Hints That iPhone OS 3.0 is Near

Hints That iPhone OS 3.0 is Near

On Thursday, Apple told developers that it would only accept mobile apps that work with its new operating system, 3.0, which hints that the release is getting near. Apple never gave a date for the release, promising only it would be in the summer.

The new OS for the iPhone and iPod Touch will add functions that people have long clamored for, like the ability to cut-and-paste text and a landscape keyboard.

But it has already added 1,000 new APIs; the term stands for Application Programming Interface. Developers use those APIs to make their software work with the phone. Those 1,000 APIs mean that apps will do much more than they could before.
