Second gen iPhone screengrab shows 3G data toggle


If this screenshot is legit, then you’ll be able to turn 3G data off to conserve battery life on the new iPhone. Apple sure has thought of everything, huh?

The image was posted on a blog called Chronic Productions which, after a cursory search, appears to have little (if anything) to do with Dr. Dre and more to do with software development.

AppleInsider reminds us all that Steve Jobs cited poor battery life “as one of the primary reasons his company passed on the inclusion of the [3G] technology in the inaugural iPhone models,” so perhaps this setting is his way of splitting the difference.

Of course, we’d hope that the new iPhone would have improved battery life to begin with, rendering this new setting to nothing more than a mere convenience.
