During the last few months there has been much talk about the next Apple’s device, especially about its retina display. And a number of pictures of displays said to be for the iPad 3 have appeared from different sources.
Such parts leaks are normal with the device’s predicted release early next month. While reports have stated that these displays are high-resolution “Retina” displays, there’s been no real proof of these statements up to now.
One of the popular websites has got hold of one of the iPad 3 retina display and look at it under a microscope in order to see whether it is really an ultra-high resolution Retina display.
As expected, physically, the supposed iPad 3 retina display is exactly the same size as the existing iPad 1 and iPad 2 display at 9.7″ in diagonal, and looks very much the same to the naked eye.
But, when they compared the iPad 3 retina display to one from an iPad 2 under a microscope, the real difference in resolutions gets readily clear, with the iPad 3 display’s pixels appearing to be one-quarter the size of those found on the iPad 2.
Due to the fact that we just had a raw iPad 3 display without any method to power it, taking high quality pictures of the pixels was really difficult. Nevertheless, even with the somewhat poor lighting, it is simple to make out the pixels on each display (made up of green, red and blue elements).
They highlighted a cluster of 4 pixels (2×2) from the iPad 2 in order to compare it to the same area on the iPad 3. On the iPad 3, the same cluster was occupied by 16 pixels (4×4) – just twice the resolution in each direction.
Certainly, with the Retina display now a cert, attention will turn to additional features – such as the camera – which will probably be improved to go with the new display. Rumours and leaks have suggested either the iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S camera will be used, but even if this does not become the case, one would believe the Apple will give its tablet users a true reason to frequent the numerous image social networks floating around.
The release of iPad 3 with retina display is expected on March 7th – just one week time, and I’m sure you can’t wait for the grand unveiling!
According to the most asked questions on Apple’s website is wlll the Apple Voice Assistant support Japanese and Russian languages in iOS 5.0.1. Here is the definition of Siri:
Siri – iPhone 4S’ personal assistant feature can currently understand and speak in English (United States, United Kingdom, Australia), French (France), German (Germany).
However, folks around the world noticed that when you ask Siri what languages it supports. It claims it also knows Japanese and advises you to change the language it is using by going to Siri Settings. But as you can see in the screen shot below, Japanese is not available as an option in Siri settings.
As you might know, couple of months ago the famous hacker MuscleNerd, who is a member of iPhone Dev Team wrote in his Twitter, that the latest unlock for iPhone 4 baseband 1.0.11, 1.0.13, 1.0.14 using NCK unlock exploit will not start before the iOS 4.3 will be released.
There was the news that TinyUmbrella had been updated. And now it can support iPhone 4 on iOS 4. But first you should save your SHSH Blobs files. Why? Because next week we will see a new firmware update. But if you have your SHSH blobs on file then you need downgrade baseband 04.11.08 on iOS 4.0.1 to iOS 4. SHSH Blob is a signature file which is verified against Apple Server to verify the the iPhone is running the latest version of iOS.
Some uplifting news for all those iPhone unlockers who felt completely let down from yesterday’s tweets from MuscleNerd suggesting there could be no unlock in the coming days from the Dev Team. A new method to unlock iPhone 4 – the NCK unlock has been discovered to be only of 40 Bits or 5 digits which makes it theoretically possible to crack it using brute force attack. While the Dev-Team are back to square one again, they are going to try a new theoretical unlocking method that was attempted by Geohot three years ago.
The Sherif Hashim’s exploit which he handed over to MuscleNerd for iPhone 4 unlock is SIM dependent but it do gives enough information which can help hackers to crack the unique NCK (Network Control Key) from the Seczone. NCK is a cryptographic key which is used by phone to access required cellular network and Seczone is the area of baseband where NCK is stored.
There is good news for iPhone 4 users, unlocking tool Gevey Sim is on the finish. So, if you have updated your gadget to iOS 5 then you have to update iPhone 4 baseband 04.11.08 and enjoy it. We took that information from Facebook notice from AppleNBerry who was the developer of Gevey Sim unlocking tool for iPhone. That what they wrote:

The benefits of using this beta version of MobileSubstrate, however, is that it will get rid of all the daemon patching which in turn means you will be able to use Notification Center plugins and also Mobile Safari (with patching) upon restarting into a SemiTethered state. Overall you will additionally notice the SemiTether 0.9.1 Cydia package is much more stable than in previous versions.

Untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 is ready. It was presented by famous French hacker Pod2G. He demonstrated this untethered jailbreak in action on his iPod Touch running iOS 5. Later this evening Pod2G has setup a new blog dedicated to his iOS 5 untethered Jailbreak called pod2g-iOS. On Pod2G’s new blog you can find the latest information and updates on this upcoming Untethered Jailbreak.
The first blog post on Pod2G’s blog gives some more information on the status of his Untethered Jailbreak:
The exploit is user-land, rely on a user ROP payload and a kernel write anywhere exploit.
I can’t give much details right now, but here are the next steps :
upgrade the iPod 3G to iOS 5.0.1 do the same on iPhone 4 / iOS 5.0.1 then iPad 1 & iPod 4G
At every step, the exploit code needs certainly to be reworked, but I really don’t know right now.
Next, I’ll return to the research for iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. I don’t know if I gonna release first for other devices or not. I’ve got to think about it.
As you see it is really easy jailbreak which is good for all Apple devices on iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 and can be perform untethered.
