Packed inside the upcoming iOS 5.1 are 4 new wallpapers specifically designed for the iPad. The fine folks over at 9to5 Mac discovered these new wallpapers inside a copy of iOS 5.1 beta. Your choices are two ocean wallpapers, a grassy dew one, and a puddle with rain drops. Although these wallpapers have a 1024×1024 resolution (for both iPad landscape and portrait modes), 9to5 Mac has also sized them down to retina resolutions for the iPhone 4 and 4S. Continue reading →

If you’ve updated your iDevice to iOS 5 and did the smart thing of jailbreaking it, you may have noticed that iBooks instantly crashes after opening it.

Let’s get started on how to fix iBooks from crashing in jailbroken iOS 5. Continue reading →
The floodgates are open today as the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS 5, becomes available for iDevice owners. Users will be glad to see new features in iOS 5 like iMessage, Notification Center, Twitter integration, and more, but it seems Apple has left out one feature iPad users have been looking forward to since April: multi-touch gestures.
Indeed, multi-touch gestures will not be present in iOS 5 for first-generation iPad users, but lucky iPad 2 users will be getting the feature. Of course, we aren’t very happy about this, but we’ve figured out an easy way to enable multi-touch gestures on your first-generation iPad. Continue reading →
Every year Apple reveals its latest upgrade to its mobile operating system known as iOS. In June, Apple showed off its 5th revision of iOS at its Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco.

There’s another side of the web where the intellectuals gather at conferences around the world to present any bit of knowledge that is “worth sharing”. Of course I’m talking about TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) conferences where leaders from different industries speak to exclusive TED members and videos of the conferences are later posted on the TED website. I’ve gathered 5 of my favorite TED talks about technology that I thought would be worth sharing. Continue reading →

Apple released iOS 4.3 about a month ago with a slew of new features. Prior to releasing it to the public, developers were given the option to test a brand new feature on the iPad called Multitouch Gestures. Using four or five fingers at once, users can swipe to reveal the multitasking bar, the home screen, or switch between apps. Unfortunately, Apple never shipped this feature with the official release of iOS 4.3. The good news is that it’s really easy to enable and I’m here to show you how. Continue reading →
