Post Edited and Condensed due to Character Limit. New Features Red, Bold & Numbered (NF#). All testers please feel free to post here as well. Question's will be answered to the best of my ability and within the limits of the Apple rules. LAST UPDATE: 15 April 2009 1. A2DP NF#1: a) Paired iSkin CERULEAN F1 Blue Tooth headphones with the following results: Unpair and pair again to the iPhone. I did not have to enter the 4 digit code again. Started the iPod, in the lower right corner is now a blue tooth icon. Tap icon and it brings up a menu to select listening choice. Selected the Cerulean headphones and music played in FULL STEREO to the headphones. There does seem to be some skipping if you move the iPhone around and/or use other apps.

The results were the same as above. c) The Logitic FreePulse Wirelss Headphones did NOT connect. d) UPDATE: APPLE BLUE TOOTH B2 BUG FIXED...Apple Bluetooth now syncs w/iPhone...Does NOT play music.

Memos auto backup to iTunes during sync and stored in playlist folder called "Voice Memos". Deleting on the iPhone does NOT delete out of folder. App rotates so that iPhone mic is oriented toward speaker. 14. SPOTLIGHT NF#22 A FULL search option for iPhone. Search parameters are customizable under "Settings", "General", "Home", "Search Results" with 9 options. Search is activated by touching the TEENY TINY magnifying glass icon or swiping your home page to the right. I would recommend that the icon changed and moved. It merges with page dots so needs to be moved to left approx 1/2" from edge and size doubled and colored blue or similar. The search function works very well and should meet the needs of those that are search fanatics. 15. IPOD: You do have to manually select your listening source if you plan to use A2DP, the headset controls do not start/stop/skip play. The bottom menu function has not changed and you are still able to select the 4 icons you use the most. NF#23 SCRUBBER & FINE TUNNING control. User can control scrubber by sliding finger up/down on screen to increase/decrease play speed. Audiobooks has two new features: Speed control is now selected here. NF#24, 30 SECOND REPEAT.

SAFARI: NF#31 CLOSE ALL OPEN WEB PAGESnow provides a blank page and bookmarks auto open when you reopen the app. (Posted by TheSpaz) In landscape mode, the bottom bar is semi-transparent. However, in portrait mode, it's opaque. B2 BUGHorizontal keyboard works but, if keyboard is up, will not rotate and is still slow to respond but previous bug fixed. Copy/Paste works but is (IMO) a little quick to activate. Leaving finger on page for a sec or 2 now activates C/P. The delay should be slightly increased.
