According to CNet France (http://www.cnetfrance.fr/news/mobilite/39376117-3800004071t/de-nouvelles-fonctions-pour-l-iphone-des-cette-semaine.htm) (English summary provided by Electronista (http://www.electronista.com/articles/07/12/06/iphone.113.rumor/)), iPhone 1.1.3 is set to arrive as early as this weekend, and will pack some commonly-requested features such as voice memo recording and disk mode.

The disk feature behaves like the equivalent for iPods and will still block users from simply dragging and dropping content to load the phone with playable music, CNET says. Enabling disk mode should still allow knowledgeable users to browse the content on the phone, though this is not expected to be of any use to the hacking community, which has already gained access to the phone's software.

Apple released iPhone/iPod Touch Firmware 1.1.2 on November 8th (http://www.macrumors.com/2007/11/08/iphone-1-1-2-firmware-released/), although it did not become available through iTunes (http://www.macrumors.com/2007/11/12/iphone-1-1-2-firmware-officially-released-in-u-s/) until Monday, November 12th.

Voice memo and disk mode would be nice, of course. I wonder if anything else will be included in the release.

I'd personally like to see some updates to the sms text app as well as video capture support. Anyone think that's likely to happen soon?

Yah that is confusing. Maybe they mean dragging files (word excel, other types of work files.) to the iphone.

Any type of file except music or video.

Of course if we got a fracking PDF reader in the update that would be used for it as well.

So hopefully this update addresses the new bootloader differences and the Dev Tam, Elite and Geohot can start going full speed again. Please let it be.

And diskmode sounds like a welcome addition. It sounds like it would make jailbreaks easier in the future.

I think the point is you could drag and drop music to copy it around but it wouldn't be playable on the phone if copied like that

You can copy music to it just like you can the iPod, but that music will not show up when you browse the iPhone's iPod program. This is the same way all iPods currently operate. The disc acts like a hard drive on your computer, but dragging music or movies to it doesn't mean that you can play them back without adding them to iTunes and syncing.

I think what they are talking about is making the iPhone a big fat flash drive. No thanks. I don't want it to transport a file from point A to point B. I want it to transfer a file from point A, and then open the friggin file ON THE IPHONE! After all it is a handheld computer running OS X according to Jobs.

yeah, but who forgets their flash drive, and remembers to bring the iPhone USB cable?

...I'm just giving you a hard time. This is a welcomed feature and I was surprised when the iPhone didn't include it from Day 1 just like every other iPod. I wonder if they will add "Manual" mode as a part of this, allowing us to sync music from multiple computers like the iPods can.

claytonaugust
Dec 6, 2007, 11:38 AM
oh by the way, it's already possible to enable disk mode (showing up in disk utility and everything) by some command line stuff in terminal.

unfortunately I have no clue what it is...but apparently your computer already recognizes your iPhone as a USB device, but OSX and iTunes block out your computer from mounting it.

djcraze
Dec 6, 2007, 11:39 AM
Disk mode would not help the teams out there cracking the iPhone for homebrew, unless apple changed one huge thing. Right now, the iPod and the iPhone are on separate partitions on the phone. There is one partition for the iPhones apps and system files, and another that gets accessed by iTunes. The one that gets accessed by iTUnes is the larger partition for the iPhone. Enabling disk mode would probably mount the iPod partition. THis would allow the ability to browse the file structures of your iPods content (if you know what your doing). However, it will not gain access to the system files.

This is just a guess, but it makes sense.

nycgraeme
Dec 6, 2007, 11:43 AM
Would the disk mode then allow the use of the iPod camera connector on the iPhone/Touch? As an avid photog I would LOVE this functionality so that I would not have to lug a laptop or another device to download a card of photos for storage and then previewing on that amazing screen.

I tried that a long time ago, I was thinking more of ebook size pdfs.

Does that trick remember if I am on page 60 of 100 in a particular PDF?

I think it starts at page 1 the next time I open it?

Either way, Feb, we should see a solution witht he 3rd party kit.

I started a thread today in the iPhone forum asking if anyone knew when 1.1.3 was going to be released. Compile 'em all had this to say...

Yeah, these so called "places" are directly quoting info that have been circulating on IRC iphone-dev channels since weeks.

From the info I have, it will be released before xmas and highly probable will not update the baseband leaving those waiting for the new secpack in the dust.

No offence man, but I really hope your wrong. I'm hoping to buy an iPhone to use with my Vodafone SIM.

