Apple today released iOS 4.3.5 which similar to iOS 4.3.4 will block the recent jailbreak released by comex. Do not update if you want to remain jailbroken.

If you have a device other than the iPad 2 and have not already saved your iOS 4.3.3 SHSH Blobs you can use iFaith to save them. You can find instructions on how to do that here.

Scott Forstall has just taken the WWDC 2011 stage and details about the changes and improvements in iOS 5 are flowing thick and fast.

– Firstly, stats. Scott notes that Apple has so far sold 200 million iOS devices, with more than 25 million of those being iPads. There have been 14 billion downloads from the App Store, tallying over $2.5 billion paid out in revenue to app developers. The iTunes Store isn’t doing badly, either, with 15 billion songs sold.
– And the first new feature: an overhaul of notifications. At last! A new Notification Center aggregates all your, well, notifications into one and is accessible by swiping down a menu from the top of the screen. Yes, just like Android.

Apple has been talking about OS X Lion for some time already, of course, but it’s now filled in most if not all of the remaining key details at WWDC. Dubbed a “major release” with over 250 new features, the OS adds things like a slew of new multi-touch gestures and full-screen apps (including iPhoto, iMovie, Safari, etc.), plus the all new Mission Control, which unifies Expose and Spaces, and the iOS-esque Launchpad application launcher. It also includes a new system-wide Resume feature that lets you pick up exactly where you left off, a new auto-save feature that automatically saves different versions of documents, the new AirDrop peer-to-peer file-sharing system, and a brand new version of Mail that finally includes a conversation view.

The OS will also now only be available in the Mac App Store as a 4GB download — which installs in place, no reboots — and it will run you just $29.99 for all of your authorized Macs. The latest developer preview is also available today.
