  1. Wow I’m so pleased they finally arabic to read AND WRITE 🙂 I used to read an Arabic paper on my last Nokia (pity iPhone didn’t support it before) but writing wasn’t much fun. Can’t wait.

  2. I can’t wait for this update !!
    the images looks great too they have done a great job ..
    Thank you for sharing

  3. Thank you so much for this good news. Well I just bought Iphone 3G 16GB but still having problem in sms and arabic interface. I really like this new OS. Please could you tell me what is the release date for final version.

    • @Syed my estimate would be June or July, basically when the next iPhone is released. I guess it will be iPhone 3.75G or iPhone 3.5G 😉

  4. I tried iphone os 3.0 beta 5 and it seems it supports Arabic, but when I tried with Safari not every Arabic letter is written correctly.
    For example: the word Bi’ar, because the letter ba has kasra, hamza will be written on top of ya without dots. I couldn’t write hamza, the only alif I could write is the standing alif. Do you know how to write the other forms of hamza? There is a bug as well related to kassra, dumma, fatha ….etc.
    Any help will be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Karim

    • For the hamza characters, etc…. You actually need to HOLD on the ALIF and then you can slide to the selection you’d like.

  5. Ok i have littel question, does the 3gs iphone supporting arabic offecially???
    i nned a fast replay
