Software Update to Fix iPhone 3G Performance Issues is Coming Soon, Confirms Steve Jobs

Apple CEO Steve Jobs has confirmed that a new software update for iOS 4.x will be rolled out soon to fix performance woes on iPhone 3G, running iOS 4.x. He confirmed this in a reply to an email, sent to him by a user who expressed his frustration over the performance of his iPhone 3G on iOS 4, calling it ‘”dog slow”.
iOS 4
I’ve waited patiently through 4.0.1 and 4.0.2, looking for a fix that will make my phone work again. I’ve read the forums that advise me to jailbreak my phone or use some other method so I can downgrade back to a version of iPhone 3, however I’m not prepared to use a method that is not supported by Apple.
Steve Jobs replied:
Software update coming soon.
Sent from my iPhone
While he didn’t give any specific version number or release date for the upcoming software update, it is likely that the software update he is referring to in the email is iOS 4.1 which will be released next month at Apple’s Media event, where the next-gen iPod touch, and rumored iTV (Apple TV) announcements will take center-stage.

Apple won't get 'iTV' without a fight

The Apple TV might soon be called the iTV. But U.K. television network iTV won't be happy about it.
Speaking to Pocket-Lint in an interview, Mike Large, iTV acting group director of communications, said his company values the iTV brand and has "vigorously defended" it in the past. He stopped short of saying iTV would go to court with Apple, but indicated his company plans on being the only firm to use the iTV name.
"iTV has a very strong brand, and a highly valued IP," Large told Pocket-Lint. He went on to say that licensing the name, another option for the company if Apple decides to change the Apple TV's name to iTV, wouldn't be acceptable because it could "muddy the waters."
Although Large didn't want to target Apple directly, the U.K.'s Mirror publication spoke with an anonymous source within iTV who was more direct, saying that the company would fight until the bitter end to make sure Apple can't use its name.
"You only have to look at recent problems with the iPhone 4 to see not everything Apple produces is gold dust," the source told Mirror. "We all take our iTV brand very seriously and we'll do everything in our power to protect it."
Of course, Apple might decide to keep the Apple TV moniker. It could also decide to use iTV in the United States (iTV doesn't own the trademark in the States) and call it the Apple TV elsewhere. It could also, of course, call it something entirely different.
An Apple spokeswoman said the company "does not comment on rumors or speculation."

Browser-based iOS 'jailbreak' utilizes 'scary' PDF security hole

The latest browser-based "jailbreak" for iOS devices, including the iPhone 4, utilizes a PDF exploit that one prominent security expert called both "scary" and "very beautiful work."

Sean Sullivan, security advisor with F-Secure Corporation, revealed on Tuesday the technical details of the jailbreak process, which is done entirely in the Mobile Safari browser. The site includes 20 separate PDFs for different combinations of hardware and firmware.

The same PDF files crash both Adobe Reader and Foxit on Windows platforms, relying on a corrupt font. On the iPhone, PDF viewing is built into the Safari browser, and the attack crashes the Compact Font Format handler.

Sullivan also linked to comments made via Twitter by security researcher Charlie Miller, who was also analyzing the code behind the browser-based jailbreak.

"Very beautiful work," Miller wrote. "Scary how it totally defeats Apple's security architecture."

While the URL itself is not intended for malicious purposes, the PDF exploit it uses could be utilized by hackers to more nefarious ends. Miller said that with this method, a hacker does not need physical access to an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad -- they just simply need to have the user visit a vulnerable website.

Last year, Miller exposed a dangerous SMS exploit that could allow a hacker to remotely control an iPhone. He notified Apple of the flaw, and the company quickly released a patch to plug the exploit.

Apple is likely to quickly act once again and plug the vulnerability that affects all iOS devices -- all models of the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. When that happens, hackers who want to jailbreak iOS devices to run unauthorized code and operating system modifications blocked by Apple will have to find another method.

The member of the iPhone Dev Team who goes by the handle "comex" said this week that he has other potential exploits he will look to when Apple inevitably patches the PDF flaw.

"Maybe I'll rely on USB based stuff for the next jailbreak so that Apple won't patch it so fast," he said.


Ironically, jailbreakers have already developed a workaround solution that can help users avoid being hacked through the PDF exploit. Developer Will Strafach on Tuesday released an application available on the jailbroken Cydia store that will warn users when a Mobile Safari page is loading a PDF file. The solution does not patch the hole, but helps to prevent users from visiting sites with all PDF files to avoid the exploit.

