iPhone OS 3.0 Gold Master is finally released for members of the iPhone Developer Program. As a registered developer I have downloaded and installed iPhone OS 3.0 on my iPhone 3G. As a developer I also signed an NDA with Apple (non-disclosure agreement). So I cannot disclose any information about it until the release date and I will respect that. Do not expect our review of iPhone OS 3.0 until the official release on June 17th 2009.
