iPhone Firmware 2.0 May Be Released June 27 (Update)Apple, iPhone, iPod, Rumor June 11th, 2008
Update: According to Apple the App Store is still coming on July 11.
No one has mentioned any hard dates yet as to when firmware 2.0 will be released for the iPhone and iPod Touch. But, Apple may have inadvertently leaked the date with an image appearing on the Australian iPod Touch Features pages.
The image above can be found here and clearly states June 27 as the availability date, this contradicts the “early July” that was mentioned in the keynote.
It’s a shame that Apple can’t get it out any earlier, I’m sure every iPod Touch and iPhone owner can’t wait to get their hands on some of the apps for the devices.
As an aside, I just received a $50 iTunes gift card for my birthday and it is probably going to be primarily spent on iPhone apps, so hopefully I’ll be doing some reviews of the more interesting games. Expect those reviews shortly after the App Store launches.
