iPhone OS 4.0 to include over 100 new features

Apple’s iPhone OS 4.0 event is on the verge of wrapping up and Jobs delivered plenty of good news for iPhone users. Over 100 new features will be included in the upcoming OS, some of which will likely change the way you currently interact with your phone. The major highlights include: Multitasking (finally!), the ability to create folders for your apps/games, iBooks for iPhone and iPod Touch, enhanced mail (all your mail will be in one inbox), the launch of Apple’s own version of Xbox Live (dubbed Game Center) and much much more. Here are some of the other more noteworthy 4.0 features and enhancements :

  • Playlist Creation
  • 5x digital zoom
  • tap to focus on video
  • Gifting of apps
  • Change the homescreen wallpaper
  • Bluetooth keyboards
  • Search SMS/MMS messages
  • iPod out
  • Websearch suggestions
  • Birthday Calendar
  • Choose Image Size in mail mesages

There is certainly a tonne of stuff to digest from the 4.0 event. Not only will we be seeing multitasking and folder support this summer, but it seems 4.0 is ready to take the iPhone to the next level. So, is OS 4.0 pretty much what you expected?
