[news] iPhone OS 4.0 – Feature List

9 04 2010

iPhone 4.0 OS was unveiled to the public yesterday in the US, and it will ship in June (and Fall for iPad). Below is just a quick summary of the new features:

  • Multitasking & Fast app switching –> because now certain apps can ‘run’ in the background and all apps can be frozen (vs killed every time you close it)
  • Local Notification –> notifications can be sent between apps on the phones
  • App folders –> Yeah! less clutter 😛 Now users can organize 2160 apps. Still a long way from enabling someone from owning all 140K apps
  • A new Mail apps –> enabling unified in-boxes from multiple exchange accounts
  • iBooks –> Apple’s own ebook reader apps with accompanying ebook store
  • custom backgrounds –> they are finally here for non jailbroken phones
  • Game center –> a centralized gaming service, like Xbox live
  • iAd advertising –> now ad goes to your iPhone instead of you needing to follow a link. Yuck!
  • 5x digital zoom
  • bluetooh keyboards –> finally the supports goes to iphone.

You can watch the keynote at this link.