Yeah, you've been able to change the SMS sound since 1.1.1

Unfortunately, you can't add custom sounds to the list (without jailbreaking, at least).

Really wish you could change any of the alert sounds and add custom sounds to the list.

Before Apple get stuck into adding glitzy new features I'd like to see them fix a few of the missing basics.

1) There's a bug in Safari. When you tap a link that opens and takes you to a new page, the previous page (the one you just left) gets the link loaded as well. When you finish with the new page (close it) and try to get back to the original page, it loads the page you've just left, and the page history is wiped out so you can't go back using the left arrow. I've only had my iPhone a week and I've hit this too many times already. It's a real pain in the ass.

I'd also like it if there were an extra widget on the bottom Safari control bar that I could select before tapping a URL, to force a link to open in a new page. Like doing Command-Click in OSX's Safari. But that's a wish list item.

2) SMS needs to support sending to multiple recipients. I used this feature a lot before getting an iPhone.

3) Also the ability to erase individual comments from conversation streams is something I keep wanting to do. MMS I don't care about, though I know others do.

Those are the three most immediate short comings I would like to see addressed in 1.1.3

There are other things on my wish list for the future, like multi-calendar support. A well thought out ToDo list app that doesn't ape the other phones and look like it's been tossed in as an afterthought. And the ability to flag emails and do searches on them.

Having said that, a Disk Mode would be useful as I can dispense with having to carry around USB keychain drives all the time. I never seem to be able to find one when I need one too.

2) To Do support - I no longer use iCal's To Dos; I need them on my phone.
3) Manually manage songs and videos - like I can on my iPods (including the Touch)
4) Notes that sync with notes on my Mac
5) Better reception (O2 in UK - other phones work when iPhone can't; makes Apple - and me - look stupid)

That pretty much does it for me :cool:

There are loads of things that I'd like my iPhone to do, but at the core of these there's a few things that I think any smart phone should do:

1. Copy & paste
1. Send SMS messages to multiple recipients
2. Send contact details via Bluetooth
3. Work as a Bluetooth modem
4. To do lists (syncing with iCal/Mail)
5. Notes syncing (with Mail)
6. Voice Command & Voice Synthesis
7. File browser (i.e. "Finder")

I really hope Apple sort these basics before getting on to fancy stuff.

As for Disk Mode, this is useless given that the iPhone only has 8GB, and the vast majority of users probably use all of that anyway. Disk Mode would only be interesting in combination with a File Browser (see above).

Just my personal opinion :)

Sorry, but you've just made a huge leap there. It doesn't mean that at all. Disk mode on the iPhone will most likely give you access to a sandboxed area to store files, it won't allow you to browse and modify the iPhone's OS/Music Store.

I.e. it won't work like a regular iPod does right now.

File transfer.

This has been the single biggest issue, for me, with my iPhone - still requiring I also carry an iPod with me for such things. Lame.

5) video capture

afaik firewire isnt supported, and hasnt been for the last 2 or 3 ipod gens...

either youre being sarcastic, or you dont realise there are already mobile versions for all windows mobile smartphones/pdas:

i used to have a windows mobile 5 pda, although it did crash a lot (typical)

There's a bug in Safari. When you tap a link that opens and takes you to a new page, the previous page (the one you just left) gets the link loaded as well.

i dont have that bug, never seen it on my iphone. but new tab option would be better. i think pressing and holding a link should open a new tab, rather than showing the url of the link...

Anyone know of any current or planned function that would allow one to "beam" one's contact info to another iPhone? Many non-iphone devices have IR-based features like this and when they try to connect with iPhone using bluetooth, etc. it seems very difficult to do this. Should be easier to allow for more business use and to facilitate getting friend's contact info in...
iphone doesnt have IR
most other phones can do this with bluetooth, but iphones bluetooth stack only currently supports headsets... not other devices such as phones and computers

Good idea. I was going to suggest iTunes and smart play list (PDF works with iPod), but iPhoto idea sounds good too.

Or just email the pdf to yourself (that's what I do)

Just give me a multi-delete or "delete all" mail function

Good lord, yes.

2) SMS needs to support sending to multiple recipients. I used this feature a lot before getting an iPhone.

3) Also the ability to erase individual comments from conversation streams is something I keep wanting to do. MMS I don't care about, though I know others do.

yup and yup.

Arrange e-mails by thread. I don't see why that's not there yet...

absolutely.

