Back in April we featured a sneak look at the new iPhone version 4. Today, Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple, formally unveiled the iPhone 4. It features an even slimmer design, a front facing video camera for video calls, a more detailed screen, an inbuilt gyroscope and a faster processor. Read about the iPhone 4 at the Apple website.
iOS 4 – The new name for the iPhone operating system
Also coming soon will be the next version of the iPhone operating system, now to be known as iOS 4. This is advertised as ‘coming soon’ and will also be available for the iPhone 3GS and 3G (but some of the key features will be unavailable to the older 3G version). Multitasking will allow multiple apps to run at the same time. Apps can be handily organised into folders, desperately needed for those suffering from screen after screen of apps. And you’ll be able to customise your home screen background. Read more direct from Apple about iOS 4.
Personally, I’ll be stuck with my 3GS for the time being which I’m still loving to bits. I wonder if the sleek pebble design of my 3GS (shown below) might still have more aesthetic appeal than the rather chunky design of the new iPhone 4 (shown above). You’ll need to handle one to confirm the truth of this.
