Apple sets the bar pretty high when it comes to new product launches, and inevitably, there were some who were slightly underwhelmed.
Much of what was unveiled was widely anticipated thanks to the leak of an apparently advanced prototype, although some significant details were clarified, including the new higher res ‘Retina’ screen and much improved camera with ‘FaceTime’ video calling.
From our perspective, iPhone 4 is the most substantial upgrade of the iPhone hardware since GPS was introduced with the 3G.
The new model is thinner, packs an innovative antenna integrated into the edge of the case and brings better battery life. And that A4 chip – also found in the iPad – should make everything run lightning fast.
If you are thinking of upgrading to iPhone 4, there’s no need to worry about whether CoPilot Live will run on it – our current apps will do.
But we are also working on an update to take full advantage of that amazing new screen to bring you a much sharper and crisper navigation display.
Hopefully that new antenna will also bring improved GPS accuracy and reliability as well.
In addition to supporting the new iPhone hardware, we are also working to fully support iOS4 features, including background GPS and multi-tasking.
There’ll be more about that over the next few weeks – we will keep you up to date with developments right here on the blog.
