July 27, 2009

Apple has released iPhone OS 3.1 Beta 3 (build 7C116a) and the iPhone SDK 3.1 Beta 3 (build 9M2808) to developers. So far there are no interesting developments that have been found, though it is suspected that Apple might be implementing tools for use in Augmented Reality applications that require the ability to overlay real-time downloaded data on top of live video.

iPhone OS & SDK 3.1 Beta

The new features include:
• Copy and paste videos. There is a 15 MB limit for copying/pasting videos or images.
• Tethering Counter – If you go to Settings -> Genral -> Usage on your iPhone, you’ll notice Tethering data which shows how much tethering you’ve used.
• Springboard Icons – When you hold down the Springboard icons they no longer vibrate.
• Baseband Updated – The baseband has been updated to 05.11.04.
• Camera API Additions.

Apple Seeds iPhone OS 3.1 Beta 2 To Developers

July 15, 2009

Yesterday Apple provided iPhone developers with Beta 2 of the OS 3.1 firwamre. This release didn’t mention any changes, although the first beta included minor feature adjustments without Apples mentioning. Beta 2 will most likely contain bug fixes which address issues in Beta 1. Along with this a updated version of the iPhone SDK for both Leopard and Snow Leopard have been also released.

3.1 Beta 2

If your using Beta 2 and notice any changes feel free to leave a comment.

Update: I’ve just found that beta 2 also introduces a public API for manipulating live video. Developers are still testing the capabilities but it could open the door for many interesting apps in the near future.
