Tethering in iPhone OS 4.0 Beta

"Yes! Yes! Yes! Those sounds you heard moments ago are the horrified screams of your nearest AT&T towers. Why? Because iPhone OS 4.0 Beta 4 brings us a new option in the settings menu: Tethering."

Well, from the screen shot above it certainly looks like they may offer tethering with the next iPhone OS. The only obstacle will be AT&T. At least it is supported now, or will be once iPhone OS 4 is released. Any thoughts as to if AT&T will actually allow it and when it will happen?

No iPhone 4.0 for 1st Gen iPhone Owners

"This could be bad news for owners of the original iPhone: Steve Jobs told an inquiring customer over e-mail that the first-gen iPhone (the EDGE-only model with the aluminum back) will not be compatible with iPhone OS 4, Engadget reports."

What are your thoughts? Is this too soon to cut off updates for a product that has been out for three years? I'm of the opinion that it isn't based on the advances to the hardware itself.

Forced Ratings to Disappear in 4.0

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 08:00 AM

"The next revision of the iPhone OS will remove the rating prompt that users see when they delete an app from their device."

This was implemented first in iPhone 2.2 and was supposed to increase feedback ratings in the App Store. Developers complained that it encouraged negative feedback rather than positive. I find it annoying myself so personally am glad they are doing away with this in 4.0. What are your thoughts?

So What Did We Learn About iPhone OS 4.0 Today?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 02:29 PM

Just what did Steve Jobs teach us today? Well, initially what we learned about what the latest product to come out of Cupertino, the iPad. We learned 300,000 iPads sold on Saturday (with a total of 450,000 so far), 250,000 books downloaded on day one and as of today that total reached 600,000. We also learned that there are over 185,000 apps in the App Store with 3,500 of them specifically for the iPad. And we learned that the iPhone won the JD Power satisfaction award for 2010 making it three years in a row. They have also sold 50 million iPhones, and a combined 85 million iPhones and iPod Touches. For the iPhone OS 4.0 we learned that there are over 100 new user features, that include creating playlists, 5x digital zoom, tap to focus, home screen customizable wallpaper, file and delete mail search results and many others but Steve wanted to focus on just seven of those features.
