Dev-Team Releases RedSn0w 0.9.9b8 to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 beta

With the availability of iOS 5.0.1 beta to developers, Dev-team has also pushed RedSn0w 0.9.9b8 to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 beta on iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 1 and iPod Touch 4G, 3G.


NOTE

  • It’s still a tethered jailbreak
  • Not recommended for unlock dependents
  • Gevey SIM dependents can produce the NO_BB_* custom IPSWs for 5.0.1 to preserve baseband.
  • UltraSn0w unlock is NOT updated with iOS 5.0.1 compatibilty
  • Redsn0w 0.9.9b8 will natively recognize the 5.0.1 beta, you’ll still need to provide it once to redsn0w (at which point it will cache all the important pieces so you don’t need to select it again).

Redsn0w 0.9.9b8 will natively recognize the 5.0.1 beta that Apple let developers start testing this week (so you don’t have to play the “point at 5.0 IPSW” trick). Because the IPSW isn’t public, you’ll still need to provide it once to redsn0w (at which point it will cache all the important pieces so you don’t need to select it again).

For those 3GS and i4 users who preserve their baseband, the Mac version can also produce the NO_BB_* custom IPSWs for 5.0.1. (But please note that ultrasn0w doesn’t get updated for betas like this.)

This is still a tethered jailbreak for all except old-bootrom 3GS users.

You can download RedSn0w 0.9.9b8 from the link below:

New Assistive Touch Feature On iOS 5 Beta 3 Is Really Useful

This is included in our what’s new in iOS 5 Beta 3 post, but its so cool we thought it deserved separate highlighting.

In the new beta, Apple has activated the “Assistive Touch” settings pane for the iPad (but not on the iPhone or iPod Touch). Update: This works on the iPhone 4, but not my iPod Touch third-gen.

The new feature allows you to activate a menu overlay on the iPad by pressing on a designated corner of the dock after clicking the Home Button twice. This menu then allows you to trigger all of the iPad’s functions just by tapping an icon.

So let’s say your iPad’s gyroscope or rotation is broken, or won’t detect the lock switch. Now, you can just tap the iPad’s home button twice, tap a corner in the dock and trigger that function on the handy overlay that pops up.

Very neat, and very useful for troubleshooting, even if you don’t need the function for accessibility reasons.

iOS 5 Concept UI Improvements

Apple - iPhone 4 TV Ad - FaceTime

Apple - iPhone 4 TV Ad - AirPlay

switch to web OS?

The last Switched On discussed why HP could have more success licensing webOS than Palm or PalmSource ever did with with Palm OS. To put it in the context of a more modern conflict, HP's handsets could be the equivalent of a Google Nexus devices (but selling better in HP's ideal), competing with phones from other Android stakeholders. Even the Nexus phones, however, are ultimately produced by existing licensees such as HTC and Samsung.

WebOS as a licensed operating system would likely compete most directly with Windows Phone 7, an OS that offers licensees and consumers some choice but preserves a consistent user experience -- particularly as it is trying to court developers. Unlike Windows Phone 7, though, webOS is rapidly being expanded to new form factors, with the TouchPad serving as the first tangible proof.

HP has said that it's most interested licensing to companies that wouldn't compete with it in its core markets. For now, let's count out HP's major PC competitors Acer, Dell (which once may have tried to build its own webOS-like platform when it acquired Zing), Lenovo and Toshiba. However, many companies that could help develop meaningful (in terms of absolute volume but also as a relevant development platform) scale for webOS in at least the US market offer, at minimum, handsets. A handset licensee could imbue webOS phones with features such as a 4.3-inch display that HP has shied away from, but which has been present in many successful smartphones.

Lenovo U1 tablet

Well, hello there little guy. Did you get lost on your way to production? Many, many moons since we got our first hands-on with the thing it looks like the Lenovo U1 has found the way to retail reality, making a stop by at the FCC to ensure that it can, some day, be released -- somewhere. When will that magical day come? We still don't know, but if you've forgotten just what this little guy is all about, take a trip down memory lane in the video after the break.

Apple may launch 3G iPod touch in September, rumor claims

A Dutch Apple blog named AppleSpot reported on Friday that Apple will launch a new 3G iPod touch in September. Similar to options available for the iPad Wi-Fi + 3G, users would have the option of purchasing the 3G iPod touch directly from a wireless carrier with a data plan. We’re expecting a possible iPod/iPhone/iPad refresh in September, and so it’s entirely possible that Apple is considering creating a version with a 3G radio. Such a device could also help carriers lock in more data plans and would continue to boost Apple’s presence among the flood of new Android handsets. Our only gripe with the whole story is that AppleSpot doesn’t have a proven track record reporting on Apple rumors. Plus, a 3G iPod touch would be just a little weird given that we expect every major U.S. wireless carrier to announce the next generation iPhone.

iPhone 4 vs iPod touch 4 display

There will be two different iPhones in September and the cheaper one is more important

This afternoon, we recieved some intel from an iPhone source that has been reliable in the past. Most of the information is already known but it is important to weigh in on what’s going around. The “big” news is that Apple will be selling two totally distinct iPhones in September. One will be a low-end variety that will address the cheap Android market, according to the source. The other will be a high-end device and will be an all new design. There will be no mistaking these two devices, they will be immediately discernible. The iPod touch, like it always has, will get updated in September as well.

