Today is June 21st and that means iOS 4.0 will be released by Apple to the masses. iOS 4 0s the new name for “iPhone OS 4”.
iPhone 1st gen. and iPod Touch 1st gen. will not work with iOS 4, iPhone 3G will work but it will not have multitasking. All other iPhones and iPod Touches should be able to upgrade to iOS 4 sometime today, if you have iTunes 9.2 installed (required). The iPad will not get iOS 4 until the Fall, too bad, since I just got myself an iPad.
Major iOS 4 updates include:
- Fast app switching
- Local notifications
- Mail: Unified inboxes, threaded messages etc.
- Custom backgrounds (wallpapers)
- Game Center
- 5x digital zoom
- Bluetooth keyboard support
