Apple GM Seeds for 2017 Releases

Gold Master Releases for 2017 Updates

Today, along with new iPhones, Apple Watches, and AppleTV 4K, Apple released the potential GM’s of all the new OS’ and Xcode 9. I say potential as there are times when a new GM is released if a serious problem is found.

You can download them from the Developer Portal, with the final release versions dropping on September 19th along with the new hardware.

iOS 11 Beta 3 Multi-tasking Close App Gesture

I am so happy that Apple decided to change the multi-tasking app closing gesture. I never cared for having to touch and hold on an icon waiting for the ‘X’ to appear. I much prefer the previous (and not current) way which is to swipe up to close.

I am hoping they realized that you cannot change a convention once it is that set in peoples minds without causing major frustrations.

There are numerous other changes in the new Beta 3, I am running it on my iPad Pro 12” and have been very happy with all the Beta releases so far, for me at least, they have been stable enough to use daily.
