Landscape email (and whatever else) is in
  • Tethering support is included, up to providers to allow it
  • Push notification is in
  • NO flash
  • NO video recording

The update really is a lot more than that though, so go have a look if you've got an iPhone or are interested. There should be some interesting apps coming out in the months after this launches (some time in summer) that'll be worth keeping an eye one. One API of particular interest allows P2P support via Bluetooth. The idea is that this will allow multiplayer gaming (as an example) without needing to set up a network, but when asked whether users would be able to swap, say, music...

 

the group remained stumped for a moment before [Apple Executive] Forstall answered, "I think probably not -- you couldn't move the file."

 

"We have the ability to stream music to music apps, and certainly a game, if a game has music in the game it would be possible to download game tracks, but if would be confusing for other music apps with downloadable music that isn’t through the app store."

 

Which, frankly, sounds like a yes to me, although it'd likely require a jailbroken phone -- can't really see the App Store approving "Bluetorrent".
