Apple just posted a press release announcing debut iPhone 5 sales topped 5 million units sold since going on sale on Friday and pre-order Sept. 14. The Cupertino-based company also announced 100 million iOS devices are now running iOS 6.
Rumors of a 7-inch iPad mini have been around since just after the launch of the original iPad in 2010, Apple is reportedly targeting October 2012 for its release.
Although Apple has made no official announcement regarding the specifications of the new desktops, it has been widely reported in the last week or so that the popular desktop machines will run on Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, reportedly the Intel 22-nanometer Ivy Bridge.
Apple usually announces a new iPad every Feb-March and we are once again in that period of time when all sorts of “inside sources” say that they’ve got a solid month/day for when the next iPad will release.
According to a new report published today, Apple will be unveiling the iPad 3 in the first week of March. Details after the jump!
Apple today released iOS 4.3.5 which similar to iOS 4.3.4 will block the recent jailbreak released by comex. Do not update if you want to remain jailbroken.
If you have a device other than the iPad 2 and have not already saved your iOS 4.3.3 SHSH Blobs you can use iFaith to save them. You can find instructions on how to do that here.
The rare albino iPhone 4 has been spotted numerous times in the wild, skulking through the trees in the magical United Kingdom, cavorting across the mysterious lands of Vietnam, and most recently standing in formation in Belgium. Now it’s coming somewhere rather less exotic: the Apple Store. Apple has finally announced it will release the white iPhone 4 tomorrow around the world. Here in the US it’ll come in both AT&T and Verizon flavors, warming the hearts and minds of those who like a little less pigment on their handsets. Other than a proximity sensor tweak nothing else has changed on the device, and so the pricing remains the same: $199 on contract for the 16GB model, $299 for 32GB. Sadly, though, your contract also remains the same, and we’re pretty sure really wanting a new phone to match your earbuds isn’t grounds for avoiding an ETF.
Apple has just released iTunes 10.2.1.
It has been just a week since Apple released iTunes 10.2, which added support for iOS 4.3, which will be released on March 11th or probably even earlier and improves iTunes Home Sharing feature.
The what’s new section is the same as iTunes 10.2, so it’s not clear what has changed:
Well, it’s not March 11th, but you can now download iOS 4.3 for you iPhone, iPad or iPod touch (most of them, anyway). That, of course, brings with it mobile hotspot functionality for iPhones, along with a variety of new AirPlay features, a new and improved version of Safari, and a number of other more minor improvements and fixes (like an option to control how your iPad’s side switch behaves). We’re already busy testing it out ourselves and will report back on what we find, but you can feel free to leave your own first impressions in the comments below in the meantime — Apple’s complete list of what’s included in the update is after the break.
Apple has just announced that tomorrow morning’s early Verizon iPhone pre-orders will be available through its online Store as well — starting at 3AM, available to current VZW subscribers only, and sold on a first-come, first-served basis. More pertinent news, however, can be found deeper in the company’s press release, which states that pre-orders will be opened up to the general public on February 9th, when you’ll be able to reserve or have one delivered on launch day, February 10th. Shops will open their doors early, 7AM — matching AT&T’s early opening for the iPhone 4′s original launch way back in June — and availability will be broad, encompassing Apple’s brick and mortar Stores, Verizon’s 2,000+ retail locations, select partners, and even a zany 1-800-2 JOIN IN phone number you can call. So, really, the only people left without a Verizon iPhone on February 11th should be those that don’t actually want one.
There was a bit of confusion with Apple’s online store update yesterday as to when the 3G version of its iPad will actually make its retail debut. Let that fog of ignorance be no more, as Cupertino has today named April 30th, a Friday, as the day the WiFi + 3G slate will arrive in stores. In American stores, that is, don’t get all excited if you live outside the 50 states. That’s also the date when early (read: before yesterday) pre-orders will be fulfilled. Deliveries for those were promised for “late April,” though clearly this date has more of the late and less of the April to it.
