The Ultimate Guide to Solving iOS Battery Drain - Overthought - 2 views

  •  
    "I worked on the Genius Bar for almost two years, and the most difficult issue to solve was short battery life. It was extremely difficult to pinpoint the exact reason why someone's battery was draining. I made it my mission to discover the specific reasons for iOS battery drainage. This article is a product of my years of research and anecdotal evidence I gathered in the hundreds of Genius Bar appointments I took during my time as a Genius and iOS technician, as well as testing on my personal devices and the devices of my friends."

This Little-Known iOS Feature Will Change the Way We Connect | Gadget Lab | WIRED - 1 views

  •  
    "The idea behind FireChat is simple. It's a chatting app. After registering with a name - no email address or other personal identifiers required - you're dropped into a fast-moving chatroom of "Everyone" using it in your country. The interesting aspect, however, is the "Nearby" option. Here, the app uses Apple's Multipeer Connectivity framework, essentially a peer-to-peer feature that lets you share messages (and soon photos) with other app users nearby, regardless of whether you have an actual Wi-Fi or cellular connection."

Apple Just Ended the Era of Paid Operating Systems | Wired Business | Wired.com - 0 views

  •  
    "The desktop operating system is dead as a major profit center, and Apple just delivered the obituary. Amid a slew of incremental improvements to its iPad tablets and MacBook laptops, Apple today announced some landmark news about its oldest surviving operating system: It will not charge for the latest big upgrade, Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks, breaking from a tradition that goes back 16 years and shining a light on a long-unfolding reversal in how tech profits are made. Eighteen years ago, the tech industry's dominant company made nearly half its revenue selling OS licenses. Now, as Apple just confirmed, the prices of OS licenses are headed towards zilch."

iOS 7 Updates Look a Little Too Familiar to Some Apple Developers - 0 views

  •  
    "Stephen Orth wondered why Apple didn't use the metadata in photos to better organize pictures in the iPhoto app so, last September, he started developing an app of his own in his spare time to do just that. The result was Photowerks, a 99-cent iPhone app released last month, which lets users sort their photos by date and location.

    "I always thought it sounded strange that Apple didn't do that in its photo app," Orth told Mashable in an interview. "I figured it was just a matter of time before they did do it.""

iOS 7 vs iOS 6 Side-by-Side Visual Comparisons - 4 views

  •  
    "iOS 7 brings a significant user interface overhaul to Apple's mobile devices, and though it's best to be experienced and used first hand, screen shots can do a fair job of demonstrating the differences. If you're not a developer and can't use the beta releases yourself, then comparing iOS 7 to iOS 6 side-by-side can give an appreciation for the changes ahead, so we rounded up a few comparisons of the home screens, common apps and app interfaces like Notifications, Siri, Messages, Mail, multitasking, and Weather, and also a large side-by-side chart showing the differences between icons in both iOS versions. Take a look."

    How to Bring Podcasts Back Into The Music App in iOS 6 | MacTrast

    "One of the changes Apple made in iOS 6 was the removal of podcasts from the Music app, releasing a separate stand-alone Podcasts app instead. While some people preferred this approach, other people hate the change, and just want all of their audio in one place!"
