    is it possible that when you plug in the iPhone to register with iTunes it will load in the software at that time?

    Thats what I'm hoping for....but also possible we'll see a 1.5 for iPhone 3G, with the juice features coming at the end of the month.

    I agree too.. I imagine the app store will be launched with only some of the bigger company's apps as the launch foundations.. and release the final sdk to the rest of the developers at wwdc so that more apps begin to populate the store within weeks

    i was sort of thinking that as well but their servers would be going insane, but on the other hand if the phones have been sent all over the world(as some reports are saying) the new firmware would have had to be on them.
    tomorrow will be fun!!!
    :D

    edit - another reason to think 2.0 will be on the new phones is the millions of us who have iphone 1 will also want to download 2.0 so the servers will be very very very busy

    If they did ship with 1.5 and you'd have to upgrade to 2.0 via iTunes, who bet Apple would charge for it?

    Anyone who thinks that "Free software update" means that a charge is forthcoming.

    seems like if they charged for it it would kinda kill the whole "free" part of it :rolleyes: jobs has made it pretty clear that touch owners will always have to pay for these major upgrades and iphone owners will not..

    I doubt the 3G iPhone will come with OS 2.0 preinstalled. Think about it, there are supposedly going to be millions of these things at launch, they've already been manufactured, packaged, and shipped overseas to Apple. Yet iPhone OS 2.0 isn't final yet - what, are they going to flash all the millions of 3G iPhones sitting in their warehouses? No, chances are it'll have good ole 1.1.4 preinstalled, and iTunes will let you know that your OS needs upgrading.

    ^That is more than likely NOT the case. Firmware 2.0 has been ready for a while now, and has shipped with ALL 3G iPhones.



    If you don't believe me, then please tell me how i am suppose to use 3G with my 1.1.4 firmware.

    Is Apple going to give me a "3G HACK" CD/DVD with my purchase?

    By upgrading over iTunes like I said, duh. But we know as a fact that Firmware 2.0 hasn't been ready for a while now, they just released a new Beta of it a little over a week ago.

    So it comes with 1.1.4, and the first thing you have to do to the iPhone is upgrade it's firmware?


    That's not how it will work.


    And that was the SDK Beta, NOT the firmware. The a new version of the beta firmware hasn't been seeded in weeks, even over a month i believe.

    Any 3G iPhones that have already been boxed up will probably have some earlier software on them whether it be a modified 1.1.4 or a preliminary 2.0 version. The latest 2.0 build released to beta testers was released on May 28th, so that doesn't give them much time to re-flash thousands of iPhones if there is indeed a launch this week. But then again, it's all a matter of timing...

    Pretty much every release of a new SDK beta version has coincided with a new 2.0 firmware release. Actually the 2.0 firmware was usually released to enterprise beta testers a day before the developers got a hold of it. Last beta release, 5A308, was seeded just 11 days ago on May 28th.

    No need to reflash if once you've got the phone Apple basically force you to get the latest iTunes, (and then) forces you to get the update for the phone...
    Having to update your iPhone as soon as you've got it isn't the best start to a purchase though.

    Iam not sayig that iPhone2 will not have 2.0 firmware. But 3G is hardware not software. Could still use 1.1.4 on a 3G phone different modem version however.

    Nope, not the best way to do things... but if they are launching this week I see no other way around having customers flash their new iPhones when they get home to activate it.

    I'm guessing it will still need to be able to place calls out of the box, at least to 911. That was the case with the 1st gen iPhone. Is it an FCC requirement that all phones be able to reach emergency services whether they're currently active or not?

    apple will be stupid if they rewrite 1.1.4 for iphone 3G. they would have to add GPS support, 3G, video conferencing (possibly), and other stuff JUST to cover the new hardware for a FEW WEEKS. 2.0 already has the new iphone's hardware support.
