You can’t tether an iPhone to the iPad?

This isn’t so much news as it is a public service announcement: even in markets where iPhone tethering has launched, you’ve never been able to use it to connect to an iPad, and you won’t be able to when AT&T flips the switch on tethering with the release of OS 4. That’s clearly not AT&T’s fault, it’s Apple’s — the iPhone inexplicably supports only USB and Bluetooth for sharing its internet connection, even though jailbroken apps like MyWi prove that a WiFi connection is totally doable and countless other handsets already support WiFi routing. And iPad doesn’t support using another device as a Bluetooth modem, either. And as long as you’re paying the tethering fee, there’s no reason why AT&T wouldn’t want you tethering the iPad; you’ll certainly be able to do it with any phone in AT&T’s lineup that can create a WiFi hotspot, after all, and we’re sure they’d be happy to take your overage cash once you hit 2GB regardless of the device you’re using to gobble the data.

If you thought that Apple’s foray into the world of home entertainment died with the last iteration of the Apple TV, you’re quite wrong. A tip we’ve received — which has been confirmed by a source very close to Apple — details the outlook for the next version of the Apple TV, and it’s a doozy. According to our sources, this project has been in the works long before Google announced its TV solution, and it ties much more closely into Apple’s mobile offerings. The new architecture of the device will be based directly on the iPhone 4, meaning it will get the same internals, down to that A4 CPU and a limited amount of flash storage — 16GB to be exact — though it will be capable of full 1080p HD (!). The device is said to be quite small with a scarce amount of ports (only the power socket and video out), and has been described to some as “an iPhone without a screen.” Are you ready for the real shocker? According to our sources, the price-point for the device will be $99. One more time — a hundred bucks.

See that screen there? That’s from the minty fresh beta 4 of iPhone OS 4.0, which was just released to developers moments ago. Unless our eyes are badly mistaken, that’s an option to setup internet tethering on AT&T, something that WWAN warriors have been waiting for since… oh, forever. We’re downloading the new build as we speak, and we’ll let you know if we find anything out. Oh, and don’t get your hopes up too high — AT&T proclaimed that it was “still waiting on better network performance” before enabling iPhone tethering just three weeks ago.

The new iphone OS 4.0 will have over 100 new features like Multitasking, change background and more…..

If you like living on the brutal, life-altering bleeding edge the same way we do, odds are you’ve got iPhone OS 4 beta 3 installed on that 3GS of yours — assuming you have an iPhone 3GS, naturally. That also means that you’ll likely be interested to hear that beta 4 is now out and ready for you to download, install, and not brick your phone if everything goes according to plan, just as long as you’ve got access to an Apple iPhone Developer Program account. Go forth, intrepid readers — and do report back on your exploits, won’t you?

Apple is building Facebook features into the latest version of its iPhone software, we’re told by a plugged-in source in the mobile industry. These features could be announced during Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference keynote on June 7, when Apple is expected to unveil a new iPhone.

Our source tells us that Apple is at least going to build Facebook contact syncing directly into the iPhone software, so you can pull Facebook contacts into your iPhone’s phonebook. This is a no-brainer, and is already a feature that some of Apple’s competition offers, so it makes sense to include on the iPhone.
