More and more features are leaking out to the general public from development builds of iPhone 3.0 and the latest batch of information gives more information to the next generation iPhone.
The screenshots come from a reliable source who sent them to The Boy Genius Report and has a very good track record with leaked iPhone features. The screenshots show references to video recording and according to BGR, video recording capabilities would likely be present in the next generation iPhone. Another interesting tidbit is that OpenGL ES V2.0 will be supported. A sample of the screenshots is available after the jump.

Yesterday, a friend of mine found herself stuck on a runway for 5 hours because of poor weather conditions. If she had been a first class passenger, and had been the owner of an iPhone, and had been living two days in the future… she would have been able to hook up her Apple device to a dock connector right in armrest of those plush (and oh-so-expensive) leather seats.
The first iPhone-compatible flight left Washington D.C. for Zurich yesterday, and United promised that all of their international planes would be upgraded within the next two years. Unfortunately, this connectivity won’t be available where it is most needed- in coach. If you are flying first or business, however, you’ll be able to control your iPhone or iPod through your armrest, and watch movies on the existing personal entertainment system- a 15-inch LCD screen.
Although Greg Joswiak, an Apple VP, had lots to say about the system’s capabilities, he didn’t mention whether or not United planned on expanding iPhone support further down the aisle:
“The iPod and iPhone have become essential for millions of travelers around the world. We think United customers are going to love being able… more...
The mobile version of iCal hasn’t had the greatest start from a non working App at Macworld to a watered down version on the iPod Touch, it lacked many things that made the desktop version of iCal rock. A recent dissection by Erica Sadun shows that Apple may be prepping Task syncing to the iPhone.
A piece of code found in the latest Firmware update points toward possible Task support on the iPhone.
ATE TABLE Task (ROWID INTEGER PRIMARY KEY AUTOINCREMENT, summary TEXT, priority INTEGER, due_date INTEGER, completion_date INTEGER, calendar_id INTEGER);.
Its inconclusive whether or not this will be actually implemented and as we’ve reported before, possible features or Apps aren’t implemented right away just because code on the iPhone says different.
To further disprove suspicion of creating a fake Firmware on a level that Apple would be envious of, Andru Edwards of Gearlive answers more questions about the 1.1.3 update and posts a screenshot of his about screen showing his Firmware number is in fact 1.1.3.
The picture below shows that Andru is running 1.1.3 but blocks out his serial number and build number to protect his source. Some hopes are dashed such as SMS forwarding, MMS support and A2DP Support.
Perhaps we all should play a game—perhaps a drinking game? Here are the rules: Whenever you hear about or see an Apple lawsuit, you drink!
Last week, it was someone complaining about the $200 price drop on the iPhone. Today, it’s a California resident, Timothy Smith, claiming that Apple has violated state antitrust laws by forcing you to use your iPhone with AT&T, preventing unlocking for other carriers, and bricking phones that have been unlocked. Very similar to Damian FernÃ¡ndez’s lawsuit.
Smith doesn’t quote a figure for damages in the suit, but asks for an injunction that would bar Apple from selling the iPhone with a software lock in place. At the moment, Smith is the only plaintiff in the suit.more...
Now you really have no excuses. If you read this blog you a) Either have an iPhone and what to be kept up on the latest, b) Really really want an iPhone. Well, if you are in the B camp for the first time since the iPhone shipped all Apple stores are showing it in stock. So this weekend you have no excuses. Now, if you are on the fence thinking, I should wait for Rev 2., is the iPhone really that great just stop all those negative thoughts.
The iPhone really is that great.
And Rev. 2 is going to come via a software update, so don’t worry about that.
And the iPhone really is that great.
So get out there, go to your local Apple store and pick when up. And come back Monday for more of the best coverage for all things iPhone. In the meantime, feel free to leave a comment with any suggest you have to make iPhone Matters the best iPhone blog out there.

The domain, which was purchased back in 1995, is owned by Michael Kovatch who runs a technology company called The Internet Phone Company. Apparently Apple deemed it necessary to own the domain as the link between iPhone.com and its own iPhone device is a no-brainer and has therefor paid one of the biggest known sums of money in history.
The news was first broadcast on DomainTools who mention that Kovatch had already previously turned down an offer from Apple to sell the domain.more...
Apple hasn’t said officially what version of Safari the iPhone is running but I have strong reason to believe it definitely isn’t Version 2. It Could be Version 3 which currently is in Beta for OS X and Windows or it could even be Version 2.x.
I recently accessed Google Docs on my iPhone to finish up some Blog postings and was shocked that no error message was displayed. The thing is, Google Docs is unsupported on Safari 2.0.4 which is the latest version of the Safari 2 for Mac OS X. However Google Docs works on Safari Beta 3 under 10.4.10. This leads me to believe Apple has made changes to Safari besides adapt it to the iPhone’s touch interface.
Check the pictures down below

So it appears that Safari for the iPhone has been updated but in Google spreadsheets I get an error saying that Google Spreadsheets in unsupported and it is very hard to edit or create anything on Google Docs… more...

Me checking out with an 8GB iPhone, aww yeah!
For weeks we were lead to believe that the iPhone didn’t have a SIM card slot, as it would only be running on AT&T’s network and therefore wouldn’t require a removable SIM slot.
But today Think Secret has posted some pictures, albeit unconfirmed at this stage, that with the use of a simple paper clip the SIM slot can be removed and a new SIM card can be installed. I suppose we’ll hear more stories of this as the iPhone is released into the public later on this evening. Bare in mind though folks, this is merely a rumour at this stage.
You’ll also notice in the image above that there is a new iPhone dock which will allow, most probably, the charging of the official Apple Bluetooth Headset.
