There has been a lot of talk about the new iPhone 3.0 firmware. Rumors are flying about new features and stunning new bug fixes. But no one really knows when it is coming out. Some say a month some say a year. Apple has not set an official release date but we may be one step closer to finding out that crucial day.

     Chris Johnston, an online blogger, just made a post on his blog about his incident with his iPhone.  He says he was on the phone with a support representative from Apple trying to fix a problem with his iPhone. The representative told him that the new 3.0 firmware would be released in the next week and this might help him fix the problem with his device.

     If what the Apple representative said is indeed true, that would make the release of the new firmware around the time of the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) which is taking place from June 8 through June 12.

     We are still unsure if the information about the release date is legitimate, but since it came from Apple we have more reason to believe it.  This phone conversation took place within the last couple of hours at about 09:00 p.m. Thursday June 4, 2009 in GMT.
