IOS7 Announcement at WWDC

Recommended Posts

Some pretty nice changes to iOS.  

 

  • Airdrop looks pretty useful for sharing photos with nearby friends.  
  • I like the improved integration between Maps and Calendar and being able to add travel time quickly to an event.
  • The app drawer from dragging from the bottom.  About freaking time!  I missed being able to quickly turn on/off wifi/bt from my Android days.
  • iTunes Radio looks like a Pandora/Spotify killer.  Plus there are zero ads if you are a iTunes Match subscriber.

Looking forward to the Fall.  Glad it supports  iPhone 4 and up and iPad 2 and up.

I must say iOS 7 is looking pretty nice, but I won't rule out switching back to Android until I can thoroughly test drive it.

Huh? Who's copying who now?

 

Control Center: Copy of Android's quicksettings

Notification Center: looking rather Jelly-bean like with the expanded notifications

Multitasking: MUCH more Android-like with full-screen previews

iTunes Radio: right on the heels of Google Play Music All Access...

Airdrop: Galaxy S3's Allshare

 

It definitely looks like a nice update, with a very sleek interface - but I don't think Android is going to be copying much from it. Frankly, I figured we could leave the OS fights out of this, but...

Definitely agreed, not to mention the live Weather is a copy of HTC's weather interface and the apps opening from where you tap is also a straight port from Android JB. Apple hasn't fooled anyone with this one.

Fixed it for you. This kinda seems like a stop gap to prevent more defectors. Nothing too new here.

Let's not forget that Android has taken a lot from the iPhone as well. It goes both ways.

Not really, it's virtually the same Yahoo weather app that's in the App Store, but with some minor differences. Not a surprise considering the iPhone's weather app has always been powered by Yahoo.

I'm not too mad at the copying. Its bound to happen. I'll be more mad at the macheads that think this is groundbreaking or new. New for you I guess. And I was hoping for something really new that would keep android on its toes and make them rethink some things. Google is sitting there like "that's it? Cool"

You can actually get your UDID register through me for $5. There is a post in General with more details.

The real question is can it map on sensorly yet? :)

I'll think about it. I may be getting back into it for free in January if my school is set up with Apple. I don't want to give up my jailbreak very easily.

 

Edit: Schools don't get access to anything except the current released SDK. I think I'll get my own account the first of next year.

We will find out from Sensorly soon enough. With over 1500 new API's, there's hopefully one for Sensorly to have access to what we iPhone users want.

Really hope the Sensorly folks had someone there at WWDC to talk to Apple about it.

I wouldn't be too shocked if the Sensorly API's opened up in due time. Apple has less interest in protecting the carriers than some on here tend to think.

There are new APIs in core telephony that support reading the radio type, signal strength, and cell ID directly so no more hacks.

 

Also looks like they integrated cross-app audio directly so digital instrument apps can pipe audio to a mixing app.

 

The multitasking enhancements are smart... You have to register for what you want (periodic background time to download updates vs wake the app up when a push notification is received), but the OS waits for good signal strength or when the user wakes the device to do something else, then it takes advantage of the really strong signal or the user waking the device to also do the background updates. The OS also learns which apps you use frequently and gives them priority, so an app you haven't used in six months won't ever have its background updates scheduled (presumably).

 

Plenty more but NDA so I can't comment. I actually sell apps on the App Store so I'd like to keep my developer account in good standing.

 

 

P.S. Apple has now paid out 3X as much money to developers as all others (Google, MS, etc) combined. They also said over 90% of all iOS devices are running iOS 6, compared to the laughable situation on Android.

Google is closing that gap though. They are taking back Android by moving the core apps to the Play Store and opting for only announcing major updates. This lowers fragmentation in the OS and that is why we see the percentage of phones running JB go up and the number of phones on GB go down.

Was reading afar until I saw this comment...  anyone who continues to bring up the fragmentation comment today is an absolute idiot as they have no idea what they are talking about.  They should pull their heads out of the sand/apple sauce as this hasn't been the case for a long time.

 

I believe the laughable situation is the druthers that Iphone brings with their closed loop Nazi like attitude of an app store.  Too late too little, most of smartened up and left due to many reasons like 2 yr old tech and features being groundbreaking.

what do you guys think about the facetime voice only call option?

not that it may be disruptive for the carriers but some frugal parents may hold on off on getting lil johnny on their plan when they can do it this way.

I thought it was only via wifi. Voice only facetime sounds funny.

This.  And then some.

 

Apple makes a living off forcing you to upgrade.  Android has such a fragmentation because really, unless you are a power user, the reason to upgrade is minimal.  Android doesnt pull half the crap iOS does with what device can do what.  Look at Siri, the other "groundbreaking" feature that has been a complete bust.  You couldnt use it on the ipad 1 or 2.  Why?  Because Apple said so.  But oh hey, great news!!! New ipad coming out same day as Siri that can!! Lucky you!!  Only 500 bucks and its yours!!  Dont pay any attention to the fact that the hardware is identical, or, could of been in the ipad you are replacing!!

