Monday, June 21 is coming up in a few days, and with it Apple will bring the iOS 4 update for existing iPhone 3G/3GS and iPod touch (second & third generation only) devices. That means that iOS 4 compatible updates are starting to appear in the App Store, and among them is Dropbox, now at 1.2.2.
It’s becoming a bit like a B-movie monster that can’t be killed. We speak, of course, of the persistent rumors that a CDMA, Verizon-compatible iPhone is “coming soon.” But now, with only a week to go before the handset launches in the U.S. and a handful of international GSM carriers, a new report claims that a CDMA iPhone 4 is actually in production.
Apple's iPhone Bumpers are doing surprisingly well. Shipping is actually delayed for several colors, including pink, orange, blue and white--which we can't help assuming is because of Apple's decision to omit the white iPhone 4 from its debut date. The colored Bumpers won't be shipping until July 16th, though the black Bumpers will be readily available come June 24th.
Guitar amplifiers have been going through an identity crisis lately. For years, one amp with a good sound was all fine and dandy, but then digital technology figured out how to capture and cram the sounds of many amps into one program--and who doesn’t like choice? Now the realm of digital amp emulation comes to Apple’s handhelds with AmpliTube, aided and abetted by the iRig adapter, and the results are rocktacular.
Apple has released a statement on its official website stating the following:
Yesterday Apple and its carrier partners took pre-orders for more than 600,000 of Apple’s new iPhone 4. It was the largest number of pre-orders Apple has ever taken in a single day and was far higher than we anticipated, resulting in many order and approval system malfunctions. Many customers were turned away or abandoned the process in frustration. We apologize to everyone who encountered difficulties, and hope that they will try again or visit an Apple or carrier store once the iPhone 4 is in stock.
Tuesday was admittedly a crazy day for both Apple and AT&T, as pent-up demand for the iPhone 4 crushed both companies’ servers and even sent the telco’s retail outlets to pen and paper to collect pre-orders. One more sinister element of the day’s insanity is the rumored security breaches on AT&T’s website, which the company is now said to be looking into.
As you’ve know doubt heard by now, the iPhone 4 is off to a rocky start, with pre-orders sold out most everywhere, including Apple’s website and AT&T. But the partners in crime are laughing all the way to the bank, it would seem, as a new report claims the pent-up demand for the iPhone 4 is as much as 10 times larger than the previous model.
