iOS 4 coming 21st of June

Those of you with iPhones have something juicy to look forward to:  iOS 4 is to be released on the 21st of June.  iOS is the new name for iPhone OS, the iPhone’s operating system.  iOS is currently at 3.1.3.  Version 4 is a major upgrade and promises some really nice new features such as:

  • Multitasking – run more than one app at the same time and switch between them
  • Folders – group apps together
  • Mail improvements – unified inbox (all emails from all accounts in one inbox), more than 1 exchange account, open attachments in 3rd party apps, organise by thread (like Gmail)
  • iBooks – eBook reader and online store
  • Creation of playlists on the iPhone rather than in iTunes
  • 5x digital zoom
  • Tap to focus video
  • Faces and Places in Photos - view photos based on who’s in them and where they were taken
  • Home screen wallpaper - change the background wallpaper on your Home screen
  • Gift apps - send apps as gifts to your friends or family
  • Spell checking - built-in spell checker works in Mail, Notes and other apps
  • Wireless keyboard support - pair a Bluetooth wireless keyboard with your iPhone

Sounds pretty good.  If you have an iPhone 3 or 3GS, or iPod Touch (not 1st generation version) you’ll get the benefits.  Unfortunately, the iPhone 3 won’t support multitasking and perhaps a few other features too.

Once it’s out you should be able to download it in iTunes and update your iPhone with it.

See for more info.
