What’s New? Multitasking Receive Push and Local Notifications Photo Geo-tagging iAd Calendar Access Map Kit Improvements Photo Library Access Video playback & Capture iOS 4 will work with iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS.Not all features are compatible with all devices. For example, multitasking is available only with iPhone 3GS and the third-generation iPod touch.
Multitasking Now you can run your favorite third-party apps, and switch between them instantly, without slowing down the performance of the foreground app or draining the battery unnecessarily. Multitasking is accessible by double-tapping the Home button. You can stop running applications in the multitasking tray, similar to the process for deleting an application from the device. Multitasking can be used for applications with features such as, audio streaming, VoIP and GPS.
Multitasking In Real Time In previous versions of the iPhone OS, if you are working on email and there's a link to a web page, clicking on that link will open Safari and close Mail. Then, once you were done watching that web page, you close Safari, get back to the main iPhone menu, click on the Mail icon, and go back to your mail. With iPhone OS 4, Mail will keep running while Safari opens. To go back to Mail, the user just needs to double-click the home button: A dock will then slide in from the bottom of the page, showing the running apps. The Mail icon will be there, and clicking on it will instantly get back to where you left it. In previous versions, Skype needs to be open to receive calls. In iPhone OS 4, Skype can keep running in the background to receive calls. It doesn't matter you are surfing the web or playing a game: You will be able to pick up the call switching instantly to Skype have a conversation for as long as you want, and then return to your browser or game just where you left it.
Listen to Audio in the Background Now you can listen to audio from compatible third-party apps while checking email, surfing the web, playing games, and performing other tasks. So when you want to follow a ball game or listen to music from Pandora, your productivity never skips a beat.
Third-party apps such as Skype let you make voice calls over the Internet.
Multitasking in iPhone 4 makes it possible to receive these Skype or VoIP calls while other apps are running, even when your iPhone is locked.
And during a call, you can keep the conversation going while you switch to another task, such as checking a movie listing or reading an email.
Keep GPS Apps Running Apps that use GPS can continue to run in the background. Not only do they constantly update your position, they can also give you spoken turn-by-turn directions even as you listen to music (the music volume lowers while the directions are spoken). It’s perfect for social networking apps, too. Now you and your friends can find each other even when you’re not actively using the app.
Receive Push and Local Notifications Third-party apps and services can send alerts and messages directly to your phone. So you can get sports scores, news updates, game requests, reminders, alarms, and more the moment they happen, without having to open the app that’s providing the notification.
iPhone 4 geotags your photos as you take them. So you can browse them based on where they were taken.
To see all the photos you took in London, for example, tap the Places button, then tap the pin on London.
You can even zoom in on the map to see places within London where you took pictures, such as Trafalgar Square, Big Ben, or other landmarks.
Apple's new mobile advertising platform, combines the emotion of TV ads with the interactivity of web ads. When users click on mobile ads they are almost always taken out of their app to a web browser, which loads the advertiser's webpage. Users must then navigate back to their app, and it is often difficult or impossible to return to exactly where they left. iAd solves this problem by displaying full-screen video and interactive ad content without ever leaving the app, and letting users return to their app anytime they choose. iOS SDK 4 lets developers easily embed iAd opportunities within their apps, and the ads are dynamically and wirelessly delivered to the device. Apple will sell and serve the ads, and developers will receive 60 percent of iAd revenue. iAd
