However, the phone had access to a decreasing proportion of new features with each update as its hardware became superseded by later models.
When it was launched, the i Phone 3G came preloaded with i Phone OS 2.0.
The i Phone 3G's operating system supports the geotagging of photographs.
In addition to EDGE, the i Phone 3G supports Assisted GPS, 3G data, and tri-band UMTS/HSDPA.
In addition to other features (including push email and turn-by-turn navigation), this new operating system introduced the App Store—Apple's new distribution platform for third-party applications.
