Apple’s co-founder, Steve Wozniak, recently confirmed that issues with the infamous white iPhone 4 are fixed and that the product would be ready to ship in the near future. In an interview with Engadget, Woz addressed some of the mysterious problems that have been preventing the white iPhone 4 from shipping.
According to Woz, the white paint was not the only problem with the mythical unicorn. The white iPhone parts were causing the iPhone’s camera to malfunction.
In the interview, Woz claims that Apple has fixed the production line issues with the white iPhone 4, and that shipping should begin in the distant future…
When we first posted about 3DBoard — a jailbreaktweak for the iPhone that lends a 3D effect to your Home screen — we were excited. When Ryan Petrich one-upped the release of 3DBoard with his own tweak entitled DeepEnd, we were delighted.
That’s because not only was DeepEnd available first, it kept a few extra dollars in our pockets by being free. But free doesn’t necessarily mean better; after all, you get what you pay for, or do you?
Check inside for the full video evidence, as we compare these two popular iPhone jailbreak tweaks head-to-head…
Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 platform is a step in the right direction for the industry titan. The announcement of the Windows Phone 7 OS was like a breath of fresh air after the antiquated and sluggish years of the Windows Mobile reign.
The Windows Phone 7 interface is quite unique. Microsoft had some very creative ideas when they designed the vertical, tile-like navigation in the OS. Windows Phone 7 live tiles display realtime information from apps for things like social networks and weather services.
Wyndwarrior, a jailbreak theme creator, has created a Windows Phone 7 theme for iOS. While there are other Winterboard themes that try and mimic the interface and features of Microsoft’s mobile OS, Wyndwarrior’s “OS7″ bears a striking resemblance to the look and feel of Windows Phone 7…
For those of you who simply can’t wait a week to be free from the chains of AT&T, FakeCarrier will at least give you visual satisfaction while you wait for that February 10th launch date. Found in Cydia in the pre installed Big Boss Repository, FakeCarrier from Eric of the mirror dev team allows you to change the wireless carrier name to whatever you would like.
Now the app itself has been around for a while as well as others like it, such as MakeItMine, but I figured this was a good time to remind everyone of this neat and simple iPhone program… Read More
Apple recently released a new iPad commercial in attempt to seperate it even further from it’s competitors labeling the iPad as “iconic”. The commercial focuses on some aspects of the iPad that really sets it apart. Here are the highlights:
Music creation on the ipad is 2nd to none
Reading the news with the best interactive interface
Word processing applications for use in the classroom
Large, bright & colorful display for viewing books and magazines
Best of all, the iPad now has 60,000+ iPad specific apps availble in the App Store
Here’s Apple’s take on the commercial: “From Hollywood to the classroom, the iPad now has over 60,000 apps for just about everyone and everything. Go to www.apple.com/ipad to learn more.”
What do you think? Has the iPad established itself has the icon amongst the tablet industry?
The Macworld Expo is a giant technology conference that takes place once a year in California. Unlike the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Macworld is totally focused on everything Apple. The entire conference is devoted to Macs, iPhones, iPads, iPods, hardware, accessories, etc. Journalists and Apple pundits meet at Macworld to discuss the state of Apple’s technology and speculate about what is to come.
Hardware is a huge part of Macworld, with more and more attention increasingly being given to iOS hardware and accessories. The guys over at Mac Life posted a great gallery of some iOS hardware/accessories that stood out at Macworld this year. Here are a couple highlights from their findings…
If you’ve been keeping your ear to the street, a.k.a. keeping up with the latest jailbreak news on Twitter, then you may have stumbled upon several rumblings about a “big surprise” that will be included with the upcoming GreenPois0n jailbreak.
Have you ever accidentally updated your jailbroken or unlocked iDevice, leaving you without a jailbreak or unlock for weeks or even months? Well, there’s finally a solution to stop accidental updating.
From the creator of MiTime and Pushfix, comes another extremely useful utility! RecoveryGuard is a new tool which prevents accidental upgrade and restore of your iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Check inside for details on how it works…
A couple Facebook for iPhone bugs have been reported by disgruntled Facebook users. Two known problems have recently started surfacing within Facebook’s official app: status updates from the iPhone are not being sent to the News Feed, and Facebook for iPhone is missing from users’ privacy settings.
We have no information as to how widespread these problems are, but there has been enough complaint to justify these bugs as real issues.
Did MuscleNerd just let the cat out of the bag? Not only did we post news this morning regarding pod2g’s recently discovered untethered jailbreak exploit, MuscleNerd dropped a hint about GeoHot’s next jailbreak move; presumably RubyRa1n.
Back on January 3rd, we posted about another dime dropped by MuscleNerd, which claims that GeoHot’s upcoming jailbreak will be an untethered jailbreak as well.
The iPhone has had “Voice Control” for quite awhile. And although many verbal commands are supported, the iPhone’s Voice Control still lacks the potential it could have.
You can already use Voice Control to make a call and play a song, but it’s a shame you can’t have more varied types of commands. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could use the iPhone’s native verbal recognition to look up a webpage or launch an app?
A new jailbreak tweak, by popular developer chpwn, will soon be released in Cydia. Its aim is to provide more customizability and functionality to the iPhone’s Voice Control…
You gotta love the 1980s. In 1989, a gallon of gas was only 97 cents. Those were the days.
“Mobile” phones were huge in the ’80s. In fact, they were the largest they’ve ever been. Plastic shells, giant battery packs and long antennas probably come to mind. In the ’90s, phones started getting drastically thinner and more compact. In 2004, the Motorola RAZR shellshocked the mobile market and phones started getting super thin and light.
I can empathize with anyone who wants to push an accessory for the iPhone while at Macworld, hey, there’s a lot of money to be made in this business. What I won’t do is condone ridiculousness. The following is an example of said ridiculousness.
The TV Hat Personal Theatre for the iPhone is an article of clothing that you wear on your head; it has an iPhone pouch strategically sewn into its bill. Not only that, but it features a small drape that covers your entire face, ensuring that no light leakage ruins your personal cinema experience.
This brings new meaning to the term Retina Display, because having an iPhone this close to your eyes for extended periods is bound to sauté your retina, cornea, and ever other important feature of that visionary apparatus you call eyes.
This one can be filed under “incredibly specific.” The question is simple: What happens when a new email arrives in the iPhone’s Mail app?
That question may sound ridiculous at first. You may immediately say, “Of course I know what happens! I get a new email! Isn’t it that simple?” But do know what really happens? How does Mail.app decide to deliver email?
The design of Apple’s Mail app is proof that it’s all about the details…
Let’s face it; the more apps and tweaks you install on your iPhone, the more likely it is for your status bar to become cluttered. I’ve got it particularly bad, it’s such a problem that some of the status bar icons on my iPhone’s screen were beginning to overlap.
It’s almost as if the developer of CleanStatus read my mind, because as soon as I started looking for apps and tweaks to disable or get rid of, here comes CleanStatus… Read More
