Apple iPhone OS 3.0 software updates now available

Apple has launched the latest version of its iPhone software and Software Developer Kit (SDK), available for download from today.

The updates include a variety of user interface improvements and developer tools that provide applications with deeper access to the iPhone hardware.

iPhone OS 3.0 will be available today and tomorrow in some parts of Asia-Pacific, free to existing iPhone owners and a $9.95 upgrade for iPod Touch owners.

Tim Renowden, analyst at advisory and consulting firm Ovum, said the software updates will enhance the user experience with new features including: the ability to copy and paste, send and receive multimedia messages; Spotlight (searching the contents of the iPhone); improved online Calendar support tethering to allow use of the iPhone as a cellular modem (subject to network operator approval) and push technology allowing applications to alert users when a message or event is received. Apple has also improved the consistency of its user interface, adding a landscape-format on-screen keyboard across all core applications.
