A new version of the Apple iOS has been released and with iOS 5.1.1 there comes the task of the many hackers and the jailbreak community to provide a new jailbreak solution and a way to unlock iPhone 4 on iOS 5.1.1.

The various dev teams have already begun bringing out updates to their jailbreak and unlock utilities. The new iOS doesn’t seem to have anything major in terms of changes and most of the changes are to fix bugs and provide a few performance enhancements. For those iPhone owners with older basebands who rely on the Ultrasn0w unlock there is good news.

The Ultrasn0w Fixer has been updated to support iOS 5.1.1. Ultrasn0w currently supports the following iPhone 4 and iPhone 4GS basebands:

• 01.59.00
• 04.26.08
• 05.11.07
• 05.13.01
• 05.12.01
• 06.15.00

The official version of Ultrasn0w is to be updated also but until then here is a quick way to ensure that you can unlock iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS on iOS 5.1.1. In order for this to work you must have a jailbroken iPhone on iOS 5.1.1 using custom firmware with old baseband preserved.

The first thing you have to do to unlock iPhone 4 on iOS 5.1.1 is to go to Cydia and browse to manage and select Sources. Next select Edit and Add to add the required repository. Type into the pop up and then press Add Source.

Once the repo has been added you need to open it in the source list which will display the Ultrasn0w Fixer 5.1.1 utility. Select the Fixer utility and tap the install button which you will find at the top right hand corner. The install will only take a few seconds. Once you have completed this the latest official version of Ultrasn0w which is 1.2.5 will need to be installed. Select Search in Cydia and type in Ultrasn0w and search the package. Once you find it, install it and you now have an unlocked iPhone on iOS 5.1.1.

This thing came up sometime back. While jailbroken iPhones actually let you play with the panorama feature which usually is hidden on the camera, there is a method which does not require you to jailbreak your iPhone or unlock it.

How to Take Panorama Picture on iPhone 4:
Okay, to do this, you’ll need:

An iPhone (duh! Quite obviously, eh?)
iTunes (latest is best)
iBackupBot (you can get it from here)

 Now, the process:

Step 1). Download and install iBackupBot
Step 2). Co

nnect your iPhone to your system and launch iTunes.
Step 3). Now, backup your iPhone via iTunes.
Step 4). Run iBackupBot. Find and open the iTunes backup file you just made, in iBackupBot. When the backup is loaded:
Step 5). Find this file: Library/Preferences/ and open it (on Mac, it opens. On Windows, you’ll need to use notepad)
Step 6). Now, you will have to add these lines of code somewhere in the middle of the file:


Step 7). Save the edited file.
Step 8). Now, right from the iBackupBot, restore the iPhone via the backup file.
Step 9). That’s it. Once you’ve followed the above steps, you will see the ‘Panorama’ option on the Camera’s Options. Use it!

While not many are aware that Apple has left the Panorama option hidden in the camera, many jailbreakers actually found it soon. However, in many cases, when the Panorama mode is used, the camera has been reported to get stuck.

With iPhone 4, and this non-jailbreak method, users have said that the camera on the Panorama mode works just fine and takes good pictures.

One of the new features introduced in iOS 5 was the ability to create keyboard shortcuts for common and often used phrases. This feature was embraced by many iOS users, and for some has become the most useful feature in Apple’s latest release of iOS. Many don’t know it, but OS X actually includes this same feature. In this video, I’ll show you how to find it and set it up.

Now in its third generation, it simply carries the name of “iPad”. No extra numbers, a better display, and a faster delivery system. But, has Apple really improved the new iPad features? You still get all the great features of graphics, photos, text, and video through the Internet. We took a look at the New iPad to see what the improvement was. Take a look…
It still holds same price as the last iPad, running at $499, but the internal components has been improved with a 9.7-inch screen and transfer of data over cell phone networks. These are some very big updates for the new iP

ad. It’s like going from a 2 inch screen to a 24 inch screen. Everything is in much sharper detail. However, it takes a toll on the battery’s life span.

The main feature of the New iPad was the battery life. You could spend more time surfing the net without charging the battery. This has always been an advantage over other tablets. Now it looks like they have equalized this feature to coincide with all the other tablets. This doesn’t hurt, they still have a long battery life, but you just have to charge more often than you did with the older iPads. You loose about 11 minutes on each battery charge, depending on how long you stay connected. That’s not much of a disadvantage unless you don’t have access to an electrical plug.
However, putting in a bigger battery gives the new iPad a little more weight at about 8% more than other iPads. It’s also about 7% thicker, so Apple’s claim for the thinnest and lightest tablet no longer applies. Although, it is still lighter and thinner than the iPad 2, it now weights a little more. Unless you’re a 10 pound weakling, it shouldn’t be a problem.
We tested the New iPad features of the connectivity through Verizon and AT&T. Playing videos constantly, the battery lasted 9 hours compared to 10.9 hours on the ipad2. Not that much of a difference, but the biggest difference was the connection speed.

