It’s Here!! It’s Here!! iOS 7 Is Here!!

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013 | Author:

iOS 7Well, the moment you’ve been waiting for since WWDC is here: iOS 7 is now available for download!

But before you upgrade your iDevice, make sure it’ll work on your model; nothing will put the brakes on iOS-Mania faster than finding out it won’t work for you.

iOS 7 is compatible with the following: 

  • iPhone 4 and later
  • iPad 2 and later, including the iPad mini
  • 5th Generation iPod touch.

If your device is listed above, you’re ready to upgrade! If your device skews to the “older” end of this spectrum, however, you should keep in mind that some features (like newer camera options and Siri) may not be available.

To upgrade, first upgrade iTunes to the latest version vis Software Update. Then, simply connect your iDevice to your computer, open iTunes, make a backup of your data, and then go ahead and click that Upgrade button.

And, while you’re waiting to upgrade your software with the latest and greatest, why not do the same for your hardware and check out the Newer Technology NuGuard KX case.

Apple Event Unleashes iOS5 and iPhone 4S

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011 | Author:

Many around the OWC offices have been waiting with bated breath for today’s iPhone announcement. Like most Apple announcements, there have been a lot of rumors swirling around this event: the iPhone 5, iPhones on Sprint, iPod Touch spec bumps, iOS5’s “Assistant” feature, and even the cancellation of the iPod Shuffle and/or Classic.

Well, now we’ve got the goods on what’s new, what’s coming, and what were just fantastic pipe dreams, So without any further ado, let’s take a look at what’s we saw.

This keynote started out similar to most others, with new CEO Tim Cook talking about Apple’s forward momentum, including bits about the new Apple Stores in Asia, Lion’s adoption rate compared to Windows 7, overall growth in the Mac market, iPod’s dominance in the PMP market, and iTunes remaining the number one music store in the world.

Cook then gave us a few numbers showing the increasing dominance of the iPhone and iPad in the market. We heard about how 5% of the world’s mobile phones are an iPhone, 74% of tablets sold are iPads and that over 250 million iOS have been devices sold.

This was vaguely interesting information if you’re an Apple shareholder, an “industry” reporter, or someone who just wants to sit there and go “Woooo!!!! We’re Number One!!!!” But the reason we most people tuned in to the various webcasts and liveblogs (bringing many of them down in the process) was for the new hardware and software that we’d learn about today.
