The long wait for iOS 10 finally ended this morning when Apple unleashed its huge software update on the world, but instead of getting a ton of new features, some iPad and iPhone owners report their devices have been bricked.
Ahead of next week’s iPhone 7 launch, Apple has finally gotten around to activating an official @Apple Twitter account, which has already attracted 130K followers — despite not sending a single tweet yet.
Apple first registered the @Apple Twitter handle back in September 2011, around the time of the iPhone 4s launch, although the account was not live until now.
Apple’s next big venture could be to go head-to-head with Snapchat and similar content-sharing services. The company is expected to integrate new video features into iOS that would be developed by the engineers behind Final Cut and iMovie.
But is this a good idea? Apple failed miserably when it tried to take on social networks before, and some would argue that many of its products already suffer as a result of its expansion into new areas.
Join us in this week’s Friday Night Fight as we battle it out over whether Apple is wasting its time trying to fight Snapchat.
Twitter has inked a deal with the NFL that will allow it to live-stream content to iOS and later the Apple TV. It’s thought the company has paid around $10 million to stream ten games — all of which are Thursday night fixtures.
