I’ve been using this feature ever since I upgraded to iOS 6. In fact, I’ve been using it every day since it was released, so it’s definitely time to make the switch back to iOS 7 and IOS 7.0 is just around the corner. If you are a developer or a developer-in-training, I would suggest learning how to write the updated update files for your app and iOS 7.
I know it may not seem like a good idea to force an update on users after they’ve already tried the new version of your app, but in reality, its the best solution for most situations.
As most of you probably know, Apple has been releasing updated versions of their mobile operating system nearly every week for the past 2 years. There are over 100 updates per month. The reason for this long release schedule is all about keeping their OS safe and secure. Apple has done a pretty good job of keeping up with the pace of security updates for iOS 6 and 7. They also have a pretty decent track record when it comes to keeping up with the pace of OS updates.
Unfortunately, Apple has been known to not do a good job of keeping up with the pace of security updates for their mobile operating system. The latest OS update, iOS 8, was released in June of this year and it was promptly pulled after it was discovered that some apps were no longer working properly. The update was then replaced with a brand new update that went by the name of iOS 9, which I’m sure most of you are familiar with.
Since then, people have been complaining about the lack of updates coming to their iOS devices. The problem is, Apple doesn’t always update their devices automatically, and this means that people are having problems. The most notable issue is with the Apple Watch, which is a great gadget, but Apple has been slow to patch the latest security updates.
The latest security update for the Apple Watch is already a few months old. It’s no longer included in the OS update that comes with iOS 9.
With today’s iOS 9.3, Apple has started to patch the security updates for the Apple Watch. With this, the Watch can now be set to receive a push notification every 30 seconds, so it will automatically update itself in the background. This means that users will be able to receive the most up-to-date security updates for their Apple Watch, and hopefully keep any Apple Watch-related problems from happening at all.
Yes, I hear you, I too get my Apple Watch notifications at 30 seconds intervals. I also get the usual iOS 9.3 security updates. After all, I’m a paid Apple Store app developer, and I have to keep an eye on the iOS 9.3 security updates I’m getting from Apple.
Well, what we have here is a nice little case study in how to handle bugs and security updates after you’ve already paid for them. There are people who actually get their Apple Watch notifications at 30 second intervals. The most annoying part about those is that they’re actually very annoying — especially when they’re happening once every three or four months. It’s a very real problem.
The same goes for ios updates. The notifications are annoying because they happen once per three or four months and theyre annoying because they never stop. In fact, there are hundreds of thousands of people who are still getting notifications from Apple Watch even though they didn’t need to be. A simple fix would be to have a system that detects when a new update is available and just takes care of it for you instead of asking you to pay for it.
