While the new iPhone OS 4.0 is set to bring a lot of great
changes to one of the most popular electronic devices ever created, not all
users stand to benefit equally. Nobody should skip the upgrade, but some
categories of users will benefit more than others. This is an overly-simplified
breakdown of the situation, but it should help iPhone owners understand what
they can expect from the upgrade.
What will OS 4.0 bring to the iPhone? First and foremost: multitasking. Apple has finally found the last piece of this puzzle, 카지노사이트 – 카지노사이트쿠폰 – 카지노사이트추천 and
their dev team figured out how to let iPod and related devices run more than
one app at once, all without killing the battery. A double-click on the Home
button will bring up a screen of currently-running apps, and a second click
will focus on the target app instantly. Early reports say this new multitasking
support is surprisingly efficient though beware, users will be limited to
running 4 apps at once.
Other new features include a few enhancements to the user
interface. Users will be able to arrange apps inside folders, change the
background behind the icons, and store up to 2,000 icons instead of the current
This class of iPhone users stands to benefit the most. The
new Multitasking will more than quadruple the power of the iPhone, and 카지노사이트 – 카지노사이트쿠폰 – 카지노사이트추천 will
reduce the amount of time it takes to complete every-day tasks. Increased
security measures, like the ability to encrypt emails, and PIN codes, will
certainly benefit enterprises. The new unified inbox system in the mail app
will also benefit business users, letting them manage multiple email accounts
Again, the new multitasking support means a big change in
how the iPhone operates. Casual users can now stream internet music through
Safari while reading an iBook, for example. The ability to customize the
iPhones interface even further by changing the background will make the device
even more personal. A host of other new features, 카지노사이트 – 카지노사이트쿠폰 – 카지노사이트추천 from the ability to rotate
photos to a new 5x zoom on the camera, will all come together to make OS 4.0 a
big step-up for casual users.
This class of user stands to benefit the least from the
upcoming iPhone OS 4.0. Apple is excited about the new Social Gaming Network,
but time will tell how this system will pan out. Flash is still not supported,
so it means that a lot of the best online games are still not going to work.
Fortunately, many game providers are offering alternatives online games designed
specifically for the iPhone. Many
casinos, for example, offer real-money casino games like slots and poker
that will run inside Safari, letting gamers take things to the next level by
putting a few dollars down on their skills.
3G and the second
generation iPod touch owners
Sorry, 카지노사이트 – 카지노사이트쿠폰 – 카지노사이트추천 because of your outdated hardware, you wont be able
to take full advantage of some of the new features that OS 4.0 will bring. Most
notably, your device will not support
the new multitasking feature, so you will still only be able to run one program
at a time.
Original iPhone and
iPod touch owners
No luck here. The first-gen devices simply wont support OS
4.0. Owners of these devices should really consider an upgrade.
What about iAd?
One new feature that will be introduced with OS 4.0 is not
going to be as welcome as the others: iAd. This new mobile advertising system
will introduce in-app advertising. The system will allow full-screen video and even
interactive advertising content to be launched from within an application,
without the need to send the user out to Safari to offer this sort of content.
In a way the new system will be less intrusive than before, but at the same
time it might just open the iPhone up to even more spam.
Overall, previews and hands-on reviews of the new OS 4.0 are
very positive. Most users stand to benefit on at least some level from the
are left in the dark are owners of older devices and of course those poor
souls who dont yet have an