So that’s where the info path trails off, and to be frank, it isn’t all that surprising. There are currently two totally distinct iPhones on the market: the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 4. The 3GS is at a cheaper price point while the iPhone 4 is the high-end line.

So we’ll have the same thing in September? iPhone 4 is the low end and iPhone 5 the high end?

I’m not so sure. For one, the price of an iPhone 4 isn’t going to compete with cheap Android phones in any way. Apple is currently selling them for over $600. They aren’t going to cut the price in half overnight. The 3GS doesn’t currently compete on price either. I think that to compete on price with Android, Apple has to make a totally new low end phone as well.

What’s it going to be? I think a good place to start looking is the curent iPod touch. The iPod touch has the same resolution screen as the iPhone 4 but with poor(er) viewing angles because the screen doesn’t have In-Plane Switching. (video below)

Also, the back camera is an order of magnitude worse than the iPhone 4′s, it doesn’t have GPS, has less RAM and the battery doesn’t last quite as long.

…and obviously the iPod lacks the “phone” bits.

But Apple somehow makes a lot of money selling this “almost iPhone” for just $229 retail (and under $200 at discounts) vs. the $650 that the iPhone 4 fetches without a plan. It doesn’t seem infeasible to me that Apple could use the iPod touch platform that debuted a full year ago to build a cheap iPhone device.

Here’s how:

Start with the same hardware. Add the GPS/3G baseband chips and some phone wiring and a solid 3 megapixel camera and you are 99% of the way to an iPhone lite. iPhone Air? Whatever.

Apple could make this device, one that is thinner than an iPhone 4, with most of the same specs, for $299. But here’s the best part:

Apple exploring new gestures (even 3D ones) and UI metaphors for easy sharing across iOS devices, next-gen apps

A new patent application published yesterday by the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) outlines in excruciating detail new multitouch gestures based on physical metaphors letting users share documents between devices by the means of flicking objects outside the screen boundaries, “pouring” content from one device into another (depicted in the above illustration) and more. The system taps your device’s many sensors, namely accelerometer, magnetometer and gyroscope, in order to determine its physical position relative to other devices in the vicinity. Combined with visual clues such as repelling forces, the user interface would communicate to the user when and how objects between devices can be exchanged. There’s a lot to be excited about this invention.

Apple provides limited file sharing options that require a computer, such as iTunes syncing, iTunes File Sharing and running a WebDAV server on the device to wirelessly share app documents through a desktop browser. In addition, come this Fall the iPhone maker will roll out the free iCloud online service and new iOS APIs so third-parties could build apps that can share private documents across devices via the user’s iCloud storage. Also, the new AirDrop feature in Lion could eventually arrive to iOS to enable drag-and-drop file sharing between Macs and iOS gadgets.

However, none of those methods provides an easy way to directly exchange files between nearby devices and the lack of full file system access for end-users doesn’t help either. While Apple is certainly not going to sacrifice ease of use by exposing file system intricacies to the user, the proposed file sharing metaphors based on new multitouch gestures should solve the file sharing issue once and for all. Check this out….

TIMN: iPad HD coming this Fall (and it will run Final Cut Pro?)

This is my next runs this story based on unnamed sources who claim that come this Fall tablet fans will have a choice between iPad 2 and an-all new high-end iPad aimed at creative pros, apparently dubbed ‘iPad HD’:

Our sources are saying that not only will there be a newly designed iPhone coming in the fall, but there is going to be a new entry into the iPad family as well. As hard as it might be to believe, the new tablet is said to sport a double resolution screen (2048 x 1536), and will be dubbed the “iPad HD.” The idea behind the product is apparently that it will be a “pro” device aimed at a higher end market — folks who work in video and photo production possibly — and will be introduced alongside something like an iPad version of Final Cut or Aperture. This product is specifically said to not be the iPad 3, rather a complimentary piece of the iPad 2 line. Think MacBook and MacBook Pro.

As for Final Cut Pro/Aperture, it would perhaps explain why Apple made such a drastic change in its X product, but the extra pixels don’t exactly make a professional video editor. A bigger screen could, however :D .

