iPhone 3.0: Mobile Safari to get Anti-Phishing, Auto Fill

iPhone 3.0: Mobile Safari to get Anti-Phishing, Auto Fill

Apple has gotten some much-deserved heat in the past for not adapting anti-phishing measures into their Safari browser. Phishing is when "bad guys" make look-alike websites and try to trick users into entering personal data like passwords or credit cards numbers, so they can be used to break into user accounts or make fraudulent purchases. We've had some warnings about MobileMe phishing attacks in the past for example.

iPhone 3.0: Double-Click and Type to Search! New Home Option for Camera and Spotlight

iPhone 3.0: Double-Click and Type to Search! New Home Option for Camera and Spotlight

One of Dieter's longest longings for the iPhone was the ability just to start typing to search. Just turn the phone on and start typing to launch a device-wide query for all your contacts, emails, events, etc.

Well, it looks like iPhone OS 3.0 finally delivers for him, and all of us. The new iPhone 3.0 Settings > General > Home Button preference page expands on the iPhone 2.0 options of Home, Phone Favorites, and iPod with the two new, much appreciated additions:

iPhone 3.0: Apple Creates new Voice Memos App

iPhone 3.0: Apple Creates new Voice Memos App

With the joy Steve Jobs typically reserves for introducing new Mac OS X Dashboard Widgets, and a similarly Jobsian "it's gorgeous", iPhone Software Senior Vice-President, Scott Forstall showed off a new App for Mobile OS X at the iPhone 3.0 Preview Event.

The first new, built in App from Apple in a while, and unlike the previous two -- iTunes and App Store -- the first one which isn't just a portal to buying content, Voice Memo does indeed look very, very nice.

iPhone OS 3.0: Stocks Widget Gets Updated

iPhone OS 3.0: Stocks Widget Gets Updated

Stocks, the widget-like application that's been unchanged since the original iPhone 1.0 release is finally getting some refresh love from Apple in iPhone 3.0. While the top part, or actual stock info, remains the same, the old version's graph along the bottom has been replaced with news results. Still want the graph? No problem, turn to landscape view and you get it bright and bigger than before. Also new, if you tap on the graph line, you get the stock price that day and if you tap at a second location as well, you get the delta (change in value) between those two points.

iPhone 3.0: MobileMe has "Find My iPhone" Setting?

iPhone 3.0: MobileMe has "Find My iPhone" Setting?

BGR, who claims to have chanced upon the iPhone OS 3.0 developers beta via shinobi-affiliated sources, also came across an interesting looking new setting in the MobileMe account page:

Find my iPhone

They wonder allowed if this is a new GPS locate feature for iPhone (like an iPhone low-jack). That would be a very cool update to MobileMe indeed, though limiting it to MobileMe wouldn't be anywhere near as cool.

iPhone Dev Team: Don't Load iPhone OS 3.0 Beta if You Want to Keep Using YellowSn0w

Anytime there's an update -- or in this case, even a new beta firmware for developers to test out months ahead of an update -- the iPhone Dev Team reminds Jailbreak users, especially those running unlocked using YellowSn0w to stop, breathe, and wait for the "all clear" before updating.

In this case, the Dev Team says:

Apple iPhone 3.0 Massive News Roundup!

Apple iPhone 3.0 Massive News Roundup!

So Apple previewed iPhone OS 3.0 today, and made the first beta available for developers, but it won't be released for us users until "summer" 2009 (we're guessing June or July). No new hardware was announced (we're guessing WWDC in June for that too!), but boy-oh-boy were there a lot of software announcements. Here's a roundup of posts we have up thus far. Yes, it's been quite a day for the iPhone, for TiPb, and for our awesome community -- thanks everyone!

iPod Touch (2nd Gen) DOES Have Bluetooth, Gets iPhone 3.0 for $10

iPod Touch (2nd Gen) DOES Have Bluetooth, Gets iPhone 3.0 for $10

So much iPhone news came today that it's tough to keep track of it all. One thing we wanted to make sure didn't get lost in the shuffle was the iPod Touch news that came out today. Specifically, the iPhone 3.0 software will come to the iPod Touch for a $10 upgrade fee and will include an "unlock" to give the iPod Touch the Bluetooth functionality that's being added in iPhone 3.0.

Apple Announces Copy and Paste for iPhone 3.0

Apple Announces Copy and Paste for iPhone 3.0

As widely rumored (yep, Kevin Rose was right!), Apple announced Copy and Paste today for iPhone OS 3.0, with "cut" relegated to apps that support it (?).

It works differently in different apps, this is what we can figure out:

Mail & Notes (and 3rd party?): double tap to begin. Drag small delineator icons to start and end of text string you want to copy.

Safari (and embedded browsers): Tap and hold to begin. Selects blocks of text.

Photos: Tap the action button to begin. Select multiple photos to paste into email. (Unknown if Apple will scale or compress before sending?)

Apple's Mobile OS X Now On 30 Million Devices! 17 Million iPhones, 13 Million iPod touch

Apple's Mobile OS X Now On 30 Million Devices! 17 Million iPhones, 13 Million iPod touch

As part of the iPhone 3.0 Preview Event today, Apple announced that their iPhone OS, which powers both the iPhone and the iPod touch, is now on 30 million devices -- including 17 million iPhones (presumable 2G and 3G) by December, 2008. And while we're admittedly mathlexic around here, but that sounds like the first admission of iPod touch sales to us, which would peg them at 13 million?

Apple Announces (Again) Push Notification Services for iPhone 3.0

Apple Announces (Again) Push Notification Services for iPhone 3.0

We've asked what happened to the Push Notification Service that iPhone Software VP, Scott Forstall first announced back at WWDC 2008. We've even wondered if Apple had changed their mind and gone with a true background multi-tasking approach. Or whether they'd simply scrapped the idea entirely?

Turns out Push Notification took a little longer to polish up than Apple anticipated, in addition to developers requesting features above and beyond what Apple initially expected (though, in all "truthiness", we didn't see anything new above the surface yet ourselves).

Apple claims to have tested Windows Mobile, Android, and other devices running background IM, and that battery drain was 80% compared with 20% for Push Notification. We're not buying that yet, but we are happy Apple is taking their time with this. Better a rock-solid implementation than anything approaching MobileMe's disastrous launch.

So what is Push Notification and how does it work? Read on after the break!
