Securing a contract to provide Apple components for its iOS devices is only half the battle -- you’ve got to keep pushing the envelope or Cupertino might look elsewhere. That appears to be the case with the iPhone’s ambient light sensor, according to reports out of the Far East.
You waited months for the white iPhone 4 to become available at a store nearest you. You were so determined to hold out longer than your friends for the now 9-month old technology, that you can't believe its white chassis is finally in your hands. But wait! Why let the whole world see it? Why not cover its beauty with a protective, decorative case? Why not one of the cases featured in today's Best Case Scenario?
This week, we're covering iPhone 4 cases from Incipio, art- and eco-conscious BlueTrek with their LostDog line, XtremeMac, and the rugged, super-protective Otterbox.
The software update we've been waiting for since, um, last week, is here to address concerns of the iPhone tracking location data. The update will reduce the size of the cache on the iPhone that stores this iOS crowd-sourced location data and will no longer back it up to iTunes, which keeps score of where you've been. Additionally, the update will also delete the cache entirely when Location Services is turned off. So now, you can continue living like all incognito and never worry about any of us finding out where you've been. You sneaky dog.
Now that the white iPhone 4 is finally on the streets, it can start to fade from legend into Apple history -- but not until the requisite teardown reveals any final secrets the ivory handset may hold deep inside.
The white edition of the iPhone 4 finally arrived in stores on Thursday, and users of the ivory model have discovered something strange about the handset -- it’s ever-so-slightly thicker than its black sibling, and no one seems to know why.
Everyone’s talking about rumored voice recognition features in iOS 5, but the future is now thanks to Voice Control. With it you can control two of your iOS 4 device’s most important features –– making phone calls and playing music –– with simple spoken directions. The trick is using Voice Control’s pre-set commands to make it understand you.
Never you mind the fact that the photo seen here features a white iPhone 4 -- the far more interesting aspect of this spy shot is that it’s an iPhone 4 running 3G on T-Mobile, which is currently not possible due to differences in the carrier’s radio bands.
They say the best camera is the one that’s always with you -- and for most of us, that’s likely to be an iPhone. And in the case of the iPhone 4, Apple included a very capable 720p HD video shooter -- provided that you know how to get the best results from it.
After years of rumors about the iPhone landing on Verizon Wireless, when the announcement finally came in January, the actual launch of the iPhone 4 on the carrier seemed anti-climactic -- but fear not, the real excitement will come with the next model.
After so many stops and starts, lately we have been pondering what will come first, the iPhone 5, or a white iPhone 4? Or perhaps even a white iPhone 5? Well, it would seem we may actually see a white iPhone 4 soon, according to a report out today, which would keep in line with Phil Schiller's original hints of a white iPhone 4 due out this spring.
