All you need to know regarding iOS 10 Beta 10 Update – Fusion Informatics

ios-10-beta-1

iOS 10 tenth beta update just released this month, and Apple seems to be on the right track of fulfilling the promise of launching a true version of iOS 10, in terms of both hardware and software, towards the end of this year as planned.

Being a leading iPhone mobile application development for years now, we as the “Fusion team”, predicted iOS 10 update release to take place near to iPhone 7 / iPhone 7 Plus release, as this has been the trend for years now, wherein a new iOS update takes place before or after new iPhone devices.

Looking at a brief history, iOS 10 beta launch took place at the WWDC event in June this year. In fact, what you are seeing currently is the iOS 10 beta 9 version, which is still not complete, especially with average iPhont /iPad users. It is quite amazing to see, iOS 10 10th beta version coming into play just around a month after 9th beta version release.

So, what revisions have taken place with this latest beta version release?

  1. Raise the device to wake up with notifications

It has been 9 years since the release of first iPhone device, and what is so special about iOS 10 is pressing the Home button to unlock the screen, instead of swiping to unlock the phone. This recent beta release goes one step further, in simply raising the phone to wake up the screen with notifications.

  1. Lock screen notifications become richer than before

Here you have notifications sorted in the form of bubbles, and 3D touch technology helps to display them from within the hidden menu. Decline or accept an event invite based on an alert through calendar invite.

This is highly useful in case of Messages, wherein it becomes easier responding to messages without actually leaving the lock screen. You can respond to the messages even with the screen locked.

No more digging required in app menus, or around the home screen, for checking on vital information. As an example, when you receive a doorbell camera notification, you can directly open up, without actually unlocking or scanning menus.

  1. Clear notifications with a single tap on close button

This is probably the most revolutionary change with iOS 10 notifications. With iOS 9, you needed to clear notifications one by one, or in groups. However, iOS 10 makes things relatively easier with a single “x” press removing all notifications altogether.

  1. Detection of water making it waterproof

Since the release of second beta update, iOS 10 has displayed waterproofing capabilities, through a warning message that pops up when the device detects water nearby.

  1. De cluttering of control center

There has been a drastic change in Control Center overlay menu, helping the layout to be more refined avoiding cluttering of things. With four shortcuts below in the form of camera, calculator, stopwatch, flashlight, the fifth shortcut Night Shift gets bigger space and moves above the quartet.

  1. Widgets and camera opens up quickly

It has become way easier to open up a camera, since you are automatically diverted to camera app, as soon as you slide the lock screen to right. As far as the widgets goes, you need to slide the lock screen to the left.

  1. Graphical shortcuts for 3D touch

Having a graphic 3D touch shortcut for your app could be way more engaging than a plain shortcut. Imagine, an app like “Activity” represented by a shortcut mentioning the fitness goals. Even closing the daily rings immediately becomes easier, effectively reminding you of what to do at the same time.

  1. Organizing visual memories with advanced computer vision

iOS 10 taking lessons from its biggest rival “Google” has integrated “advanced computer vision” capability that makes it lot easier to organize photo memories effectively. Pushing the Photos app to the next level, Apple wants to create photo albums based on the face recognition ability. Going even a step further, it plans to take Memories on another level, by reminding events through clusters of topics, people, and trips.

  1. Apple Maps gets better and optimized

Apple Maps gets an awesome transition in iOS 10 fixes. Initially, people were pulled back to the original location, even if you tried to look anywhere else for the same. But now, the inability to scroll a route is resolved, as the latest OS gives users freedom to zoom and pan around the maps. Even the navigation software is such that dynamically zooms in and out with ease.

10. Apple Music gets a new flavor

The update does not do much for free subscribers to Apple Music. However, if you are a paid subscriber, you have a nice clean design highlighting cover and suggesting music, in a logical fashion. There is an added advantage, the way lyrics appear. Even the ‘For You’ tab does a nice job of curating the playlists, absorbing the diminished role of Connect tab, with ‘New’ becoming ‘Browse’.

11. Apple News showing breaking news

Breaking news now appears directly as notifications, so to have a quick instant access to the biggest news of what’s happening worldwide.

12. Voicemail transcription is finally a reality

Ever fed up listening to a bunch of piled voicemails? The transcription of voicemails finally comes to life with iOS 10. So now, you no longer will see VoIP taking a backseat. You can answer WhatsApp calls, just like any other normal phone call, with the screen locked. In fact, they will be a part of your recent or favorites lists.

13. Messages with bigger and better emojis as well as live links

Yes you heard it all right. Now you have bigger and better text messages with a brand new set of emojis, and live links to make your communication more meaningful.

