Apple seeds iPhone OS 2.1 to devs, adds GPS, audio features

Apple has begun seeding a beta version of iPhone Software 2.1 to select developers, alongside an updated version of the iPhone SDK. Gear Live reports that the new software includes new Location Services features such as direction and speed tracking; it also appears to add a number of new functions for audio conversion and handling, as well as rudimentary support for push notifications for third-party applications.

I think at this point iPhone 3G needs bug and stability fixes more than new futures. Interesting if new OS 2.1 has badly needed fixes for interface delays and even maybe for 3G reception problems.

I would like to have the ability to turn off the Edge cause I’m not on any data plan and don’t need internet anywhere unless I’m on a Wifi network.

But what about copy and paste!? Please G-d, how long must we still wait?

I’m hoping for an “open in new window” option for Safari… and a more support for landscape typing. Cut and Paste would be nice too.

Thinking similar to Steve Ballmer..  “features, features, features, features, features, features!

What we iPhone OS users want…  “Bug fixes, bug fixes, bug fixes, bug fixes!”

What were going to get…  Half baked new features to go along with the already half baked old features.  Bug fixes will cost Touch owners $5.99 when iPhone 3.0 comes out next year.  :)
