How to trouble-shoot iOS 4 battery life problems

How to trouble-shoot iOS 4 battery life problems

Simple question - how's your battery life under iOS 4? We keep wanting better hardware and more features -- and better battery life at the same time. How did iOS 4 deliver for you?

If the answer is not too well, we've got some steps you can use to try and help. We did this last year for iPhone 3.0, and it's worth doing again.

Now, if your battery drain is caused simply by use -- you're running background music or navigation like a fiend, for example, your only choice is to get a few more charging cables or battery extenders. If, however, you're doing roughly the same things you've always done and getting substantially less battery life for your troubles, there's a chance a few troubleshooting steps might just help get your power problems back under control.

Apple now hiring: iPhone and iPad antenna engineers

Apple has three job listings for iPhone and iPad antenna engineers, all posted June 23, just following the launch of iPhone 4. Their missions:

Define and implement antenna system architecture to optimize the radiation performance for wireless portable devices.

Whether the timing is coincidental, crucial, or just comedic given the antenna reception issues many users have faced when holding iPhone 4 on the lower left side... we'll leave for you decide.

Apple posts article on how to fix iOS 4 Exchange sync problems

Apple has posted a knowledge base article support note for users whose Exchange ActiveSync mail, contacts, and calendars are no longer syncing post-iOS 4 update.

Here are the symptoms as described by Apple:

Immediately after updating to iOS 4, some users may notice that Exchange ActiveSync Mail, Contacts, or Calendars do not sync, or sync very slowly. In addition, some Exchange Server administrators may notice their servers running slowly.

And the solution:

Instapaper hits 2.2.5 for iPhone and iPad

Instapaper hits 2.2.5 for iPhone and iPad

Macro Arment's excellent Instapaper 2.2.5 has just become available for iPhone and iPad. I had the good fortune of talking briefly with Arment at WWDC and the amount of consideration he puts into usability and interface borders on the inspiring. His fearlessness in changing or even killing features to ultimately make a better product -- guess what? -- ultimately makes a better product.

New this time around are a rename from Instapaper Pro to just Instapaper, as well as additions to pagination, iPhone 4/iPhone 3GS backgroud task completion under iOS 4, support for iPhone 4 Retina Display, an overhaul to rotation and position saving, and one more thing...

Apple iPhone 4 reception problem support memo leaked?

Apple iPhone 4 reception problem support memo leaked?

BGR claims to have content his hands on a copy of Apple's internal support memo for handling iPhone 4 antenna band reception problems.

The gist is: they're to stick to the talking points, probe to make sure it isn't a different problem (i.e. not related to covering the lower left side of iPhone 4 or lower right side of iPhone 3GS), only escalate if it's a different issue and they can't resolve it, and NOT to give out any goram free bumpers!

No mention of mentioning or not mentioning an impending iOS 4.0.1 software fix either.

How to jailbreak iOS 4

How to jailbreak iOS 4

The dev team recently released a new PwnageTool that will allow you to jailbreak iOS4 on your iPhone or iPod touch. Since we covered that, the dev team has upgraded the PwnageTool to 4.0.1.  This is our walkthrough of  how to jailbreak devices running iOS4. As always here's our disclaimer;

If you are in any way, shape, or form hesitant to jailbreak your device, don't!  We take no responsibility for whatever damage you may do to your device during or after the process.  Jailbreaking should typically be reserved for semi-advanced to advanced users.  Preliminary jailbreaks can sometimes cause more problems.  This jailbreak is NOT as simple as a button click like blackra1n or Spirit.  If that's what you'd prefer, wait for that... pass on this one."

If you're alright with all of that, hit the jump to see if your device can currently be jailbroken/unlocked and how to do it.

Verizon to offer iPhone in January 2011?

Verizon to offer iPhone in January 2011?

So much for those reports claiming Verizon was not interested in the iPhone as Bloomberg is now reporting the iPhone is indeed heading towards the carrier in January of 2011. The timing seems a bit odd to release such a device as iPhone 4 right after the holiday shopping season. Then again this timing may have been necessary as it may be exactly when AT&T's exclusivity agreement with Apple runs dry.

