iPhone OS 4.0 announcement on 8th of April!

News is spreading! Apple just announcement that they will be giving us a sneak preview on 8th April! It’s only 5 days after the launch of iPad!
That is something we have not really seen Apple done.


Although we don’t have any information of the sneak preview.. But we all know lots of new things will be in..

Maybe the long waited multitasking!


6 icons rather than 4 on iPad’s bottom dock!

By default, iPad’s bottom dock only holds 4 icons, which is the same as iPhone, but iPad have so much a larger screen. Worry no more! You can actually put 6 not 4 icons on the iPad’s dock!

Now it actually looks better as there are really too much empty space if your dock only holds 4. With more icons, also means you can get to the App you want faster and easier!

By clicking on and holding the on any icons (like what you do normally for iPhone or iPod Touch), the apps can be rearrange. Just drag 2 more icons into the bottom dock and they will stay there!

Thanks gizmodo for finding this trick.


Smash iPad with baseball bat? [video]

Lots of people buy iPad because they want to use it at home, use it while watching TV. Use iPad while preparing dinner or even in toilet. But apparently, this guy in this video, bought iPad just to smash it into pieces!

It is either he is a Apple hater or he just have too much money to spend! If so, why not sponsor us the iPad?! Haha. Please send your details email@usingapple.com if you are interested in sending us 1. Thanks!

iPad is much faster than iPhone 3GS

Gizmodo did a SPEED test, loading both apps at the same time to see if iPad’s A4 chip will have faster performance than iPhone 3GS existing hardware.
It seems that iPad is really faster in loading games, rendering Google Maps and so on.

Another impressing product by Apple, they really nail the usability that lots of product company fails to understand.

thousands of iPad Apps are in iTunes App Store now!

Days before iPad is launch, Apple has launch their iPad App Store. It is sharing the same App Store with iPhone, with just a tab to select whether you want to browse the iPhone or iPad store. Nevertheless, thousands of Apps are approved for iPad, and numbers of iPad Apps downloads are sure to be more thousands.

Honestly, to my knowledge, we have not seen a product have so many Apps before it is launch. Imagine how many developers and effort were put into all this approved apps, way back in time before iPad is launch? I’m sure developer start coding the first day iPad was announced.
