iOS 5 beta expires today: b7b redsn0w saves your data

iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users running the iOS 5 beta may find their devices not playing ball, with the preview copy of the recently released Apple platform expiring today. Although Apple targets its iOS betas at developers looking to get their apps up to speed with upcoming software changes, the low cost of entry to developer accounts has seen many regular users jump at the chance for early access as well; those same users may be left holding less-than-useful devices today, when the beta expires. Thankfully there's an unofficial tool to allow user data to be extracted.

iPhone 4/3GS get ultrasn0w SIM unlock tool for iOS 5

iPhone 4/3GS get ultrasn0w SIM unlock tool for iOS 5

The ultrasn0w iPhone unlock tool has been updated to support handsets running iOS 5, allowing owners of iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 to upgrade to the recently released new version of the platform but still use their phones with other SIMs. The new ultrasn0w is still effectively a tethered system for the iPhone 4, the iPhone Dev Team confirmed today, since currently the iOS 5 jailbreak (and which is necessary if you then want to unlock your phone) requires a USB connection on each reboot.

AT&T iPhone 4S limits at one per person

AT&T iPhone 4S limits at one per person

Reports today suggest that the iPhone 4S sales in the USA, or at least at AT&T stores, will be limited to one per person, with no differentiation made between normal sales and existing customer upgrades. In what is said to be an iPhone 4S training document sent out in PDF form to workers, AT&T has made clear that regardless of the purchases of said device being New, Upgrade, or No Commitment, "One device per person" is the limit. All said and done, this is half of what we could buy for the iPhone 4 launch. Not fair, what if I want to buy one for my rabbit?!

So you've got the prices for all the device on-contract, yes? Now we've got the real numbers for you if you plan on running away from the store with a device that's on no contract at all as well.

Samsung pushes iPhone 5 ban while antitrust specter looms

Samsung pushes iPhone 5 ban while antitrust specter looms

Courts at The Hague will rule on the Samsung versus Apple injunction request on October 14, deciding whether or not the Korean company can push ahead with its pre-emptive attempt to have the iPhone 5 banned from sale in Europe. Earlier today, Apple's legal team argued that Samsung had sought to mislead the 3G development process by withholding the fact that it was promoting the inclusion of certain technologies it had already patented. The Korean firm then attempted to ambush Apple, the lawyers suggested, in an attempt to distract from its own patent infringements, and demanding sky-high royalties.
