It’s Celebration time and i ain’t talking about the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The Announcement for which all apple iPhone and ipod touch users are waiting for isn’t far away, Apple’s iOS4 Could land in our hands at any time. Apple’s iOS 4 provides a variety of new and enhanced features on a core OS level, on a developer API level, and on the surface for end users. Some of these features are limited to new hardware in the latest iPhone 4 (such as FaceTime video calling), while others are only available on last year’s iPhone 3GS and third generation iPod touch (including multitasking).
iOS 4 will not support the original 2007 iPhone and iPod touch models, and can’t be installed on iPad. Apple says a later release this fall will bring iOS 4 features to iPad users, more like the iPhone OS 3.2 that was exclusive to the iPad on its launch. For all other iOS device users, iOS will be made available for immediate download as a software update within iTunes; that’s an distinct advantage Apple holds over most other smartphone platforms, where users might wait months for a new software update to be made available by their mobile provider and for their specific phone model.
So, hold your breaths, as it can fall anytime!
