iPhone 4 and iOS4 from Apple – New Phone and OS

Apple CEO Steve Jobs kick-started the Worldwide Developers Conference 2010 in San Francisco with the announcement of the next generation iPhone model – iPhone 4.  The iPhone 3G will be sold no more. The iPhone 3GS would be sold for $99 with a two years contract.  Apple will start selling iPhone 4 starting at $199 with a two years contract in U.S. from June 24. The iPhone 4 would be available in a 16GB version costing $199 and 32GB version costing $299.  Apple has renamed the iPhone OS 4.0 for iPad and iPhone/iPod Touch devices to iOS4. From June 21, the iOS4 upgrade will be available free for all devices.  Features like multi-tasking and folders utilities will arrive with the iOS4 update for other Apple devices but iPhone 4 will come preloaded with it. The iPhone 4 will require iTunes 9.2 so we can anticipate that iTunes software upgrade in the coming weeks. Apple iPhone 4 will be available in white and black colors. Pre-orders begin on June 15 and phones will start shipping on June 24 in U.S., France, Germany, UK and Japan. Apple will roll out the iPhone 4 to 18 more countries in July, 24 more in August, and 40 more in September.

Processor:
Mysterious Apple A4 System-on-Chip processor used in the iPad, you won’t be surprised to discover that Apple has used the same A4 processor on the iPhone 4. Apple claims that this chip is power efficient and hence conserves power to add up to the battery life.
 
Display:
With the new iPhone 4, Apple debuts new display dubbed as ‘Retina Display’. This 3.5-inch multi-touch display offers 960×640 pixel resolution at 326 pixels per inch. This means crisper images and more amazing graphics display while playing games. Apart from that, this IPS technology based panel will offer 800:1 contrast ratio that would be four times better than the previous generation iPhone devices. 
Camera:
Apple has added 5 megapixel sensor with backside illuminated sensor and LED Flash. This new camera will also offer five times digital zoom and tap to focus options. Not only that, this 5 megapixel camera sensor is capable of recording 720p HD video at 30 frames per second. The LED Flash will stay illuminated for recording better quality picture in videos.
Gyroscope:
Apple has added three-axis gyroscope, a device maintaining orientation or measuring it based on the rotation mechanism of the object. This, clubbed with Accelerometer on the iPhone 4 makes it capable of 6-axis motion sensing.
Battery life:
Apple has put a larger battery in the iPhone 4. The lithium-ion rechargeable battery promises to offer up to 7 hours of talk time on 3G networks and 14 hours of talk time on 2G networks. Listen to music for 40 hours or watch videos for up to 10 hours. The most amazing part is that users can now browser mobile web for up to 10 hours on the iPhone 4.
 
OTHER FEATURES
 
Apple will also introduce new iMovie for iPhone app for video editing that will include options like scene transitions, themes, editable titles, and much more. This app will be available at a price of $5 after iOS4 is rolled out to everyone.
The iPhone 4 has a front facing camera that enables video calling dubbed as FaceTime that works even when the Wi-Fi is turned off. No setup or installation is required as FaceTime works out of the box. Apple has built FaceTime using a bunch of open standards like SIP (Session Initiation Protoco), H.264, AAC and so on.
