More leaked screenshots of iPhone firmware 3.0

With more and more coverage of the latest iPhone firmware 3.0, the secrets about Apple's new iPhone hardware are becoming more of a reality without any official details or announcements from Apple itself.

Many developers have managed to get their hands on the latest iPhone firmware 3.0 for development, and unlocked a lot of features thus far. One nice feature is having a percentage battery indicator on the top right of your iPhone to tell you just how low your battery is becoming.

If this goes to the iPod touch, I'll need a reason to buy a new iPod

*ipod touch mysteriously falls infront of a car and gets run over*

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the "Voice Control" menue under Intrernational.

I didn't say anything 'coz I wrote about it earlier in that other article, about the auto-focus cam etc. It's great they're including it though... if it works well, of course.

Jailbreaking is dead
Not if you want to be able to record video on your 3G/original. Or if you want to use Java or .Net based apps. Or if you want to skin your iPhone. Or if you want to unlock it. Or if you even want to use your iPhone for storage.

So, yeah, not so dead.

Well, I don't think it's dead.....but I restored mine after noticing considerable slowdown with my jailbroken iphone. I couldn't believe how much faster everything ran after restoring!

Umm yeah but this is not jailbroken devices, this comes standard on the iPhone 3.0 firmware. Believe it or not, many consumers do NOT jailbreak their device, or have no idea it even exists. Let alone, modding your iPhone using WinterBoard

Jailbreaking your phone also opens the possibility of instability.

No more then apple does with it's own shoddy software.

Don't know what you mean by that; my iPod touch runs perfectly, and it's stable. Can't remember the last time it froze up on me.

Safari crashes constantly. And mine has crashed when I try to start up spacedeadbeef.

It does? I can't remember the last time my Safari crashed either. The only browser issues I've had is once when it froze whilst I was using Tweetie's built in one Maybe I'm just lucky.

Mine's not jailbroken, so thats not the problem. Safari is known to be buggy(hence why newer updates list "Improved stability of Safari" in their patch notes).

Looking forward to the new version. I'm running beta 2 atm and i love it i really cant wait for the final release.

Wonder if it's going to be in the iPod Touch? AFAIK the Touch doesn't have the usage thing, so unless they add that or move the setting, Touch users get stuck with non percentage, right?

Theres a thing on cydia to do same thing i think the option is in bossprefs if i remember right

Seems redundant that the battery icon is there with the percentage. They should replace the one with the other, just wasting space. Then again, unless its jailbroken you don't need all that room :P

On my not-jailbroken iPod Touch, i just touch the battery icon, and it becomes a %


You must have jailbroken it at one point and then restored it from a backup - as the setting is changed in a preference file.

I don't know why they didn't just use that method - it's already available, after all.
