    So you can see lots of feature i want to discuss some new
    feature that looks great on os 3.0.

New Applications:
Spotlight

Let’s start with Spotlight. Spotlight is a technique which
has been in Tiger Mac OS X operating system and now in the iPhone OS3.0.
Spotlight is a service that searches your entire system. So your calendar,
address book, e-mail, iTunes, basically everything.
Spotlight on the iPhone works very smoothly. Once you start
typing your query, the results already appear. You do not have to wait for
something to find. Spotlight is a separate screen that you can reach easily from
your home screen. All you have to do is navigate to the left.

List of exactly what it
searches:

Applications: each application’s name

Calendar: event titles, locations, and invitees
Contacts: each contact’s first, last, and company names
iPod: the names of songs, artists, and albums for music
tracks, as well as the titles of audiobooks, podcasts, and videos
Mail: the To, From, and Subject fields of all local messages
(including Sent mail); message bodies are not searched
Notes: the text of each note.

Spotlight is now integrated into all applications from
Apple. In addition to the separate Spotlight window you can also search in
applications such as Mail, Contacts, Notes, and your iPod.



Voice
Memos

Another new application is Voice Memos. This allows you, as the
name suggests, audio recordings. These may be short messages or ideas, but also
complete stories or a meeting. You can use the audio recording on your iPhone
also edit. For example, if you’ve included too much you can cut it and then
save.

The Voice Memo application
The audio recordings are
stored within the application itself. Sync with your Mac or PC via iTunes. In
iTunes they are in the sidebar in a new playlist called Voice Memos. Here Apple
had better have a separate category for them. Now the audio files in just the
rest of your music.

Landscape Keyboard
A much requested feature is the landscape
keyboard. This was already used in Safari but there was not yet available. Apple
has now stopped all major basic applications. Now you can include it to use in
Messaging, Contacts, Mail, Safari, Notes, and your iPod. There are also a few
applications where it is not to use. The only ones here are the App Store and
iTunes Store.

My experience with the landscape keyboard is very
good. Especially with longer messages, it is fine to use. While I have to say
that in the beginning to get used to. This is because the keys have a larger
sitting area.


Cut, copy and paste
In iPhone OS 3.0 is it possible to edit text,
images and web with cut, copy and paste. This also works between different
applications. You can thus use text of the web and copy it into an email or SMS
and paste it.

Have you made a mistake when pasting? This is very easy to
undo, you can just have your iPhone / iPod touch to shake and you get a screen
asking you if you cut / paste wish to undo. This also works with photos. You can
very easily create a photo gallery from your e-mail with copy and paste.




App Store
Within the App Store there are a few things changed to
make better use. One of the biggest changes here is the display view
(screenshot) section. This locks itself when you scroll over it. This ensures
that you easily can see page.

Also new is the rating system. This
ensures that parents limit their children to certain applications. The reason
why the applications having a certain rating is neatly displayed. There is also
specify whether it is a tested application with iPhone OS 3.0.


Telephone
If you are in the phone application, when you called you can
see that there are now behind the name indicates whether the mobile home or work
number is called.

You can now also click on the blue button to get
recent call details like call time so called call-log.


Contacts
In contacts have now the possibility to contact someone to
share via MMS or e-mail. This is done through a vcf file.

Safari
It is now possible to the last tab to close. If you do this an
empty tab is created. This is very useful to accelerate the opening Safari.You
can press a link to choose whether you want to open a new tab to open the url .


Stopwatch
The stopwatch is now to how long the current round lasts.
This was in the previous version is not the case.

Messages

You can send in an MMS are choosing to take a picture or choose an
existing photo. You can also contact sites or via MMS.It is also possible to
delete certain messages.


Stocks
Now iphone can able to
provide you information of your asseverate stock.Here it is now possible to a
large graphic display.


iPod
The biggest change in the iPod
application is the search of video and audio files.The speed with which you do
that is determined by the position of your finger on the screen.

Another
nice feature Shake to Shuffle. This lets you shake your iPhone to take you on
any new track


Messages
When iPhone does receiving a message, it always shows a
small piece of the message on the screen. If the message does not read the
iPhone shows after a few minutes a notification to let you know that the message
has not read it.

Auto-complete

In OS X is quite long as
possible to the web forms automatically fill in to your address book and
settings. This is now possible on your iPhone.

Restrictions

If your kids have access to an iPod touch or iPhone , you might don’t
want to listen to some music by them also may be some movies or some
applications / services. This is all very easy to configure and restrict access.

Find My iPhone
Find My iPhone
is a new service for MobileMe users.A new feature in the iPhone 3.0 firmware
appears to let users remotely search a lost or stolen phone by securely
requesting the device’s location via Apple’s MobileMe service. With this service
your iPhone via the MobileMe Web site can find. So if you lost your iPhone you
can now easily find!http://forums.techarena.in/reviews/11959

MobileMe supports setting up secure IPSec tunnels
between remote clients over the Internet, acting as a catalyst by tracking the
locations of MobileMe-registered systems and securely publishing their location
to other MobileMe-registered devices using Wide Area Bonjour.

The beauty
of this service is that your iPhone can set a message. You can edit a message to
send on the screen and find the person who have your phone and report that your
phone is lost.This message is then sent to your iPhone which means that it
arrives within seconds. If you send a message you can also choose a sound to be
heard. This sound is also on your iPhone and does not stand still when press ok.
you will get an e-mail with a confirmation that your message is actually read.

Conclusion
Apple has this update with a lot of new features and
improvements introduced. Some functions have already waited a while, others were
unexpected. This update will certainly make the iPhone an even greater success,
than it already has. I must say that I really like iPhone OS 3.0 and my
experience with the iPhone is great and improved since installing the update.
The iPhone feels a lot faster and the new features work as you expect them to
work, making its use very easy to get used to. This update is in my view a must
have for all iPhone and iPod touch users

Costs
This update is
free for all iPhone users.but iPod touch users will have to pay 9 euros.

  • Landscape keyboard in all major applications
  • Reacts faster than the previous iPhone OS
  • MMS support
  • Improved camera stabilization
  • Cut, copy & paste
  • Your iPhone detection to Find My iPhone

Downsides

Remote Wipe
With MobileMe Find My iPhone is also possible
for your phone to get away completely empty.It wiping the device clean or
sending a text message that its finder can read. If your iPhone is stolen for
example, you can empty out so that all your personal data removed and the iPhone
will get back to the factory settings.