Some final words from Fusion Informatics

Fusion Informatics is well prepared, and started making apps for iOS 10 portability. With technology advancing, especially with mobile apps, things only get complex. As soon as we get latest news about iOS 10, we will keep you updated, and probably tell you about new features that can be used efficiently in enhancing an app.

Android 7.0 Nougat Fusion tells you all you need to know

Android-7

Google has finally rolled out Preview 5 of Android 7.0 termed as “Nougat”. It is meant for use specifically to allow developers test mobile apps on this newest Android OS. With this preview, Google is all set to make a clean sweep, by introducing all final APIs with the release. In addition, the release will see the almost ready system updates, which will support all the devices.

What does Android N Developer Preview have in store?

Android N Developer Preview, featuring bindings to final APIs of the Android N SDK. The new version includes several exciting features including multi-window UI, direct reply notifications, advanced memory and power optimizations, and more for developers to integrate into their applications.

We, being a leading Android mobile application development company, were keen to know what the preview had in store, and this is what we found out:

  • A range of images for Google Nexus series of phones that includes both Sony Experia Z3 and Android One.
  • An emulator helping in full and final testing, through which developers confirm the readiness.
  • Final APIs, letting developers have a glimpse of actual UI and behavior.
  • Address optimization of software and latest bug fixes, giving way for developers to test all the changes in system behavior, before the actual OS release. Important changes include permissions modifications, screen zooming, optimizing background, and Doze on the Go.

As of now, Android N is available for devices like Pixel C devices, Nexus 9, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, and other general 4G devices.

Fusion prepares you before installing Nougat on your device

Before downloading Nougat on your device, remember that this is a final developer preview, not meant for users, but for developers. Therefore, it does not come as a surprise to find bugs or errors still existing in the system. You do have some features working well, but then others might accompany issues. If you are looking for a highly reliable and smooth working, then it is better to wait for the final release with complete set of working features.

Meanwhile, what things to consider if you are a developer, and want to get the taste of OS in its prerelease stage?

  • Get yourself a Sony Zperia Z3 device, a latest Nexus device, or a Pixel C device, loaded with this operating system.
  • Take a backup even before you start. You might encounter bugs or errors anytime. Having a backup will ensure you to restore default version with ease and that too quickly.
  • Enable the built-in backup feature already present with the device. Check the options ‘Automatic Restore’, and ‘Backup My Data’ to enable state. Backing up videos and photos should be done by getting your smartphone connected to PC.

“This is how you should download Nougat” says Fusion

Now since you have your backup in place, it is time now to download Android N 7.0. By checking out Android Nougat Developer Preview details, you can have a glimpse of what to expect.

  • Once you are through with the understanding, it is time now to visit the Android Beta Program website, and using your login details to sign in.
  • After you have signed in, scan the list of devices supporting Nougat. If you want to enroll your device, click “Enroll Device” button.
  • As soon as you have enrolled the device, start-getting updates related to Android 7.0 Nougat, same as getting current OS updates.

Update things manually by installing and downloading the system image for Android 7.0 N. This is not only a risky complicated process, but also updates happen manually rather than being automatic. It might not be the best option to follow, however if you still want it then just follow the instructions right here.

Restoring original version is an easier choice

Moving back to the original Android OS version, is very easy. In fact, it is almost same as enrolling, with the only difference that you need to click “Unenroll Device”. Once executed, you will receive an update on your device. After the update downloaded and installed, Android 7.0 Nougat will be uninstalled, while restoring the original Android version. Ensure that you have full backup of all user data, before doing this.

Some final words from Fusion

As an Android mobile application development company, we have been instrumental in creating apps for all the Android OS generations. Android Nougat brings quite new things to explore, but since in the pre-release phase, it is difficult to make any assumptions.

The developer’s preview seems promising, specifically when it comes to apps, as we will be able to create apps that enables VR seamless integration, save a great deal through battery optimization, taking full advantage of watching videos with PIP mode, incorporating enhanced notifications updates, and finally the apps gaining security with virus scanning taking place when device boots.

Fusion Informatics getting positive vibes with upcoming iOS 10 release

iOS-10-release_long

Most of you might be aware of the latest developments in iOS, with iOS 10 release in Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) held this month. What basically you can expect is a great deal of improvement in refreshing design, enhanced battery, and brand new features. However, just like previous versions, this latest iOS might not turn out to be compatible with existing, but outdated Apple devices.

