To those who intensely care about this kind of stuff – which would be pretty much everyone in the tech ecosystem – Apple will hold its much-anticipated event on March 2, where the tech giant seems poised to unveil a new version of its hugely successful iPad.
The event is supposed to take place in San Francisco and events like these are usually held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
Probably the most anticipated feature in the iPhone OS would have to be for the ability for third party application to perform their functions in the background. The iPhone has always been capable of this, but Apple limited it to their use only, that is, until they figured out a way to avoid the perils of BPs (Background Processes) in which two of the biggest issues are power and CPU consumption. However (in typical Apple fashion), the guys in Cupertino have figured out a way to deliver background functions to third-party application while evading the issues that it brings to mobile devices, and they have brought it home in iPhone OS 4.0.
