Look carefully, it’s all about Apple iPhone 3.0 rumors.
Attention Apple iPhone Developers!
Apple iPhone OS 3.0 Beta 5 was released few days back and please take note about this announcement.
Apple has just sent out an email alert to iPhone developers that any new iPhone app submitted to the App Store will have to be ready for the iPhone 3.0 software, which is due shortly (probably around Apple’s WWDC event in June). Beginning today, any app submitted that isn’t 3.0 compatible will be rejected.
Looks like Apple’s just released iPhone OS 3.0 beta 5, a little over one week after its last revision. That’s about half the time they’ve put between the previous updates — seems the boys in Cupertino are really starting to churn these things out. You know the drill by now, we don’t know yet what the update entails, but we’ll tell you when we find out. Oh, and just like last time, it appears iTunes 8.2 is required.
There are rumors on the internet said that the next generation of iPhone/iPod Touch will support:
2) FM features. This is not only the normal function to receive FM Radio Signal, but it also able to broadcast FM signal, to your car audio system. Just like the MP3 FM Modulator we are using. Currently still not certain that this feature will be a built-in or it will be an additional plug-in module.
As previous post mentioned, Skype for iPhone is launched. And now, it become the most fast selling applications on iTune within these 2 years. It already get more then 1 million download within the 2 days after it luanch. In the first 2 days of sales, it hits about 6 downloads every second.
BUT, altough this is a free application, and so many iPhone users downloaded it, we got to know from Twitter, this version of Skype for iPhone is not user friendly enough, and still have a lot of bugs. Twitter users mention that it gives strange error from time to time. This version of Skype, is only supporting WiFi, which also become one of the limitation for most of the iPhone users to complain.
Let’s hope the coming version will get all these solved.
Thanks for reading.
On 2nd April 2009, Apple announce that they are releasing iPhone firmware 3.0 Beta 2. And on the next day (3rd April 2009), RebelSim announce that their RebelSim v61 is still able to unlock this version of firmware and baseband (iPhone Firmware 3.0 Beta 2, Baseband 4.22.01.). This is a good news to those who already got their RebelSim, or those that going to purchase it.
As of now, RebelSim v61 is able to unlock:
- iPhone Firmware 2.2, Baseband 2.28.00 (You don’t need RebelSim, Since Yellowsn0w can do the job for free.)
- iPhone Firmware 2.2.1, Baseband 2.30.03 (You need this, or any other turbosim. No way to unlock 2.2.1 without them, as of today.)
- iPhone Firmware 3.0 Beta 2, Baseband 04.22.01 (I have no heard anything out there can do this, except this one.)
So, If you are thinking of upgrading to Firmware 3.0 Beta 2, AND you successed on the jailbreak with the tool that is mentioned in previous post. You will need this RebelSim v61 to unlock your phone to work with your Mobile Service Provider simcard.
As we remember, the announcement of the release of iPhone 3.0 Firmware Beta (consider this is Beta 1) was just two weeks back.
What does this mean? One reason, this means that the Beta 1 is having a lot of BUGS.
All of us know that iPhone 3.0 is now possible to jailbreak, but as far as I know, it is still not able to unlock yet. But, even you are having a Globally unlock iPhone, it is better for you to stay on current version of firmware. Unless you are one of the developer in one of the development teams that writes iPhone Applications. Since you will be clam enough if you find out these bugs. An end user like me will only scold and throw (may be, anyone please stop me to do this, if I do…) the phone away.
