Today marks the third consecutive day of new iPhone OS 3.0 beta features. That’s quite a feat. The newly discovered features include variable audio scrubbing speeds, variable playback speeds for podcasts, single-tap jump back for podcasts, and additional data displayed for podcasts.
The additional audio and podcast features were first discovered by World of Apple. The variable scrubbing speed feature will allow you to fine tune your navigation within an audio track by utilizing four different scrubbing speeds.
Podcasts received a few key additions as well. In iPhone OS 3.0 you will be able to adjust the playback speeds for podcasts to 1/2x, 1x, and 2x. In addition, you will also be able to rewind podcast playback by 30 seconds with a single tap of a button. Podcasts will display more data including run time, time left, and publication date. This is great news for all you podcast junkies out there.
Which of these new features do you think you will utilize the most? I will place my vote for variable speed audio scrubbing.
