We all know the famous white earbuds that Apple is giving us when we purchase an iDevice. Unfortunately the quality of the earbuds is below average, but maybe the quality of the earbuds will improve because they will no longer be manufactured by the Japanese company FOSTER. The headphones for iPhones will be supplied by the two Taiwanese electronic manufacturers, with Hon Hai making wires and assembling the device, and Cheng Uei producing cords, loudspeakers and control switch modules. » Apple: New Manufacturers For iPhone Earbuds
Apple is in a good mood and decided to give us all some Black Friday shopping discount. You can save up to $101 on a MacBook Air, $41 on a iPad or $21 on a iPod Touch. But the discounts are not extreme “$11 on a iPod Nano” and similar as in Australia, but if you are planning to purchase a Apple device anyway this deal may help you a little. You can check out Apple’s Black Friday Deals here.
AirPlay lets you stream digital media wirelessly from your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch to your Apple TV and AirPlay-enabled speakers. So you can watch movies and photos on your widescreen TV and play music through the best speakers in the house.
Apple finally released iOS 4.2! It includes a lot of new features, especially for iPad users. iOS 4.2 brings multitasking to the iPad as well as folders. For iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone users Apple integrated AirPlay and AirPrint. One new feature for our iDevices is a free version of Find My iPhone, which is a MobileMe feature that helps you locate your missing device and protect its data. So head over to iTunes and update your iDevice.
9to5mac reported, that Apple is replacing their original iPhone 4 screws with torx screws instead of the basic small screws. This screw is harder to unscrew because its an unusual 5 point torx “instead of the basic 6 point torx”. So why did Apple decide to use these torx screws? Are they out of normal screws, or are they trying to prevent people from replacing their normal “black” front and back panel with a white one? Or is there an other reason for this change. What do you think?
MacRumors found some evidence, Apple might just be considering adding a free level of MobileMe service iDevice owners on iOS 4.2. “The evidence comes in the form of a new private framework known as AppleAccounts.framework that includes a series of device-specific error messages referring to free MobileMe accounts. In particular, the error messages include alerts regarding having reached “the maximum number of free accounts” for a given device and certain devices not being “qualified for free MobileMe service.” » Free MobileMe Service For iOS 4.2 Users?
Yesterday we told you that Apple will have a “big” iTunes announcement today. Well they did announce something, but it has nothing to do with cloud-based iTunes, longer song previews or anything like that. All they announced today is “The Beatles, Now on iTunes”. This is really disappointing if you ask me, because Apple told us, this will be “Another day. That you’ll never forget”. » Apple Disappointed iTunes Announcement
