Apple has released the iPhone 3.0 Software Update for the iPhone and iPod touch. The long-awaited software comes with more than 100 new features including: Cut, Copy and Paste; MMS; Spotlight Search to search across iPhone or within Mail, Contacts, Calendar and iPod; landscape keyboard for Mail, Messages, Notes and Safari; expanded parental controls for TV shows, movies and apps from the App Store; support for stereo Bluetooth; Shake-to-Shuffle for shuffling music; and the ability to capture and send audio recordings on the go with the new Voice Memo app. The iPhone 3.0 software also includes a new Find My iPhone feature that works together with MobileMe so you can locate your lost iPhone on a map, send a message that will appear on the screen or play a sound to help you find it even if your phone is set to silent.

New iTunes features available with the iPhone 3.0 software include wirelessly downloading movies, TV and audio programs as well as iTunes U so students can download learning materials on the go.

The iPhone 3.0 software is free to all iPhone users. For iPod touch users, the software is priced is $9.95.

I feel like a fool upgrading my old iPod touch for ten bucks again, but it's so nice having C&P. Yay!

In to Mail.app. I recall there was a Notes section when I set up Mail, but I removed it since I didn't use it (and it didn't sync to anything). Now I can't figure out how to add it back on.

No problems or complaints here. It's so nice having copy and paste and Spotlight. I think Safari also feels more responsive.

I might take some heat for this, but am I the only person in the world that thinks this update was seriously overhyped? I mean it added a couple really nice features, but I wouldn't call them earth shattering or revolutionary. I am excited about MLB @ Bat adding live video though.

I'd agree its not earth shattering but the reason its been so hyped is down to many of features being long requested by users and some other nice bonuses.

It seems okay to me. I didn't problems or slowdowns with the install either. Today must be my lucky day! Very Happy

The new features go a long way towards usability. Maybe I'm just iPhone'd out. The amount of coverage pre and post 3.0 on the tubes (and even TV) is just crazy. I hate even talking about it. That's why I've been on ESPN.com for the last hour looking at baseball stuff. Laughing

I'm happy enough with the new iPhone features, but I didn't even bother with my 1G iPod touch. There just isn't enough there in my eyes to make it worth $10 dollars. Plus, I think my battery is starting to go bad.

I know AT&T isn't ready for the tethering thing yet, but just wondering how you access it. I didn't notice anything in the new 3.0 that hints to how to set it up. Everything else seems to be working okay though. Safari does seem to be quicker too.

It will be in your network settings when available. Here's the best article I've seen on tethering.
