You can also selectively delete individual messages.

3. Shake to undo and redo typing


No matter what application you are using, you can undo typing by shaking your iPhone. If you want your text back, simply shake again.

If you had something else written before you started writing the sentence you chose to undo, it reverts back to that. If this was the first thing you wrote, it simply erases it.

This feature is pretty self-explanatory, but is really great – especially for working out. Imagine you’re running or working out in the gym, and you’re iPhone’s iPod is in shuffle mode. Some mellow, non-workout-appropriate Coldplay song comes on. You have to get your iPhone out of your pocket and press next with your sweaty finger.

With this update, you can keep your iPhone in your pocket (or strapped to your arm if you have an iPhone arm band) and just give it a quick jiggle.

If you are in a specific album or playlist, it shuffles within that album or playlist. If not, it just picks a random song out of your whole library.


5. Copy/Cut/Paste

The basic copy/cut/paste feature allows users to select, copy or cut, and paste text from and to anywhere on the iPhone. In other words, you can copy text from an app or a Safari web page, and paste it into Notes or Email – it works everywhere.

6. MMS


MMS (picture/audio/video messaging) is not yet available for AT&T customers. AT&T is still working on preparing things on their end for iPhone users to MMS. AT&T also announced that MMS will not cost extra money, and will be treated as a regular SMS message financially. Anything video related is for iPhone 3G S only.

7. Landscape Keyboard


The landscape keyboard was previously only available for Safari. With iPhone OS 3.0, you can use it in essentially all “typing” programs, including Notes, Mail, and Messages. The bigger keyboard is extremely convenient for typing and decreases typos exponentially.

  • Notes:

8. Double click home button


In the previous iPhone operating systems, we had the option to double click the home button to access “Favorites”, and to access iPod controls if music was already playing. Now you can access the Spotlight Search or the Camera by double clicking the home button.

By creating a contact for yourself, the iPhone can automatically fill out any registration form with the credentials you enter. It can also auto-fill username and passwords based on what you previously entered into that site.

How it works:

  • Since there are some security issues that may concern you, this feature must be turned on manually.
  • Go to Settings
  • Go to Safari
  • Go to Autofill
  • Choose the contact you created for yourself

12. Type new message while previous is still sending

If you already have 3.0, you probably noticed that when you send a text message, the progress bar is now at the top. The reason for this relocation is so that you can start typing a message while the previous one is still sending. Notice the “Sending…” bar at the top.

This new native application records audio and allows you to edit and share it. Once MMS becomes available, voice memos will be shareable via text message (which is kinda like leaving a voicemail without calling.)

How it works:

  • Once audio is recorded, tap the button on the right to access previous recordings
  • Email (or MMS when available) by tapping share
  • Tap the blue arrow to view more options
  • Edit the audio by tapping “Trim”

15. YouTube


iPhone OS 3.0 brings a fully functional version of YouTube to your iPhone.

16. Safari


There are no significant changes in the Safari browser that revolutionize the iPhone’s web browsing experience, but there are some little changes. Most importantly, there are significantly fewer crashes. Everyone has experienced the painful and irritating process of waiting for large page to load only to have the screen go black for a second and have the home screen reappear. The stability of Safari has been greatly improved in 3.0.

Also, you can now close out of a “single page” in the “Tab View” of the Safari (the view where you can toggle between different open pages). Before, if you wanted to get rid of the last page you had opened, you had to go into “Tab View”, press “New Page”, go back into “Tab View” and then exit out of the first page.

Now you can immediately tap the red “X” on the left corner of the page and have a new fresh page appear. The purpose of this is for added convenience in deleting history.

Other additions to Safari include auto-fill, and holding a link to copy/open in new page (both previously mentioned).

17. Moving app across pages


Apple has finally realized the small but irritating mistake they made about relocating applications. If you’ve ever tried to move an app across a few pages, you probably noticed that it messes up the order of apps on the pages you pass, leaving blank spaces and shifting things around.

With iPhone OS 3.0, simply drag the application to the right or left corner of the page, and hold it there. The pages will keep flipping. When you’ve arrived to the page you want to add the app to, just move the app away from the corner. Everything remains in tact, and no blank spaces are added. Way to go Apple!

18. Parental Controls


Since there are more things you can do on the iPhone 3.0, there are more parental control. Since movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks are now available for direct download, there are options to control the content of all of these.

