iPhone rumors roundup


There are two major iPhone rumors floating around these days:

1. Introduction of background processes – This might come as a surprise, but yes, Apple might just introduce the very thing it made fun of when it explained the Push notification service in one of its keynotes. Here is what macrumors have to say:

By now, it’s clear that something is holding up the Push notification service. While we aren’t sure what the specific issues are, we’ve heard that as an alternative Apple is considering allowing apps to run as user selectable background processes. If so, this feature would likely come in the rumored iPhone 3.0 software update but would be limited to only one or two processes on current hardware. The next generation iPhone, however, would likely see less restricted background process support due to its improved hardware.

2. Next gen iPhone by June 2009 – AppleInsider thinks that the next gen iPhone might be launched as early as June 2009. Here is what they have to say:

The source of the June comment is not entirely clear, but appears to have come by way of Davis. That said, industry watchers generally expect Apple to take the wraps off its next-generation touchscreen handset in June, approximately one year after the iPhone 3G made its debut.
