So, iPhone OS 4 was revealed by Steve Jobs yesterday, with arguably the biggest announcement being multi-tasking support. There’s lots more too; one thing I’m quite excited about is the ability to organise icons into folders. Tech website engadget installed the developer preview of the new OS version onto an iPhone. They give an overview of some of the new features in the video below.
Being an owner of a first generation iPhone excludes me from the update, but I’ll be looking to get my hands on the new hardware that’s rumoured to be released in June of 2010. Speculation mounts of new iteration’s features, and there continues to be growing momentum around a higher resolution screen, better spec camera (perhaps with flash?), and a front-mounted camera. I’m pretty excited about the next version, and think it’ll complement the new OS perfectly.
