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?

No iOS 4.3 love for iPhone 3G?

It looks like Apple isn't showing any iOS 4.3 love to the iPhone 3G. No formal announcement has been made about the lack of support but no official iOS 4.3 beta download has been made available either, not for iPhone 3G or the 2009 iPhone touch 2.

Would Apple really cut off the iPhone 3G with iOS 4.3 and not wait for iOS 5? Do you think iOS 4 performance issues are to blame?

Wednesday fun video: Jon Stewart celebrates freedom from AT&T [Humor]

After yesterday's announcement of the iPhone 4's arrival to Verizon, Jon Stewart had a hilarious segment of The Daily Show celebrating his freedom from AT&T. His corespondent, John Oliver, joins halfway through with interviews with people in the street - all streamed from his AT&T iPhone with terrible reception.

For the past three or four years, those of us in the iPhone community have sacrificed one thing for the ability to carry around every photograph we’ve ever taken, or song we’ve ever listened to, or home video, or compass - we have sacrificed the ability to make phone calls.

For a good laugh, check out the video after the break!

Phil Schiller: Building the Verizon iPhone

After yesterday's Verizon iPhone announcement, Apple's Senior Vice President Phil Schiller has weighed in on what it was like building the Verizon iPhone. The two companies began talks to build a CDMA variant for Verizon's network over 2 years ago in 2008. Over 1,000 test models later, we've officially got a Verizon variant.

Schiller says the task was anything but easy. Apple knows their own hardware but sometimes getting software and hardware to work together isn't an easy goal to accomplish.

“A big part of it is the software, I’d say the biggest part,” ... “It uses the hardware in different ways.”