The conference that took place from 13-17 June, did not see the actual release of the OS. Instead, what you had, is a glimpse of the true operating system release, later in September.The reason we are saying this, is due to the much awaited release of iPhone 7, going to take place around that time. Today, in this discussion, we will be discussing our views on the release of iOS 10, and the features releasing with the model.

Though Apple is yet to disclose what the actual features will be, we at Fusion Informatics, have our own opinions on the predictive features, you are about to witness in few months. Before we deeply dive into the functionalities, you must know that iOS 10 is going to be quite different from its predecessors. The OS will bring with itself, improved touch technology, 3D Touch, enhanced security, brand new technology for photo editing, and more.

  1. Siri getting extended to new avenues

Siri has been Apples favourite all way long. With time, Siri is just getting better, and believe it or not, even smarter. You have already seen too much happening around with Siri. However, we have a strong feeling that Siri will now have its spread over advanced navigation, car controlling, fitness tracking, predicting weather forecasts, and more. In addition, handling calls will be a brand new task added to the task list of the personal assistant, as well as delivering transcribed voice messages in the form of text.

So, you have voicemail integrated within Siri, interpreting sending and replies for a two way communication. Imagine, voice input processing for user profiling, enabling user recognition engine, to act as an intermediary between the user, and Siri ofcourse. This will let users to have a complete control over Siri, identifying individual members of the same family for example. Depending on which member wants to see what program on Apple TV Box, Siri will accordingly start the media, right after voice recognition.

  1. Hiding or deleting inbuilt apps will no more be a problem

Are you an Android user, or ever got a chance to use the OS? It is highly convenient to get rid of the default apps, or hide them from view, when using Android. However, iOS on the other hand, does not allow users to delete apps loaded in iPhone by default. However, you can expect this problem to vanish with iOS 10. What we feel is, iOS 10 will not just let users to exploit or enjoy apps, but even delete the unwanted stock apps.

  1. Multiple user accounts customized as per needs

As the title says, iOS 10 is expected to allow the customization of multiple user accounts, so that you have a unique household slate, corresponding to every individual user.

  1. 3D Touch seen in an advanced avatar

You might be already familiar with the Apples 3D Touch technology, performing a variety of tasks, on the pressure of fingertips. This technology has not just brought tremendous innovation, but also difficulties with the usage part. We are hoping to expect a lot more new things to happen, with options for hiding Game Center, Health, Maps, Tips, Stocks, and more. Peek & Pop state in soon to release iOS 10, will enable users to have a brief preview of the content inside the app. This will in turn let users to choose what they want to.

  1. Photos app will appear complete than ever

You will see a photos app, just like never witnessed before. It is a matter of just last year, when Apple discontinued the use of iPhoto app, both for iOS and Mac. We believe, advanced features to get introduced with iOS 10, in the form of EXIF data editing, adjusting components on an image, and fine-tuning the brightness through touch brushes.

  1. An extended battery life with limited device compatibility

iOS 9 had the capabilities to support the ageing iPad 2, as well as iPhone 4s. However, the trend may discontinue with iOS 10, as the latest OS will demand 512 MB RAM, cutting off old devices from the race. On the other hand, battery life has been a stupendous matter of concern for most Apple users. Good news is, you might expect a more powerful battery efficient processor with iPhone 7, letting iOS 10 be the first energy efficient Apple OS.

Fusion Informatics have high hopes with latest Apple OS

Being an iPhone/iPad application development company for years now, we are eagerly waiting for what the latest Apple offering has in store for us, as well as the avid app users. We have already created a bunch of apps for iPhone 6, as well as iOS 9, but we feel it would be a whole new experience doing the same with iOS 10, and iPhone 7.

With so many new features forecasted for the latest Apple offering, we personally feel it would be more of a challenging task, to leverage these capabilities into the apps, we will be building. Remember, the things we discussed, are just our predictions, based on the industry tal and buzz going around. However, we are confident of seeing most of them, when we get hold of the actual OS.

The features we just discussed, are definitely meant towards bringing a whole new revolution with iPhones. More importantly, it will change the perspective completely, related to designing and developing apps. It would certainly not be easy to build apps for iOS 10, especially with so many new features, as well as advanced capabilities in the existing ones. However, one thing is for sure. The things we will be seeing in iOS 10, and iPhone 7, are going to compete with Android phones, taking iPhones one notch higher, and setting new benchmarks related to the quality.

Why Android N over Marshmallow? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Have you been using Marshmallow for a while now? Are your looking for a desperate change in the form of Android N? What are the features that you are expecting from the brand new upcoming OS?

The questions are difficult to answer unless you get a glimpse of what to expect, by using the beta version. We had the privilege using the beta version, and what we analyzed, are the differentiating features that makes Android N a worthwhile OS to check out, especially for users who want to experience a change from using the Marshmallow OS.

