Last week news leaked that Apple was testing iPhone 2.1 software, a software update for the device (and iPod touch) that is expected to introduce stability and feature improvements.
The update, as indicated, includes new features in the Core Location framework and that could be implemented to create applications that are truly sensitive to GPS position, such as speed and direction tracking during a trip.
The software also incorporates new Push Notifications APIs that would allow applications to access the processing of notifications in the background, a feature initially promised for its debut.
Now additional information indicates that the software will also provide support for cut, copy and paste operations.
There is no precise information on the date corresponding to the final availability of the 2.1 software for the iPhone.
