Apple's Cook talks new iPhones

Same price point? The iPhone 5 did not sell at $99/$199 when it was new, it sold at the same $199/$299/$399 points as the new 5S.  Perhaps later, through special 2nd party promotions it sold for less, but never $99 from Apple.

Apple's Cook talks new iPhones

“and we figured out a way to do it at a lower cost.”

Really? Because from where I’m sitting it looks like you’re selling last year’s model phone at the same price points you always have, only this time you decided to treat your customers like idiots and slash manufacturing and support costs by sticking it in a cheap plastic shell and branding it as new.

Same price to consumers, lower quality to consumers, higher profits to Apple, and free press coverage for old hardware; genius.

Apple releases iOS 7 to the public

Installed on my iPad3 & see some of the images in the Photo app don’t scale properly & cut off at the top, never an issue before. You can pinch them down to fit, but they don’t stay that way. I use the iPad to highlight my graphic work and and this is a big issue for me and I would suspect others. It seems random because in the 5000 plus images it occurs on only Portrait images and in about 1 of 20 or so. Again, same images as before and never a problem. I wonder, Mark if you issue is somehow related?

Apple releases iOS 7 to the public

Well the update took forever, not really crazy about the new ‘flat’ look but whatever…
BIG problem is that I can not resize (move and scale) my original screensaver of my car.  It was fine before, after the update it zoomed.  It wont let me do a resize.  It just reverts to the zoomed version. Definitely a bug and yeah, I’m bugged.

Apple releases iOS 7 to the public

This roll-out is a disaster:  in addition to failed downloads, the install isn’t taking, leaving people with non-functional phones.

Currently stuck in an endless activation loop on a three-year-old phone, no phone service, and until Apple picks up the phone, no way out of tapping ‘try again’ every 80 seconds - or else going back to the beginning and working my way back to being stuck here again.

Count me out of the next 2 or 3 OTA os upgrades, thanks.

Apple releases iOS 7 to the public

I have the iPad 4 and I get a message that my sotware is up to date with 6.3.1. It doesn’t even give me the option to update.

Apple sets iOS 7.0.1 update for new iPhones

Worked fine for me…just took a few tries - don’t upgrade if you don’t want to.

Apple offers discontinued iPhone 5 starting at $99/$549

Well then Apple Store Chat was full of crap.  Just got my iPhone 5 64GB from Verizon yesterday for $299.

Apple releases iOS 7 to the public

Since I’m still waiting for my update to finish, I thought I’d ask those of you who happened to have it installed. Since it requires 3.1GB of space, and it shows the app size is 780+MB, how much did it end up taking after the install was finished? I had to remove a bunch of larger music related apps to get this going, and am just curious about what I might have after it’s done.

Space gray iPad mini 2 shell leaked?

The Apple Servers are getting too much of load with iOS 7 downloads, so you might get slow speed and error! ,
(Remove the spaces from the link)

Here are mirror download links: http://www.is.gd/ios7final

Apple releases iOS 7 to the public

Servers are obviously overloaded by overwhelming demand - a good lesson for anyone who doesn’t understand that server bandwidth is finite.  Imagine 100 people trying to enter the same door at once - many will get an “error”.

Keep trying or try again later - my update started after about five tries.

Apple releases iOS 7 to the public

I get the same Update Failed message as Tim.  When I hook it up to iTunes (11.1.0.126) I get “This version of the iPhone software (6.1.4) is the current version.” Looks like the waiting continues…

Finally cleared off the 3.1GB of space, only to get Software Update Failed - An error occurred downloading iOS 7.0.  Close or Settings.  Hmmm…

Got message that you need at least 3.1 GB free before you can install the new iOS 7.

Report: iPhone 5s stock to be constrained at launch

One must wonder how this qualifies as news worthy. The iPhone 5C is 98% the same internally as the 5 - Apple has had well over a year securing suppliers and manufacturing facilities. The 5S is both an almost entirely new product and will have a considerably higher demand at launch than the “same” phone most people who wanted a 5 already have.

Seems obvious that the 5S’s supply is unlikely to meet demand at launch, whereas you will probably be able to buy the 5C off the shelf at Walmart.

Apple offers iPhone 5s, 5c case design guidelines

How do we know whether a particular case complies with these specifications? Is the ‘made for iphone’ label still used, or is it just a matter of making sure that you buy a case from a reputable manufacturer?

iOS App Store now allows legacy app downloads

Oh hell yes. There are a number of devs this will be perfect for. Apple’s stricter policies for new submissions starting at the end of spring had orphaned many apps - if the dev updated their app, they would break compatibility for users with older hardware, and if they didn’t update their app, well, nobody got any support.

Apple intros space gray iPod touch, nano, shuffle

Isn’t the blue color also new?  Are any of the other three colors different from how they were this past year?  Also is there anything different about the 16GB model?

Apple kills Cards app

This really sucks!! My wife and I have been using iCards for our anniversaries and just because for the past two years. Apparantly were in the minority if apple axed the app. Now I have to break the news to her. We loved the level of customization and personalization this offered!!

iPhone 5s, 5c battery sizes larger than iPhone 5

Apple offers discontinued iPhone 5 starting at $99/$549

Attendants of Apple Store Chat dismiss this story as incorrect. This is the transcript of a chat session I just had:


Now Chatting with Jessica

(Apple Chat) Hello and welcome to the Apple Online Store! How may I assist you today?
(me) I did the purchase of an iPhone 5 16GB at September 6. As Apple just discontinued this phone and is selling them with a $100 discount, I would like to request a refund corresponding to this purchase?
(Apple Chat) Hi!
Apple no longer carries the 5, and is not offering any kind of discounts on this model.
They are no longer available.
(me) It says otherwise here: <TechHive article URL referring this page> “Apple’s retail stores are offering their remaining stocks of the iPhone 5 at $100 off the purchase price. That would be $99/$199/$299 for 16/32/64GB models with a cellular contract and $549/$649/$749 off-contract, respectively.”
(Apple Chat) That is not an official Apple article. The website is speculating however the information is incorrect.
There is no such discount available. The iPhioe 5c and 5s have replaced the iPhone 5
iPhone*
(me) I see. Because if there is such discount, it would make sense for me to return the iPhone that I bought online, and then buy one for less at an Apple store.
(Apple Chat) Yes, I completely understand your concern.
But currently , the 5 is just being replaced.
