    Default iPhone Update (Software)

    *Copied From HowardForums*

    ***

    Everyone Who's Disappointed, I Have Good News!

    I met with my buddy from Apple for Coffee today, I told him I loved the interface, and all the great subtle little features it has that makes it so easy to use. I then told him I really, wanted a File System Access so I could store files, download images from the web, and generally carry around data, not just load it up from iTunes..

    He said Apple IS absolutely BUILDING this, and it will come in a software update no later than when Leopard ships in two months (there will be updates before this)

    Here is what he said:

    * There will be a build in file browser like the new finder in leopard for sorting through files
    * There will be a disk mode
    * The reason that there currently isn't a file browser + way to save files from web is because there isn't a file browser on the phone, and they wanted to release the same one that's gonna be in the upcoming leopard OS, complete with coverflow.
    * There will even be a special version of "iWork" so you can show your keynote presentations
    * So anyway a FULL file browser is coming so you can browse just like windows mobile explorer only in the cool way leopard's file browser is
    * Full spotlight like search is coming too
    * Widescreen keyboard support will be coming in every app, not just safari
    * Copy & Paste, Select Text is coming too (clipboard)
    * Also mail will see an upgrade so you can add accounts without doing so through itunes.
    * Most of the delays in this is because iTunes is the App Windows & Mac users are familar with for iTunes, so Apple didn't want to do a bad interface that had a file browser hacked into iTunes.
    * When Leopard FINAL release comes out, plugging in the iPhone will pop open a special window in the finder that has areas for dragging all your files like a file explorer only more advanced and designed specifically for the iPhone, it will make sure that it works so iTunes knows how much space is for data, and how much is for "iTunes" stuff.
    * Apple will be putting iChat on the phone, very, very soon, before Leopard.
    * Real Applications are coming to the phone shortly.
    * These are all updates that will be software based for the iPhone you already have, so give it a little bit of time. In the meantime enjoy the features it already has.
    * Oh and also there will be Photo Sharing, just like in iPhoto how you can check an option to let other people on the network view your photos.
    * He said .Mac account would eventually sync your accounts to the .Mac server as well from the phone, and so forth.
    * Simplified File sharing when on WIFI networks through bonjour (auto ip discovery) is coming, so once the file system software is up, your buddy in the same room will be able to navigate to his file browser > Network, and grab a file off your phone that you are sharing.
    * Ringtones will be coming very, very soon.
    * The Camera Software will get upgraded soon to have stabilization (software based)
    * Flash is coming eventually, it's just a matter of handling it in a way so when i page has dozens of flash apps running at the same time the page doesn't slow to a crawl, so they have to take the Adobe flash and make some customizations, including for security.
    * Anyway, enjoy the great mobile phone for now, and look forward to all the great stuff coming really, really soon. I can't WAIT for the new file browser so I can store stuff on this device!!
    * Just remember Windows Mobile has been out or a long time, even everytime a new WM phone comes out all the apps that are supposed to work, have to be tweaked or don't fit on the screen or some bullcrap, so realize this is just Apple's very first OS release for mobile Phone. Apple has lots of treats instore for all of you.

    I probably missed a few things, so if you have questions about features that will be software updated, ask because I only typed what I could remember right now, and we talked about quite a bit of stuff!!!!

    *****

    Hope this isn't a dup post.

    This all sounds right and certainly good news OTHERWISE apple risk a backlash from all the developers out there that write code for OSX.
    Leopard has been delayed in part because of the iphone release since they claimed they needed to borrow their best people to get the iphone out on time.
    So Apple have to offer the application writer community something in return for the delays.
    For Apples first phone attempt I think everyone is impressed and as soon as we get to a workable system the number of new applications and tweeks will rise exponentially.
    Iphone is a good product but not yet a great one.
    Leopard I am hoping will be a great product from day one.

    Default Upgraded Bluetooth Stack?

    Jason-thanks for the hope inspiring post! It does make sense that this is Apple's course of action. Did you happen to discuss an upgraded Bluetooth Stack? Because right now it is basically non functional. Just curious. Thanks again. Rob

    granted I have to take this as a rumor, but it does really sound like a stable plan to roll out updates. Leopard could have all the beef for the phone in development. I see the iphone v1.0 as the safest software release they could give the public without loosing to much functionality or making the learning curve to huge. I mean all the hardware is there it could do a ton more clearly. I am really happy with mine atm, and the software updates will only make it better.

    Your friend never mentioned that all of this will be available on iPhone 2.0 right?

    Just to clarify, I had nothing to do with this other than creating this thread. I wish I was there and most certainly wish I had a good buddy who worked for Apple.

    Cheers

    Yay for inside sources!

    This all makes sense actually. I mean, it's one thing to say, "Ya I got a buddy at Apple and he told me they're going to make a nano version!" But all those points you made look so plausible and logical (given Apples history of incrementally updating software with new features) that even if you didn't have a buddy at Apple, it still given credence to your claim.

    All of those points sound really cool, and something I would expect to come eventually--hopefully soon.

    Does your buddy know you posted this? :-)