As these comments indicate, the mail app is really the iphone's weak point. Please address it apple!

how about allowing cisco vpn to work as SO many people need VPN for their WI-FI networks and although feb is around the corner it is SO vital and the VPN loaded already is rubbish!

copy and paste is vital
better ical would be easy and useful
sms program needs multiple recipients
would be nice to have call duration timers and message counters so you can monitor your monthly allowance better
better bluetooth connectivity wouldn't go a miss

all these things would be SO easy to do

how hard is it to add mms?

This represents another personal annoyance with the iPhone.
I could care less what protocol Apple/AT&T use for sending txt and pix. It's all changing and evolving anyway. But AT LEAST when I receive a picture message from a non-iPhone user, give me a link I can touch that takes me to said image.

Every time I see that annoying "I sent you a multimedia message. You can view my message via the internet at viewmymessage.com using Msg ID y9y959u94j Password oursld89tu" I want to scream.
Am I supposed to find a piece of paper and a pen and jot down the ID & password, launch Safari, navigate to viewmymessage.com and then enter this info... every single time I receive a picture message?
How efficient is that?
Why can't that same info just contain a live link that I could simply touch?
Weak.

Multi-recipient messages are far more useful than that.

guess you haven't been paying attention to the iPod arena much. with the 5G ipods that came out a year or two ago, they dropped firewire support, and you can only charge it with a firewire cable. same thing with the iphone.

afaik firewire isnt supported, and hasnt been for the last 2 or 3 ipod gens...

That's right, I do remember reading about that, now. That's too bad, I've got a 3rd gen that lets me install OS X on it and boot via FireWire, although Apple advises against this due to overheating issues. Still, it was a cool feature.

I am quite glad that Apple are rolling out updates to the iPhone.

For me I really miss some simple things from my Nokia.

Group ringtones, I have a ringtones for friends, family and work. I don't fancy going through each contact and assigning a ringtone.

Voice announcement of caller's name from Phonebook. - I REALLY miss this, it saves me from getting my phone out of my pocket to see who's calling
Profiles: Meeting, Pager, etc. I miss being able to disable ringing but have a simple beep when in meetings.


Other things that would be very useful:

Note syncing
Todos from iCal and calendar colouring would be good as I have a couple of calendars set up.
Flash and other video formats supported in Safari. I can't watch the BBC's video clips but they show the BBC news website in adds(!?!!) in the UK.
PDF support and being able to save files for offline viewing - I have a underground tube map that I would love to see on the phone when I am out and about in London.
Being able to send files over BT, such as pictures, texts and ringtones.

Oh and WIRELESS Syncing please, I don't have my dock near my computer so wireless sync would save a lot of aggravation.

Disk storage would be nice as would the ability to edit Word and Pages documents.

I love apple products but I feel that the iPhone is still quite buggy and I really want attention put on that instead of things like voice notes.

It's pretty obvious that Apple added Notes into Mac OS 10.5 Leopard with iPhone in mind. I remember when Steve Jobs said something along the lines of "you know how people are always sending e-mails to themselves as notes" and I thought "no". But I can understand in the context of iPhone - the notes in 10.5 Mail look identical to those on iPhone - the use of IMAP folders is presumably for a cross-platform method of syncing.

Introducing To Dos into Mail is also bizzare in my opinion - they're already in iCal and that was fine. I suspect this is also to do with using IMAP or Exchange for transferring them to iPhone.

nope, no notes of any kind.

It actually does have a notes function: it's hidden in the Calendar app. When you set an appointment in the Calendar you have the option of adding a note to it. You can type into it just like you would on a notepad. I'm not sure what the limit is yet, but I haven't reached it. :) (It would be nice if I could do it landscaped, but at least it works.) When you synch the Calendar back with iCal, the notes transfer. Now if Apple would just fix the dang alarm sound for the calendar, the Touch would be a respectable PDA.

(I realize people have been saying that the Touch is an iPod and was never intended to be a PDA -- but then why did Apple include the Calendar at all?)

1. Copy & paste
1. Send SMS messages to multiple recipients
2. Send contact details via Bluetooth
3. Work as a Bluetooth modem
4. To do lists (syncing with iCal/Mail)
5. Notes syncing (with Mail)
6. Voice Command & Voice Synthesis
7. File browser (i.e. "Finder")

I really hope Apple sort these basics before getting on to fancy stuff.

This is ridiculous waiting for standard functionalities on the iPhone.

When are they going to come out with an iPhone that can walk my dog? And what about one that would replace the toilet paper when it runs out (and do it automatically, I might add)? Come on, how hard can it be? Ooh, ooh, ooh . . . and one that makes spaghetti just like Mama used to make.

