Google Street View on iPhone
If this report from Gizmodo.com is to be believed, then the answer is yes. According to this report, by November 21, Apple will release a new iPhone/iPod Touch software: Version 2.2.
What’s new about it?
- Google Street View for Google Maps– you know, like on the T-Mobile G1 where you can view real images of certain streets? You can also see it on your computer here
- walking directions and bus schedules in Google Maps– great for when you need a GPS to help go somewhere
- Over-The-Air Podcast downloads- download all your podcasts straight to your phone/ iPod.
We still don’t know if the infamous absence of the Copy/Paste feature will finally be added, but the updates is only 10 days away so sit tight :) .
What you think- you excited for over-the-air podcast downloads and Google Street View? Would you rather see Apple add a different feature (if so what feature)? Let your voice be heard in the comments.
(Note: this is just a rumor— previous rumors said the update was coming in October; for all we know, the update might make the iPhone a webcam or something…I think somebody just started a rumor lol ;) ).
