“Apple has given developers a taste of the new iPhone firmware, version 2.2 beta 2, and it includes a host of spiffy new features that are making the rounds online,” Robert Palmer reports for TUAW.
MacDailyNews Take: Whoa, you like to think that you’re immune to the stuff, oh yeah… It’s closer to the truth to say you can’t get enough… Sorry, that just popped up out of nowhere.
Palmer continues, “A tipster shared with us some screenshots of the new firmware, including what appears to be the ability to download podcasts directly to your iPhone (and presumably your iPod touch). This could tidily explain why Apple rejected the Podcaster app last month.”
Palmer also reports that “Google Street View will apparently be available by rotating the device into landscape mode. Public transportation support and directions for walking also seem to be included.”
