Apple Temporarily Freezing In-App Purchase Approvals



in-app purchases

A number of iOS developers have been unable for over a week now to get their in-app purchase content approved by Apple, as the company requires in the iTunes Connect developer portal to test IAP with a test user account, but this account has been offline with no explanation from Apple.

As a matter of policy, Apple requires developers to test in-app purchases (IAP) with a test user account before the application in question can be approved. Unfortunately, this test account has been offline for a week now with no word as to why. If you are a developer, you can see the relevant thread on Apple’s own developer forums here.

Microsoft, HTC, Nokia File Complaints Over Apple’s “App Store” Trademark



App-Store

Microsoft, HTC, Nokia and Sony Ericsson filed formal complaints against Apple’s attempt at getting the terms “App Store” and “Appstore” trademarked. In a statement, a Microsoft spokesperson said that Apple’s application was an “unsupportable claim of exclusivity” and noted that the terms “App Store” and “Appstore” are like “toy store” or “book store” – a generic term “that should continue to be available for everyone to use for stores that sell apps.”

Apple Changes Its App Policy, Focuses On The Quality, Not Quantity



itunes-app-store

Recently Apple has made changes to its app policy and focused on making the iOS App Store the most attractive rather than simply the biggest.

Lately the company has banned the idea of "incentivized app installs", which was used by certain game developers to prompt players to install other apps if they want to continue playing. Because of the incentives some apps become artificially popular and don’t reflect the actual situation in top games chart, for instance.

Apple Officially Responds On Location Tracking Issue



iPhoneTracker

After a week of discussions around the discovery that the iPhone has an inbuilt algorithm of keeping track of users' locations in unencrypted file, Apple finally shed light on the subject.

Before we repost the company's official statement, here is a short summary. Apple says it's not tracking the location of iPhone users.

Next iPhone with larger screen revealed



large screen iphone

M.I.C. Gadget posts two images of the co-called “iPhone 4S” - an iPhone they’re pretty sure isn’t an iPhone 4, but possibly an updated model that includes a 3.7″ display, and the same proximity sensor as the white iPhone 4. The new display is nearly edge-to-edge. The photos show us the new screen to be slightly taller and slightly wider. If the image is legitimate, it appears to be closer to 3.7 inches than 4 inches. M.I.C. Gadget also speculates that it may have an A5 processor (a prototype model) that game developers are using to build games. Strings in iOS 4.3 revealed that the iPhone was slated to receive the updated processor, and recently a white iPhone was rumored being tested on T-Mobile’s network packing an A5 processor.

The Problems with a Retina Display on the Mac



Chart-of-Hypothetical-Retina-Display-Resolutions

The latest build of Lion includes some icons which are sized at 1024x1024. That's twice the current 512x512 size of icons in Snow Leopard. Additionally, on April 2nd, Mac blog OSXDaily found some of the default wallpaper resolutions in Lion to be as large as 3200×2000 pixels (see the shot below). A few observers noted that this is higher than any Apple display has ever supported, generating speculation that Apple is preparing for "Retina" display Macs in the near future.

Taking cues from iOS, Apple has reportedly built in support for what it calls "HiDPI display modes". These HiDPI modes allow developers to supply 2x-enlarged images to support double-high resolution displays. Like the iPhone 4's Retina Display, this means that user interface elements will remain the same size, but everything will be twice the resolution and therefore twice as detailed.

Apple Gives Selected Developers the So-Called iPhone 4S For Creating New Titles



iPhone4Game

9to5Mac has posted interesting information on Thursday, which reveals that Apple is going to make gaming performance of the next-gen iPhone as one of its major marketing points.

In order to do that Apple has already selected highly professional developers and gave them devices that look exactly like iPhone 4 but have an A5 processor instead of an A4. It is obviously possible due to the support of A5 chip, recently found in the iOS 4 SDK. The source of this information calls the device as the "iPhone 4S" (iPhone 4 Super?) and says it is used only in Apple's offices.
