Apple Released iOS 7 Beta 6 to Developers





Apple has released iOS 7 Beta 6 today, so you’re welcome to download it. This release should have occurred next week, but somehow the company from Cupertino decided not to wait for so long. According to the rumors, this is the last Beta before the official iOS 7 release on September 10th.

The size of the new update is only 13.5MB, so obviously it includes only some minor changes and bug fixes. Anyway, if there would be some improvements that are worth mentioning, I’ll immediately inform you.

So far, the only thing I know is that this Beta fixes the problem with iTunes in the Cloud connected with content downloads and purchases.

52% of developers are using iOS 7-only app updates



Last month it was found out that very few users are ready to pay for iOS 7 app updates on apps they already owned.  Most of them would prefer to stay on iOS 6, rather than to update to iOS 7 and pay again for the apps.

Let's have at what developers think.

Craig Hockenberry, developer at Iconfactory (Twitterrific):

Like many of my fellow developers, I am in the middle of an update of an app for iOS 7. As you’d expect, it’s a lot more work than previous versions of iOS. But results are stunning: both David Lanham and I have commented that our shipping version was “feeling old and clunky.”

While cranking along on the update, a couple of thoughts occurred to me: how many other developers were doing the same thing and were they going to commit fully to iOS 7? The depth and breadth of the changes in iOS 7 makes it difficult to support older versions of the OS.

New privacy rules are to be introduced by U.S. Government



After the release of some new government proposals, App developers will be obliged to specify what data they collect and how it is used.

The US government’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration today issued its first draft of what will be a mobile apps code of conduct intended to better protect consumers and their privacy. If made final, policy states that publishers must provide consumers with “short-form” notices in multiple languages informing them of how their data is being used [...]

Just so that there’s no doubt about what “data” means, the government entity specifically says it includes biometrics, browser history, phone or text log, contacts, financial info, health, medical, or therapy info, location, and user files …


However the proposals may turn out to be rather ineffective…