Updated: Hulu Plus for iPad, iPod touch, and iPhone announced

Updated: Hulu Plus for iPad, iPod touch, and iPhone announced

Update: The Hulu Plus application [iTunes Link - Free] is now available within the App Store. We viewed some of the free content on a iPhone 4 over AT&T's 3G network and it streamed flawlessly.

Today that rumor of Hulu introducing a premium paid service has come true as they have officially announced Hulu Plus. It will run you a cool $9.99/month and that will give you streaming access - via Wi-Fi or 3G - to entire seasons of shows that are already available on the free web service along with other programming that is not available on Hulu's website. And the good news is it's just not for iPads but rather every device in the iOS family - iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad. There will also be future support for a countless number of other devices such as the Playstation 3 (July) and Xbox 360 (2011). If this sounds like your cup of tea be sure to sign up for the preview invite here.

How many of you are getting ready to do away with your cable or satellite TV service?

Video after the break!

Ducati motorcycle commercial filmed with iPhone 4

Ducati motorcycle commercial filmed with iPhone 4

The HD video featuring the Ducati Multistrada 1200 motorcycle was shot solely with a iPhone 4. The only trick that was used in post production was stabilization to give the appearance of using a professional camera. All of the very impressive footage was captured this past Sunday in the Pike's Peak International Hill Climb. If you are not familiar with any Pike's Peak events, they are simply races to the top of the mountain via some treacherous dirt road terrain.

Be sure to select the 720p option in the video when viewing from your desktop. Video after the break!

Google Offers Better Docs Support for iPhone and iPad

Google Offers Better Docs Support for iPhone and iPad

It seems Google has slipped in some improvement for document viewing via iPhone and iPad (and Android). For quite a while, the only documents that really played nice (at least for me), were spreadsheets. You can now go to docs.google.com on your Android or iOS device and view formats such as .xls, .pdf, .ppt, .doc, and .docx. I didn't see anything about .pptx though, I guess we'll have to wait and see on that one. If they're supporting .docx, not supporting the newer Powerpoint format doesn't really make sense to me.

The only glitch I seemed to find is that Word documents aren't that pretty. Some of my old accounting Word attachments were formatted pretty bad. I checked them on the computer and it wasn't the actual document. That may be something that needs a tweak on Google's end.

Here's a quick tip for iPhone users as well. What I actually do is open the Google Mobile App and click Google Docs, it'll automatically route you to the docs.google.com page in Safari. So you can go that route as well.

Hit the jump for some screens!

Microsoft Office Mobile coming to iPhone?

Microsoft Office Mobile coming to iPhone?

The App Store already plays host to several mobile apps that allow users to view and edit documents and spreadsheets, but how about an official MS Office app for iOS that you can natively edit and view all MS Office formats in? Hints persist that it may be coming.  We'll have to call this one a rumor for now, but considering Bing is already available for the iPhone, it's plausible.  Apple and Microsoft seem to be playing nice lately, so we won't rule it out.

SPE retractable sync and charge cable for iPhone 4 - accessory review update

SPE retractable sync and charge cable for iPhone 4 - accessory review update

The Smartphone Experts S&C retractable sync and charging cable for iPhone [$4.95] is something Georgia took a look at recently for iPad and iPhone 3GS but, frankly, I needed a convenient, tidy, highly portable way to sync and change my iPhone 4 on the go and so I grabbed it. Literally.

The Smartphone Experts S&C Retractable Cable for iPhone expands to a length of 2 ft. and has a locking feature which allows you to choose which length you would like the cable locked at. A light tug on the cable and it retracts back to its wound state. When wound, the Cable is only 4.5 inches long, making it very easy to bring with you. My regular usb S&C cable was always a tangled mess when I carried it loose in my briefcase. A good deal of time and effort was spent on untangling the cord from whatever it had become attached to. With the Smartphone Experts S&C Retractable Cable for iPhone, charging and syncing my iPhone is a snap, just take it out of my briefcase and plug it in and when I am done a quick tug and is thrown back into my bag. The cable is quite well constructed and after a month of use it is still working like new.

It's also $4.95, so I'm not too concerned about lending them (which usually translates into giving them away). If you want to keep your iPhone 4 synced up and charged, check it out.

And check out Georgia's video after the break to see it in action on the iPad and iPhone 3GS. (Works the same with iPhone 4).
