WWDC 2009 Keynote LIVE: iPhone OS 3.0

tetheringSo what’s next? iPhone OS 3.0, obviously. Its new features: cut, copy and paste, which works across apps and undo support via shake. Also, Landscape view and keyboard for all main applications — mail, messages, etc. MMS support has been added as well. But it’s carrier-dependent. In the states, for example, AT&T won’t be supporting it until late summer (audience groans).

Moving on now to Spotlight search and iTunes. Spotlight search across the entire device and all apps. Apple (AAPL) iTunes store on iPhone will soon offer videos for purchase. Audiobooks, too. Support for iTunes U has also been added.

Tethering: Works on Mac or PC, Over USB or Bluetooth. Seamless. No need for additional software. This is also carrier-dependent and…well, look at that. I don’t see an AT&T logo on the list of carriers supporting iPhone tethering. More groans from the audience as Forstall glosses right over this.

Safari for iPhone now boasts improved performance, HTTP audio and video streaming, Auto-fill and HTML 5 support. Also support for 30+ languages.

Nobody was excited about paying top dollar for a movie about WikiLeaks. A film about the origins of Pets.com would have done better.
