Apple Blocks Access to Cydia in its Stores



Cydia-Apple-Store

Apple seems really dislike everything that helps users to jailbreak their devices. This time Apple blocked access to the Cydia website via Wi-Fi network in Apple retail stores. If you try accessing Cydia on a device connected to one of Apple’s Wi-Fi hotspots, you’ll be surprised to see Apple’s website load instead. As far as we remember, last year federal regulators said that it was no longer illegal to hack or jailbreak an iPhone. However, Apple doesn’t care about that and continues its “war” with jailbroken devices.

Apple to Hold Early April Media Event for iOS 5



media event

According to German website Macerkopf.de, in early April Apple will hold a media event to introduce iOS 5 and revamped MobileMe services, widely expected to become a free syncing service offered by Apple for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch owners. The event would probably take place on Apple's campus in the 14th or 15th week of the year, the first or second week in April. This is line with Apple's pattern. For example, last year's iOS 4 event took place on April 8th at the company's headquarters in Cupertino. It would make a lot of sense if Apple did the same this year with iOS 5 as well.

Another Leaked Case Suggests iPad 2 Will Simply Be Called ‘iPad’, Comes with Rear Camera Hole



new case

A new leather case for the next-generation iPad appeared on German website Macerkopf.de. Design of the leaked case confirms all rumors about tapered edges, thinner design, rear-facing camera and flat back, but also provides some details on the actual name of the “iPad 2”. The terms iPad 2 was used by journalists and bloggers for indication of the second-generation iPad. That case comes with packaging with a simple label “For the new iPad” that might mean that iPad 2 will actually be called simply iPad.

It is also noteworthy to say that current iPhone 4 accessories don’t come with labels like “Made for the iPhone 4″. Instead, Apple went for a simple “Made for iPhone” that doesn’t point to the “iPhone 4” name in any way.

Manuals on Amazon Suggest Late July Launch for Lion



lionamazon

The  Amazon UK website placed several manuals for the upcoming Mac OS X 10.7 Lion  that will be released late in July. That fact might suggest that the operating system will also launch around that time. It seems that the OS will be released right after WWDC, this year expected to be from July 5 to July 9. The cover of one of the Mac OS X Lion manuals makes reference to the already announced Launchpad and Mission Control features but also references the dock, most of which was demonstrated last year at the Lion announcement. Noteworthy to say that the release date of these guidebooks is a good indication of product launches. For example, Amazon information predicted the release date Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac.

The iPhone 5 Will Debut Between June 5th and 9th at WWDC 2011



WWDC

The next-generation iPhone will be probably announced between June 5th and 9th , 2011. On these very dates Apple booked the Moscone Center in San Francisco for this year’s WWDC. Noteworthy to say that on the Moscone Center’s website the June event is listed as the “Corporate meeting”, though, such description is usual one for this Apple’s event. Apple’s next iPhone is traditionally announced at each year’s WWDC event held at the Moscone Center sometime in June. Moreover, there are two other “Corporate Meetings / Events” on the Moscone schedule: one for May 10th through 11th, and the second between June 22nd and 23rd. The May event probably is for the iPad 2 launch and the June is for something more important because it is placed closer to WWDC.
