    iOS 4: List of 100 New Features


    Now that iOS 4 is out, there is no need to speculate on new features or count the 100 features. Instead, if you would like to know all the new features, click here.
    This thread can stay open for people to reference different numbers announced at the event and for people who want to know when the betas were released, etc.

    Game Center coming later.
    iBooks is available in the App Store.​


    Here are all the items (of 100) we know of so far: (Please let me know if I am missing anything)
    "?" means that the image was too blurry to understand the word in that feature
    1. -iPod Out
    2. -Bluetooth keyboards
    3. -5X digital zoom (camera)
    4. -home screen wallpaper! (change lock screen, homescreen, or both)
    5. -MULTITASKING (double-click home button to use) Here's how it works. You can have MORE THAN 4 apps in the background. To keep your device from slowing, every developer can choose which aspects of their app to background. Therefore, the whole app isn't backgrounded: just main parts of the app. NOT FOR 2G iPod, 3G iPhone. Can work in beta 1 by editing one option in a file.
    5a. -Background audio - music from apps in the background
    5b. -Voice-over (VoIP) - talk over VoIp (Skype, etc) while in another app
    5c. -Background location - GPS in the background, indication in status bar of location tracking
    5d. -Push - (After 9 months, they've pushed over 10 billion notifications)
    5e. -Local Notifications
    5g. -Task Completion - finish task in background
    5h.-Fast App Switching - app stops completely, and starts from where it left off when you're back.
    6. -Unified Inbox
    7. -Folders - Kind of a better version of the Jailbreak app "Categories". Removes clutter of apps in the springboard. Easy to find applications now.
    8. -iBooks Store for iPhone/touch
    9. -Enterprise - Even better data protection. It encrypts email and attachments. There will be APIs available so developers can encrypt stuff inside their own apps. Also, Mobile Device management.
    10. -Game Center - A giant Apple-made social gaming center. Nuff said.
    11. -iAds (there have been 1 billion ad impressions per day, Apple wants in) Apple is helping developers (free ones as well) add advertisements to make money.
    12. -Spell Check
    13. -Call data only setting (?)
    14. -Persistent Wifi
    15. -Gift apps
    16. -Rotate Photos
    17. -Birthday Calendar
    18. -Recent web searches

    Just a question:
    Is this for the iPod Touch 1G?
    I'm guessing not, but just wondering to be sure.
