iPhone OS 4 Video Walkthrough

Share:

Yesterday we saw the preview of iPhone OS 4. It’s coming this summer and we can all look forward to multitasking on our iPhone 3GS units and more. If you missed the keynote, you can watch the live streaming video which has been posted online by Apple.

9to5Mac has filmed a short video documenting a brief walk through of iPhone OS 4. I think the new Folders feature is brilliant (you have to be insane to have over 2000 apps), along with multitasking, and the unified inbox with message threading. Oh, and don’t forget VoIP in the background with apps like Skype (maybe they’ll release their 3G version soon?).

What are some of your favourite iPhone OS 4 features you’re looking forward to?

    It looks good so far. Just a bit disappointed with the notification system being the same, thought there would be a home screen change. It's nice that now you can keep MSN and so on running all the time but how are you notified of a new message? Doesn't seem like it would matter whether it's running this way, or running the old way with push notifications, since you still need that badge to pop up and tell you you have a new message. I'm most looking forward to being able to keep Sirius and so on playing music and switch to texts. Nothing worse than using internet radio at a party and having to stop the music when someone texts you!

    how did they install 4.0 already???

  • Developers already have access and can download and install on any dedicated OS 4 Beta testing device. Because the software is still in Beta, it is under the Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA) between the developer and Apple.

    Discussing OS 4 Beta unannounced specifics and certainly releasing a video is in contravention of the NDA, though.

  • Developers have access to 4.0
