iOS 4 Gold Master Hands-On

During yesterdays WWDC 2010 keynote we learned that the new iPhone OS got a name change; it went from OS 4 to iOS 4. Developers were also happy to know that they could now ditch their beta versions in favor of the more stable gold master version.

Mike Keller from PC World has been using this version since it launched and has been very happy with the results — noticing that it is much more stable than beta 4. According to Keller, this was a great version but still suffered from the occasional crash.

The gold master version does lack one main feature, and that’s the iBooks app. Mike expects that this is something that developers do not have any need for — do not worry as this will be part of the public release version of Apple iOS 4.

Bing is finally here and is a nice addition to the other search engines available on this mobile OS. It is still early days to tell if iOS 4 is faster than iPhone OS 3 — the true test will be on June 21. For more details visit PC World via the link in the second paragraph.
