    “Expecting” said technology is just silly.

     

    And again, remember my other false concern about more RAMs when Safari will crash on an iPhone 5s in 2015.


     

    It’s called RAM. And good luck crashing Safari out of beta!

     
    I am just trying to say that iPhone 5s is like a trial, incomplete version of iPhone 6.

     

    And you’re completely and utterly wrong about that, is all.

    Fingerprint and Touch ID are getting a lot of traction in the news these days as Apple is set to roll out the new iphone 5S with this biometric add-on on September 20th. Touch ID will all but eliminate the need for passwords and pins when using your iphone 5s. But, what happens if you don't have the new phone? What options do users who have an Android, Blackberry or Microsoft device or a iphone 4s, 5 or even new 5c have available to them? EyeVerify!

    EyeVerify is the exclusive provider of Eyeprint Verification, a highly accurate biometric
    for mobile devices. Eyeprint Verification delivers a password-free mobile experience and secure authentication at a glance. This patented solution uses existing cameras on smartphones to image and pattern match the blood vessels in the whites of the eyes. Best of all, you can get this technology right now for your existing device as long as your device has a 1 mega pixel camera.

    Apple%u2019s TouchID and the Eyeprint accomplish the same ultimate end goal. It is an accurate, secure & simple way to answer the question "Who is holding the phone?" Eyeprint Verification just happens to be more accessible to more of the population trying to solve the password problem.

    Who told you that? I highly doubt that.


     


    I doubt it too, but I hope it's true.  One small step closer to thief proof.

    Here's hoping to be surprised. They already did that with the '5 fingerprint attempts will require passcode/PW' change.

    1) You think that Apple did not wish to make a better resolution screen.
    Even the companies who already make full HD screens wish to make their screens even better. Apple also wishes but they are still following. They just couldn't do it yet which is okey, iPhone has a good resolution.

    2) What do you mean by "good luck crashing Safari out of beta"? My English isn't native, did not understand.
    3) I still think that iPhone 5s is a try, it will give helpful clues for iPhone 6 which will make a surprise. I think iPhone 6 will be a very serious attempt aimed for users who use other platforms. It will be a good test for Apple.

    Thanks for reading my posts anyway, I learn from people whom I discuss, there are lots of things I don't know about tech and electronics and that's why I registered here, I hope my ideas are not offending anyone and sorry if I was rude. I respect companies like Apple which work hard and make quality devices. I own a 4th gen iPod touch. I like it a lot. I never concidered buying an iPhone though...An iPod plus any cheaper smartphone that supports being a Wi-Fi hot spot is a combination that serves me for 1 and half years.

    With all the hubbub about the Clock icon not displaying the actual time (it now does in iOS 7), where is similar outrage over the static Compass icon? What with the new M7, this should one of those details Apple is famous for not overlooking. Right?

    I don’t! Apple has created a retina screen, which to them means that a user can’t the see individual pixels thereon. Since this is the case, increasing the resolution does nothing for the user or the phone and only serves to shorten battery life.

    Oh, no worries. I mean to say that Safari as commercial software is very stable and is difficult to crash. When it is in beta–when it is connected to a prerelease copy of OS X or iOS–that’s an entirely different story. Mountain Lion DP2’s Safari, if I remember correctly, crashed dozens of times a day. But when Mountain Lion was released, Safari was steady as a rock.

    At this point, I think so, too. Just not in the way we might all expect.

    I'll definitely vouch for this.  Until yesterday I was using the final prerelease of iOS7 on my iPhone, the gold master, which still had rafts of problems with Safari crashing on multiple actions.  Annoyingly I wasn't able to upgrade to the actual release via software update (not sure if that's the same for everyone else, it was telling me I was on the latest version), so I did a download of the release and a full restore yesterday.

     

    Now Safari is smooth as silk.

     

    Now for the iPad (which is even worse for crash-happiness).

    I hadn't even noticed that!  Somewhat redundant, given the clock in the top bar, but a nice touch I suppose.  Not sure that there's all that much utility in the M7 repeatedly polling the sensor so that the app icon can live update (the clock is always running anyway), but I guess some people might find it useful.
