It's no secret that iPhone OS 4.0 will debut on January 27 along with whatever super-secret product Apple has hidden up its sleeve. Boy Genius has just gathered some information from a reliable contact on what will be included in the 4.0 update.

First off, there will be multitouch gestures OS-wide now, and a bunch of new ways to run apps in the background. Apple seems to be expanding both their gesture library, and the capacity of iPhone OS devices to multitask. I doubt they'll be able to compete with Android's multi-tasking abilities at this stage, but that's clearly what Apple is moving towards.

There have been a variety of UI and graphics changes, intended to make the OS easier to navigate. According to the contact, everyone in Apple is excited about these changes. The update is only for the 3G and 3GS, and it should help to make those devices act even more like real computers. New syncing options for contacts and calendar apps will also hit with this update.

Of course, we'll have no way to check on the veracity of these leaks until Apple's event. Nothing here is very difficult to believe, though. I wouldn't be surprised if these OS 4.0 leaks turn out to be spot-on.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
