Features of iPhone OS 3.1 :
- Increase the speed of Boot (timing of ignition decreased)
- Have made several changes all’AudioToolBox the OpenGL | ES, the Quartz Core, the IO Kit (editor of images and video.) Soon we will see how they affect applications.
- Added the new option “Save and Copy” while editing the video. In Firmware 3.0 when a video is cut completely lost the original file and saved only one remained unchanged. Now it is possible to maintain both, so we can send short video via MMS without deleting the whole.
- If you hold down the Springboard icon, not just start swinging the iPhone will emit a small vibration
- Solved the problem of multiple SMS: In Firmware 3.0 when multiple recipients, the message is automatically transformed into MMS. Now it is possible to send sms to multiple people without recourse to the small tricks that you proposed.
- Better reception of network
- Improved WiFi Reception
- The Voice Control also works with Bluetooth
- The modem version is updated to 5.08.01 (which probably will not work ultresn0w more)
- All’SDK added new API that allow developers to access and edit the video, which will arrive soon in AppStore applications to edit video, add effects, frames and more.
