California man sues Apple CEO Tim Cook over automatic iOS 7 update

The suit, titled "Mark David Menacher vs. Tim Cook" by the San Diego County branch of California's Superior Court, seeks a method to remove automatically downloaded iOS update files — specifically the new iOS 7 binary — and $50 in remuneration, reports CNET.

The automatic update system has been active since the release of iOS 6, but many users are holding off  upgrading to iOS 7. But that means the automatically-downloaded installation file, which weighs in at more than one gigabyte and cannot be removed by the user, may decrease a device's available memory by up to 15% with no way to recover the storage space.

iOS 7 adoption is off to the races, higher than first day for iOS 6

A study from mobile advertising network Chitika showed that, less than a full day after it was made available, iOS 7 accounted for more than 18% of North American iOS traffic on the sites it tracks. That’s 3% higher than Chitika saw for iOS 6 in its first day.

With the switch to iOS 7, older iOS apps will become less reliable

So says Crittercism, a company which handles app performance management for many major app makers, including LinkedIn, Netflix, and Pinterest.

As iOS developers focus energy and resources on building the new version of their apps, they are less likely to update old versions to fix performance issues.

That means older versions of iOS apps are crashing more often. Between January and August, Crittercism found that crash rates on iOS 6 and iOS 6.0.1 went up dramatically — by 85% and 74% respectively.

Devs interest in iOS 7 beta is red hot

Chitika, using impressions on its ad network in the U.S. and Canada to determine the share of web traffic that is being generated by devices running iOS 7, found that after three days, the iOS 7 beta is already running on 0.22% of mobile devices. 

That 0.22% three days later is twice as high as interest in the iOS 6 beta more than a month after its release in 2012.

While it may not seem like a high percentage, it's coming from a very specific and limited group – those Apple’s registered developers who’ve paid for the iOS SDK (and possibly some who were able to get it on the grey market).

iOS 7 can identify apps that hog data

This could be quite useful to consumers, giving you the option to cut off these apps to stay below data plan limits.

iOS 7 tracks the data used in the current billing period and even breaks it down by app, something that requires a third-party service and a VPN in iOS 6.

Apple isn’t offering a breakout of foreground and background data usage like Google does. Also, there is no ability to restrict only background data usage, but it is a great start.

iPad Mini launch event reportedly to be held on October 23

This event will be invitation-only and may well be held at Apple’s Town Hall Auditorium (previously used to debut the OS X Lion, MacBook Air and the iPhone 4S), according to AllThingsD, which received the information from people ‘familiar with Apple’s plans’.

Reports emerged last week that Apple was to send out press invites this week for an event on October 17 but such speculation didn’t turn out to be true. The iPad Mini is expected to have a 7.85-inch display, run iOS 6, be WiFi-only and be pitched at a price around $299.

17 Million iPads lead the way as Apple reports $8.8 billion quarterly profit

For its third quarter Apple said its quarterly revenue was $35 billion with a net profit of $8.8 billion. Those results compare favorably to the same quarter a year ago when revenue was $28.6 billion and net profit $7.3 billion. 

Apple’s other best-selling mobile device, the iPhone, did quite well as well, with sales of 26 million units in the quarter, representing a 28% bump up from the same quarter a year ago. “We’re thrilled with record sales of 17 million iPads in the June quarter,” said Apple’s CEO Tim Cook, who will participate in a conference call with analysts later today.

“We’ve also just updated the [...]
