The iPhone is slowly but surely catching up in the software category. I’m pleased that after all the bickering in the last 2 years over what the iPhone does and doesn’t have, almost everything we’ve asked for has finally been thrown at us at once. Yeah, still no Flash in safari, but I think iPhone users will leave that to another day.
Is it worth it to upgrade to iPhone 3.0? Of course it is. There is no reason not to. The software isn’t too buggy for a first release, and it’s not perfect, but it’s usable and recommended. Now, if you are an iPod touch owner that could be different. If all you use your device for is to listen to music, then paying $10 to upgrade isn’t worth it in my opinion (unless you want to be able to search through songs and such).
iPhone 3.0 is taking the iPhone in the right direction, and hopefully it only gets better from here.
This system software update is available now for the iPhone 3G and iPod touch. It comes pre-installed on the iPhone 3G S.
