  • iOS 6 ready to rumble for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch

    That’s right folks, Apple’s latest mobile operating system, iOS 6 is ready and willing to inject itself into your iDevice. There are two ways of doing this. Either plug your iDevice in and click “update” in iTunes, or update iOS 6 over-the-air by going to settings, general, software update on the iDevice. The question is, will your iDevice support iOS 6? Let’s have a look. iPod Touch Only the fourth-generation iPod Touch supports iOS 6. Panorama, the “new” landscape picture mode for iOS 6 and the ever-irritating Siri will only run on the fifth-generation iPods. iPad The first iPad won’t support iOS 6...

  • New iOS 6 resolution maxes out at 640×1136: best proof of 4-inch iPhone 5

    We’ve been reporting on a taller (but not wider) next-gen iPhone for months now. Reports now say that Apple’s upcoming iOS 6 will actually scale to 640×1136 to meet the requirements of the taller next-gen iPhone. This site, which is fairly well-known for breaking Apple stories, ran an iOS 6 emulator, tested the new scaling properties of iOS 6 and came up with some awesome proof-of-concept screenshots. So according to the sites tests,...

  • iOS 6 Beta 4 axes YouTube app

    Since the first iPhone, there’s been a dedicated YouTube app. Now with Apple moving its projects in-house, Google’s fiddly app gets the cut from iOS 6 Beta 4. First it was Google Maps being axed by Apple’s native 3D mapping system, now it’s YouTube. At least Google has something to say about this coup. As an aside, it’ll still be possible to upload videos to YouTube from iOS 6. Our license to include...

  • iOS in-app purchase hack smacked down by Apple

    The in-app purchase hack which let users snag paid-for content for free is officially dead in the water thanks to new protection surrounding iOS 6. “The game is over for now,” says Russian hacker Alexey Borodin who instrumented this pretty ingenious hack. “Currently, there is no way to bypass updated API’s,” and for those of us not in the know, an application-programming interface (API) is a set of programming instructions which...

  • iOS 6 for iPhone 3GS adds VIP mail, shared photo streams to the mix

    With each new iOS update, an older iDevice gets left in the dust. iOS 6 is no exception to this hard and fast rule. There are many new and tasty features for iOS 6 that’ll never make it to the iPhone 3GS, but at the least shared photo streams and VIP mail have made it onto the list. Thank the gods of Silicon Valley for small mercies. iOS 6 Beta 3 dropped yesterday...

  • Jailbreak iOS 6 Beta now!

    Hilarity. One eager jailbreak wizard has cracked the code, and it happened just a day after the event. We’ve posted jailbreak instructions for those keen to rip apart iOS 6 Beta, but only for users with A4 iDevices like the iPad 1, iPhone 4 and older iPod Touches. A matter of time This is what we love about the jailbreaking community. It seems as if it only takes a minute (girl) for hackers to dig into Apple’s security vulnerabilities and unlock the potential within and that’s hot. This is a tethered jailbreak, so every time the phone resets, it’s gonna have...

  • iOS 6 artificial knob gleam screams ‘perfection’

    We’ve already detailed the ins and outs of iOS 6 but Apple’s latest mobile OS digs deeper into artificial realism then even we could have realised. The metallic slider on the iOS 6 iPod app changes tone as the phone is viewed through different angles. Madness. It actually appears to reflect. Seventies style knobs for the win. That’s pretty much the craziest, tiniest detail Apple has ever added to its software. It’s...

    Last night, Apple’s WWDC kicked off with three major announcements. Firstly, Apple’s MacBook line has been significantly upgraded.
