The New Zealand Herald’s iPad app is now one of only eight to be awarded Official Honouree status in the News – Handheld Device category, at the “equivalent of the digital Oscars”, the 15th Annual International Webby Awards.…Read More
Apparently Apple is paying very close attention to all iPad 2 returns during these first few crucial weeks of launch.
While there have been a few reports of light-bleeding backlights, here’s one particular story that caught our eye.…Read More
Whoa, Nelly. Ready for another round? The elusive white iPhone — spotted only in the hands of Woz and occasionally in those of our own Richard Lai — may ship after all. After hearing from Apple that it was being delayed twice in 2010, we’ve heard an extended radio silence ever since. Sure, we’ve seen hints here and there from third parties that this here unicorn was still making its way through the production line, but there’s nothing quite like a direct tweet from Cupertino’s senior vice president of worldwide product marketing to really rekindle some interest. In response to a question on how to obtain a white iPhone, Philip Schiller fired back: “The white iPhone will be available this spring (and it is a beauty!).” That’s about as clear-cut as it gets for now, but we’ve still got a few inquiries we’d love answered. Is he talking about the iPhone 4, or the next one in the pipeline? And does he have any intention of building us up, only to let us down (let us down) once more? We shall see, won’t we?Read More
In an apparent attempt to quell concerns from parents, regulators and legislators, Apple has moved to require password entry on every in-app purchase, closing a 15-minute grace period that some children used to inadvertently rack up pricey charges of virtual goods. The latest update to its iOS software 4.3 will now include the requirement, which Apple hopes will add further protections against unwanted purchases.Read More
We’ve seen reports of strange video behavior with Apple TVs before, and it looks like a new problem has now cropped up with the most recent update. According to a growing number of reports on the Apple support forums, those using an HDMI to DVI adapter to connect the device to their TV seem to have been hit with an annoying issue that causes their screen to flicker every few seconds. That’s apparently happening with a wide range of TVs, and at least some are also reporting the same thing happening even if they aren’t using an adapter. A few folks have apparently been able to fix things in the interim by simply pulling their HDMI cable and plugging it back in, but most are stuck with the annoying issue — or worse, a downgraded 480p signal. Having some similar issues? Let us know in comments.Read More

Within hours of the official release of iOS 4.3, developers have found further evidence that Apple plans to use its dual-core A5 processor in the next-generation iPhone.
Developers have found references to the A5 processor in a kernel file for a device codenamed N94AP, widely assumed to be the iPhone 5, within the code for iOS 4.3, as reported by iClarified.Read More
