Yes, it’s official. The new firmware, OS 3.0, will be available for the iPhone and iPod Touch from June 17th.
As predicted, iPod Touch users will have to pay for the privilege ($9.95 to be precise, UK price unknown at time of writing). iPhone users will get it free.
Hot picks for OS 3.0 are:
- You can download and rent movies direct from the iPhone/iPod
I don’t think the OS 3.0 will be anything massive, but it will definately be worth the update. I shall be purchasing the update when it is launched.
Wikipedia actually has quite a good entry on what’s to come in OS 3.0, with lots of detail if that’s the kind of thing you’re interested in. Here is the link – just scroll to the 3.0 section in turquoise.
