Future iPads: You Want A Camera With That?



ipad

Steve Jobs might announce something yesterday he wasn’t supposed to. At yesterday’s event, Jobs indicated that iOS 4.2 would include all of the features included in versions 4.0 and 4.1 for the iPhone. When the iPad’s iOS is updated this November to version 4.2 it will be the first significant upgrade for the device since it debuted last spring.

Would that include HDR photography? If so, this would mean that at some point the iPad will be getting a camera. Perhaps Jobs was simply lost in the moment and meant nothing with his comment. But let’s be honest: Would anyone be surprised to hear that the iPad is getting a camera?

Software Update to Fix iPhone 3G Performance Issues is on Its Way



iOS4Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO, confirmed that the new software update iOS 4.x will appear in the near future to correct performance problems on the iPhone 3G, which works on iOS 4.x. He confirmed it while answering to the email he got from a user who was disappointed with the iPhone 3G performance running on iOS 4, describing it as "dog slow".

Although he did not mention a specific version or date of its release we can guess that he was specking about iOS 4.1, which is going to be released next month, when iTV (Apple TV) and the next generation iPod touch will spotlight.

Apple testing iOS 4.1, next-gen iPod touch, iPad and 'unknown' product



ipad new

Apple is testing the first material update to its iOS 4.0, next-generation iPod touches, an iPad revision, and an "unknown" product.

The latest beta of iOS 4.1 includes three new "Configuration Descriptors" within its USB configuration files - all of which pertain to devices that list "Apple, Inc." as their "manufacturer" (see screenshot).

The first product, a fourth-generation iPod touch, is referenced as "iPod 4,1." This year's iPod touch calls for models akin to iPhone 4, equipped with dual cameras, FaceTime support, Apple's A4 processor, and Retina Display.

The second product referenced in the USB configuration files is "iProd 2,1." All indications are that this device represents a material update to the iPad.

Finally, is a previously undiscovered mention of a mysterious device listed as "unknownHardware." Although the configuration files tag this device with Apple product ID of 20547, it's textual descriptor is similarly listed as "Unknown- Add device descriptor info for this device." It's possible that those place holders are to be dubbed iTV - capable of running App Store applications and based on iOS 4.0 platform.
