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:

    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 ...

    This is probably not the best time to get an iPhone, since we're probably just a month or two away from Apple's next generation smartphone. That said, if you're in urgent need to get one, that doesn't mean that devices like the iPhone 4S won't remain relevant for at least another year or two. As carriers begin doing their best to boost sales during the slowest season of the year, Sprint took the lead by dropping as much as $86 from any iPhone that you purchase in their network after a two-year contract. That involves dropping $50 off the price tag, and then waving the $36 activation fee. ...

    iOS6 will bring a lot of new features (despite the fact that many are expecting a brand new user interface), at least from what Apple have shown and told us. Of course, there might be some more exciting stuff being held from us in order to show off with the occasion of the iPhone event. However, Apple introduced a nice little feature in the Mail app, as spotted by BGR. If you conversation view (thread) is getting too long, you have to pull in order to expand the collapsed email and it will display more. In order to visualize this, check out the image above. It's pretty much similar to ...

    Despite the fact that the numbers are looking really good, Apple's financial results for the second quarter of 2012 fall short of some expectations mainly because of speed bumps in the European economy as well as slightly worse iPhone sales. The fruit company managed to sell 26 million iPhones and 17 million iPads in Q2. However, iPhone sales are lower than expected and, according to the company, rumors of the next iPhone are hurting smartphone sales. The same thing happened last year with the iPhone 4 where many future owners refrained from purchasing one on the eve of the iPhone 4S ...

    Those running the third beta of iOS 6 noticed that Apple will make it easier to update applications and install free ones by removing an extra step necessary in the current iteration of the platform. Passwords will no longer be required for installation of free applications. The user will also no longer be required to enter their iTunes password when updating an application already installed, regardless if it is free or purchased/commercial. Currently the system is asking you for authentication but in iOS 6, whenever tapping a free product in the AppStore in order to install it, the button ...

    There are quite a lot of people who like to combine the best of both worlds and using Gmail on your iOS-powered device, let it be iPhone or iPad, is just one example. However, the Gmail app for iOS is lacking functionality compared to the Android flavor but there's an update available in the App Store that tries to close the gap. Probably the most important addition is Notification Center support with options for banners, alerts and lock screen notifications. You no longer have to open the application to check for e-mails, you can finally be notified if you have one right on your lock ...

    There's a lot to celebrate about iOS 6. Brandon's recent editorial highlights the top 5 features we found most interesting, but after testing the first beta just a couple of days later, not everything has been fun and games. I could certainly add a ton of additional reasons why I consider that the OS matters, but today, it's time to talk about the five reasons why I'm disappointed. Let’s start this list with a disclaimer though. There's nothing in these five disappointments that considers iOS either superior or inferior to other platforms. There's no such thing as a perfect operating ...

    One of the exciting features brought by iCloud and iOS 5 last year were the Photo Stream which instantly uploaded (if on WiFI) images snapped on one device -- like the iPhone -- and made them available on another device -- like a tablet or a computer. Dropbox for Android was already able to upload camera pictures to your account but now, with the same functionality coming to iOS, Photo Stream is getting some steam. You can enable or disable the automatic upload of camera shots as well as toggle whether you want to use WiFi, data, or both. Images uploaded will be available on the web as ...

    One of the top five Apple iOS 6 features is the new and improved Maps, which contains a neat little feature called Flyover. The company is no longer using Google as the main source of placing you on the map and has turned to another company to deliver cartography for basic mapping and turn-by-turn solution. According to TomTom, the company "has signed a global agreement with Apple for maps and related information". No further details have been made public but this will probably change (or not) once iOS 6 is ready for the public. For now, it is worth noting -- in case you were wondering ...

    For as exciting as Apple's new software announcements can be, whenever one comes around it's always a harrowing moment for users of older hardware, wondering if their devices will make the cut this time around, or if they're finally going to be left by the wayside. With iOS 6, the upgrade situation looked pretty promising at first, with the only big loser being the original iPad. Now that we're beginning to learn additional information about the company's apps, some new limitations are coming light, and spelling bad news for owners of even more hardware. The new Maps is going to be a major ...

    Cricket is set to introduce the US to prepaid iPhone service later this month, and we've heard rumors about the possibility for Boost Mobile to offer similar service in a few months, possibly during September. According to the Wall Street Journal, they're not the only outfits in town with an eye on the iPhone, and Virgin Mobile could be next to add a prepaid iPhone to its stable, as soon as next month. Just like the other prepaid iPhone options, a Virgin Mobile iPhone sounds attractive due to the carrier's affordable monthly plans. With an on-contract iPhone, the absolute lowest bill you ...

    Just yesterday, we learned of Cricket's plans to begin offering the iPhone 4 and 4S on its prepaid network, giving Apple fans in the States an opportunity to save what could be some pretty substantial bank on their monthly service costs. This sounded like a great opportunity for customers, and an especially good fit for the iPhone, as Apple users are already used to paying a bit of premium for the company's gear, making the higher upfront cost for off-contract phone hardware a little easier to bear. Cricket's hardly the only prepaid game in town, though, so what about the other carriers? A ...
