As we all know by now that the iPhone OS 4.0 is out. We don’t want to go over its features as the cloud is saturated by it. Instead lets focus on what its missing!
Apple sometimes is notorious to keep away the obvious features that a device should have!
Flash support – Apple wants to get Flash out of business and considers HTML5.0 as a much dependable standard. When Steve was asked if there were plans to add Flash or java, his response was a simple “no”.
Multiple notification bar – Phones typically provide a list of recent notifications, iPhone won’t.
Tethering with AT&T – Tethering is available to users from outside the USA but not for the US customers. We are still tied to hefty ATT bills!
Mass storage mode – iPhone still fails to provide drag and drop solutions for storage of media.
Custom Profiles – With so much processing power at hand, iPhone fails to provide customizing profiles, profiles for home and office.
FM radio – A basic FM radio is not provided with the iPhone
Wireless (Wi-Fi) syncing – Apart from any security issues that might occur, iPhone could sync over wi-fi, but that functionality was not worked on as of OS 4.0
Built-in photo editing – No built in photo editing tool, only resizes.
Live Wallpapers – Unlike Android, Apple does not have live wallpapers.
Add contacts to home screen – No option yet to add contacts to home screen for faster dialing.
Second camera – With iPhone 4 in the news and rumours about it having 2 cameras, many were expecting the OS 4.0 to be able to support 2 cameras.
