iPhone OS 3.0 Now, Mac OS X Update Soon

Apple and iPhone fans all over the world are in a frenzy (presumably) right about now over the announcement that Phil Schiller and Scot Forestall will today unveil the new iPhone OS 3.0. We do not precisely know what the operating system will feature, but some bits and pieces have slipped through and we will present them here. Keeping with the Apple developed operating system theme we’ve got here, it must also be said that the Mac OS X 10.5.7 will potentially be released by the end of this month, while the Mac OS X 10.6, the Snow Leopard, might be pushed back as late as autumn.

The news about this potential release delay did not originate from Apple, but from Shaw Wu, analyst with Kaufman Bros. According to him, we might not get to play with the Mac OS X 10.6, Snow Leopard until the end of summer, or in a worst case scenario, until autumn. The thing is that Shaw Wu’s predictions did not always prove to be true; he managed to correctly predict the release of new desktop Macs, which makes us trust him, but he also said the new Macs would be accompanied by an Apple TV/Time Capsule combo, which never happened.

Moving on to the iPhone and it OS 3.0, it would seem that Apple is not going to shed any light onto what the operating system will feature, it will just let us wait for the event which will be held today, the 17th of March, at its headquarters in Cupertino, California. Amongst the new features expected to be included in the iPhone OS 3.0, we have:
- Cut/Copy and Paste, which has been confirmed by Kevin Rose, founder of Digg.
- Push Notifications
- Background multi-tasking
- MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service)
- A brand new app launcher
- Tethering
- Compass
- Premium App Store Plus

The one thing you must keep in mind is that this is Apple we are talking about and that none of these features have received official confirmation. As is the case with the Cupertino company, we might not get some of the features we’ve been rooting for, but then again Apple might pull something amazing out of its bag, something we’ve never even thought of asking for. We will just have to wait and see precisely what new features will be included in the iPhone OS 3.0.
