What happened to the MMS option for sending pictures? That button seems to be missing in the screenshot.

#3: Why? There seems to be some confusion about the iAd service. This doesn’t mean that it will put ads everywhere on your iPhone during normal use. It’s merely a framework that developers can take advantage of to display ads within their own applications. It will likely be leveraged primarily for free applications, and will simply replace the services like AdMob that most developers are already using to make money from their free apps.

#4: The iPhone in the screenshot appears to be in Airplane Mode, in which case MMS is not available (or more to the point, the iPhone can’t talk to the carrier network to determine whether it is or not, so it simply hides the option).  iPhone OS 3.x does the same thing.

Please tell me that background wallpaper of water/rain is not what our screens will look like if we upgrade to 4.0. 

Absolutely horrible; turns a clean background into a jumbled mess against all the icons.

iPhone OS 4 now supports background wallpapers on the home screen in the same manner as the iPad.  It looks like that’s probably just the default wallpaper that’s provided—you can change it to any other image you like.

Why making closing apps so complicated? First press and hold and then click. After that, press home button again. Why not just flick the icon upwards, like in webos?

Honestly, one of the most welcome features (read: fixes) for me is that Calendar now allows the user to change the assigned category in edit-mode of previously entered events. That took long enough!
