File Sharing revealed in iPhone OS 4.0 Beta 3!

Yesterday morning brought the release of beta 3 of iPhone 4.0 and along with the release, a major new enhancement that included an orientation lock and iPod widget controls. However that was not all that beta 3 of iPhone firmware 4.0 delivered.

File sharing abilities have now been revealed in beta 3 of iPhone OS 4.0. Using a very similar process as that found on the Apple iPad, users can now move files to and from their iPhone using their PC or Mac. Using iTunes, users access the “Apps” area of iTunes and just below the list of available applications is an area dedicated to file sharing.

From this new area users can now drag or import their files from their Mac or PC into iTunes and then sync with their iPhone. If files are on the iPhone already, users will use this file sharing area to move the files from the iPhone to the PC/Mac.

Since the feature is still in development, it is difficult to say whether or not it will make the final cut, but considering that the Apple iPad has this functionality, it is very likely that file sharing will be debuting in iPhone OS 4.0.
