Good afternoon, fellow iPhiles. Can you detect a certain fruity autumn buzz in the air? September has rolled around at last and there’s just over a week to go until Apple unveils its newest droolworthy range of handheld digital life-enablers. Assuming the steady drip feed of leaked photos is indeed legit, swanky new champagne and graphite models are set to join the family. Looking beyond purely cosmetic developments, though, here at Ettore Software HQ we’re keen to see what innovative new hardware features the upcoming iPhone 5S will offer. For our part, fingers are tightly crossed that we’ll get an elegant one-touch thumbprint sensor unlocking system, which would do away with awkward PIN-based security and represent something of a godsend to those of us who are, er, all thumbs.
…Anyhoo, we thought some of you might be interested in this recently published video that was recorded during Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference in San Francisco. In it, grey-bearded Ettore Software founder Riccardo chats with Neil Ticktin of MacTech Live, sharing some cautious initial thoughts on how the just-revealed iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks might fit in with our company’s app roadmap. He may give away little of substance about our future plans, but it’s worth watching for the entertaining thumb dance, if nothing else.
