Earlier today Apple updated their mobile platform to version iOS 7.1.2 which Improves iBeacon connectivity and stability, Fixes a bug with data transfer for some 3rd party accessories, including bar code scanners, and Corrects an issue with data protection class of Mail attachments. But it seems that some users are having a stall issue when trying to update.
The Next Web is reporting that an internal email has been going around that both Sprint and Apple are working on a fix to the slow data speeds that are plaguing Sprint iPhone 4S owners. Sprint customers with an iPhone 4S have been experiencing slow data speeds since the iPhone 4S landed on the Sprint network October 14th. Ironically, many customers switched to AT&T for the fast unlimited data plan.
In spite of the “Pro” in its name, Apple’s 2011 MBP got off to a bit of a bumpy start for many users. Some encountered problems when outputting video through the Thunderbolt port to their Cinema Displays, while others found the new MacBook Pro freezing up when processing loads got that little bit too intense. The good news is that Apple now has a software update geared to remedying all these maladies, with changes specifically designed to improve graphics stability, 3D performance, and support for external displays and Thunderbolt devices.
If you’re hankering to be riding the very latest mobile software from Apple, hit up your iTunes, for version 4.3.2 of iOS is now available for downloadin’ and updatin’. Fixes for occasional “blank or frozen” FaceTime video and iPad 3G issues get top billing, while the obligatory security updates fill out the rest. The size of this mighty software drop? A hefty 666.2MB.
Folks at BGR have got their hands-on the the upcoming iOS 4.3.2 for iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 2 & 1, iPod touch, and it is said to contain fix for 3G iPad 2 woes on Verizon, along with FaceTime issues reported on the current iOS 4.3.1 release.
According to their sources, iOS 4.3.2 is due within the next week or so. Apple is also expected to once again close the jailbreak hole which was recently released to untether the jailbreak on iOS 4.3.1.
More info on iOS 4.3.2 as we get it. Stay tuned!

Oh, this ain’t cool. According to the roughly gazillion complaints we received this morning upon the launch of Apple’s Mac App Store, users are seeing the ol’ “unknown error occurred (100)” message when first launching the store after the upgrade. According to TUAW, it’s a problem with the iTunes Terms and Conditions — which some users aren’t getting prompted to accept, hence the error message. What should you do if you get the error? Quit the store and reload it. If that doesn’t work, folks are finding that rebooting and then launching the store again does the trick.
See, sometimes dreams do come true. Just days after we asked how you’d tweak the second generation Apple TV, in flies an update that a good many TV owners have been anxiously awaiting. The 4.1.1 update purportedly solves “an issue that causes some high-definition TVs to incorrectly display at 480p,” as well as an issue that “may cause a movie or TV show to be re-downloaded.” It’s pretty obvious that Apple’s aiming to correct a nagging color / banding problem that has been plaguing some owners since day one, but according to users over at Apple Insider’s forums, it’s not a cure-all solution. A handful of members have stated that their sets — typically using an HDMI-to-DVI adapter — still display incorrect colors after the update. Flip on your own box and get the download started, and let us know if it’s the fix you’ve been after down in comments below.
Facebook for iPhone version 3.2 was rolled out last night which brought support for the newly launched “Places” feature, support for background uploading of pictures and videos in iOS 4, along with other visual enhancements such as “Pull-to-Refresh” to iPhone. However for many users including myself, this new version was mostly broken, throwing “Unable to Load this Page” error on most pages. Oh and if you tried removing and reinstalling the app, it simply refuses to login.
