Apple iOS 4.2 Announced and Shown Off, Coming Later This Year to iPad

Apple iOS 4.2 Announced and Shown Off, Coming Later This Year to iPad

We just told you about iOS 4.1, which is set to launch for the iPhone and iPod Touch next week, but what about the iPad? Well, thankfully Steve Jobs knows that we've been waiting for that, too, as he has just pulled the curtain off the updated software for the iOS mobile Operating System. Unlike iOS 4.1, this is meant primarily for one device: the iPad, and while it's bringing plenty of iOS 4.1 features, it's also adding a few goodies, too.

Acer chairman: iPad market share will drop to 20-30%

Acer chairman: iPad market share will drop to 20-30%

There's nothing wrong with a bit of ambition, but we can't help but wonder if Acer chairman JT Wang is going to end up regretting his cavalier predictions about the iPad's falling market share.  Speaking to Chinese language paper the Economic Daily News, Wang suggested that by the time the tablet market "stabilizes" Apple's share will have dropped from nearly 100-percent to 20 to 30-percent.  The Acer chairman suggests that Apple's closely-tied hardware, software and content divisions helped them "preempt" the market, but highlights recent research that found Android market share had surpassed that of iOS.

Apple iOS 4.0.2 Software Update Unleashed

Apple iOS 4.0.2 Software Update Unleashed

Apple has just released the iOS 4.0.2 software update for the majority of their iDevices. But, unlike many other updates in the past, this one's primary focus is one thing, and one thing only: to patch up that pesky malicious PDF situation that shot up a couple weeks back. The update doesn't really do anything other than that, despite the fact it comes in two variations: 4.0.2 and 3.2.2. (for the iPad).

Apple Planning Mid-August Press Event for iPod Touch and iOS, Rumors Suggest

Apple Planning Mid-August Press Event for iPod Touch and iOS, Rumors Suggest

Maybe it's the fact that there were some more leaks of the new iPod Touch with a camera yesterday, or --better yet--, maybe Apple doesn't want their wares showing up on eBay without, you know, them making a bundle from their initial sales, first. But, either way, a new rumor that has popped up today tells a story of Apple going out of their way to bring a major press event some time around the middle of this month. And, sure enough, a new iPod Touch gets top billing.

Apple fix for iOS PDF exploit in pipeline

Apple fix for iOS PDF exploit in pipeline

Apple has reportedly come up with a fix for the remote PDF exploit that led the German government to issue an official warning about iPhone security.  The exploit is the loophole used for the Safari-based jailbreak launched at the weekend; as well as allowing Apple devices to be hacked for unofficial third-party applications (and the first step in the path for unlocking locked handsets), it also leaves the door open for malicious attacks which could potentially get root privileges on the device.

iOS4 Bluetooth problems reported: patchy connections & shoddy audio?

How's your Bluetooth?  We didn't notice any issues with the Bluetooth performance when we reviewed the iPhone 4, but it looks like others haven't been so lucky.  Multiple complaints (see here, here, here and here) have sprung up in the Apple support forums since the release of iOS4, either for upgraded iPhone 3GS handsets or iPhone 4 units with the latest OS preloaded, with owners describing sporadic connections, an inability to play music wirelessly and poor audio quality during calls.

iPad iOS4 upgrade fee tipped; EULA would seem to suggest otherwise

iPad iOS4 upgrade fee tipped; EULA would seem to suggest otherwise

Some iPad confusion this morning, as reports out of Stuff.tv suggest that Apple may be planning to charge iPad owners a fee to upgrade their tablets to iOS4 this fall.  According to their app developer sources, the upgrade fee is a "definite" and if they refuse to pay it then iPad owners will miss out on multitasking, folders and other tidbits.  Of course, that strongly contrasts with talk of the iPad EULA back in March, which suggested that Apple would provide iPad owners with "the next major iPad OS software release following the version of iPad OS software that originally shipped from Apple on your iPad, for free."
