Since the first iPhone debuted in 2007 -- and right up through this week’s iOS 4.3.3 update -- installing a new software version on your handset has meant jacking into iTunes. But that could change starting with iOS 5 later this year.
It’s not much of a secret that Apple is up to something involving cloud-based services beyond MobileMe, and another piece of the puzzle may have just fallen into place with the rumored purchase of a domain name, iCloud.com.
Buyers who have long been eager for the white iPhone 4, may get their due this week according to a new report. Apple reportedly began this weekend preparing their retail segment for an imminent launch of the white iPhone 4 model, which if true, would bring to an end a long wait for consumers since last July.
A new report from Reuters claims that Apple’s cloud-based “music locker” service is ready to go, after rumors have run rampant about it for months -- but the company is still working to seal a deal with major record labels so they don’t wind up going it alone like Amazon has already done.
Now that we’ve all gotten over the disappointment that there won’t be a new iPhone in June and the long wait until September begins, we’ll have to console ourselves with rumors such as this one, about a potential “iPhone 4S” being tested by handpicked game developers.
Hopefully by now you’ve gotten over the fact there won’t be an iPhone 5 released in July, and you’ve made your peace with it -- but that doesn’t mean that you’ll be waiting until next year, at least according to three sources talking to Reuters.
Call us impatient, but documenting the life and times of Apple and its various product lines can sometimes be an exercise in frustration. Whether it’s the mythical white iPhone 4 or an updated version of iWork for Mac, we’re often left tapping our fingers -- and here’s a look at a some of the products we’ve been waiting for the longest.
Let's see, we've had our refresh of the MacBook Pro now, as well as the iPad. What's next on the docket? The iMac perhaps? A new rumor today has supplies tightening for the product, and you know what that can only mean!
If MobileMe and iWork were murder mysteries, you could say that the plot just thickened, as it were. An Apple source has revealed that the company is ending rebate programs for both applications, leading to speculation that refreshes are on the way.
