On Tuesday, Apple gave a preview of what new features can be expected in their latest software (v3.0) for the iPhone. The event was a mix between features for end users and also for developers. Apple said the latest Software Development Kit (SDK) includes over 1000 new API’s and over 100 new features. v3.0 will be released later this summer (June/July) which is exactly two years from the launch of the iPhone in June 2007. It’s a bit sad that some of basic features in a USD 30 phone are finally arriving such as ability to forward an SMS. Below is my wish list, items crossed off are coming in 3.0.
- Smart groups in contacts
- Export Business cards
- Implement copy and paste
- Notes program syncs to computer
- iCal to-do list syncs to iPhone
- Play DivX files
- Forward SMS’s
- Multiple signatures for different mail accounts
Check out Terry White’s massive wish list, it seems Apple still has a long way to go.
