Apple has fixed an issue that turned off the geolocation functions of the force-closed apps in iOS 7.1, developersreport. Latest betas prove that closing an application in the so to say “wrong way” doesn’t influence its location capabilities. And that is another improvement of the next-gen iOS 7.1 that is expected to be officially released in March.
The company from Cupertino on Thursday released the fifth OS X 10.9.2 Mavericks beta to developers for testing purposes. Over the past few weeks, Apple has seeded several OS X betas, which means that the final version is nearly ready and the public release will take place soon.
Looks like Apple has found a way to prevent people from jailbreaking their iOS devices. According to iH8sn0w, iOS 7.1 beta 5, released on Tuesday, patches two exploits used to jailbreak Apple’s smartphones and tablets. Keep in mind that the fourth beta patched another vulnerability used by evasi0n7. It appears that beginning from iOS 7.1, it would be impossible to hack your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. And that is definitely not good.
It’s Sunday again. Like every Sunday, I’d like to share with some of the most important and interesting stories of the last week. Many worth mentioning events took place, so if you think you missed something, don’t waste your time and take a look at our top posts.
Apple on Thursday seeded the fourth OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 beta to developers. What is interesting is that this release comes just a week after the third OS X beta. Looks like the guys from Cupertino plan to finalize the new version of the operating system for Macs as soon as possible. Well, that good, I guess.
According to the recently updated App Store support page for developers, iOS 7 is now running on at least 80% of smartphones and tablets, which have access to the App Store. What that means is that the seventh version of the Apple’s mobileoperating system shows the highest level of adoption, even though at first many users refused to upgrade to it saying the new design was ugly and inconvenient.
It is Sunday today and I think that you know what that means, huh? It’s time for our traditional top 10 stories of the week. A number of interesting things happened during the past seven days, I must say. But everything in its turn.
Apple has released OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 beta 3 to developers for testing. As to the improvements, this version looks pretty much the same as the one released about a week ago. Apple asks developers to focus on SMB2, Mail, Messages, Graphics Drivers, VoiceOver, and VPN.
Apple released iOS 7.1beta 4 to developers on Tuesday. The new iOS version contains a number of performance improvements and a fix for the message sending issue. As to the other notable enhancements, these are only ‘slide to unlock’ and ‘slide to power off’ texts, which seem to be tweaked a bit.
Looks like it’s Sunday again and that means I have to make a short review of the most interesting events of these days for people who don’t have enough time to read each post we publish during the week.
