iPhone iOS 4 update available from iTunes Apple Inc. has delivered the latest OS update for its iPhone range; iOS 4. The software update boasts 100 new features, but it is not fully compatible with all iPhone models. iOS 4 works with iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 3G. Not all features are compatible with all devices. For example, multitasking is available only with iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS.
iOS 4 brings Multitasking to the iPhone, running third-party apps (developed for iOS 4) and switching between them simultaneously without killing the performance of the foreground app or draining the handset's battery. Folders let a user organize their app collection into folders by simple drag-and-drop controls. A Unified Inbox shows all messages from all the user's accounts in one source.

Other notable changes are more playlist creation options, 5x digital zoom, iBooks, tapping on a recording video to change focus, viewing photos based on who is in them or where they were taken, home screen wallpaper options, sending apps as gifts to friends and family, a spell checker that works with apps and support for pairing a bluetooth wireless keyboard.

Updating to iOS 4 with a compatible handset is as easy as running iTunes, connecting the iPhone and clicking Check for Update.
