Last week iCloudil.com found that one of the files of iOS 5 beta 5 had been remotely updated by Apple. After the release of iOS 5 beta 5 the update file was created on “2011-08-17”, but now it shows the date of “2011-08-18” which means Apple has postponed the update date by a day.
Though it can be considered as an iTunes’ check for update date, there are many chances this is a date for a new iOS 5 update, since the iOS 5 updates come fortnightly.

Based on more than forty interviews with Jobs conducted over two years as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues this book chronicles the rollercoaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.
As the publisher claims, Jobs has cooperated with the book and has not asked for any control over the final product. The book will probably yield the most open look at Jobs' personal and professional life.
Over the weekend, there had been a lot of interest in a 3G-capable MacBook Pro that has an external antenna. The notebook appeared on eBay and its price reached $ 70,000. The seller describes the antenna as "quite tiny" and attributes some of the initial reactions to the bad angle. Most notably, it's actually attached to the MacBook Pro with magnets, and can come off.
According to many rumors regarding Apple’s next-generation tablet, the iPad release was planned for later this year, and its first shipment had to be limited. However, as DigiTimes
Digitimes suggests that Apple has increased the orders for their iPhone line by about 12-13% from 50 million units to 56 million units. The iPhone 5 in particular will reportedly account for 25.5-26 million units in the second half of 2011. In the 3rd garter the iPhone 5 orders have been decreased from 7 million units to 5.5-6 million units, but in the 4th quarter they have been raised from 14 million units to more then 20 million units. But Apple declines the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 orders from over 20 million in the 3rd quarter to 8 million in the 4th quarter. These numbers, however, are not surprisingly, because, if you look at the history sales graph, these times of the year do represent major jumps in sales for Apple.
We have already heard many rumors about upgrade of Apple’s smartphone line this fall, as well as information about the release of next-generation tablet. Also rumors about launch of iPod touch with 3G modem have been circulating. But we forgot that upgrade of all iPod line is planned on September.
The City of Cupertino posted some pictures and more information on Apple's "spaceship" campus that was first revealed in June and is expected to be completed in 2015. The project includes the following:
- An Office, Research and Development Building comprising approximately 2.8 million square feet;
- A 1,000 seat Corporate Auditorium;
- A Corporate Fitness Center;
- Research Facilities comprising approximately 300,000 square feet;
- A Central Plant; and
- Associated Parking.
As Steve Jobs described it back in June:
AppleNApps claims that Apple plans to release a new low-cost iPhone in the coming months. Such low-cost model of iPhone will contain significantly reduced onboard storage and instead rely primarily on streaming content from the company's new iCloud service. That is why some experts call that device as the "iCloud iPhone". But such service would put significant strain on wireless carriers charged with moving data down from the cloud every time it is needed.
We have three independent sources contributing to this report who are all connected to Apple in different capacities. The main takeaway is that Apple intends to launch two iPhone models in the fall with a full upgraded iPhone 5 as expected, as well as a cheaper iPhone which will be the iCloud iPhone.
The iPhone 5 will reportedly appear in a thinner form factor carrying the A5 chip. The iCloud iPhone will have almost the same components currently used in the iPhone 4.
One of our contacts is familiar with the design of the iPhone 4, and says that Apple is cutting the cost of making an iPhone 4 without sacrificing any of its qualities. The main cost cutting will come from Apple reducing on board storage, using a smoother yet cheaper aluminum back and siding, and already having a majority of the supplies on hand. The result will be a cloud based iPhone experience that is unique in the market that will be accessible to a large percentage of users because of the price point.

German Munster-Osnabruck airport’s employees suspected six devices of being either fake or real iPhone 5s and confiscated them on July 21st. The men that possessed these devices were from Turkey.

MacRumors commissioned CiccareseDesign to create high quality renderings made as closely as possible to the original leaked case designs and then 3D models that show how the rumored iPhone 5 may look.
