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.

Will iPad mini lack Retina displays?



It is rumored that Apple is testing a new iPad Mini with an A6 processor but without a Retina display. It is proved by a hidden file that lists all supported iOS 7 devices.

According to this information, Apple will be launching three new iPad mini models: iPad “2,8,” iPad “2,9,” and iPad “2,10.” The devices ill be called J75, J76, and J77 respectively. One of the three models will support only WiFi connection, while two others will be cellular-compatible. (just like the current iPad minis). The internal nomenclature for these iPads follows the current iPad minis, which are iPad “2,5,” iPad “2,6,” and iPad “2,7.”

The new iPad minis will boast a s5l8950x processor. It has the same A6 chip as current iPhone 5. It is a shame that the coming iPads minis will lack "@2x" hooks to higher resolution images. Thus it may be assumed that they will not have a Retina display.
