iOS 4.2.10 has just been released by Apple for CDMA based iPhone 4 running on the Verizon network. According to the official change log, this minor update fixes a security vulnerability with certificate validation in iOS.
Earlier rumors suggested that iPhone 5 will actually come with a global support which means it will have both GSM and CDMA radios. The rumor had its basis in the Qualcomm Gobi cellular/data chipset which was found included in the Verizon iPhone 4 when it was taken to pieces.
In case you are still skeptic about it, the Verizon iPhone is very real, and it is coming on 10th February 2011. Video after the break.
The Wall Street Journal has just weighed in to confirm that the Verizon event, which is happening on 11th January is indeed going to be for the long-awaited Verizon iPhone 4.
Rumors for a CDMA-based Verizon iPhone for 2011 are getting stronger and stronger by the day. We’ve previously seen claims from Bloomberg, Wall Street Journal, TechCrunch and today, Wall Street Journal has gone ahead and called it a settled deal.
This year is getting fired up with a lot of rumors and people are expecting a bunch of new gadgets from Apple. Digitimes is now reporting that Apple is going to launch new Apple TV with iOS, iPads and a CDMA iPhone on Verizon early next year.
CDMA version of iPhone on Verizon has been rumored for years, so much that probably now no one believes it anymore, unless of course Steve announces it in one of those events. Now if the latest round of rumors from TechCrunch are to be believed, we could very well see the CDMA version of iPhone on Verizon as early as January 2011.
