Apple iPhone 3G gets iTunes boost

8 January 2009 — 4:56 PM

Consumers recycling used mobiles in order to get the latest phones may be interested in some improvements that will affect the iPhone 3G.

Apple announced this week during its Macworld conference that its iTunes service, the online music and video resource accessible via its mobile phones, will receive a number of improvements.

Most notable of these will be the introduction of iTunes Plus, which will allow iPhone 3G users to get their hands on DRM-free songs that are encoded at a higher rate of 256 kbps to offer better quality.

It was also revealed that the iTunes pricing structure is set to change from April this year, with more music available at the store's lowest price.

Steve Jobs, Apple's chief executive, commented: "We are thrilled to be able to offer our … iPhone 3G customers the ability to download music from iTunes anytime, anywhere over their 3G network."

The iPhone 3G is available on pay-as-you-go as well as O2's latest contracts.
