article imageApple releases iPhone OS 3.1 beta to developers

By Brenton Currie     Jul 6, 2009 in Technology
Apple has released a beta version of an update to its new iPhone OS to developers, with speculation we could see it released to the general public within weeks.
The update, which is extremely unusual for Apple given the short amount of time that has passed since they released version 3.0 of the new OS, has been made available to developers and is expected to fix a handful of bugs and add a couple new features.
It appears that the new update will enable MMS by default - a move which has left some speculating that America may finally be able to use the MMS capabilities on their iPhones after the AT&T network issues which have seen American's unable to use this much requested feature so far.
Also included in the update are some handy new video save features, voice control over bluetooth and in what appears to be a novelty, the iPhone will vibrate when you move icons around on the home screen. The iPhone SDK will also allow third-party applications to be built that can not only view videos but edit them as well.
The update will likely be free for those who have already upgraded to the recently released 3.0 software, although Apple has in the past charged iPod Touch users for these smaller upgrades.
