This is great news! With the iPad on the block makes no sense for the iPhone not to have some basic features. I'm tired of the Home Screen, its the worst ever!

They will also be improving notifications like sms and other push notifications. I read where there will be icons at the top of the phone to let you know what notifications you have.

The funny part about Apple's updates to the iPhone, is that they are basically looking at the jailbroken apps that increase the iPhone's functionality and slowly including them in their updates.

What kind of apps/tweaks have they taken from the jailbeak community?
airrick - April 8, 2010 at 11:50am
first and BIGGEST thing taken from jailbreak community... VIDEO RECORDER!
Nick - April 8, 2010 at 12:34pm
This is from my knowledge only (so there is most likely more than what I'm going to list): MMS, landscape SMS, the ability to Search files on your iPhone, Video Recording, copy and paste functionality, Tethering, Numeric Battery (even though it's on the 3GS only), and I'm sure there are more. Apple probably knows exactly where they want to go with the OS, but they are only going to implement new features here and there to keep the masses coming back for more and paying more money to either buy the new iPhone which is the only version that will support some features (like the 3GS and video) and the iPod Touch and iPad people now to pay for the next big updates.

very good rundown Nick! lol... now we have the ability to run 3GS specific features (ie recorder) on other phones.. straight from the app store.. isn't it odd that they just weren't "compatible" at first? Apple better really "bring it" this time around or i can really see people getting tired of all the smoke bein blow up their asses! just my thoughts of course..

They copied the jailbreak community by adding a video camera? I am pretty sure they "copied" other phones... They Probably just realized it was stupid for them not to have it.

So when is this going to be released to us?
Nick - April 8, 2010 at 10:29am
If it's anything like the 3.x update, they released it a few weeks before they actually released the iPhone 3GS, so I wouldn't expect it until around June.

yeh i'd imagine so, although the impending widespread release of the ipad makes it a little more interesting, since that uses the same OS, maybe they'd push it out slightly earlier to encourage purchase of the ipad? doubt it, but who knows

Iphone 4.0: - Video App for all devices - Better battery management - Better GPS usage - Multitasking - More motion control options - New baseband - Auto-hands free option (when putting phone away from face it goes hands-free) my guesses!
Steve - April 8, 2010 at 4:48am
no to new base band they cannot even jailbreak 3.1.3 so def no baseband update
traveler - April 8, 2010 at 7:45am
And how is an auto-handsfree option going to work - i.e. scan you face?! ;-)
intruso - April 8, 2010 at 9:05am
The hands free should use the proximity sensor... when you take away the phone from your ear, the proximity sensor detects and turns into hands-free :D it would be nice!
boreddrummer - April 8, 2010 at 12:10pm
they can jailbreak 3.1.3 and it's baseband i think, they just don't wanna release it since there's the new OS coming out, why waste a jailbreak method on 3.1.3 (which is a nothing update) and then have them fix it before the big update. I think the idea is to just use the method on 4.0 when it's released and hope apple haven't spotted it by then

This should be interesting...

I hope they don't let us down again and again and again.
