How to Find Airplay-Enabled Apps

Apple's got a convenient AirPlay-Enabled Apps section in the App Store for you to browse through, in case you want to test out your new iOS 4.3 to Apple TV functionality. I'm confused as to why Martha Stewart Makes Cookies needs AirPlay, but who's to say that it doesn't? (She'll cut you if you do.) [iTunes via 9to5Mac] » 3/14/11 2:26pm 3/14/11 2:26pm

iOS 4.3 Requires Passwords For In-App Purchases to Protect the Children

Apple's addressed the problem of kids buying in-game items with meatspace money by adding a password requirement in iOS 4.3, even if you've already entered in your password within the last 15 minutes to buy the game itself. The problem? iOS 4.3 is only available for the last two generations of iPhone, iPad and iPod… » 3/10/11 2:38pm 3/10/11 2:38pm

Wild Codemonkeys Discover the A5 Processor Will Be in the iPhone 5

Someone went digging through the iOS 4.3 code and discovered the same code for the A5 processor in references for both the iPad 2 and iPhone 5.

You Can Only Tether Three Things To Your iPhone 4 Over Wi-Fi

The personal hotspot feature in iOS 4.3 lets you tether only three things over Wi-Fi. If you want to go up to the advertised five devices, you'll have to use Bluetooth and USB and pretty much quintuple-team your iPhone in a way that's rather unseemly. [Engadget] » 3/04/11 4:39pm 3/04/11 4:39pm

The iOS 4.3 Gold Master has already been jailbroken, meaning you can do cool things like enable the four and five figner gesture support on your iPhone 4. Just follow these instructions and these, for multitouch. » 3/04/11 4:31pm 3/04/11 4:31pm

How Much Faster Is iOS 4.3 GM Than iOS 4.2?

So just what kind of Safari speed improvements can you expect when iOS 4.3 rolls out? I think the word you're looking for is "moderate." Or maybe "incremental." Still, faster is faster, and this test over Wi-Fi shows that iOS 4.3 is a definite uptick. » 3/04/11 10:59am 3/04/11 10:59am

AT&T Will Support iPhone 4 Hotspot With iOS 4.3

AT&T had kept quiet up until now about whether it would support the hotspot goodness that comes with iOS 4.3. With yesterday's official Apple announcement, though, the carrier has made its plans official: AT&T iPhone 4 owners can enable their handsets' hotspotability for $20/month (on top of the $25 Data Pro plan),… » 3/03/11 9:30am 3/03/11 9:30am

Are You Going to Buy the iPad 2?

The iPad 2 is here. It's crazy thin, rocks a dual core processor and has 2 cameras. Apple is even promising that both black and white versions will be available come March 11th for the same starting price as last year, $499. Clearly, it's the next generation of iPad. But! Some stuff hasn't changed: the screen isn't… » 3/02/11 4:00pm 3/02/11 4:00pm

Verizon iPhone 4 Not Getting iOS 4.3 Yet?

This is weird. On Apple's iOS 4.3 website, it makes no mention of the Verizon iPhone. In fact, it lists iOS 4.3 as compatible with only these devices: » 3/02/11 2:28pm 3/02/11 2:28pm

Photo Booth Lets You Make Funny Faces in Funny Scenes on the iPad 2

Not only does the iPad have FaceTime, it's getting Photo Booth too (just like your Mac). Interestingly, Photo Booth will be a built in app only available on the iPad and not the iPhone 4 (for the time being, at least). The iPad 2 rocking Apple's new dual core A5 chip is probably why.

iOS 4.3 Might Launch Next Week

Boy Genius claims iOS 4.3 is finished, and will be launched next week. Makes sense, allowing Steve Jobs to claim that the update will be released "now", with now being when he's on stage at the iPad announcement. [BGR] » 2/24/11 11:53am 2/24/11 11:53am

Free Access to The Daily iPad Magazine Means iOS 4.3 Coming on Feb 28?

The Daily, the iPad Magazine app that you can actually read for free on a computer, just extended their free access until Feb 28. Why? Because users need iOS 4.3 in order to do in-app recurring subscriptions. [Macrumors] » 2/14/11 3:06pm 2/14/11 3:06pm

Hints of Apple TV Gaming Buried in iOS 4.3 Beta Code

An Engadget tipster sifting through the code for iOS 4.3 beta 3 found mention of "ATVGames" and "ATVThunder," with references to some sort of controller, leaderboards, game scheduling, and a store front.

iOS 4.3 Beta 2 Hints at a New Media Streaming Service

While testing iOS 4.3 Beta 2, I came across a mysterious error message proclaiming PHOTOSTREAM_NO_NETWORK_WIFI. Thanks to 9to5 Mac digging into the iOS file system, that message makes some sense now: It may be referencing Apple's new media streaming service. » 1/19/11 8:40pm 1/19/11 8:40pm
