Search? On an iPhone? Have pigs suddenly learned to fly? Whatever the case, it seems that the new firmware update for the iPhone could indeed feature a search feature, making it much easier for people with larger than life contact lists.
Shown here is a quick shot from last week’s event wherein Steve Jobs formally announced the SDK (software developers kit) for the Apple iPhone and iPod touch. The search icon — a standard magnifying glass — can be seen just above the letters on the top-right, but the interesting thing is that this icon was not visible in the actual demo. Instead, it could only be seen from a still screenshot.
Chalk this one up as a rumor for now, but if you want to delve into a little deeper, take a close look at the SDK video at about the 9:30 mark.
