More iPhone 3.1 details
More features from the iPhone 3.1 beta have been discovered, according to reports. Aside from enabling MMS by default, and allowing third-party apps access to the video editing interface, the new beta is said to finally allow use of Voice Control through a Bluetooth connection. iPhone owners should thus be able to speak commands into a Bluetooth headset, as opposed to Apple's earbuds or the iPhone's built-in microphone.
Quartz and OpenGL rendering are said to be improved, and a phone should now vibrate when repositioning icons. Within the video editing mode, a "Save a Copy" button should permit users to keep an original clip after producing a trimmed-down version. The iPhone's AT&T profile has been updated to v4.2, while its baseband has been shifted to to v5.08.01; the latter fact is particularly relevant to hackers, as it means unlocking tools like ultrasn0w may be rendered temporarily useless.
