iOS4 on the 3GS: First Impressions
Like most tech fans, every software update is an adventure. And like with every adventure, it's only reasonable to leave room for errors, miscalculated risks and glitches of all sorts. Not so with Apple. Or at least, with their latest iPhone OS now dubbed as the iOS4. Ever since this update was announced by Apple CEO Steve Jobs, everyone but the caveman waited in eager anticipation of its worldwide release -- it is after all a major update. The fact that it includes well over a hundred new features is nothing short of 'major'. Tonight (technically, morning, that is -- June 22 at 0110H PHT), I along with most Apple fanboys and fangirls excitedly counted down the time until its release. According to my internet world time, it reached my desktop at 1010H Cupertino and took me more or less 80 minutes to download and install. And in the next paragraph, I will tell you why it's well worth the wait.
