iPhone OS 3.0: 802.11n and FM radio





radio_cassette_recorder

Over the weekend, hints of several additional features for the next-generation iPhone were revealed. Among them was the discovery that text strings in the iPhone OS 3.0 software reference a new Broadcom wireless chip, BCM4329, which supports 802.11n wireless connectivity. In digging through the specs for the chip, 9 to 5 Mac has discovered that it also supports both reception and transmission of FM radio signals. The finding, however, doesn't mean that Apple will necessarily enable these features in the new iPhone.

Lisa and Toyo demonstrate the Star Guitar iPhone app (AppStore link). You can play back synth guitar versions of popular songs by just tapping on chord buttons on your iPhone. What makes this video is the composition and the editing. It is amazing. Seriously, just watch it.

Apple uses a jailbroken iPhone in patent application



Recently we talked about Apple's second patent about biometric security. The funny thing is that the images used in this patent show a jailbroken firmware 1.x iPhone, with installed Installer.app, SMBPrefs  and the iWood Realize theme from the iSpazio repository. There are also "Terminal", "Game", "VRecord", "Blocks" and others.

Apple patents a biometric recognition system for iPhone and MacBook



Apple filed a new patent that shows a new system of biometric recognition for the safety of iPhone and MacBook. Currently the only way to protect our devices is to use a security code, which is not safe enough. In the future Apple plans to integrate a sensor below the screen to scan our fingerprints when we execute the "slide to unlock" .

Other security methods may be that the voice recognition or facial recognition. This might include the future implementation of a front camera. Apple goes so far as to suggest the possibility of recognizing the user's distinctive voice or even collecting DNA samples to recognize a user's genetic sequence. Biometrics could also be context-sensitive and detect the shape of a user's ear before allowing a call to go through, for example.

Overall it still seems somewhat science fiction, but could be implemented in the next model of the iPhone this summer.

Mjoy Removed From AppStore



Mjoy application allowed you to send free SMS messages from your iPhone and iTouch. Apple removed it from App Store, certainly because of complaints from mobile operators.

The application allowed to send SMS via WiFi and 3G, and therefore could be used wherever you were (which is quite inconvenient for the operators). Now it remains accessible to the webapp accessed through Safari www.mjoy.com, but certainly is not the same thing.

WWDC 2009: June 8 - 12



wwdc2009

Apple has announced the date for it’s 2009 World Wide Developer Conference: June 8-12.

Last year, Steve Jobs’ Keynote at WWDC gave us an update on iPhone 2.0, the introduction of MobileMe, and the unveiling of the iPhone 3G. What will they have for us this year? More iPhone 3.0 no doubt. iPhone gen 3? Snow Leopard? Mac Netbook?

As usual, WWDC will be held at the Moscone Center West in San Francisco, and will again consist of iPhone, Mac, and IT streams. Apple says:

iPhone OS is the world’s most advanced mobile operating system, offering you a revolutionary platform for designing innovative mobile applications. Learn every aspect of iPhone development — from the powerful tools and frameworks to enhancing your application with the unique features of iPhone OS.

New rumors about future iPhone



att-logo

Here are some new rumors about future iPhone from AT&T staff:

  • New iPhone announcement around mid-June
  • New iPhone will be faster and have a more seamless experience unmatched by any device (could be just talking about 3.0, but we think it’s also a new iPhone)
  • U-Verse iPhone application; will allow control of your home DVR (play, pause, rewind, etc.)
  • AT&T is said to be working with Apple to create a unified product with an unparalleled experience across all their products and services.
  • Apple’s 3.0 software should tell us where the iPhone platform is going… uh, k?
  • They said customers shouldn’t need to choose from AT&T’s high-end devices because of features, they should choose based on preferences. The gap in capability should be filled with the new iPhone. Ok, bets on slide out QWERTY, autofocus camera, video sharing, blah blah?
  • Seems like the higher speed HSDPA (7.2Mbps) is being hinted at too which should confirm the earlier rumors of the new Infineon chipset.
  • The $99 3G netbook will start selling this summer, and the first one won’t be a Windows OS.
