Briefly: Official iPhone 5S case rumor, eXtremeDB for iOS

updated 12:30 pm EDT, Tue September 10, 2013

Possible iPhone 5S case leaks ahead of keynote

Ahead of today's Apple keynote, HDBlog.it has posted a pair of pictures that claim to depict the packaging for an official Apple iPhone 5S case. Text on the paper insert suggests that the case will be made from aniline leather, the same material used in the Smart Covers for the iPad and iPad mini. The insert also indicates that the case will fit both the iPhone 5 and 5S. While it wouldn't be unprecedented to see Apple release its own iPhone case, the size of the packaging seems odd given Apple's usual standard for minimal packaging.

eXtremeDB now available for use in iOS apps

McObject has announced the release of an iOS port of its eXtremeDB database system. eXtremeDB uses a C/C++ API and navigational interface meaning that functions will work on the database one record at a time. Mobile location-based apps can also take advantage of eXtremeDB's support for R-tree, a specialized database index created to handle geospatial data. A free evaluation version of the database system can be downloaded from McObjects website.
