iOS 5 beta 3 gallery

There's bound to be something new in iOS 5 beta 3, a new icon, a new screen, a new setting... something that shows what Apple has been up to. Already the internet and our inboxes are filling up. A lot of it is, frankly, stuff we think we've seen before in previous betas, but some of it looks new to us as well.

  • New location services opt-in/opt-out splash screen on setup
  • Settings control for system-level location services (similar to what was previously available for App Store apps)
  • Settings control to toggle status bar icon for location services on/off
  • New iTunes Wi-Fi sync splash screen
  • New icon for Reminders
  • Some new stuff with tones (not sure about it yet)Text tones can be set from iTunes ringtones

We're going to collect it here, in this gallery. If you find anything we haven't come across yet, let us know.

Screenshots after the break.

Google+ iPhone web app gallery

Google+ is the search giant's take on a social network, and while it will get its own iOS app eventually, it's already got it's own world-class web app (would you really expect anything else from the company that's defined the modern web?). Here's a quick look at it, primarily the profile, circles, and friends elements.

iOS 5 beta 2 gallery

For some strange reason, our tip box is now overflowing with 960x640 screenshots (what, no iPad love?) showing a few changes from today's iOS 5 beta 2 release. Among the more interesting ones:

  • Welcome screen now has an info button to give you your UDID number, should you have failed to record it previously (Thanks Apple!)
  • The iCloud icon in settings is no longer purple. Long live brush metal cone fill!
  • Lock screen notifications get a new, single pop up. You can pull down the full list if you like, and if you get multiple notifications, they start to stack again like they did previously.
  • Wi-Fi sync in now working, but you need to be connected to a power source.
  • iCloud has bumped Exchange from the top spot in mail account setup, while MobileMe has been condemned to the bottom.

We'll update as we receive more. Screenshots after the break!

iOS 5 beta gallery 2

You've already sent us one set of iOS 4 beta screenshots, and you just keep them coming. So here we are with round 2, and here's what they show:

  • Photo Stream can support multiple Apple IDs
  • Automatic downloads work for apps everywhere, but for music only in the US
  • Game Center has a place for your picture now
  • iCloud won't work with Apple IDs that aren't email addresses (older Apple IDs)
  • Swiping in weather gives you hourly forecasts (first update since 1.0, yay!)
  • You can Tweet a single picture but not multiple pictures
  • If you don't recall your password, there's an iForgot button (we kid you not)

Anyone notice anything else?

[Thanks Rodney, Kevin, JD, and anon!]

iOS 5 beta gallery

You're flooding us with screen shots of iOS 5 (sometimes without removing your personal info first -- please do that!), and we're going to keep adding them here. Here's some of what we're seeing:

  • iPod app is dead. Long live Music and Video apps. (More consistent with iPad, iPod touch.)
  • Tap and hold a lock screen notification icon, then slide to view it
  • If you hate the new style notifications, you can turn them off or switch back to the old popups
  • You can update more than one app at once
  • The square toggle sliders are round now
  • There's a "buy more storage" button in iCloud
  • There's a wireless iTunes sync setting
  • Calendar now has week view in landscape mode
  • Move Camera Roll photos to existing albums or create new ones
  • Add multiple Twitter accounts in Settings
  • Storage usage by app
  • On-device software updates
  • Open Safari links in background
  • SMS/iMessage are the same app, sends depending on what receiver can handle (AT&T/Verizon must hate that)

Photo gallery after the break, and we'll update if/when we're sent more.

[Thanks Ethan, Richard, K, and anonymous!]

White iPhone gallery

And here's the white iPhone 4 gallery, also 10 months in the making. We've got it side-by-side with the black iPhone 4, focusing on whatever little details and differences we could find. There looks to be an almost translucent edging around every seem. The proximity sensor is white-free, and while my black iPhone 4 (bought back in July) shows no sign of it, my white iPhone 4 has bright, visible light coming out of the 3.5mm headphone jack.

Check it all out in full on gallery glory after the break!

Update: Added white iPhone 4 vs. white iPhone 3GS pics

RockMelt Social Browser hits App Store

RockMelt has released a free iPhone version of its popular desktop app, a social-network, orientated web browser, that integrates with your Facebook/Twitter accounts, to share sites with your friends/followers as you surf, or you can update your social network statuses directly from the app. RockMelt for iPhone, brings all of these to the iPhone.

Since RockMelt uses your facebook login, the iPhone App offers real-time syncing for your bookmarks, RSS feeds or social networks, between your iPhone and other computer. As well as offering their new "View Later" feature, which allows you bookmark specific items, like sites or tweets which you can read on your computer.

Unfortunately, there is no iPad app, as of yet.

Are you a RockMelt user? Will the iPhone app be replacing your current iPhone browser? Check out screenshots and a video after the break.

iPad 2 Hands On

The iPad 2 is here! You've run down the specs - including the 2x as fast A5 processor, the lighter 1.33lb weight, and the crazy-thin .34 inch "thickness." You've considered whether it's worth it for iPad 2 owners to upgrade. You've taken a look at what's new in iOS 4.3. Heck, you've even read up on how to transfer your data from your original iPad to the iPad 2. What's left to do? Check out TiPb breathlessly unpacking and examining the real deal.

If you waited in line today and picked one up - congrats! If you are wondering what we think of Apple's latest, here's the short version: it's a thinner, lighter, faster iPad with a couple of cameras. That may sound anti-climactic - but after using the iPad 2 for just a very short while we're starting to suspect that it's anti-climactic in the same way that "the iPad is just a big iPhone" was anti-climactic in 2010. In other words: it's an experience that can't quite be quantified but gets under your skin in the same way the original iPad did. There's "nothing new" here to most people, but the execution of all the little details adds up to something pretty special.

As far as the hardware is concerned, we're impressed. Looking at the spec differences between the iPad 1 and the iPad 2, you might be tempted to say that there's not much improvement here. But .5" vs .34" only tells part of the story. The full story is that the tapered back of the iPad 2 makes it feel thinner than any device this size has a right to be. It's kind of amazing. Unfortunately, we can't quite say the same for the weight - while the iPad 2 is lighter, it's still not something you're going to happily hold at arm's length unsupported for any appreciable length of time.

A full photo gallery is after the break and video is coming right quick - keep it locked to TiPb as we unpack our thoughts and impressions of the iPad 2 this weekend and, heck, for the months to come.

iOS 4.3 for iPhone and iPad in 5 minutes [video]

Here we go, everything you need to know about iOS 4.3 for iPhone and iPad in just 5 minutes -- orientation lock/mute switch toggle, multitouch navigation gestures, and Wi-Fi personal hotspot.

If you don't have a lot of time but do have a lot of curiosity, just hit the video up top, sit back and watch, and then let us know what you think in the comment below.

Note: If you're running iOS 4.3 and you can't get the multitouch gestures to work, try connecting to Xcode and hitting the "use this device for development" link. That should make the toggle pop up in Settings.

Now iPhone will be getting those gestures and iPad that hotspot... right?
