Apple has released the very first iOS 7.1 beta to registered developers. The build number of this firmware version is 11D5099e, it is available for testing purposes only. Apart from the new iOS 7.1, the company from Cupertino seeded a new Apple TV beta.
Apple has released Safari 6.1 Seed 6 for developers. It is compatible with OS X Lion and Mountain Lion and requires Security Update 2013-002. Here’s what the company from Cupertino says about the new beta-version:
This pre-release version of Safari includes WebKit enhancements for better text, layout, and accessibility support. It also includes a redesigned Web Inspector with a streamlined toolbar, a new Activity Viewer, and other great tools for building and debugging your website. Please refer to the seed note for more details.
Some new lower cost iPhone and iPhone 5S mockups leaked online. This time it’s a Vietnamese website Tinhte that is the author of the photos. This site, by the way, is famous for the pre-release Apple gadgets reviews, so I guess we can trust it.
According to a
14 percent of respondents indicated that they are ‘somewhat’ likely and 5 percent ‘very’ likely to purchase an iWatch, with current owners of Apple products significantly more likely to buy an iWatch.
iMore dug through the recently released third beta of iOS 5.1 and found evidence showing that Apple could add a deeper iPhone and iPad integration with Facebook into a future operating system update. In one screenshot shown for the iOS Contacts application, there is an option to enter a person's Facebook user name right below their Twitter account. The same deeper integration was provided for Twitter that was one of the most-touted features of iOS 5, which was publicly released last October.
Deep integration with the social networking service allows users to quickly post Web links from Safari or pictures saved in the Photos application to Twitter. Presumably, future iOS integration with Facebook would offer similar functionality, making it easier for users to share information with their friends on the popular website.
The pre-release build of iOS 5.1 also reportedly includes references to new iPad models that are named in the code such as "J1AP" and "J2AP." The references corroborate with rumored code-names of "J1" and "J2" that were first reported last November, when it was said that Apple was secretly working on two new iPad models.
Apple is requiring developers to start testing iCloud beta 5 and install Mac OS X 10.7.2 build 11C26 for that purpose, but the company has not provided its developers with any information on test builds of Mac OS X 10.7.1 yet.
People familiar with the Apple’s plans believe that Apple will initiate a separate beta test for Mac OS X 10.7.1 in the coming days or weeks. Moreover, developers, who have installed Mac OS X 10.7.2 and iCloud beta 5 note changes in Lion's "Mail, Contacts & Calendars" control panel and iCloud management interface that provides tools for managing storage, backups, and purchasing additional storage and lets users choose which forms of data they'd like synced to the cloud.
Instead of the iOS 4.2 public release, Apple on Friday seeded a second gold master of iOS 4.2 build for the iPad, labeled 8C134b. Apple didn’t report what changes have been made in the new version, but it’s possible that they should deal with the WiFi issue that some users experienced with the pre-release build and that apparently delayed the launch of iOS 4.2.
Typically a gold master issued to developers is identical to the version that becomes the final release.
This is a pre-release version of Xcode 4, a major new release of Xcode for both Mac and iOS development. This release requires Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, and includes the iOS SDK 4.1, to develop apps for Mac, iPhone, and iPad. Please review the Release Notes and Readme before installing this software.
Apple has just released the firmware iOS 4.2 Beta 3, together with SDK and iTunes 10.1 Beta 2. The SDK is build 10M2423 and the firmware is build 8C5115c. iTunes 10.1 Beta 2 is a pre-release version to support testing of printing from iOS apps. Developers can download the firmware, SDK, and iTunes from the iPhone Developer Center.
According to 9to5Mac, new pre-release of upcoming iOS 4 reveals new feature of exporting video to Facebook. As it can be seen from the screenshot of the code, the maximum height and width of the video will probably be 480 pixels, and the maximum frame rate will be 30 frames per second.
Previously Apple supported export to e-mail, Mobile Me, MMS and YouTube (second picture above).
This is not an official release by Devteam, so we recommend to wait for the final versions of both iOS 4.0 and PwnageTool.
