iOS 4.3 is out now! Faster Safari, Personal Hot Spot and Home Sharing!

Apple have released iOS 4.3, those who have yet to update, be sure to update!

Why?

  • Because you will be getting much faster Safari meaning faster web browsing…
  • Personal Hot Spot which you can broadcast a Wifi network that devices like your Macbook and laptops can connect to.

    Is iPhone 5 getting Aluminum backing?

    Is Apple iPhone 5 going to get an Aluminum Backing?

    Aluminum Backing for iPhone 5?

    This mock up looks like iPhone 3GS with Aluminum backing? So will iPhone’s design go back to iPhone 3GS-like? To be honest, I don’t think so, at least not for iPhone 5. I don’t think Apple will change their design so soon, but who knows? iPad 2 have a changed in design although iPad is only out for 1 year.

    Why Apple might not go back to Glass backing like iPhone 4?

    1. Remember our legendary White iPhone 4? Due to the white backing, iPhone 4 have light leaks and flash issue
    2. Glassgate – some iPhone 4 users dropped their phone and cracked the backing as the back of iPhone 4 is not as strong as the screen. Results shows that iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G are more durable than iPhone 4
    3. Unified Looks for all Apple Product – Apple Macbook Pro, iPads and iPod Touch all have aluminum backing or full-body, thus it will be a more unified look for iPhone to have it too?

    No one knows for sure what we will be getting for iPhone 5, so let’s wait and see!

    iPhone 3G not supported in Game Center

    Steve Jobs have announced that Game Center is coming to us when iOS 4.1 launch, and we received news that Game Center have already went live as iOS 4.1 is going to launch today. But which iDevice can be used for Game Center? Apple have just confirm on its Game Center overview page that this social network for gaming will be available for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 2nd Gen, 3rd Gen and 4th Gen.

    Supported Devices for iOS 4.1 Game Center

    No sight of iPhone 3G, original iPhone or original iPod. Seems like they won’t be support in this new social networking service. Although reviews have shown that iOS 4.1 will improve iPhone 3G’s performance, but seems like iPhone 3G still can’t keep up with Apple’s pace, and is slowly dying off…

    Game Center

    Game Center will allow you to find friends, add gaming friends, or even find random people to play game either to compete or help out each other in the game. Leaderboards and achievement are one of the few motivation that will push gamers to play on, and improve on their scores.

    Apple released 16 July iPhone 4 Press Conference Video

    Apple have released their 16 July iPhone 4 Press Conference Video to the web and public! Not only that they have released video of it, they also launched new pages of iPhone 4’s Antenna and the Design and Lab Test.

    Apple is very honest to the users, saying that iPhone 4’s Antenna is a physical issue and cannot be solve by Software updates, but they also let everyone know that this issue is not iPhone 4 only issue. This is a issue for lots of smartphone out in the market, not only smartphone, phone with antennas.

    Apple giving out Free Case

    To solve this antenna issue that got out of hand, Apple have decided to give out iPhone 4 Bumper Case/3rd Party Case to all iPhone 4 users, including those who have already bought one(they will be given full refund). This is a good news to everyone, as I am sure most iPhone users have case or at least wants to buy a case to protect their iPhone.

    Apple iPhone 4 Antenna

    Apple’s iPhone 4 Antenna Page, shown us how this Antenna Death Grip happens to other smartphone like BlackBerry Bold, HTC Droid Eris, Samsung Omnia II and iPhone 3GS!

    Although iPhone 4’s Antenna Issue can be most easily seen due the external antenna’s design, many iPhone 4 owners report better call quality and lesser drop calls compare to iPhone 3GS.

    Apple’s Antenna Design and Test Labs

    Apple also show to the world their state-of-the-art facilities for their Antenna design and test labs. They looks really complex and really impressive. Honestly it reminds me of Professor X’s Cerebro.

    Apple's Antenna Design and Test Labs

    X-Men Cerebro

    Quite similar right? I can say that Apple’s Test Lab really looks very impressive, and hope that they will do a better job on their iPhone 5 and hopefully solve the Antenna Issue, which no Smartphone Manufacturer have solve.
