Apple's Knowledge Base once again steps up in the handy-dandy reference chart department with a feature check-list showing highlighting some major features supported by all iPhone models, by the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3G S, and by the new iPhone 3G S alone.
Two iPhones, 6 apps. We know the iPhone 3G S is supposed to be "on average" 2x faster than the iPhone 3G, but stats are stats and what we're interested in is real-world usage. A few seconds here, a dozen or more there, and all of a sudden they add up to minutes.
In this video we launch apps on each iPhone 3.0 device at the same time, but imagine if every time the iPhone 3G S finished first, we immediately launched the next app. We wouldn't make you sit through that much iPhone 3G lag, but that makes the point.
A couple of our readers have written in over the weekend concerned that they still can't activate their iPhone 3G S on AT&T's network. Greg let us know that he was originally assured his Apple Store-purchased iPhone 3G S would be activated within 48 hrs (?!) but now it looks like that's been pushed back another 48 hrs -- or 4 days total.
He forwarded us an email he claims to have received from Apple offering a $30 iTunes credit by way of apology.
Isolated incident or is anyone else experiencing the same problem?
While I don't have anywhere near the midichlorians Jeremy has for all things Jailbreak, I can tell when the infamous iPhone Dev-Team has their game on:
redsn0w is an easy to use, multi-platform, multi-device jailbreaking and unlocking (iPhone 2G only) tool for the iPhone 2G (original iPhone), the iPhone 3G (but not the 3GS) and also the iPod touch (first and second generation). Currently it is available for Windows and Mac OS X (there are some issues using redsn0w with OS X PPC, please use an Intel Mac until we have this problem resolved).
It's been a busy week here at TiPb, what with iPhone 3.0 launching last Wednesday and Apple barely giving us time to catch out breath before iPhone 3G S dropped on Friday. As always, we tried to bring you as much info as fast as we could, so in case you missed anything in the mad rush to the third iPhone generation, here's a roundup:
Every week a few of us from team TiPb, bloggers and forum crew alike, will bring you our current favorite, funnest, most useful App Store apps, WebApps, jailbreak apps, even the occasional accessory, web site, or desktop app if the mood strikes us. As long as they're iPhone (or iPod touch) related, they're fair game.
So who's on deck this week and what are our picks? Find out after the break!
