iOS 7.1.2 coming soon

20140622-112336-41016432.jpg
A report from Macrumors on claims apple is nearing release of an iOS update that looks to address an email attachment encryption issue, a lock screen vulnerability and enhanced iBeacon support, among other minor bug fixes.

After the release of iOS 7.1.1 two months ago, Apple said it was aware of the issue and would soon issue an update to patch the flaw.

In addition to email encryption, the upcoming iOS 7.1.2 is also said to address a problem in which the Mail app fails to download email messages.

The upcoming iOS version will include a fix for an unspecified Lock Screen vulnerability that could allow access to “limited apps.” A final minor bug fix deals with data transfer from third-party accessories.

Finally, the purported iOS 7.1.2 update will include enhancements to iBeacon connectivity, but again the report is unclear on specifics.

It is expected that Apple will fix a long-standing problem with iMessage that occurs when a user switches from an iPhone to a non-iOS device without properly disassociating their phone number from Apple’s service. In some cases, iMessage will continue to intercept incoming texts and will not forward them to a users new device.

Apple has released the update already to its carriers and it is expected anytime in two weeks.

Touchpal has released its alpha version of its keyboard to iOS 8.Installing is easy as like an app installation and selecting keyboard to use works the similar way selecting Emoji keyboards.

iOS 8 : Messages app

20140614-103421-38061954.jpg

We all do texting , it has replaced our voices with letters via messages. And , for effective texting we need an app that gives us all , not everyone would feel to have separate apps for each feature , like one for group , share photos and videos and voice.

iOS Messages app is cool , with its sexy animations and UI the best stock app you’d get.However , it lacks features which people want on their texting apps.

With iOS 8 , apple has made messages app productive than ever. YES! Now you can create groups , share voice,videos and photos and a lot more. But , in Apple’s design style which makes it stand out.

Voice messaging :
Now , when you add a contact you want to send a text, the send button will automatically change into a microphone. Tapping and holding on the microphone icon with start recording the audio message and also display a translucent menu. You can swipe up to send the message or swipe to the left to dismiss the audio message. Alternatively, you can lift the phone to your ear to start recording the voice message or listen to an incoming voice message like a phone call.

•Share Photos and Videos :
Tap and hold on the Camera icon to display a new translucent menu as you can see below. You can take an instant photo and send it by swiping up or take a video by swiping to the right. It may take some time getting used to, but it is certainly more intuitive and faster than the previous workflow of tapping on the Camera button, then tapping on “Take Photo or Video”, agreeing to “Use the Photo or Video” and then tapping on the Send button.

Group messaging :
iOS 8 also brings some enhancements to group messaging. You will finally be able to rename a group conversation in iOS 8 so that you can quickly get the context of the conversation. You need to tap on Details, and swipe down to enter the subject to rename the conversation. You also have the option to mute notifications for a group conversation in the details screen by enabling the Do Not Disturb toggle.

Quick reply : Finally , apple had answered to the request to reply/interact with a notification without leaving what you are doing . With iOS 8 , you will be able to reply to texts right from the notification.With a swipe down gesture , you could send a reply.
