iOS 8 Released

Recommended Posts

I had to turn off Swiftkey because it wouldn't work with Tweetbot. I've seen somewhere that you can't use third party keyboards for passwords for security reasons.

 

Apparently some apps just don't see the third party keyboards as well.

 

It's not like Apple to half-ass anything, but this is frustrating to be honest.

To be fair, tweetbot on iPad hasn't been updated to iOS 7/8 look for a while.

I'm running into this problem more and more though with even normal Apple apps like Mail. It's almost as if the OS hasn't had a chance to "load" the keyboard when I run it.

Anyone else having a problem with aftermarket keyboards do not appear or "stick"?

 

I have swiftkey installed, and depending on the application, it will either load a lousy default Apple keyboard, or Swiftkey.

 

Kinda annoying that I have to keep going to the settings whenever texting to switch keyboards.

I had this issue playing around on my 5s yesterday. I uninstalled it because of that and went back to the apple keyboard. You could just completely delete the english keyboard from your phone, along with the other one and it might fix it???

I tried that, and randomly you'll see a generic apple keyboard without correction pop up.

I'm using SwiftKey and only get the generic apple keyboard on password pages.

This actually makes sense from a security point of view.  I also noticed you can't access third party keyboards from the lock-screen.

iCloud Drive is now available to download for Windows.  Just update through the Apple Software update application.

So, I need some help. I last used my iPhone 5s on 7.1.2, and ran an iCloud backup. It's not allowing me to restore that backup on my 6 with 8.0. Can you only restore from the same iOS version? Also, I can't seem to get my photo stream back. I've tried disabling/re-enabling that feature, and nothing appears in my "photos" app. Thoughts?

Photostream pictures are only stored for thirty days.

 

My wife had issues restoring an iCloud backup on her six. Sounds like just another bug in Ios8

Sounds like a bug. I restored from a back up on my computer, and not iCloud this time...because the stupid rep set my phone up for me. Anywhoooooooo, there is no reason this should be happening. An iOS 8 bug sounds more like the culprit here....

 

Sheesh Apple, if iOS 8 wasn't ready for public release, people would've been JUST FINE waiting a week or so extra for a more stable version to be pushed.

Did you sign into the correct iCloud account for Photostream first?

Of course. I only have 1 iCloud account. This is frustrating.

You can only restore from an iTunes backup to a lower version of iOS (8.0.1 to 8.0, for instance).

That's the answer I was looking for. So you can't go 7.1.2 --> 8.0.2. I basically have my phone manually put back together, and my pictures/videos are on my laptop, so I guess I'll survive. My plan B was that I read Apple is still signing 7.1.2, so I could downgrade, restore, upgrade, and backup. Thanks for your help.

Which iPhone do you have? IIRC the 6 doesn't rotate horizontally on the home screen if that's what you are referring to.

      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

      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

      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.
