We told you about the fact that Single-use alarms don’t work at all on januari 1st and 2nd, because of a bug in iOS 4.0.2 and 4.1. Apple responded on this issue with the next message “We’re aware of an issue related to non-repeating alarms set for January 1 or 2. Customers can set recurring alarms for those dates and all alarms will work properly beginning January 3.”. This is not the first time the iOS alarm had some trouble, so hopefully Apple will do something about it this time. » Apple Aware Of iPhone Alarm Issue

Apple has disabled a jailbreak detection API, but no one knows why. Apple did this without any explanation. This jailbreak detection API could see if your iDevice is modified or not, and disables the feature to sync with iTunes. This can mean two thinks. One, Apple finally surrendered and let jailbreakers do his thing “but that’s very unlikely”, or Apple found an other way to stop people from jailbreaking their iDevice. We don’t have more information yet but will let you know when we do. » Apple Disabled Jailbreak Detection API
