TiPb TV 13: iOS 4.3 preview

TiPb TV 13: iOS 4.3 preview

Apple has begun releasing beta versions of iOS 4.3, the next update for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, and we're here to take a look at its biggest and best new features. That's right, Wi-Fi personal hotspot, multitasking gestures and the return of the orientation lock switch are the topics for this episode of TiPb TV!

The personal hotspot will ship with the Verizon iPhone but we don't know how much they'll charge for it yet. AT&T and other GSM iPhones should get it as well with iOS 4.3 but carriers may or may not support it and may charge for it if they do (like tethering now). Given what they charge for Mi-Fi already will it be worth it to you?

Multitasking gestures are just a developer preview right now and Apple has said they won't actually ship for consumers any time soon. I have to admit they're really fun but they might not be ready for prime time yet.

Rene thought Apple would never give us the orientation lock switch back. I thought they may just give us a choice. Guess what they've done? That's right. This time choice wins!

Watch the video for the full tour and check out our complete iOS 4.3 walkthrough for detailed descriptions and screenshots. If you have any questions let us know!

Daily tip: changing the default mail account on your iPhone or iPad

Have multiple email accounts set up on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad and not sure how to set the right one up as your default?

Untethered iOS 4.2.1 Jailbreak for iPhone, iPad shown off on video

Untethered iOS 4.2.1 Jailbreak for iPhone, iPad shown off on video

pod2g of the Chronic Dev Team just teased an untethered iOS 4.2.1 Jailbreak for iPhone (and we presume iPod touch and iPad) on Twitter:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5qNray7FHU < I really don't know what's funny about this. You do ?

The video shows an iPhone 4 running iOS 4.2.1 in all its untethered glory. Apparently this might be coming soon in greenpois0n update though whether or not they'll use it now or save it for when Apple releases iOS 4.3 is unknown. (If they use it now, Apple could patch it in iOS 4.3 and they'll have to come up with yet another Jailbreak).

What do you say, you want iOS 4.2.1 untethered now, now, now or would you prefer them to play it safe so you can quickly untether iOS 4.3 in February or March? Video after the break!

iPad cash register spotted at Grand Central Terminal

iPad cash register spotted at Grand Central Terminal

More and more iOS devices are being used as point-of-sale merchant systems, with the latest sighting coming out of New York's Grand Central Terminal where it's being used as a full-fledged cash register for a quick moving coffee stop.

Small, sleek and fast: this video shows what a great cash register an iPad can make for a high-traffic small business. Here it is getting the java going for the crowds at Joe in Grand Central Terminal in New York.

ShopKeep is the company behind the software that transforms the iPad into a cash register, allowing for things like printing receipts and also offers a full backend system through ShopKeep's BackOffice software. BackOffice lets managers track sales, run data reports and manage inventory.

It's pretty neat to see the iPad used as a cash register and we hope to see more of this in the future. It seems like it makes the transaction process more simple and streamlined.

Check out the video after the break and let us know what you think in the comments!

Griffin TuneJuice 2 Back-up Battery for iPhone - accessory review

The Griffin TuneJuice 2 Back-up Battery for iPhone is a battery charger for iPhone or iPad touch (or traditional iPds) that, instead of being rechargeable, uses AAA batteries. That means to use of the TuneJuice you do not have to constantly find an outlet and make sure you recharge it before your iPhone. You can just throw in fresh batteries and get going. So if you are traveling for a long period of time and worry that you may need to keep a few items charged then this is the charger for you.

To find out more follow us after the break!

iOS 4.3 features: New wait button when adding contact phone numbers

iOS 4.3 features: New wait button when adding contact phone numbers

<img src="/sites/imore.com/files/styles/400w400h/public/images/stories/2011/01/photo5.png" alt="iOS 4.3 features: New wait button when adding contact phone numbers" title=iOS 4.3 features: New wait button when adding contact phone numbers" width="266" height="400" class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-53561" />

A minor but likely very welcome change in iOS 4.3 beta sees the addition of a wait button to the add contact phone number's extended keyboard and the rejiggering of some of the other buttons. Wait will add a semicolon to the number as opposed to pause which adds a comma. Overall, the pause button has moved to where the ghosted 4 button used to be, the plus button has moved to where pause was, star has moved to where plus was and a new wait button has been added to where the ghosted 6 button used to be. Phew.

XBMC for Apple TV , iPad and iPhone 4 available now [jailbreak]

XBMC is now available as a jailbreak app for the Apple TV (2010), iPad and iPhone 4. XBMC, for those that do not know, is a free open source media center application, that until today was only available for Linux, OSX, Windows and the original Xbox.

The Apple TV version is a full XBMC install and allows full network sharing of media, hardware decoding of 720p and 1080p movies plus everything else that XBMC has to offer. The iPad version also offers full hardware accelerated video playback and network access to media. The iPhone 4 has been included in the release however the devs do point out that navigation is a bit frustrating.

The app is jailbreak only and you will not find it in the App Store anytime soon. It is free to install, so what are you waiting for? Check out the videos after the break, one running on the Apple TV2 and the other on the iPad then let us know if you’re going to be jailbreaking and installing XBMC!
