Apple released version 3.0 of the operating system for its iPhone devices a few days ago, as we mentioned earlier in this news article. An entry in the Meuktracker should of course not be missing, which is why we still place this update here. The update can be downloaded as usual via iTunes 8.2 after which it can be sent to the iPhone. New in this release include the previously promised Push Notifications, a cut-copy/paste feature, and the Spotlight search application:
