With so much focus on the upcoming 3G iPhone it's easy to overlook improvements to the current device that is still happily used by hoards of geeks around the world. The new beta version of the iPhone v2.0 update sent to select business partners reportedly adds a new geo-tagging feature.

Pocket-lint says that location based services like Maps and Camera now ask permission before transmitting data to identify the location of the user. The iPhone Software 2.0 is set for release in June.

This is the same time frame for the release of the 3G iPhone. Maybe Apple is holding the firmware to give those stuck with the first gen iPhone something to be happy about rather than making them mad because they just bought an old version.
