Mac Developers: If you did not attend WWDC2011, you can now download the videos.

As usual, Apple will hold their World Wide Developer Conference every year, and without fail, they will post the videos records during the conference up for download. Although the videos are only made available for Mac Developers, but this is greatly helpful, especially those developers we did not make it to the conference itself.

I’m sure with all the videos, developers can learn more about the up coming iOS 5 and Lion OS with ease. So check out the videos from WWDC 2011 here. Videos can be either downloaded to iTunes, or stream via Safari and I’m sure you can watch them via iPad or iPhones.


WWDC Sessions Video on iTunes U now!

Apple conducted more than 100 individual sessions during WWDC 2010, now it is made available worldwide for free at iTunes U! Videos in iTunes U are available in both HD and Standard definition.

This is a good news to all the Apple fans and developers as they can actually view the sessions even if they missed or was unable to buy the tickets for this year’s Apple World Wide Developer Conference. Last Year, Apple charges developers who didn’t pay for a WWDC ticket $500 to access session videos!

iPhone 4 – Thinnest SmartPhone on Earth

iPhone 4, new design, different from what you have seen for previous 3 generation of iPhone. Now iPhone 4 is 9.3mm thick, 24% thinner than iPhone 3GS! iPhone 4 is now the thinnest smartphone out in the market.

iPhone 4 is getting new and better screen, 3.5 inch IPS display, 960X640 pixel(4X more), 326 pixel per inch, 800:1 contract ratio, Share images!

Here’s a comparsion – iPhone 3GS:

iPhone 4 Screen, it is much clearer and sharper!

Now we have seen the better screen, Apple showed us how the internal looks like for iPhone 4, look at the picture and you will realise, they really make everything small! Now the biggest part is the battery, and the battery only. The rest are just mainboard and chips.

Afterall iPhone 4 is mainly battery, thus there is also a improvement in iPhone 4, now we can have 300 hours standby, 3G talk for 7 hours, 3G data browsing for 6 hours, 10 hours of video and 40 hours of music. It is almost as good as iPad, but of course for the size of iPhone, it is really quite hard to match the battery life.

It is quite new to us, iPhone 4 will have gyroscope, now iPhone will have 6 axis motion sensing, better motion sensing now with gyroscope and accelerometer! So more motion sensing games coming to us like what Steve Jobs played.

iPhone 4 is getting better camera! 5Megapixel camera, which 5x digital zoom, tap to focus, LED Flash, backside illuminated sensor, better camera engine. Now we can shoot better photos in low lights, and better picture quality.

I think this is the biggest update for iPhone 4, now we can record 720p HD video 30fps on iPhone 4! It is pretty cool, I think we can use the LED Flash for video recording, thus night shots will be better. Apple is also selling us iMovie for iPhone, where you can edit your iPhone Video on the go, without any Mac/PC, and export to a version that you.

iMovie for iPhone, where you can edit your video shot on iPhone 4, and export it out on the move.

iPhone OS 4 is now renamed to iOS4 due to iPad? But everything else is as reported previously for iPhone OS 4. Nothing special other than Rentia Display Integration.

iBookStore is coming to iPhone, it will wirelessly sync all your books, bookmarks, notes without extra charges.

iAds will be huge for the coming iOS4, integrated with iOS4, developer will be able to place Ads in their Apps, and users will be able to view the ads, without exiting the App!

iPhone 4 to iPhone 4 video chat coming, and it is called FaceTime, which is weird when they have iChat. I’m not sure why they did not use it, but anyway we will be getting iPhone 4 to iPhone 4 video chat but WIFI only!

Zero Setup required for FaceTime, meaning you can just chat straight from the box(but you need to setup your Wifi first), Front and Rear camera can be used! 🙂 That’s sweet.

iPhone Price Updates: iPhone 3GS will be $99, iPhone 4 16GB will be $199, iPhone 4 32 GB will be $299! I think the pricing are quite agressive! They ain’t as expensive as it was when they launch iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS!

June 24 will be the launch date for US, France, Germany, UK and Japan! It is fast, it is only like 2 weeks from now! What is more exciting is that Singapore is going to get iPhone by July! Which is also when we will get iPad, a combo month?

iPhone 4 Launch in Singapore by July! Excited!

Apple will be selling us bunkers for iPhone 4 which will be like a iPhone case that protects the side of iPhone.

Other than all this news, we will also be getting iOS4 by June 21, which will be 3 days before iPhone 4 launch in US, and 4 other countries.

More updates will be coming soon! Stay Tuned at UsingApple.com for more news and updates! [Thanks Engadget & Gdgt for Photos]

According to reports from French Blog MacGeneration, one of announcement on Monday’s WWDC 2010 is Safari! It has been a while since Apple update their Safari, with Google’s Chrome gaining more and more market shares, it’s time for them to update their browser too?

From the document posted, Safari 5 will come with built-in Reader(RSS Reader) to better and easier RSS Reading, Bing will also join the rest of the search engine like Yahoo! and Google. 25 Percent faster performance for JavaScripts  and DNS prefetching like Chrome. Improved HTML5 Supports, like Full-Screen HTML5 Video, GeoLocation and more.

Jobs ensured we won’t be disappointed with the announcements coming from WWDC2010

Recently Google updated their Android to 2.2, which includes features like wireless music sync, which iTunes don’t have. WebM/VP8 going against Apple’s support for h.264 and even GoogleTV which is targeted to AppleTV.

But which this email from jobs, can we tell ourselves that something big is coming? Although we have already seen the iPhone Next Gen, we are still not sure what will be coming other than that!
