For the first time Apple has updated their App Store application to version 1.1, and with the update an eagle eyed member over at MacRumors spotted the option to reserve a 16/32GB White iPhone 4 for $199/$299. Before you get too excited, he was not able to reserve a white iPhone, receiving the message 'Because of high demand, we are not currently taking iPhone reservations.'
Apple has since pulled the white iPhone from the application, but could this be an indication of an upcoming release? Keep your fingers crossed (and read on for more details).
Update: Apple is now saying that the white iPhone 4 has been delayed until spring next year. The first black iPhone 4's were released in June of this year, at first Apple said the White will be released in July of this year but they keep delaying it, saying that it has been harder to manufacture than they first expected.
According to a few well-known developer personalities (MuscleNerd and p0sixninja), both the greenpois0n and redsn0w jailbreaks will have their code open-sourced and released to the public. This is good news for any up-and-coming developers as it will be an excellent opportunity to learn from the more experienced jailbreak developer teams.
What does this mean for the average jailbreaker? Probably not much just yet, but the promise is that the future may bring even more and better jailbreaking tools (hopefully sooner after every release) as a result of this open collaboration.
It's hard to say when or if they will follow through on this commitment, for the time being we'll just have to wait and see.
A father and son team from Brooklyn, NY managed the incredible feat of sending a weather balloon and HD video camera into the edges of space -- tracking the journey using an iPhone with a GPS program and an HD video camera.
The craft was constructed from restaurant takeout containers and used chemical hand warmers to keep the iPhone and camera electronics warm at temperatures as low as negative 60 degrees.
It would be difficult to find an iPhone that has taken a more incredible journey.

There have been reports that jailbreaking your iOS 4.1 device with one of the latest jailbreaks (Greenpois0n, Limera1n, or PwnageTool) can result in breaking FaceTime and getting no cellular data connection. Not exactly what we signed up for when we decided to jailbreak.
Thankfully, there is already a fix out that seems to work well for most users. Apparently the issue has to do with some low-level SMS communication and a reset of the phone's carrier bundle, and both of these thigns can be fixed with a quick download from Cydia and a few tweaks to the phone settings.
Full instructions for the fix can be found here.
The iphone dev team just posted an updated version of their PwnageTool that can jailbreak a number of devices running on 4.1, including the new AppleTV. It uses a combination of the Limera1n jailbreak, the original pwnage2 exploit, as well as an exploit recently found by Comex.
This new tool jailbreaks any of the following devices running on 4.1 firmware:
- AppleTV 2g
- iPad (firmware 3.2.2)
- iPod Touch 3G & 4G
- iPhone 3G, 3GS, and 4

Welcome to the newly launched iPhone-Developers.com!
This site was born from the much more popular xda-developers forum, where several iphone-weilding members petitioned the owners for creation of an iPhone forum. After much debate, it was agreed that having a seperate iPhone website would allow the discussion of jailbreaking and other open development on the iPhone platform, while at the same time helping to keep xda focused on Android and Windows mobile devices.
