The future iPhone will run on ARMv7 processor?



There are new job announcements by Apple and in particular Apple seeks for experts in architecture with ARM NEON technology. As you can see in the image, the aim is to improve the iPhone OS subsystem that will lead to a better graphics acceleration, especially in multimedia applications.

The NEON technology is currently implemented only on the new processors ARMv7. The current iPhone uses ARMv6. This leads us to think that the next model of iPhone will have a new processor. But this will probably be next year..

Fuzzyband replaces 3G Baseband Downgrader



hazdowngrade

3G Fuzzyband Downgrader is now available in Сydia. This should be used instead of 3G Baseband Downgrader for downgrading the baseband on phones containing the 5.8 bootloader.

Benefits over original downgrader:

  • Does version checking, will only downgrade if phone is eligible
  • Downgrades all versions of baseband from 2.30.03 to 4.26.08 (3.0 beta5)
  • Reports current bootloader version on screen

The original downgrader was a possibly dangerous app, as it relied on a failed downgrade to decide whether downgrading was possible. Anytime you run BBUpdaterExtreme you are potentially doing damage to the modem, so the version checking in this app minimizes the chances of accidently corrupting the baseband.

What's new in Firmware 3.0 Beta4: 12 changes



Here is a list of changes from iSapzio (sorry, screenshots are in Italian):

1. You can now enter to Settings-Store to see the balance and billing information:

11 12 13

2. Another change concerns volume control in the iPod app (or the "Music" on iPod Touch). While using Firmware 3.0 beta 4 on iPod Touch first generation, we can see that the controls for the volume are gone. This is an intelligent system, that turns on and off volume control, depending on USB, headphones and AD2P connection:

21 22 23

3. Fixed problems with iPhoto and displaying thumbnails of the screenshots / images from the CameraRoll.

New Skype ver 1.0.3



skype_icon

Skype is updated to version 1.0.3. Here is a changelog:

  • Fixed crashing when clicking on certain contacts in the contact list.
  • Fixed crashing when returning to the contact list after having accepted a contact authorization request in specific cases.
  • Improved the handling of international calling prefixes in SkypeOut calling.

You might still see a pop-up (first time launch) saying that the application works only on non-jailbroked devices. I can assure you that it works rather well, without any problems.

Next Generation iPhone Component Suppliers



iphone

This is a list of component suppliers for the next-generation iPhone that is rumored to arrive in mid 2009. The component list isn't particularly revealing except it reinforces the rumor that Apple will be using a 3.2 megapixel camera from OmniVision in the next generation iPhone. The current iPhone uses a 2 megapixel camera. The suppliers will begin shipping in May and the first batch is estimated at around 5 million units.

Apple orders 100 million 8Gb flash chips



flash

Apple has reportedly placed orders for 100 million 8Gb (8 gigabit, not gigabyte) NAND flash chips mostly with Samsung Electronics, which is likely to cause a supply shortage, according to sources at downstream suppliers. That's twice the size of the order reported last year. The tiny memory chips are then recombined during manufacturing into the larger 16GB, 32GB, and so on capacities we expect to find in our handheld consumer electronics. New iPhone this year! Any doubts?

Original Skype for iPhone



skype_logo

GigaOM reports that an iPhone version of Skype may be released as soon as next week, possibly at the CTIA Wireless trade show in Las Vegas.

A few months ago, I asked Skype CEO Josh Silverman when was he going to launch the iPhone version of the P2P voice and IM service that has now been downloaded more than 405 million times. He smiled and said, "Stay tuned." And so we did.

A tipster, a very reliable one, tells me that Skype is almost ready to launch that iPhone version, perhaps as soon as next week. CTIA Wireless, a large mobile industry trade event, kicks off in Las Vegas next Wednesday, so perhaps the announcement will be made there. I am working on getting more details, as well as screenshots of the service.

For now we can use Fring, which is free and works just fine.
