I’m sure most of you have already heard about the fact that Apple has released their App Store Guidelines (especially since I know you all watched episode 19 of i101!) but, just in case you haven’t I thought I would mention on AiS too. Yesterday, Apple released their App Store Guidlines allowing developers to have a better understanding of how apps are accepted and rejected from the App Store. Below is a list of some of the main guidelines. The entire document contains 113 guidelines each of which are broken down and specifically explained. Read more
Apple has released a new iPad ad. The commercial is titled ‘iPad is Musical’. It highlights nine aspects of the iPad giving each a title; medical, live, musical, work, play, memories, social, magazines, and historic. Check it out below.
It seems that iOS 4.1 has indeed been released today as speculated. Below is the change log for the new iOS. Some of the major features of the firmware include; Game Center, HDR Photography, iTunes TV show rentals and a bug fix for the iPhone 4 proximity sensor (which we know many will appreciate… including Doug’s grandpa!).
To deal with the antenna program, Apple announced they would give away free bumpers. They also stated they could not keep up with the demand and would also offer other cases for free. If you already have a bumper and paid with a credit card you will get an automatic refund. If you paid cash you can take your receipt to the store and get your money back. If you purchased from AT&T you can fill out a refund request. If you haven’t done anything yet you can install an app from the App Store to pick your case.

The app is called iPhone 4 Case Program. There is a direct link above or you can just search “iPhone case” in the app store. Once installed just follow the steps to your new case:
Here are the choice of bumpers that are available the the release of the app:
Today, Apple released four new iPhone 4 ads; Meet Her, Haircut, Smile and Big News. All four commercials demonstrate the FaceTime feature of the iPhone 4. Personally, I’m not a huge fan… check them out and let us know what you think.
Ok, I’m sorry, but this guy totally cracks me up. With just a few days until I have baby #3 (yes, it is currently nameless… we are working on that!)… I could definitely use a good laugh and this video did the trick! Not only is the guy just funny but, I love what he says at the end of the video. I also think it’s hillarious that Apple opened their press conference today with this video. I’m sure many of you have already seen it but if you haven’t… totally worth checking out (video below).
Today Apple announced that they would provide a free iPhone case to all iPhone owners to temporarily resolve the antenna problems. Anyone who has purchased a bumper case from Apple will receive a refund. If you haven’t gotten one yet, you’ll get one for free. Apple will also be providing a few cases from other manufactures since they will not be able keep up with the demand for Apple’s bumpers. We’re not sure yet what will happen if you bought your iPhone case from someone like AT&T. We also aren’t sure if the refund will be cash or in store credit at the Apple Store like they did with the 1st Gen iPhone after lowering the price $200 and refunding $100 in store credit. Apple will have more details on how to get your free case or refund within the next week.
Apple has released iBooks for the iPhone. You must have iOS 4 in order the install iBooks on your device. It comes with all the features of the iPad version. Speaking of the iPad version, there was an update to it today also. Some were features like the ability to add notes to your bookmarks and bookmark syncing across devices. Here is a list of the iBooks updates.
iBooks for the iPad:
I got an official iPad case from Apple for Father’s Day yesterday. Unfortunately, it won’t be here for 2-4 weeks because they are back ordered. I’ve heard mixed reviews on the case but I thought I would try it out for myself or I would never know how it works for me. I’ve also been looking around at other cases. I like a lot of things about the case from Apple from what I’ve seen, but I would like a case that doesn’t have a flap that I have to open every time I want to use my iPad. On the other hand, I want to protect it, both front and back, from nicks and scratches. Right now I use no case and carry my iPad in this messenger bag from Aéropostale:
Mine’s a light tan, but you get the point. I like having a bag for it because I can keep a charger, headphones, external batteries for my iPhone, and other accessories. I still want a case for my iPad, mostly for two things: grip and scratch protection front and back. I really do not want a film screen protector. I like directly interfacing with the glass. The Apple case would protect the case and give it grip but I just don’t know if I like the flap being in the way while I’m using it. So, yesterday, I was talking with a friend about cases and he was saying how he only uses Otterbox. I thought how sweet that would be to have an Otterbox case for the iPad. Read more
Apple has finally posted the video of yesterday’s WWDC Keynote. The video is available in low, medium and high quality and is around a hour and 52 minutes long. It is not available in iTunes quite yet but I’m sure it will be soon. You can find the video on Apple’s website.
