eWEEK Labs Tests the Newest iPhone Features - The Wiggles

By Andrew Garcia  |  Posted 2008-01-16 Print this article Print

By holding down an icon for a few seconds, the widgets started to shake, indicating that I could change things around. I could delete my custom bookmarks (top), but not the preinstalled applications. I could, however, move seldom-used applications to a secondary screen, as the iPhone now supports as many as nine pages of icons (bottom left). To move an icon, I just dragged a wiggling icon to where I wanted it.


As announced by Steve Jobs at MacWorld Expo, Apple's new iPhone firmware, 1.1.3, includes features such as location tracking for Google Maps, dashboard customization and multirecipient SMS capabilities. eWEEK Labs put the new features to the test.
