TVC-Mall has posted images of what is supposedly an iPad 3 Microphone Flex Cable, reports Cydia Blog. The site suggests that a major redesign is in store for Apple’s tablet based on differences found when comparing to the part to the iPad 2’s.

The new part, when compared with iPad 2, shows a different arrangement in internal circuitry, hinting a major re-design. The tail end of the part makes a “U-turn”, whereas the iPad 2′s Microphone Mic Flex Cable makes almost 90-degree turn both ways. Except for few details, the leaked part so far doesn’t offer a tantalizing tease. Continue reading »

Taiwanese Economic News reports that Apple has placed an order with Simplo Technology Co. and Dynapack International Technology Corp. for a thinner and lighter battery for the iPad 3.

Taiwanese Economic news also reports that the new thinner and lighter battery for iPad 3 will be 30% more expensive. The battery is also supposed to offer longer service life and increased safety than the previous generation battery packs used in iPad 2. Continue reading »

PhoneItiPad Now Available In Cydia Store

Well today we’re happy to announce iPhoneIslam has released PhoneIt-Pad which will turn your ipad 3g into a fully working iphone. Sooo who’s going to be the first to hold up their huge phone up to their face in public? Don’t forget to take a picture and send it in for us to see.

PhoneItiPad is a little steep on the price selling for $19.99 but if you really do plan on using your ipad as a jumbo sized iphone then it should be a nice investment.

Here’s how to set it up:

Step 1: Locate your ICCID, which you should be able to find under System > General > About. This is your unique mobile identifier, which you’ll later need to set up PhoneItiPad.

Step 2: Purchase PhoneItiPad by clicking on this link (you can do this from computer). Insert your ICCID when requested.

Step 3: Fire up Cydia and add the following repository: http://apps.iphoneislam.com. Then locate the “PhoneItiPad” and install it.

Step 4: From here, the tweak should work directly, and you should be able to make calls and send SMS messages, as showcased on the original video released by iPhoneIslam.

You should think twice before giving out your unique ICCID to a third-party, but that seems to be a requirement to be able to make calls on the iPad. If the video above is to be believed, this hack works very effectively and is well worth the $19.99.

Avoid The Most Common iPhone Passcodes

Jun 132011
 

iPhone developer Daniel Amitay has posted the ten most common iPhone passcodes which he found by anonymously recording and analyzing passcodes used by customers of his Big Brother Camera Security iPhone app.

Formulaic passwords are never a good idea, yet 15% of all passcode sets were represented by only 10 different passcodes (out of a possible 10,000). The implication? A thief (or just a prankster) could safely try 10 different passcodes on your iPhone without initiating the data wipe. With a 15% success rate, about 1 in 7 iPhones would easily unlock–even more if the intruder knows the users’ years of birth, relationship status, etc.
