    Most likely becasue the iPhone 4 and it's numerous complaints. Also in my opinion the iPhone is now Apple flagship product (selling over 3million units). I have a feeling we won't be seeing ios4 until the end of the fall

    I really don't want ios 4. I mean you can do everything it can by jail breaking and downloading a few apps. I'm not looking forward to it.

    For those that do not want to jailbreak (including me at the moment) ios4 is a very good update (for me app switching).

    Not that jailbreaking is bad (as I hack most of my electronics including xboxes, wii's, and my g1 phone).

    But the app switching in iOS4 is crap compared to backgrounder. I am worried about it interfering with the much better jailbreak implementations.

    I like how the multitasking/app switching works on my iPhone. Since I haven't jailbroken my iPhone or iPad, I am unfamiliar with backgrounder. How is it better than Apple's implementation?

    You gotta try backgrounder. I love it, and it works with almost all the apps ever.

    Backgrounder places a fully running application in the background. Apple's implementation means that the developers of each individual app have to program in the ability to multitask, so some will, some wont. Also, Apple allows certain things to run fully in the background such as music, but most applications will NOT run in the background and will actually just be paused. So if you are loading up a youtube video, you have to sit there and watch it buffer instead of backgrounding it and doing something else. That is a garbage way of doing multitasking.

    With stuff running in the background and multitasking wont that suck up most of what little memory the iPad has.

    I think Apple will announce the release of iOS4.1 for iPad during their Sept. 7th iPod press conference. No sources, just my opinion.

    I.Q. Decline

    I just lost some points reading this thread.

    Who in there right mind is not looking forward to an OS update?

    Jailbreaking is all fun and games, but, the device should should work at it's best after the Apple guys fix the bugs and put out an update.

    The point it to make the IPad better without sacrifice of battery drain or crappy wifi.

    Hopefully Apple with go the open-source route.

    I'm in the same right mind I've been in for 50 yrs and I'm not looking forward to the update. Just because you are doesn't mean the rest of the world is wrong or crazy if they're not. (Not being JB'n) I can listen to my streaming radio in the background of anything I do, I can write 1/2 an email and close it up and open it later and it's exactly like I left it, YouTube videos load in the background tabs with Atomic or iCab while I'm off in other tabs doing other stuff. Why do I need the update? I don't need it and I don't want it.
    Oh, and I'm sane most days.

    those of us who are fearful that the firmware won't be stable at launch. Also those of us who are JB'n and already have all the promised functionality that apple should have included with such a device, but didn't.

    Not trying to pick a fight, simply stating the obvious.

    wut?

    I rather wish to have my quick app switch like the way that ios4 provides, not that backgrounder is bad, but I don't want it to drain my battery life as I will be watching out the background running apps all the time(or manually close em).
    Plus I prefer to keep it simple, JB is just a little bit too much for me... :D

    I agree that the iPhone is Apple's flagship product but I'd have thought the profit per unit is greater for iPads?

    Yes, I think it is likely that it will take some thinking to roll out iOS 4.1 on the iPad considering the smaller amount of RAM that is available.

    Looking at the memory that is free on my iPhone 4 right now, I see 135 MB. That is not much left out of the 512 MB with which we start.

    Using the Remove BG function brings the 135 MB free up to 318 MB, illustrating that the entire memory in between was being taken up with pre-loaded applications, the decision to pre-load being made based on what I had recently used.

    You can see that Apple would struggle a little bit with what percentages to use when dealing with the iPad because when you get down below maybe 60 MB free you can cause a hiccup if you suddenly shock the device with a huge, fat streaming HD video or something.

    I'm sure they can figure it out, but I'm also sure that the smaller amount of memory in the iPad vs iPhone makes for slightly different priorities. :)
