Developer sources familiarizing themselves with betas of Apple's iPhone 3.0 software have uncovered a handful of additional tweaks and improvements to the system in recent weeks, including changes to Safari's window handling, new battery status indicators and notification preferences, as well as the advent of data detectors in certain apps.
- Safari now lets you close the last active window replacing it with a blank page.
- 22 new png files have been included in the lastest build which will act as a numerical representation of remaining battery life.
- A new push notification preference pane lets you enable or disable any of the three types of notifications: Sounds, Alerts and Badges.
- Additional data detectors have been added to OS 3.0 which identify text fragments like email addresses, phone numbers, and street addresses inside different applications. You can then touch these fragments to perform different functions. (ie touch a number to call it).
