IOS 4….Something all iPhone Junkies can get excited about

June 8, 2010

My husband called me today to tell me about the announcement of the new iPhone. I think he is ready for me to get an upgrade so he can have my 3GS. He has been a holdout on the iPhone. He even took one back worried that he would break it. Well, he has come a long way from calling it an iPhone thingy to making sure I am eligible for an upgrade on June 24. As I investigated the new iPhone 4, I stumbled across the announcement of the new iOS 4. This is something we can all get excited about. Here are just a few of the highlights:
