Apple Stores already selling out of iPhone 4?

Apple Stores already selling out of iPhone 4?

One of our forum moderators, Justin Horn, just watched Apple Store employees at The Falls in Florida tell people that they'd "sold out" of iPhone 4, and if they were at a certain point in line (i.e. further down than Apple had stock to cover) that they could start making their way home.

We're betting this doesn't include those with confirmed reservations, but if you were thinking of heading down just to try your luck... good luck.

We've seen lines go around (and around) the block, and mobs of people in front of the Apple Stores. Bigger lines than the iPhone 3GS launch, bigger than the iPad launch, some Apple employees are saying these are their biggest lines ever. And that's with Apple doing pre-orders and starting deliveries yesterday.

If you're in line and your Apple Store is starting to sell out, tell us where

Farmville for iPhone now in App Store

Zynga's Farmville has just sprouted its way onto the iPhone and is just waiting for you to harvest it via the iTunes App Store.

You can access your existing Facebook farm or start a new agrarian life from scratch. There's also exclusive iPhone/iPod touch content -- we've already seen snow leopards in honor of Apple's current Mac OS X -- and all of the same seeds, fruits, vegetables, and animals casual gamers have grown to love.

If you try it out, let us know how you like it.

iMovie for iPhone 4 now in iTunes App Store

iMovie for iPhone 4 now in iTunes App Store

iMovie, Apple's first exclusive iPhone 4 app, is no available for purchase from the iTunes App Store for $4.99. (At least the US App Store, we can't find it in all of them yet -- let us know if it's in yours).

The demos have all looked beyond slick, finger-painting with clips and transitions, themes and titles. Will it hold up to actual field use, beyond magic moments, cute kids, and pet tricks? Try it out and let us know what you think (especially the video editors out there -- we want your expert opinions).

Full Apple description after the break.

And TiPb's iPhone 4 give-away goes to...

And TiPb's iPhone 4 give-away goes to...

We asked you to show us why TiPb should give you an iPhone 4 (technically a gift-certificate for the US Apple Retail Store in the amount of $499) and boy did you show us. You made it so tough for me to pick a winner, I didn't even try -- I recused myself and made the folks at SPE do it for me (sorry, I love you all too much, I would have gone all Oprah, given the to everyone, and gotten fired).

SPE did pick a winner, however. And we're going to announce who it is, who's getting the iPhone 4 -- and the surprise twist we also came up with! -- after the break!

iPhone 4 experiencing signal drop when antenna band is held?

iPhone 4 experiencing signal drop when antenna band is held?

Starting off with a complaint in the MacRumors forums and soliciting other user feedback from there, Gizmodo is compiling a hefty list of people whose brand new iPhone 4 would drop from full bars to next to none -- when they held it by the stainless steel antenna band.

Is it shorting something when both parts are connected by a conductive human hand? Is it a pressure issue? Just some units or all of them?

Apple releases statement on white iPhone 4 delay

Apple releases statement on white iPhone 4 delay

On the cusp of iPhone 4's official rollout tomorrow, Apple has issued a statement about why the white model, introduced alongside the black by Steve Jobs at WWDC 2010, hasn't yet been made available to order:

White models of Apple’s new iPhone 4 have proven more challenging to manufacture than expected, and as a result they will not be available until the second half of July. The availability of the more popular iPhone 4 black models is not affected.

So, anyone going to wait for white?

Apple iPhone 4 back glass can be scratched?

Apple iPhone 4 back glass can be scratched?

iFixit claimed the front display on Apple's new iPhone 4 was protected by Corning's Gorilla Glass, but Engadget's review unit is already showing scratches on the back side. Was it an earlier test unit not up to release unit standards? Is the Gorilla Glass only on the front and not the back? Is Gorilla Glass not as scratch resistant as we thought? Is it not really Gorilla Glass at all?

Engadget did get a little rough with their iPhone 4 review unit, but no doubt so will users. And the front seems to be holding up fine.

Potential fix for lost 3G data connections following iOS 4 update?

Potential fix for lost 3G data connections following iOS 4 update?

Losing your AT&T data connection following the iOS 4 update? We got a tip from a TiPb reader who spent some time on the phone with Apple support. If you're having the same problem (typically it's people with unlimited data, like we mentioned yesterday), try using his steps below to get it back. He said he did it with 2 friends that lost data as well and it seems to work -- at least as a temp fix.

More from iPhone 4 teardown - is Apple A4 1GHz?

More from iPhone 4 teardown - is Apple A4 1GHz?

We previously mentioned iFixit was tearing down the iPhone 4, and had confirmed 512MB of RAM and said the front and back displays were Corning Gorilla Glass. Well they're done with the teardown now and here are some more details.

The only area where we're still unclear is the Apple A4 system-on-chip. iFixit says 1GHz below but Engagdet thought that, while faster than iPhone 3GS, it was slower than the confirmed 1GHz iPad, and MacRumors rough benchmarks bear that out. So what's the deal on the chip? Is it doing more or did Apple clock it down to get that amazing battery life and lower the thermal impact?

More from iFixit after the break.
