They've done it again. The iPhone Dev-Team has announced a brand new version of PwnageTool for jailbreaking iPhone OS 3.0. The team is hard at work as usual, developing jailbreak and unlock software for all of Apple's latest mobile hardware and software.
The new PwnageTool will not work on the iPhone 3G S (or the new iPod Touch) as of this writing, however more software is on the way. So far, iPhone Dev-Team has only released the Mac OS X version of PwnageTool, although they promise that a Mac OS X and Windows version of QuickPwn is coming soon.
Apple engineers just keep coming up with cool ideas. It's too bad they are light years ahead of mobile carriers. Another patent has been discovered that would allow iPhone users to share media during an ongoing phone call.
Imagine talking to a friend and playing a pop hit for this person without leaving the phone call. Not only will you both hear the music, you can discuss how bad it is in real time.
Believe it or not, the answer is equal parts simple and agonizing. AT&T has stated they will support MMS on the iPhone 3G S at some point during the summer of 2009, after the June 19th release date.
According to reports, the company must first manually replace the "opt out MMS code" on every iPhone user account to allow MMS. New activations are subject to the same procedure, as accounts will initially include the "opt out MMS code" to lock out multimedia message service.
But wait, there's more! There are still some details about the iPhone 3G S that were not announced at the WWDC keynote speech. In fact, we're betting that even more information will be revealed when the new model actually hits the streets on June 19th.
Apple did not mention the specifications of new hardware in the iPhone 3G S on Monday. Turns out a T-Mobile site in the Netherlands has verified that the RAM has been doubled to 256 MB.
No more waiting in line. The iPhone 3GS is now available for pre-order online ahead of the June 19th release date. Apple and AT&T have indicated pre-orders will be delivered on June 19th (yes, delivered, not shipped).
For new subscribers to AT&T and qualifying customers, the 16GB model is priced at $199 and the 32GB iPhone 3GS is $299. Purchase requires a two-year service contract and an iPhone data plan. Owners of earlier model iPhones and other AT&T customers can check their upgrade status before purchasing the iPhone 3GS.
ZAGG is offering the invisibleSHIELD to fully protect the exterior of your new iPhone 3G S immediately. When the invisibleSHIELD was launched in 2007 we featured an in-depth review of the invisibleSHIELD for the iPhone and found it to be the best product of its kind.
As a long term user of the product myself, I can say the invisibleSHIELD continues to deliver on all of its promises. I've been using a front coverage invisibleSHIELD on the touchscreen of my iPhone 3G.
During the keynote address at WWDC 2009 Phil Schiller, the senior vice president of Apple's worldwide product marketing, revealed the new iPhone 3GS. The new iPhone model has the same design as the iPhone 3G, however the S stands for speed.
The new model will be faster and have a higher storage capacity. Apple also announced that an 8GB version of the iPhone 3G will sell for $99.
As expected, Apple's third incarnation of their revolutionary iPhone was announced today at the 2009 WWDC. Though the iPhone announcement followed big, exciting news about new Macbook models and a whirling overview of Snow Leopard, like you, it was the iPhone 3GS grit we were waiting for. After a short session of back-patting about the success of the iPhone AppStore and in-depth overview of the new iPhone OS 3.0, Apple dished out the goods on the new iPhone model.
Phil Schiller announced the new iPhone 3GS as a "really fast iPhone", and then offered up supporting benchmarks that show the new iPhone 3GS as roughly 2x faster than the iPhone 3G model, across most applications.
Schiller also confirmed the presence of 7.2Mbps HSDPA support and gave an in-depth overview of the new 3 megapixel camera in the iPhone 3GS. The new camera offers exciting features such as macro photo taking as close as 10cm from your subject, tap-to-focus
During the keynote address at WWDC 2009 the head of Apple's iPhone software development, Scott Forstall, revealed major new features coming to iPhone OS 3.0.
The new iPhone OS will be released worldwide on June 17th. The cost to upgrade firmware will be $9.95 for iPod Touch and free for iPhone.
During today's keynote address at WWDC 2009, Scott Forstall - head of Apple iPhone software development - gave the audience a detailed overview of many of the new features in OS 3.0, including copy & paste, shake-to-undo, spotlight searching, and more. Two of the "more" were the highly anticipated support for MMS (multimedia messaging) and tethering (the ability to share your iPhone wireless connection with your PC).
