We then go through all the rumors surrounding a 5-inch Retina Display that Apple is ...

    At the end of February, when we heard about the "antennagate" class action being settled, we were told of a dedicated website -- www.iPhone4Settlement.com -- where customers will be able to track progress and even file a claim. If you have opted for a free bumper -- which is possible since 2010 -- you will not be eligible for the settlement which brings you $15. Talking about being eligible: you need to cumulatively (a) experience antenna or reception issues; (b) be unable to return your iPhone 4 without incurring any costs; (c) be unwilling to use a case or free bumper for your iPhone 4; ...

    Regardless if you are using a PC or a Mac, if you have an iPhone or an iPad, you occasionally need to use Apple's iTunes application to sync and update software (if you manage your libraries with something else). A new version of iTunes has been released and, as usual, it is always good to have the latest one installed. It "fixes several issues that may cause iTunes to unexpectedly quit while playing videos, changing artwork size in Grid view, and syncing photos to devices". Additionally, it "addresses an issue where some iTunes interface elements are incorrectly described by VoiceOver and ...

    One of the great features of iOS 5.1 is the addition of a Camera button on the Lock Screen. You no longer have to double-tap the Home Button to unveil it but instead you just slide the icon up, a la Windows Phone, and the Camera is activated. But what if you don't have iOS 5.1 (for whatever reason)? With Camera Grabber for iOS 5, you can have the same Lock Screen functionality. Needless to say that your iPhone has to be jailbroken but if that's not a problem, head over to the source link below (or search the Cydia ModMyi Repo) to grab it for free.

    A large number of smartphone enthusiasts seem to be relatively sour at the announcement of any smartphone lacking a front facing camera. This response is certainly understandable, as the front facing camera is another feature on a long list of capabilities, and a feature with no particularly solid reason for not including it in a modern smartphone. That being said, the front facing camera currently seems to stand rather low on the list of system critical features consumers demand. With the primary focus of this secondary camera aimed at video calling and the explosion of recent smartphones ...

    A bold move from Apple back with the release of the first-generation iPad, was to allow iPhone apps to run on it. Apps would box-into the display and allow you to even zoom into them to take over the iPad's full screen. Sadly, the problem was that zooming-in would turn any app into an old Nintendo 8-bit game show full of pixels. Apple's launch of the New iPad has changed that. You'll notice in our following video that if your iPhone apps have been enhanced to support the iPhone's Retina Display, zooming them into the New iPad's Retina Display will give you an image that's just as sharp. ...

    Apple's March 7th event is currently rolling and we thought you'd like to know that they've just confirmed the availability of iOS 5.1 to users starting today. It's kind of weird to see Apple roll the update without ever reaching a developer GM candidate, but after so many weeks in beta, it was about time. At the moment we've got details about Siri now being able to speak in Japanese to all iOS 5.1 customers. Sadly Apple's keynote didn't provide any additional details on what iOS 5.1 will bring. With so many battery life complaints on the iPhone 4S, this update most likely deals with ...

    While both the latest Apple iPhones and Samsung Galaxy devices depend on SoCs (System-on-a-Chip) manufactured under the same roof, their respective parent companies are bitter rivals in a highly competitive market. With any cut-throat competition there is often some form of mudslinging, in an attempt to sway the opinion of the masses, competitors will often spend significant time and money highlighting the flaws of their opposition. Seen on Thanksgiving, daily television, and even during the Super Bowl, the "Samsunged" ads are effectively everywhere. These ads aim specifically to portray ...

    Apple has a conference call scheduled for today, March 19, 2012 starting at 6:00AM PDT (9:00AM EDT) where Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, and Peter Oppenheimer, the company's CFO, will "announce the outcome of the Company's discussions concerning its cash balance". Apple has a lot of money; according to the last earning's report, somewhere around the $100 billion mark, but the Q4 report should give you more details in case you missed it. With the New iPad, upcoming exciting products like the new iPhone or even computers (desktop or notebook) as well as the incredible buzz around all things Apple, ...

    We've seen some compelling evidence that Boost Mobile will begin carrying the Apple iPhone this year. If true, it would be the first prepaid mobile operator in the US to offer what has traditionally been a device available only on contract (or unlocked). At this point, details are still thin: it's not even clear if Boost would be stocking the iPhone 4S or older iPhone 4. With many of Boost's recent Android offerings having first been sold by parent company Sprint (Samsung Replenish, LG Marquee), it's certainly quite feasible that the iPhone could go the same route. It appears that Boost ...

