Apple sells 1.7 million iPhone 4

Apple has announced that from launch through Saturday, June 26 they've sold 1.7 million iPhone 4s.

“This is the most successful product launch in Apple’s history,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Even so, we apologize to those customers who were turned away because we did not have enough supply.”

1.7 million with ordering problems, not enough stock to meet demand for many who showed up without a reservation, almost no advertising yet from Apple, and a launch restricted to just a handful of countries.

Crazy.

Steve Jobs: There is no iPhone 4 reception issue

A new email, allegedly from Steve Jobs about the iPhone 4 antenna band problems -- where touching the stainless steel on the lower left side causes the signal to drop or go away completely -- seems to a offer a response either curtly dismissive or perhaps... encouraging?

I love everything about the phone except my signal issues

Steve Jobs supposedly replied:

There are no reception issues. Stay Tuned.

Does iPhone 4 support the iPad camera kit?

Does iPhone 4 support the iPad camera kit? Turns out no, at least not under iOS 4. I plugged mine in and immediately got the error you see above. Since I've gotten compatibility errors using other accessories in the past that turned out to work just find if I ignored said errors, I plugged in a camera to see if anything magical would happen.

It didn't.

iTunes 9.2 beta expiring June 30

Just a quick reminder to developers that the iTunes 9.2 beta released back at WWDC 2010 expires on June 30 (just over 4 days from now, Cupertino time).

So, if you haven't gotten around to updating with the general availability version released week before last -- it's expiring on June 30.

So go update.

[Thanks for the tip, anon!]

How's iOS 4 ActiveSync (Exchange/Google Sync) working for you?

So how's iOS 4 Active Sync working for you? iOS 4 allows multiple ActiveSync accounts, meaning iPhone users can finally have their work Exchange setup alongside Google Sync, for example.

I've got both Exchange (2003) and Google Sync (Google Accounts) set up on both an iPhone 4 and an iPhone 3GS, and both mail and calendar are working fine (I don't sync Exchange contacts, never mind the mess that is Google contacts -- I use MobileMe for that).

Some users over on the Apple Support forums aren't having as much luck. Calendars in particular seem to be giving them problems where they weren't under iOS 3.x.

I did notice that, on my iPhone 3GS, the first time I added the second ActiveSync account the phone got hot and the battery started to drain so I deleted it, rebooted, and added it back and it hasn't happened again -- battery life has been surprisingly good.

What's your experience with ActiveSync under iOS 4?
