Apple just gave us all a sneak preview of iPhone OS 4, introducing some pretty interesting features after Steve Jobs did his usual numbers update at the start of the keynote. Oh, by the way, since iPad launch day, 450,000 iPads have been sold, and the App Store has hit over 4 billion downloads.
As far as iPhone OS 4 is concerned, well there were 7 new features that were mentioned by Steve Jobs in the Apple keynote announcement event…
It was on the top of a lot of people’s wish-lists for iPhone OS 4, and it was the first thing announced at the release today. Steve said that they figured out how to implement multitasking for third-party apps and avoid a drain on battery life and resources. The design of the multitasking implementation is really simple: when you’re in an app, you can double tap the home button to bring up a dock like the view of all the apps running and scroll through the list to see all the available apps you can quickly switch between.
