The most exciting feature launched in iPhone 3.0 was the ability to cut copy or paste text. Double tapping on text would give you a bubble dialog with above mentioned options. Double tap again to paste something on the clipboard. If you've pasted something by mistake, don’t get annoyed just shake your iPhone to get rid of it. You can attach it with your computer as a modem to access Internet. Other features include: shake to put on the shuffle mode in music player, automatic Wi-Fi log in, landscape keyboard, extended parental controls and many more. iPhone4.0 came up with much awaited multitasking in which some applications could run in background.
