Apple orders iCab iOS browser to cripple JavaScript modules

The developer of iCab Mobile, a feature-rich alternative to the Safari Web browser on iPad and iPhone, has been ordered by Apple to remove its ability to download and install JavaScript modules. Presumably it's not the fact that iCab can execute JavaScript that's causing Apple to apoplectically puff and splutter, but rather its ability to download modules. Both Apple and Google frown upon...

Toyota pulls Cydia theme and ads to appease Apple

In news that will no doubt shake the very bedrock of your belief system, Apple has asked Toyota to remove its Scion theme and its advertising from ModMyi, a Cydia repository. The Scion theme has been available for weeks, but after it received a ton of press in the last couple of days, Apple finally lashed out. It's not like we should be surprised, considering Apple has claimed in the past...

Apple iAds get an app all to themselves with iAd Gallery for iPhone

Ever thought to yourself: "I wish there was a way that I could just see ads without the rest of this crummy ad-supported app getting in the way"? Well now you can, thanks to Apple's latest and greatest release -- the iAd Gallery app. This magical new app allows you to view all of Apple's current iAd advertising campaigns right on your iPhone: 'Great ads. On-demand. In your pocket. The iAd...

iOS 4.3.1 update now available, mostly bugfixes

Apple has released iOS 4.3.1, and it's now available via the "update" button in iTunes. 4.3.1 isn't a feature update, but it does fix a graphics glitch for the 4th-gen iPod Touch and some issues with connecting to cellular networks. The update isn't available for Verizon iPhone users -- who are still on 4.2.6 -- but it works with all other recent devices (including the iPad 2). It apparently...

Apple TV 4.2.1 update addresses flickering and sound issues

Apple has quietly pushed out an update for its second-generation Apple TV running iOS. The Apple TV 4.2.1 update addresses a couple of incredibly annoying bugs, which we've personally suffered from, including a flickering picture and a lack of audio when switching through sources on some TVs and AV receivers. The update should also cure the problem of the Apple TV sleeping with the fishes and...

Mac OS X 10.6.7 now available, fixes MacBook Pro issues and many bugs

Apple has just released Mac OS X 10.6.7. As its version number implies, this is a minor software update, even more so than 10.6.6 which at least ushered the Mac App Store into the world. However, 10.6.7 does apparently fix many issues that people who have bought the newest MacBook Pros have encountered, and as such it's a recommended update for all early 2011 MacBook Pro models. The update...

Test that showed Android browser faster than iPhone Safari was flawed

Yesterday's rather shocking finding that the Nexus S loads Web pages 52% faster than the iPhone 4 has turned out to be a sham. Apple has lashed out at Blaze Software, the company behind the test, saying: "Their testing is flawed. They didn't actually test the Safari browser on the iPhone. Instead they only tested their own proprietary app, which uses an embedded Web viewer that doesn't...

Apple iPhone and iPod touch confused over daylight saving time... again

The United States and Canada, with their early shift to daylight saving time (DST), are yet again acting as cannon fodder for other iPhone and iPod touch users around the world. Reports of DST-related malfunctions vary wildly, with some iPhone and iPod touch alarms going off early, some late, and with some working just fine. Crazily, one iPhone 3GS user says that his phone correctly jumped...

Enable iOS 4.3 gesture controls on your iPad with free Xcode 3 download

When the iOS 4.3 beta emerged it included 4-and-5-finger gestures for the iPad, such as pinching to return to the home screen, and swiping to reveal the multitasking tray or switch apps. Just one week later, Apple said that iPad gestures wouldn't make the cut, and indeed, iOS 4.3 was summarily released without gestures for the iPad and recently-released iPad 2. Don't despair, however: they can...

Google and Microsoft offer Japan tsunami and earthquake resources, Bing bungles it

Over the weekend, large corporations have been scrambling to offer support to the devastated north east of Japan, where a tsunami destroyed towns and farmsteads and looks set to claim over 10,000 lives. Google, as always, was the first to respond with a Google Person Finder for Japan. There is now a full Google Crisis Response page for the earthquake and tsunami, which is full of extensive...

iOS in-app purchases now always require password

Apple's in-app purchasing mechanism has suffered a small, but important change in iOS 4.3. Whereas before you could make as many in-app purchases as you pleased without having to enter your iTunes password for 15 minutes after last entering that password (for example, when purchasing an app or game), from now on entering the password will be required for each and every in-app purchase. This will...

iPhone and BlackBerry browsers fall at Pwn2Own

One day after IE8 and Safari fell prey to eager hackers during Pwn2Own's first day this year, the iPhone 4 and the BlackBerry browser have been exploited as well. The former was pwned by veteran Pwn2Own winner Charlie Miller, who developed an exploit that enabled him to run arbitrary code on the iPhone after visiting a specially-formatted Web page. Once he was 'in' the iPhone, he was able to...

Install iMovie on the original iPad without jailbreaking

Apple have just released an update to the iOS version of iMovie to support the iPad 2, but what about the original iPad? Well, currently you can't install iMovie on an original iPad using iTunes directly, but iMovie will run on your previous generation device as long as it's running iOS 4.3. Hit the break for a quick two-minute guide to getting iMovie onto your original iPad without a...

Apple releases Garageband and updated iMovie for iOS

To coincide with the release of the iPad 2 today, Apple's let loose both an update to the iOS iMovie app, supporting Apple's newest tablet, as well as a brand new GarageBand app for iPad. Released yesterday, both apps can be had for $5 a piece, and with some positive reviews coming in already, $4.99 seems quite a deal for the amount of utility you get, especially with GarageBand. Both apps...

How to solve iOS 4.3 syncing issues

If you're having issues syncing your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch after updating it to iOS 4.3, this tip is for you. It turns out that many people have seen a bug where, after updating any iDevice to the latest version of iOS, syncing with iTunes will stall at step four of four on syncing photos. The stalling is accompanied by a message that the sync could not be completed because "the required...
