If you came along for our most recent podcast you heard us discussing some of the new features uncovered in the iOS 4.3 beta, including multitouch gestures for multitasking like four-finger swipes to go between apps. They seem hugely useful on an iPad but, on an iPhone, sounded like a bit of a handful. Now we have some video evidence, with Antoni Nygaard managing to get them working on his iPhone, along with the lock/mute switch toggle as well. Given these multitouch gestures aren’t coming to the iPad (yet) we’re guessing it won’t be hitting the iPhone either, but we can always hope. Continue reading »

The Shatter exploit that was discovered for iOS 4.1 devices has, predictably enough, been found to function on the latest Apple TV as well. Though a jailbreak fit for distribution is still brewing for all of Apple’s iOS wares, this will be welcome news to folks interested in trying to add a little extra functionality to Apple’s hockey puck of a media streamer. Then again, even the best of apps might not make up for it being a 720p media device in a 1080p world.

Member of the illustrious iPhone Developer Program? Well, aren’t you special? So special, in fact, that you’re once again being granted access to a highly-coveted iOS build that the unwashed commoners can’t get: yet another beta of iOS 4.1. This time around, it’s beta 3, suggesting that Apple might be getting close to having this thing ready for the mass market; after all, it’s been just a week since beta 2, and Apple tends to accelerate the pace when a release is drawing near. Now, what about that iPad version?

Update: Looks like there’s some bad news for legacy users in this update… namely the fact that Game Center compatibility for second gen iPod touches and the iPhone 3G has been dropped. Thanks for nothing, Apple!
