Sneak peek at iPhone 3.0

Tech Industry
[ Music ] >> Molly Wood: Hi. I'm Molly Wood from CNET.com here in Cupertino, California at Apple headquarters. Apple has just given us a sneak peek at iPhone 3.0, the next version of the iPhone's operating system. >> Cut, copy, and paste. >> Molly Wood: First, the big news. iPhone 3.0 will have copy and paste. Really, really fancy copy and paste, in fact. >> You double tap onto the text, and it automatically selects that text. You can see it puts these little grab points at the end of the selection, and it automatically puts this cut, copy, paste bubble directly above your current selection. Now, let's say that I didn't mean to paste that, or I typed something I didn't mean to. Well, [pause] all you have to do is shake to undo. [ applause ] >> Molly Wood: Actually, Apple showed off several features that were on the top of the wish list for users, namely multi-media messaging, finally, and the ability to use a landscape keyboard in all the built-in iPhone apps. >> So we're adding search - >> Molly Wood: In addition, iPhone 3.0 will feature search across all the built-in apps including mail and calendar which will make the phone a lot more business friendly, and there's an all-new system-wide search called Spotlight, of course, that searches everything on the phone from applications to mail to contacts to music. >> Now, go ahead and search for, let's say Tim. T-I-M. So if I tap here on Tim Young, it takes me directly to that contact inside of the phone application, and from there, you can dial him - >> Molly Wood: For developers, Apple announced that you can build in micropayments. So you can buy an application like the SIMS 3 from EA, and then within the game, buy add-ons with just a few taps. >> Now, here you see the indicator for InAppCommerce [assumed spelling], so we're going to go ahead and purchase that. >> Molly Wood: Apple also finally rolled out push notification. So apps like instant messengers or even sports alerts from ESPN can be automatically pushed to your phone. >> And as you can see, I just got a push notification from my girlfriend, and she's asking if I can grab milk on the way home. >> Molly Wood: The new developer kit also features hardware communication, P-to-P networking for sharing files or multi-player gaming, and much more - [ Music ] [ applause ] >> Molly Wood: So what's missing? >> I think we were really hoping for tethering, and a lot of the rumors said that we were going to get that. That's not the case. In the Q&A afterwards, they did say, well, they're working on it. They did kind of hint at that. I would really like to see flash. I would really like to see voice styling that's not through an app. You know, our apps are likely to do that, but I don't think we should have to pay for that feature. I'd really like to see this stuff on the phone [inaudible]. >> Molly Wood: Apple says the new software will be free for iPhone users when it comes out sometime this summer, but iPod Touch owners will have to pay $9.95.
