The below list is what many believe will be the specs and features of the next generation iPhone (the one which will come with new OS iPhone 3.0) to be announced at the next WWDC on July 17, this summer. A source has told the Apple iPhone Apps blog that the new iPhone will launch on July 17. Not surprisingly, much of the specifications fit in with past rumors that the device will introduce a digital compass and a video recorder.
What feels a bit shaky is that “the source” didn’t manage to leak any new photos of this “2009 iPhone”, full specs after the cut…
It seems BGR are on a row, they have received further images from their “trusty ninjas” of what new features the iPhone 3.0 and the next gen iPhone will sport. The two screenshots below basically sums it up, the one on the left which says in the middle “you can take videos using the camera”, we have shown you before. While the other one clearly confirms our suspicion and indicates that the future iPhone OS 3.0 will give its users the ability to choose whether or not to display its remaining battery as percentage.
Here are some of the latest Apple iPhone 3.o shots which have been leaked onto the net. The shot shows a design layout that looks similar to our present iPhone OS. However, with another unannounced new functionality, video recording feature, more setting options, usage information and accessibility entry, this further supports earlier speculations that video recording, a feature many user have been hoping for is likely to be coming when Apple hopefully announces a new iPhone later in the Summer.

Just wanted to quickly point out something to iPhone 3G users since we received a few messages earlier in the week. Its about the release of iPhone 3.0 and now of course in Beta 2, some who have access to the iPhone Dev Center have been tempted to update.
You will already know what great features iPhone 3.0 offers, the latest release of iPhone 3.0 Beta 2 even does abit more. Firstly, APIs for the iPhone’s Push Notification Service have finally been thrown into the firmware, for some reason it wasn’t in the previous version. Secondly, Beta 2 of OS 3.0 now supports up to 11 pages of home screens of apps as opposed to currently nine.
However, iPhone 3G users whether you are currently unlocked with yellowsn0w or not unlocked but want to keep this possibility open in the future, please do not try to upgrade to the latest iPhone 3.0. If you don’t care about having your iPhone 3G unlocked and don’t think it will be necessary in the future neither then you can.
The reason is as many will know the baseband that iPhone Dev Team’s iPhone 3G unlock application works with gets upgraded once you click on the firmware update button. This to date is still not reversible.
The iPhone Dev Team also warns that using the recently released unofficial QuickPwn is dangerous, yes it may offer a jailbreak solution for those who have updated to the latest 3.0 Beta 2 but it may bring with it serious consequences:
That’s because QuickPwn, by its very nature, requires you to already have accepted Apple’s official IPSW, along with its baseband update. If you do that, you will (possibly forever) lose your ability to software-unlock your iPhone 3G.
It doesn’t look like the iPhone Dev Team will be releasing or updating their existing tools anytime soon, mainly because its unecessary for firmwares in beta which already itself contains lots of bugs.
Since iPhone 3.0 was revealed last week, a number of clever people who have access to the developers beta version of the OS firmware 3.0 have been able to explore it in more depth. A number of details have now been spotted, much more than what was announced and talked about at the presentation last week.
Within days of testing out the new firmware and examining its infrastructure, these folks have spotted details which suggests the following:
