    According to MacScoop, the recent iPhone 1.1.3 firmware leak is an incomplete and unpolished version of the upcoming iPhone update -- and may still contain a few surprises when it is finally released.

    According to the rumor site, Apple intends to include copy/paste functionality into the final version of the 1.1.3 update. No details on how copy/paste would be implemented, or when the 1.1.3 update is expected. MacScoop has provided some rumor tidbits over the years, and was one of the first sites to predict the coming of the new ultra-portable Apple laptop.

    Copy and Paste has been a much requested feature that is absent in the current version of the iPhone. The desire has even prompted a mockup video demonstrating how Apple might incorporate multi-touch Copy/Paste functionality into the iPhone.

    Right side of wrong
    this would be great, and seems logical to put in the update. maybe we'll see video capture as well?

    Hopefully MMS too! So surprising that it hasn't been incorporated already!

    The proof of concept idea seems very functional but too many steps for average users to remember. I'd use it though :) Hope something Apple comes up with something similar or perhaps even more elegant, as they always do.

    This would be nice and if 1.1.3 includes even half the features people have been bitching about (and jailbreaking over) I would assume this would put an end to many people feeling the need to JB their phones. I wouldn't have done it had that been the case.

    I copy and paste 100000x a day.

    No problems here.

    Let the record show that I'm calling BS right now. I would like to eat my words, but I doubt I will

    If it is really to include copy and paste, google maps upgrade with cell triangulation, SMS and/or MMS AND the ability to create/edit icons, to just name a few.....wouldn't it be more than just 1.1.3???

    I think it would.

    Heck, since I have been using Leopard for a little while, I would love it just to sync correctly (including notes and to-do lists) like they promised.

    I really want a video camera function on my iPhone and then have the ability to upload to You Tube on the go.

    That would be awesome!!

    Is it even possible for the iPhone to have a video camera feature? Does it have the hardware?

    Yep. An app should it could be done for 45 secs a pop.

    I am pretty sure the chip or one of the chips inside it also is a video compressor among other things.

    Video Camera Feature possible? Yea, I remember seeing a thrid party app that showed proof that video was possible.

    I am sure apple will hook us up soon, maybe not with all these features, though wouldn't it make sense? That way anyone that hacked their phone would think about not doing it anymore since apple is getting ready to release its SDK in two months...

    I think earlier posters, who suggested that the 1.1.3 was an incomplete version to be replaced by 1.2 with quite a few surprising features, were on the right track.
    As far as MMS, not sure why we need the ability to send lo-fi files with messages when we can send higher resolution attachments with email.
    The only time I would need it is when a friend with an older phone (no email attachments) can only send me his lo res phone camera photo via ancient MMS.

    Besides the obvious things like this, I would love to be able to save photos from websites to my iPhone.

    The article clearly states that the update will happen at Macworld.

    This would be awesome. I sorely missed this feature about 10 mins ago when I wanted to delete a couple of paragraphs when replying to a long email, and had to delete each word one by one!!

    The thing is, how would copy and paste work when copying text from like a webpage, being that the text isn't selectable after safari renders a webpage?
