    It only makes sense to me.

    I am assuming that there actually is a chance that the iPad includes a camera and that they are going to announce it before pre-orders this Friday. That would mean that it would be announced tomorrow (Tuesday), Wednesday, or Thursday.

    Knowing Apple lately, they probably wouldn't just slip that in, they would have some sort of press event to get the word out. But, a whole press event just for the inclusion of a camera? Unlikely....unless there was another announcement this due this month like, oh say, iPhone OS 4.0.

    FYI- iPhone OS 2.0 announced Thursday, March 6 2008
    iPhone OS 3.0 announced Tuesday, March 17 2009

    4.0 is going to be BIG

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPhone_OS_version_history

    Based on when big features were released and when just bug fixes type stuff was released I figured out the following:

    -2.0 took approximately 2 months of development (to get to beta)
    -3.0 took approximately 4 months of development (to get to beta)
    -speculatively 4.0 took/is taking approximately 9 months of development (to get to beta)

    You're forgetting that 3.2 for the iPad has probably taken up a lot of developer time that would have gone into 4.0.

    So the old times for major releases don't mean anything.

    4.0 will get here when it gets here.

    Haha well sometimes I get thinking and one thing leads to another. The last thread was about an announcement this one is about the "size."


    Very true. Technically, iPhone OS or not, iPad is a separate device and I'm not sure if that "counts." But what do I know.

    Exactly. When I watch steve unveil the iPad and I saw the EXACT SAME HOMESCREEN as on the iPhone , i was shocked lol. With all that screen realestate that could have done something interesting with the home screen.

    I certainly hope iPhone OS 4.0 is going to be announced next week.

    Oh of course. We all know that Apple doesn't develop more than one OS at a time. They worked on 3.2, when that's done they'll start planning 4.0 and when that's done they'll start planning the next OS X.

    :rolleyes:







    Oh by the way, I'm being sarcastic.


    PS: is everyone in this thread really dense enough to believe they would only work on one OS at a time?

    You must have a skewed definition of the term exact.

    exactly. they could fit like New Mail sort of thing on there , calandar updates. bla bla.

    This is bound to be in the 'iPad 4.0' software update i guess.

    Right but most teams of programmers work on one application. I'm sure Apple has a couple OSX Dev groups and iPhone Dev groups. It's possible that Apple only has one team dedicated to iPhone OS, but even so I would be willing to bet that there has at least been some progress towards 4.0 made.

    No, not exactly. ;)

    You're saying that a home screen on the iPhone without wallpaper is the "EXACT SAME HOMESCREEN" as the home screen on the iPad with wallpaper?

    Oh really? You work for Apple? Or do you lead their programming teams?

    Of course. They wouldn't be where they are today if they only had one dev team.

    No it isn't.

    Of course. The next iPhone will be an A+ update.

    They also break it up into hardware. The iPhone team, the iPod touch team, and I'm sure the iPad team. Not to mention that the applications are in Objective-C and theoretically with a little help even an OS X programmer could rewrite Safari for iPad.
