The latest iPhone 3.0 beta has brought with it a few minor but notable features to the platform. Here's a quick rundown of the newly discovered functions:

• Variable speed track scrubbing
• Variable speed podcast playback (.5x and 2x)
• Single-button 30 second podcast rewinding


• Close all Safari windows at once
• Battery Indicators feature percentages (numbers, not just bars)
• Expanded data detection (phone is more apt to hotlink emails and numbers)
