Apple confirms iPhone VPN support, headset-charging dock


Apple has posted a new iPhone Questions and Answers page, which confirms several iPhone security features, as well as displays a photo of a new variant of the iPhone Dock, which charges both the Apple Bluetooth Headset as well as the iPhone and will reportedly be included with the headset. The iPhone will allow users to protect their iPhone with a four digit password, which is then required whenever iPhone is turned on or wakes from sleep, as well as offer support for virtual private networking (VPN). Finally, the page gives specifics on Windows compatibility, stating “iPhone works with Windows 2000 (SP4), Windows XP Home or Professional (SP2), and Windows Vista.”

Why a four digit password?

Apple must have the smarts to do finger print id.

The Q&A and specs pages, as well as the iTunes requirement page, now say that Win XP SP2 or higher are required for iPhone. Disappointing for those of us still happily running Windows 2000.
