A Byte of Apple is back after an almost Steve-Jobs-esque hiatus (we kid, really!), a time where Apple kept us more than busy with a slew of announcements and new products that threaten our already fragile bank balances!
The iOS 4.0.1 is being rolled out to iPhone 4 owners worldwide. The update is available via iTunes and is a whopping 579 MB. We are attempting to install the update right now. Will update once it’s complete. And this update is not just for iPhone 4 but also for iPhone 3G and 3GS . Anyone updated their iPhone 3G, 3GS or 4 to iOS 4.0.1 ?
A new week brings with it our dose of Apple flavored news, but this is no ordinary week. It’s not every week that a celebrity device chances its way across to our hands, and this week saw both Varun and me having a go at the iPhone 4, fresh off the boat courtesy returning friends from the UK.
Good news for all iPhone / iPod users who are addicted to Facebook. One Facebook is one of the best apps for the iPhone platform but sadly it did not support multitasking or fast app-switching which came in iPhone OS 4 / iOS 4. Thanks to the latest update (v3.1.4) which is compatible with iOS 4.0.You can now switch between Facebook and Twitter apps or Email without having to start all-over again. Head to the app store now !

And how it hit! Apple’s reported first three days sales of 1.7 million iPhone 4 models, besting launch records set by previous iPhone models, with the iPhone 3G and 3GS selling in the region of 1 million in the first weekend after launch. Almost makes the other news from last week – 3 million iPads sold in 80 days – pale in comparison, doesn’t it?

You either love ’em or you hate ’em, but you simply cannot ignore them. Apple is one of those brands that polarizes opinions – the products undoubtedly cost much more than they should, are arguably not as spec-rich as the competition, but who else makes computer systems and personal entertainment devices that look so damn stylish, yet compact, at the same time?