You know what? I would rather have them do things well on what they DO have, rather than do things half-assed on every kind of app they can stuff in there. I've been looking at a bunch of forums on what the iPhone "should" have . . . on what the iPhone needs to have . . . what were they thinking? Why didn't they include this, or that? So far, the list includes about 26 different things. Think about it. That's a lot of crap.

Do things right on what they do have. And let's hope on when they DO add new features, they do them right. That's all I'm saying. I would rather have something that is incredibly easy to navigate and use rather than have to slug through 64 different menus, sub-menus, unintuitive menus and crappy apps I don't need or don't work worth a damn, etc.

Now, having said that, here's a little list I think needs to be on there:
(1) Copy and Delete. That's a given.
(2) Search Feature
(3) Disk Mode
(4) The Spaghetti App. Hmmmmmmnn smells good already . . . .

One pet peeve of mine is that there's no option (that I can find) to keep HTML emails from auto-downloading images. I never use the "swipe delete" on spams, because I'm afraid of accidentally reading the message, and causing my phone to possibly connect to some random server somewhere and acknowledge receipt, download viruses, etc...

I thought disabling HTML downloads in mail was one of the most basic security precautions; OS X's Mail.app supports it as does Outlook Express, Thunderbird, etc. Surely this would be a trivial option to implement as a simple disable; although having the option to click a button to download the blocked images on a message-by-message basis would be nice.

Also, I've been increasingly bugged by the weather applet, of all things. All you get is some sort of icon (e.g., snowflakes with slashed line), and the min/max temps. There's a little yahoo link to get "more information", but all it does is jump to some sort of landing page at yahoo that is trying to be some local portal with a whole bunch of random crap, but not the full weather report!

I'm glad they're adding official disk support, although a jump drive is a lot smaller and possibly cheaper than carrying around the USB-dock connector cable...

True, but I've got two docks (one with the bluetooth headset at home, and the one that came with the iPhone attached to my office machine), and other connector cables in my laptop bag. So it is very rare that I don't have some way of getting data on and off the iPhone.

Yeah, these so called "places" are directly quoting info that have been circulating on IRC iphone-dev channels since weeks.

From the info I have, it will be released before xmas and highly probable will not update the baseband leaving those waiting for the new secpack in the dust.

No offence man, but I really hope your wrong. I'm hoping to buy an iPhone to use with my Vodafone SIM.

This is the kicker for me. I can't believe in three attempts Apple has completely thwarted the hackers. Although different, it makes Sony's attempt at blocking the PSP fairly pathetic. Of course, they now have no reason whatsoever to change the bootloader version, because you can't hack it...

"The disk feature behaves like the equivalent for iPods and will still block users from simply dragging and dropping content to load the phone with playable music, CNET says."

So what's the purpose of disk mode then ?

"Disk mode" allows you to move files from one computer to another. Plug iPhone into computer A, it shows as a harddisk. Copy files on it, and unplug. Plug iPhone into computer B, it shows as a harddisk. Copy files from the iPhone onto computer B. Same as with an iPod. Saves you carrying around a memory stick. Apple could also add password protection and encryption to it, in case you copy sensitive data.

This annoys me too, I have to convert RTF files to HTML before viewing on my Touch. Hopefully it's coming, adding support would be relatively trivial.

It's also the default file format for TextEdit (formatted text), so not including it would be odd.

Am I supposed to find a piece of paper and a pen and jot down the ID & password, launch Safari, navigate to viewmymessage.com and then enter this info... every single time I receive a picture message?
How efficient is that?
Why can't that same info just contain a live link that I could simply touch?
Weak.

This makes total sense to me and I have no idea why it isn't this way already. This is coming from someone who recommends the iPhone to friends and family...with hopes that by the time they get one, MMS will be implemented in a way that doesn't suck a$$.

Oh and copy/paste seems like a no-brainer, so much so that I didn't realize I needed it until I couldn't do it; Maybe Apple didn't realize it either. Here's hoping it's in the next update since my Dad might be getting one for my Mom for Christmas and I can already hear my mom asking me how she copies and pastes something. Of course when technology doesn't work the way it should, it's always somehow my fault since I'm the family geek, so :apple: do me a favor and get on this before I have to break the news to my mom.

Where is the following?

1. TODO list support (iCal)
2. Word documents support
3. Cut & Paste

Who gives a s&^%t about dragging music onto the stupid phone.

