When Apple last updated iOS, I saw a lot of comments on Twitter that went along the lines of, "Is it safe to install?" and "So. Many. Bugs." This could explain why, according to 9to5Mac and others, Apple is considering its first public beta for the operating system with version 8.3.
BARCELONA, Spain--BlackBerry is going to flesh out its future device strategy tomorrow here at Mobile World Congress, but in the meantime the company is offering more of its core software and services to larger smartphone platforms, including Google's Android, Apple's iOS and Microsoft's Windows.

The growth of mobile and the introduction of the Amazon Seller App for mobile devices helped drive sales by Amazon Sellers to 2 billion items in 2014.
"Panic" seems like the appropriate name for an app developer when you hear about a recent App Store fracas the creator of Transmit iOS recently got into with Apple. As the firm recounted in a strange (and no doubt sympathy-inducing) blog post, it recently removed what sounded like a popular feature in its file management tool: the ability to share files to iCloud, Dropbox and similar services. Anyone who has grappled with Apple in the past will probably not be surprised about iCloud.
