The Apple want to stop unlocking iPhones all over the world, but frankly i am not sure why. Well they need to protect AT&T, O2, Orange and T-Mobile because they share revenue with them, but Apple have a great benefit from this unlocking software, it sell iPhones ! Apple released the patch with new updates. This patch will lock your iPhone if it was unlocked, so we are back on the beginning of the story.

iPhone activation failed

Apple has discovered that many of the unauthorized iPhone unlocking programs available on the Internet cause irreparable damage to the iPhone’s software, which will likely result in the modified iPhone becoming permanently inoperable when a future Apple-supplied iPhone software update is installed. Apple plans to release the next iPhone software update, containing many new features including the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store later this week. Apple strongly discourages users from installing unauthorized unlocking programs on their iPhones. Users who make unauthorized modifications to the software on their iPhone violate their iPhone software license agreement and void their warranty. The permanent inability to use an iPhone due to installing unlocking software is not covered under the iPhone’s warranty.

They released iPhone v1.1.1 patch witch includes:

  • iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store
  • Louder speakerphone and receiver volume
  • Home Button double-click shortcut to phone favorites or music controls
  • Space bar double-tap shortcut to intelligently insert period and space
  • Mail attachments are viewable in portrait and landscape
  • Stocks and cities in Stocks and Weather can be re-ordered
  • Apple Bluetooth Headset battery status in the Status Bar
  • Support for TV Out
  • Preference to turn off EDGE/GPRS when roaming internationally
  • New Passcode lock time intervals
  • Adjustable alert volume

If you have unlocked iPhone this patch will lock it again. All third party apps are blocked again. This means unlocking software like anySim and iPhone Sim Free are useless now. We need to wait until new unlocking software show up.

You can make a choice: Your iphone functionality or iTunes music store ? What do you say ?