Overall, we love the idea of an iPad HD and all of the previous evidence points to it (below from the iS 5 SDK). But why wait until the Fall? Perhaps the screens just weren’t ready yet at price points that made sense. That is a lot of pixels to throw on a 9.7-inch display.

Apple prepping major iPhone revamp for 2012 with “new way of charging the phone”

HP’s Touchstone wireless charging technology as shown with the Pre

The Wall Street Journal follows up on their earlier report about the iPhone 5, once again calling for a thinner and lighter device with an 8 megapixel camera – but with a design akin to the iPhone 4. Tonight’s new report claims that Apple is already at working on a major iPhone revamp for the product’s sixth iteration. The phone, which will launch sometime in 2012, is said to include a “new way of charging the phone.”

This “new way of charging” jogs our memory of a report from This is my next, who claimed that Apple is already at work on complete iPhone revamp. That report pegged a thinner device with a 3.7 inch Retina Display, a gesture-based home button, and “cable-free juicing.” Perhaps this new way of charging is HP webOS-esque cable-free charging. Perhaps this also means that the other innovations discussed by This is my next will appear in the sixth-generation iPhone.

In addition, the WSJ is reiterating earlier claims by many and says that Apple is still working on a lower-priced iPhone with an edge-to-edge display. On a final note, contradicting Bloomberg’s claim that the iPhone 5 was delayed until September because iOS 5 was not ready, the new WSJ report says that the iPhone 5 is launching in late September because the hardware was simply not ready for a summer launch.

A person briefed on Apple’s product plans said the company initially planned to launch its next iPhone this summer as it usually does, but the device wasn’t ready in time.

The fifth-generation iPhone is also expected to feature the dual-core A5 processor found in the iPad 2 and a new Qualcomm-built cellular chip that can connect to both GSM and CDMA networks across the globe.

iPhone 5 mockups look just about right…

Rumor: Next iPod touch getting 3G data connectivity this Fall

Apple advertises its iPod touch as an iPhone without a phone. For kids and teens (its primary audience), the iPod touch is an App Store machine that lets them play jaw-dropping games, listen to music, run social apps to share stuff online and what not. Despite these treats and really low $229 price point, the gizmo is seriously lacking in the connectivity department: It works only with wireless hotspots and does not connect to cellular networks.

Now, a Dutch blog called AppleSpot.nl is running a report this morning which asserts that a fifth-generation iPod touch will contain new antennas and circuitry for 3G data connectivity. Bad translation courtesy of Google Translate:

This will be as his work as the iPhone, where you have a 3G subscription from your ISP, then the SIM card into your iPod Touch key. The choice to add to 3G iPod Touch lineup is not even a very bad idea from Apple, it was obviously true. The only question is how this is received by the telecom farmers, since the use of Skype then will shoot up considerably.

In plain English, 3G in the next iPod touch will be for data-only traffic, like on iPad, rather than voice calls over a cellular network (excluding VoIP apps, of course). Note that 9to5Mac is putting a heavy amount of skepticism on this report because the blog’s track record is literally non-existent. In addition, they provided little information about the alleged 3G feature. However, the idea has legs and could easily hit the ground running, here’s why…

Next-gen iPhone is "complicated and difficult to assemble," expected to ship in Q3

Next-gen iPhone is
There you have it folks, the next-generation iPhone is supposedly "complicated and difficult to assemble," according to a supply source quoted by the Wall Street Journal. Being both difficult and complicated however should be a good thing for the user, you might think, and you'd be right as the new iPhone is expected to push the envelope further to be even thinner and lighter than the iPhone 4.

"The touch-screen devices are so thin. It's really difficult to install so many components into the iPhones and iPads," chairman of Taiwanese manufacturing plant Hon Hai, Terry Gou said earlier. "We hope to raise the yield rate and volume in the second half which will help improve our gross margin."

It will also sport an 8-megapixel snapper, but all of this luxury might come spiced up with a not-so-nice delay as manufacturers struggle with the process. Nevertheless, one of the most anticipated handsets out there is expected to ship in the third quarter of the year as Cupertino is placing orders with major suppliers. Apple is reportedly aiming to sell some 25 million units of the new iPhone by the end of the year, with part manufacturing outsourced to the Hon Hai facility from August.

iPad 2 Jailbreak 4.3.3 JailbreakMe 3.0 [Guide]

iPad 2 Jailbreak released finally. Comex has just released his userland jailbreak JailbreakMe 3.0 to jailbreak iPad 2 on iOS 4.3.3 untethered. JailbreakMe doesn't support iOS 5 jailbreak for iPad 2 so far. iOS 4.3.2 / 4.3.1 / 4.3 will be supported soon.


