Apple Update To ios7 Operating System - This Weekend

Carol here,

Apple is updating their operating systems on the Iphone this weekend.  I have heard this will affect everyone in the world holding an Iphone4 or higher.

You may ask what is the importance of this change?

Well, Iphone users are at the mercy of Apple this release, developers are also at their mercy in that applications might not function properly on this new ios7 operating system.

Whenever an operating system gets modified all the applications on that device are affected. Apple is not responsible for any of the other applications on your Iphone that they have not sold to you.  The sellers/developers of each application are responsible for their own application, and there is actually a dependency between all the applications and the operating system.

People expect everything to work better than before, however, there is a risk that some applications might not work at all anymore.

The same held true with every release of Microsoft Windows that has happened, and that is why many applications are no longer available that we were previously using.  In fact when Microsoft released Windows 98 one of their worst releases under record, they put a cog in the wheel for all the Year 2000 (Y2K) development that was going on across the world.

Many of the other existing Technology Companies were actually completely forced out of business with new operating system releases.  It's a jungle out there.

Have a good weekend.  Carol
