What's next for the Apple (AAPL) iPhone? A flurry of new features -- starting with a "locate me" pseudeo-GPS function on Google Maps -- according to leaks that have been making the rounds of the Apple blogs.

The scoop goes to GearLive.com, which for the past two days has been exploring what appears to be a pre-release version of firmware update 1.1.3. The improvements (documented with screenshots) that it has discovered so far include:

* Edit Home Screen - Rearrange icons on your home screen
* Drag icons around with your finger
* Locate Me integration with Google Maps (apparently by triangulating cellphone towers)
* Send SMS to multiple people
* Add Safari Bookmarks to your Home Screen
