  • 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!

      nope. 4.0 won't affect any current jailbreak. In fact the dev team and others won't even attempt to jailbreak the 4.0 betas until official release with the new iPhone in July.

      Got this Saturday from the Dev Center, Looks interesting. Hopefully 4.0 will have some new goodies

      Downloads
      SDK 3.0
      iPhone SDK 3.2

      iPhone SDK 3.2 includes the Xcode IDE, iPhone Simulator, and a suite of additional tools for developing applications for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

      Thanks I was confused. I was excited because my 3G on 3.1.2 is giving me no service issues. So I thought it would be fixed on 4.0

      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.
      I still think the 4G is going to be excellent, I mean, 4.0 and the 4G could have been in the works for a long time, cause the 3GS was a pathetic upgrade and seemed like a placeholder or decoy(if you will) to me, and Apple knows darn well that the competition will DELETE the iPhone if this year's upgrades suck(and you know how much Apple loves, wait HAS to BE on top.

      I'm curious to see if the new OS will be released on all versions of the iPhone/iPod touch.

      I'm guessing this isn't the full thing and will only be available to devs

      The next firmware desperately needs a UI overhaul I mean the iPhoneOS looked fine back in 2007 but 3 years later it's really starting to show it's age and it looks pretty much childish next to some of the newer phone uis that are coming out

      Hold tight, my friend.
      not actually. the userland jailbreak uses a hole in Safari which Apple knows about now....EVERYBODY knows about the huge security lacking there as there were multiple articles that covered this. So we all know they will make safari more secure, which is why i highly doubt this 3.1.3 userland jailbreak will work on 4.0

      Oh thanks, I don't recall that, but it was over a year ago now!

      I don't mean this towards you, but can we put this to rest? iPhone OS 3.2 WILL NOT be available for iPhone, no matter how hard certain MMi members with 12 posts try to tell me it's not an that I'm "an idiot."

      I think it may just be a ploy to detract and also build up a new hype for when it's time to release the 4G...

      Who cares what number it is? Call it 3.2, call it 4.0, it's the next version. Don't get your panties all twisted.

      What Apple said was that 3.2 does not support the Iphone or Touch. It doesn't. Doesn't mean it won't in the future.
