IOS7 Beta 4: Place Fingerprint to Unlock
Reception for the highly anticipated iOS 7 is vastly a mixed bag. Some love it, some loathe it and some just are not bothered as long as they have the latest iPhone with them. Almost like a German railway timetable, betas rolled out in intervals of two weeks sharp. However, due to the Apple developer website outrage that lasted for 8 days; the launch of the beta was delayed by a whole week. That is acceptable because the beta did spill some rather exciting beans on what can we expect in the upcoming iPhone(s).
Beta 3 witnessed a lot of major cosmetic enhancements; most evidently the sharper font that has been used throughout the system. Other prominent interface enhancements included tweaks in the UI of Calendar, App Store and Music app amongst others thus creating novel opportunities in iPhone app development. Also included were enhanced folder transparencies for the home screen and a rather well functioning in-built dictionary app; much like the ones preloaded in the iMac.
Beta 4 reviews have again been a mixed bag, particularly for those who are design conscious. The latest release includes substantial UI refreshes, including a new icon for the slide to unlock bar, a new call screen, with round buttons, new minimalist call answer buttons, repositioning of the HDR button in the camera app and a changed way of applying filters inbuilt in the camera app. Several beta users also report of minor tweaks in the QWERTY keyboard.
The beta now includes an option to search in the reminders panel via spotlight. Also now exists an option to swipe panels labeled ‘Today’, ‘All’ and ‘Missed’ in the reminders section, seemingly handy. On a lesser exciting note, you can now set up a completely new Apple TV product using your iOS 7 device.
Now for the exciting part. The oddly persistent rumor of having an embedded fingerprint scanner to unlock the phone seems to have found a rather solid backing; as the build shipped with, amongst others, a ‘BiometricKitUI’ bundle.
iPhone app development is definitely something to look into, especially for enterprises and businesses, big and small alike. This, for two important reasons; one obviously being convenience; and the other being that the youth is highly judgmental about how technologically advanced a particular corporation is. If it does have an app in the app store, there is an immediate change in perspective.
Apps Developers Australia (SDI) has aced the iPhone app development forefront ever since the first iPhone hit the shelves in 2007. They have consistently been ranked #1 in iPhone app development for entrepreneurs, small businesses and even heavyweight enterprise customers, including Pepsi, Marvel, Stanford University and even Louis Vuitton. They make beautiful apps with a commendable UX; often sprucing it up with social media integration. For quality apps, they are generally the first and last stop amongst corporations and businesspersons alike.
