iphone3gsBetter late then never I guess. With the new iPhone firmware on the way and a release date somewhere near September 17th, it’s time to take a look at the new features. Like I said, better late then never.

There are people who don’t know what changes will come with the new firmware so for them this is a nice overview. For the people who already know everything about this 3.1 version, just pretend you’ve never seen this list before ;).

  • Video editing on iPhone 3GS wont overwrite the clip over the original when you are editing a clip.
  • iPhone will now vibrate whenever you switch to the mode where you can move and arrange icons on the iPhone home screen.
  • “Fraud Protection” toggle has been added to settings under Safari.
  • iPhone boot time is now faster.
  • Voice Control over Bluetooth.
  • New APIs to enable third party apps to access videos and edit them.* Updated AT&T profile to 4.2
  • Updated modem firmware to 5.08.01
  • Improvements to OpenGL and Quartz.

If you know more, please feel free to tell us in a comment.

    Wow, you know what’s interesting? For me, this update doesn’t seem worth it. I guess the only problem I’d have is when certain AppStore apps require that you upgrade in order to use them. Otherwise, I don’t see a real reason to upgrade and jailbreak again and get ALL those jailbroken features back AGAIN!

    I suppose I’ll upgrade only once it’s absolutely necessary…

    I think they took out the vibrating action when moving icons. It’s not in Beta 3.

    My phone is already set up to use mms. All I’m waiting for is AT&T. :P
