yep…the final 4.0 next week will be an even later version and is confirmed unlockable (possibly iPhone4 too)

iPhone Dev Team had discovered two exploits in iPhone OS 3.1.3 baseband (05.12.01) few months back but had decided to wait until a major version of iOS such as iOS 4 to release their unlocking tools. Continue reading »

Apple had showcased the new iMovie app for iPhone during WWDC 2010 Keynote address. The application that will allow users to record and edit HD videos on iPhone 4, will be available on the App Store at a price of $4.99.

While the demo of the iPhone app was pretty impressive, the information available about Apple’s Movie App for iPhone is still quite sketchy resulting in several unanswered questions.

Folks at TidBITS claim that they’ve managed to uncover some of the details about the iPhone app from their source. They’ve revealed few interesting about Apple’s new iPhone application, which Apple engineers have worked on for more than 18 months.

The iMovie app will require iPhone 4 and shall not work on iPhone 3GS. This is because the application will require the new iPhone’s A4 processor to process the real-time transitions. Continue reading »

Boy Genius Report is claiming that according to their sources, Apple is very likely to launch its next generation iPhone on June 18.

It is widely expected that Steve Jobs will unveil the fourth generation iPhone on Monday during the WorldWide Developer Conference (WWDC) 2010 Keynote address.

BGR reports:

We have confirmed with multiple AT&T store reps that their sales quotas for the month of June are ridiculously high. Yes, this means the iPhone is confirmed to launch in June, not July. Knowing how many units stores received per day/week last year, if the iPhone launched in the last week of June, on Friday the 25th, we’re pretty sure the new sales quotas couldn’t be met (in-store orders don’t count as they don’t get recognized until the customer picks them up). We have heard stores having a 25-30% increase in their sales quota, so we’d like to think the next Apple iPhone will launch on Friday, June 18th. We’ll see pretty shortly.
