iOS 4.0.1 coming today?

iOS 4.0.1 coming today?

iPhoneHellas.gr is claiming they've heard Apple will release iOS 4 later today. They've gotten that kind of stuff right before, and Apple does have an iPhone 4 press conference scheduled for tomorrow, so the timing would make some sense. iOS 4.0.1 being released would mean the changes to the way bars are shown and reported in the developer beta for iOS 4.1 would be public and could be stated as such by Apple.

It would be a couple weeks earlier than Apple's usual end of July/beginning of August iOS x.0.1 update cycle, but likely welcome by those suffering proximity sensor issues and other iOS 4 bugs.

Ping us if you're iTunes catches an update.

iOS 4.1 features: AVRCP stereo Bluetooth controls

iOS 4.1 features: AVRCP stereo Bluetooth controls

iOS 3.0 introduced A2DP (advanced audio distribution profile) stereo bluetooth playback to iPhone but for some reason Apple never added the accompanying AVRCP (audio/video remote control profile) to go with it... until the new iOS 4.1 beta.

Basically, in iOS 3 and iOS 4, you could play and pause music and other audio but you couldn't control things like volume. The buttons on the Bluetooth device simply didn't work. This was a show-stopper for many users who wanted and needed that kind of control -- for example, to use while driving.

Looks like they've got it now.

Mayor of NYC thinks iPad is amazing

Mayor of NYC thinks iPad is amazing

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is using his iPad "night and day" for both work and pleasure. According to Deputy Mayor Howard Wolfson, "he takes the iPad with him everywhere. He uses it all the time." He even had it accompany him during his visit with Queen Elizabeth last week.

The mayer uses his iPad to read speeches, keep notes, obtain briefing materials, check the weather, get directions with Google maps, and read books and magazines. Bloomberg has a goal to go paperless and the iPad his helping him do just that. However, his staff does keep a briefing book for him as a backup.

Apple holding iPhone 4 press conference on Friday

Apple holding iPhone 4 press conference on Friday

Apple is going to be holding an iPhone 4-related conference on Friday, July 16 at 10pm PT, 1pm ET.

Although not specifically stated, it's not hard to imagine Apple will use the opportunity to address iPhone 4 antenna issues.

(Maybe iOS 4.1 being released in beta a couple weeks earlier than iPhone 3.1 was a precursor?)

More as this develops...

iOS 4.1 - Fewer bars in more places?

iOS 4.1 - Fewer bars in more places?

Is the just released iOS 4.1 beta reporting fewer bars in more places, just like Apple said their next iOS update would? That's what we're hearing... but not (just?) on iPhone 4 -- iPhone 3GS as well.

Where is iOS 4.0.1, iOS 4.x for iPad?

Where is iOS 4.0.1, iOS 4.x for iPad?

There's some confusion in the wake of Apple releasing iOS 4.1 for iPhone and iPod touch to developers today -- namely where is the iOS 4.0.1 bug fix release and where is iOS 4.x for iPad?

iOS 4.1 will be a proper new release, just like iOS 3.1 (iPhone 3.1) was last year, which means developers need to test against it, which means Apple needs to release an early beta for those developers. Last year, iOS 3.1 beta 1 was released on June 30, 2009. So today is a couple weeks earlier than last year's point release beta -- read into that what you will -- but not crazily off schedule.

Letterman, Top Gear, Microsoft poke fun at iPhone 4 antenna issue

So on one hand the hype surrounding iPhone 4 antenna issues has risen to the level of a David Letterman top 10 list and Top Gear joke (see videos after the break), and on the other it's got Microsoft COO Kevin Turner calling it Apple's Vista (which is a bizarre slam on Microsoft's own product):

It's beyond the looking glass. What is Apple going to do? What should they do?
