Latest enterprise beta reveals iPhone contacts search, meeting invites


Two new features planned for iPhone software version 2.0 have been revealed in the latest version of the beta software recently distributed to enterprise developers. Screenshots taken from the release show a new search bar in the Contacts menu, which is likely a replacement for the magnifying glass icon seen in the same menu during the iPhone Software Roadmap event. A drawer button found in the Calendar application, previously seen but rendered inactive in earlier beta releases, has been shown to provide access to a meeting invitation interface. Notification of new meeting invitations appears on top of the Calendar icon on the main screen, similar to how the number of new SMS or emails are displayed above the Text and Mail icons. Apple plans to release iPhone software version 2.0 this June.

Incredible. Next thing you know it will have proper categories. The pace at which this device approaches the functionality level of Newton OS from TEN YEARS ago is near mesmerizing. Not.
