iOS 5 To Feature “Completely Revamped” Notifications and Widgets



Dashboard_Widget_icon

As far as we know, WWDC, set for the 6th June, will be about software and the future of iOS and Mac OS X. TechCrunch believes that the forthcoming iOS 5 will be unveiled at the WWDC because Apple invited journalists and the iPhone PR team that usually covers major iOS announcements. As expected, Apple will introduce a completely revamped notifications and widgets. Apple’s fans’ videos in the past weeks showed how Apple could change notifications and bring new voice-recognition features and implement Lion-like Dashboard and home screen widgets. Other interesting feature, Nuance’s voice-recognition, which Apple is rumored to implement with some licensing deals on iOS and OS X Lion, will unlikely to be introduced  in a new version of Voice Control (functionality that allows users to quickly call a contact or control music playback only using their voice) for iOS 5.

Mac OS X Lion Nearing Public Release



ios lion release

TUAW reports that Mac OS X Lion has gone “live for internal testing” at Apple last week. Whilst it’s not clear what that means, we assume Apple has begun widespread internal testing of a new build of the OS that’s nearing GM status. TUAW suggests Lion might see a public release at WWDC in two weeks, or at least sooner than previously expected:

This suggests the new OS might possibly ship as early as WWDC with an “available today” mention at the keynote — or it might not. But Lion is looking to be one step closer to availability for Apple customers.

Remind you that the latest developer preview of OS X Lion brought minor graphical changes to apps Apple had already updated, as well as tweaks and performance improvements to make the OS more stable and faster.

According to Russian analyst and Mobile Review editor Eldar Murtazin, the 2009 iPhone 3GS will stay on iOS 4, thus leaving the iPhone 4 and next-generation device Apple is scheduled to announce later this year as the only iPhone models capable of running iOS 5.

Apple Pulls iAds From Kid-Focused Apps as Advertisers Target Efforts



dex_pokemon

MacStories posted a message from one App Store developer who recently saw the iAd fill rate for his Dex application for iOS drop to zero. He asked Apple and received the following answer:

We periodically review the apps in the iAd Network to ensure that all apps receiving ads are aligned with the needs of our advertisers. Currently, our advertisers prefer that their advertising not appear in applications that are targeted for users that are young children, since their products are not targeted at that audience.

Apple Changes Its App Policy, Focuses On The Quality, Not Quantity



itunes-app-store

Recently Apple has made changes to its app policy and focused on making the iOS App Store the most attractive rather than simply the biggest.

Lately the company has banned the idea of "incentivized app installs", which was used by certain game developers to prompt players to install other apps if they want to continue playing. Because of the incentives some apps become artificially popular and don’t reflect the actual situation in top games chart, for instance.

Apple is rumored to announce the new Final Cut Pro on April 12th during the 10th annual SuperMeet. Canon, Avid, and Autodesk will not be presenting on the event.

Moreover Final Cut author Larry Jordan  writes on his blog:

I’ve Seen The New Version of Final Cut Pro… and it’s a jaw-dropper. Last week, Apple invited a few folks, including me, to a short meeting in Cupertino where they previewed the up-coming version of Final Cut Pro. While I am under NDA and can’t talk about what I saw, I CAN tell you the meeting happened and that it showcased the new Final Cut Pro.

Apple Releases Mac OS X Lion Developer Preview 2



LION_PREVIEW_2-thumb

Yesterday Apple released the second developer preview of Maс OS X Lion for testing purposes.
