Just a note normally I do a near live coverage of the events from Apple but due to prior plans I won’t be in from 6PM (London) till about 8 if not a bit later so I will still cover the event but it won’t be live as it has been at pervious events which is a shame as I’m really excited for this WWDC but I’ll still be keeping up on the events on my iPhone.
MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev-Team has revealed a video showing a successful jailbreak of the iPad. The new hack exploits a bug found on the 3.2 version of the iPad OS, however with the iPhone OS 4.0 being previewed on April 8th plans for a release of this jailbreak might be changed so that Apple can’t patch the bug. In a recent picture it shows Cydia running on the device.
According to a source, the new iPhone OS 4.0, which is rumored to be shown at the upcoming Apple event; will include multitasking, which has been wanted for a long time but many iPhone users but only those who jailbreak the device can use this feature. The source also says there will be a new UI, “to make navigating through the OS easier and more efficient” and also OS-wise mutli-touch gestures. However I see it unlikely that Apple will majorly change the UI of the OS as they like to keep things familiar.
The source also says how they will also be “some brand new syncing ability for the contacts and calendar applications” but that the new OS will only be available for the iPhone 3G and 3GS, this makes sense for the multitasking as the iPhone 2G doesn’t have enough RAM to be able to multitask properly.
Apple recently applied for a patent to put contacts on the iPhone home screen. The patent gives pretty solid evidence that the next iPhone OS iteration will include this feature.
The patent shows that the custom icons for contacts won’t just be for speed dialing but will be able to perform wide range of things, such as launching any app you specify that is personalized to the contact or display information about the contact.
One of the options has the icon for the contact that shows up on your home screen based on the persons proximity to you, so if someone gets within a certain range to you then they will show up on your home screen, however this will probably only work on iPhones or possibly phones that have GPS.
The icon can also be used to invoke one or more applications that are personalized to the contact. The icon can be modified to display information related to the contact. In one aspect, an icon associated with an entity can be temporarily displayed on the mobile device based on the proximity of the mobile device to the entity.
It’s possible that Apple could be testing the iPhone OS version 3.1.3 and version 4.0, which we assume would run on the new iPhone3,1 device being currently tested. The rumours have come from server logs showing the new versions of the OS.
The BoyGeniusReport found evidence of two new user agents in their log files. The first, iPhone OS 3.1.3 would be a minor bug fix. The second, iPhone OS 4.0 would be a significant upgrade to the operating system.
The user agents could be faked, but it’s likely by now that Apple are testing these versions of the OS.
