Apple’s Mac OS X software engineers were busy on Friday before leaving for the holiday weekend here in the U.S., pushing out a new build of the forthcoming Mac OS X 10.6.8 that appears to offer the promised ability to squash the MacDefender malware as well as Mac App Store preparations for Lion this summer.
There have been some curious rumors lately that Apple plans to rush out a gold master for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, despite many developers complaining of bugs in need of squashing. Cupertino just pushed out a second beta of the next Mac OS X to hopefully alleviate some of their suffering.
While Apple was busy on Monday night seeding a new build of Mac OS X 10.6.7 to developers, an inside source is claiming that the company may jump the gun and release the final iOS 4.3 build to users as early as Tuesday at 10am PST.
With a third beta of iOS 4.3 released to developers this week, everyone is wondering when Apple might release the official version for all to enjoy. According to a review of the Verizon iPhone by New York Times writer David Pogue, it may be soon.
There's nothing that warms the cockles of a Apple fanboy's heart more than a freshly discovered listing for "unknownHardware" nestled away in a bit of software. If you listen closely, you'll hear the screams of joy sounding out across the globe, for "unknownHardware" has indeed been listed for the rumor mongers to wax speculative over.
The earlier release of the latest iPhone/iPad software development kit
has been updated to a Beta 2 release. As we get closer to the official
sell date on the iPad, we're getting hopeful and excited for what kind
of wonderful newness our iPhone's will be picking up.
