Those lucky French. The iPhone landed on French soil merely a week ago and it seems that Apple is already prepping an iPhone firmware update. The new v1.1.3 firmware is rumored to be getting the final touches to launch on Saturday, December 8 – and we’re expecting an Apple-sanctioned voice-recording application and a disk-mode function. Thanks for the great “Vnotes” app, Erica Sadun. We’ve been using your application to great effect over the past few months, but if Apple brings their own voice recording app to the iPhone, we’re going to have to jump ship and use the official Apple app. Oh, and disk-mode? Be still our geeky hearts!
Here’s the translated text from Cnet France:
“According to various rumors, it’s next Saturday that should leave the new firmware of the iPhone. This version 1.1.3 provides two major innovations: dictaphone function and the ability to use the telephone as an Apple hard drive. Indeed, the version 1.1.3 of the firmware, due at the end of the week, will mark a turning point since the iPhone will dictaphone and can be used as an external hard drive. ITunes requires, it will be impossible to directly transfer music and videos as with any other player. However, we can transfer documents more easily and content of the telephone network will be accessible. “
We’ve got high hopes for this rumor. After all, the new features aren’t exactly groundbreaking, and they’re completely in line with features that we’ve expected from the beginning.
Give it a few days, we’ll have our answer soon enough.
