So today's the day that the world gets to try out Apple's updated operating system, before the iPhone 3G S goes on sale on Friday. However, there's still no official word at what time this update will be available to download. Twitterer Richard Lai has been busy surfing the net checking Apple's websites around the world and believes that the OS 3.0 update will be available in the UK between 5 and 7.30pm this evening coinciding with a global launch. This is due to the fact that Apple India says the update will be available today, while Singapore says the 18th, leaving our mathematical friend Richard to tally up the various time zones before proposing his UK guestimate.
The iPhone OS 3.0 update means current iPhone 3G users will be able to record video for the first time, cut, copy and paste text, enjoy a horizontal virtual QWERTY keyboard experience and pair up to wireless headsets with onboard A2DP Stereo Bluetooth.
We'll be bringing you are own thoughts on the iPhone OS 3.0 operating system soon, but in the mean time, we'll be glued to our PC to see if Richard Lai's prediction is accurate.
