    Default iPhone 4.0 Gets Multitasking, Bluetooth Keyboards, 5x Digital Zoom... and More!



    This morning, Steve presided over a dev preview of iPhone OS 4. And he didn't disappoint.

    The new iPhone OS, which will serve up more than 1,500 new APIs, comes packed with a plethora of awesome, long-awaited features: a social gaming network, advanced eBook reading features, the ability to create playlists, 5x digital zoom, tap to focus on video, geotagging, homescreen wallpaper changes, bluetooth keyboards, spell checker, and more.

    After the hype and a little stroll down iPhone/iPod/iPad memory lane, Steve Jobs finally spoke the words we've been waiting to hear. The iPhone will support multitasking. "Now we weren't the first to this party," said Jobs, "but we're gonna be the best. Just like cut and paste."

    So what took so long you ask? According to Jobs, the team at Apple has been toiling for many month on implementing multitaksing in a way that won't obliterate the iPhone's battery. And, based on the demonstration today, it appears that Apple succeeded in giving customers what they want without exacerbating another longstanding problem in the form of a weak battery.

    So here are the seven services for multitasking: background audio, voice over IP, background location, push notifications, local notifications, task completion, fast app switching. For the demonstration presented, it was awesome to witness how the OS 4, for example, makes it possible for you to obtain directions from a GPS app while still rocking out to the music from the iPod app.

    It's evident from the details provided thus far that Apple has clearly endeavored to give customers many of the features they've demanded at long last. And it also appears they've done so in a very thoughtful, efficient manner that not only satisfies the iPhone user base, but also significantly advances the power and potential of the device itself.

    This update almost removes the need to jailbreak.
    I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather... Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.

    So I still am not sure if I am completely understanding... If your app doesn't fall under one of the seven categories you can't run in the background? is that right?

    sure we could do all of this before with our jailbreak, but apple sure makes it a lot cleaner. Won't feel as badly if I lose my JB

    Now all the jailbreak community needs is an Adblock for iAd.
