Google and Apple have upped their game in 2012, and a new crop of smartphones running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Apple's new iOS 6 will offer consumers a tough choice when it comes to choosing a new phone.
Apple isn't expected to launch the next iPhone until the fall. But the company gave a preview of what's to come with the unveiling of iOS 6 mobile software this week at its WWDC conference in San Francisco. From what I can tell, the new iPhone will give the current crop of Android 4.0 devices a run for their money.
A set of photos that may depict Apple's 2012 iPhone has surfaced, though the authenticity of the images remains unverified.
If accurate, the photos, which were published by Chinese site iPhone中文网 (Google Translation, via MacOtakara), would appear to corroborate separate rumors that have suggested the next iPhone will have a smaller dock, larger speakers and a metal back.
Apple's sixth-generation iPhone could include a front-facing camera capable of HD resolution, according to a new analyst report.
The Cupertino, Calif., company is expected to make "quite a few essential adjustments" to its next iPhone, KGI analyst Mingchi Kuo said in a note to investors earlier this week.
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.
