NYPD to iPhone owners: Hurry up and download iOS 7

NYPD to iPhone owners: Hurry up and download iOS 7 | Life @ Work | Scoop.it

Morgan Kroes's curator insight, September 27, 2013 2:55 PM

I think that is a good idea that the police are trying to help out, because Find My iPhone is actually a really big help. If someone steals your phone, they can use technology to turn it off. But iOS 7 makes it more difficult to turn that off, so that's very useful.

Margaret Kooser's comment, September 27, 2013 2:57 PM
I'm glad that the IPhone made it harder for criminals to be found. I also think it was good for the NYPD to hand out fliers so that people can understand it better. But at the same time they basically just let all of the criminals of New York know that it is going to be harder for them to turn it off, but it is possible.

On Eve Of iOS 7 Launch, Apple Starts Letting Users Install Last Compatible Versions Of Apps | Life @ Work | Scoop.it
iOS 7 is the biggest change to Apple's mobile OS since it was born all the way back in 2007. The risk for Apple now is that the OS redesign disrupts its own user-base, so here’s one sign of how Cupertino is managing the change: it’s updated the App Store to offer a prompt to iOS devices that aren’t compatible with the latest version/s of iOS enabling them to download the “last compatible version” of the app.
