With the iPad 2 out and in short supply, the rumor mill’s attention is now shifting to what we could expect to see in the new iPhone and iOS 5, the next iteration of Apple’s mobile OS. And while the new iPhone 5 is set to arrive some time this summer, a TechCrunch report suggests exciting developments for iOS are coming this fall too.
“Two solid sources” told TechCrunch that Apple is likely to break its pattern of unveiling the latest features for iOS, which is set to move from a 4.X increment to version 5. This would mean that instead of getting a brand-new iPhone 5 this summer, along with a refreshed OS, “a major revamp” of iOS would be introduced separately later in the autumn (read delayed), possibly in September.

Arxan Technologies®, a leading provider of software security solutions that protect applications from attack in distributed or un-trusted environments, recently announced the availability of EnsureIT for Apple iOS, the newest addition to its multi-platform suite of application hardening solutions, to harden Apple® iOS for ARM mobile applications against reverse-engineering or tampering for unauthorized access, piracy and compromise.
iOS, Apple’s mobile operating system was developed originally for the iPhone®, and has since been used on the iPod touch®, iPad® and Apple TV®, as well. Given the popularity of these Apple computing platforms and application downloads for Apple devices now numbering in the billions, content developers consider Apple iOS support a must for their mobile and connected home applications development. As of Oct. 20, 2010, Apple’s App Store contained more than 300,000 iOS applications which have collectively been downloaded more than 7 billion times.
The TasteTimer series of apps now require a minimum OS of iOS 4. Version 2 of the TasteTimer series take advantage of a new feature in iOS 4 called Local Notifications. The user will now hear and see an alert when the timer has finished, even if TasteTimer is no longer running. This was not possible with earlier versions of the iPhone OS.
This new feature will work on any iPhone or iPod touch that uses iOS 4, including the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 2nd generation (late 2008), and iPod touch 3rd generation (late 2009). Local Notifications are not really a multitasking feature, so TasteTimer will not use battery or memory resources while in the background.
