Was the iPhone 5 Delayed to Accommodate at&t and Verizon’s 4G Plans?

As reported by iOSnoops earlier this week, for the first time in four years, Apple will not introduce a new iPhone at its yearly Worldwide Developers Conference in June.

The move was unexpected, as over the last months, most rumors seemed to indicate that the device was on track for a summer launch: several pictures of final iPhone 5 parts were leaked, we heard that prototypes were ready, and cases for the device are already being built by third parties.

In other words, the delay seems to be a purely business-driven decision, rather than a technical one.

Dev Team Getting Close to Releasing iOS 4.3 Untethered Jailbreak

Things seem to be happening on the jailbreaking front since Stefan Esser – aka i0n1c – uncovered a new iOS 4.3.x exploit a couple of days ago: according to the iPhone security expert, the Dev Team is already beta-testing his untether, in order to include it in an upcoming jailbreak tool.

While no date has been given at this stage, it shouldn’t take long before the Dev Team finally comes up with a full, untethered jailbreak compatible with iOS 4.3 and iOS 4.3.1.

As reported by iOSnoops yesterday, Esser’s exploit is only compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and first generation iPad, so do not expect an iPad 2 untethered jailbreak to be released anytime soon. Several weeks ago, Comex, the hacker behind jailbreakme, was the first to uncover an exploit compatible with the new tablet, but the hack has since then been patched by Apple, via the iOS 4.3.1 update.

Push Videos from an iPad 2 to an HDTV Wirelessly without AirPlay

AirPlay is a great way to stream videos from iPhones, iPod touches and iPads to AirPlay devices such as the Apple TV, but the technology is somewhat crippled, as it requires an AirPlay-enabled receiver to work. The technology might soon be built into HDTVs, but until then, the only alternative to AirPlay is Apple’s Digital AV cable, as it will allow you to connect your device to your HDTV via an HDMI cable.

If tethering your iPad to your TV is not practical for you, and if you don’t own an Apple TV, a couple of iOS fans came up with an elegant and simple alternative: using an HDMI wireless extender. The setup is simple, as all you need to do is to connect your iOS device to an HDMI transmitter via Apple’s Digital AV cable, to ‘stream’ the videos played on the device to an HDMI receiver plugged to your TV. The method is a bit crude, and the setup is bulky, but it works.

Note that a wireless HDMI transmitter will set you back at least $150, so you might be better off buying the second generation Apple TV instead. Even better, wait for AirPlay-enabled HDTVs to be available later this year.

Vimeo iPhone App: Finally!

After converting all of its videos to an HTML5-friendly format last year, YouTube’s largest competitor, Vimeo, finally released its very own iPhone app earlier today. The app comes free, and offers a slew of features that make the default YouTube app look mediocre at best.

Vimeo for iPhone offers all the essential functionalities already available via Vimeo’s website, such as the ability to browse and rate videos, leave comments, queue videos, and so on. But what makes Vimeo stand out is an impressive built-in video editor, designed to help Vimeo users produce their own videos, and automatically upload them to the online service.

iOS 5 to Become a Virtual Personal Assistant?

A little over a year ago, a startup called Siri built a new type of search app for the iPhone, able to find answers across the web for queries spoken in plain English, such as “find me a hotel,” or “where’s the closest Starbucks.” Depending on the query, the app invokes specific built-in APIs, in order to find the best answer possible, using search engines, maps websites, and so on.

Apple was so impressed by the technology that the company bought the startup, to integrate the capabilities offered by the app in an upcoming version of iOS. A year later, the technology still hasn’t made its way into our favorite operating system, but things might change soon, as according to a TechCrunch article published earlier today, the technology brought by Siri will be extensively used by iOS 5.

Didn’t Have Enough Time to Buy your WWDC Ticket? Get one on eBay for $2,500!

Apple ran out of WWDC tickets in less than 11 hours, and in case you weren’t able to get one, you might still be able to go, if you’re willing to pay a hefty premium.

Just like iPad 2s, tickets for the upcoming event are already up for grab on eBay, with a Buy It Now price of no less than $3,500 – more than twice the price of the ticket. As of the time this post is written, the listing has already attracted 12 bids, with a highest bid of $2,500.

If you absolutely need to go, and happen to have $3,500 laying around, you might want to use the Buy It Now option, as eBay and/or Apple will most likely terminate the listing before its scheduled end date (April 7).
