Just in time for the iPhoneDevCamp this weekend (where Web developers will gather for a no-holds-barred effort to develop iPhone apps), Apple has released a Web development guide for the iPhone. The guide provides useful hints about the iPhone's abilities, how to integrate your app with the iPhone's phone, mail, and maps, the kinds of media types that the Safari browser supports, and more. Of course, there's also a link to the Safari for Windows beta, plus additional information about the Safari Webkit. If you're a potential iPhone developer, the guide is worth checking out. As … Read more

Immediately after we posted our Apple iPhone review, Senior Editor Donald Bell and I handed our iPhone off to CNET Labs for battery drain tests. And now we can report that our first results are in. Just to remind you, the iPhone has a rated battery life of 8 hours talk time, 24 hours of music playback, 7 hours of video playback, and 6 hours of Internet use.
Talk time: When we tested the iPhone with the Wi-Fi function turned off, we got about 7 hours, 20 minutes of talk time. When we tested it with the Wi-Fi activated, we … Read more
Far be it from Shure to stand idly by while others profit from the iPhone's recessed headphone jack. Early last week, the successful earphone manufacturer announced a new product called the Music Phone Adapter (MPA). As the name suggests, this headphone add-on is designed to work with music-playing cell phones. It offers a built-in microphone (and shirt clip) for calls while allowing a connection with stereo earphones for tunes. Of course, the MPA's slender headphone plug casing belies its true companion--the iPhone.
I got my hands on a prototype of the MPA and can attest that it fits … Read more
Replacing the battery on an iPhone will be an expensive and nerve-wracking experience.
Apple revealed the details behind its iPhone battery replacement program this week. It's basically the same deal as with the iPod, in that you have to return the unit to Apple for battery replacement, but it's a little more expensive. The service costs $79 plus $6.95 for shipping to replace the battery on an out-of-warranty iPhone, and Apple says it will take three business days.
The service is also similar to the iPod in that all data is cleared from the iPhone during the … Read more

Because the Macalope did a little research after reading this post on Daring Fireball and it looks like someone's trying to move in on your turf.
"It's a product of mythical proportions," says [Roger] Entner, senior vice president of IAG Research. "They're not saying the iPhone will cure cancer and bring world peace, but that it will do everything else. It's impossible to live up to these expectations."
Roger Entner, senior vice president-communications sector at IAG Research, called the … Read more
Some multimillionaire Major League Baseball players needed special connections to get their hands on one of Apple's iPhones this past weekend.
ESPN.com's Peter Gammons (paid subscription required) found two Detroit Tigers, Justin Verlander and Curtis Granderson, who used their inside connections at Apple retail stores to score an iPhone. The Detroit players, in the middle of a tough series against the Minnesota Twins during iPhone weekend, texted some buddies at Apple stores to inquire about iPhone availablility and have a few set aside.
It was a little easier for the San Francisco Giants' Brad Hennessey, who works … Read more
"Don't blame the iPhone," that's what AT&T representatives said about the wireless data outage on AT&T's network Monday.
iPhone users were among many smart phone subscribers complaining of a noticeably slow AT&T data network on Monday, but a spokesman for the company said the issue had nothing to do with the onslaught of people activating their iPhones.
Voice service and text messaging was not impacted. But some customers using AT&T's 2.5G and 3G wireless networks complained that they could not get any data service on … Read more
Tech's latest bundle of joy, the Apple iPhone, has been brought into the gadget world with plenty of clip-on cases and headphone adapters that eager users can show off as soon as they rip the iPhone out of its sleek, black cardboard box.
However, there's still much to anticipate in the way of compatible third-party peripherals like those that have been bestowed upon the iPod, iPhone's suddenly-neglected cousin. Take the iPod shoulder bag and famous iCarta iPod toilet paper holder, for example. Yet it's only a matter of time until our favorite phone accessory manufacturers cook up products for the newest celebrity gadget. Here are some possibilities:
1. Branded iPhone cleaning kit When spit and a t-shirt corner aren't enough.
2. Battery-operated stylus Generates enough heat to activate the touch screen, improving typing efficiency for the square-fingered and long-nailed iPhoner users among us. Also relieves repetitive stress for marathon typers.… Read more