JailbreakMe 3.0 supported devices so far :
  • iPad 1: 4.3 to 4.3.3
  • iPad 2: 4.3.3
  • iPhone 3GS: 4.3 to 4.3.3
  • iPhone 4: 4.3 to 4.3.3
  • iPhone 4 CDMA: 4.2.6 to 4.2.8
  • iPod touch 3g: 4.3, 4.3.2, 4.3.3
  • iPod touch 4g: 4.3 to 4.3.3
JailbreakMe 3.0 Q & A from dev-team blog:
Q: Do the holes discovered by @comex put my device at risk?
A: Yes. We recommend installing “PDF Patcher 2” in Cydia once you’re jailbroken to eliminate this risk (any firmware version).

Q: How does jbme3.0 differ from the existing jailbreaks?
A: jbme3.0 is entirely userland-based, from start to finish. The A5 chip in the iPad2 has no iBoot or bootrom-level exploits yet, so tools like redsn0w, PwnageTool and sn0wbreeze can’t use the limera1n bootrom exploit to inject the jailbreak. Even for those devices where limera1n works, jbme3.0 injects the jailbreak with a userland exploit.

Q: If I’m already jailbroken on the latest firmware, is there any advantage to jailbreaking again?
A: No, but you should consider showing this to your friends! Spread the jailbreaking fever.

Q: Are the holes exploited by jbme3.0 closed in iOS5?
A: The holes still exist in the iOS5 betas, but they’ll almost certainly be fixed by the time iOS5 is public. However because the iPad2 had no public jailbreak yet, it probably wasn’t worth waiting until the fall to use them. If history repeats itself though, there will be more holes and exploits.

Q: Will I permanently lose the jailbreak if I need to restore my device?
A: For all except the iPad2, saving your SHSH blobs should let you always restore your device to iOS versions where this jailbreak works. The iPad2 is a little more complicated. If you have a wifi-only iPad2 and saved SHSH blobs, you’re in good shape. But if you have the GSM or CDMA iPad2, you won’t be able to restore to 4.3.3 or lower once Apple stops signing its baseband. There are a few ideas that might work to get around this limitation, but for now it’s best to assume there’s no going back to 4.3.3 once 4.3.4 is out for iPad2 GSM or CDMA owners.

Q: I heard this new unionfs stuff is dangerous?
A: Define dangerous :) Seriously though, although unionfs is a huge improvement to the install time of the jailbreak, it is brand new code and there is the possibility something will go wrong. Just keep regular backups of your media and content and you should be fine. If there are any problems, they should appear within the first few days, so hold off and let “everyone else” test the waters if you’d like.

Droid 2 Global to get Gingerbread after Droid 3 launches

Motorola Droid 2

Perhaps you just saw our rundown of the Verizon Motorola Droid 3 specs. Did you catch the Easter egg? According to our leak, it appears that the Motorola Droid 2 Global (and presumably its CDMA-only cousin) -- which has seen its Gingerbread update apparently delayed -- will finally get Android 2.3 after the launch of the Droid 3.

That's a tad interesting given that Verizon first appeared to have the update ready to go, and then Motorola came back a few days later, saying things were on hold. Makes you wonder a little about who's calling the shots there. Also makes you wonder about the accuracy of the rumors that any Droid 2 update has been held back for more bugfixing. It makes sense that you'd want to launch the new hotness Droid 3 first, with the better hardware and newer OS, to better differentiate it from the old and busted Droid 2.

So what's that mean for the rumored launch dates for the Droid 3? You know these launch dates go -- any window bigger than a month is likely to be slammed on your fingers, and the Droid 3 hasn't yet been publicly announced by Verizon. But if we had to bet at this point, we'll likely see the Droid 3 sooner rather than later, lest Verizon and Motorola feel the wrath of those whose phones have been left behind.

Sony's S1 tablet spotted in the wild, S2 captured briefly on video

We've already seen press shots and teaser videos of Sony's S1 Honeycomb tablet and dual-screen S2 (and had our eyes on them ourselves), but Germany's Golem website managed to spend a bit of time with both of the devices at an event in Munich, and has now provided what's surely the best look at them to date. Unfortunately, that's still not exactly a thorough look -- there's just the single image of the S1 above, and an 18 second video of the S2, which you can check out after the break.

HP ponders Windows 8 tablets

On Friday, HP’s brand new webOS-powered TouchPad tablet will make its debut in the United States. Even though HP purchased Palm for $1.2 billion last year so that it could stray away from the Windows-powered tablet market by owning webOS, the company may soon build tablets running Microsoft’s new Windows 8 operating system. In a recent interview with Fast Company, HP’s president and chief technology officer Phil McKinney suggested that Windows 8 tablets could be in the pipeline. “I’m limited to what I can talk about with Windows 8,” McKinney says. “We’re working very closely with [Microsoft], and I’m going to leave it at that or I’m going to start getting myself into trouble.” We could take McKinney’s statement two ways. First, HP is already a Microsoft partner on Windows 7 powered devices, so to deny Microsoft support for Windows 8 could be a blow to the Redmond-based company. Or second, HP does have a Windows 8 powered tablet in the works, but doesn’t want to start spreading rumors, especially during the launch of the company’s new flagship TouchPad device. We’ll have to wait and see what HP decides to do, but it seems like a confusing move — at least from the customer perspective — for HP to offer both operating systems on its tablet devices.

