News tagged ‘beta’
It's Sunday today, so I've decided to make up a list of the most popular news of the past seven days. If you think you missed something interesting, take a look.
Apple on Wednesday released the second OS X Mavericks 10.9.4 beta to registered developers for testing. There’s no information about new features added to this OS X version. Looks like it contains only some minor improvements and bug fixes.
According to the latest rumors, the guys from Cupertino are planning to refresh the iMac lineup as soon as next week. As to the changes, there will be only some minor ones. Apple may slightly boost the desktop's processor speed and change some internal components. That's all we can expect.
As you probably know, Apple's iOS 8, which was announced at Worldwide Developers Conference last week, contains a number of important enhancements. However, those who have upgraded to iOS 8 beta may have noticed that there're no updates for Apple's native Maps app. According to the latest reports, lack of updates is caused by the fact that many developers left the company in 2014.
Apple has released iOS 8 beta to developers for testing. There're, however, several methods of upgrading to this iOS version if you don't have a developer account. Well, this is what you know.
It's Sunday today, so looks like it is time to talk about the most interesting stories of the past seven days. Let's begin right now.
Apple on Monday officially announced iOS 8 beta and seeded it to developers. The new operating system for iPhones and iPads can boast of some noticeable improvements and design tweaks.
There're, however, some hidden features you won't find without the specialist's help. One of such features is the ability to customize the Control Center.
As you already know, a bunch of new interesting features have been added to Apple's OS X Yosemite 10.10 and iOS 8. Both operating systems were announced at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference keynote, which took place on Monday.
Among the new features, today I'd like to point out only two. These are iMessage screen sharing and FaceTime Audio conference calls.
After initial signs pointed towards a good chance that iOS 8 was jailbreakable, famous hacker Stefan Esser (nickname i0n1c), tweeted an image that shows off the ability to SSH into an iPod touch running iOS 8 from his Mac, which basically means he has successfully jailbroken iOS 8 on iPod Touch 5G.
I just leave this here ...
There is no information whether i0n1c will release a public jailbreak. Anyway, It would be logical to wait until iOS 8 is officially released so as to not burn any exploits.
Without further ado, here are a load of screenshots showing off iOS 8 and iOS 7 side-by-side:
Good news for all jailbreakers - looks like Apple’s new iOS 8 is jailbreakable. According to what security expert Stefan Esser (aka i0n1c) has tweeted a couple of hours ago, the guys from Cupertino haven’t fixed the kernel bug used to jailbreak iOS-devices. This means that immediately after the public release of iOS 8 we may have a jailbreak for it.
Apple has just announced the next version of the operating system for Macs - OS X Yosemite 10.10. The new operating system features numerous improvements and bug fixes. And, of course, some worth mentioning new features. More details - below.
Like every Sunday, I’d like to tell you about the most interesting posts of the last seven days. Let’s start.
Apple has released the first OS X Mavericks 10.9.4 beta to developers for testing. This OS X beta has a build number 13E9 and contains only stability improvements and minor bug fixes. However, there’s one interesting thing about this OS X version.
Apple today released the final version of OS X Mavericks 10.9.3 to users worldwide. The release comes after two months of developer testing. In case you don't know, the last beta (build 13D61) was released last week and contained minor improvements.
