Some iPhone OS 4.0 features leaked; Apple’s tablet might be called iTablet, not iSlate
Apple’s new iPhone OS 4.0 will surely not be officially unveiled before January 27 – however, some of its features have already appeared on the Web.
First of all, according to Boy Genius Report, OS 4.0 will probably be compatible only with iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS (and the upcoming iPhones, of course), so those who still have the first-generation iPhone will be forced to buy a new one if they want the latest software.
Reportedly, iPhone OS 4.0 will bring “multi-touch gestures OS-wide”, lots of UI and graphical enhancements, and a new syncing feature (related to your contacts and calendar).
Another rumor points out that the Apple tablet will be simply called iTablet, not iSlate, as previously believed.
How much of this is true? We’ll find out next week.