HP needs touch-to-share more than you might think

In my review of the HP TouchPad, which we published last night, I went off on a tangent about the “touch-to-share” functionality Hewlett-Packard introduced with the TouchPad tablet and the Pre 3 smartphone. I think it bears repeating. In a nutshell, touch-to-share allows the user to tap a webOS smartphone to the TouchPad in order to push any URL in an open browser page from one device to the other. I wrote at length about this feature, which is still in its infancy but exhibits tremendous potential. But the real value for touch-to-share goes far beyond the technology itself. The feature is great and HP can take it in a million different directions, but the bigger picture here is that touch-to-share can become an amazing way for HP to differentiate its tablet from the competition in a way that might actually pique consumers’ interest. Tech companies are so concerned with catching up right now that they forgot a very important piece of the puzzle: valuable differentiation. Flash, for example, is not a way for a company to differentiate its products — just ask the senior RIM executive who recently made a plea for RIM to step up its game. Companies are so concerned with pushing media tablets out to market that they’re forgetting to give consumers a reason to buy them over the market leader, the Apple iPad. If an Apple competitor ever wants to see real, long-term success with a tablet line, valuable differentiated features like a mature touch-to-share solution are paramount. With that, hit the break for my thoughts on the technology, as originally seen in our review of the HP TouchPad.

In BGR’s first ever podcast, I mentioned my fondness of HP’s touch-to-share feature. This Touchstone technology married with Bluetooth (we mistakenly said in the podcast that HP used NFC for the feature, however this is not the case) allows a user to tap a Pre 3 smartphone to a TouchPad in order to take a web page being viewed on one device and open on the other. HP gave me a Pre 3 to test out the functionality and it works reasonably well. I found that there was a bit of a delay in opening passed URLs on the receiving device, but the ripple animation is nifty and this service, to me, is all about potential.

BGR Editor-in-chief Jonathan Geller responded to my cooing by mentioning Apple’s end-to-end iCloud solution, which, in part, synchronizes data on an iOS device across all iOS/Mac OS devices a user owns. It’s pretty great. But as elegant as Apple’s solution is, it’s not perfect. Today — or at least, once Apple releases iCloud to the masses — iCloud might be the simpler solution, and it also encompasses a wider range of data. Moving forward, however, I can see several areas where HP’s solution could provide clear advantages over iCloud. One such example is sharing.

In a bubble, syncing data effortlessly across all of your devices is all a user might be concerned with. But we live among other people, and we want to share things with those people. Can iCloud instantly and effortlessly share a v-card with an associate? Can iCloud share a photo or three with my wife? Can iCloud send a song or video to a buddy’s phone? Can iCloud mirror a task calendar entry on a coworker’s phone? The answer in all of these cases, and in countless others, is no.

ICloud is thorough, elegant solution for personal data management that will change the way we use our devices. But if HP doesn’t drop the ball, touch-to-share has the potential to change the way we interact with people in the physical world. You know, IRL.

There are other ways HP’s technology trumps iCloud — I love that I can make and receive calls and exchange text messages using the TouchPad when paired with the Pre 3 — but there are always plenty of ways iCloud’s utility far exceeds that of Touchstone. The ideal solution is unquestionably a combination of both technologies. And unless NFC rumors were accurate and Apple does indeed have some innovative NFC-based features coming to the iPhone in the near future, I think HP could get there first. HP is making big investments in cloud-based technologies — trust me, I constantly get press releases about said investments.

HP is in an interesting place right now because despite the fact that it has a lot of catching up to do in the mobile space, it finds itself in a position that perhaps most closely represents Apple’s. It builds hardware and it owns the software, so it can dictate the end-to-end user experience across desktop and mobile devices. HP does not own Windows on its computers, of course, but it will be adding webOS to its PCs on top of Windows so there is endless potential there. So HP could, for example, add Touchstone capabilities to its desktop computers with a simple peripheral. It could also use the bezel around a display or it could build the technology into the case around the keyboard. This would add a whole new dimension to Touchstone and really extend it to places we haven’t even considered. Then drop a cherry on top with a set of APIs that would allow third-party developers to build apps that employ Touchstone technology on smartphones, tablets, notebooks and desktop computers, and the potential is limitless.

