In the case of Apple and iOS 8, it&rsquo;s that those users who hadn&rsquo;t updated yet are widely resisting the move.</p> <p>Within the first few days of release, Apple&rsquo;s stats showed that 46% of active iOS device owners had upgraded to iOS 8 - an especially impressive number, given that the iPhone 4 was lopped off of the compatibility list for this version.</p> <p>But following the debacle with the broken iOS 8.0.1 release, that number has only increased 1% in the weeks since. And weirdly, the percentage of users running a version prior to iOS 7 grew as well (from 5% to 6%). While that last figure is truly odd, the overall takeaway seems to be that device owners don&rsquo;t seem anxious to make any big changes until it&rsquo;s certain that Apple has ironed out its kinks.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="https://developer.apple.com/support/appstore/">Apple</a> via <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2014/10/06/ios8-market-share-stagnated/">9to5Mac</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/ios-801-released-then-pulled-breaking-iphone-6-cell-service-and-touch-id/news">iOS 8.0.1 released, then pulled after breaking iPhone 6 cell service and Touch ID functionality</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Facebook&#039;s anonymous access plans </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Here&rsquo;s an unexpected development.

However, developer <a href="http://www.lukeredpath.co.uk">Luke Redpath</a> called this a &ldquo;wake-up call&rdquo;, arguing developers should be using resolution-independent graphics and auto-layout capabilities as the number of available devices proliferates. <a href="http://www.pcalc.com">PCalc</a> creator James Thomson adds that although Apple omitted talking about the specifics of its new devices at WWDC 2014 in June, it was possible to read between the lines regarding imminent larger iPhones &ldquo;and possibly bigger iPads with a split-screen option&rdquo;.</p> <p>The message, he says, was &ldquo;don&rsquo;t assume screen sizes are fixed any more&rdquo;. While demanding a shift in approach and extra work for developers in the short term, embracing Apple&rsquo;s new thinking will, argues Thomson, &ldquo;make apps more flexible&rdquo;; he reckons if Apple came out with a 7in iPhone tomorrow, his PCalc app would already adapt with no extra work.</p> <p>Panic&rsquo;s <a href="http://mrgan.tumblr.com">Neven Mrgan</a> also enthuses about the manner in which Apple has provided guidance and tools, but complains that the rest of a developer&rsquo;s toolkit is lagging: &ldquo;Design apps need to start helping out by natively supporting concepts such as adaptive UI or even multiple canvas sizes that reuse basic elements. Little pieces of functionality are trickling in, but we still have to do a lot of manual hacking to design for all the different iOS devices.&rdquo;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="800" height="600" title="display" alt="display" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/display_0.jpg?1411983023" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Playing the game </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Mrgan notes he&rsquo;s spent 15 years sweating over pixel precision, following the idea that a good designer must arrange everything just so. But techniques need revising now the iPhone&rsquo;s moving towards extremely high-resolution screens, flexible viewport sizes and scaled graphics. Games creator <a href="http://pixelsontoast.com">Kevin Ng</a> wonders how developers of retro-style pixellated games like Wayward Souls will now fare, since they relied on whole-number scaling to blow imagery up in a manner that always remained sharp. &ldquo;Their choice is now whether to allow fuzzy edges or crop the game world on certain devices, which could give unfair advantages to some players in multiplayer,&rdquo; he says.</p> <p>Elsewhere, though, developers see few problems regarding bringing games to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Ng notes the screens are still 16:9, like the one on the iPhone 5 and 5s, meaning interfaces can remain largely the same, bar minor adjustments for &lsquo;thumb reach&rsquo; and textures. He also dismisses any notion iOS has turned into something like Android for games creation, and even suggests Android has <em>benefitted</em> iOS developers: &ldquo;We&rsquo;ve had to deal with Android&rsquo;s many resolutions for years, which has forced games designers to start thinking in a resolution-agnostic manner. Because of this, many games should work fine out of the box with the new iPhones.&rdquo; Games developer <a href="http://www.aeiowu.com">Greg Wohlwend</a> adds that this also works in reverse: &ldquo;If you make a game and it does well, you&rsquo;ll want it to work on everything. So starting with a more flexible output in mind will help minimise headaches when porting to new systems.