There's never a shortage of speculation surrounding an Apple product launch or update. The release of iOS 4.3 is no exception. Since iOS 4.2.1 became available for download, the Internet has kept itself busy trading in rumors, scrutinizing build notes, and picking apart the code of iOS 4.3 test builds in the hope that doing so might reveal what was next for Apple's trusty mobile operating system. Most likely, all will be revealed at this week's Apple Event. But do you really want to wait that long to find out what Cupertino has in store for us? Of course not. To that end, we've put together a list of what we know so far about the next iteration of iOS. The short version? It's gonna be awesome.
The invitations have been sent, the banners are flying at Yerba Buena and all that remains now is to see what Apple has on deck for us come Wednesday, March 2 at a special media event that will is expected to reveal the first sequel to the company’s market-leading iPad.
Hesitant about adopting the iPhone because of its massive price tag? Buying an unsubsidized iPhone can be a bit pricey for some, especially if you're incredibly eager and don't have the upgrade discount for a new handset. Fortunately for the frugal, Apple CFO Tim Cook told Bernstein Research analyst Toni Sacconaghi this week that Apple's looking at the prepaid market for its business strategy.
Never mind the fact that Apple has yet to start selling a white iPhone 4 -- a part leak from China seems to indicate that it isn’t stopping the company from possibly offering the next iPad in white as well.
If you’ve been following the iPad 2 rumors the last couple of months and are drooling in anticipation of what Apple might be announcing on Wednesday, March 2 -- well, let’s just say you might want to temper those expectations, if rumors are to be believed.
Did you hear the news? Supposedly, Apple will be lifting the lid on a newfangled can of MacBook Pro updates this week, presumably on Thursday, February 24 to coincide with CEO Steve Jobs’ birthday (no, we’re not making that up!) -- and here are five very good reasons why you should care.
We’ll all have to feign surprise on Thursday when Apple announces new MacBook Pro models, since details about the notebook refresh have been leaking out steadily for days. Now it appears the full specs have been leaked for a new 13-inch model, complete with an image of the new Light Peak port, rechristened as “Thunderbolt.”
Although Apple has yet to send invitations, a new report claims that the iPad 2 will be officially announced at a media event held in San Francisco on Wednesday, March 2, just a bit more than a week away.
While everyone is anticipating new MacBook Pro models this week, no one really knows for sure what new features we might see. On Monday, a couple of possibilities surfaced involving a larger trackpad and dedicated SSD storage for Mac OS X system files to allow faster performance and startup.
If you’re in the market for a new MacBook Pro, we’d suggest holding off on that purchase until later this week -- although in the case of Apple’s own online store, you won’t have much of a choice, anyway.
