  • iPhoneOS 4.0 Finally To Be Revealed Thursday


    At long last, the elusive, highly-rumored-about iPhone OS 4.0 is to be unveiled this Thursday at 10 AM PST (1 PM EST). Apple has sent out invitations to various media sources about the keynote, so you can expect many Apple liveblogs, like Gizmodo, Engadget, and MacRumors to cover the event as it unfolds.

    If you've been around the iPhone scene since last year, you'll remember that Apple surprised quite a few of us with some features we began to think may never hit the iPhone, like copy/paste, MMS, and stereo Bluetooth. Could multitasking be that big ball-drop this year? We'll just have to find out!

      Great, but this is surely nothing but a teaser and it will be a good few month yet until release...

      what are you laughing about and where did you get that false info? Websites have already begun making their sites HTML5 compatible for iPad.

      * 4.5″ AMOLED screen with 1280×800 resolution
      * 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
      * 1080p HD video playback
      * 720p HD video recording
      * 8 megapixel camera with dual-LED flash
      * Multi-touch screen
      * Super-thin – just 10mm thick
      * WiFi, Bluetooth and 3G connectivity
      * 4G connectivity for for blisteringly fast downloads that are over ten times as fast as today’s HSDPA phones
      * 1GB onboard RAM
      * 1GB onboard
      * 32GB external memory
      * 3.5″ headphone jack
      * HDMI output for connecting to your HDTV or monitor
      * 1800mAh battery for super-long battery life
      * Bigger screen than the HD2, but a smaller overall physical size: 115mm x 65mm x 10mm

      i hope the next iphone packs a punch as good as this as i really do enjoy a jb 3gs but the above stats will take some beating
      Those specs are definitely sick but i can already see where phones are going. now it's 4.3 but it'll get bigger once ppl get used to it. Then the phone itself will become larger. Then it won't even be a phone anymore because it's going to be playing video games and connected to a T.V. I mean damn...what happen to using a phone as a phone? HDMI output on a phone? I guess i can see a use for that. Oh well..

      2 questions:

      1. Will the beta be released to devs following the keynote?

      2. Is this earlier than the 3.0 announcement? The new iPhone (presumably) won't be out for 3 and a half months...

      This is later than the 3.0 anouncement as this was done during march but I presume it has been delayed due to the launch of the ipad.

      You can already multitasking on the iPhone, it's called backgrounder. The reason Apple didn't give the iPhone the abilty to multitask in the first place is due to battery life.

      Do you think they'll start doing 4.0 beta fw every 2 weeks like they did with 2.0 & 3.0?

      On the other hand, the 4.0 announcement could be a way to push the sales of the remaining stock UNTIL 4G.

      Eithe way, I feel bittersweet about this.
      What are you talking about? They are riding the iPad publicity wave into iPhone 4.0... pretty smart of them.

      since we now have 3 different versions for the new iPhone... 3,1 3,2 and 3,3... I can only assume the Verizon rumors are true.

      3.0 was also in testing about 3 months before the hardware came out, otherwise they wouldn't have had any new special launch apps to show off the new hardware.

      For the skeptics, send me a PM once you update your iPhone to 3.2. We'll see how many PMs I get.

      If OS 4.0 is coming out on Thursday. Does this mean a new jailbreak and unlock should be coming out Thursday or so?
