100+ Hidden Features in iPhone OS 3.0

100+ Hidden Features in iPhone OS 3.0

Posted June 18, 2009 at 4:02pm by iClarified
MacRumors forum user bndoarn has organized a list of over 100 hidden features found in the iPhone OS 3.0 firmware.

A Few Examples:
- There is no limit to the number of apps that can be installed (beside storage space). Once you reach the home screen limit, Apps installed after that are installed without an icon but can be accessed in Spotlight. You can also use this to hide any apple application (i.e. weather and stocks), if you get to 11 pages.
- In the Settings -> General -> Home Button you can now set the double click to the new search feature or the camera
- Notes now has data detectors. Links are clickable, phone numbers are callable, email address are emailable, and address are locatable (using Maps)
- When a phone call interrupts you, after the phone call you are taken back to the app you were in before you were interrupted
- You can now have 11 home screen pages instead of nine
- Now there is a different way to force quit apps. now you have to hold the sleep/wake button until the red slider appears, then you press and hold down the home button to quit the app

Check out the entire list at the link below...

It seems someone needs to notify iClarified that this isn't a Apple news site. Are you lost? Maybe you have nothing better to do with your life. Either way, I'd recommend writing a long letter to the author of this article explaining how off topic he/she was. Good luck to you!

"You can now have 11 home screen pages instead of nine" - This is not a hidden feature.
