FlashBack Friday Part 2: Apple’s Past iPhone Event Invitations

With the iPhone Event invitations out for Wednesday I thought it would be cool to look at the past iPhone and iOS invitations.

WWDC 2007: The Original iPhone

The Original iPhone will always reign to me as the best iPhone. Not as far as specs go but with design. I feel the best design for the iPhone was the aluminum brushed with plastic we all saw at WWDC in 2007.I got one last year of eBay and yes I do still use it. As far as updates go the iPhone was killed at 3.1.3 but has not been forgotten.

WWDC 2008: iPhone 3G and the App Store

If you were like me the original iPhone was to expensive when it first launched at 500 dollars for the low model. Therfor you were waiting for the next generation to come quickly and hopefully with a lower price tag. When Steve Jobs told us all about the iPhone 3G and the App Store I went crazy! The iPhone 3G was my first iPhone and I still have one with me. The iPhone 3G was killed at iOS 4.2.

iPhone OS 3.0 Event

The iPhone OS 3.0 event brought the world iPhone OS 3.0. To me the event was not as impressive as I would have liked but was still okay. Right around then I started to get interested in Apple.

WWDC 2009: The iPhone 3Gs

At WWDC 2009 the world was given the iPhone 3Gs that is still around with us for probably only a few weeks now. The 3Gs brought a faster processor and video recording to the iPhone.

WWDC 2010: iPhone 4 iOS 4

WWDC brought us the iPhone 4 which was famously bought by Gizmodo and leaked on the internet before the initial launch. The form is still being used in iPhone’s today and will be brought probably to the next iPhone as well with some added features. iOS 4 brought folders and multitasking to the world of iOS.

Lets Talk iPhone: iPhone 4s

The famous let’s talk iPhone event was the last iPhone event before Steve Job’s passed away. The event was supposed to be home to the iPhone 5 but we got the 4s instead with Siri.

September 12: iOS 6 and iPhone 5

Apple’s September event still remains somewhat of a mystery. However we can be sure that the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 will be launched. to follow the iPhone 5 rumors click here. Remember we will have live coverage on twitter (@matthewjagiela) and here on the site as well.

Apple seeds iOS 4.3.5/4.2.10

Well that’s fast. Just a few weeks after Apple released iOS 4.3.4/4.2.9 patching the jailbreak.me exploit and the tethered jailbreak exploit Apple has released iOS 4.3.5 for the iPhone on AT&T and 4.2.10 for the Verizon iPhone 4. Apparently the update fixes more security updates with the update stating “fixes security vulnerability with certificate validation.” To get the update plug in your iPhone to your computer and in iTunes then hit the but that says check for update then download and install.

4.3.4/4.2.9 kills untethered jailbreak

20110717-011850.jpg

It seems that jailbreak.me wasn’t the only jailbreak tool killed in 4.3.4/4.2.9 but the untethered jailbreak used from 4.1 was also closed. The 4.3.4 update was pushed really quickly to fix the security hole allowing a jailbreak on the device through a PDF vulnerability. Apple usually posts updates like that very quickly to make sure that their users aren’t at risk. This is a question of if this was patched to security concern or if this is another attempt to make jail breaking even harder so less people do it. Thanks To The Jailbreak Community for devoting time so we can have an easy jailbreak solution.
