iPhone 4.0 OS arrived June 21st, available as a free upgrade for iPhone 3G and 3GS phones (along with second- and third-generation iPod Touch devices), as well as standard on the new iPhone 4 device arriving on doorsteps tomorrow. It’s got a few really nice features, like a consolidated inbox for all of your email accounts, Folders for organizing apps, and multitasking for those applications that support it.
But, like most good things in life, iPhone 4.0 OS also comes with a few potential hang-ups you should be aware of:
1. If you have an iPhone 3G or second-generation iPod Touch, we recommend you don’t upgrade. iPhone 4.0 OS may slow your device considerably, and the multitasking I glowingly spoke of earlier won’t work.
2. Your iPhone 3G/3GS will lose its voicemail password. If you don’t know this password, you’ll need to go to AT&T’s website and reset it.
3. Using iPhone OS 4.0 with Boise State’s wireless network will result in a pop-up notification stating the server cannot be verified:
Just click Continue to, appropriately, continue.
iPhone 4.0 OS will be coming to the iPad later this summer.
