When Steve Jobs launched the iPod in October 2001 and claimed that it was a breakthrough device for digital music, most trade pundits wrote him and the iPod off owing to its price ($399 then). But within in a few years, the iPod really took off and was termed as one of the biggest innovations in technology. Like many critics said — only Steve Jobs could prove the Beatles wrong. Apple also classified them into categories like Shuffle, Classic, Nano and Touch. [click to continue…]

TypeStatus, a free app on Cydia is a simple tweak that notifies you in the iOS status bar with a simple icon of message bubble with dots when someone is typing an iMessage to you. No matter what you are doing on the phone the alert on the status bar still appears, this incredible tweak is simple yet very useful. The only downside of the app is that it doesn’t tell you who is sending you an iMessage but hey, it does let you know that an iMessage is about to be delivered!

When Apple released the first iPhone in 2007, it featured a 3.5 inch display. Undoubtedly, even that screen size would have felt a tad bigger for many people. But now, it seems that to catch up with the competition, it’s time for Apple to move on and extend the display even further. While we have a dispute over the 4.0 inch display of iPhone, iPod touch panels have been reportedly leaked by the supplier.

If you look at these iPod touch panels, you would realize that Apple has also decided to expand the size of iPod touch screen. These touch panels measure 4.1 inch diagonally. Hence, there’s a probability that Apple would also move from the historical 3.5 inch size of the Retina display to 4.1 inch in upcoming iPhone. In addition to it, several other parts for the next iPhone have been leaked by the supplier such as button flex cable, rear and front facing cameras. [click to continue…]

Inspired from iPhone, Apple gave us the best iPod ever. You love listening to your favourite tracks and scrolling through the beautiful album art in coverflow.

This is not all, it has broken records of highest number of exploits ever found in the history of iOS hacking. All these exploits are not related to hardware in any case, that is, they are not bootrom exploits. Apple can patch them all in upcoming software releases.  [click to continue…]

It seems that everyone is waiting for the day when iOS 5 would become public and as per the rumors from BGR, the day is not too far. Finally, iOS 5 will come out of beta for download all over the world.
