Apple announced 100 new features for users that include cut, copy and paste, long demanded by iPhone users, picture messaging and an in-phone search feature, but not Flash video. Certain features, including MMS, GPS, and A2DP Stereo Bluetooth, will only work on the iPhone 3G due to hardware features lacking on the original iPhone or iPod touch. The original iPod touch also lacks a built in mic input.
The iPod app now supports “shake to shuffle” during playback, iTunes account creation. Apps in general get access to the iPod library, new audio video tags, live streaming of audio and video, and A2DP stereo Bluetooth headphone support.
Users can also now take advantage of enhanced peer-to-peer capabilities for games and other programmes that communicate wirelessly.
