    iPhone OS 4: Hidden Features


    When Steve Jobs gave us a preview of Apple's next generation iPhone OS - iPhone OS 4, he talked about only 7 major features such as*multitasking, folders, better mail app, iBooks, New Enterprise features, Game Centre and iAd*out of the 100 new features.*

    But the fun part is to discover the features that Apple didn't mention. So in case you haven't stumbled upon them already, checkout some of the hidden features in iPhone OS 4.


    We have already reported features such as ability to search for content on the web and Wikipedia directly from Spotlight, iPad-like spell checker, 5x digital zoom, Bluetooth Keyboard support, custom homescreen wallpaper and more.*

    As developers dig deeper into iPhone OS 4 beta, many more features are coming to light.*Here is a list of the new features discovered so far.*

    Cellular Data Toggling: You have an option to toggle cellular data on or off.*



    Messages Character Count: You can turn on the 'Character Count' option in Messages Settings in order to keep a tab on the number of characters while typing a message.*



    Text Messages Search: iPhone OS 4 extends the iPhone's inbox search feature to text messages. You can finally search through your SMS messages.*



    Camera Zooming: As reported earlier, users taking a picture from their iPhone will now see a sliding bar at the bottom of the screen to zoom in and out while taking a picture (up to 5x digital zoom). Alternately, tapping on the screen will also allow users to zoom in and out while taking a picture.*



    Web and Wikipedia Search: As we had reported earlier, the global search screen on the iPhone now has two additional options - 'Search web' and 'Search Wikipedia' to let users directly search for content on the web and Wikipedia.*



    Document Border: Previewing documents on the iPhone will now display these files without the borders. This is expected to help squeeze in an additional pixel or two of content.*



    Add New Contacts: The Contact window on the iPhone looks more streamlined in iPhone OS 4 allowing users to enter more details about the contact without navigating away from the main screen.*



    iPhoto Syncing: iPhoto users can sync their photos to the iPhone via Events, Faces and Places. This will work for the iPad too.*

    Lyrics Data Toggling: A new global toggling option gives you the ability to turn the display of lyrics on or off.*



    Photo Resize Option: Users sending large-size image files via email can choose to resize the photo on the go by selecting from the four different file size options.*



    Add Playlist: The current on-the-go playlists will be replaced by the 'Add Playlist' option in iPhone OS 4 that will be automatically synced back to the users' iTunes account.*



    Album Info: Browsing albums have traditionally displayed the tracks and the shuffle option. You can view the album thumbnail, track count, length of tracks and album release date.*



    Location Services For Apps: You can enable or disable location services for each location based apps via*Settings -> Location Services. Also, you also get visibility on the apps that have most recently accessed this information using the compass arrow icon.



    Email Threading: *You can organize emails by thread in the Mail app just like in Gmail. Email threading option can be turned on or off via*Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendar and turn on or off the 'Organize By Thread' toggle (this feature was demoed during the iPhone OS 4 event, the screenshot shows you how it can be enabled).*



    Longer Passcodes: Passcodes will no longer be limited to just 4 numbers. You can set a more secure*alphanumeric and longer*passcode for your iPhone. You can currently use the iPhone Configuration utility*to achieve this.*



    Alerts On App Folders: iPhone OS 4 gives you the ability to sort apps into folders. When any of the apps inside a folder receives an alert, you'll be informed of the same with an exclamation point over the main folder icon.

    The adding of faces, location, etc to the photo app will be nice. I just got done this weekend of setting all the normal faces in my iPhoto album for my iPad.

    I laughed cause upon going through them it kept tagging paintings of Jesus that my grandparents had in the background. So in my list of faces I added Jesus for the kicks of it.

    Two things I was hoping to see and either haven't figured out yet or they don't exist are the ability to select differrent tones for mail and text messages and the ability to reply on screen to a text similiar to how you can with bitesms.... That's one of the things I've missed the most ever since I got my 3gs and it hasn't been jailbreakable....

    agreed. its the little things that are so basic that apple forgets. they need more up to date ringtones as the current ones suck major.