&rdquo;</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/ios-8/review" target="_blank">iOS 8 review</a></strong></p> <p><a href="http://www.revolution60.com">Giant Spacekat</a> head of development Brianna Wu is also extremely positive about the potential for games on the new iPhones. She similarly dismisses Android comparisons &mdash; &ldquo;The problem there isn&rsquo;t so much screen sizes as dealing with all the different hardware&rdquo; &mdash;&nbsp;and reckons games are &ldquo;simply more fun to play on a bigger screen&rdquo;. She wonders whether larger iPhones could impact on Vita sales, and notes that Apple&rsquo;s Metal technology could be transformative to mobile gaming.</p> <p>&ldquo;Metal&rsquo;s going to let gaming on your iPad and iPhone look closer to games on a console. Those things that really make you go &quot;WOW!&quot; when you play a PS4 game is what Metal lets devs do better than ever before, solving limitations regarding particle effects and transparency,&rdquo; she explains. &ldquo;My belief is because of Metal you&rsquo;re going to see way more games on consoles ported specifically to iOS, because they&rsquo;ll simply run better now.&rdquo; Wu notes that Metal is also something that could impact on Android, because the sheer fragmentation of hardware and software makes a similar system on that platform practically impossible to implement.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="800" height="416" title="gaming" alt="gaming" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/gaming_0.jpg?1411983023" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Building extensions </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Beyond the screen, it&rsquo;s iOS&rsquo;s newfound extensibility that has developers excited. Previously, every app was a silo, but that&rsquo;s about to change. &ldquo;I&rsquo;m not a hyperbolic person, but iOS 8 app extensions could be the biggest thing to happen to third-party iOS apps,&rdquo; believes David Chartier of <a href="https://agilebits.com">AgileBits</a>.</p> <p>Whereas before it was hard to get iOS apps to work together and exchange information, Chartier says iOS 8 &ldquo;blows that all wide open&rdquo;. This will lead to new classes of apps, and also make existing apps and services more powerful. You&rsquo;ll be able to clip anything from Safari to Pinterest, collect content into Evernote, have 1Password fill passwords, and more. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s about faster workflows and ultimately providing more power to end users,&rdquo; says Oliver Waters of <a href="http://d3i.com">d3i</a>.</p> <p>By way of example, games developer <a href="http://www.boson-x.com">Ian McLarty</a> says he uses his iPad for music composition, and will no longer have to use extra apps to read data and then transfer it to Dropbox. And Iconfactory&rsquo;s <a href="http://gedblog.com">Gedeon Maheux</a> notes how developers can add value to existing offerings, such as PCalc&rsquo;s Today View extension that optionally resides in Notification Center: &ldquo;People love it because you get instant access to a calculator right from the lock screen. There are so many possibilities and opportunities here.&rdquo;</p> <p>Elsewhere, Touch ID is now available for third-party apps (&ldquo;A big win for anyone who wants an extra layer of security,&rdquo; according to <a href="http://metaclassy.com">Metaclassy</a>&rsquo;s Jorge Pedroso), and Handoff will enable the seamless transition of in-progress content between devices. Wu wonders whether Steve Jobs&rsquo;s Apple would ever have allowed such things, and reasons this renewed Apple is &ldquo;getting better&rdquo;.</p> <p>There are some notes of caution, however. Chartier says developers must be careful to alert users about integration features, because although they&rsquo;re installed with app updates, they are not enabled by default. Mrgan hopes a &ldquo;market of apps aiming to replace system services won&rsquo;t devolve into a contest of cleverness and giddiness, like we&rsquo;ve seen in the past, and will instead compete on feature quality and robustness&rdquo;. Redpath, though, is convinced things will go well: &ldquo;Extensions have the potential to really change how we all use iOS, and I get the impression Apple intends to develop new &lsquo;extension points&rsquo; in the future. But for now, being able to share data between apps without having to switch apps is a killer feature.&rdquo;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1324" height="993" title="extensions" alt="extensions" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/extensions.png?1411983023" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Watch this space </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Of course, Apple&rsquo;s recent event wasn&rsquo;t only about the iPhone &mdash; Apple Watch was unveiled, which the company says developers will be able to create apps for. Barnes warns that the &lsquo;watch&rsquo; part of the device&rsquo;s name is essentially a misnomer: &ldquo;I&rsquo;m not sure thinking of it as a watch will be any more useful than thinking of the iPhone as a phone. It&rsquo;s really a computer you can carry around even more easily.