Jailbreak-iPhone4S

The 'dream team' of iPhone hackers has made more progress on the A5 jailbreak with planetbeing just announcing that they're out of Apple's sandbox.

pod2g also mentioned progress in twitter:

@planetbeing escaped from the sandbox with the help of @saurik. Thanks to their awesome work, there should be nothing left blocking for the A5 jailbreak. Now it should be a matter of days. Still no precise ETA of course.

Apple Researching Motion-Sensing Virtual 3D User Interface for iOS Devices



apple_3d_interface_iphone

Patently Apple has discovered a newly-published patent application from Apple. The application describes the use of motion sensors to create a virtual three-dimensional interface for iOS devices. Such interface could be a co-called virtual room that could be navigated by changing the orientation of the device. Noteworthy, similar concepts are found in some augmented reality apps.

The invention covers a 3D display environment for mobile device that uses orientation data from one or more onboard sensors to automatically determine and display a perspective projection of the 3D display environment based on the orientation data without the user physically interacting with (e.g., touching) the display.

Morgan Stanley: Apple's next iPhone to be slimmer, may include quad-mode LTE chip



iphone5

Investment bank Morgan Stanley believes that Apple's next-generation iPhone will be slimmer and could include a quad-mode chip from Qualcomm that would allow for 3G and LTE functionality across all networks.

Morgan Stanley's analyst Katy Huberty suggests that the device will be ready at the end of the second quarter, but the launch will depend on «manufacturing yields,» and the next-generation iPhone is likely to arrive in the third quarter.

Huberty said «it appears that the next-generation iPhone will incorporate Qualcomm's quad-mode chip that would allow it to «run on all 3G and LTE network flavors,» but she said it was «too early to know for sure.»

Sony Is Making Available Its Music Unlimited Service On iOS Devices



sony-music-unlimited-logo

iTunes had for a long time been the only marketplace for iOS-device owners as third-party storefronts was prohibited by Apple’s rules. Giving way to government regulators, Apple last year changed its policy related to third-party stores and allowed subscriptions. This opened the way for music apps from Shazam and Spotify that have recently appeared on the iOS platfrorm. Currently another major music service is going to compete with iTunes.

Strong sales of iPhone 4S a precursor to 'monster' launch of redesigned 'iPhone 5'



piper

The well-known Piper Jaffray analyst, Gene Munster, sent a note to investors on Wednesday where he increased his expectations related to the iPhone sales over the holiday quarter up to 30 million units. But the record sales aren’t the thing that really deserves attention.   Instead, Munster 's looking toward the future, with a next-generation redesigned iPhone, which he believes is going to accelerate Apple's growth even further than the current iPhone 4S.

"If Apple sells 30 (million)-plus iPhones in Dec., with no new form factor, up from 17.1m in Sept., it would be evidence supporting our survey work indicating that 94% of iPhone users plan to upgrade to a new iPhone," Munster wrote. "This theme suggests iPhone 5, which we are expecting in Aug. with a new form factor, will be a monster upgrade."

Greg Joswiak and other 250 employees from Apple were noticed at CES



greg_joswiak

Though Apple doesn’t officially participate at CES, the company continues to keep an eye on new products by its competitors, but is likely also interested in what companies are coming up with in terms of accessories for Apple's own products, and CES is a prime event for announcements for products of all types, including those within the Mac- and iOS-related markets. paidContent has in fact proven Apple's interest in CES when met accidently into iOS device marketing chief Greg Joswiak on the floor at the expo.

While wandering around the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center Tuesday, I bumped into Greg Joswiak, head of iOS product marketing for Apple, just outside of Sony’s booth. Joz, as he’s known within the Apple community, grinned sheepishly upon being recognized by a reporter and stopped to chat for a few minutes.
