I updated to the iPhone OS 3.0 GM (Gold Master) build last night.  This one is supposed to be pretty much the final version, very close to or identical to what will be released on June 17th.

Haven ‘t had a huge amount of time with it yet, but so far there ‘s really not much to report in terms of differences from Beta 5 “ there are a couple things though

One new item that can now be seen, and that we knew was coming, is a ‘Redeem ‘ action under a new ‘More ‘ tab in the App Store app.  You can now use redeem codes for apps on the iPhone itself.  When I first tried this out last night, it gave an error on trying to download the app, and suggested getting it when syncing with my PC “ but when I retried this morning, it downloaded and installed just fine. 

Overall the phone feels just a little zippier with this build, but that ‘s just a feeling and after only a little time with the new build, so could easily be wrong.

Memory leak issues do not appear to be resolved as yet.  The iPhone seems like maybe it is coping with low memory a tad better, but the available memory is still running down too quickly.
