Apple iPhone OS 4 preview date & news on Verizon iPhone?

News is that an event announced by Apple for April 8, this coming Thursday, will be a preview of the new iPhone OS 4. Just after the iPad went on sale at last, invitations to journalists were sent yesterday about this special event.

The invitations state that attendees will get a “sneak peek into the future of the iPhone OS.” On the invitation graphics a slight shadow of the figure 4 can be seen which insiders are taking to mean the iPhone OS 4 will be the focus of attention.

The event will take place at 10 a.m. Pacific Time at the Apple Cupertino headquarters. There have been rumors of a new iPhone OS for many months now, and people are still hanging out for an official announcement on a Verizon iPhone, so at least we know now that the wait is almost over.
