(Pic taken from wind.fm)
This morning I stayed up at 1AM in order to check out the live updates for the Apple iPhone OS 4 Event. A sneak preview of what’s new in the new iPhone OS 4. Well everyone is waiting for this announcement.
First feature during the announcement, I think is every user wanted to have, Multitaking. Yes finally this feature is checked in iPhone OS 4. (Wishlist checked). During the event they did show how is the multitasking work. By just press the home button twice and it will trigger the multitasking bar at the bottom of the screen.
Another new feature is called as Folder, now user can group the apps in a folder. So user no need keep flipping the screen. Also announced is the feature where user able to change the homescreen wallpaper. Unified EMail, now you can have all in 1 mailbox for your email. iBook that featured in iPad now is port over to iPhone too. Enterprise, a feature more toward the data protection. Game Center, sort of like XBOX LIVE where you can have multiplayer for gaming. Lastly is the iAd which is pretty cool for mobile ads.
All this 7 new features is announced during the event and guess what, this is just 7 out of 100 over new feature in iPhone OS 4. So more to come….
The iPhone OS 4 developer beta kit is availabe now and the iPhone OS 4 will be available in Summer 2010. So I assume by then the next iPhone will announce too.
Now the OS is ready and just waiting for the next generation of iPhone, as they already check out the developer kit, found out the feature for front camera and LED Flash is in too. So I think is time for a change as most of my wishlist for iPhone already checked.
