iOS 5 beta 3 gallery

There's bound to be something new in iOS 5 beta 3, a new icon, a new screen, a new setting... something that shows what Apple has been up to. Already the internet and our inboxes are filling up. A lot of it is, frankly, stuff we think we've seen before in previous betas, but some of it looks new to us as well.

  • New location services opt-in/opt-out splash screen on setup
  • Settings control for system-level location services (similar to what was previously available for App Store apps)
  • Settings control to toggle status bar icon for location services on/off
  • New iTunes Wi-Fi sync splash screen
  • New icon for Reminders
  • Some new stuff with tones (not sure about it yet)Text tones can be set from iTunes ringtones

We're going to collect it here, in this gallery. If you find anything we haven't come across yet, let us know.

Apple, WiTricity, and wireless charging

Apple, WiTricity, and wireless charging

With rumors of Apple exploring new ways to charge iPhones and iPads, MacRumors pulls together threads from a company called WiTricity, which is based wireless charging research from MIT, and puts it together with an Apple patent application that surfaced earlier this year.

Apple describes a scenario where your iMac could be the source of this resonance power to provide a virtual charging area in front of your computer. Keyboards, mice and even mobile electronic devices like the iPhone or iPad could be charged simply be being in a 1 meter proximity to your computer. In typical Apple fashion, they describe that "by doing away with clumsy and annoying cables and eliminating the need to replace batteries, an easy to use and efficient local computing environment can be provided to the user."

So unlike <a href="http://www.precentral.net/"tags/touchstone">HP/Palm's TouchStone, it wouldn't require direct contact, just proximity. Whether or not Apple is or will work with WiTricity, or does anything with wireless charging any time soon, it's interesting to see what's being explored in the labs.

I've used inductive charging with the Pre Plus and with PowerMat, and while it feels like the future, it feels like a very close future. Like a novelty and not that far removed from the tether (trading the socket for a surface). True wireless charging, the ability to put your iPhone or iPad down pretty much where you want, and pick it up again fully charged? Way closer to Star Trek.

AutoPlay – An app that lets you create YouTube playlists and play back video continuously

AutoPlay – An app that lets you create YouTube playlists and play back video continuously

AutoPlay is clever little app that enables you to create playlists from YouTube videos. The iOS stock YouTube app is very nice but it does lack a few killer features. With AutoPlay YouTube becomes a great way to watch continuous videos and even stream them to your Apple TV or HD TV; with the right hardware.

AutoPlay plays continuous YouTube videos on iOS and on TV without tapping the next button on the screen, so you can just sit back and watch the YouTube videos. You can also create an instant playlist in AutoPlay. For example, you can add YouTube videos like X-Men Episode from 1 to 10 to the instant playlist and AutoPlay plays it automatically for you.

Apple adding second manufacturer to meet demand for iPad 3 this fall?

Apple adding second manufacturer to meet demand for iPad 3 this fall?

Randomly accurate rumor site Digitimes claims that Apple is adding a second contractor to meet iPad 3 (or iPad 2 HD/Pro/Plus) demand this fall. That's right, they're also throwing their hat into the "Apple launching a second iPad in 2011" ring.

The latest market rumors also indicated that the new iPad may be named iPad 2 plus and will be thinner than its predecessors yet with upgraded display.

iMAME4all gets experimental support for iCade [Jailbreak]

iMAME4all is a Jailbreak app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch that emulates arcade games supported by the original MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) version 0.37b5. In simple terms, it allows you to play over 2000 retro arcade games on your iOS device, as long as you can find the ROM’s of the games.

As of today, you can download version 1.7 of iMAME4all that will enable iMAME4all to work with the iCade cabinet. That’s right, you can now use that expensive iCade cabinet you bought for some real old school retro arcade fun! The best way to use the two is in full screen portrait mode.

Apple releases new iPhone commercials for AirPlay, FaceTime

Apple releases new iPhone commercials for AirPlay, FaceTime

Continuing their new "if you don't have an iPhone" campaign, Apple began showing two new iPhone 4 commercials tonight -- FaceTime and AirPlay. FaceTime demos iPhone-to-iPhone video calling, which has been a staple for Apple since iPhone 4 was released. It also demos iPhone-to-Mac and iPhone to iPad FaceTime, however, which is new. AirPlay highlights playing music from the iPod app on your home stereo and watching photos or movies on your Apple TV. (Of course, iOS 5 AirPlay mirroring will make a future commercial like that much, much more exciting...)

I'm still not a huge fan of the "if you don't have an iPhone" preamble, but at least these get back to more customer facing features, unlike the 3 store ads we had recently. (But hey, at least they're not trying to sell your wife a Tegra 2 processor...!)

Check them out after the break.
