Transcript of Apple

Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs was born on February 24, 1955. Steve Jobs founded Apple in 1976 with Steve Wozinak when he was 21 years old. He was fired a couple of times from Apple. They did not see many sales during those times. During those times he founded NeXT Computer and Pixar.
Macintosh computers go as far back as the mid 80's. Back then they were running an operating system called Mac OS. The foundation was made of NeXT's system. Eventually Mac OS was stopped in 1999. Mac OS X replaced it in 2002. It was built on the Linux kernel, and has received 9 major revisions.
iOS/iPhone OS
iOS is what has powered the iPhone since 2007, and the iPad since 2009. The newest iOS has been installed by many more users than Android, as demonstrated by Apple at WWDC 2013. It has received 7 major updates. The OS also powers the iPod Touch, and only the 5th gen. can use iOS 7.
The iPhone is the very first iOS device to be released and introduced. The iPhone 2G was introduced in 2007 by Steve Jobs, and is surprisingly still used by many people as an MP3 player. Those people refer to it as a piece of history. 7 revisions have been made. 2 have been made in 2013.
The iPad is the first tablet made by Apple, running a factory modified version of iOS 3.1.2. The original iPad was introduced in 2009, and it has received two spinoffs and four revisions. The latest was done in 2013. A second spinoff was made in 2013 called the iPad Air. It weighs just 1 pound.
Worldwide Developers Conference has been held every year since 1995. Frequently abbreviated as WWDC, it is one of Apple's most popular conferences, selling out in just under 2 minutes for WWDC 2013. Apple holds two similar events, however they do not have as high a turnout, however they are very popular online. These events are mostly used to introduce new products.
Apple ID
An Apple ID has been around since iTunes. iTunes introduced the Apple ID to buy items from the iTunes Store. Both items were introduced in 2001 along with the original iPod.
iTunes is a music player pre-installed on Macs and available as a free download for Windows. Both versions work the same. Along with the iTunes section on the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch, it can be used to directly purchase digital items.
App Store
Even though the first iPod could use and play apps, when the iPod Touch was released on iPhone OS 2, the ability for third party apps was added. The App Store has since become a standout icon for Apple.
Issues with iOS 7
Numerous bugs have occurred in the software, including one allowing you to bypass the lock screen, but the software is making people ill, i.e nauseous. The effect that is doing it is the zooming effect. Apple does not allow this to be shut off in accessibility.
Special Events
Apple holds special events to launch new products. These normally happen in Sept. and Oct.. These events are used to introduce new iPhones, iPods, and iPads. Sometimes they also introduce new Macintosh products. These events are invite-only.
Jailbreaking means bypassing the restrictions Apple puts on the operating system and taking full control of the device. With a jailbroken device, you can install apps and tweaks that aren't authorized by Apple, but you also remove the tough security protections that Apple has built into iOS
A former jailbreak tweak called Quick Settings. It is now embedded in iOS 7 as Control Center
iOS Development
As of iPhone OS 2, you could develop and install third-party apps with a $99 Apple Developer subscription. This $99 allows access to the iOS development center.

iTunes Radio
iTunes Radio is a online/cellular radio streaming service. It allows you to create new on demand stations through genres, artists, and songs. iTunes Radio was introduced with iTunes 11.1 and iOS 7.
UDID and iOS betas
The Unique Device Identification Number or UDID is a crucial part of the iOS foundation. Each number is assigned to a particular device. This is used in iOS betas as a required step to register. i.e if I wanted to put my iPad and iPod on a beta system, I would have 2/100 devices on my Developer Account, which I do not have. The iPad and iPod have separate UDIDs.
iOS vs Android
iOS is one year older than Android, but how do they stack up? Lets find out. iOS has one UI refreshment, and has stuck with the same profile, just flat in iOS 7. Android has gotten 4 UI refreshments, is open source, and has more users.
Hacktivating is the process of hacking the activation file, allowing you to use it without being officially activated on an authorized carrier, such as Sprint or AT&T. This normally means deleting the activation file setup.app, and can only be done on devices with an Apple A4 processor or lower, meaning the devices this can be done on are the iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, or the original iPad. These devices have a different bootrom than the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPad 2 AT&T, iPad 2 Verizon, iPad 3, AT&T, iPad 3 Verizon, iPad 4 AT&T, iPad 4 Verizon, iPad 4 Sprint, iPad Mini AT&T, iPad Mini Verizon, iPad Mini Sprint, iPad Air/5 AT&T, iPad Air/5 Verizon, iPad Air/5 Sprint, iPad Mini 2, AT&T, iPad Mini 2 Verizon, and the iPad Mini 2 Sprint
