Apple Seeds iPhone 2.1 Firmware with GPS Features



GearLive reports that Apple has seeded a beta version of iPhone 2.1 Firmware to developers.

According to the site, Apple has included new Core Location features that might suggest that turn-by-turn GPS could become a reality. Core Location can reportedly track your direction and the speed at which you are traveling.

Along with the new firmware, Apple has also seeded a new version of the iPhone SDK but the new SDK can not be used to submit Apps to the current App Store. There have been earlier reports that Firmware 2.0.1 had been spotted in the wild, but a 2.1 upgrade would presumably introduce more than just bug fixes.

Can we finally get cut and paste in OS X? Not going to happen. How about a 2nd button on laptops? Not going to happen. Apple is stubborn. And that's not good.

I just want my smooth UI, and stability back.

Edit: Actually no, I want smooth UI, stability, fast browsing speed, removal of SMS typing lag, push email to work properly, Safari to quit crashing, better battery life, and copy/paste.

OK, thats it.

Life support ain't cheap man, and Steve will be on it any day from the looks of things...

Seriously speaking though, I just hope it addresses stability, and gets rid of the awful lag that happens from time to time in SMS and contacts. Copy/Paste would be nice, but that ain't coming out in a minor update... that's something Steve's gonna wanna take credit for on stage like he's the first one to implement it or something (and surprisingly, everyone will roar with applause as if he did).

If they release turn by turn GPS, that would be freaking sweet. I mean hook that thing up to the Aux input of your car and go to town. The iphone 3g would then truly be the greatest phone ever. That and if they would just release MMS to shut up the critics, and I don't even care about MMS.

Looking forward to this more than I was for 2.0 itself. Hopefully this will be a stable version of 2.0...

Where are the downloads for this located? I'm a paid member of Apple's Dev Program. All I see is the SDK download.

I got it off http://developer.apple.com/iphone. I been a paid member since May, so maybe they haven't turn it on for all paid developers yet?

You guys are on drugs if you think there are going to be major features like this included in a .0.1 update.
