iOS 4.2 pushed back to November 24th?

According to sources close to Apple, the release of iOS 4.2 for iPhone and iPad has been delayed until November 24th. The Telegraph reports:

But a source that works closely with Apple said that the company had shelved its original plan to release the software update today, and had instead pushed back the launch until later this month.

Although this isn't technically a delay (Apple officially announced that iOS 4.2 will be released sometime in November), it was thought that Apple might have been planning to release iOS 4.2 today.

Google Instant Showing up for some iOS users?

Google Instant appears to be showing up on the Safari browser for some iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad users. I just checked mine and I've yet to have it roll out here in good old Michigan City (we don't even have 3G yet, so my expectations aren't that high). For those of you not familiar with Google Instant, you search on Google as you normally do but instead of having to hit the search button and wait for the page to come back, results populate as you type.

How to setup LockInfo for iPhone [Jailbreak]

LockInfo is a great app available to jailbreakers that once again fills a functionality gap -- this one making up for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad's poor notification system. Until Apple implements a better solution, David Ashman has done an incredible job supplementing notifications with LockInfo.

Even though LockInfo is an extremely intuitive and powerful app, the setup can be a bit tedious. But when you get it right, you'll be in notification heaven! Hit the jump for a quick guide and a video with some tips for optimally configuring LockInfo.

*As a side note, LockInfo is $4.99 right now, as of November 7, 2010 - that price will go to $7.99, so if you've been contemplating, you may want to jump on the current price. There is also a 14 day trial if you would like to test it out first.

Mac OS X 10.7 Lion brings iOS, iPad innovations back to the Mac

Steve Jobs today gave a hint at the future of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, and that future is... iOS and iPad!

  • Multitouch gestures
  • App Store
  • App home screens (with Folders)
  • Full screen apps
  • Auto save
  • Apps resume when launched

It's not going to be a multitouch Mac. Jobs says Apple tried it but vertical touch surfaces are tiring and don't work. That's why Apple has made multitouch trackpads for laptops, and Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad for desktops. That's how they're going to do multitouch.

Mac App Store won't be exclusive but Jobs thinks it will be the best. Same 70/30 developer split, one click downloads, free and paid, auto instal, auto updates, licensed for use on all your personal macs.

LaunchPad will be the homescreen for Macs.

Mission Control will unify Spaces, Exposé, Dashboard, full screen apps.

Screenshots after the break. And check out Apple.com's new Mac OS X 10.7 Lion page for more.
