A Colorado woman reached out to Mashable alleging that her iPhone 4 caught fire while charging overnight. She wanted the tech website to spread public awareness over the reported issue, claiming that Apple has been reticent to acknowledge the alleged incident.
The unnamed source claims that she awoke in the early morning during a recent trip to the east coast to find her year-old white iPhone 4 making "sizzling" and "popping" noises. After an unspecified amount of time there was “not quite an explosion, but an immense crackling,” and smoke plumed from the device creating "an awful, putrid smell, almost like you were ingesting plastic of some kind.”

Citing South Korea's Maeil Business Newspaper, Reuters issued yesterday the unverified report claiming that Apple has begun placing orders for a 4.6-inch Retina Display chosen for the next-generation iPhone. The anonymous source also claims that the new iPhone is likely to be revealed in the second quarter of this year.
The rumor suggested that domestic Korean suppliers have received the orders, making Samsung and LG likely candidates as suppliers. Both companies have supplied displays for Apple's mobile products in the past.
When the original iPad was released, there weren’t many apps available for the device. So Apple allowed apps developed for the iPhone’s smaller display to run on the iPad by using emulation. The apps could use only a fraction of the iPad’s display. Alternatively, iPhone-specific apps could be run in a 2x mode, utilizing pixel doubling technique to fill the iPad’s display. However, in 2x mode text and artwork look pixilated and blocky.

Later on Tuesday, a group of photos supposedly taken by the new iPad were posted to the website's forums. It's clear from the images that the new iPad camera is not as good as the 8-megapixel camera on the iPhone 4S, but, when compared to the iPad 2, which had a less-than-1-megapixel resolution, it's a definite step up.

- Added Apple TV 2 support for iOS 4.4.3/4.4.4.
- Fixed rare issues with iOS 5.0.1 where it would halt on the Apple upon boot.

A hacker and iPhone jailbreaker known as "Chronic" suggests that Apple will increase the RAM in its upcoming iPad model. Leaked debug photos purportedly from Apple's third-generation iPad show that the device will sport 1GB of RAM, double the amount of its predecessor iPad 2 that carries 512MB of RAM, the same amount as the iPhone 4.
Leaked debug photos allegedly of Apple's next iPad that surfaced last month showed a line of code that read "vm_page_bootstrap: 244276 free pages and 8396 wired pages." By multiplying the number of free pages by the size of a page (4,096 bytes), the developer deduced that the device would have 1GB of RAM.
