Apple May Be Looking For A Second iPad Manufacturer



Foxconn-Product-Line

DigiTimes claims that Apple is seeking for the second manufacturer for the updated iPad set for release later this year.

Apple reportedly plans to add a second manufacturer for iPad 3 tablet PCs in addition to Foxconn Electronics with Taiwan-based Quanta Computer and [Pegatron] Technology being indicated as the potential contenders for the possible orders, according to industry sources in Taiwan.

[Pegatron], which reportedly have landed iPhone 5 orders from Apple, stands a better chance of winning the iPad 3 orders, the sources noted.

Pegatron now manufactures the CDMA iPhone 4 and Quanta is responsible for Mac production. Apple’s decision to add a new manufacturer for the iPad was mostly caused by the explosion on Foxconn plant and its circumstances. So the company seems to decide to minimize risk.

iCloud to Auto-Resolve Sync Conflicts



syncconflict

John Gruber at Daring Fireball claims that Apple’s iCloud service will be able to solve conflicts with data automatically by determining the correct option. Now MobileMe forces users to solve conflicts themselves. On The Talk Show with Dan Benjamin he’s shared his opinion on how iCloud will deal with sync conflicts:

In iCloud, I believe you will never be presented with [a sync conflict] dialog, no matter how much has changed in one of the instances while it was "offline". The server-side iCloud, when there seemingly is a conflict, will make a decision and it will decide which one is the best (in Apple's terms the "truth"). That is what Steve Jobs means when he says "The Truth is in the Cloud." iTunes will decide which one is right and that's it. iCloud will push that right one to any device that has this account that has a different version.

greghughes

Last year we told about Greg Hughes, who created the "Wi-Fi Sync" app, which allows to synchronize your iOS-device with iTunes wirelessly. After Apple's rejection the developer sent it to the Cydia Store instead. Since then the app was sold over 50,000 times. But as you know, this week Apple unveiled that it made Wi-Fi Synchronization with iTunes an inbuilt feature in iOS5. In response Hughes decided to accuse the company in ripping his work.

facetime-3g

FaceTime videocalls are for Wi-Fi right now. And as you might remember we were able to use FaceTime over 3G only after installing a jailbreak tweak utility. Now Apple decided to enable 3G support in iOS 5. However it will be up to carriers to allow it or not. Guess what AT&T will do? We shall see.

Apple Files Lawsuit Against Kid Who Sold White iPhone 4 Parts



WhiteiPhone4Now

A few months ago we told you about the teenager, Fei Lam, whose site, WhiteiPhone4Now.com had been forced to shut down. He managed to sell $130,000 worth of the white iPhone 4 parts. And only yesterday Apple decided to file a lawsuit against Lam and his parents. The suit claims that the site led to the infringement and dilution of Apple’s trademarks and that it was involved in deceptive practices through selling the iPhone conversion kits. Curiously, Apple has also filed a voluntary dismissal of the lawsuit, which may mean that a settlement has been reached, although the request for dismissal without prejudice may mean that Apple could come after Lim again at a later date.

samsung

The legal battle between Apple and Samsung — sued for allegedly copying the “look and feel” of the iPhone and iOS with its Galaxy devices — it’s far from over. Apple  is now asking Samsung to hand over prototypes of unreleased phones and tablets for legal scrutiny. With the federal court ruling that Samsung will have to send these units to Apple’s legal team, Samsung is being forced to send the unreleased Droid Charge, Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 to Apple, though the other two devices mentioned, the Infuse 4G and Galaxy S 2, have already been released publicly in the United Kingdom and United States, respectively.
