The iPhone 4 includes a front facing camera that can be used to photobomb yourself in a stream of action shots. Every photo opportunity is a chance to have fun and fortunately, Apple has facilitated. However, FaceTime is more than just way to take perfectly angled Facebook photos, it's also a way to utilize the iPhone 4's video conference capabilities. This week's tips will focus on FaceTime set up, troubleshooting, and testing.
Still trying to grab an iPhone 4, seven weeks after it was first launched? You may not be alone, if recent stock inquiries into Apple retail locations are any indication -- the popular handset is still sold out at nearly half of their stores. So much for “Antennagate”…
From today’s “should have seen this one coming” department, Apple has pulled the popular TapTapTap Camera+ app from the App Store after the company let it slip that a rejected feature could easily be enabled through a trick in Mobile Safari. Needless to say, Apple was not amused.
We've all heard the endless onslaught of Verizon iPhone rumors. But lost in all the talk, is what exactly would happen if the iPhone actually sold on Verizon's network. Would it be a big event? Would Verizon's network survive? John Gruber of Daring Fireball offers some insight in his latest column.
The Jersey Shore is a complete anomaly. It’s a reality television show, but without any semblance of actual reality. Regardless, we still wish that we could tan like those guys--or at least fake it. Fortunately, there's an app for that.
With Jersey Shore Tan, you too can oversaturate your photos (and your skin!) to a wonderful orange glow. And if orange isn't enough for you, then fist bump up the tan a few more notches, until you’re a cool crispy brown and resemble the color of perfectly cooked bacon. Mmm, bacon.
Apple just released a new version of the iOS operating system to help address the issues with the PDF security vulnerability that has plagued mobile Safari users for weeks now. The new versions, iOS 4.0.2 for iPhone and iOS 3.2.2 for iPad, will also disable the web-based JailbreakMe service that we all came to know and love.
If you use the iPhone camera at all, you know tapping the screen to take a picture can be a royal pain, especially if you're trying to take a self-portrait. The iPhone 4's front facing camera doesn't make things that much better, since photos are lower resolution. And really, tapping the touch screen to capture is just not very ergonomic. Well, against Apple's better judgement, TapTapTap's Camera+ app provides us with a solution.
Unless you were in a coma (and if you were, we hope you're feeling better now,) you'll recall that last month the media and consumer ballyhoo surrounding the iPhone 4's antenna woes came to a head. At the heart of the issue was the fact that if users held the smartphone in a certain manner that's now come to be affectionatly known as the Death-Grip, the phone would lose a significant amount of signal reception due to a design flaw. In a now legendary email, Steve Jobs suggested that users simply not hold their phones "that way." Well, if dropped-calls and lousy connections weren't reason enough to consider doing just that, an Israeli software company has another you can add to the list: Holding your mobile in a death-grip ups the handset's radiation level.
Earlier this week we told you Apple had given developers the ability to allow educational institutions to get a discount on volume App Store purchases. At the time, Apple hadn't give anyone any information on the volume pricing program, but they have finally explained how this volume licensing program will work.
Orange, one of the UK carriers of the iPhone 4 recently sent out an email to customers letting them know that the white version of the iPhone 4 could be delayed "until the end of the year." The email went on to explain that customers looking to get a white iPhone 4 should consider getting the black version instead.
