First things first! On June 17, 2009 Apple will be releasing the iPhone OS 3.0 update through iTunes. This is happening just in time to compete with the Palm Pre webOS. iPhone OS 3.0 includes a lot of important updates including spotlight search, cut/copy/paste within apps, tethering, in-app purchases, landscape mode for native apps, and a whole lot more. One feature which I was really hoping for was multi-tasking, but Apple did not add this. I do think Apple may add it in the future, they want to implement it properly just like they did with copy and paste. It's definitely worth the upgrade! Unfortunately for us iPod Touch owners, the upgrade will cost $9.95 while all iPhone owners will be able to upgrade to iPhone 3.0 for free. Even with this fee, I'd say it's worth it.