Apple In Big Trouble [Report]

As most of you know that Apple is an giant American multinational corporation that designs and markets consumer electronics, computer software, smartphones, tablets and etc. The most shinny department in Apple is the hardware products section that includes the Macintosh line of computers, iPhone, iTouch and iPad. Apple becomes the valuable technology company in the world.


Unfortunately, Some experts see that Apple is now in danger cause of its closed system and the locked operating system, this closed system forced you to buy all applications from apple, this closed system will affect apple in the future will Displays it to the danger of extinction
In Speaking at the inaugural Forward with Ford Futuring and Trends Conference in Dearborn, Michigan, US, tech expert and Gear and Technology editor at NBC’s Today Show, Paul Hochman, explained that closed systems in nature and beyond ultimately die out: “Apple’s in big trouble. They’re sitting on piles of cash, but they are sitting on a closed system. In biology, in history, a closed system never survives,” he said.
Apple is not the only company at risk but this problem applied also on the car motors and the entertainment system inside

Hochman bemoaned Ford’s rivals’ decisions to lock down tech in a vehicle that might be owned for five years or more: “General Motors has a closed system. Essentially, it bolts a phone into the car.” With no chance of upgrading the hardware itself, even though entertainment and communication technology moves on quickly.
It is for this reason that he applauds Ford for adopting an open system with its MyFord Touch and SYNC Applink technologies. Both of them are fully (and regularly) upgradable in software terms, and rely on an external handset (iPhone, Android, etc) for communication and, even, app support.
On the other side we can say that open system allows you run applications from an external devices, the open system make your device more easier and familiar with other devices and systems, amazing more interesting, the open system allows you to save money, but can Apple do this ? Could you imagine Apple allowing that? I think Apple Should take swift action against this.

How To Set Up Wireless Syncing With iOS 5 And iTunes 10.5 Beta 2

With the release of iOS 5 Beta 2, just a few days ago, wireless syncing with iTunes was finally added as promised. While some had wrongly reported that the device would need to be plugged into the wall in order to work, it actually requires no cables at all. Wondering how to set it up? Read on.

iOS 5

You’ll need:

  1. iTunes 10.5 beta 2, which you can get from Apple’s developer site.
  2. An iPod touch, iPhone or iPad running iOS 5 Beta 2, which you can also get from Apple’s developer site.

Once both of those are installed, you’ll need to follow these simple steps:

Step 1: Plug your device into your computer (you’ll only need to do this once).

Step 2: Load up iTunes and select your device from the program’s sidebar. Make sure you’re under the "Summary" tab, select "Sync Over Wi-Fi Connection" and hit "Sync" in order to save this setting.

Step 3: Your device can be unplugged at this point. From your device, head to Settings > General > iTunes Sync. To begin syncing, just tap "Sync Now". Within a matter of seconds, your device will automatically detect your iTunes library and begin syncing. Of course, you must be running iTunes for this to work.

iTunes Wireless Syncimage credit: iHaz3

Wireless syncing is one of the biggest time savers introduced as part of iOS 5. Introduced earlier this month, the new version of iOS includes major improvements and new features, such as an enhanced notifications system with Notification Center and widget support. In addition, iOS 5 has done more to "cut the cord" than all other previous versions of iOS combined: for example, setting up a new device no longer requires a computer connection, with the wizards all built into the device itself.

iOS 5 beta 2 and iTunes 10.5 beta 2, which includes new iOS 5-specific features, was released yesterday. The new version of iOS 5 includes slight improvements across the board as far as user experience is concerned, including the way notifications are displayed on the system’s lock screen, as we reported earlier today. In addition, it’s been reported that the new version fixes the vulnerability that allowed a hardware unlock through Gevey SIM, a process that we highlighted last week.

The final version of iOS 5 is expected to arrive this fall, possibly along with a new iPhone. Meanwhile, developers are likely to get their hands on more beta releases just like this one.

Apple News | Apple Blocks iPhone 4 Unlock Via Gevey SIM  

Apple has blocked the ability to unlock the iPhone 4 using the Gevey SIM in iOS 5.0b2, according to MuscleNerd.

it's surprising Apple closed Gevey interposer hole in b2 rather than waiting until final (maybe they were under pressure)

Gevey's SIM Interposer was able to unlock the iPhone 4 by force activating the baseband using the emergency dialer. MuscleNerd notes that its unlikely Gevey will try to battle Apple while iOS 5 is in the beta period.

iPhone 6 to Support A6 Chip Coming in 2012 ?

As noted by Digitimes that Commercial Times reports that Apple is now working on iPhone 6 with A6 chip. They didn't mentioned how power is this new A6 chip, but they said that A6 chip will be manufactured by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) not by Samsung.


Digitimes also reports that Apple will manufacture about 15 million iPhone 5s by the first 4 weeks from its official release which scheduled to be in August or September according to many different rumors.

