iOS Devices Stories September 29, 2010

Although Steve Jobs told a Swedish DJ that internet tethering (iPhone’s connection used for a WiFi iPad, in this case) wouldn’t be coming to the iPad, beta 2 of iOS 4.2 for iPad tells a different story. Hidden within the APN network settings on the iPad 3G  is a new section dedicated to internet tethering. This tethering appears to be the type of tethering iPhones currently use versus tethering the iPhone’s internet to an iPad.

This section asks for the usual username and password to setup internet tethering, and this is similar to what the iPhone had before tethering got an official iOS interface. Because of this, we believe that internet tethering is in the iPad’s future and may even launch with iOS 4.2 in November.

One important thing to note is that we could not replicate this new settings pane on an iPad 3G running on AT&T’s network. This screenshot is from an iPad 3G running on 3’s network in Europe.

Thanks, Anton!

Chase has been doing this for months and other banks have been doing it for years but Paypal will soon accept checks via iPhone (and iPod touch?) camera.

Chambers said that this new app will allow you to take a picture of the front and back of a check with your iPhone camera, and it will be added to your PayPal balance.

The Square iPhone app is taking a bigger step by eliminating the check altogether but you’ll need to purchase a little piece of hardware for that.  Paypal only needs your iPhone camera.

This is helping grease the wheels of the economy people!

Updated Paypal app will be here in the next few days. expand full story