Windows Phone 7 vs iOS 4 – Web Browser Speed Test [Video]

Earlier this week, Microsoft started sending out developer-only test units built by Samsung and LG to developers to help them test the performance of their upcoming apps on actual handsets rather than emulators. Folks at NewsGeek site has put this test phone which is running Technical Preview version of Windows Phone 7 against iPhone 3GS running iOS 4 for a head-to-head web browser speed comparison. Unfortunately, since the test was conducted on a (different?) 3G network instead of WiFi (see the Disclaimer below), In all fairness, it will be unfair to pick one winner between Mobile Safari and Mobile IE.
iOS 4 vs Windows Phone 7
Disclaimer: this video was made as a part of a "first view" article that we wrote on windows phone 7. In that article we specifically mentioned that this test was taken using 3G and not WiFi, so some of the gap between the phones can be explained due to connectivity issues. putting that a side, we can also say that iPhone 3gs is a finished product while the windows 7 based Samsung device that we test is a developer phone we an OS that is still in development.
Also since this Samsung test unit is running an unfinished version of OS on a prototype hardware, we can expect it to perform better when it is finally released this fall. Sites like Engadget and Gizmodo have already found Mobile IE surprisingly “a really pleasant experience” than what they thought it would be.
Loading the desktop version of Engadget was just a hair slower than an iPhone 4, and just as importantly, rendering new parts of the page as you scroll is plenty fast — not instantaneous, but fast enough so that you never find yourself consciously waiting for it to catch up.
Internet Explorer is surprisingly competent, and quick, given that it’s built mostly off of the desktop version of IE7. Most of the sites I went to, from Gizmodo to the Atlantic, loaded without any problems, just like you’d expect them to.
Only a hair slower than iPhone 4? not bad for a browser and OS which is still in Beta. Now if only we could see it in action on video.. that would be great !

25 Things You Can Remote Control With Your iPhone

One of the more interesting things you can do with the iPhone is use it as a remote control for other devices. Since the iPhone App Store launched almost two years ago, developers have created hundreds of remote control applications. [via gizmodo]

Some of them are for entertainment — designed to control A/V equipment in your living room. Others control household appliances, functions on your computer, or even expensive corporate security systems.

For now, most remote control apps operate over the Internet, or via a wi-fi or Bluetooth link between your iPhone and another device. But one company is developing an infrared iPhone accessory, which will open the doors for even more remote control applications.

It's conceivable that, with these apps and accessories, an iPod touch could replace the fanciest of universal remotes, and have the bonus of shipping with a Web browser and all the other apps on the App Store.


More TV providers are releasing iPhone apps to use as DVR remotes. Recently, Comcast published an app that allows some of its digital cable subscribers program their DVRs remotely. And free apps from DirecTV, DISH Network, and AT&T let you program your digital video recorder from anywhere.

Zipcar rental car

The free Zipcar app lets you find and book rental cars. But the impressive part is that you can also use your iPhone to unlock the car or make its horn beep.

Home lights and automation system

A recent Apple commercial highlights this app for the Schlage LiNK home automation and security systems. You can watch your doors, lock and unlock them, turn lights on and off, etc.

TV, other gadgets

This isn't just an app but a $50 hardware add-on that gives your iPhone infrared support.

When it ships — supposedly soon — the L5 remote accessory will let you turn your iPhone into a universal remote, replacing any number of remote controls that are on your coffee table.

Chevy Volt

This free app lets you access info for a Chevy Volt electric car via OnStar, including charging info, driving stats, door locks, horn, and lights.


Via Apple's free Remote app, search and change the song playing on your computer's iTunes jukebox from bed, across the house, or even outside. Or change volume settings, or hit pause, etc.

Another app called PodLink ($2.99) lets you wirelessly control music playing on another iPhone or iPod touch, perhaps one that is being played in a docking station across the room.

There's also a $3.99 app to control WinAmp if you use that.

Mouse and keyboard

Apps like the $1.99 Air Mouse Pro (limited free version also available) turn your iPhone or iPod touch into a wireless trackpad and keyboard.

This is helpful if you want to kick back and don't have a wireless keyboard, or if you're using an old computer hooked up to your TV and want to access the cursor or type something from the couch.

A reader notes a free, similar app from Logitech. The $3.99 TouchPad app is another alternative.

