iPhone 4 launch day came and went and Number Four has taken over. Today, as the dust settles, we hope to move away from the hype and take a clear-headed look at whatís new in the iOS4. No, this isnít a full-featured iPhone 4 review, nor is it intended to introduce you to the OS basics.
Instead weíll stick to the new stuff. And Apple promised lots of that: multitasking, homescreen wallpapers, a revamped email app, and more. Here is our brief scoop on all the new stuff and all thatís still missing.
With the iPhone itís never about what the phone can or cannot do. The iOS 4 however seems finally determined to catch up with most of the todayís smartphones. Youíre not to expect miracles though Ė such as a file browser, USB mass storage mode, web Flash support, and other stuff that seems irrelevant to Apple.
Anyway, weíve tested iOS 4 on both an iPhone 3GS and a 3G. Itís worth noting that a lot of the new features arenít available on the now discontinued iPhone 3G. Worse yet, the iOS 4 is heartbreakingly slow on the 3G. We somehow feel though that the average iPhone user is way more likely to go straight to Number Four than bother install the latest OS on an older device. Or at least thatís what Apple would prefer.
Anyway, itís time to start our iOS 4 tour.
The folder animations on 3GS are fast and fluid, while on 3G you can notice a slight lag. Still we are happy Apple didn¬ít cut them out of the iOS 4 for 3G users.
why i can't put a pattern security code?
iPhones are good but android phones are the best. It sucks when you have an old version of IOS coz you cant download any apps im the appstore, you need to upgrade it. iPhones are expensive thats why i still prefer android phones. Its really annoying ...
