We have heard all kinds of rumors about the products Apple is working on this year. Most experts agree that Apple will be releasing a budget iPhone in 2013. DetroitBORG has posted a video that the plastic shell of the low-cost iPhone. The video also compares the budget iPhone to other iOS devices. As you can see in the video, the discussed shell is a bit thicker than iPhone 5’s.
Speaking of Apple, the Developer Center is still down. If you missed it, Apple’s Developer Center was hacked recently, forcing the company to take it offline to address some issues. This post has now been posted to the site:
We apologize for the significant inconvenience caused by our developer website downtime. We’ve been working around the clock to overhaul our developer systems, update our server software, and rebuild our entire database. While we complete the work to bring our systems back online, we want to share the latest with you.
We plan to roll out our updated systems, starting with Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles, Apple Developer Forums, Bug Reporter, pre-release developer libraries, and videos first. Next, we will restore software downloads, so that the latest betas of iOS 7, Xcode 5, and OS X Mavericks will once again be available to program members. We’ll then bring the remaining systems online.
The good news is if your program membership is set to expire during this period, it will be extended, so your app will remain in the app store. Let’s hope security issues are fully addressed before the Developer Center goes back live again.
