  • 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!

      Speaking of that why is it so hard to implement a basic feature,you say MMS is outdated everyone does not use a smart phone with email. Now on the other hand all of the so called great Apple products are short of being great because of the lack of features. I can go buy a metro pcs phone and it will have all the things Apple put into the iPhone now 3 years ago. I'm not saying that i don't like these products but they are short of what we want and more of what Apple want us to have.

      Ill doubt they ever put flash ever but i think it would be cool if they add a folder option to put apps in folders. i know i have the catorgies but it would still be cool for those with out jailbroken i phones

      i disagree with that, it is much faster/easier to send a picture when you are having a conversation with someone than it is to compose an email put in email address, attach the picture then send. you are already talking to that person so no need to do all that especially before push notifications were put in you never knew you had email unless you refreshed it or had it set to refresh every so often where mms is almost instant. plus what rickybobby said not everyone has a phone that can send/receive email

      If No0neimportant is right and iPhone does not get 3.2, 4.0 is guarenteed to be a huge update. All the .0's are significant changes. Multitasking is a must, but I do not believe will happen due to the fact it uses up ample amounts of battery. They would have to make the battery bigger, making the battery bigger they would have to make the backing bigger, thus changing the style of the iPhone... With this theory I believe it will come with the next version iPhone.

      I think before they change the look n style of the a "bigger battery" i could see them making their own expandable batterry case that you would have to buy.. kinda like the one for 60$...

      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.
      Yeah I agree. There hasn't been enough rumors about the hardware. Seems like it will just be an OS upgrade.
