First Details On iOS 8 And iWatch Emerge, Will Focus On Health And Fitness

Now 9to5Mac is citing its own sources in a allegation that Apple’s next huge shove is set to be based on health monitoring, with the unannounced but almost inevitable iWatch set to form the cornerstone of what will be a leap into the unknown for the hardware and software giant. That iWatch is yet very much mythical, so we’ll have to look what comes of both rumors with time. . Recent iPhones and iPads already feature technology that can track movement more accurately than previous generations thanks to the new M7 chip they possess, but the inclusion of a sensor-laden iWatch would give iOS 8 considerably more access to the data it needs to construct an accurate describe of our overall health. That being said, both the iWatch and health-targeted angle it is set to take are rumors that simply will not go away, and as the saying goes "there’s no smoke without fire.

According to the report, iOS 8 will receive a new app called ‘Healthbook’ that, at least currently, closely resembles the Passbook app pre-installed on all iPhone. With slide-able cards and a vivid interface, the app will aim to make fitness and health tracking as simple as possible while hopefully yet offering a powerful alterative to existing products from the likes of Nike and Fitbit." Will the rumors stand the test of time, or will Apple dump both its new iOS 8 features and the accompanying hardware before they ever look the light of day We’re going to put our money on the former. Based on information from unnamed sources, 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman has lifted the cover on iOS 8′s focus on health, with the new operating system set to receive the capability to read various health-related data from as-yet unannounced hardware accessories.

While Apple is yet very much trying to stabilize iOS 7 into a platform on which it can construct, attention is already turning towards what could be part of the iOS 8 experience that is due to land later this year. You can follow us on Twitter, add us to your circle on Google or like our Facebook page to save yourself updated on all the latest from Microsoft, Google, Apple and the web. With the iOS 7 redesign being somewhat on the radical side, all eyes are one where Apple takes its mobile operating system during the next few months. Nike FuelBand SE While currently below development for a release in iOS 8, Gurman’s sources point out that there is currently no guarantee that iOS 8 will back the health-related features mentioned.

It’s possible Apple would want to launch the health-based features alongside an iWatch announcement, meaning both could be intertwined when it comes to a potential release date. Apple has a history of canning features before a new version of iOS ships, with the option of moving the feature to a later release also a viable one.

Apple’s iWatch and iOS 8 are reportedly fitness-focused

Of course, none of this should come as a tremendous shock though it’s all yet firmly in the rumor bin — word of Apple working on a wearable has been floating for quite some time, and it’s past the point of coincidence. Like it’s name, Healthbook is apparently beautiful similar to Passbook, and you’ll be able to swipe through various “cards” with health information. That’s to say nothing of the dedicated chip inside Apple’s latest iPhone seen above. First, the wearable works in concert with “Healthbook,” a new internal app intended to track various fitness steps, distance, etc.

Between Apple hiring wearable electronics engineers notable ones!, meeting with FDA regulators about “mobile medical applications,” and the competition already staking a firm allegation in the nascent smart watch market, no one following the tech news beast should be shocked.We yet don’t know exactly what Apple’s long-rumored smart watch is, or what it’s called — yes, iWatch is probably right — but a report today from 9to5Mac posits a whole heap of new information. and health metrics blood pressure, heart rate, etc. Second, it looks like Healthbook — at least currently — is a crucial part of iOS 8, and when paired with iWatch or

‘Twitter Commerce’ leak puts a buy button next to retweet and favorite

In the case,Verizon vs. “Net Neutrality is the reason all of these petitions even exist, and it’s so important to protect everyones ability to tell what they want and go where they want online without an Internet service provider interfering.

Net neutrality is hugely important, at least if you’re a consumer and you wish to use the Internet as you please, instead of having large corporations such as cable providers trying to rule what you have access to, your speeds, and other aspects of the experience.” AsArs Technica notes, FCC chairman Tom Wheeler has already said the FCC is trying to locate new ways to enforce net neutrality rules, though that would likely require reclassifying Verizon, AT&T, Time Warner and other Internet companies as common carriers below Title II of the Communications Act, and Wheeler hasn’t expressed one way or another on how or if that will happen. the FCC, Verizon came out on summit because of old rules that didn’t consider Internet providers “common carriers,”Ars Technicaexplained. Unfortunately, two weeks ago a federal court tossed out a suit in which the Federal Communications Commission tried to implement its Open Internet Order net neutrality rules, that would prevent ownership of the Internet from going into corporate hands.

Both should have been simple house runs for the enormous developer, but for some reason it just couldn’t handle the pressure. Only it keeps finding out it don’t have the critical firepower, forcing it to call in reinforcements after taking heavy damage time after time. I’d like another SimCity game, but if EA tries to push online on us again, I won’t be bothering. on the player satisfaction side, EA was trying to solve its own problems and trick the player into believing that it was better that way.

Instead of trying to win the war with good games, EA is trying to win the battle by getting games out first. It had some enormous releases last year, and it looks like they couldn’t receive some of the biggest ones right. SimCity‘s trouble was a combination of two separate issues. It has good ideas, but it’s simply broken in too many basic ways.

It’s been sued a by slew of networks that aren’t eager on the startup’s video-streaming mission, and the Supreme Court is getting close to passing a ruling on the matter.
