Apple recently unveiled the iPhone OS 4.0, which has some new and amazing features such as multitasking, unified inbox, iAd, GameCenter and so on. iPhone OS 4.0 will be available to the developers from today and to the users from Summer. Check out some interesting answers given by Steve Jobs to the questions from the press below.

Q: Will the social gaming network from Apple supplant all the social gaming networks already available? And what will Apple do different?
A: The problem was there are a bunch of different social networks out there. So the goal was to build it into the platform, and everyone can be on the same gaming platform. We expect developers will build this into their games because they’ll have a wider audience.

Q: How about iPad support?
A:
iPhone OS will be on the iPad this fall.

Q: Is there going to be any change in Apple’s position on Java or Flash on version four?
A:
No.

Q: “Will multitasking increase data usage, and how is AT&T prepared to handle this?”
A: “I’m not so sure it will. We’ll find out though.”

Q: The development of these rich iAds…will Apple make a development platform for people to make these ads?
A:
This isn’t necessary. They’re all HTML5 ads and people can choose any tools they want. As long as it’s HTML5

Q: Are there any plans for you to run unsigned applications, like on Android?
A:
There is a porn store for Android to go to. You can download them, your kids can download them. That’s a place we don’t want to go. We’re not going to go there.

Q: Anything surprise you about the initial reaction to the iPad so far?
A:
The feedback we’ve got has been off the charts. We think this is a profound gamechanger. We think when people look back some number of years from now, they’ll see this as a major event in personal computation devices.

Q: Are you concerned at all about multitasking and other features that wouldn’t work for the older devices. Will this upgrade be enough to get people to upgrade their phones and renew their contracts and such.
A:
The 3GS has been a huge hit, and iPod touch’s sales curve really accelerated over the last year. So a lot of these products, the install base, are the most recent products. The old ones will still love the new features, but they’ll just miss ones like multitasking. If that’s an incentive to get people to upgrade to the new phone, that’s fantastic.
