This week's hottest iPhone stories: YouTube on iPhone, better battery life, Bluetooth headsets, Google applications, Opera Mini browser, iPhone cases

There’s now less than one week to go until the iPhone launches in the US, and there’s only so much hype that can be reported. Much of the news has been focused on the latest tidbits of information that Apple has chosen to reveal, or has been ‘leaked’ to the press.

The big news, features wise, is that YouTube will be on the iPhone, starting with 10,000 videos converted to the iPhone-friendly H.264 format, and with the entire catalogue converted by the autumn.

Apple has updated its battery life claims – now you’ll get up to 8 hours of talk time. Impressive, if true.
