  • 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!

      I am 90% certain that flash will not be in iPhone 4.0 and 5.0 maybe even 6.0.
      sure i agree.

      if its not on there than i wont be upgrading. Personally i doubt any 4.0 software will be better than my current 3.1.2 jailbroken.

      We shall see

      If Apple breaks my jailbreak, I'm getting a Nexus One. A Nexus One and a jailbroken iPhone are two comparable smartphones. A Nexus One and a non-jailbroken iPhone are nothing to be compared. Without jailbreak my phone would be useless and stupid.

      Thats it, I really hate Apples way of dealing with the User, I wonder what the iPhone 4.0 will look like, if its no major update I think of getting myself an Android Phone, probably a HTC Desire.

      Just as how they don't see pop up alerts as an inconvenience. They built it and their customers will take what they give them.

      @hnic247, OS 3.2 for the iPad is iPhone OS. Devs have had that OS (beta builds and gold) for some time now.

      Who says there's no 3.2 for iPhone? I'm pretty sure i read on iClarified that it's been released to devs or something.

      Flash isn't going to die anytime soon fyi. iPhone 4th gen better be a good update and OS 4.0, if not I'll be sticking with my 3GS or getting a HTC HD3.

      they are just making an announcement about the OS and what it will include. im sure it will be just as boring as the iPad announcement with no information on the new iPhone.

      Of course there's a 3.2 SDK for iPhoneOS, the iPad runs on it. But 3.2 will NOT be released to iPhone users. 3.2 is an iPad-exclusive system update.

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

      i think i might join you on that purchase of an htc hd3 actually the specs are absoloutly stunning.

      * 4.5″ AMOLED screen with 1280800 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
