So today, we've shown you a whole new line of MacBook Pros, Snow Leopard, really our first public demo, Scott showed you iPhone OS 3.0, and I've shown you the iPhone 3GS."

"But that's just the start of our show here at WWDC..."

"I'd like to say as we leave, thank you to everyone who has worked so hard on these products."

And that's it folks...

12:01 AM - Engadget
"So when does the iPhone 3GS become available? Just a week and a half." June 19th!

"After that even more countries, over 80 countries will have it by August."

12:00 AM - Engadget
"The iPhone 3GS... just $199."

16GB of storage, and $299 for a 32GB version.

Black and white... no colors.

"But we want to reach even more customers. So we're going to keep the iPhone 3G on the market... at $99."

11:55 AM - Engadget
"And something businesses have asked for... hardware encryption. All new iPhone 3GSs will have it."

"All this... and yet we've improved battery life as well." Up to 5 hours 3G talk time, 9 hours of WiFI internet.

Also a greener device. 23% smaller packaging. "The 3GS -- the most powerful iPhone yet."

11:55 AM - Engadget
"There's also a built-in digital compass. The compass app is a new one that comes on the iPhone -- you can tap to go right into Maps, and if you tap a second time, it will orient the map to where you're facing."

Accessibility: "We have some great new settings on the 3GS -- it can read text, you can zoom in the display, invert black and white..."

"We've also built in support for Nike+" Nice!

11:54 AM - Engadget
"There's another great feature -- we call it voice control. You can hold down the home button, and a brand new UI pops up -- the voice control interface."

"And talk about easy to use, the commands you make are scrolling by as you use it."

"You can make calls with your voice, you can control your iTunes by voice."

"I can ask my phone, 'what's playing now' and it'll speak the title and artist back to me."

11:52 AM - Engadget
"And you can share it with anyone, I can tap share and send it in an email... if my carrier supports it, I can send as an MMS." Nice jab at AT&T.

"Best of all for devs, there's an API for this. Build video capture right into your apps."

11:51 AM - Engadget
"So how does that work? You go into the camera application, select if you want to do video, 30fps, VGA, with audio... auto focus, auto white balance."

Video demo. Wow -- it looks great. Really high quality.

"When you go into the app, you can see the video and scrub along with your finger... you can also edit it with a tap of your finger."

11:48 AM - Engadget
7.2Mbps HSDPA...

Brand new 3 megapixel autofocus camera...

"Amazing hardware and software which works together. Auto focus, auto white balance... and we have tap to focus... you just tap on what you want to focus on."

Macro as close as 10cm away, and better low light performance. "And there's an API for developers. But the best thing about this camera, is that it also captures video..."

11:46 AM - Engadget
"This is a really fast iPhone. Something as simple launching messaging, 2 times faster... everything is faster. These are all speeds against an iPhone 3G."

Up to 2 times faster across the phone, but not with everything.

11:44 AM - Engadget
"To call the iPhone 3G a hit would be the understatement of the year. It's changed how people think about their phones. It wasn't that long ago that we were so frustrated with these... crappy devices."

"It's changed the things people want to do with their phones."

iPhone 3GS!!!!!

11:43 AM - Engadget
"We think you'll love 3.0 -- it's free for iPhone users, $9.95 for touch users. And it will be available June 17th."

"For developers -- we're giving you the GM seed today.""And that is iPhone OS 3.0."

"And with that, I'd like to hand it back over to Phil."

11:37 AM - MacWorld
Final demo from Line 6 and Planet Waves. Together, they let you control your guitar and your amp at your next gig. Marcus Ryle. Using accessory framework you can connect iPhone to connect amp and guitar. Can choose the amp style. "This doesn't run on compressed air, but it could still have some technical issues." Can also adjust treble and bass. Can also change what kind of guitars, change into acoustic. "That's not acoustic." Whoooopsie. You can design your own guitar. You'll all have to go to Line6.com to hear what it actually sounds like. Change the tuning of the guitar without using a tuning peg. You can move the frets around—apparently it sounds impressive when it works.

11:34 AM - Engadget
Zipcar. "We're excited to introduce our app today. Jonathan (who is demoing the app) doesn't own a car. The application immediately locates him, and it shows him where the nearby Zipcar locations are."

MacWorld - Green pins indicate available cars. Tap on a pin, up pops name and number of cars. Instantly see Zipcars in any lcoation. Gives him a list of the cars, and you can set cars as favorites. Tap Reserve, pick a time, and duration. And you can tap the horn icon on the iPhone to have it beep the horn for your car, so it's easy to find and you can unlock the car from the iPhone. That's Zipcar on the iPhone.

11:31 AM - Engadget
Another demo. Pasco. A science app which shows off theory / experiments. Ha! Scott just came back out in a lab outfit. He's going to perform an experiment...

Uh oh -- demo isn't working right. "Where's the rapid increase in pressure?" "The rapid increase in pressure is right here." Points to himself. Too bad the demo didn't work. "Sometimes these things happen, but we can show you how this flatline zooms quite well." Laughter and applause. Well played sir.

11:26 AM - MacWorld
Star Defense (like Tower Defense but, you know, in space). Expansions is the word of the day here. Major new content and feature packs. Just a few dollars more for extra content. Push to play challenges allows you to play online. Launching today, but 3.0 features will come when iPhone 3.0 launches (uh, hey guys, let us know when that will be, huh?).

