iPhone 3.0 software– go get it

Updated July 3rd, 2016.

If you buy a new iPhone you get the latest iPhone system software (iPhone OS 3.0) and that software lets you do some pretty cool things:

  1. Cut, copy, and paste
  2. Landscape keyboard for email, text messages, etc.
  3. Spotlight search of email, address book, etc.
  4. Voice memos

… and lots more. The neat thing is, you can put the new iPhone software on an older iPhone– for free. It’s fine with me if you quit reading right now and go do it.

In case you need instructions:
1. Connect your iPhone to your Mac with the USB cable.
2. Sync your iPhone (this creates a fresh backup).
3. Click the “Check for Updates” button in iTunes and get the 3.0 software
4. Download the update and let Apple (and time) do the rest.
