    iPhone OS 4.0 announced (available in summer)

    Over 1500 new APIs coming in iPhone OS 4.0
    Developers can now access the calendar and photo library.
    A new framework called "accelerate" gives hardware accelerated math functions.
    iPhone OS 4 will ship this summer (as expected).
    100 new features for users.
    Users can create playlists, have a 5x digital zoom, tap to focus on video, gift apps to friends/family, geotagging, places in the photo app, change homescreen wallpaper (like with iPad), Bluetooth keyboard compatibility (also like iPad).

    7 major features
    1.MULTITASKING.
    "We weren't the first to this party, but we're going to be the best. Just like cut and paste."
    Apple has found a way that won't make the phone feel sluggish or reduce battery life.

    Double click the home button to pull up a row of icons at the bottom of the screen showing running tasks. Jump between them easily

    2. Folders to arrange your apps.
    can make a folder
    Folders are automatically named based on the category the apps come from.
    Selecting a folder icon drops down multiple icons. Folders can be added to the taskbar too.
    Dragging one app on top of another automatically makes a folder with the two apps in it.

    Home screen wallpaper changeable on the iphone (like the ipad)
    Like the iPad, you can have two separate images for lock screen and home screen.

    feature 7 - iAd (I'm not expecting to like this)

    Building advertising right into iPhone OS 4. (yep already I dont like it)
    This is a way for developers to make money off of their free apps.
    "Most of this kind of advertising sucks," Jobs says of current mobile ads.
    60% of revenue goes to the developer. (so 40% to apple for doing nothing, not a bad gig if you can get it!)
