What Will Apple’s Next Generation iPhone 2,1 be Called?


New iPhone is widely expected to be announced at WWDC 2009. But what name will Apple give to this new device?

  • iPhone 4G would assume 4G LTE wireless networks, which haven’t even begun to be rolled out yet, so last year’s scheme is out.
  • iPhone 3.5/3.9G is likewise a non-starter. HSPA+ is not for Apple.
  • iPhone 32GB is spoken all over internet. This name is more about memory, than a phone. It forces Apple to do actually 32GB models, etc. This too seems unlikely.
  • iPhone Pro fits with Mac Pro and MacBook Pro (and even Final Cut Pro). This name is cool, but kind of already used and abused by Palm Treo Pro, HTC Touch Pro, and a variety of other stylus-wielding Windows Phones.
  • iPhone, sans descriptor is always a possibility. After all, it’s not iMac X, Y, or Z, it’s just iMac. Whether internal documents say iPhone 2,1 or iPhone 3rd Generation, Apple could be ballsy enough at this point to just stick with the unadorned moniker.
  • iPhone HD - high resolution screen, full HD support, 10Mp camera.. all this is just our dreams. Why not?

Any thoughts on names? Just leave comments.

Apple patents a biometric recognition system for iPhone and MacBook

Apple filed a new patent that shows a new system of biometric recognition for the safety of iPhone and MacBook. Currently the only way to protect our devices is to use a security code, which is not safe enough. In the future Apple plans to integrate a sensor below the screen to scan our fingerprints when we execute the "slide to unlock" .

Other security methods may be that the voice recognition or facial recognition. This might include the future implementation of a front camera. Apple goes so far as to suggest the possibility of recognizing the user's distinctive voice or even collecting DNA samples to recognize a user's genetic sequence. Biometrics could also be context-sensitive and detect the shape of a user's ear before allowing a call to go through, for example.

Overall it still seems somewhat science fiction, but could be implemented in the next model of the iPhone this summer.

QuickPwn & PwnageTool for 2.2 firmware

The new tools are out, thanks to DevTeam. Here are couple notes:

If you have a 3G iPhone and want potential soft unlock in the near future do NOT use QuickPwn, and do not use the official ipsw or the iTunes update process without using PwnageTool.

Preserving the baseband will give you the maximum chance for any upcoming software unlock. To upgrade your phone to 2.2 and preserve the state of the baseband you need to create a custom .ipsw with PwnageTool. This custom .ipsw will not contain the baseband update but of course will still allow all the cool new stuff from 2.2.

The ‘late 2008’ MacBook/air/pro line of computers have an issue with DFU mode.  While it’s possible to go from Pwned 2.1 -> Pwned 2.2 (using PwnageTool), you can’t yet go from stock to pwned.  If in any doubt use a different machine.

Here are download links:

MacBook prices will be lower

Investment bank Piper Jaffray said Tuesday it believes Apple is readying new iPod and notebook products that will apply downward pressure to profit margins because they'll be priced more affordably, such as 13-inch MacBook that will fetch less than $1000.

"We believe there is an 80% chance Apple will introduce redesigned MacBooks and possibly new MacBook Pros at lower price points," he wrote. "Specifically, Apple may re-enter the $999 price point (currently $1099) with the MacBook, or test the $1,799 price point with the MacBook Pro (currently $1999)."

The Piper Jaffray analyst reiterated his Buy rating and $250 price target on shares of Apple.

MacBook Touch

Pictures look very nice. Indeed a Mac tablet PC, combining notebook and IPhone, multi-touch and other technologies. Too good to be truth.  But.. There are many rumors, that it will be released by the end of this year.