I want a damn TODO list. I want the same damn TODO list that is in iCal to be on my damn iPhone. How friggin hard is it for crying out loud?!

Target disk mode... kiss my a$$ Apple... give us a useful update for once instead of this crap.

I never dreamed that "future features via update" would be this useless. Maybe Apple research should start working on a iPhone fashion neck band or something. That would fit right in with their present model.

I agree, how hard is it to implement a To-Do-List considering it is in Leopard with Mail and iCal...the same with Note Synching. Apple has not really released anything outside of minor bug fixes, the "Double-Tap" feature of the Home Button (which is cool, but not an App), and the iTunes Music Store which honestly is not really all that useful.

1. to be able to use my iPhone as a modem for my laptop. Ok, so EDGE isn't great (UK user, spoiled by 3G coverage) but at least I could send that email with work that is already late from the train
2. does anyone know whether this can be done by moving an email to be sent (e.g. with an attachment in, for example, MS Word) to a folder in Mail on a MBP, then syncing the iPhone (including Mail), then sending the email (or forward) from iPhone - because that would do it
3. I understand that :apple: is in hock to the phone carriers who don't want modem use of the iphone to interfere with paid services - but this would barely interfere
4. MS Word and Excel browsers would be great (or Pages / Numbers, if you like - it is all the same)
:apple:'s market share in the business community is low - with these issues, Blackberry will continue to stitch it up.

I'm definitely hoping for more corporate functionality.

- Microsoft Mobile Office or iWork for the iPhone. I'm hoping that this will come with the release of the SDK.

- Ability to attach files to emails sent from the phone.

- Copy/Paste (should come with or prior to a possible MS Mobile Office.

- Voice dialing. Maybe some voice recognition software? Could be hoping for too much there. But imagine dictating your notes into your iPhone and having it recognized by Notes, To-Do list, or MS Mobile Office.

- Other stuff: Someone earlier mentioned something to stabilize/focus your pictures. This would be great for taking quick shots on the run.

Use IMAP/drafts directory. Create the email on your mbp and save it to drafts, then on the iphone the mail will be in drafts (assuming you have IMAP properly setup of course).

Agreed.

There are a LOT of things that I understand Apple wants to wait on....no problem with that

But there are a LOT, LOT of things that should be issued nor or damn well soon....features like some of what you said that are really pretty darn basic and should have been put on the original iPhone software.

It is very odd

There's nothing I "need" in a firmware update, but the following would be extremely useful to me:
1) sending SMS to multiple people
2) ability to send & receive MMS natively
3) BT file transfer

Some "luxury" items:
1) smilies for SMS!!
2) A2DP
3) ability to change home screen background w/ having to jailbreak & then install summerboard--too much work for such a small thing!! (besides, I can't jailbreak since I have a week 46 iPhone that came w/ 1.1.2 OTB)

I'm not asking for mush Steve!!

According to CNet France (http://www.cnetfrance.fr/news/mobilite/39376117-3800004071t/de-nouvelles-fonctions-pour-l-iphone-des-cette-semaine.htm) (English summary provided by Electronista (http://www.electronista.com/articles/07/12/06/iphone.113.rumor/)), iPhone 1.1.3 is set to arrive as early as this weekend, and will pack some commonly-requested features such as voice memo recording and disk mode.



Apple released iPhone/iPod Touch Firmware 1.1.2 on November 8th (http://www.macrumors.com/2007/11/08/iphone-1-1-2-firmware-released/), although it did not become available through iTunes (http://www.macrumors.com/2007/11/12/iphone-1-1-2-firmware-officially-released-in-u-s/) until Monday, November 12th.

Article Link (http://www.macrumors.com/2007/12/06/iphone-1-1-3-coming-soon-voice-memos-disk-mode-support/)

Sounds good, I wonder if this firmware update may be secretly installing the tidbits necessary for compatibility with the upcoming official SDK as well...

I suggest that, if reading _rumour_ sites gets you this frustrated then maybe you should stop.

Who is this they you speak of? Apple never pre-announce anything. If rumour sites have built your hopes up then maybe there's something to be learned from that.

New firmware in Feb would be my guess (it'll be out later on today now I've been so definite :) ).

I doubt we will see an update before the new year now. The potential for tech support issues is just too great. There will be enough of those as it is - with all those iPods and iPhones that are going to be showing up in stockings :)

The customers I deal with always put a freeze on hardware and software updates around this time...

Quite possible that Apple will string things out until the SDK launches and they have 1.2 ready to roll.
