Apple said there are more than 100 new features for the non-developer iphone owners like me in the iPhone OS 3.0. Same as usual, Apple doesn’t give us a document about what they are and how to use them.
Until now I myself haven’t see them all. But I do have some findings, just after playing around for a couple of days with 3.0. And I’d like to put all of them here, FYI.
Here they are, grouped by applications.
Much detailed Call History Info, like call number type, call in or out, calling minutes etc.
>>Delete contact info piece by piece(the red button is placed there by ME, ‘coz for some reason screenshot cannot be done at that status)
Contact Share, Tap Address will launch Google Map to search and My Number.
Press the Home key will take you to the left one of the current home screen, until you reach the most left Spotlight Search screen. And then press Home will make you switch between the Spotlight Search and the first home screen right after Spotlight.
Turn the phone into landscape mode will take you to the scientific calculator automatically. Perhaps this it not a new one, i’m not sure here. Correct me if you know it.
Mail: Load Remote Images , Safari : Autofill,Fraud Warning, iPod: Shake to Shuffle.. Well, even though I haven’t figure out how they really works, they are the features that I haven’t seen in the previous firmwares. So just put them here for sharing.
Stopwatch: real time count display for each lap
One more thing, Facebook already starts taking use of the shake API brought by the OS 3.0. Here’s the setting screenshot.
P.S. It works like a charm.
BTW, if you know more undocumented featurs of iPhone OS 3.0, please leave it in the comments. Thanks.
Update(Mar 31,2009): some more findings
1.Safari -> Autofill
very nice, really.
2.Settings ->General ->Home
More choices for the double tap Home button, like to launch Camera, to Search.