7 Designing Practices to Adopt While Creating Apple TV Apps for tvOS

apple-tvDesigning apps for Apple tvOS is quite a different ball game altogether as compared with iPhone or iPad. The one evident difference can be seen in the OS at disposal: tvOS in case of Apple TV; iOS in case of iPhone or iPad. While another macro difference lies in the screen size. When creating apps for Apple TV, the apps get magnified to accommodate the television real estate. For iPad, the size of the app is small, and even smaller in case of an iPhone.

Since Apple TV can accommodate giant size of an app, the expectations of users in terms of entertainment and usability factors go even higher. We are going to discuss some useful tips disclosed by the tech giant itself. At a recent Apple TV tech talks, Apple disclosed how the apps be created by redefining an entire user experience to satisfy the end users.

  1. Reduce On Loading Time

Application loading time is a common phenomena showing up while an app is getting installed, downloaded, or opening up telling users that the app is in process. It is probably the most annoying thing to come across and disturbs the entire user experience. However, things could be settled by providing a fluid like app experience through a decrease in loading indicators.

Try to refrain from providing blank screens within an app. Users must be informed about the background tasks running, especially when they are critical in nature. An activity indicator like above can be provided as the most minimal measure. The modifications you can perform with these indicators could be in the form of feedback as well as time estimation provided with the indicator.

Making use of animations can make a great deal of difference in entertaining the users. This in turn also helps to cut down on the loading time. Think about this. If your app is taking too much of loading time, how about introducing a video game character in a fancy animation representing the indicator. Users will not only be enthralled, but also be able to wait for a while till the app loads completely.

  1. Have A Secured Authentication

Typing information is one hell of a task simply through the remote control accompanying Apple TV. Apple does provide a virtual keyboard, but making use of remote to type is one hell of a task. Hence, try to push the login page as much backward as you can in the series of app screens showing up. When you ask users for a mandatory signing in to use the app, they might feel frustrated or horrified right at the beginning itself.

Ask for minimal information and that too when needed. Ideally, taking their email address and password alone should do the trick. Through a temporary one time code system, you can let users’ access website through Smartphone that will be way beyond easier than typing the same with Apple TV. Enable users to switch between sessions with a great amount of ease, so that they need not to enter their credentials repeatedly on different pages.

  1. Cut Down Onboarding Screens

Avoiding onboarding screens or help screens acting as a manual can reduce a great deal of travelling within the app. Onboarding screens of no use as users have become smarter. They want to learn the apps by themselves and simultaneously get entertained in the process. Let them play around with the app and explore what is in the store for them. In such a scenario, design a user interface that is self explanatory. Specifically, when creating games, explain about the controls, during the game getting paused by itself. This will enable users to learn faster and in a more interactive way.

  1. Refrain From Using Cursors

Users prefer to be entertained on TV rather than working on it for professional use. Letting a cursor show up in your app could let users remind of old ways being on desktops, and slogging hard with every single click. Making use of a focus engine instead of a traditional cursor can help convey feedback to the users in a more communicative manner. Herein, users can conveniently change the navigation, rather than moving around the cursor that is cumbersome to handle.

  1. Tap An Emotional Connect

Imagine a new show launching soon. Where you prefer to watch it – TV, desktop, tablet, or mobile? Especially when you want to watch it with friends or family, what might be the best option? The answer is unanimous. It is television that appeals the most and connects with a wider audience easily keeping them together. Imagine same logic applicable in case of apps. Having apps with static elements but become dynamic while scrolling, could make things even more interesting, and in turn interactive in terms of handling.

  1. Keep App Clarity Intact

It goes without saying that every app needs clarity in terms of appearance and use. However, it is equally important to understand the difference between users interacting with a tvOS app and a mobile app. In a tablet or Smartphone app, the user has absolute freedom to use possibly everything appearing on the screen. On the other hand, between users and Apple TV there is a bridge in the form of Siri Remote enabling users to control TV through this remote. A few simple tips can do the trick such as:

  • Avoid using small fonts for a clean visibility
  • Use fonts not just big but even bold in appearance
  • Let menu button appear as back button so that users do not get lost
  1. Go For Immersive Experience

A TV screen is a lot bigger than you would expect. A resolution as big as 1920*1080 pixels, can act as a major canvas for designing for your apps. Test your application within a living room and then go for a bigger area to see the difference and making it appear amazing irrespective of the area you cover. Gradually increasing the distance will help you know what has to be done to modify things and keep it immersive all the time.

Designing apps for Apple TV require special expertise
