Kako ne bi bilo greške, iz Applea posebno naglašavaju kako je riječ o software/firmware paketu, a ne novom komadu hardware-a. S druge strane najavljuju kako će se novi iPhone uređaj na tržištu pojaviti u lipnju. Vlasnici iPhone i iPhone 3G uređaja mogu bez problema od danas skinuti novi paket programa na svoj mobilni uređaj.
Što donosi novi software/firmware? Evo noviteta (na engleskom jeziku):
* Cut, copy, and paste: Double-tap to bring up the dialog, drag the start and end points for the text you want to cut/copy, double-tap again at the place you want to paste.
* Push notifications for apps: This isn’t quite the same as background-running apps, which Apple is not introducing due to battery and resource concerns, but it allows near real-time notification of server-side events associated with a specific app.
* Send multiple images at once.
* Landscape keyboard available in more apps, including Mail.
* Extended search to apps like Calendar, iPod, Notes, and Mail.
* Stereo Bluetooth A2DP support, but not for 2G iPhones
* MMS will be included with Messages alongside SMS, but not for 2G iPhones.
* Spotlight for iPhone
* Voice memo application
* Availability of VoIP functionality within certain games and apps
* Peer-to-peer Wi-Fi connectivity
* Use your iPhone to remotely control accessories
* Rumbling within games
* Access your music within other applications
