iOS 4 features: Safari URL bar gets "awesome"

When you tap into the Safari's URL bar in iOS 4 and start typing, Safari starts to do a "keyword search", i.e. display predictive results based on your bookmarks and history. Anything that contains the text you're inputing either in the URL or history is listed below the URL field so the moment you see what you want you can just tap it and go.

Apple Store - Your iPhone 4 will deliver on June 23rd (?!)

Apple has apparently sent out an email to customers who pre-ordered iPhone 4 for delivery -- telling them it will arrive a day early, June 23, and to make sure they'll be around to receive it.

In the past pre-order shipments have sometimes had early delivery dates, but Apple has always had FedEx or UPS hold the package for arrival on the proper day (sometimes causing huge problems, like on international iPad launch). Is this an attempt to avoid courier congestion? To ease carrier activation overload?

Even though Wi-Fi is required to use FaceTime, because it can be initiated from a voice call it was unclear if it would also use minutes from your voice plan. Apple has confirmed with Business Insider that "the voice call ends as soon as the FaceTime call connects," so it will not cost you voice minutes to use FaceTime.

iOS 4 Jailbreak

is there a Jailbreak for iOS 4?

iOS 4 Jailbreak is another question that just won't stop flooding our mailboxes today. Previous versions of iOS 4 beta up to and including the GM have gotten various states of Jailbreak thanks to the efforts of the iPhone Dev Team. Will the final release version work with current Jailbreaks? Will it work on iPhone 4 hardware?

UPDATE 1: The Dev Team has posted that they're working on it but it will take some time (obviously).

We are working hard on a release to our tools that will jailbreak your device (or give you iOS 4 via the jailbreak train) and provide you with a carrier unlock.
