    Apple's announcing the latest BIG upgrade to the iPhone OS. Some pretty cool upgrades to the applications/app store and the big news...COPY AND PASTE!

    This is, of course, for those of us who decided to follow the rules and not jailbreak our phones. [​IMG]

    Wow, copy & paste. What is next, video? Decent camera lens? Ohhhh, I know, a file manager or a way to organise & customise a slew of icons! These phones are getting so impressive!

    Err, you probably have not seen what results good phone camera lens can produce.

    This announcement made the difference between buying an iPhone and a Blackberry for me.

    Copy and paste is pretty sweet. I was just doing something on my iphone yesterday where I wished I had that function.

    If they can somehow get a flash player, that would be awesome.

    past upgrades have just required a sync.

    ^^^ yea that's what I figure, but since this upgrade seems "bigger" I would have assumed it costing something thru the iTunes store

    safe assumption based on apple's history but i would guess that it's a free upgrade. the 2.0 was a major jump and was free.

    It is free for all iPhone owners and it will be released in June. It will cost 10 bucks for iPod Touch owners.

    Most of those pictures are incredibly small. If thats the best an iPhone can do, then it doesn't impress me.

    Ugh, now I have to un-jailbreak my phone, save my settings, upgrade, re-jailbreak, and load my old shit. What a hassle. Apple is a pretty fucking Nazi-like company.

    It's still better than a Blackberry though.

    You can tell they're starting to push the original iPhone owners into purchasing the 3G version.

    There will be no MMS capabilities on the original iPhone. I don't send stupid picture texts back and forth, so it doesn't bother me at all.
