iOS 7 Myths

I am tired of getting text messages and twitter messages about iOS 7 and the myths popular twitter’s have made about it to get more followers so I am going to post them here and hopefully you will help me spread the word.

  1. Text Screenshot Notifications- No you cannot do this. I have friends running 7 and they cannot see when I take a screenshot of their texts.
  2. iOS 7 does not come out at midnight. It doesn’t even come out tomorrow. Apple has never released any update let alone a major without developers seeing the GM seed first.

Right now those are the top myths. Help spread the word by retweeting on twitter and please realize that twitter pages tell you this stuff for publicity. Thanks

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.

As the new iPhone event comes near the rumor mill has exploded! I am posting at 1:30 in the morning of rumors and researching. Today we have something quite interesting. New images show how the new iPhone purposed design compares to the past iPhones. These photos show how taller and slimmer the new iPhone is compared to it’s past brethren’s.

iOS 6 bugs I have found in Beta 1(UPDATED)

Yes I know iOS 6 is in beta and I know it is only the first beta but I thought I would share some bugs with you that I have found so if you are running the beta you will know that I have found them as well. So let’s get started

iPhone 4

  • Safari lags when trying to change orientation to full screen landscape or will quit entirely.
  • iCloud backup will ask you for a password. Even with the right password it will keep asking
  • Purchased for Apps and Music don’t work in iOS 6
  • Apps will not install over 3G. Apps will get to “Installing” and then an error message will appear.
  • Constant Freezing.
  • (Update)When selecting messages or FaceTime in settings entire phone freezes (Thanks Jonathan!)
  • (Update)Keyboard clicks don’t always happen

The New iPad

  • Siri will post to facebook but has an error posting to twitter.
  • Turn by Turn directions doesn’t say directions when locked (Might be smart cover problem)
  • NEEDS MORE 3D buildings.
  • Purchased apps and music section doesn’t work
  • When selecting certain music to sync in iTunes the entire library will delete… Pain for quick sync and go
  • (Update) Keyboard clicks don’t always happen.

Apple TV (2nd Gen)

  • Audio will not play through airplay
  • When using airplay the entire screen will be black
  • Will disappear from Airplay List

Apple to release iOS 6 Beta Build 10A5316K Tomorrow

A post from the staff of Chinese forum weiPhone.com claims to share a host of official download links to Apple’s new iOS 6 software that is going to be announced tomorrow.

Accuracy of this is not really known. Whenever you click a link you will get to the developer “Your Session has expired” like this.

When iOS 5 was close to being announced there was a similar list of links which I don’t have.

If the links are accurate then the 1st generation iPad and 3rd Generation iPod touch are dropped, however the iPhone 3Gs is still supported which to me makes no sense whatsoever as the iPhone 3Gs has worse specs than both of those devices. Here is the fill list of links:

Third-generation iPad
– Consumer: Wi-FiWi-Fi + Cellular (GSM)WiFi + Cellular (CDMA)
– Enterprise: Wi-FiWiFi + Cellular (GSM)WiFi + Cellular (CDMA)

iPad 2
– Consumer: Wi-FiWiFi + 3G (GSM)WiFi + 3G (CDMA)Revised Wi-Fi
– Enterprise: Wi-FiWiFi + 3G (GSM)WiFi + 3G (CDMA)Revised Wi-Fi

iPhone
– Consumer: 4S4 (GSM)4 (CDMA)3GS
– Enterprise: 4S4 (GSM)4 (CDMA)3GS

iPod touch
– Consumer: 4th Generation
– Enterprise: 4th Generation

Apple TV
– Consumer: 2nd Generation3rd Generation

Other iOS
– iOS 6 Beta Guide (PDF)
– Installing Apple TV Software (PDF)

Safari 6
– Consumer: – Safari 6 Developer Preview for LionUninstaller

There is no way to tell if these links are accurate until tomorrow morning. I expect there would also be a new build of OSX Mountain Lion or even the full public release date to be t0morrow. We will see. I will have some new posts coming for iOS and more of the event expectations later.

What to do with that new iPhone/iPod you just got

So you got a new iPhone or iPod for the holidays! Great! By now you should have had time to play around with it and you want to know what you should do next! Well here is what you should do in terms of apps,music,photos and more. So let’s get started.

Apps

Here are some of the Apps you should get for your iPhone or iPod Touch.

1. Facebook –

The king of the social networks. As horrible as this app is to some people I don’t find it that bad. Sometimes it will annoy me though. It is better than using the mobile site as you can’t upload all your holiday photos using the web page. [iTunes Link]

2. Twitter –

Twitter is built into iOS 5. You can tweet out website links and photos from inside our native safari or photos app on the device. To do all of this though you need to get the official twitter app. It is a little hurtful on the eyes but the app itself is good and hey it’s free! [iTunes Link]

3. Tiny Wings –

This is one of my favorite iOS games of all times. Tiny wings. You are a bird who has always dreamed of flying. Unfortunately you have tiny wings. Good thing is the world is full of hills. You try and make it through islands by getting air of the hills. It is extremely addicting and I love it and I hope you will to. [$1 – iTunes Link]

Music

One of the great thing about having an iPhone and an iPod is you have music wherever you go. If you don’t have any though then well you are going to be missing out. One of the things every iPhone and iPod can do is download music,tv,and movies straight from the iTunes store along with previous purchases of TV and music. All you need to do is launch the iTunes store, go into the purchases, music, then hit the download all. This will take a while and unless you have iTunes match your mp3’s will NOT download. So to save time you might just want to plug your iPhone/iPod into iTunes and then have all your music.

Photos

The iPhone and the iPod are great way’s to show off your photos. All you need to do is hit the Photo tab when you connect your iDevice to iTunes and check the “Sync Photo’s” checkbox and you are done! Congrats!

iCloud

iCloud iOS 5’s biggest possibly best feature. It is amazing. It alows you to keep Photo’s, Calanders, Contacts, and more synced accross all your devices. Mac or PC. All you need to do is have an Apple ID. Once you do then you can navigate to Settings>iCloud. If you are not signed in go ahead and then select the services you want! Photo Stream stores 30 days or 1,000 new photos. You can clear ALL of them from iCloud.com and soon individually with iOS 5.1.

Play Around!

There are many great amazing things that the iPhone and the iPod touch have to offer and this is just a quick little guide to get you started. I will be posting some fun tips and tricks for all you new iPhone users and some good ones for older iPhone users. If you have a tip or a trick feel free to comment or send me a message on twitter (@matthewjagiela). Enjoy your night and I hope all of you had a wonderful day.
