Those looking to recycle mobile phones and buy a new iPhone have been told what to expect from the handset's latest software upgrade.

Apple has this week presented the blueprint for its iPhone 3.0 operating system (OS) and is promising a range of improvements to make the handset more user-friendly.

It advised that when it is made available to users later in the year over 100 new features will be included, such as the ability to search the handset for files and folders, as well as landscape text and email messages.

Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice-president of worldwide product marketing, said the latest version of the OS would keep the company "years ahead of the competition".

"The new iPhone OS 3.0 is a major software release packed with incredible new features and innovations for iPhone customers and developers alike," he added.

Apple recently announced an upgrade of its smallest portable media player, the iPod Shuffle.
