Apple to update iMac in April?

In February we saw an update of the MacBook Pro line, in March we saw the release of the iPad 2, so now the rumors are circling the net, will Apple release an updated version of the iMac in April?

Apple’s product release cycle can seem mysterious if you’re new to the fold, but old hands know roughly when to expect the next refresh of each of Apple’s product lines. According to the MacRumors’ Buyer’s Guide a new iMac should be just around the corner.

It will be interesting to see if Apple adds Intel’s new Sandy Bridge processors in this year’s Macs, as well as improved resolutions in the 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMacs, We would also like to see if Apple will add the ThunderBolt port to the iMacs.

It will be interesting to see, we will of course keep you up to date!

Apple releases iOS 4.3.1

If you have tried to sync your iDevice within the past few hours, then you will have noticed that your iTunes will tell you that there is an iOS update available for it.

The latest firmware offers the following improvements and fixes:

  • Fixes an occasional graphics glitch on iPod touch (4th generation)
  • Resolves bugs related to activating and connecting to some cellular networks
  • Fixes image flicker when using Apple Digital AV Adapter with some TVs
  • Resolves an issue authenticating with some enterprise web services

The update supports: iPhone 4 (GSM model only), iPhone 3GS, iPad, iPad 2, and iPod touch (3rd and 4th generation). The update isn’t available of Verizon iPhone 4 users who remain on iOS 4.2.6.

There isn’t any mention of a fix for battery woes encountered by users across practically all iOS devices, but I hope that it addresses that problem as well.

Information about security fixes in this update can be found in this Apple knowledge base document.

You can get the update either through iTunes or from the direct links below:
