How to get an iOS 7 look on Chrome’s new tab page

November 1, 2013

The iOS 7 New Tab Page Chrome extension replaces the regular new tab page with an interface that can easily be mistaken for iOS 7.

A default set of “apps” on the screen are really just shortcuts to Web sites.

The “App Store” allows you to install additional preconfigured shortcuts to one of the three screens. If you want to delete the apps or rearrange them, clicking on one of the apps for a couple of seconds will cause the icons to shake, just like in iOS 7.

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

October 18, 2013

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.

Numerous commentators have taken to Apple’s forum boards over the last week to relay how the new parallax and zoom effects on iOS 7 are making them feel unwell.

"I had severe vertigo the minute I started using my iPad with iOS 7," [...]

Problems with Apple’s iPhone activation server prompts high priority alert

September 19, 2013

Quoting a "reliable source," AppleInsider says Apple has sent out an internal P1 (high priority) alert notifying employees of server issues that are preventing customers from activating their iPhones, whether the device is brand new or recently restored.

Compounding the problem are "other internal issues," though the exact nature of these complications is unknown at this time. 

Apple made the finished version of iOS 7 available for download today and it's safe to assume the company's servers have been more active than usual.

Consumer-friendly iOS 7 set to debut Wednesday with key enterprise feature

September 16, 2013

With the iOS 7 update, Apple’s mobile operating system now supports enterprise single sign-on. This is a game-changer because it means that once a user’s identity is verified and trusted, enterprise apps or commercial apps that access enterprise data or services won’t require users to repeatedly authenticate with their Active Directory or enterprise credentials.

Even better, Apple is making it relatively easy for developers to implement its single sign-on model.

Apple event is official – expect release of new iPhones and more on September 10

September 3, 2013

Per usual, the invite provides few details noting only in a tagline, “This should brighten everyone’s day.” Apple will host the event at its Cupertino, Calif. campus.

Earlier reports had Apple also announcing a new iPad, but the rumor mill consensus on that now appears to be that Apple will hold a separate iPad event in October.

The September 10 will likely see the formal release (or worst case, an update of its progress in beta) of iOS 7 that Apple previewed in the summer at its WWDC developers conference.
