Steve moves on and talks about iOS.
Over 120 million iOS devices have shipped since the iPhone launched. 230,000 new activations per day.
6.5 Billion download from the app store. 200 apps downloaded every second. 250,00 apps in the store. 25,000 of them are iPad apps.
Today they are introducing iOS 4.1, proximity sensor bugs, bluetooth bugs, iPhone 3G speed bugs... all fixed.
Added HDR photos, HD video uploads over WIFI, TV show Rentals, and Game Center is being introduced.
HDR photos (High Dynamic Range photos) takes 3 photos in rapid exposure, one regular exposure one over exposed and one under exposed then combines them together for the best photo. (cool!)
He goes on to Game Center which allows multiplayer games. You can challange friends or Automatch with others. (Like XBOX Live for the iPhone.)
Steve invites Mike Capps of Epic Games to reveal a new game coming later this year. Game is codenamed Project Sword. Amazing graphics all in realtime. The video quality is just as good as PS3 or XBOX.Scott
