Apple: iPhone OS 4.0 Reportedly to Include Multitasking
Apple (AAPL) plans to offer a “full-on solution” for multitasking in version 4.0 of the iPhone OS, according to AppleInsider. An inability to run more than one application at a time is one of the most frequent criticisms of the iPhone OS–and the ability to multitask is often touted as a point of differentiation by rival handset makers. The new version of the iPhone OS is expected to launch this summer.
The story is attributed to “people with a proven track record in predicting Apple’s technological advances.”
