Apple revealed the OS 4 during April this year with detailed promises and magnificent features. However, reality and the image of reality can get mere opposite as well as shocking sometimes too. A few major disappointments are to be seen as well.


Most awaited and most missed feature to multi-task applications is said to be available in iOS 4. This would increase the average efficiency of an iPhone 4 user up to 60% as compared to the previous version. Now you would be able to listen to music with one app while calling via VoIP from another application. The multitasking is also available for third party applications. This would not only allow us to run multiple apps at the same time but also to switch them accordingly with ease.

Background Support

The background processes support functions are improved quite decently. This now would allow users to run applications in the background while other apps are running on the screen. Let's say you are using Skype, now for a GPS direction you won't need to turn your music off or your Skype. This means all things would go hand in hand with iOS 4.


This too is a breakthrough. With folders organizing becomes easier for you. This ability of iOS 4 will bring smile to many faces. Apple explains that dragging one app icon onto another would create folder and would get a generic name based on the app store settings. Later you can also rename. Although Apple come to this feature at a very late stage, even though this late coming would be a blessing for those who have thousands of applications in their iPhone.


The emails are also significantly improved in the iOS 4. Firstly we would have a unified inbox. Secondly it would also support threaded emails which is definitely something to be cherished upon. Not only would that but the emails also support multiple exchange accounts with faster user switching between other email accounts. These long awaited features are now available in iOS 4.

Enterprise Support

There are a couple of enhancements for the enterprise support features by Apple in the iOS 4. Apart from the exchange server mentioned above, other valuables include SSL and VPN support which are the building blocks for enterprise system security. This would give a major breakthrough for IT administration and deployment of iPhones in the businesses. Moreover the Mobile Device Management system can also be integrated with the third party servers to be used wirelessly. iOS 4 gives users more enhanced data protection with user passcode which is an encryption key to protect privacy.


The iOS 4 would give you the next generation of Apple gaming. There would be more social gaming support. Apple game centre allow developers with the help of APIs to create game apps that can also bring socializing experience like inviting friends and sharing scores. Social gaming on iOS 4 would be a worth to see sight but it would depends on the developers to use it at their best.


Apple also includes the new mobile advertising platform iAd. Contrary to what ads did to you in the past (which was awful) iAd would display ads without switching away from the application which would maintain the user interaction with the app as well as the ad. Moreover the ads can be interactive as well or can be in video form too which is definitely to yield developers a handsome share.

Text Enhancement

iOS 4 supports a few text enhancement too. Now the words which you would type incorrect would be underlined with red as seen in Microsoft office and with a tap can be corrected. Similarly text can be cut, copy and pasted to the desired location. However, it's not clear whether this feature would come to iPhone or would remain on iPad only.


The iPhone 4 which would be using the new iOS 4 would definitely have some new hardware which can be summarized as:

5 Mega Pixel Camera with 5x optical zoom (LED Flash)

High Definition Video Recording

More battery life 40% more than 3G

Same eBook reading experience as iPad

Only 9.3mm thick (24% thinner than 3G)

Front facing lens for video calls

Up to 32GB memory

What's Knot (not) changed?

The stuff that hasn't changed is YouTube account, Stocks, Weather, Voice Memo, Clock and Calculator.
