More proof points to the fact that the iPhone OS 4.0 is coming soon. Rumored to be unveiled on January 26/27, during the Apple tablet-dedicated event, the upcoming iPhone OS has apparently been confirmed by a “prominent app developer.”
The rumored email from said developer basically said that their application has been updated for the new iPhone OS 4.0 software. As always with these kinds of news it might all be just too good to be true. But then again, Apple hasn’t issued a software update for a while now.
Other rumors say that Apple has refrained from updating the iPhone OS in order not to reveal details about the upcoming iSlate tablet. That should prove again that the tablet is basically an iPhone on steroids which could potentially run on an iPhone OS version.
Last year we told you how some app developers have been asked by Apple to make full-screen versions of their apps which would be ready to run on the tablet. While those rumors haven’t been proved, when looking at the whole picture everything seems to get more meaning.
Basically we can expect Apple to roll out its tablet at the end of the month and also launch iPhone OS 4.0 at the same time. Once the tablet and the new mobile software version are out we might find more details about the upcoming iPhone.
The phone itself is not out just yet and I don’t think it will arrive earlier than July. While certain carriers do say that an early April launch of the iPhone 4G is possible, I think it’s highly unlikely for that to happen. Apple is probably waiting for everything to fall into place according to its own needs before launching the new phone. One of the main arguments against an early iPhone launch would be the AT&T exclusivity deal. Apparently Apple is waiting for it to expire before revealing the new iPhone to the public.
So there you have it, folks, while iPhone 4.0 OS might be coming in the following weeks together with the tablet, the iPhone 4G will only land later this summer.Read More.....
