Vietnamese site reveals White iPhone with new multitasking UI

iOS 4?Now that the white iPhone is just around the corner, it figures that there are fresh revelations concerning the device. A new video has popped up on Vietnamese site Tinhte.vn showing off a white iPhone – we know, this fails to be exciting anymore. But here’s the catch: The video claims the phone is the iPhone 5 and it features a new multitasking UI that allows users to switch applications in an upgraded format. Users are shown the screen in use from each open app in this new mode, and you can either tap to fully open an app of your choice, or hold down to bring up the shut down “x” option.

While we can plainly see that the phone is working with an updated multitasking function and the addition of a “Search iPhone” option, we doubt it’s actually the iPhone 5. It’s more likely that it’s the iPhone 4 being used to demo iOS 4. You can see in the video the Touch Fighter app, which Apple has used before to introduce new software features.

Various fan blogs and publications claim that this site has a reputation for leaking accurate Apple news, so it’s quite possible we’re getting an early look at iOS 4 (another video on the site even says this first one is demonstrating a prototype version, 8A216 of iOS 4). Just for some background, 9to5Mac points out that Tinhte.vn was the first to reveal the iPhone 4 photos, the MacBook refresh, and the iPod touch with camera. Check out the videos below for yourself.

Apple just released the iOS 18 public beta; here’s how to download it

If you don’t have an Apple Developer Account and have been eager to try out iOS 18 on your iPhone, rejoice! Apple has finally released the first public beta for iOS 18. The public betas are typically a bit more stable than the developer betas, which is a reason why some people hold off until the public beta.

Apple released the first developer beta of iOS 18 right after the WWDC 2024 keynote on June 10. Since then, three developer betas have come out, and Apple tends to release about three developer betas before the public version a week later. Apple also said that the public beta would arrive sometime in July, and that time has come.

Apple just released an updated build for its third iOS 18 beta to developers. This comes on the heels of widespread anticipation for the first public beta, which did not come to fruition today. But if this is any indication, we are getting very close to the public beta in the coming days.

Apple released the first developer build of iOS 18 right after its WWDC 2024 keynote on June 10, 2024. A week ago, Apple dropped the third developer beta for iOS 18, which had build number 22A5307f. Typically, Apple releases the public betas a week after the third beta, at least according to the previous year’s records.
