Mini-masterpieces. Made on location.Make beautiful HD movies anywhere with iMovie, the fun, feature-rich video editing app that’s designed for Multi-Touch.

Tap (or speak) to call.To make a call on iPhone, tap a name or number. That’s it. You can tap to call from just about anywhere: a name in your contacts list, a number on a website or text message, even a phone number on a map listing. Voice Control lets you speak a name or number to make a call. And with a tap, you can switch between calls, merge calls, or add another caller.
Touch your music.iPhone 4 isn’t just an amazing phone. It’s an amazing iPod, too — one that lets you listen to music, watch video, and browse everything with the touch of a finger. Flick to scroll through songs, artists, albums, and play lists. Flick through music by album artwork with Cover Flow. Shake iPhone to shuffle songs. Create play lists right on your iPhone. And don’t worry about missing a call. The music fades and pauses when iPhone rings, and a pinch of the center button on your headset answers the call.
Your photos have never looked this brilliant.The high-resolution Retina display on iPhone 4 gives your photos a place to shine.

Hold the phone. Air Print on iPhone makes it simple to print your email, photos, web pages, and documents. There’s no software to download, no drivers to install, and no cables to connect. With just a few taps on your iPhone, you can go from viewing something onscreen to holding a printed copy. And because all the printing takes place in the background, there’s no waiting around. Instead, you can start printing and then go back to flicking through photos, surfing the web, or doing whatever you were doing before.
Mobile printing is here.
Tell iPhone who to call.Maybe you want to call your friend Elliot. Or you want to dial the number for that apartment listing you just saw. With Voice Control, just say “Call Elliot” or “Call 555-1234,” and iPhone makes the call. It recognizes the names in your Contacts list, so it can find and call anyone you want. And iPhone repeats your voice commands to confirm them before it dials.
Text like you talk.When you start a text message conversation in Messages, you do exactly that: start a conversation. Messages displays back-and-forth texts as speech bubbles in a list — just like you’d see in an instant messaging session. That makes it easy to pick up where you left off, or scroll up and down to see who said what. And you can delete whole conversations or individual texts with a swipe and a tap.
