So by now everyone has heard about the new iPhone OS that is coming out soon, and it has some interesting features. According to Engadget (http://www.engadget.com/2010/04/08/iphone-os-4-0-unveiled-shipping-this-summer/), some of these features are:
- Spell checking
- User-selectable wallpaper.
- The introduction of the iAd platform.
When I read this, I was ecstatic! Finally, could my iPhone be more useful than it is right now? Then the stinger came in – some features only for iPhone 3GS’ and 3rd Generation iPod Touches. My heart sank. Really Apple? Using the iPhone’s specs as a way to not enable some features? Heck, if you jailbreak a normal iPhone it’ll do all of those things – but I choose not to for a reason, because I supported the current Apple platform. Now, I’m not sure if it’s worth keeping my iPhone just because I can’t get the new features. Some of you ask why do I just upgrade to an iPhone 3GS? Yeah, why should I? I really don’t need all the power it offers, and my current iPhone 3G serves me fine. We all know Apple have a really pushy way of forcing people to upgrade. I’m not falling for it this time Apple. Not all of us have money in the bank ready to upgrade to a shiny new 3GS. No freaking way.
