Apple’s holding an event this Thursday – April 8th – to preview the upcoming iPhone OS 4.0
Oh boy – this it turning into a ‘no time to catch your breath’ sort of week. The iPad hit the stores, and now Apple’s going to grace us with a preview of the next major operating system update that will be applied to both iPad and iPhone.
This is cause for major excitement as well (if any of us have the capacity for that after these last few weeks) – since many of us have big expectations for what iPhone OS 4.0 will deliver. Biggest of those being a greater level of multitasking ability – including the ability to let at least some 3rd party apps run in the background and some elegant way to switch between running apps smoothly and quickly.
More on iPhone OS 4 wish lists later – what we know for now it that the Apple event is set for this Thursday at 10AM Pacific time. I’ll certainly be tuning in to all the usual liveblog spots that cover it (will post details for those before Thursday).
