7 Disappointments in iPhone 4.0
Apple iPhone OS 4.0 is here! The latest upgrade to Apple iPhone OS claims to have added as many as 100 new features. But does the new OS fulfills the long over due wishlist of iPhone users?

With iPhone OS 4.0, Apple has granted the long-time demand of multitasking in iPhone, however, it still disappoints users on many fronts.

Here are seven things that are missing from the next-gen iPhone.

Flash

Apple once again disappoints users on Flash front. The new OS release too lacks Adobe Flash support.

This is a big miss for users who may want to see those multimedia files that require Flash or browse through Web pages with Flash on their iPhones.

Built-in photo editing

With no built-in photo editing software, Apple once again disappoint users. iPhone users will still have to depend on a third-party app for photo editing.
FM radio

Apple again misses out on one of the most basic feature found in almost all mobile phones. iPhone 4.0 will ship without an FM radio.
No multitasking for iPhone 2G and 3G

Though Apple has granted the long-time demand of enabling multitasking in the next-gen iPhone, however, the upgrade leaves iPhone 2G and 3G users out.

This means the multitasking function won’t work on the original iPhone or the iPhone 3G version.

GPS navigation
GPS navigation
Another sorely missed feature in iPhone 4.0 is GPS Navigation. iPhone still does not have any service/app similar to Google Maps that offers users free turn-by-turn navigation service.
No email attachments
No email attachments
Another long-time demand that the new OS upgrade fails to meet is email attachment support. The next-generation iPhone OS too offers no way of attaching documents or pictures in mail. This means that users cannot attach files within the Mail app.
File manager

The new iPhone OS lacks a file manager that can be a central programme to manage photos, videos and documents.
