iOS 7 Preview

0. phoneArena 17 Sep 2013, 08:24 posted on

Apple has announced that iOS 7 is coming this fall, but how can one just stand here and wait? We mean, boy it's painful! And knowing that there's actually a way of getting the iOS 7 beta 1 that is currently available to developers, we decided to go ahead and install the thing on an iPhone 5...

Apple claim that they put a lot of effort into iOS 7, but apart multitasking they have done nothing significant. Apart multitasking they have changed only "skin" of iOS 6 and I think that the new "skin" is totally fail, I think that iOS 6 user interface was better than new one. And I think that Android OS is still better!

Right, even their new multitasking is the same old preemptive pseudo-multithreading one. They just extended its usability to 3rd party apps and gave it a WebOS-like ui.
iOS7 is nothing more than an Android/MIUI wannabe on acid!

F*ck yea couldn't agree with you more! The bokeh-ish background, the icons and some of the font looks like a MIUI-ice cream sandwich rip-off.

Everything is OK but changing icons was extremely bad idea.

It's called RETRO THEMED.. Clothing, music, almost everything is turning back to time, I think it's a good move, but the icons, it's inconsistent..

Too vibrant. Flat is one thing but the colors are really loud right now, and not in a good way.

I think the funniest bit of it is how long it will take all the app makers to redo their icons to fit the new theme. You're going to have a hodge-podge of styles for a good long while.

Mistakes based on what? Yours and the majority of PA's sanctimoniousness users? When people tend to heed other people's thoughts, opinions, actions, and feelings it becomes one capacious statement that everyone begins to use or believe. The only one's who contradict their selves are the "sheep" that tend to breed against the favored or spoken party that favors the category that is being spoken of.

no the comment is not right and exact. Just like in the movies the Dark Jedi always fails so does your comment. The company has been losing millions since steve jobs died. They were so far in the black that it will take atleast another 10 yrs before you see any real damage. But facts are check the stocks you will see it has been going down month after month and android is taking over the maket share and since begining of 2013 android has sold more phones worldwide.

Half the people on PA who poke and mock at Apples stock and praise Androids, Samsungs, and others rising stock (so to say) don't even know what the hell the stock market is, how it functions, and can not even analyze the data. Stop shëping everyone else and start using proper facts to deal proper insults.

When your stock drops after you unveil your new product, and investors walk out of a meeting upset, then there is a problem... Its is proper fact.

If you can't see that/don't know that a stock dropping almost 40% is a problem for ANY company then you clearly know nothing about business.

A store of money will not last forever if you're company is not bringing enough in to replenish it... It's not really rocket science it's simple math...

iHate apple less than iHate the arrogance of iFans and ya, iM not a fan of how Apple does business. Ya know, offering less for more, highest possible margins, lowest possible tech return. iMean really Apple, the ridiculously overpriced iPad, 3 years later and coming up on 5 releases has never sen a price cut? Ya, $5-800 for a iPad is embarrassingly overpriced then and now. Just not a iFan sorry

Arrogance of iFans? This coming from someone who obviously has no idea what he's talking about. When the iPad launched, it was the first tablet to hit the market below $1000, and it listed at $499 for the 16GB. Overpriced? They're considered overpriced now because Google had to come with a much lower price point to even compete, and still can't match the quality of the iPad. Yet the Surface R/T launched at $499, the Nexus 10 at $499, the HP Touchpad at $499, the Blackberry Playbook at $499. Overpriced? Call out Google, Microsoft, HP/Palm, and Blackberry first before trying to be cool and jump on the "Hate Apple bandwagon".

Also, it sounds to me you've never used a Macbook Pro. My Macbook Pro Retina blows away any Windows laptop I've ever owned, and I've owned ones that had much higher specs, yet I'd take my "overpriced" Macbook anyday over Windows laptops. Not only do I run OS X, but I also run Windows 8 using Parallels. Not only is using my Macbook pure joy in terms of the quality of the keyboard, trackpad, screen, etc. the reliability is second to none with their warranty program. NO Windows laptop even comes close. So overpriced is all relative.

I would take a Surface over and iPad any day...one big reason...practicality and user experience. Now PC vs Mac(agaaain)...for the price of a Mac you buy a laptop with miles better specs that the Mac, and you are talking anout user experience? Windows is more capable, more practical and powerful that OS X...And yes, you could run a Hack-intosh too...but why would you do that?

I'm pretty sure he's talking about most Android Tablets having HD screens, expandable memory, etc etc and the iPad not having them. I dunno about you but, I prefer to not pay the same or more for less. I'm pretty sure appleDOESNT.com was probably talking about the same things.

The rest of your statements about the Laptops are very opinionated. So what's your point?

Dark, their egos and values are obviously damaged by Apple and Apple's community. Nothing better to do than hop on the Apple Hate Bandwagon and continue acting like shëp in their own way. They all talk about shëp and the act of acting like a shëp, yet all they do is shëp eachothers ideas and suck off eachother in one big circle because they have nothing better to do than inflate their deflated Android social bubbles.

The new multi-tasking is an exact rip off from android all the way down to swiping away the app to close it. Only thing diferent is it still doesnt do true multi-tasking. And the images on the phone looks like a 3rd grader designed it

ICS to Jellybean is really android 4.0 to android 4.1. It wasn't expected to be a big jump. See the difference between gingerbread (android 2.0 )to ICS (4.0). A big jump.

iOS increases their number by 1 (instead of 0.1) regardless of what they update every year. See iOS 5 and iOS 6. There wasn't any groundbreaking features. Surely it should have been iOS 5.3 or something like that.

Just iPhone 5, iPod Touch 5g and all other new devices have a new network chip build in. airdrop needs this network chip. that ist why airdrop don't work on the iPhone 4S.

Or is just a planned obsolescence. I remember that multi touch was not available on iPad 1st gen, but if you change a few lines in iOs code, it just works perfectly (with not a single lag).

Um, what? I have an original iPad and it registeres all 10 of my fingers with no changes to the device. And "not a single lag" is the crappiest grammar you could possibly use. Please get your facts right before making a fool of yourself.
