Though Apple is allegedly reassigning personnel to expedite development of iOS 7, the next-generation mobile operating system for iPhone and iPad will still meet the company's internal deadlines, according to a new report. The details come from anonymous sources who spoke with John Paczkowski of All Things D. They likened the current atmosphere at Apple to when the company moved some of its Mac software engineers, at the time working on OS X 10.5 Leopard, to the iPhone team ahead of the first-generation handset's launch.While the situation is similar, the company's current efforts to finish iOS 7 are "not as much of a fire drill," one source reportedly said. They added: "It will ship on time." From what Paczkowski was told, iOS 7 promises to be a "pretty big update" for Apple's mobile operating system. Apple will show off iOS 7 at this year's Worldwide Developers Conference, the company has publicly confirmed.
"Evidently the spartan, elegant aesthetic that (head designer Jony) Ive has developed around Apple's hardware is now being brought to bear on its software, as well," Wednesday's report indicated.Singled out was the felt casino-style table design featured in Apple's Game Center software. One source indicated that the "Circus Circus" look would disappear.The report reaffirms much of what was reported earlier Wednesday by Bloomberg, which revealed that Ive is overseeing "dramatic changes" to the iOS platform. That report pointed to the native Calendar and Mail applications as items that might see a significant shakeup. A target of Ive's is said to be the "skeuomorphic" design embraced by his predecessor, Scott Forstall, who previously oversaw iOS development. Skeumorphism refers to design elements that are made to resemble real-life objects, such as the leather texture employed in Apple's Find My Friends application.
While the earlier report stoked concern that the apparent sweeping changes to iOS 7 could cause delays, All Things D's sources sugges
AAPL continue to add more carriers
For every one selling there ate buyers. They hold 10M ? Aapl can buy from them all no one cares. Someone bought 4.5M at the close friday Aapl issued a 17B$ they hold just 4B so Aapl can take their part. They don't like it? Sell it back to Aapl losers
did Aapl announced a timetable for the iOS 7 ? Again the one to break it I'd Reauters isn't that a coincidence. Aapl is damned if theyake changes and damned if not that is so frustrating this rumor mill acting like a pinksheet stock. Someone our there out to heart Aapl. It is always an unnamed source.
Trump this guy and i won't be surprised to see also Buffett in the future and Gundlach say no buyers.
the Russian billionaire that done 10x on Is Facebook investment bets on Aapl shares. Invests 100M in Aapl. Usmanov wealth is 19.8B $$. He also made money in alibaba. I believe in the future of Aapl even after Steve Jobs. When the company lost more than 100B$ of its value it was a good time to buy. There is your buyers Gundlach.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
What a pathetic CNBC Breaking idiotic news
In a tweet today, Donald Trump claims to own “a lot” of Apple stock and that he misses Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Trump states flatly, “Tim Cook must immediately increase the size of the screen…” Trump’s tweet provides a link to his Facebook page which expands his thoughts thusly:
…on the iPhone. It should be slightly larger than the Samsung screen- and they better get it right fast because they will lose a lot of business. I like the larger screen.
Comeon that is pathetic he say not expensive and still overowned b***s AAPL is no more number one on the funds names for alot they sold months ago. Goog is overowned MSFT is at any fund so what the hell this guy wants.He has no interest in AAPL so give us a break from that b***s
Goog now is more overowned than AAPL yet no one complains
This what Tim Cook said : Our teams are hard at work on some amazing new hardware and services we can’t wait introduce this fall and throughout 2014
He said again new hardware and new services iPhone 5S is not suppose to be a new hardware if it maintain the 4" screen. Why also we heard 2-3 weeks ago the Foxconn hiring a 10K people per week for the iPhone 5S again why if the build up will be in Sep or Oct.
it looks like a new maybe iPhone 6 in the fall a new design a iWatch a iTV iRadio but that doesnt say that AAPL wont come up like rumored with iPhone 5S in the summer an iPhone 5S is not supposed to be a new hardeware like Tim said that AAPL won't build junk plastic product for the high end markets
Samsung’s Galaxy S4 Android phone “has taken a fair bit of flak for its physical design,” John Paczkowski reports for AllThingsD. AllThingsD’s Walt Mossberg said the Galaxy S4′s ‘plastic body felt a bit insubstantial,’ and The Verge complained about its ‘unpleasant, cheap design,’” Paczkowski reports. “Now, consumer electronics warranty provider SquareTrade says that according to its breakability tests, the device is actually more fragile than both its predecessor, the Galaxy S3, and its archrival, Apple’s iPhone 5.”Paczkowski reports, “As CEO Tim Cook said last week, ‘Our competitors have made some significant trade-offs in many of these areas in order to ship a larger display. We would not ship a larger display iPhone while these trade-offs exist.