&rdquo;</p> <p>As for the apps, Chartier notes it&rsquo;s a &ldquo;totally new platform, which will require new thinking for new use-cases&rdquo;. It eschews multitouch and has a tiny screen, which will prove challenging to app and game creators. Chartier reasons those who &ldquo;truly think outside the box will be most successful,&rdquo; while Maheux is excited by the interface: &ldquo;Already, everything&rsquo;s starting to gel and vibe&nbsp;&mdash; the animations are fluid and make sense, and the design is clean and purposeful. I can&rsquo;t wait for something like the Apple Watch&rsquo;s Home screen to come to the iPhone&hellip;&rdquo;</p> <p>In terms of what we&rsquo;ll see, it&rsquo;s all speculation for now. Stephen Dodd of <a href="http://www.officetime.net">Office Time</a> reckons it&rsquo;ll be perfect for tracking your life, including for business uses, such as timing billables by client. Waters sees loads of potential in health and personally connected apps, with the Apple Watch sensors and &lsquo;taptic&rsquo; engine collecting and feeding back data to users in new ways. And Morgan is looking forward to non-obvious applications: &ldquo;Notifications, exercise apps and remotes seem obvious enough, but what about games, creation tools and companion accessories? Three years from now, millions will use a hip new Apple Watch service we can&rsquo;t even imagine today.&rdquo;</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/apple-iwatch/review" target="_blank">Apple Watch hands-on</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="800" height="600" title="watch" alt="watch" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/apple-watch_0.png?1411983023" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Tight squeeze </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>As ever, there was some disappointment following Apple&rsquo;s September event. Mobile app developer <a href="http://www.squidee.com">Luke Durant</a> wasn&rsquo;t thrilled at Apple keeping 16 GB devices in the line-up (and, worse, the 8 GB iPhone 5c), and said this means developers will have to take extra care to keep app builds small so they don&rsquo;t take up too much space: &ldquo;I&rsquo;ve seen people with such devices who can&rsquo;t even update to iOS 8, because they have 6 GB of photos and just a few apps&rdquo;. With larger screens, the demand for bigger assets only amplifies this problem.</p> <p>Pedroso also says it&rsquo;s getting increasingly hard for independent developers to keep pace: &ldquo;For the last couple of years, we&rsquo;ve been spending months just playing catch-up with updates to iOS, OS X and devices. And this year, Apple&rsquo;s released even more stuff.&rdquo; He adds he doesn&rsquo;t want to sound too negative &mdash; Apple&rsquo;s updates are good for business &mdash; but such stressful periods can with smaller developers propel apps into a kind of maintenance mode rather than their creators working on planned new features. There&rsquo;s also a question of stability, with betas, developer tools and even the final shipping operating systems coming under fire.</p> <p>Developers have also been criticised due to many early iOS 8 updates not being properly optimised for iOS 8. Many apps simply zoom the interface and fix a few bugs, and some games don&rsquo;t work at all on the iPhone 6 Plus. Durant appeals to users to allow developers a little time. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s going to take a while for developers to take full advantage of the new APIs and capabilities, and the full power of everything Apple&rsquo;s released won&rsquo;t come until later,&rdquo; he says. &ldquo;But I think we are already on the next chapter in the iOS app ecosystem.&rdquo;</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/apple-iphone-6/review" target="_blank">Apple iPhone 6 review</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="800" height="390" title="storage" alt="storage" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/storage.jpg?1411983023" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/app-makers-iphone-6-ios-8-and-apple-watch/feature" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/app-makers-iphone-6-ios-8-and-apple-watch/feature#comments Apple Apps and Games iOS 8 iOS apps iPhone 6 iPhone 6 Plus Watch Thu, 25 Sep 2014 16:29:47 +0000 Elissa Loi 1448591 at http://www.stuff.tv Fully Charged: Apple hurrying iOS 8.0.2 out soon, Gear VR launch experiences are free, and new Call of Duty co-op mode revealed http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/fully-charged-apple-hurrying-ios-802-out-soon-gear-vr-launch-experiences-free-and-new-call-dut <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Load up on all of the tech news you need to start your day </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="iOS 8" alt="iOS 8" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/apple-ios8-closeup.jpg?1411693324" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/andrew-hayward" title="View user profile.">Andrew Hayward</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> iOS 8.0.2 out within next few days </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Yesterday&rsquo;s release of iOS 8.0.1 proved disastrous for Apple, as the first update to last week&rsquo;s new version upgrade wound up killing cellular service and Touch ID functionality for some <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/apple-iphone-6/review">iPhone 6</a> and <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/apple-iphone-6l/review">iPhone 6 Plus</a> users.
