We know a new version of iPhone software is coming soon and we have some new details on what that may include. These features are still rumors, but we would think very likely for a revamp of the software that reside on the iPhone. The first is MMS or Multi Messaging Service, which would finally allow for photos to be sent via SMS, just like every other phone out there. The second feature we have heard is tethering of which most of know what that is all about, but if you don’t, it allows you to conect your iPhone to your laptop and use its 3G connection. Thirdly, the illustrious copy and paste may be upon us and avilable with this software release.
Among these three different upgrades John Gruber had something interesting to say about the new software as well.
"First, a new home screen app (a.k.a. SpringBoard), designed from the ground up for a system where users have a few dozen or more extra apps installed. Managing dozens of apps on the iPhone today is simply a pain in the ass. Second, maybe an answer to the question of where the background notification API is you know, the one we were told at WWDC to expect a few months ago, but which we havent heard a word about since. And maybe pretty please, Mr. Forstall, with sugar on top copy and paste."
All of this information about the new 3.0 software seems plausible and if it does come to fruition, it would make a very many people, very happy.
