Predict here what date the 2.0 update in July will happen.

I'm going for the 8th.

I literally can't wait, my birthday is on the 29th so this will be like a late birthday present to myself :p

NEVERMIND, APPLE HAVE CONFIRMED IT WILL BE OUT JULY 11TH

JJ, Cloverfield is talking about the 2.0 software, not iPhone 3g. Cloverfield, there's a rumor that it might come out late this month actually, on the 27th. However, it's my bet that it comes out on the 11th as well.

Thank you John, I didn't realise JJ thought I was talking about the new phone.

It would be amazing if it really was the 27th, but why would he say early July if it was...unless, since the keynote, things have gone faster or something? I really hope it's not the 11th though :( that is a long time a way and no where near 'early' july. It's 4 days away from mid July.

i also saw the rumor about the 2.0 release on 6/27, which would be fabulous. i'd love to get a sneak peek of the 2.0 firmware on my current iPhone before getting the 3G one.

but i think it would make sense if they released it a little before the 3G iPhone goes on sale to spread out the possible store traffic and support needs a bit between the two (if both are released on the same day, their genius bars and tech support lines would feel the crunch, versus if the 2.0 firmware were out a little sooner)...

Well, you would have to suppose that 2.0 is finished for it to be on the 3G units that will be shipping to meet the 11th deadline. Therefore, 2.0 could conceiveably be out before the 3G hits the shelves... by as much as two weeks or so. So the 27th isn't unrealistic, but the 1st or 8th of July seem like better dates since Apple updates almost always seem to come out on Tuesdays.

Like Cloverfield, I am super impatient in anticipation of the App Store opening. I really hope we do see it up and running before 7/11. I also agree with Macgirl's comments above that from a support perspective, it makes a lot of sense to open it at least a little in advance of the iPhone 3G phone launch.

I'm hoping something like that 6/27 date proves realistic ...

Should not have to, this thread subject states it for me.

Date predictions of 2.0

And yes it is the correct date. I had a dream. I looked at the clock. It was 7:27 am. hence, July 27

based on Apple's stinginess, I don't think it'll be out before the 11th.

and especially now that it seems they're real trying to prevent iPhone2 unlocking, it will keep them ahead of the hackers as much as possible.

Exactly. While I would like to have the firmware 2.0 before the 11th, I don't think it'll happen. JMO.