Blu-ray Discs

Several Blu-ray discs include Internet features that can be accessed via iPhone apps. For example, the free "pocket BLU" app can act as a remote for Blu-ray discs that support "pocket BLU" — including "Bruno," "Funny People," other movies. Features include controlling playback, browsing through chapters, the soundtrack, etc.

Other Blu-ray remote apps are available for different systems, including the Sony PS3.

Roku video player

If you use a Roku video player — the cheap, no-frills box that plays Netflix, Amazon, MLB.TV videos, etc. — you can get the free Rokumote app and control your Roku without its plastic remote.


Apple's $0.99 Keynote remote lets you control Keynote presentations if you own the iWork suite.

Other apps, like Evan Schoenberg's versatile $0.99 Rowmote can steer PowerPoint slides.

Desktop PC or Mac

This one takes a little tinkering, but free VNC — "virtual network computing" — remote desktop software on your computer (Mac, PC, Linux, etc.) will let you view and control it from anywhere, provided it's turned on and hooked up to the Internet.

A search for "VNC" in the App Store turns up more than 30 apps. The VNC app we've been using for our iPhone is the free Mocha VNC Lite; there's also a pro version for $5.99.

Logitech Squeezebox

If you use a Logitech Squeezebox home audio system, the $9.99 iPeng app seems to be the best reviewed remote control. Control volume, switch songs, etc.


If you have a SlingBox — a device designed to let you watch your home TV/cable service from anywhere, over the Internet — you can use your iPhone to watch TV.

The $29.99 SlingPlayer Mobile app recently got an important new feature, which allows you to stream TV from your SlingBox over 3G. Previously, it only worked over wi-fi.

iCarly - Sam's Remote

This one is for the kids: Fans of the cable TV show "iCarly" may appreciate the $1.99 "Sam's Remote" app, which includes sounds from the show.


A $2.99 app called PhotoKeys:Photoshop Remote puts the Adobe Photoshop toolbar on your iPhone. Not for everyone, but could be helpful for some setups.

Apple TV

Apple's free Remote software also controls the Apple TV set-top box, if you have one of those.

A recent update adds a nifty feature that lets you use your iPhone's multi-touch screen as a "gesture pad" to scoot around the Apple TV display. This is much easier than using the small, plastic remote that came with Apple TV.

You can also use the Boxee remote app to remote-control Boxee, if you've loaded that onto your Apple TV.

Sonos Home Stereo

If you have a Sonos multi-room sound system — especially the popular, newish S5 — your iPhone is a remote via the free Sonos Controller app.

Pro audio software

The ProRemote ($99.99) and ProRemote Lite ($35.99) act as sliders and other controls for pro audio editing software, including ProTools and Apple's Logic software.

Burglar Alarm

CPI Security customers can use a free iPhone app (with additional service) to monitor their home security system, turn it on and off, see activity history, etc.

X-Plane Flight Simulator

Sort of like how Nintendo's DS has a touch-sensitive second screen that often controls what's happening on the first screen, this will let you control and observe some of your flight simulator's features — on your computer — using the iPhone as a smaller, second screen.

Requires the $4.99 X-Plane Remote app and the $29 desktop X-Plane software.


Ladies: We're not quite sure how this one works, but the $9.99 "Boyfriend remote" app is worth every penny if it performs magic.

You can tell it to "give me money," "forget about beer," and even "take me to the mall." Classy.

Also available: Girlfriend Remote and Parent Remote.


If you use the free Boxee media center software on your Mac, PC, Linux box, or Apple TV, you can use your iPhone as a remote via Boxee's free app.

(What's Boxee? Think of it as a multimedia-specialized Web browser that you're supposed to steer from your couch. Lets you watch Netflix movies, MLB.TV, and other Web video streams.)

VLC Media Player

If you use the free, popular VLC (Video LAN client) media player app, you can control it with your iPhone via the free VLC Remote app or its $2.99 premium cousin.

Security Camera

Plenty of security camera monitoring apps in the App Store, depending on your rig.

By far the most expensive, though, is Lextech Global Services' $899.99 iRa Pro, which delivers "a video command center to the palm of your hand."

Digital SLR Camera

onOne software makes a lite ($1.99) and pro ($19.99) version of its DSLR remote app.

If you hook your Canon EOS or Nikon DSLR camera up to a computer via USB, you can remotely control settings, fire the shutter release, and see your camera's viewfinder remotely over wi-fi.

The main drawback is that your camera has to be hooked up to a computer.
