The big news of the today is undoubtedly iOS 5 and iCloud, but Apple and its third-party developers have been pushing out updates and little pre-Halloween tricks and treats all day long as well. But that’s not the only thing going on for this mid-October hump day -- here’s the rest of the news for Wednesday, October 12, 2011.
Can you feel the excitement in the air? iOS 5 and iCloud will arrive on Wednesday, and the telltale signs include a new iTunes 10.5 pushed out today. But that’s not all that’s making news this week -- here’s a look at the latest stuff we’ve been tracking for this fine Tuesday, October 11, 2011.
It was both a blessing and a curse to be an Apple fan last week, with the iPhone 4S announcement immediately overshadowed the death of co-founder Steve Jobs. But now, the second full week of October is in full swing, with more than a million preordered iPhone 4S units headed to customers this Friday. Here’s what else is making news for Monday, October 10, 2011.
So much for underwhelming! Apple announced on Monday morning that the new iPhone 4S has already topped one million preorders -- and that’s just in the first 24 hours. It may look like an iPhone 4 and quack like an iPhone 4, but the iPhone 4S is anything but fowl.
It has definitely been a week filled with shocks. No iPhone 5 was one thing, but it paled in comparison to losing the man who started it all, Steve Jobs. We look back this week with sadness, with fond memories, and with just a bit of Steve's last product.
It’s Friday at last, and what a grueling week it has been. Many of you are probably groggy from staying up late (or getting up early) to preorder a new iPhone 4S, hung over from the “Let’s talk iPhone” event or just plain bummed out about the loss of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. But don’t despair -- let’s recap the events for Friday, October 7 before we embrace the weekend.
Alright, so iPhone 4S owners won’t receive the jealous stares that early adopters wait on long lines for, but it remains to be seen if “the most amazing iPhone yet” will languish on shelves while would-be buyers sort through the myriad Android options.
To say it’s what’s inside that counts is a tad cliche, we know, but the new iPhone has a lot more going for it than a capital ‘S.’ But that does that mean you should run out and sign over two more years of your life to your phone carrier? We’re here to help you weigh the pros and cons of whether or not you should pre-order and get that phone, or hold out for something greater.
It’s that time of the week when our thoughts stray from the work at hand to what we might do this Columbus Day weekend, but the tech industry is pushing through hump day with a variety of news items you’re sure to enjoy. Work off that post-keynote hangover by reading the latest news for Wednesday, October 5 starting… now!
