The new iPhone OS 3.0 software will be available to all from 26 June 2009 as a free software update via iTunes 8.2 for all iPhone customers.
iPod Touch customers will be charged USD9.95 (or AUD14.95 for Australian) for the same upgrade.
Apple says the upgrade will add 100 new features such as cut, copy and paste, multimedia messaging and a landscape virtual keyboard.
Among those additions is a "Find My iPhone" function. Working with Apple's MobileMe service, it enables users to locate their lost or stolen iPhone on a map, message their phone or activate a sound.
If all else fails, there will be a Remote Wipe feature allowing users to zap the phone's contents.
