iOS 5 wants: App Store trials, upgrades, and subscriptions

While Apple's iTunes App Store for iPhone and iPad has improved in countless ways since its introduction in 2008 -- including the recent reversal of the cross-compiler ban and the publication of the app review guidelines -- several major problems persist for both develops and users, especially the lack of trial apps, paid upgrades, and subscriptions. While the mobile app ecosystem is the new frontier and arguments can be made about how closely guarded it needs to be, Apple is about to bring the App Store concept "Back to the Mac". That's an environment where developers and users are not only accustomed to, but expect features like trials and upgrades.

So while we're all still waiting on iOS 4.2, I'm going to leap ahead a little and start thinking about what I want in iOS 5. There's lots to cover, notifications, glance-able data, profiles, NFC, etc. Right now, I'm going to focus on the App Store, and whether Apple takes the opportunity to bring some of the Mac back to the iPhone and iPad.

iPhone 3G: AirPlay not included?

iPhone 3G: AirPlay not included?

The iOS 4.2 GM build seems to missing something -- AirPlay support for iPhone 3G. As we all know, iPhone 3G is already missing several iOS 4 features, and wasn't scheduled to get AirPrint either. Apple has said in the past 2008 hardware just wasn't able to keep up. However, AirPlay was alive and well on iPhone 3G throughout iOS 4.2 betas and Apple's very own website claimed that AirPlay would work for every iOS 4 device, which would include the iPhone 3G.

Apple TV gets Wiimote! [Jailbreak]

Apple TV gets Wiimote! [Jailbreak]

Developer Tom Cool has successfully brought Wiimote functionality to the Apple TV by activating a custom BT stack that uses Apple TV's built in Bluetooth. So far the demo only shows a virtual representation on screen which perfectly mirrors the movement of the Wiimote, however it shouldn't be too long before full Wiimote or even iPhone/iPod touch controlled gaming is brought to the Apple TV.

Are you excited for some Apple TV jailbreak gaming? Leave us a comment and check out the video below!

iOS 4.2 coming next Tuesday, November 16? Delayed?

iOS 4.2 coming next Tuesday, November 16? Delayed?

There are a couple stories floating around the web tonight involving iOS 4.2 and it's release date, with the usually reliable iPhoneHellas saying simply that it will arrive next Tuesday, November 16, and MacStories adding that it's actually been pushed back to the 16th due to iPad Wi-Fi bugs and a new GM candidate will proceed it.

For their part Apple has only ever said "November" when it comes to the iOS 4.2 release schedule.

Could next Tuesday be the day? If so, was it always scheduled to be the day or is it really a delay?

Your votes have been counted, your voices have been heard, and we're proud to announce the 2010 TiPb Readers Choice Award for Favorite #Fail of the Year goes to... White iPhone 4!

The white iPhone 4 was announced by Apple alongside the black model during WWDC 2010 but shipping delay after shipping delay -- variously ascribed to manufacturing problems surrounding the color consistency, proximity sensor, light bleeding, etc. -- have kept it from appearing on the market to date. While rumors swirl that it may simply never show up, for their part Apple has pegged early 2011 as the next release window:
