We had reported yesterday that iPhone users who had unlocked their iPhone using a combination of PwnageTool or Redsn0w to update baseband to 06.15.00 and Ultrasn0w 1.2 for iOS 4.2.1 were observing poor battery life.

Developer @sbingner (author of popular jailbreak app – TetherMe) has figured out a way to fix the issue. He has released a jailbreak app called SAM (Subscriber Artificial Module). It tricks your iPhone and iTunes into creating legitimate activation tickets even though you’re unlocked with Ultrasn0w. Continue reading »

Apple To Add AirPlay Video Streaming To Mobile Safari And Third-Party Apps In 2011

 Apple, News  Comments Off on Apple To Add AirPlay Video Streaming To Mobile Safari And Third-Party Apps In 2011
Dec 012010
 

AirPlay was one of the cool features introduced in iOS 4.2, which allows iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users to stream audio and video content to the new Apple TV.

But at the same it was disappointing to find out that the AirPlay audio and video streaming functionality was available only on the iPod app and YouTube app and it was possible to only stream audio from third party iPhone apps including the Mobile Safari browser. Macrumors is reporting that one of their readers who had recently bought a new Apple TV sent an email to Steve Jobs, Apple CEO on this limitation and reportedly received a response from him.

Nokia Siemens says iOS 4.2 supports new tech to reduce network congestion

 Apple, iphone 4  Comments Off on Nokia Siemens says iOS 4.2 supports new tech to reduce network congestion
Dec 012010
 

One of the world’s top suppliers of cellular infrastructure, Nokia Siemens, has dropped some juicy knowledge today that Apple’s new iOS 4.2 update supports a technology called network-controlled fast dormancy that better optimizes how the phone connects to the network. The company touts that it’s a win-win — better battery life, less unnecessary network utilization — and also points out that Nokia implemented the technique in all of its smartphones starting earlier this year. Since network-controlled fast dormancy is a feature that benefits the network itself as much as it benefits the individual user, knocking out two power players like Nokia and Apple (over half of new smartphone sales, NSN points out) should make a big dent.

Interestingly, NSN seems to have arrived at this discovery through “tests” it conducted, not by working with Apple on implementing it. Sure, we don’t pretend to know all the interactions that occur between manufacturers, carriers, and suppliers during a phone’s development, but it certainly seems to us that Apple would benefit by engaging infrastructure companies early and often as these baseband updates come together — particularly as it seeks to keep a tight lid on the very congestion issues that network-controlled fast dormancy is designed to help eliminate. Either way, it’s interesting to see how quick Nokia Siemens was to probe for the change this time around.

iPhone gets UberTwitter client

If the name UberTwitter sounds familiar, that’ll be because it’s one of the more popular mobile Twitter clients, accounting for 10 million tweets each day from BlackBerry users around the globe. And now it’s also available on the iPhone. Citing the “growing dominance” of Apple’s one-device-to-rule-them-all mobile platform, the UberTwitter crew has decided to expand its offering with a new open beta, which is available to download now. The major distinguishing feature being touted is something called UberView, which allows access to links within tweets without exiting the app or opening up a new window within it. Looks a pretty slick idea, but there are still some early issues to be ironed out — as with all beta iterations — and a final v1.0 should be ready to do battle with Twitter’s official app by the middle of December.
