Apple iPhone 3GS - iOS Gets Cut & Paste Announced: June 8, 2009

Released: June 19, 2009

Notable Specs: 3MP camera with video recording; max storage of 32GB; new voice-control features; compass; Internet tethering; and built-in Nike+ integration.

Notable iPhone 3GS Fact: The first two versions of the iPhone packed tons of unique and innovative features but they were frequently criticized for lacking some very basic functionality: Cut, copy and paste. The iPhone 3GS, which ran iOS 3.0, was the first iPhone to get these features, along with the first iOS landscape keyboard.

Sales: Apple said it sold 1 million iPhone 3G devices in the three days following its launch.
