iPhone OS 4… and iPhone 4?
Well - Apple hasn't wasted any time. With the blogosphere still twitching from the iPad launch, they've dropped another invite-bomb on us, (although MacPredictions was obviously not on the guest list!)
As the image from the invite (above) clearly shows, we'll be getting a sneak preview of the iPhone 4.0 operating system on Thursday 8th.
This design is a bit of a departure for Apple, graphically speaking. We haven't seen this sort of bold, abstract typographic layout since the early packaging of Mac OS X. Clearly, in terms of branding, Apple is planning to major on the number 4, which gives further credence to the prediction we made last week that the new iPhone would be called simply "iPhone 4". The blue background is another departure for Apple, and could hint at a whole new visual style for iPhone 4 marketing.
