iTunes 10.5 beta for Mac is -- finally -- 64-bit, Cocoa app?

iTunes 10.5 beta for Mac is -- finally -- 64-bit, Cocoa app?

MacRumors is reporting that the iTunes 10.5 beta for Mac runs in 64-bit mode on Mac OS X Lion, and since the old Carbon APIs don't support 64-bit, it must have, at long, long last, finally been re-written as a Cocoa app. Before you get too excited, however, it still runs in 32-bit mode on older versions of OS X and doesn't particularly seem very Cocoa-like, at least at this stage. (Hey, at least the

I'd always assumed maintaining Windows compatibility was was hamstrung iTunes, forced it to do too much and stick with older API far too long. Sort of revenge for Microsoft Office on Mac. Wrapping up everything OS X does, like CoreAnimation, CoreAudio, and the other frameworks and bundling them up for Windows can't be trivial, after all.

Well known Jailbreak expert Chronic, of Chronic Dev Team, discovered a couple of hidden menu pages have been found in the latest beta of iOS 5, confirming that Apple is heavily involved in bringing system wide voice integration to iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Voice recognition was widely rumored to be coming in iOS 5 however there was little mention of it at the recent  WWDC keynote. We did see it briefly mentioned on one of the slides but that was all.

JailbreakMe.com updated with cryptic image.

JailbreakMe.com updated with cryptic image.

JailbreakMe.com has been updated with an image, that could suggest a new PDF exploit.

JailbreakMe.com is famous for offering a simple way to jailbreak by using an exploit directly from within Mobile Safari without having to plug the iPhone/iPad into a computer. JailbreakMe developer, @Comex, has updated the site with a teaser for another potential exploit in iOS. According to Comex's Twitter, the image is of Mt. Snow ski slope with a sign that shows a 'black diamond' (which is a skiing symbol for 'advanced') and the word 'PDF'.

Is this for a long-awaited iPad 2 jailbreak? Or has a new exploit been found in iOS 5?

Tip of the Day: How to downgrade from iOS 5 beta back to iOS 4

Tip of the Day: How to downgrade from iOS 5 beta back to iOS 4

Wondering how to downgrade from iOS 5 to iOS 4? Maybe you rushed out to test your app on the next big thing but now have to deal with a bug in the here and now version, and you don't want to buy an additional device, or maybe you just don't have what you need yet and you'd prefer to wait for a later beta. Either way, it is possible to go back to iOS 4. Last year we showed you how to downgrade from the beta version of iOS 4 as well. I am pleasantly surprised with how good the first beta version of iOS 5 is, but if for any reason you need to go back to iOS 4, we'll show you a couple ways after the break!

Sonic and Sega Allstars Racing heading to the iPad

Sonic and Sega Allstars Racing and to be frank, it is Mario Kart with the Sega characters that we know and love replacing the Nintendo ones that we know and love but can’t get! The game follows the same lines as Mario Kart; offering power ups, drifting, 12 different tracks,multiple characters and multiplayer gaming over Bluetooth, WiFi and online via Game Center.

The game is coming later this month for $4.99 and will be a universal binary; running on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Take a look at the video after the break and let us know if you plan on picking this one up when it hits the App Store!

iOS 5 shows evidence of 1080p video, will it come to iPad and Apple TV?

iOS 5 shows evidence of 1080p video, will it come to iPad and Apple TV?

If you have an iPad running iOS 5, it looks like you can now sync 1080p videos. Previously, iTunes would refuse to sync 1080p video to iPad, and it still won't sync to an iPhone or iPod touch. However, since the Apple TV also runs iOS, could we be seeing support for 1080p in the near future? Will iTunes begin to support 1080p movies? Will our bandwidth?

Problems with certain Verizon iPad 2 causing Apple to recall shipments?

Problems with certain Verizon iPad 2 causing Apple to recall shipments?

Sounds like some Verizon iPad 2 models in Apple Stores and in transit to customers are being recalled, possibly due to some problem that prevents cellular activation:

Verizon iPad 2s aren’t being sent back due to engraving. If someone activates a cellular connection on the device, then wants to view or edit account information, they can’t. They receive a message that it is activated, and that’s it. I saw someone open at least 6 looking for one that didn’t do it. It’s device specific, not software.

Apple Stores have just been asked to send back certain serial numbers, while the on-delivery orders will likely be replaced with unaffected models.
