Eight new features to expect in Apple’s forthcoming iPhone 2.2 update

“One of the great things about the iPhone is the regular software updates. Free and automatic improvements are piped, hot and steaming, to your pocket computer,” Charlie Sorrel reports for Wired.

“We don’t know exactly when the next version of the iPhone operating system (v2.2) will arrive, but the leaks are springing fast, and the new OS looks like a useful update — full of new toys,” Sorrel reports.

Here’s what the rumors say so far:
• Google Street View
• Direct Podcast Downloads
• Rating Applications on Deletion
• Line-In Support
• Emoji Emoticons
• Location Sharing
• Safari Tweaks
• Copy and Paste*

*Sorrel writes, “Kidding! You didn’t fall for that one, did you?”

  1. I used to have Palm, later a iPaq (hp’s pocket pc) and then a Black Berry, all of them with copy and paste function…. but they still crap…

    P&C;can help, a lot of time I wanted to copy a SMS and paste it on another SMS, but the iPhone gives me so much functionality that I will rather prefer an iPhone with out copy and paste that any other N95 or Bold or any other bad imitation of the iPhone.

  2. I know 10 people that would buy one if they could simply text a photo to a friend. It’s not a big deal for me or my wife but a LOT of people love that feature and won’t sacrifice it for another phone, even an iphone. Just add it Apple!!

  3. For us Europeans, SMS is important. SMS handling in the iphone is to basic for such an advanced device. NO charater count, impossible to forward a message, impossible to delete a single message without deleting the whole conversation, etc. My 6 years old nokia does this quite well!!!! And how about video recording? Is that so difficult to add this feature??

  4. OK, so has Apple actually come out and said why there is no C&P;or MMS. Has anyone interviewed an Apple rep and pinned them down on these issues? I thought that the C&P;was not a ‘priority’, yet are we to believe that the people of the world have just been clamoring for ‘Emjoi Emoticons’ & ‘Rating Applications upon Deleting’? Come on, Apple – do the right thing and stop wasting the time of your developers and get with the frickin’ program.

  5. Could we just make the iPhone 3G work with the various chargers I’ve acquired over the years ESPECIALLY THE DOCK IN MY CAR! The damned thing plays, but won’t charge. My iPod 3G, Nano, and iPhone 2G all charged properly.

    Apple somethings aren’t so easy to change.

  6. Nothing on the list is a big deal to me except copy/paste. The rest is just BS. I would rather see:

    Copy/paste
    MMS
    Some way to link maps to an address in an SMS
    Ability to edit notes on the desktop
    Folders for applications (I have about 8 screens of apps and 2 taps is much easier than 6-7 swipes to get to an app I want
    Ability to add info from an email/SMS/mms to a contact or calendar
