The iPhone Operating System 3.0 Update

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Mon, Jun 29, 2009

With the release of the iPhone Operating System (OS) 3.0 Update on June 17th, along with the release of the new iPhone 3G S on June 19th, this month has been quite an exciting one for iPhone owners. For now, my “old” 3G iPhone feels almost new with all the upgraded capabilities the update has added. Here is a list of  the new features I love the most:

1) You can now copy and paste words in text messages, the Web, contact book, and endless other programs - making it easier to do things such as input addresses into the map from your email and text messages.

2) You can now pick and choose which specific text messages you want to delete from your text log, rather than having to clear the entire conversation.

3) From your homepage, if you press the home button, you will be taken to another screen called “Spotlight” that allows you to search your entire iPhone for names, songs, programs, etc. without having to go through lists and unnecessary taps.

4) You can finally flip your phone to the side and send text messages quicker than ever before using BOTH hands instead of only your index finger.

I have only mentioned a few of the many value-added features of the new OS 3.0 update for the iPhone. What are you waiting for? Upgrade today at http://www.apple.com/iphone/softwareupdate/!
