Apple iPhone news is heating up as an early jailbreak for iPhone OS 4.0 is released, and purported images of the back casing for the next iteration of the Apple iPhone 3GS handset leak online.
The iPhone jailbreak masters at the iPhone Dev Team have released a beta version of the redsn0w jailbreak for iPhone OS 4.0, version 0.9.5, so that developers of applications for jailbroken iPhones can fix or improve their apps before Apple releases iPhone OS 4.0 later this year. Jailbroken iPhones have been around almost as long as the iPhone, but with each new iteration of the iPhone operating system hackers have become faster at developing exploits for jailbreak users.
Meanwhile, Apple rumor blog MacRumors recently posted images of what appears to be the rear shell of a new iPhone model.
MacRumors received several images of a rear shell for a purported new iPhone device. The images reveal nothing new about the iPhone's overall design as the shell's cutouts look exactly the same as current iPhoniphonePhoto from MacRumorse models with spaces for a rear-facing camera, volume control, on/off ringer switch, speaker, mic, and connector port.
