At the end of the day, these negative rumors will strengthen the resolve of the Maps team. People are getting numb on these FUDs too. We will see more updates along the way since the OS seeding has started. And we don't even know about the h/w yet other than the same old tired iPhone 6 case photos.
They acquired quite a few companies to work on Maps. It is natural for multiple parties to take time to consolidate. These pieces may be done on completely different tech and approaches. Those who are impatient will leave early, citing all sorts of excuses and reasons. I have seen it happen in many startups. You can't prevent it since it's their nature. The rest will move forward. They may also want to build on top of Metal (for A7 devices), and other newer iOS8 tech. I...
My guess is: security, potential interference and power saving.Since this thing is peer to peer, they may have to scan the surrounding continuously for new devices showing up.This sucks power if it is always-on.They may need to add iBeacon to the stack for its low power BT discovery.Perhaps next release. Just like how AirPlay adds BT discovery and then peer-to-peer over 2 releases. I remember they had some unexpected BT vs WiFi bug on the Mac some months ago. Plus this new...
I thought the same until I remember that AirDrop works entirely locally. If you are out in the field without WiFi router, this will beat DropBox and similar services.
Apple supports HTTP Live Streaming in HTML5 video tag, which is smarter than MSE, EME and WebCrypto because it runs natively, and are aware of the client's h/w runtime.What the MSE stack adds is giving more control to the streaming providers. They will have to recreate the entire HLS adaptive streaming logic using JavaScript.The providers can tweak their JS code to address their customers' nuances without Apple's help.
How efficient is it ? Silverlight was MS's product and it sucks a lot of juice for doing the same thing.
It matters to set the history straight. Credits where credits are due.Advancing technologies is great but it doesn't mean people can accuse Apple for copying Android for some random argument.We should be able to learn more about how iOS parts fit together in WWDC.Optional keyboard, widgets and Hey Siri may not be important individually, but putting them together, it will speak about Apple's approach, direction, and overall experiences.The way they highlight OSX, iOS and...
These extensions work with other iOS technologies to provide iOS-flavored security. They will need to share data with various components, not to mention the front most app and its own bundled app. I think it is more than meet the eyes. Otherwise Apple won't have to wait so long to introduce them. The sessions will likely reveal more. It is premature to say Apple copy Android. They may evolve from Mac and OSX instead. After all, widgets and extensions are faily old...
Not to mention the user has full control over the data on the device. HealthKit provides a uniform framework for everyone to work together.
If it is slow, it's likely they run on different networks or even operated by different parties.I wonder if the recent Apple CDN rumor will help address it. They may need to "own" and upgrade more of the infrastructure to improve the QoS. That and the SMS/MMS side fixes (for non-iOS users) seem unavoidable.
