Apple releases iPhone OS 3 beta 3 to developers

Apple has released iPhone OS 3 beta 3 to developers this week, and numerous new features are appearing in the latest beta release.

Apple's engineering department still isn't sparing the horses for iPhone OS 3.0. It has released beta 3 to developers only two weeks after beta 2 was released.

Like most Apple updates, we suspect that the new beta 3 includes several stability and performance enhancements that might make the beta more pleasing to use, if you are testing it.

We've heard from some early beta testers complaining (see article comments) about the number of issues they were experiencing with the previous releases.

It is too early to tell what kinds of changes have been made in beta 3, but we suspect that it will not take long for people to discover them.

CNET had additional coverage about iPhone OS 3.0 here, here, here, and here.

World of Apple has republished the seed notes for the iPhone Beta 3 SDK, listing changes made to various components, such as Xcode, Interface Builder, and Dashcode.

Developers and beta testers, let us know about your experiences with this latest iPhone OS 3.0 beta in the comments.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
