    Apple on Monday announced that it will formally introduce the next version of its mobile operating system, iPhone OS 4.0, at a special event scheduled for this week, April 8.

    In March AppleInsider reported that Apple plans to add full multitasking support in the forthcoming release of the 4.0 software update. Sources said that the company has developed a "full-on solution" to allow multitasking of third-party applications on the App Store.

    I'm 1000% certain all you'll see is the announcement. I'd expect to see the real deal sometime about June for WWDC.

    BTW - the developer videos are really spectacular on the iPad. Wonder if they'll put out the docs now in ePub?

    Tom :)macwave:... veni, vidi, codi )

    :mental: I reckon they'll announce/release a new iPhone '4g' on the same day that OS 4.0 is actually released in June :yes: I'm excited for them to announce the new OS :D

    I doubt it'll work on my original iPhone though... might have to upgrade in June :yes:

    yep I reckon as Tom says, announcement this week, WWDC time new OS + new phone.

    The multitasking is rumoured to be done via an expose type mechanism which should work well with the ipad :yes:

    I thought the 3.0 update was quite impressive, it fixed a lot of my gripes and simple things like the cut and paste are just fantastic

    I suspect the 4th gen one will be faster (the ipad is supposedly twice as fast with the same hardware as the iphone but better memory), perhaps a forward facing camera at last. More memory I hope :lol:

    My last 3 phones before the iPhone had a forward facing camera and I must say I've never used them.
