A couple of minutes ago, Apple announced and previewed the iPhone OS 4.0 during a live-event at it's campus in Cupertino. As we see it, the new OS for the iPhone platform is no less than magical.

Although over a 100+ new features have been announced for the iPhone OS 4.0, but only 7 of the main features were previewed during the Apple which they call as they 'Tenpole" features. Here is a description of all such features:

Feature #1 - Multitasking: Finally as we reported earlier, the new iPhone OS 4.0 will give the user the option to run app services in the background such as audio, voIP and location.

Feature #2 - Folders: The users will now be able to organize their apps into intelligent folders which raises the app-limitation bar from 180 to 2160 on the iPhone.

Feature #3 - Unified Inbox: All email inboxes are now unified into one vertical grid.

Feature #4 - iBooks: The app will now be available to users on the iPhone.

Feature #5 - Enterprise: Great new features for Enterprise users.

Feature #6 - Game Center: This will be a social gaming network much like Xbox Live from Microsoft which will allow users to find players using the in-built Matchmaker.

Feature #7 - iAd: The last, but not the least, is the Apple's in-phone advertising platform that delivers rich-content ads from right within an app on the iPhone.

That's all. Those were some of the most unique features of the iPhone OS 4.0 platform. Unfortunately! as Apple announced the new OS will only be available to users of iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 3G as all previous models of the devices do not have the hardware guts to support the OS.