Skype for iPad

As noted by an italian blog, iPadvice, an interesting video has appeared today on Skype's official YouTube channel demonstrating the official Skype app for iPad. The video has been removed from Skype's channel or set to private.

The guys over iPadvice were able to catch a copy of this video then they re-uploaded it to YouTube again. The title of this video is "Skype for iPad, available on the App Store". Skype for iPad will allow you to call, video calls and chat for both 3G and Wifi
it’s not clear whether or not the app will be released as a universal update to the existing iPhone client, or as a standalone app. However, the video shows that Skype has taken its time to take advantage of the iPad 2 hardware to enable video calls both through the back and front facing camera, with a visual contact list made of profile pic thumbnails you can scroll, as well as the possibility of turning a video call into fullscreen mode.

Zinio brings Tegra hardware acceleration to Honeycomb tablets


Zinio's smartphone and tablet apps make it easy to bring a lifetime's worth of magazine content with you on the go, but performance has been inconsistent, especially when navigating through pages or zooming into photos and text. The company's latest app improves upon both critical elements, however, taking advantage of the Nvidia Tegra chip in your Mototola Xoom or Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to smooth out page transitions and pinch-to-zoom. Nvidia posted a side-by-side comparison video demonstrating the improvements on a pair of Xooms, and there's clearly a noticeable difference. You can try it out for yourself by downloading Zinio version 1.10.3641 from the Android Market, or jump past the break for the demo.

Samsung Galaxy S II set to outsell Motorola DROID BIONIC, study finds [infographic]

There are countless methods research firms use in an attempt to amass useful data for their analyses, and perhaps one of the most underutilized sources of sentiment at this point in time is social chatter. Several progressive firms have emerged recently, however, and they see the value in scouring the social web for freely-available data, and that data can be extremely valuable to researchers and businesses alike. Case in point: using online social mentions and opinion between April 1st and June 21st as a gauge, social media listening firm Mashwork has determined that the Samsung Galaxy S II is the more highly anticipated upcoming Android superphone compared to the Motorola DROID BIONIC. Data from 14,838 users across Facebook, Twitter and other social networking services shows that 68% of prospective buyers are interested in purchasing the Galaxy S II while 32% are interested in the DROID BIONIC. More specifically, 39% of of the unsolicited opinions gathered stated that they will purchase the Galaxy S II and 29% expressed interest in buying the phone. Meanwhile, 19% said they would be purchasing the DROID BIONIC and 13% simply expressed interest. In terms of trends, interest in the Galaxy S II is on the rise leading up to the smartphone’s launch while interest in the DROID BIONIC has decreased over the past two months. Mashwork’s infographic detailing social opinions on the two phones follows below.

iPhone 5 may offer dual-LED flash

Here’s the latest in a series of rumors about the iPhone 5: it may offer a dual-LED flash. Surely this seems like a minor upgrade to the single flash currently available, but if true, it definitely suggests that Apple is including a revamped camera with more robust capabilities. We’ve heard from sources that the new iPhone, which could launch as soon as this August, will be a major update with an entirely new case design. Other rumors have suggested the device will offer an 8-megapixel camera, a dual-core A5 processor, and possibly a larger display. DigiTimes suggests that the dual-LED flash will be provided by Everlight Electronics, Edison Opto and Lite-On Technology.

Apple files new patent suit against Samsung

Apple on Friday filed a new patent infringement lawsuit in South Korea alleging that multiple Samsung products are infringing its patents. “It is no coincidence that Samsung’s latest products look a lot like the iPhone and iPad from the shape of the hardware to the user interface and even the packaging,” an Apple spokesperson said regarding case. The move is the latest in an ongoing legal battle in which each company claims the other is making unlawful use of protected IP. Apple struck first back in April when the Cupertino-based technology giant sued Samsung, claim it copied “Apple’s technology, user interface and innovative style in these infringing products.” Samsung responded just one week later by filing countersuits in South Korea, Japan and Germany, and then in the U.S. as well. Both companies are thought to have grounds for legal action, but their close relationship stands to take a hit as a result of the feud; Apple is currently Samsung’s largest buyer of LCD components.

Nine Important Things Apple Forgot To Fix In iOS 5

Almost all of us were happy by releasing iOS 5 as we found some new features and iOS notification center widgets like QuickComposer and other too many things, but with this release Apple forget about 9 things to fix and improve it, here's the list of the 9 things must to be fixed :




1- iPod Touch without headphones !

Well, it is a bad thing to not have a headphone for your iPod touch right ? as Apple blocked many iPod Touch and will not be able to run songs when headphones are connected, including the original Apple earphones.


2- Clock icon doesn't show 24 hour !!!


Yes that's right, the clock only will show 12 hours and Also because the clock does not show any reference time AM / PM.