What you can restrict:

  • Safari
  • YouTube
  • iTunes
  • Installing Apps
  • Camera
  • Location
  • In-App Purchases
  • Explicit lyrics in music and podcasts
  • Movies by rating (R, PG-13, etc…) or movies in general
  • TV by rating (TV-MA, TV-14, etc…) or TV in general
  • Apps by rating (17+, 12+, etc…) or Apps in general

  • Press “Share Contact”
  • The info is attached to the email as a “.vcf” file

20. New App Store View


The general structure of the App Store on the iPhone 3.0 is the same as before, but you can now flip through screenshots of the application right there on the page without having to open it separately and let it load.

How it works:

  • Go to Inbox, Drafts, Sent Mail, or Trash
  • Scroll up to the top
  • Select whether to search in “From”, “To”, “Subject”, or “All”
  • Search away!

Most importantly, this will allow third party game developers to integrate accessories into their games. For example, they could create some sort of controller or joystick.

27. Turn By Turn Navigation


Developers will now be able to implement full turn-by-turn navigation into their applications. While they should’ve been able to do this before, there was a strange legal clause written by able prohibitting them from creating turn-by-turn apps. Well, that clause is no more.

TomTom, the famous GPS company, presented their app at the WWDC, and it looks great. They even created a car attachment kit (that charges your iPhone too.) Check out the video they created:


 

28. Tethering


Internet tethering will allow you to access the iPhone’s 3G internet connection on your laptop by using the iPhone as a “modem”. It will work through bluetooth and USB.

The tethering feature is not yet ready in the US because AT&T is still working on getting things working. Apple said it should be ready to go by the end of summer.

Tethering will only work with the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3G S. No older models.

    • Use Network Control Panel to select and configure the iPhone connection

29. In App Purchasing

With “In-app Purchasing” developers can sell additional content from within applications. For example, an eBook application can have a bunch of books displayed, and allow you to purchase whichever one you’d like right from within the app. You would also be able to purchase additional levels and such for games.


30. Peer-to-Peer Connectivity


You will be able to find other devices running the same app as you via Bonjour over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Imagine you are sitting in an airport, and you want to play chess. You open the chess game, find another user, and have a real-live chess game with some other iPhone user in the airport. Peer-to-Peer connectivity will also be used to allow some data sharing in applications.

31. Find My iPhone and Remote Wipe (Mobile Me Users Only) (New)

MobileMe users will never have to worry about losing their iPhone again (sorta), because they can now receive the exact coordinates of the location of their iPhone. You even get directions to your lost iPhone (half the time it will lead you to your couch).

Remote Wipe allows you to erase all of the information on your iPhone with a click of a button in iTunes. If your iPhone is lost, and you’re a Mobile Me user, you should immediately wipe your iPhone clear of data. Just think of all the usernames, passwords, emails, and other private info that an iPhone thief can access.


32. Force Quit An Application

This process forces a frozen application (or just a frozen iPhone) to go back to the home screen. Most times the iPhone returns to the home screen automatically. If it doesn’t, here what you can do:

  • Hold down the power and home button until “Slide to Turn Off” appears
  • Let go of both buttons
  • Press and hold ONLY the home button for 5-6 seconds

33. Retry failed text message (exclamation point next to text)


When a text message does not go through to the recipient, it is tagged with a red exclamation point and you now have the option to click retry.


34. Movies, TV Shows, Podcasts, and Audiobooks downloadable over 3G (no size max)


The iPhone’s iTunes store can now access movies, TV shows, podcasts, and music videos. Any file can be purchased and downloaded directly through the iPhone even without a WiFi connection.

Remember parents, new movies cost 15$ a pop so you better use parental controls if your kid has an iPhone or iPod Touch.

35. Playback audiobooks in variable speeds


For those of you who are speed-readers (or speed-listeners) you can now increase the speed at which an audiobook is played on your iPhone to get done with the book quicker.

36. Calls from non-contacts include city and state of origin (or city and country)


All phone calls from numbers that are not saved in your address book will show the city and state (or city and country) to give you a general idea where the call came from. This will be shown in “Recents” and in “Voicemail” directly under the phone number.

37. Swipe to delete note in Notes


It was probably carelessness that led to this feature being absent in the first place, because you can delete text messages and emails this way. Simply swipe across a note in “Notes” to delete it.

38. Album Art Displayed While Charging (instead of battery logo)


Part of the iPhone’s appeal is it’s attractive design, and when you’re having a party, you want things to look good. If you have an iPod Dock that plays iPhone music and charges it at the same time, you might have noticed that the stylish album artwork disappears, and the green/red battery logo appears.

Now, with 3.0, even if the phone is charging, the display will continue to show the album artwork.

39. App Counter


If you’ve ever gotten into a competition with your friends about who has more apps (I’ll challenge anybody), or if you’re just curious, the iPhone now counts your applications.

How it works:

  • Go to Settings
  • Go to General
  • Go to About
  • The 5th item down “Applications” tells you how many you’ve got
