We were as excited as the rest of you to finally get our hands on iOS 4.2.1 Monday -- that is, until a simple update on our iPhone 4 went horribly awry and several restore attempts also failed. Before the fear washes over you, read on.
The iPhone 4 is a phenomenal on-the-go camera. It takes wonderful pictures outside in the sunlight, and crisp, clear photos in the evening with the HDR setting. However, getting that perfect photo is really hard to do when you're holding on to the iPhone 4 with a shaky hand, which is why a mobile tripod is an excellent solution. Joby's new GorillaMobile for the iPhone 4 does just that, though if you're looking for a tripod that doesn't require its own case, you might want to look elsewhere.
Apple successfully launched its online store in China this week, which as usual includes the company’s iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS handsets -- the latter of which promptly sold out a record-breaking 10 hours later.
The white iPhone 4 has slowly become the modern day unicorn; you may believe it exists, but we haven't been shown any evidence from Apple that it does, or that the device is even in full production yet. The Cult of Mac tries to shed some light on the situation by explaining the real reason behind the white iPhone 4 delay.
We bet that by now you’ve had the opportunity to try out Apple’s newly released beta of FaceTime on the Mac. Here at Mac|Life, we’ve definitely had a lot of fun testing it, but we recently thought it would be a cool idea to make it even more useful. What if you could use FaceTime on the Mac to check in on your house, pets, or perhaps use it as a security cam on your stealthy-looking MacBook Air?
After Apple announced that 14.1 million more iPhones entered the world in their last fiscal quarter of 2010, it’s only natural for the speculation to turn back to the mythical Verizon iPhone -- which may actually exist and getting put through field tests right now.