Apple’s 4G LTE cellular technology is a big advantage over the iPad 2. Using Verizon‘s wireless we connected at downloads speeds of over 17 megabits and AT&T was over 12 megabits. That’s faster than a home cable network. This alone is more than worth the price of the new iPad features even if it does lessen the battery life.
The Total Improvement to The New iPad Features
Throughout the test we’ve run, the New iPad features show it has four times the pixel strength than other iPad. This is a vast improvement. You get the sharpest picture within the same amount of space. Apple claims it’s better than HDTV with a million more physical pixels than the former iPads. We like it!
The New iPad and its new features doesn’t mean you should run out ant buy the new one, even though it does have better coverage in Wi-Fi than every before. The 4G LTE cellular-data capability is an extra cost feature, but it does give you connection where you might not have had it before. Of course, there it the collection of over 200,000 iPad apps designed especially for the iPad. Older apps work just as good as the new apps do on the new iPad. The music, books, and magazines are the same, as well, just sharper in detail.
You will find the weight more noticeable, but you won’t even notice the thickness. You will, however, notice the ability to enjoy reading or video watching better with the bigger screen. If you are a 10 pound weakling, then you can still purchase the iPad 2 for about $399 with 16 gigabytes of hard drive space. It’s the first time Apple has ever offered a deal like this, but they must have a lot of iPad 2s in the warehouses just looking for a home.
One can choose the size of hard drive you want for the extra price for storage. They have 16, 32 or 64 GB capacities that can take the price up to $829 plus shipping. The extra cell phone coverage is also offered at a price through Verizon and AT&T. It’s a monthly fee, but if you already have a cell phone through them you can get a pretty good deal for the new iPad.
The New Display Requires A Word Or Two
Back in the olden days, about ten years ago, we had monitors the are barely acceptable to tablet users today. Even computer uses find it hard to believe they used the much smaller screens. The New iPad display screen is the sharpest available today. Although, you can’t see the pixel difference when looking the screen; you sure can see it when you play a video. Even the worse videos from YouTube look almost good on the new iPad. With features like a resolution of 2048 x 1536 you can compare it with your old iPad 2 and see a big difference.
Put them side by side and you’ll see Apple has really improved the display. And when you read text you’ll notice the sharper letters no longer merge together, so you can’t tell the difference between an n or r. The smallest font is still easier to read without blending all the words together.
Even though Apple has improved the display image they still haven’t done anything about sunlight washing out the screen. It still washes out when in direct sunlight. Oh, well, the faster than light speed connection makes up for that.
New iPad Features: The New Camera
The new iPad now has a 5 megapixel camera compared to the 1 megapixel for the older iPad 2. Of course, you still have a front and back camera, you can now take better picture indoor and out. They will never make it to a photographic hall of fame, but they will take a better shot of Aunt May opening her birthday present.
The New iPad features many of the old apps and benefits from iPad 2 such as Smartphone usage, emails, and touch typing. All in all, the new features are more than worth upgrading to the new iPad. It still holds in place as one of the great tablets of all time.

Today there have been reports on Twitter about iOS apps being rejected for using the now deprecated UDID variable.
By @kevindent: Confirmed with multiple sources now, Apple are rejecting and pulling titles that access the UDID, this includes large publishers.
By @joppedeluxe: Apple rejecting apps that use UDID. Sh*t just got real. I wonder what they will offer as replacement.
By @steipete: This sudden UDID rejection change will cause some headaches, especially for apps that just wanna push some small updates…

ou can drop right into your app.
MAC Address Based UUID Replacements
The first alternative is an open source library I’ve mentioned previously that generates a unique identifier that is unique to the user’s hardware by using the device’s MAC address by George Kitz that you can find on Github here.
I’ve seen some components out there for sale that can be used to generate UDID replacements – and they appear to do the exact same thing as the library by George Kitz and generate an ID using the app information, and MAC address.

Non-MAC Address  Based  UUID Replacements
There have been reports of some potential privacy issues that could arise from using the MAC address.
If you don’t really need an ID unique to  the user’s hardware, but just want an easy way to identify app users you can use CFUUIDCreate.  Ole Begemann has written up a nice writeup on doing just that.
By using the library or the guide to generate UDID replacement identifiers you should be able to avoid the time wasted because of rejection due to using the new deprecated UDID.

Everyone is so excited about the third generation iPad and this really is fast becoming the most anticipated iPad release to date. The huge Retina Display forms the centrepiece of what is going to be a very popular device. Apple has already seen a massive demand in pre-orders and it is safe to assume that once the doors open in the Apple Stores today there is going to be a huge rush as everyone tries to get their hands on this latest piece of Apple technology.

You can be sure that there will be people huddled up outside their nearest Apple Store in the hope that they ar

e near the top of the queue and will indeed get their hands on a new iPad today. During other iPad releases, Apple stores have closed throughout the day to get ready for an early evening release which can often cause a lot of problems for customers and staff and it seems that this time round it is going to be different.

According to a photo that was posted over at 9to5Mac, it seems that stores will be opening at 8AM rather than the usual evening event. This is going to make things so much easier for staff to get to all the customers and of course it means that those who join the queues won’t have to wait for as long. It is also thought that Apple Store employees are to receive an extra 10% in their pay packets this month which although not confirmed would be a lovely gesture by Apple and it will show the public that they really do look after their staff and appreciate how hard they work during times like this.

If you are planning on getting your hands on a new iPad today then be sure to come back and tell us in the comments how you got on.
