Apple Profiles Apps Used To Create Its ‘Powerful’ New Ad

iphone from apple 1398288718 1923885567 Apple’s Greater China Revenue Grew Sequentially In Q2 As iPhone Growth Impresses + MOREApple has a new ad out that you may have seen, featuring a track by The Pixies and a whole lot of iPhone users employing mobile software to cover the song. The ad harkens back to earlier Apple ads where people used a variety of software from the App Store to have fun with their devices, and as such represents a pretty strong return to form.I’ll forgive them the obligatory dusk-on-the-desert-young-people-shooting-off-bottle-rockets shot that seems to make its way into most ads aimed at Millennials or younger these days, because the rest of the spot presents people doing stuff with their iPhones that I actually wouldn’t mind emulating. Apple anticipated that, of course, and created a micro-site to go along with the ad that offers a look at and links to each of six apps featured prominently in the video (which Apple officially refers to as a ‘film,’ by the by).
The apps in question are Star Walk, Instant Heart Rate, Word Lens, AmpliTube, Luminair, and Pacific Rim. They cover a wide range of features and functions, including one that you may have thought was exclusive to Samsung’s Galaxy S5 (Instant Heart Rate). Apple’s promotional pushes almost always seem to come with microsites these days, but that’s smart – giving ads an endpoint for further engagement makes a lot of sense when you’re generating buzz and want to do more than just fritter that away.

Apple Releases iOS 7.1.1 With Touch ID Improvements

- techcrunch.com

iphone 3 1398196967 137426198 Apple pushes OS X security update, Safari 7.0.3 + MOREApple has released a new update to iOS 7 today, a minor point update with bug fixes and improvements. One such improvement beefs up Touch ID performance, which should mean better recognition of fingerprints registered with your iPhone 5s device. Some users had cited a gradual worsening of the Touch ID sensor’s ability to recognize existing fingerprints, so hopefully this clears that up for those who were having trouble.Apple had previously been reported to have been preparing a software update to improve this so-called “fade” problem, according to AppleInsider, so it isn’t surprising to see it show up. There’s also a bug fix that should make the iOS keyboard more responsive, according to the software’s release notes, as well as a fix for an issue that affects the use of Bluetooth keyboards when the VoiceOver user accessibility feature is enabled.
To update your device, simply check out the Software Update submenu in Setting on your device or plug it into your computer and open iTunes.
