New firmware for iPhone to preview next week
Apple is due to launch preview firmware 3.0 for the iPhone sometime next week. There will be an event held on Tuesday which will showcase the new firmware along with its new features and capabilities. Apple said in an email invitation on Thursday that it will provide a “sneak peek” at the iPhone 3.0 software, along with information about the new software kit that third-party vendors use to create applications for the device.
The event will be held in its corporate HQ at Cupertino, California on March 17th. Shares of Apple rose $3.07, or 3.3 percent, to $95.75 in early afternoon trading on the Nasdaq. It will be interesting to see what new bells and whistles come along with version 3.0.
