  • It's "iOS" Now


    Calling it "the most advanced mobile operating system in the world," Steve Jobs announced at WWDC 10 today that the next revision of iPhone OS will be called "iOS 4." With a new name that reflects the spread of the operating system from the iPhone to the iPod touch and now the iPad, iOS 4 went Gold Master today with what Jobs said were 1,500 new features. The upgrade will be available for the iPhone 3G, 3GS, and the iPod touch on June 21 - free for the first time to iPod touch owners - and will be preloaded on the iPhone 4 when it ships three days later.

    The marquee feature of the new OS remains multitasking, and Steve Jobs showed off Pandora streaming in the background as he checked his mail during the keynote address. Mail now has a unified inbox for multiple services, as well as the ability to show sequential messages with the same subject line as threads. Apps can now be organized into folders, which can be moved, renamed, or kept in the Dock. In a first for the iPhone, Microsoft Bing is now a search option along with Google and Yahoo, though Google remains the default - for now.

    Jobs also spent a fair amount of time highlighting the new iAds mobile advertising network that Apple is launching with iOS 4. iAds, Jobs explained, combines "the emotion of TV with the interactivity of the web" and will let users "explore ads" (really?) without being hijacked out of their favorite apps."

    iOS 4 will not be available for the first-generation iPod touch. And though it can run on the 3G, it will not support multitasking.

      FYI-my 2G will only work with WiFi sync in 9.2 and it says 3.1.3 is the current firmware. So, does this mean no IOS4 for the iphone 2G or any new firmware ever?????

      this is how phones get bricked, or you lose the functionality your use to. Why didnt you just wait till the dev team released the jailbreak. IOS4 isnt that awesome that i would give up my jailbreak to get it the day its released

      I didn't try and jailbreak it. I just simply updated to ios4 from 3.1.3.

      I can wait for JB. No biggie

      Was I suppose to restore to 3.1.3 and then update?
      I just didn't know man. I'm not worried cause it's brand new.

      I'll try a restore first and see if that works...

      sorry man must have read what you were saying wrong. I would do a restore and then update it again something must have went wrong in the process or something. Good Luck

      Restore didn't work. I'm taking this ***** back tonight.
      I just got it a week ago. Gotta get it there before Apple gets wind of this.

      So... if your running 3.1.3 JB. I recommend restoring to 3.1.3 non-JB then updating to ios4.

      Hope people catch all this...

      Hmmmm. I guess I'll give that a try. I don't see why restoring from a backup would do that.

      Do not upgrade to iOS4 if you want to unlock until a JB is released!
