Letter from Apple regarding iPhone 4 problems



Apple has published an official public letter of response to concerns about the iPhone 4 signaling problems. Some would say this is very nice and great. Others would complain this is just a cop out. Well, at least we see that Apple is aware of users' problems. Apple claims, that it's just a software problem of calculating how many bars of signal strength to display. Apple says there is no hardware problem.

Here it the full letter:

Mugged WWDC attendee got a new iPad and an e-mail from Jobs



mug1

A wonderful story happened with one WWDC attendee.

One developer of China's popular IM client TenCent got an invite to an Apple's annual conference and made a long trip to San Francisco where he was robbed. As a result he got his iPad smashed and a few signigicant injuries. The story would be sad if this guy didn't go to Apple Store and had his iPad replaced for free after revealing his story. Moreover, when the developer checked his e-mail later, he found a letter from Steve Jobs with a short "Safe travels home" message.

Photographic coverage can be seen below.

Hysteria around iPad in Japan



ginzapaplestore234

New article posted by the Wall Street Journal reveals details on the hysteria around iPad in Japan, where people waited for days to acquire this innovation product. The exclusive carrier of the 3G in Japan Softbank reported it stopped making reservations for the iPad after three days.

"Softbank says it is under strict orders from Apple not to disclose how many reservations it has accepted or how many will be distributed Friday. It wouldn't even disclose whether consumers could buy the iPad on Friday without a reservation."

New York Times reports this is not the first Apple device that has such a huge success in this gadget-loving nation. Moreover, the Cupertino's company has 72% share of overall Japan's smartphone market.

The edition claims 1200 people lined up to buy an iPad at the Apple Store that is situated in Central Tokio.

iPad Camera Connection Kit will be avaliable in late April for $29



Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit consists of two adapters and will allow users to transfer digital photos directly to their iPad via either USB or SD card. Now it is listed in the Apple Store with late April as the shipping date. The price is $29. The kit supports all of the standard photo formats including JPEG and RAW.

It is still unclear if these adapters could be used as storage for videos and music.  For instance, you can buy this kit and several SD cards to and possibly increase iPad's storage.

Apple now offering iPhones contract free



Today Apple began selling iPhones without AT&T plan. Apple's new policy is that anyone can walk into an Apple Store and pick up an iPhone 8GB for $499, 16GB for $599 and 32GB for $699. They allow one unit per customer per day, up to 10 iPhones.

The iPhones are still locked to AT&T's network. Of course, these devices will be sold with the latest baseband which is not yet unlockable; however, you can use RedSn0w to perform a tethered jailbreak.

iPad Battery Replacement Will Cost 99$



Ipad

Apple posted a new document on its website about iPad battery replacement, where it is said:

"If your iPad requires service due to the battery’s diminished ability to hold an electrical charge, Apple will replace your iPad for a service fee."

Apple also added that your data will not be moved to a new iPad, so you'll need to sync your device to iTunes to backup all the personal information it contains.

The battery replacement will cost you 99$ (and 6.95$ for shipment). Apple claims the process will take one week from sending the iPad to receiving replacement device. You can replace your battery in local Apple Store or at the office of Apple Authorized Service Provider. To get further information contact Apple Technical Support.

iPad's Release Date Is Rumored To Be March 26



Black strip on the top

The Examiner reporter Daryl Reino claimed yesterday the March 26 for iPad's release date is "very likely". He said he has information from some unnamed Apple store manager in Southern California.

Daryl also reported Apple employees will start training March 10, and the official commercials will begin to air on TV starting March 15. It will be emphasizing the e-book capabilities of the device. Those who camp out for the new device will receive some "special gift".

As we wrote before, some manufacturing bottleneck has been lengthening the production terms, but Daryl said it will not delay the launch of iPad (though the number of devices will be much more limited).

Apple: We found sexual content to be inappropriate



 

As we wrote before, Apple started to delete apps with sexual-content in App Store two days ago. That was explained by changing their moderating guidelines. Yesterday Apple representatives commented on this situation:

“Whenever we receive customer complaints about objectionable content we review them. If we find these apps contain inappropriate material we remove them and request the developer make any necessary changes in order to be distributed by Apple.”

But since the Frasier Spears filed the radar bugs in order to filter the inappropriate content at his school and blogged about it, the problem seems to be solved. Obviously, it will be better for Apple to implement soft porn filters that prohibit access to apps with dubious content rather than change their policy.
