Mossberg: iPhone Flash support in ‘next couple of months’

Updated

Wall Street Journal columnist Walt Mossberg claims that flash support will be coming to the iPhone in an early software update. In a piece entitled “Questions About Apple’s iPhone,” Mossberg responds to a question regarding the iPhone’s inability to play many internet videos, stating, “Apple says it plans to add [an Adobe Flash] plug-in through an early software update, which I am guessing will occur within the next couple of months.” Lack of Flash support in the iPhone’s Safari browser has been a main issue in early reviews of the device. In addition, Mossberg also references Apple’s iPhone service FAQ, which reveals that should an iPhone need repairs, a loaner iPhone can be rented during the service period for $29.
