iPhone OS 4 About to Drop?
A new report suggests that iPhone OS 4.0 could be close to release, months before it would normally be expected. Apple has heretofore only released new firmware with new phone models. However, CNET reports that a "prominent" app developer says he's got the new SDK and has updated his app already. In the past, Apple has provided developer previews in March for new OS versions that are then released in June or July.
Rick Broida, who writes iPhone Atlas for CNET, noted today that he had gotten an email from a dev claiming that he's got a hold of iPhone OS 4.0:
iPhone OS 4.0 is imminent. At least, that's the only conclusion I can draw from an e-mail I just received from a prominent app developer.
The message includes the following snippet: "Just wanted to give you a heads up that we've submitted an updated app for the new iPhone OS 4.0 software."
The website iPodNN had noted speculation on Wednesday that the iPhone OS update was being held back until the tablet was announced because the build contained too many references to the still-unannounced device.

my guess is flash, hd support, and maybe a couple other features we have to jailbreak for, don't forgot we won't get everything or 5.0 would be boring

4.0 released straight after the event on the 27th.
All devs prepare apps for the tablet launch in march which will have access to the app store in some capacity.

Am I one of the only ones who is not happy about this ?
I feel like ths means that yet again we will get another update like 3.0, which will have anywhere from 2-5 very very minor updates that should have been in the last update. I'm tired of apple stretching things so that they can see a new product the next year.
I want updates yes. but i was kinda hoping theyd spend a lot of time on OS 4.0 and we see some real improvements.
If we get tablet support and contact icons, im gonna flip, that is something that does not require all this hype or a new version, thats a minor change at best.

Apple need to do something about the Push notifications on the lockscreen in 4.0, only the latest one shows, say you got an SMS earlier on in the day and then you get a notification from the eBay app and you didn't check your iPhone, only the eBay notification will show and not the SMS, I hate when that happens as I get notifications from loads of apps and I don't unlock the iPhone to check them so important stuff like missed calls and texts get left behind!!!!
Also in 4.0, Apple need to allow more Bluetooth support so I can control my PS3 with my iPhone!
Also ability to change the UI from grey/blue to any colour I want and the SMS bubbles!!! How hard can it be????
