New features of Apple's next-gen smartphone

At first glance, the Apple iPhone 3G S may not appear to be much different to its predecessor the Apple iPhone 3G and the original Apple iPhone, but Apple's newly unveiled smartphone offers a slew of new features plus speed. Here's a gallery of the new arrivals.

Apple iPhone 3G S: Better Graphics, Better Battery Life

Apple's next-gen iPhone shifts to the OpenGL ES 2.0 3D graphics standard, which means games and other graphic-heavy apps should look significantly better than they did on the 3G model.

The iPhone 3G S also claims longer battery life, meaning resource-heavy apps shouldn't drain your phone's juice quite as quickly.

Apple iPhone 3G S: Cut, Copy, and Paste

Perhaps one of the most sought-after features in the iPhone, Apple's 3G S model finally delivers cut, copy, and paste functionality throughout the iPhone operating system.

One of more than a hundred new features introduced in the Apple iPhone 3.0 OS update, cut, copy, and paste will let you select a block of text, HTML, or photos, then paste it into other Apple-created applications.