11:22 AM - MacWorld
TomTom. Man, we have been waiting to hear from these guys for year. Both application and accessory integration. Peter-Frans Pauwels. Using new features in iPhone 3.0 to deliver real TomTom navigation as a true iPhone experience. Plan a route from Moscone West to Sausalito. Best route at the best time of day. And it has the voice cues. Demo looks a little jerky. Create an optional accessory that's like a little cradle that suctions into the window. Not just a holder, it securely docks iPhone, and you can flip it into landscape. Thanks to accessory framework, they can enhance GPS, also give you hands free calling, power, and a loudspeaker. Both will be available this summer, with a range of maps.

Bringing up several developers to show what they've been able to accomplish with iPhone OS 3.0. First, Gameloft.

Mark Hickey from Gameloft is unveiling a new game, Asphalt 5, which he claims will be the best racing game on iPhone. Lets you play music from your library while you drive, advanced lighting and graphics -- fully pushing the hardware, Peer to Peer multiplayer over Bluetooth, worldwide multiplayer over wifi in-game voicechat, content packs for sale (1 racktrack and 3 new cars for 99 cents). Next demo, Airstrip.

Airstrip lets medical professionals monitor patient medical data. The medical community is flocking to the iPhone because of apps like this. Showing their next app, Critical Care.

App supports custom Push notifications based on parameters you define. Shows a live monitor of the patient's vitals from anywhere.

11:12 AM - MacWorld
Accessories. Opening up ability for hardware developers to build software apps for their accessories. LifeScan said it would build a companion iPhone app for its OneTouch glucose scanner. Will calculate how much insulin you need to take for your next meal.

Companion apps can talk to accessories via dock connector or over Bluetooth. Use standard protocol or create custom procotols to talk to your own custom hardware.

Cocoa Touch control to embed Google Maps, including satellite and hybrid views, directly into your applications. This control is heart of the Maps application, and you get everything you expect, like pan and zoom, custom annotations, current location, geocoding. Developers can build turn-by-turn direction applications using Core Location.

Push Notifications are *in* iPhone OS 3.0. Generic push notification service for developers. Allows developers to push things like scoring alerts, as well as instant messages. Three types of notfications: text alerts, badges, and custom alert sounds. A few of the more than 1000 new APIs that make up SDK for iPhone OS 3.0.

11:08 AM - MacWorld
1,000 new developer APIs. Starting with in-app purchase. Allows developers to make financial purchases from within the app, enabling things like magazine subscriptions and additional game packs. Business terms are the same as apps on the store. Free apps remain free, so you can't give away a free app and then charge for additional content.

Support for Peer to Peer networking. Peer to Peer support automatically finds other client over Bluetooth, no pairing necessary. Great for any application that wants to form peer to peer connection between two devices.

11:06 AM - Engadget
Find My iPhone. "This is a great one. If you've ever misplaced or lost your phone, it can be... somewhat traumatic." Ha! A scene from 30 Rock.

"Hopefully you haven't had a 30 Rock experience, but this is why we created Find My iPhone. If you lose or misplace the phone, you can login to MobileMe on any browser and it will show you where the phone is." Wow -- big applause.

You can send a message to the phone. You can send a message to your phone which plays a sound as well, whether or not it's in silent mode. "If you're like me, and it shows you that your phone is at your house, the alert still plays until you find that your kids hid it under the couch."

"Now, if it is lost or stolen, you can send a remote wipe command which will delete all of your data."

11:04 AM - MacWorld
Languages: ship a single OS around the world, localized into every language supported. Multilingual customer running in English can switch to a different language on their keyboard. Support for even more languages in iPhone OS 3.0. Hebrew and Arabic (yay). Greek, Korean, and Thai. Now support more than 30 languages in iPhone OS 3.0. Every one of the languages has both portrait and landscape keyboards.

11:03 AM - MacWorld
Suport for HTTP streaming audio and video. This protocol picks the right bit rate and data quality for your current connection: EDGE, 3G, or Wi-Fi. HTTP, so it can go through firewalls.

Autofill, can optionally remember usernames and passwords for websites (thank the lord). Contact information on your phone can help you fill out web forms. So: great performance, HTTP streaming, auto-fill, and HTML5 support in Safari on the iPhone. Adding support for emerging standards like audio and video tags.

11:01 AM - MacWorld
Wow, Apple's giving AT&T the stick today. All unsaid, of course, but the list of carriers that support tethering on iPhone 3.0 is huge, and yet... AT&T isn't in there. Are we seeing Apple negotiating its next carrier deal in public?

11:01 AM - Engadget
"We've also added support for iTunes U right on the phone. Next, important additions to parental controls. We've added control over a number of items, most importantly, ratings control for movies and TV, as well as apps."

Tethering! "This allows you to share you connection with your computer."

"This works with Macs and PCs, wired over USB, or wireless with Bluetooth. It is a seamless experience. There's no need to run any software once it's turned on. This requires carrier support. We have 22 partners in 44 countries..." No mention of AT&T. What!?

10:58 AM - Engadget
"29 carriers will support MMS when we launch... AT&T will be ready at the end of the Summer." Laughter. What? End of Summer? You're kidding us, right?

"Next up, Spotlight. You can search anything on your phone, including apps. Next, iTunes. You'll now be able to rent and purchase movies right from your phone."
