After yesterday’s post I was inundated with other small tweaks. Here’s a selection of others, spotted by eagle-eyed readers. Thanks to all those who sent them in!
Voice Control now responds to “What time is it?”. Some folks also tried “Where am I?” - a great idea - but to no avail. Only “What time is it?” works.
I’ve never been a fan of the Voice Memo app, but iOS4 at least brings in a slightly more stylish render of the microphone.
I’ve been using the iOS 4 Betas for so long that I forgot that Gmail accounts (when explicitly set up as Gmail accounts in Settings.app) you can now set it up to Archive when pressing Delete instead of having to manually set this up.
Minor Gripe: MobileMe recently introduced a similar archive feature in the web mail UI. It’d be nice if MobileMe accounts also switched to ‘Archive’ instead of ‘Delete’.
Mail now shows avatars besides message subjects.
I’ve not been able to replicate this one, however if an SMS or picture message fails to send, you’ll get an alert badge on Messages.app to warn you.
If you’re in a rush to switch to another keyboard, pressing and holding on the globe button reveals a new popup.
Applications that are push-enabled are now listed alphabetically.
In iOS4 the user has the option to turn off cellular data entirely.
