In June of 2009, at the mayhem and craziness that is the World Wide Developers Conference, Apple made some new product announcements (as it usually does). Phil Schiller, Apple’s Senior Vic President for Product Marketing, took the stage (in place of Steve Jobs, who was still on medical leave) to demonstrate Mac OS X v10.6 “Snow Leopard” and several MacBook updates.

Apple also announced updates to the iPhone with the release of iPhone OS version 3.0, including one simple feature many users had really been waiting for.

What simple, much wished-for feature was finally added to the iPhone’s capabilities with the release of iPhone 3.0?
