Take a moment and ask yourself this question: Which Cydia tweaks could Apple implement in a future version of iOS that would remove your desire to jailbreak? I’m totally fine with jailbreaking, but if there was a perfect combination of features and tweaks for iOS, what would they be? Join in on all the fun and be sure to let us know what you think in the comments.
This week we take some time to discuss the rumors surrounding a redesigned flat version of iOS. Jony Ive has taken over UI design for iOS and this could mean that iOS 7 gets a complete redesign. Would a Metro style iOS 7 work? I’m worried about a new design, but I guess we’ll all have to wait for its unveiling at WWDC 2013.
Would you pay $600,000 for a cup of coffee with Tim Cook? No? Yes? Personally, I think that’s insane, but it is for a good cause. All of the proceeds are being donated to a charity, but still, that’s a lot of money for a Venti Mocha Frappuccino. Also, it’s possible we might see updated MacBooks at WWDC this year. In other news, some exciting Cydia tweaks have recently been released.
If you’re the type that wears a tinfoil hat, you should probably stop using Siri. Apparently, Apple saves clips of your voice on a server for up to two years to analyze and help improve “other products and services.” While it doesn’t bother us I’m sure there are some people who will freak out because of this. We also get into some regurgitated iPhone 5S and iPad 5 rumors.
Samsung recently announce the Galaxy Mega series of phones. At first, I thought a 6.3-inch phone was a joke, but it’s definitely real. In my opinion, Samsung is really close to having phones that are too big, but what do you think? I would look like an idiot holding an iPad mini to my face … what’s the difference?
Why does Apple hate physical gaming controllers? It seems that any controller SDK or device never makes it too mainstream. Sure, there’s iCade controllers, but I’m talking about console-style gaming. Give us analog joysticks and tactile feedback, Apple. I’ve seen quite a few gaming controllers come and go, but if this is something all of us want so bad, why is it so hard to keep alive?
Apple has recently purchased a company called WiFiSLAM that has some pretty interesting technology. WiFiSLAM created indoor location-based friend finding technology that Apple may leverage in iOS 7. Also, some new rumors have surfaced involving the iPhone 5S and low-cost iPhone. Join us for another fun-filled episode of The ‘A’ Word as we discuss all the juice and rumors in the world of Apple.
