iOS-7-close-up

iOS 8 is just around the corner and, if the iOS 7 figures are any indicator, it’s likely to find near-total adoption.

Apple just released the latest figures for its current-generation operating system, saying iOS 7 is running on a massive 90 percent of devices. iOS 6, meanwhile, stands at just 9 percent, while earlier versions of iOS represent a minuscule 2 percent combined. iOS 7 was launched 10 months ago in September 2013, making it the fastest-adopted mobile OS in history.

Mysterious iPhone 6 running iOS 7 hacked together from leaked parts

iPhone-6-Clone-03

The Chinese are so good at cloning Apple’s upcoming products that they regularly release fully functional doppelgangers of the next iPhone before Apple has even officially announced it. But these are ‘clones’ in only the vaguest sense, because they always have one major problem: they run Android, not iOS.

But that’s not true with this iPhone 6 clone. Although it looks exactly like an iPhone 6, it appears to be running iOS 7, not Android.

There’s also support for third-party widgets in Today View, as well as interactive notifications and the ability to individually dismiss notifications that are no longer applicable.

They are all good changes, but unfortunately, you need to wait until September to make use of them… that is, unless you have a jailbroken phone, in which case, a simple tweak is all you need to get an iOS 8-style Notification Center today.

Screen Shot 2014-06-23 at 8.34.57 AM

Let’s face it: We all have some photos on our iPhones or iPads we don’t exactly want other people seeing. When I hand my mother my iPhone to show her photos of my honeymoon in Turkey, there are some photos taken on that trip I don’t want her swiping to.

In iOS 8, you have the option to hide the photos you don’t want other people seeing in the Camera Roll, but it’s clunky and the photos still show up in other albums. A much better solution is Don’t Swipe.
