Apple today unveiled its plans for the iPhone OS 4.0 software update. The update will ship this summer for the iPhone and the iPod Touch, and in the fall for the iPad.
Apple said the update will include more than 100 new user features for iPhone and iPod Touch owners, including playlist creation, 5x digital zoom in the camera app, tap-to-focus for video, auto photo-geotagging, the addition of Places functionality, the ability to change the Home screen wallpaper, improved spell-checking, and support for Bluetooth keyboards. Many of these functions are already available on the Apple iPad.
Additionally, developers will have access to a new software development kit (SDK) that offers over 1500 new APIs to create new apps for the Apple hardware. A developer beta is available now.
