iOS 4 creates a standard platform

leave a comment »

Apple’s introduction of iOs 4 is very intriguing. The dropping of the iPhone moniker seems to indicate that Apple has recognized the importance of the operating system. This change like the change from Apple Computer to just Apple points to a shift in the direction of the company. Developers and consumers will benefit from the unified platform that has 100 million devices. This platform standardizes development. The iTunes store being standard means for distribution and revenue for developers. Long overdue multi-tasking in the the new OS is effective and easy to use. The addition of iAds offers new opportunities for both advertisers and developers.  The timing for the iPad inclusion in the iOS 4 is critical. The incredible iPad will seem less magical in comparison to the OS on the iPhone. The two will need to be brought into sync quickly. Could this indicate other devices in the planning that utilize iOS? Does the hobby of Apple TV fit in this platform? The next few months will be very interesting.
