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...

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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...

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?

so technically you like to make fun of what your daughter loves? you know kids love RC cars and aircrafts too, so by your said logic you hate that too right? Make your daughter proud, get an iPhone ;) :P

Yeah, like ICS to Jellybean LOL

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.

Well I don't have any problems with the OS it self
But I do hate the fact that AirDrop don't work on the IPhone 4S
Does anyone knows why?

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.

Cause apple is horrible the only way you can transfers pics from your phone to a friends with out a computer are from apps other people designed cause apple isnt smart enough to give the customer what they want. Try an app called BUMP it works great even to send to an android
