    Question iPhone OS 3.0 Release Date? [Poll Inside]

    I suppose we will all know a expected release date possibly this upcoming Tuesday but what do you think, when will we see the new software?

    I'm thinking it will be similar to last year:

    March: Preview
    June/WWDC: Demo and release announcement
    July: Release

    While you are probably right I'm hoping for a release a bit sooner. Hoping...

    I agree with Rene, but am hoping if there is no new hardware they release 3.0 sooner.

    Haha, actually I haven't voted yet, but I think thats the date I'll pick when I do add my vote. I guess I'm not in a rush since I'm not eligible to win the new iPhone and even if I was it would come out of my pocket anyway

    Default The cynical view (Who me???)

    They will push it back till after the one year warranty expires on the bulk of the first sale early adopters. That way when they brick their phones it won't cost Apple too much to replace them.

    But seriously, pre-announcements of iPhone software releases has been so rare we are all left guessing what this means.

    Yeah, I'm in the same boat here. I'm all for a software update, give us better functionality with our current hardware. A new hardware update isn't out of the question, but I'll also be ineligible for it even if I pay out of pocket, too. I'd be stuck on the sidelines if something huge comes out.

    @icebike:

    They showed 1.0 at Macworld, January 2007, then released in June

    They showed 2.0 at SDK Roadmap, March 2008, then released in July

    I think early preview, midyear release is pattern-ish and in line with Schiller's iPhone release cycle being "June"

    You don't think there will be a hardware update with the launch of 3.0? I think we could at least see a bigger storage iPhone. 32gb?

    I would like a lower ATT plan. That would be the upgrade to lure over!

    I've heard early summer, so that could be the end of June (since summer starts after the 21st or 22nd) or in July sometime. I'm excited!
    I just bought my iPhone 3G last Friday and the reps were excited about the new release, no exact date just early summer he said.

    I am going to say July because they almost always are released coinciding with a new iPhone, so that would only make the most sense. (in my head anyways)
