Fact or Rumor: New iPhone OS To Be Revealed Next Week
That's the big news in the iPhone world today. Yesterday we reported that the new iPhone OS could be revealed on January 27th. Now it looks as though the big reveal is a done deal as this information is widely believed to be based on fact more than it is a rumor.
From PC World:
Fox News posted an article Monday claiming that not only will next week's now-confirmed Apple event play host to the long-rumored tablet unveiling, but it will also see the next iteration of Apple's iLife software on show. Fox's report also claims that Apple will discuss the next iPhone OS update.
Naturally, the invitations emblazoned with the words: “Come see our latest creation” have everyone whipping out their highest hopes for the occasion.
The article by Fox News' Clayton Morris is boldly titled "Apple Tablet, iPhone 4 Launch Confirmed for January 27th" (never mind the fact that it's always iffy to "confirm" any new Apple product until Steve Jobs stands onstage with it), and goes on to detail a conversation Morris allegedly had with an Apple source early Monday morning.

Let's just hope it's got some good additions and updates.

they will not reveal os 4.0. it will traditionally alongside the (possible) release of a new iphone.
dont ask me how i know this. there is word that there will be an os 3.0 update! (putting the software at either os 3.4 or the half mark, os 3.5 which will have a few significant upgrades.)

I think everyone has sky high expectations for 4.0. I really hope the home screen, notifications, and just general interface get completely overhauled. I think Apple will do right by us and we'll see something special in 4.0.

@ForumSnoBorderRK - The reason iPhone OS 4.0 is possible is if the tablet will run a modified version of the iPhone OS for App Store compatibility. They would then release this update alongside the release of the TABLET... not the next generation iPhone.

They will announce the new features in 4.0 and release the SDK for developers so they can optimize their apps for a higher resolution on either 3.gen iPhone or the new Tablet, properly both...

They could unveil a new iPhone and release it in June. They did that with the first iPhone.
Anyway I still believe there won't be a tablet or at least not what everyone is expecting. It just doesn't make sense to me. But if there is really a tablet good for people who are hyped about it. I personally am not.
I'm pretty sure the big news will be the iPhone 4G. The 3G and 3GS were such small updates and I believe Apple planned something big for the next iPhone. I really hope my prediction of a real 16:9 screen is true. That would be why the 4.0 SDK allows to upscale apps.
Front facing cam and flash I hope And there will be one other big secret no one knows about. I think the iPhone 4G will own all the other phones for good. But yeah wait and see.

Apple may also reveal the iPhone 4.0 OS due to the increased competition in the smartphone sector.#eli7e revived me

peep this yall:
That’s right, y’all. We’re back at it, and this time we’ve received some exclusive iPhone OS 4.0 details from one of our trusty Apple connects.
Here are some iPhone OS 4.0 features, according to our guy:
* There will be multi-touch gestures OS-wide. (Would make sense for that as the rumored OS for the iTablet is close if not the same as the iPhone)
* “A few new ways” to run applications in the background — multitasking.
* Many graphical and UI changes to make navigating through the OS easier and more efficient. We haven’t had this broken down, but we can only hope for improved notifications, a refreshed homescreen, etc.
* The update will supposedly be available for only the iPhone 3G and 3GS, but will “put them ahead in the smartphone market because it will make them more like full-fledged computers” more than any other phone to date. Everyone is “really excited.”
* The last piece of information is the most vague, but apparently there will be some brand new syncin
Apple iPhone OS 4.0 features detailed! Also, Apple calling tablet the iTablet? Boy Genius Report

I wonder if Steve will be on stage front and center for this...give us iPhone and iPod Touch users something to drool about. No more dashed hopes like last years iPhone refresh. Bring the big apples, the competition is heating up."To unpathed waters, undreamed shores." -- William Shakespeare
