With the iPhone 2.0 Software Update, your iPhone will do even more. Extend its capabilities with innovative applications you download directly from the new App Store. Get push email, calendar, and contacts from your Microsoft Exchange server at work. And use great new features in Mail, Contacts, and other applications. Free in the next update.

Applications for iPhone
iPhone applications are unlike anything you?ve ever seen on a mobile phone. That?s because they leverage all the groundbreaking technologies in iPhone ? like the accelerometer, Multi-Touch, 3D positional sound, and GPS. And they?re only a tap away at the App Store.

iPhone in Enterprise
With support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, iPhone 3G delivers push email, calendar, and contacts. And it uses enterprise-grade networking with Cisco IPSec VPN and WPA2 Enterprise support. So now the most revolutionary mobile device ever is also the ideal phone for business.

MobileMe Support
With a MobileMe subscription, all your information stays up to date everywhere. Get push email, calendar, and contacts on your iPhone and any computer. Changes you make on one device are pushed to the MobileMe ?cloud,? then back to every device you use. Automatically.

Better Email Management
Now it?s even easier to keep your inbox organized. The latest iPhone update adds support for mass email move and delete. So you can delete many messages at once and organize groups of messages by moving them into different mail folders.

Contacts Search
Have a lot of names in your address book? Type a name into the new Contacts search field and iPhone shows you matching names. If you use iPhone with Microsoft Exchange, you can even look up contacts in your company?s Global Address List (GAL).

Additional Languages
iPhone now offers complete language and dictionary support for English (U.S.), English (UK), French (France), French (Canada), German, Japanese, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese (Portugal), Portuguese (Brazil), Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, Korean (no dictionary), Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Russian, and Polish.
