2014 WWDC Keynote Updates

Recommended Posts

Anyone have an idea of when the public beta will be released? I am anxious to try it out....I'm assuming it won't be for a while. Sad face :/

Sometime this summer. I'm assuming late July at the earliest.

I didn't hear them say iOS 8 would be available for public beta, only OS X 10.10.

 

I wish our buddy from iOS 7 days was still part of S4Gru who had access to register devices as beta.

Thanks! Really appreciate that. So much nicer to see the 4" optimized Field Test App.

Looks like the 1x screen finally shows the band class too. Grab a screen shot next time your connected to 1x800, it'll be interesting to see what it reads.

Nah, it has always shown that. When connected to 800, it comes up as Secondary 800 MHz Band or something like that, and in parenthesis it would say "(10)" to indicate band class 10.

Whoever it was opened a thread and charged $5 to get access to the dev beta downloads of iOS7 & he gave half the proceeds to S4GRU. I think he only gave out a limited number of spots and once it was done Robert closed the thread.

Ok, well maybe it has shown the band class when connected to 1x800 for you, but it hasn't showed that info when connected to 1x1900 since the 4S. Whenever I've connected to 1x800 I never had that data either, I had to look at the network ID for 22xxx to even tell if I was on 1x800. It was always sort of frustrating that data was absent and I could never find an explanation.

I have a developer account for a freelance business. Let me see what I can do... 

 

I can tell you, though, that iOS 8b1 is SUPER BUGGY. I'd wait to do anything until at least the second or third beta. I had roll back my iPad to 7.x last night.

Just iOS dev account, or Mac dev account too?

Here's an interesting thing: Resizable iPhone and iPad simulators. It's only just the beginning.

Apple is screaming as loudly as they do within their self-imposed policies that you had better adopt AutoLayout because new device sizes and resolutions are coming.

 

I never thought they'd do third party keyboards but given the security infrastructure around extensions it makes sense to allow it since you can be guaranteed it isn't recording your keystrokes and sending them off to some server.

 

Also they changed the NDA: you can discuss anything they reveal at WWDC on public forums, you just can't post screenshots, reviews, or distribute the software (duh).

Third party keyboards? "Swype" on my iPhone? Now we're talking.

 

Yes, I'm glad to welcome Apple to 2010.

Is it really that bad? Was talking to someone I know who works for Apple, and he mentioned that it is stable'ish on the iPhone.

 

I'm not so keen on jumping in feet first, but it would be cool :)

Just got my device registered through work to test our new app. iOS 8 has a long way to go. But most apps seem to work fine.

I'm running into app compatibility issues with a few third party apps. The jump from 6 to 7 was more difficult, though.

 

I'll hold off for a few more releases before I jump. The iMessage fixes are so great it's worth it.

After seeing Yosemite I realize how done I am with mavericks. I can't wait for the transparency. I am tired of GRAY everything.

      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.

      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.”

      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.
