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.
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.
The first, would be an official and permanent fix for the iMessage issues that continue to plague iPhone users. The other would address a problem with the software on board iPads that were delivered to school districts for use in the classroom.
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.
One user wrote that “the zoom animations are literally making me nauseous and giving me a headache”, while another compared the feeling to car sickness. Others have complained of illness, eye pain and dizziness. One user said he felt so unwell that he had to take the day off work.
“It’s exactly how I used to get car sick if I tried to read in the car,” said Apple forum user Ensorceled.
"I had severe vertigo the minute I started using my iPad with iOS 7," [...]
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.
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.
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.
Tuesday's update brings iMovie to version 1.4.2, GarageBand to version 1.4.1, and iPhoto to version 1.1.1. None of the descriptions for the updates go into much detail beyond noting the update "addresses compatibility issues.
The GarageBand update does also say it "addresses minor issues related to general performance and stability."
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.
Citing unnamed sources for the news, All Things D reports that the model, known variously as the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C or iPhone 6, will debut at a special event.
The website didn’t have any further details on the model, although earlier reports have indicated that Apple could launch a budget iPhone with a plastic rear and a fingerprint sensor built into the home button. The new model will almost certainly run the recently-launched iOS 7.
