Safari Push Notifications - One of the OS X Mavericks New Features



Safari version for OS X Mavericks will get push notifications. Take a look at the email sent to the developers by the company from Cupertino to make sure I’m not telling lies.

You can now use the Apple Push Notifications Service to send notifications to your website users, right on their Mac desktop — even when Safari isn’t running. Safari Push Notifications work just like push notifications for apps. They display your website icon and notification text, which users can click to go right to your website.

iPhone Home button with a fingerprint scanner



The photos of the home button of the iPhone 5S show that it includes some new components. Accordng to Nowhereelse, they are most likely to refer to the rumored fingerprint scanner.

The first notable difference of course for the general shape of the map but not really enough to jump to the ceiling. Even more interesting, a mysterious square element placed closer button instantly revives the rumor. Followed by two other components attached to the extension of the map and that all seemed to be resistance. Needless to say that these three elements are absent from the button back to the home of the iPhone 5 and is to my knowledge unprecedented for this spare parts, all iPhone generations combined.

The part has the identification number 821-2092-01, it seems to have been manufactured on the 29th week of 2013 (mid-July).

However, MacRumors claims that the same part was sold om sw-box as a component of iPhone 5C . So it is not clear what device it belongs to.

Apple will unveil both iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C on September 10th.

Verizon to block employee vacations on September 18th-22nd



According to 9to5Mac, Verizon prohibiting employees to go on vacation between September 18th-22nd. This is exactly the period between rumored iPhone 5S release to be held on September 20th.

As Apple’s September 10th iPhone unveiling approaches, we’ve heard that Verizon Wireless is blocking its retail employees from requesting vacations between Wednesday, September 18th and Sunday, September 22nd. Based on Apple historically shipping new versions of the iPhone about a week and half following the unveiling, it would make sense for the new iPhones to arrive for customers on Friday, September 20th.

Moreover, Verizon is rumored to have little stocks of the 32GB and 64GB iPhone 5 models. So we may assume that the carrier is expecting the launch of new generation of devices. Walmart has also decreased the price of the iPhone 5 to $98 with Verizon contract.