 

Then the app store.  Dont even get me started.

 

Apple has stopped innovating and has started chasing.  Its not hard to figure that out, when you look at iOS7, it exemplifies it.  iOS7 is Android Jellybean with a 2005 Palm Treo color scheme.  Nuff said.

      iPhone XS and XS Max are Apple's newest flagship phones, and the successors to Apple's 2017 iPhone X. They have the new A12 Bionic chip, improved cameras and faster FaceID, and come in a beautiful Gold Stainless Steel finish in addition to the Silver & Space Gray options. They are available in the same 5.8" Super Retina display as with the X, and the bigger 6.5" Super Retina. They are available in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB configurations.
      Apple added Dual SIM technology to the 2018 iPhone's, with one physical SIM, and one eSIM. (eSIM feature not currently supported by Sprint, but is said to be coming later). These phones also feature IP68 water-resistance (iPhone X was IP67) which gives you protection in water for up to 30 minutes in up to 2m of water.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Thursday, January 26, 2012 - 12:01 AM MST
       
      Many of us enjoy the freedom that rooting or jailbreaking our phones gives. Adding custom ROMs, removing “bloatware” or Carrier IQ, and adding additional controls are just the start. We knowingly take the risk that that we may turn our phone into a brick, and our warranty will likely not cover repair or replacement. But will we knowingly commit a criminal act to unlock our phones?
      Apple has claimed that jailbreaking the iPhone was in conflict with copyright laws. Given the amount of time they spent locking down iOS, it’s no surprise they oppose it. In July 2010, the U.S. Copyright Office eventually decided that jailbreaking and rooting was not a violation of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA), as long as it was not done with the intent of circumventing copyright. However, this decision was not permanent. If it is allowed to expire next month, jailbreaking and rooting could be considered breach of the DMCA.
      Development websites like XDA started out with the public perception that they were underground gatherings of hackers and pirates. Since the U.S. Copyright Office published the finding that jailbreaking and rooting was not illegal, those development websites have become widely popular and have largely changed the public's perception. Even Steve Kondik, aka “Cyanogen”, creator of the widely popular Android ROM CyanogenMod was hired by Samsung.
      Due to the liberties that millions of us enjoy about to be removed due to the sunseting DCMA, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has begun a campaign to keep our phones free. They are undertaking a campaign to convince the U.S. Copyright Office that we should have the right to unlock not only our smartphones, but our tablets and video game consoles. They have a petition that they will send to the U.S. Copyright Office, and they are asking for Concrete examples of legal uses of jailbreaking that “will help show the Copyright Office why they should renew and expand the exemptions for jailbreaking.”

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Friday, February 3, 2012 - 2:00 PM MST
       
      The iPhone is something many people see as a status symbol. Many who have never owned one, long for their upgrade date so they can go out and buy the "exclusive" iPhone that they have been denied access to for years. Even some who had the iPhone, and then switched carriers, long to repurchase another. Yes, the iPhone is a well made smartphone with access to a loaded app store, and has many desirable features. But is it really better than Windows Phone, Blackberry or Android models?
      When Apple entered into a contract with AT&T, they remanufactured the RAZR craze and how the artificial scarcity of the device created such huge demand. The RAZR was a good device, and you may argue it was well ahead of other phones at the time of its release, but the other manufacturers caught up quickly. Apple used a similar strategy and it has paid off immensely. The iPhone is now available on the top 3 carriers in the U.S., but is still seen as a status symbol in many circles. As if only a few people have access to it. One could make a strong argument that the Samsung Galaxy SII is a superior smartphone, but still many customers line up to get the iPhone instead, because their inner hoarder says they NEED it, and the products perceived coolness and limited availability only add to the whole experience.
      The concept of artificial scarcity is simple. You take a product that is plentifully available to manufacture in mass, but limit distribution to a limited time, limited area, or in the case of the iPhone, limited retail outlets.
      The strategy has worked perfect for Disney. Why let your movies make the gradual descent to the $3.99 Wal-Mart bargain bin? Just keep "taking them out of the vault" and offering them at full price for a few months every couple years and people pull their credit cards out to pay $17.99 for an 85 year old movie and thank Disney for "allowing" them the opportunity to purchase Snow White. Oh, and you get to be a part of a limited privileged club.
      Another notable example is McDonald's McRib. If it was on the menu full time, many people either wouldn't bother going to McDonalds or would order something else, but artificial scarcity commands us to rush in to McDonalds and get several McRibs at a time because we won't have another chance at it for another year. What do we end up with, besides a belly ache and a reason why we don't normally eat at McDonalds?
      We should be immune to this form of advertising by now, as we are constantly inundated with limited time availability and special edition products all around us. However it is still alive and well here on Planet Earth, because it still works. Big time.
      Can Apple keep the air of exclusivity over its iPhone as it continues to broaden its distribution? Or will smartphone buyers move on to other devices? Only time will tell. But many doubt that Apple will play its hand as well in an era post Steve Jobs.
