FaceTime was touted as one of Apple’s big iOS features when they released the iPhone 4. There’s no doubt that it’s been hugely popular but we’re doubtful it’s as popular as Apple perhaps hoped it would be. Part of this may well be down to Apple preventing users from making / receiving FaceTime calls unless they were connected to a WiFi network. iOS 6 will change this and allow users to use the FaceTime service over their 3G or even 4G carrier service.
Whilst hovering my finger over my folder filled springboard I suddenly thought, “What was the first iPhone application I installed?” which was quickly followed up with, “What was the first iPhone application I paid for?”
If you needed a reason to upgrade your shiny iDevice to iOS 4.2.x, and you aren’t waiting around for a jailbreak solution, then Apple’s decision to make the previous badged “Find my iPhone” service free for all iOS 4.2.x users should help you make that decision a no brainer.
It’s two days since I updated my iPhone to 4.1. I’m giving serious consideration to downgrading to 4.0.1 again. Apps crash frequently, battery life is, at best, appalling.
iOS4 is available, but not by general release at this time. Here’s how to upgrade to it AND jailbreak your handset afterwards. (PC & Mac)
During a recent Twitter conversation I promised I’d spend some time writing about the applications I have on my iPhone that require a jailbroken handset.
Steve Jobs today revealed the hotly anticipated new iPhone. A wholly remarkable device when you look at what it brings to the mobile marketplace.
It feels like a lifetime ago that Apple launched the iPad. The US market have been able to enjoy the product for a number of weeks, whilst the rest of the world has (in some cases) been patiently waiting for a wider release.
If you place an iPhone next to a banana, it’s signal improves. Where the O2 iPhone users had no 3G service normally, once a banana was added to the equation they suddenly did!
Compared to many, I am still a relatively new Apple consumer – I purchased my iPhone 3G in early 2009. (I don’t feel it’s fair to count the Apple Newton I owned many years earlier!)