    You are already probably familiar with the i4Siri project; at the end of last year we told you to keep your fingers crossed for a port if Siri is the only reason you'd consider purchasing an iPhone 4S (despite the improved camera and processor). If you're rocking an Apple iPad and want to use Siri, this might be a good chance to consider it, since Apple failed to bring the personal assistant to the New iPad (and iOS 5.1). In order to get it up and running you will first need to jailbreak your device (regardless if you're on an A4 or A5 device, regardless if you are running iOS 5.0.1 or iOS ...

    Well after Apple's recently vague announcement of iOS 5.1, it's now available for your downloading pleasure. For a moment there, we thought that the only enhancement we'd get was Siri translating its own name in Japanese (which we don't recommend you Google for), but Apple has proved us wrong. iOS 5.1 includes some key fixes that many of us were waiting for with open arms. Out of the key changes: - The battery performance fixes for the iPhone 4S are probably the most anticipated - We can now delete photos all of those hidden photos you don't wish to share with the rest of your family ...

    So if you're on the list of people that cringed their teeth when they hit the Install button of the OTA upgrade of iOS 5.1 and forgot all about their Jailbreak, you might be in luck. The Dev-Team has just updated RedN0w to version 0.9.10b6 and it brings you the option of getting a tethered jailbreak of your device as long as it doesn't run on an A5 chip (Sorry iPhone 4S and iPad2 readers). There's nothing hot about a tethered jailbreak of any iOS device, but if you lost it by mistake, you're sadly out of of choices. Make sure you download the version of Redsn0w for either your Mac or PC ...

    Together with the New iPad, Apple also introduced iOS 5.1 yesterday and, together with the platform refresh the company appears to have reportedly introduced a major security flaw that could grant one full access to a locked device. In the new version of iOS 5.1 on the iPhone, you can swipe the screen up, a la Windows Phone, to access the camera quickly. This is a great thing but what is not so great is that you can tap on the lower left portion to get a representation of all the pictures snapped. The problem starts here, according to the reports! Not only you will be able to see all ...

    Apple's recent release of iOS 5.1 is anything but surprising. It took very little spotlight at Tim Cook's recent Keynote, but that doesn't mean it isn't important. The update has a full list of the updates that current customers are looking for, like improved performance in battery life for the iPhone 4S and the ability to delete unwanted images from Photo Stream. Obviously, if you're enjoying all the benefits behind a Jailbreak, upgrading to iOS 5.1 can prove to threaten your freedom. If you're asking yourself if this update is worth your time and lock-down, have a look at our following ...

    At the beginning of February Motorola scored an important win against Apple in Germany. The German Mannheim Regional Court granted a permanent injunction against Apple's iCloud push email service (as well as the predecessor, MobileMe) and any devices that can access it. Now Apple has quietly published a support document acknowledging the situation: "Due to recent patent litigation by Motorola Mobility, iCloud and MobileMe users are currently unable to have iCloud and MobileMe email pushed to their iOS devices while located within the borders of Germany." Users of the service offerings in ...

    If you fire up iTunes on your iPhone, iPad or computer, you'll see that there is a brand new section inside the store called "Mastered for iTunes". This way Apple tries to deliver best possible audio quality encoded files for all those details inside the tunes. Audio files are delivered in iTunes Plus format which has a variable bit rate of 256 kbps for the AAC file format (compared to 128 kbps AAC files available in the early days). Publishers will be able to submit better quality recordings and the end user, regardless if we talk about your average listener or an audiophile, will benefit ...

    An iOS 5 bug allowed pictures to be displayed on a password-protected iPhone if the time on the device was set to an earlier time and date than the real timestamp of the pictures. A new security flaw has been discovered, this time on iOS 5.0.1, but it takes a very persistent villain several tries to get passed the lock screen. In theory, the password protected iPhone must have a missed call. Swiping the missed call notification in an area without network coverage, or by removing the SIM card from the phone, could expose, after several attempts, the entire Contact list together with ...

    The iPhone 4's antenna problems, which let to that certain antennagate, generated a lot of buzz not only in the Apple-world but also concerning the attention given by people, in general, to other manufacturers and phones. However, Apple's antennagate led to a class action lawsuit which reportedly has been recently settled. $15 or a bumper case is what U.S. residents who bought the iPhone 4 are entitled to. There were no less than 18 lawsuits which were consolidated into a single one and thus the settlement is valid for all parties. There will be a dedicated website, ...

    Spotify launched in the US mid-July last year and brought its application to the iTunes Store for music lovers willing to subscribe to the service. Up until now you could only stream music in low quality (96 kbps) and high quality (160 kbps) but the newly released version takes to the next level. After you apply the refresh you can go to Settings and choose the "Extreme" setting which will grace you with 320 kbps quality audio. Of course, you need to watch out for your data plan as it is a data-hungry choice but if you have a pair of audiophile headphones and want the best out of every ...
