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.

ITC ban on Older iPhones, iPads was vetoed



According to WSJ, the Obama Administration has vetoed an ITC ban on the sale of older iPhones and iPads. The law would have prohibited selling of such models as AT&T iPhone 4 and iPad 2.

U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman made the decision to veto the ban on the Apple devices, citing concerns about patent holders gaining "undue leverage." He said Samsung could continue to pursue its patent rights through the courts. The action marked the first time since 1987 that a presidential administration had vetoed a product ban ordered by the U.S. International Trade Commission.

Since now the problem has risen of allowing companies to use  standard essential patents to block rival products.
