Apple Bestows Cut-and-Paste, MMS on iPhone Users

CUPERTINO, California — Apple announced Tuesday a host of new features for the next version of its mobile operating system, iPhone 3.0.

Among the additions are two features that the company has long been criticized for overlooking: The ability to cut, copy and paste text between applications, and support for multimedia messages…

Among the most noteworthy of those end-user features:

  • Cut, copy and paste support within and between applications.
  • MMS support.
  • A global search feature, which lets you search content from various applications on the iPhone from a single interface. Like the search feature in OS X, this is called “Spotlight.”
  • The ability to compose e-mail messages, text messages and notes in landscape mode, which gives the user a larger, easier-to-use keyboard.
  • Support for peer-to-peer Bluetooth, which will enable the iPhone to connect with other Bluetooth devices, including stereo Bluetooth headsets. Previously, the iPhone only supported Bluetooth for connecting to monaural phone headsets.

Conspicuously missing from the list are support for video recording, the ability to tether the iPhone (so it can act as a wireless modem for a laptop) and the ability to display Flash-based websites, all features that the iPhone has been roundly criticized for lacking. Apple also refused to answer any questions about potential hardware upgrades to the iPhone…

The beta version of iPhone 3.0 is available to developers now, and will be released to the general public this summer. It will be a free upgrade for iPhone 3G customers, and will cost $10 for iPod Touch users. Users of the first iPhone will be able to get the upgrade too, but it will not include MMS and peer-to-peer Bluetooth support…
