It took one hell of a long time, but multi-tasking has finally found its way to iPhone OS. The OS 4.0 unveiling, still in progress (Gizmodo), has just seen one of the most momentous announcements in iPhone history. Full multi-tasking for 3rd party apps will be coming with OS 4.0. What's more, Apple says they have found a way to enable multi-tasking without draining battery life.

Pandora was shown off first, working in the background and playing music while other apps were used. Next, David Ponsford of Skype came up to show how the new Skype app works even when the phone is locked. You'll be able to keep Skype on so you can take and receive Internet calls wherever you are.

More details of OS 4.0 and iPhone multi-tasking continue to pour out. We'll be back with a recap when the show is over. Update:
Full Apple iPhone 4 OS Details available
