iPhone OS 3.0 Software Update Available Now
      #33490 - 06/17/09 05:34 PM

If you use an iPhone or iPod touch, you should plug into your iTunes and get Apple's latest iPhone OS 3.0 software update. This free update offers some great new features and updates to existing features.

We tested the Bluetooth A2DP with the Samsung SBH-500 Bluetooth stereo headset, the sound quality was really good. Note: Turn down the volume on both the iPhone and the headset first, because there is not automatic volume adjustment here. Might blast your ears out.

Here is more info on the new iPhone OS 3.0 update:

"iPhone OS 3.0 also lets you run the next generation of iPhone apps, like peer-to-peer games and more. If you?ve never updated before, now is the perfect time.

Cut, Copy & Paste
Quickly and easily cut, copy, and paste text from application to application. Select entire blocks of web text with a tap. Copy and paste images from the web, too.

Landscape Keyboard
Want more room to type? Rotate iPhone to landscape to use a larger keyboard in Mail, Messages, Notes, and Safari.

Send MMS messages and include video, photos, audio, and contact info. Even tap to snap a picture or shoot a video right inside Messages. (MMS support from AT&T coming in late summer.)

Spotlight Search
Find what you?re looking for across your iPhone, all from one place. Spotlight searches all of your contacts, email, calendars, and notes, as well as everything in your iPod.

Watch out for that A2DP volume. We tested the iPhone running 3.0 with the Samsung SBH500 over-the-ear Bluetooth stereo headset and nearly blew our ears off. Seriously, the sound filled the room it was so loud!
