Apple iPhone and iPod Touch OS 3.0 Upgrade
On June 17, the Apple iPhone OS (operating system) 3.0 upgrade will be released by Apple. I've heard that the OS has leaked out on various torrent sites, but I haven't looked. This upgrade will also be available for iPod touch users, but it won't be free. It's $9.95 for iPod touch users. It's free for iPhone users.
Many of the features in 3.0 have been available to users who have hacked (jailbreak) their iPhones. Tethering may be one of the most practical feature for users who travel with their laptops. For iPod touch users, the improvements to Safari may be worth the $9.95 if you do a lot of mobile browsing. Those improvements are described as, "Enjoy faster performance, autofill user names and passwords, and more."
