iOS 4 updated: Dropbox, Quota, Fandango, FlightTrack, more

Not only has Apple released iTunes 9.2 to the masses, they seem to be approving and releasing apps updated for iOS 4 compatibility now as well. If you haven't checked your updates tab in a while, it may be time to tap that App Store icon on your iPhone or check in iTunes.

Out of my 100 or so apps I have installed on my 3GS, I've seen about 4 or so apps in the past 12 hours receive updates for iOS 4 compatibility. I'm assuming that number will only grow over the next couple of days as developers ready themselves for the release of iOS 4. Now that doesn't mean they have any iOS 4 specific features -- it just means they've been compiled with the iOS 4 SDK.

Some apps will have much more significant updates than others of course. So far I've seen updates for apps such as DropBox, Quota, Fandango, FlightTrack and a few others. Quota is touting the fact that it's supporting the higher resolution of the iPhone 4 in its update straight away. I'm curious to see which other developers will do this straight out of the gate. I hope most do as I can't wait to run higher resolution applications on my new iPhone 4!

Streaming music, navigation/location, or VoIP (voice over IP) app in the background are some of the big ones of course. Saving state for fast task switching is something we hope is also rolled out quickly and universally.

Hit the break for some screenshots of some I've found as well as a video from one of our readers demonstrating the in-app SMS feature Apple has given developers and API for. Thanks Ethan! Any of you find any apps that are running iSO 4 compatibility yet? Leave 'em in the comments!!

iPhone orders pushed back further. New shipping date: July 14.

Last night, Apple sold out of iPhone 4's with a June 24 delivery date and pushed back all orders to July 2. Now those orders have sold out and the new shipping date is July 14.

It's no question that the iPhone 4 is a huge hit this year, more so than previous years. We learned earlier that 600,000 iPhone 4 orders were placed yesterday. With the shipping date being pushed back yet again, how many orders do you think have been placed now?

Apple announces over 600,000 iPhone 4 orders, apologizes for problems

Apple announced that more than 600,000 pre-orders were placed yesterday for iPhone 4, while apologizing the problems many customers experienced trying to place orders:

Yesterday Apple and its carrier partners took pre-orders for more than 600,000 of Apple’s new iPhone 4. It was the largest number of pre-orders Apple has ever taken in a single day and was far higher than we anticipated, resulting in many order and approval system malfunctions. Many customers were turned away or abandoned the process in frustration. We apologize to everyone who encountered difficulties, and hope that they will try again or visit an Apple or carrier store once the iPhone 4 is in stock.

AT&T temporarily suspends iPhone 4 pre-orders

After what can only be called a complete clusterfrak of an iPhone 4 pre-order day, where systems went up and down and eager customers spent hours, if not dozens of hours, just trying to get a confirmed order, AT&T has shut down the system -- hopefully to reboot into a kinder, better Matrix.

Apple still seems to be taking pre-orders, though the initial batch has sold out and the next one is only guaranteed for delivery on July 2.

Still waiting for a white iPhone 4?


Apple now sold out of iPhone 4 as well? New orders (sometimes) pushed back to July 2

We tried to end the day, we really did, but the July 2 shipping date now being presented by Apple Online Store for iPhone 4 yanked us back up off the floor. We heard before AT&T was out of launch-day stock, could Apple be as well?

Looks that way, but sometimes when we refresh the site it's going back to June 24. Right now it's at July 2 again. Maybe they're having trouble coming to terms with it?

Either way, we're already trying to imagine the massive sales number Apple's post pre-order iPhone press release will read. (Can we call it an even applezillion sold?)
