On the back is a five-megapixel camera that can record video in 720p HD with LED flash and autofocus. Read on for the latest Apple iPhone 4 news, reviews and videos:

    Yesterday, about 24 hours ago, we reported that Nokia has released its -- now rebranded -- HERE maps for iOS, making it available for iPhone and iPad. Today, 24 hours later, the application is already the fourth application in the top free iPhone app list on iTunes, way above popular titles like Pandora, Spotify, Twitter, or even some Apple apps. After iOS 6 removed Google Maps from the system, users of the iPhone 5 -- as well as previous version of the iPhone and iPad that were updated to iOS 6 -- were left with Apple's own maps and some alternatives proposed by Apple itself after the ...

    The Here maps were announced by Nokia last week and we knew to expect an iOS iteration, among others. It appears that the application is now available in the iTunes App Store for both the iPhone and the iPad. When Apple's CEO Tim Cook apologized for the poor experience in iOS 6, he offered some alternatives available in the App Store until Apple's own mapping solutions become what they should have been. Here maps by Nokia is such an alternative mapping solution (now that Google Maps is no longer the default and a new iteration is yet to arrive) and, according to the description, it brings ...

    Just the other day, while exchanging some cool ideas with Michael Fisher, he told me about how awesome it would be if phones had flashes for front-facing cameras. I, of course, didn't necessarily like the idea (because you barely use it and it would crank up the costs) but said it would be nice if they turned the screen into a flash (like Photo Booth on Macs turns the screen bright white when you snap a picture). The latest version of Camera+ for the iPhone does exactly that, among other new things. When switching to the front facing camera and having the "flash" on, the screen will light ...

    Turn-by-turn voice navigation is a feature in iOS 6 that was not available in all countries at launch. While Apple's own website still says the feature will arrive in Australia this month, it has already been turned on according to recent reports. The feature should have been available in October but according to ex-Apple-manager Scott Forstall, it just wasn't ready in time. If you live in Australia an you are running iOS 6 on your iPhone 5, 4S, and 4, you can now enjoy this feature. Apple is continuously working on improving the map experience in iOS after a rather bumpy start (where the ...

    What's that, Motorola? Brand new mobile juice pack for the previous-gen iPhone? Here's an interesting one for your Sunday: Motorola seems to feel the urge to underline the battery capacity inside the Droid RAZR MAXX HD and its battery life, while comparing it to an Apple iPhone. Whether it is an iPhone 4 or a 4S is up to you to decide, but Motorola probably missed the memo that there's a newer Apple phone on the market. We know that the RAZR MAXX (sans HD) which we reviewed offers an excellent battery life and we even wondered why one would go for the MAXX but it looks like Motorola is ...

    United States International Trade Commission Judge Thomas Pender ruled that Samsung was infringing on four Apple patents. These include a patent related to the front face of the iPhone as well as one co-invented by the late Steve Jobs referring to touch-screen technology. However, the judge's findings have to be reviewed by the Commission in its entirety but, if uphold, could result in banning South Korean-made products from the U.S. market. February 25, 2013 is the date at which the investigation is scheduled to end. Samsung recently lost one of the battles in the U.S. and had to pay, ...

    Whether you like Apple's own mapping offering on iOS 6 or you hate it there is no doubt at this moment that there is a perception of inferiority when compared to the old Google Maps on previous iterations of iOS. Google executives didn't explicitly confirm nor deny plans for a native iOS 6 Maps application but commented that, even if there will be such an app, Apple would have to approve it anyways. The images above and below seem to be snapped following the instructions in "Mr. Blurrycam's Guide to Photography" to the letter. They're allegedly snapped off of a very early alpha version of ...

    iOS 6 Maps was "the most beautiful, powerful mapping service ever", that is when you only looked at it on paper; once you started to actually use the offering it quickly became obvious that the service didn't deliver, by far in some regions, the experience advertised (and expected). Tim Cook officially apologized for falling short on “delivering the best experience possible" to customers with iOS 6 Maps; Apple went as far as to recommend competing solutions until its own offering became better (competitive). After the acknowledgement the description of Maps has also been changed on ...

    After a very bumpy start (to say the least) for Apple's own mapping solution inside iOS 6 (and on the iPhone 5), users are waiting eagerly for an official Google Maps application to ease the pain. Until Apple fixes the terrible experience, iPhone 5 users can also wait for a Google Maps port for iOS 6. Eric Schmidt, Google's Executive Chairman, recently said that the Mountain View-based company has made no plans in terms of a dedicated Maps application for the iPhone 5 (iOS 6). "We think it would have been better if they had kept ours. But what do I know? What were we going to do, force ...

    The iPhone 5 is not the only new buzz-word; iOS 6 is the platform powering it and, while some love it, others prefer iOS 5, even our resident "iPhone guy", Jaime Rivera. The next version of iOS 6, landing on September 19, contains a lot of features but unfortunately not all of them are available in all regions. If you head over to the source link below you will land on an official Apple page which describe features and their availability, by region. Obviously U.S. users will receive the entire package with all features and functionalities available. People living in other countries where ...

    Apple is trying to distance itself from Google and, aside from ditching Google Maps for its own mapping solution, it has also removed the YouTube app from iOS 6 Beta 4, a pretty good indication that it will be left out in the final version of iOS 6. However, since YouTube is such a strong video sharing community, the folks over at Google just announced its brand new, stand-along application for the iPhone. The app is built in such manner that it will offer "the best mobile experience". Unfortunately the application is not designed for the high resolution of the iPad, even though it will ...

    Apple's got a habit of announcing new lower-end hardware alongside its cutting-edge gear; back around when the iPhone 4S first came out, we learned of a new 8GB version of the iPhone 4. A new rumor suggests that history will repeat itself, and the announcement of the iPhone 5 will accompany a similar re-shuffling of older iPhone models. Supposedly, Apple would finally drop the 8GB 3GS as its lowest-end model, replacing it with the already-available 8GB iPhone 4. That part's not hard to believe at all, considering the age of the 3GS and its current level of software support. Apple might ...

    After updating the Facebook client for the iPhone and the iPad -- with a revamped, faster experience -- Facebook has now refreshed its Messenger program to bring a couple of neat features for those who keep in touch using the social networks' messaging offering. The new version brings bugfixes alongside the ability to add smileys, hearts and other emoji to messages, tappable person name at the top of your conversation that takes you to their Facebook Timeline, the ability of seeing who's active lets you and your friends know how soon to expect a reply, and an improved "new message" sound. ...

    I'll start by immediately telling you that this is not the iPhone 5, but it does look like a prototype from the early days of the iPhone 4, way before Gizmodo. This N90AP prototype is now being sold on eBay, and you'll notice that aside from having a very weird back, which you can easily do by buying some back replacements on eBay, it does have some screws in different areas when compared to the final iPhone 4 product released. It also has a different UI when compared to iOS. It seems to be more of a prototype to test specific iPhone hardware features and not a device that will test ...
