iPhone developers have dug into the latest release of the iPhone software development kit (SDK) in order to find out more as to what the iPhone 4G might offer - and gesture controls could feature.
Inside the SDK there are details and evidence to suggest that gesture controls will be implemented on the iPad, Apple's tablet computer.
Since this device runs the same operating system as the iPhone, it is sensible to assume that Apple is also planning these for the iPhone 4G when it arrives in the summer.
New touchscreen controls will be accessible to developers who want to add alternative interactions for their apps, including the triple-tap and the long tap.
Tech site Engadget published this latest information about the updated iPhone SDK and iPhone fans will be pleased to see that Apple is going to be utilising the multitouch capabilities of its flagship smartphone still further.
Given that Apple has proved that it is willing to go to the courts to protect its technology, expanding the use of said features would seem to make sense.
