Apple iOS 7 will integrate professional social network

The new operating system for Apple mobile devices, Apple iOS 7 will come with many new features of which we reported at the time. But until now it comes to light the final version in the fall of this year, we can not know if there will be any more. One of those developments was not out is that Apple wants to integrate LinkedIn into the upcoming operating system, the same way we now do with Facebook and Twitter.

It seems that Apple wants to do more social your new operating system. That is why, apart from Twitter and Facebook, Apple iOS 7 will integrate the world’s most famous professional social network, LinkedIn.

9to5mac said the developer HamzaSood found a code and text strings that would point directly to the hypothesis that LinkedIn will be present in the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Admittedly still be missing some pieces of the code so that this social network was activated and therefore in the beta version is now available for developers LinkedIn is not implemented.

A commitment to full integration

As stated above it was not until 2012 when Facebook was fully implemented in iOS. Until then, only from within the social network application and from the web page from Safari could update the status of our profile. But in 2010, Apple already had proven integration with Facebook in its beta version of Apple iOS 4, although for various reasons in the end it was implemented in the final version.

This time it seems that it is finally implemented in the final version of LinkedIn, but there can not confirm anything until Apple officially announce it. But it makes all the sense in the world. In Cupertino are not going to take forever, or so it seems, to allow of Facebook launcher as has been done in Android, but do not want to be left behind in the total social integration of their devices. That is why it seems a very good idea that LinkedIn will join Facebook and Twitter, keeping in mind that concern for seeking and finding employment is the order of the day.

iMessage, the new messaging service for mobile Apple iOS 5

Apple decided to enter fully into the territory of the text messages through their new application iMessage, which will provide users of mobile devices with iOS 5 platform the ability to send texts, videos and photos for free, which can represent a blow to the telephone companies have made big business SMS.

The new application is integrated into iOS 5, the latest update of Apple’s mobile operating system will be available for download and incorporates, as its developer, more than 200 new features.

Considered by many as the response of the Cupertino systems known as Blackberry Messenger or WhatsApp, iMessage not only allows free-sending of text message nationally and internationally, but it also allows users to send images and video, all via Wi-Fi and 3G.

iMessage also allows customers to control all their messages, either through receipts or through optional reading notices. The application gives also the possibility of seeing one of your contacts when you are writing something, or send text messages in complete safety thanks to its encryption system.

 

Uninterrupted communication from any iOS device

The capabilities of this free messaging service makes Apple users can be constantly in touch, because it allows them to start a conversation on a device (an iPhone, for instance) and continue it later in another (iPhone or iPod Touch) .

That’s another interesting feature of iMessage, since its application is not limited to the iPhone, but also can be used from other Apple mobile devices like iPad and iPod Touch, which greatly enhances their chances of consolidation preferences of consumers.

It is clear that such devices must have certain characteristics of support to operate this new service, which is why Apple has released the list of gadgets compatible with the new iOS that integrated  iMessage, these are:

  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 4S
  • iPod Touch 3rd Generation
  • iPod Touch 4th Generation
  • iPad
  • iPad 2

The disadvantage of iMessage is that it does not allows the exchange of messages from phone running other operating systems such as Android, Blackberry, Nokia, or Windows Mobile, especially considering that the system developed by Google ranks first in the preferences of users around the world.
