01/16/2012, Before the weekend, we reported that an untethered jailbreak for Apple’s iPhone 4S was close to being ready. How close you ask?

This is probably great news for iPhone 4S owners who […]
01/15/2012, An iPhone 4S without a camera? No, you did not wake up in a parallel universe, and neither did the folks at Apple go nuts with their design, but rather, the military in the city-state of Singapore has this niggling rule that prevents their personnel from owning smartphones with a camera (for obvious national security reasons, of course). Servicemen who own smartphones will need to show a certificate that their […]
01/12/2012, We reported earlier that Apple’s iPhone 4S is the next best thing since steamed rice in China, with long lines forming a day before it is meant to be sold over the counter.

I […]

While the iPhone 4S will be launched in […]
01/12/2012, The iPhone 4S goes on sale Friday midnight in China, and we can already tell that the phone is going to sell very well.

01/12/2012, Who would have thought that Apple’s voice assistant app known as Siri would actually launch a verbal tirade against the user – a 12-year old boy in this case, with obscenities that would turn even the white iPhone 4S red with shame after its outburst against Charlie Le Quesne after he asked Siri what the world’s population is. Charlie decided to have a go at a demo handset of the […]

12/16/2011, iOS users will find that a new update awaits them today which is essentially iOS 5.0.1 (Build 9A406). This is replace the current version of iOS 5.0.1 but does not appear to sport any major changes with one exception – decrypted ramdisks. For those who may not be so technically inclined, what this means is that theoretically Siri could be extracted from the iPhone 4S and ported to other iOS […]
