Apple update iOS 6.1.2


In line with rumours from last week, Apple has just released the iOS 6.1.2 update, which addresses a Microsoft Exchange bug. Users can update their devices to iOS 6.1.2 Over the Air or via iTunes.

Federico Viticci of MacStories points out that the update appears iOS 6.1.2 also fixes the passcode bug that was discovered last week (by following the steps to reproduce the old bug, the iPhone now simply gives a black screen/keypad instead of jumping to Phone/Contacts).

iWatch de la Apple


Former Apple executive Jean-Louis Gassée shares his perspective on Apple’s rumored “iWatch”, noting that the company likely has very ambitious plans for the device given its focus on continually pushing forward the concept of a “personal computer”.

[W]hat really floats their [boats], what hardens Apple’s resolve is designing, making, and selling large numbers of personal computers, from the traditional desktop/laptop Mac, to the genre-validating iPad, and on to the iPhone — the Very Personal Computer. Everything else is an ingredient, a booster, a means to the noblest end.
After walking through how Apple’s iTunes Store, retail effort, software, and Apple TV all serve as ancillary offerings to support this positioning of the company’s primary products as increasingly personal computers, Gassée argues that the iWatch is the next step in this progression and thus Apple will do much more than simply slap a previous-generation iPod nano into a wristband.
Is Apple working on an iWatch that can be experienced as an Even More Personal personal computer — an “intimate computer”? If so, many questions arise: user interface, sensors, iOS version, new types of apps, connection with other iDevices… And, of course price.

This would be much more interesting than the perennially in-the-future Apple TV set. Of course, iWatch and Apple TV aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive.
Gassée’s piece comes just as British newspaper The Observer has produced its own mockup of what an iWatch might look like given claims of Apple using Corning’s bendable Willow Glass for the device.
There is no reason to believe that The Observer has any more insight into the strongly rumored Apple research project than anyone else, but the graphics which accompany the article reproduced on the sister-paper Guardian website do give an interesting feel for the difference a curved glass display could make to a smart watch and the article offers an overview of how Apple might fit into the smart watch market still in its infancy.

Apple in pregatirile pentru lansarea noului Iphone si a iOS ver 6.0

Conform Techcrunch


If you’ve been paying attention at all, you know that the next iPhone is right around the corner. Apple has sent out invites to a September 12 event — that’s on Wednesday, by the way — just as we’ve long expected.

The event is to be held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, which just so happens to be located right next to the hotel we’re staying at for Disrupt (Hackathon begins today, by the way). In proper Apple fashion, the company has already begun preparation for the announcement event, hanging a massive Apple banner outside of the huge event center.

The banner has the same rainbow-flavored background that Apple’s been using for a while for its events.

The next iPhone will no doubt make a big splash. It’s got a larger screen, marking the first time that Apple has ventured from the 3.5-inch sweet spot. It’ll also have a new, smaller mini-port, along with a two-tone metal backplate and possibly NFC.

We reported earlier this month that Apple will release the next iPhone on September 21, and things seem to be matching up well for this.

iOS 6 va fi prezentat oficial la WWDC 2012

@SteveStreza has been haunting the Moscone West convention center in San Francisco the past few days and zapped some photos to the good folks at MacStories.net. As just about everybody on the planet expected, iOS 6 will be announced at WWDC 2012 as these photos of the big new banners on the first floor indicate.

Streza and MacStories were kind enough to give us permission to run these photos, which are sure to stir up more excitement. Streza also noted that banners on the second floor of Moscone West tout Messages, Notification Center, and Game Center for Mac.
