“A big new feature has been added to the multi-tasking user interface in iPhone OS 4, and that appears to be a widget interface for the iPod app. If you flick to the left of your first window of open apps, you are greeted with a few new buttons,” Mark Gurman reports for 9 to 5 Mac.
“A stationary iPod button to quickly launch the app, iPod music controls, and Orientation lock,” Gurman reports. “The orientation lock is just like on the iPad, but instead is controlled via this new menu.”
Gurman reports, “This could be the beginning of mini-widgets coming to iPhone OS 4.”
[In an update, Gurman reports: Apple has pulled the update temporarily.]
