MWSF: iPhone gets new, redesigned apps with software update

New iPhone products shipping from the factory will include the software update and existing iPhone customers will automatically get the update for free when they sync their iPhone with [url=http://www.itunes.com]iTunes[/url].

"The Phone doesn’t stand still -- we’re making it better and better all the time," Jobs said. "We’ve delighted millions of users with this revolutionary and magical product and it’s great to share these improvements with them."

Maps has a new interface that is simpler and easier to use and adds new features such as the ability to find your location automatically. With just the tap of a button, iPhone can now triangulate your position using nearby Wi-Fi base stations or cellular towers, according to Jobs. You can use this as a starting or ending point for directions or to find local points of interest. The new hybrid map view combines map view and satellite view so you can see major street names overlaid on satellite imagery.

Users can now create Web Clips -- icons on the home screen that take you directly to your favorite web sites, including to the exact spot you have zoomed into, Jobs said. Web Clips are a great way to track websites that you frequently check such as news, blogs, sports sites and movie listings, he added. In addition, users can now customize their home screen by repositioning any of the icons, and even create up to nine different home screens that they can lick between.

iPhone’s new software update also adds the ability to send the same SMS text message to multiple people. The iPhone saves a history of your text messages, so with one tap you can send a new message to the same group.

The iPhone software update 1.1.3 is available immediately for free via iTunes 7.5 or later for all existing iPhone customers in the US, UK, Germany and France. New iPhone products shipping from the factory will include the software update and existing iPhone customers will automatically get the update for free when they sync their iPhone with iTunes (www.itunes.com). iTunes Movie Rentals are available in the US only.
