The Verizon iPhone 4 isn’t the only thing that Apple is touting in its recent commercials -- the company has just unveiled their latest showcasing the iPad, which Cupertino reminds us is an “iconic” device.
With the annual Macworld Expo upon us, iPhone-wielding fans of all things Apple will descend upon our beloved San Francisco. For those of you who’ll be joining us, we’ve put assembled a short list of must-have apps. Load these on your ’Phone or ’Pad and you’ll confidently navigate the City’s many splendors. Might want to load these before you arrive, though. AT&T’s 3G coverage here is less than ideal, and with the VeriPhone still weeks away, you could find your evening slipping away while your downloads trickle in.

We’ve heard rumors that Apple is working on a near-field communication (NFC) payment system for the iPhone before, but new details have emerged that may allow users to pay for goods and services with their iTunes account.
One of the most frustrating hurdles in the iOS development process is beta testing. Given that in most cases, an App can't make its way on to multiple iOS devices without first being accepted into the iTunes App Store, providing test copies of a new mobile application can be an exercise in frustration. Given this restriction, a lot of iOS apps reach consumers unpolished and in dire need of some tinker-work.