3- Improve Contacts :


I don't know if you relized that or not, but most of contacts doesn't stored on your iPhone and it is very slow You also can not longer create a contact from the email in Mail.

4- Camera App :

Yeah the camera takes long time to open specially when you enable HDR and the app to take pictures must be significantly improved.
5- Streaming Videos :

that's also one of the most important things Apple forgot to do, many sites optimized for streaming video IOS, which works with version 4, with the beta 5, however, more often than not loaded.

6- The Picture frame doesn't work :


With this beta, the little button that lets you start your iPad a presentation screen unlocks the photos do not always work.


7- iTunes sync doesn't work :

ITunes Sync function, allowing you to sync the device even WiFi is not yet active.

8- Dissapearing of Wallpapers:

No more default wallpapers: iOS5 in beta, in fact, if you log on to the relevant section are not shown by default the backgrounds of its IOS.

9- Battery Life :


And the battery, definitely be improved: now, with the first beta, the duration is much lower compared to IOS 4.
Apple still must work to make perfect iPhone OS 5, but the time is because the only official release is expected in three months.



Well that's almost all the things that Apple must fix it fastly, if I missed something you can tell me at the comment section below.

How To Get Free @Me.com Email Address Using iOS 5 On iPhone, iPad, iPod touch

Apple’s iCloud is home to more than a few cool, interesting and downright funky new features, and we’re sure it’s going to be a much-needed tonic to the chaos and shear nastiness that is MobileMe.

iOS 5

One of MobileMe’s original selling points was the included ‘@me.com’ email address. With the announcement of iCloud, there was no mention of the domain name, and we all wondered if email would continue to be included with iCloud just as it was with MobileMe. Well, turns out you can actually create a free ‘@me.com’ email address right from any iOS 5-equipped iDevice – and it’s super simple.

All you’ll be needing to do is head into your Settings, and then tap ‘iCloud’. Flick the ‘Email’ switch on and you’ll be asked to create a new email address assuming you aren’t using an existing one.

image (3)

From here it’s a simple case of following the instructions, which consist of choosing an email address that isn’t already in use and stabbing the required buttons until you’re done.

image (1)

Once complete you’ll find the new email address already added to Mail and ready to receive messages. It’s quick, simple and most importantly, free!

image (2)

We just tried it ourselves and successfully created a test email address which is now happily receiving email on an iPhone using the iOS 5 beta.

Now granted, there are easier ways to get free email addresses these days and double-granted you won’t have access to any web-based email reading or composing but if you really must have that ‘@me.com’ email address then this is one way to get one.

Of course, there’s no saying Apple won’t turn your brand spanking new email address off once MobileMe walks off into the sunset next year.

This T-Shirt Will Charge Your iPhone or iPod touch While You Listen To Music [

Telecommunications company Orange has developed a T-shirt that, get this, can charge your iPhone.

sound-charge-e1308625868294

The shirts aren’t very pretty to look at, but hey, it’s the technology that’s interesting!

The T-shirt is called Orange Sound Charge and it is currently a working prototype. The way the shirt works is, perhaps, even more amazing than the idea itself: Orange’s shirt works by converting sound energy into electrical energy.

Yes, I just said sound energy.

Sound Charge makes use of sound pressure waves and converts them into electrical charge which, in turn, is used to charge your iPhone. The shirt will soon be able to charge a variety of mobile devices as well.

ORANGE SOUND CHARGE 01_jpg_autothumb_w-574_scale

Orange’s post announcing the shirt explains how it works:

The eco charging device uses an existing technology in a revolutionary way; by reversing the use of a product called Piezoelectric film, allowing people to charge their mobile phones whilst enjoying their favorite headline act at Glastonbury.

Usually found in modern hi-fi speakers, an A4 panel of the modified film is housed inside a t-shirt which then acts much like an oversized microphone by ‘absorbing’ invisible sound pressure waves. These sound waves are converted via the compression of interlaced quartz crystals into an electrical charge, which is fed into an integral reservoir battery that in turn charges most makes and models of mobile phone. As the ‘device’ is worn, a steady charge is able to be dispensed into the phone via a simple interchangeable lead which fits most handsets.

To charge the iPhone, you’ll need to a. wear the shirt, duh b. be located at a place where there is sufficient ambient noise level.

Condition A is definitely pretty easy to conform to as long as you’re willing to wear a shirt which prominently shows your iPhone and has a big white patch.

Condition B, however, can be a tad little tricky to follow depending on where you live. You need a sound level of approximately 80 decibels in order to get it chargin’. 80dB is approximately equal to the sound level of a busy street.

The shirt will be tested at this year’s Glastonbury Festival’s series of live concerts where, of course, there’ll be lots of loud music to charge a mobile device.
