Ever since the Apple iPhone was released in the market, people never looked at mobile devices the same way again. With the iPhone, it literally changed the way people think about mobile phones. Today, another version of the iPhone was released in the market and this is called the Apple iPhone 3G. So, just what are the new features of this new iPhone that it may want you to upgrade?
Basically, the new iPhone 3G operates on the 3G network. In most cases, surfing the internet using the 3G network will be a lot faster than in other networks. This means that you will enjoy much faster internet browsing. However, the only downside is that the 3G network is only available at limited service providers, such as AT&T. The speed of the internet connection also depends on the coverage. You have to remember that you need to be in a place where 3G network connection is already available.
But if you do live in a location where 3G is available, then you will be able to fully enjoy what the iPhone 3G can offer.
When it comes to the case of the iPhone 3G, it’s basically the same. However, the back of the case is now made with plastic for lighter weight instead of the aluminum. There is also a grill placed over the speakers in order to improve the quality of the sound. Another great improvement is that the headphone jack was changed allowing people to use standard headphones without having to buy an adapter which can be pricey.
Another great improvement in the iPhone 3G is that it offers improved GPS service. It is much more accurate and you will be able to enjoy real time location updates and even driving directions. You will also be able to take advantage of the restaurant, bar, and even movie theater finder that this particular device offers.
However, the GPS service that iPhone 3G provides is not yet as accurate as standalone GPS devices.
Google Maps is also included in the new iPhone 3G. The only downside is that it doesn’t include turn by turn directions, which means that you have to figure it out by yourself to find where you are. And, with the GPS service, it will be easy for you to do so.
The Apple iPhone also offers new and improved syncing options, which will be able to offer syncing your device to other devices, such as an online account, the Mac, and other mobile devices. You can also sync to the Microsoft Exchange email servers.
YouTube is also offered in the new iPhone 3G. Its new features include parental control, which will be able to restrict access to some of the videos featured in this website.
If you need a calculator, then the Apple iPhone 3G will be able to provide it for you. By flipping it sideways, you will be able to turn the regular calculator to a scientific one which can be very useful in complex computations that you would normally have to do when you are in college.
Keyboards are also available for the iPhone 3G and are now offering more languages.
These are just some of the great features offered in the new iPhone 3G. With all these upgrades, you will definitely want to upgrade to this iPhone.
