iPhone OS 3.1 Beta

As expected, it seems we won't have to wait long for the new update to the iPhone firmware: OS 3.1 beta has just arrived.

Besides the much needed bug fixes, Apple seems to have listened to users and implemented some missing features:

  • The baseband has been updated to 5.08.01 - ultrasn0w users should not use the iPhone OS 3.1 beta, otherwise their iPhones could be permanently locked!
  • iPhone 3GS - When you’re trimming your videos you now have the option of saving the original video by tapping the “Save as copy” button.
  • Voice Control is finally working over bluetooth now!
  • When you move your icons around the iPhone vibrates
  • MMS is enabled by default but does not work for AT&T users
  • The AT&T profile is updated to 4.2
  • Improvements to OpenGL and Quartz
  • There’s now a VideoEditorController API - Allows third party apps to call up video editing UI
  • Video picker API


  1. with 3.1 my 3G and EDGE internet connections no-longer work. Wifi is fine tho...

  2. Weird. But hey, that's why they still call it beta version - hope they ready it for public launch soon.
