Evidence of a new, smaller iPad model continues to mount, with a new report claiming Apple told its component suppliers this week to prepare for mass production of such a device.
Citing anonymous sources, The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday that Apple's Asian component suppliers are preparing for mass production of the smaller iPad in September. The device is expected to have a screen size smaller than 8 inches.
For the second time in two months, Apple has disputed ownership of a domain associated with one of its products.
The company has filed a claim for the ipad3.com domain with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), a United Nations agency that arbitrates domain disputes.
The domain, which is inactive, was registered in January 2010 on the same day that then CEO-Steve Jobs introduced the first iPad at an Apple-hosted event in San Francisco. Domain Name Wire first reported Apple's claim on Friday.
According to a recent report at Patently Apple, China’s telecommunications bureaucracy last week granted a license for both 4G and 3G networks, which means Apple will be able to sell the latest iPad model on the mainland.
According to China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center website, the license was issued for the Apple device on Monday. Without it, the company couldn’t legally sell the new iPad in the Chinese mainland.
The guys from the Chronic Dev Team and the iPhone Dev Team, also known as the Dream Team, have taken center stage here in Amsterdam at the 2012 edition of the world renowned Hack in the Box (HITB) conference. Just before the event ended, the hackers held a press conference to answer a few questions.
Since they were probably the celebrities of the moment in Amsterdam, a fairly high number of media representatives showed up, eager to ask interesting questions. And the truth of the matter is that the answers given by the jailbreakers were nothing short of excellent.
The untethered jailbreak Absinthe v2.0 debuted on Friday with compatibility for almost all devices powered by Apple's A4 and A5 processors running the latest iOS 5.1.1 firmware, and is the first solution to unlock the new iPad.
Announced at the Hack in the Box event in Amsterdam, GreenPois0n Absinthe v2.0 is the result of a collaboration between the Chronic-Dev Team and iPhone Dev Team and gives iDevice users wider access to system features normally prohibited by Apple thus allowing for the download of applications and extensions unavailable in the official App Store.
