Whenever someone goes on a trip, they look for portability in something that they need to take along. I’m sure most of you, me alike, hate lugging around too many things when you’d rather travel light and easy. With the iAngle, you can have two things, in one product further
An updated USBConfiguration.plist file discovered in the most recent version of the iPhone OS 3.1 firmware beta offers evidence that Apple is continuing development on an unknown device. According to an ArsTechnica story, the product, referred to as "iProd", was first discovered in March and has since been updated as "1,1", which has led users to believe there is indeed an unknown product inside of Apple under active development running the iPhone OS.
Well, the 2.0.1 firmware update has been released, and users are reporting problems. Not too surprisingly, first-gen iPhones that have been jailbroken and/or unlocked are un-jailbroken by the update, so you'll lose access to all of your unofficial, third party apps. The Dev Team is already hard at work on an updated Pwnage tool for 2.0.1. However, the update is a little more serious for iPhone 3G owners.
Apple has released iPhone software update version 2.0.1 and is now available for immediate download. The update adds no new features, although it does contain numerous "Bug fixes". iPhones which have been unlocked could potentially run into trouble, although we haven't received any reports yet. We recommend not updating unlocked phones until the Dev Team (or someone courageous) gives the OK. You can download the update via iTunes by connecting your iPhone and clicking on the "Check For Updates" button from the General tab. If you have any issues or see any changes with this update, let us know!
No more than a week after the first beta of firmware version 2.1 being seeded to developers, Apple has seeded a second beta version. The new version reportedly fixes several bugs in the previous version. It also makes mention of the highly anticipated push notification service.
The 2.1 firmware has already been seeded to developers, and rumors have been going around about new features hinted at in the software, like turn-by-turn GPS among other things. Now a new clue has been found that may show Apple is gearing up to release a revision of their iPod touch line.
Even before the iPhone 2.0 software was released to the masses, rumors were circulating that 2.0.1 was already in the works. It looks like they have a little more in store than just a routine update, as they have seeded a beta version of iPhone 2.1 Firmware (Beta 1, Build 5F90) to developers.
Although the iPhone 2.0 update was just released Friday, Apple and AT&T are rumored to already be testing the next version of the OS. According to the Boy Genius Report, they've received several visits to their site using a yet-unreleased version of the iPhone software. Two instances, iPhone version 2.0.1, build 5B101 (iPhone) and 5B103 (iPhone 3G), have been observed. No further information can be gained from these log entries, although we're hoping that this build will bring some much needed stability to iPhone 2.0.
Apple has fallen behind on keeping the iPhone's software up-to-date with security patches, according to The Register. While they have been keeping up with patches for the Mac to make sure no major security holes were left open, they have not been updating the iPhone's software at the same pace. While the Mac was patched in April for the WebKit vulnerability exploited by Charlie Miller at the CanSec West security conference in March, the iPhone has yet to be patched since February, leaving it open to it and other exploits.
Late Thursday, Apple released beta 8 (build 9m2199) of its iPhone/iPod touch software developer kit while beta certificates issued before June 9th also expired. The beta, a 1.25 gigabyte download, includes iPhone firmware version 5a345 and according to sources, improves stability as well as mentions a developer-only version of iTunes 7.7, which developers can use to "install iPhone OS Beta 8 on your Apple devices."
