iPad 2, iPhone 5, Apple TV (2011) detailed?

iPad 2, iPhone 5, Apple TV (2011) detailed?

Engadget -- which doesn't just run any old rumor mind you -- claims they have the goods on the next generation iPad 2, iPhone 5, and Apple TV (2011). The big news, if accurate, seems to be a blazingly fast, dual-core ARM Cortex A9-based Apple A5 system-on-chip (SoC) and a switch to dual GSM/CDMA (but not LTE) Qualcomm radios that can run on both AT&T and Verizon. (Which our buddy Mickey Papillon first heard were Apple-bound back at CES 2010.)

iPhone 5 is said to be a complete redesign, which would be very different than the identical casings used for both iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS. A "total rethink" that's being tested but only on Apple's campus (so it won't turn up on the blogs, obviously). Apple has thus far introduced new iPhones in June.

iPad 2 still seems set for an April launch as expected. In addition to being slimmer and sleeker, it will include a higher resolution screen similar to but not the same as the current Retina Displays (yeah, we're confused by these back and forth rumors too!), front and rear cameras (FaceTime, of course), and an SD card slot (though no USB, sorry). It'll also have that Qualcomm chipset and Apple A5 proc.

Apple TV (2011), courtesy of the A5 chipset, will be able to play 1080p HD video "like running water". Whether or not this is also on a yearly cycle, meaning we'll have to wait until September 2011 to see it alongside the next generation iPod touch remains to be seen.

Again, these are all rumors and while Engadget is typically solid things can and will change. Apple reportedly had a more conservative "backup" iPhone 4 in case the one we got didn't pan out, so they could have a more conservative "backup" iPhone 5 as well. Also, Apple has been known to spread disinformation. It is fun to speculate though so let us know what you think -- are these the next generation iOS devices you've been waiting for?

Multifl0w update brings Cards/Pages-style multitasking to iPhone [Jailbreak]

Multifl0w update brings Cards/Pages-style multitasking to iPhone [Jailbreak]

Multifl0w was recently updated in Cydia and brings a WebOS-like "Cards" (or Mobile Safari "Pages" if you're Apple-centric) interface to iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad multitasking system.

Multifl0w has been available in Cydia for some time now, but previously only allowed for an exposé display of apps (up to 9 at a time) running in the background. The mod features smooth animations and is low on system resources, and also packs full Activator integration for gesture support. If you've ever used ProSwitcher in the past then you'll be familiar with the way Multifl0w handles app switching.

I prefer Multifl0w over the stock iOS app-switcher dock and have been using it on both my iPhone and iPad for the past day or so with no crashes or hiccups. Multifl0w is available in the Cydia Store now for $4.99. Check out the pics after the jump, and let us know if you've seen any bugs or issues with the update in the comments!

State of the iPhone iOS 4.3 Jailbreak

State of the iPhone iOS 4.3 Jailbreak

I've been receiving a lot of questions about the state of current jailbreaks, especially when it comes to the just released iOS 4.3 beta and the Verizon iPhone (demo models ran iOS 4.2.5). The jailbreak community is working on a jailbreak but they have stated it will not come out as long as iOS 4.3 is in beta. There's a good reason for this. Most jailbreakers already realize it's a cat and mouse game with Apple.

If one of the dev teams has an exploit, they don't want to burn it. If they release it now, Apple can patch it before the final release and it's of use to no one. Unlocker @MuscleNerd isn't planning on releasing an unlock until iOS 4.3 is official, and for good reason. Here's what he has to say -

Official iPhone unlock statement: no unlock will be released until after 4.2.5 or official 4.3 (whichever is last) is out

I can't imagine a general jailbreak tool being any different. No point burning exploits for no good reason. So on that front, just be patient. And as always, don't upgrade right away if you plan on jailbreaking.

In the mean time, you can make sure you save your SHSH blobs if you're already jailbroken. You can also read through our jailbreak starter's guide if you're curious but new to the jailbreak scene.

Click through for a current list of firmwares and what your jailbreak options are under each firmware. We've also got some links handy after the break to walkthroughs explaining each method.

App Store close to 10 billion downloads, win $10,000 iTunes gift card from Apple

App Store close to 10 billion downloads, win $10,000 iTunes gift card from Apple

Well it looks as though Apple's App Store is nearing the 10 billion downloads mark and if you are the person who makes Apple hit the 10 billionth download you could be $10,000 richer (well in the form of an iTunes gift card that is)! Seems like that would be the best app you would have ever downloaded. You can also enter for the gift card without downloading an app but I personally will be checking their site and seeing where the numbers are and at least try and be the 10 billionth download. One can dream right?

First Direct, first UK banking app for iPhone, iPad that lets you carry out transactions on the go

Online UK bank First Direct has launched an iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad app that lets you view your statement but also carry out some simple transactions too. Other UK banking apps are limited to viewing your account statements which is a handy feature to have; First Direct has taken it a step further.

The app will allow you to view your balances and your last 20 transactions, make transfers between your accounts but most importantly, make payments to other personal accounts or organisations. To use the service you must already be a registered First Direct internet banking user and payments can only be made to those accounts that you have setup online already.

Dear Google: removing H.264 support from Chrome is kinda evil

Dear Google: removing H.264 support from Chrome is kinda evil

Google has recently announced that they're removing H.264 -- the video compression open standard used by everything from iPad and iPhone to YouTube and Netflix -- from their Chrome browser. Up until now Google has been the only company to support all the major video codecs, including H.264, OGG Theora, and their own, newly open-sourced WebM. Apple supports H.264, as does Microsoft, and Firefox supports only OGG Theora.

Why the sudden change? Some might say to hurt Apple, whose iOS and iTunes depend heavily on the technology and have shown no signs of slowing down even after Google decided to stop so much partnering and start much more competing with Apple directly in the mobile OS and media services space. Others might say it's simply to give Google a competitive advantage and push adoption of their own WebM format. Neither motives are mutually exclusive but again put the advancement of standards-based web technology on the back burner -- something Google once championed. (Hey, you know it's bad when Microsoft is chiding you over lack of standards support, okay?)
