Man sues Apple CEO over automatic iOS 7 download

I don’t understand this. You will have to agree to the update to update the phone. It does not do it automatically. On every device I have it says there is an update but it never download unless I agree. Did I miss something?

Man sues Apple CEO over automatic iOS 7 download

I was wondering of this automatic undate, is that only if your phone has enough space or is there a way for apple to do it no matter what? i have 4 with only 8GB of space and i have not done the last 4 updates and have not ever had an automatic update done even tho i run wifi at my house, any info would be great.

PS I don’t have the space for the update i only have 1.4 GB of free storage

WSJ: Apple cuts iPhone 5c orders, boosts 5s

The 5C is a perfect example of the “can’t put lipstick on a pig” aphorism. While the masses might not be that up on the nitty gritty details, it’s still immediately obvious that you’re getting a much better product for only $100 more by going with the 5S. And if you’re even passingly familiar with the details, you’re well aware that Apple is merely trying to sell you old tech as a new product by sticking it in a brightly colored plastic shell. There is nothing surprising to me about Apple slashing 5C orders; shake my head every time yet another commercial for the emperor’s new clothes airs.

Steve Jobs believed he was WWII fighter pilot in past life

He was also aroused by the sound of a Mac’s startup chime.

Funny how obsessed we are about Jobs.

After iOS 7, dev recommends publishers avoid Newsstand

I’m glad I can finally hide Newstand. I would delete it if I could. On top of that,  prices for most subscriptions are so so at best.

After iOS 7, dev recommends publishers avoid Newsstand

Obviously a publisher centric viewpoint. I have used Zinio for years, like the Kindle reader app all my content is kept in one library. I as an end user PREFER that. Imagine if every book was its own app. That might be nice for the publisher, but does nothing but trash up my device with a zillion different icons and apps which I would then manage by stuffing them all in one folder. Sound familiar? Pulling magazines out of newsstand is going the wrong direction, in fact it actually encourages me NOT to subscribe to a publisher’s magazine.

Survey: iPhone 5s outselling 5c two to one

I ordered my 64 GB silver 5s on 9/20 @ 12:02 PST and received it on 9/25. I guess it paid off staying up until 3:00 AM EST. I do miss the ability to preorder, though.

AT&T to only offer Mobile Share plans

I don’t see this as a problem. I was able to upgrade my existing plan at no additional cost from 450 minutes to unlimited (I already had unlimited texting) and got tethering free as a bonus! I don’t see any downside.

Apple releases iOS 7.0.2

@3:  Spotlight search is alive and well, just a different way to get to it.  Instead of pressing the Home button, now pull down anywhere on the screen (but not too high, otherwise you bring up the Notification Center).

Survey: iPhone 5s outselling 5c two to one

At the risk of heresy, I really prefer the iPhone 5C esthetics over the iPhone 5S.  It appears organic, like the Motorola Pebble of old, yet fun with its poppy colors.  I only wish it came in Project (RED) red.

I plan on getting the rumored Apple watch next year which will undoubtedly be groundbreaking and require the M7 coprocessor exclusive to the iPhone 5S.  Therefore, I will likely be picking up an iPhone 5S.  By the time I can find one, Apple will probably have released their watch.

Survey: iPhone 5s outselling 5c two to one

Only if you can get one.

I ordered on 20th September and didn’t even get a dispatch date until Friday October 11th! Even now, there’s no tracking information.
Meanwhile, people in the UK who ordered on 23rd Sep have already received their handsets.
Apple’s supply chain and customer service leave A LOT to be desired.

Apple releases iOS 7.0.2

I installed 7.0.2 on my iPhone and can no longer find the function to search the whole phone.  I used to be able to enter a name and the phone would generate a list of all references in the phone to that name, categorised by Contacts, email, Meaages, etc.  Where has the function gone?  Originally, I just slid the screen over to the right and there it was.

Some Verizon iPhone 5s units having SIM issues?

Apple criticized for pulling private browsing app in China

This is pretty bad. 

Notice, they didn’t say the government required them to take this down.  I’m sure they would have if they had known, but it’s likely they might not have even found out about this app.  Apple took it upon themselves to take this down.

Reuters: Retina iPad mini may slip to 2014

All I can hope is that if there is anything substantive behind this rumor that Apple doesn’t rush out a “iPod touch 3G” version of the mini to fill in for the holidays (because if they do, they probably won’t bring the real upgrade until late next year).

I’m ready to bust out the credit card for a genuinely competent iPad mini that will last a couple of years, but not paying for another deliberately old tech in a new shell model.

Apple selling refurbished 128GB iPads online

As usual, AppleCanada ships all the iPads to the US and never gets any refurbs back…

Apple motion against Lodsys dismissed

Not really sure what the judge’s angle here is, but I’m sure there’s nuanced legal argument for why an obvious patent troll is allowed to go after people using *Apple’s* APIs which *Apple* has licensed and, yet, *Apple* isn’t allowed to file an intervention on their behalf :rolleyes:

There’s too much money involved for Apple to allow this to continue - figure the next step will be 1) Apple provides legal counsel for the afflicted developers, 2) Apple refuses to pay any further licensing fees to Lodsys, and 3) Apple files motion to invalidate the patents in question since they’re about as inherently valid as an IOU for one million dollars from a homeless guy written on toilet paper.

Companies like Apple only pay these fees in the first place because it’s cheaper than going to the trouble of fighting these patent troll corporations, but if paying them off doesn’t do any good because they continue to intimidate your developers that earn you a lot of money, that rationale goes bye-bye.

Apple releases iOS 7.0.2

I want to update my iPhone 5 (6.1.4) to the latest iOS.  However I have an iPhone 5S on order that should ship in 7-14 days from AT&T but I don’t know if it will come with iOS 7 or one of the updates.  Should I hold off updating my current phone until I know what version my 5S will come with?

I installed the update and you can still bypass the lock screen.

Apple announces iWork, iPhoto, iMovie iOS apps go free*

Confirmed that Jesse was correct—Pages, Numbers, Keynote, iPhoto and iMovie are indeed free on a new iPhone 5S, and these apps synced back to my library and I was able to add them to my legacy iOS devices, nice!
