News tagged ‘iPhone 4’
Earlier this month, iLounge reported that Apple indeed plans to launch the next-generation iPhone with a 4-inch display. The company could increase the height of the screen not changing its width. The report also included the measurements of the rumoured device that allow Ciccarese Design to produce some higher quality mockups of what such a device might look like
As had been proposed in earlier speculation, a taller display could allow Apple to add one more row of icons to the iPhone's home screen, moving to five rows per page plus the row of pinned icons in the dock at the bottom of the screen.

The website of parts supplier SW-Box posted photos of the parts claimed to be from Apple's sixth-generation iPhone. The components are said to be a headphone jack, earpiece and Wi-Fi cable. The purported iPhone parts suggest the device will have a significantly different internal design, as the headphone jack is attached to the earpiece and Wi-Fi components.
That's a major departure from the current design of the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4, in which the headphone jack is included on a component with the handset's volume buttons and mute switch, all of which are located in the upper left corner of the device.
According to our source, which has proven reliable in the past, the reason for such aggressive pricing is to do to the tablet market what Apple did to the MP3 market in 2004 with the expansion of the iPod product line -- leave absolutely no space for competitors.
Portuguese-language website G1 discovered that Apple announced the May 11 launch on its official Brazilian iPad page. Apple's new iPad will launch in a total of 30 new countries this weekend, with the largest among them Brazil. Most launches will occur this Friday, May 11, but a handful more in the Middle East will have a launch this Saturday, May 12.
Apple's assembly partner Foxconn recently began manufacturing devices in Brazil, and has opened plants intended for iPhone and iPad production there. Apple began selling iPhone 4 units built in Brazil in their home country in February, but thus far, production has been limited to the 8-gigabyte handset model, model number "MD198BR/A," and has not extended to version of the latest-model iPhone 4S.
In May of last year, Apple submitted a proposal for its nano-SIM card design that would replace the current micro-SIM. However, as of couple months ago, the company was fighting with rival mobile phone makers which were pushing their own standards for SIM cards. In an effort to convince other companies to support its design, Apple has even said that they will offer royalty-free patent license to its SIM-card design.
According to market research company NPD Group, Android was able to capture 61 percent of the U.S. market, which is a considerable gain from the 49 percent registered in last year’s fourth quarter.
Pod2g has announced via Twitter that he successfully made untethered jailbreak of the iPhone 4 on iOS 5.1. Previously, three parties had demonstrated the jailbreak of iOS 5.1: I0n1c, the iPhone Dev-Team, and Chpwn/Phoenixdev. Only I0n1c claimed untethered jailbreak, but made it clear that he will not be releasing his jailbreak to the public.
Thankfully pod2g has announced that he's also succeeded in untethering the jailbreak.
Parts vendor SW-BOX.com has posted information on a claimed iPhone 5 SIM card tray that it obtained from one of its parts suppliers.
The tray appears essentially identical to the SIM card tray found in the iPhone 4S and 4, and if the part is indeed legitimate it suggests that Apple may retain a similar flat-edged form factor for the forthcoming device. Such a design would be opposed to a tapered or rounded-edge design that would likely require a somewhat curved exterior surface for the tray or at least a thinner tray profile as was seen in earlier iPhone models such as the 3G and 3GS.
News: a productive week-end. Found 2 big vulnerabilities. 1 kernel land and 1 root land.
Too bad I have to be secret again...
Last week pod2g noted that a jailbreak of iOS 5.1 would take at least a month to complete. We'll post more information about how these new vulnerabilities will affect that schedule as soon as we hear more.
If the kernel land vulnerability is exploitable this could provide a jailbreak for the device no matter the firmware.
The GEVEY Ultra 5.1 for the GSM iPhone 4 has been recalled since it used Loktar Sun's free method (aka SAM unlock) to unlock your device which has been disabled by Apple. Apple N Berry is offering a full refund to customers who purchased the device. You can read their official statement
