La cuenta regresiva para la llegada del iPhone 11 está en marcha. Los fanáticos de los gadgets de la casa que construyeron Steve Jobs y Steve Wozniak cuentan las horas para tener en sus manos la última generación del smartphone que revolucionó al mundo.

 

Las cosas han cambiado sustancialmente desde el 29 de junio de 2007, día que el ‘primogénito’ vio la luz. Su llegada dio inicio a la era de los dispositivos táctiles. Para ese momento BlackBerry y su teclado Qwerty eran líderes absolutos y nada parecía ser lo suficientemente bueno como para acabar con su reinado. Pero…

12 años después el iPhone sigue siendo uno de los productos mejor valorados del mercado. Aunque la fidelidad de sus usuarios está cada vez más en entredichoAndroid se ha hecho cada vez más fuerte y Huawei empezó a competir en serio. El Orgullo de China, gracias al Efecto Trump por el momento solo se ocupa sobrevivir y Samsung parece que dejó definitivamente atrás la crisis que supuso las baterías explosivas del Galaxy Note 7. Además, la tecnológica de Corea del Sur disfruta de un trato privilegiado en Estados Unidos, mientras que la Guerra Comercial entre Washington y Beijing le puede salir muy cara a Apple en su propio territorio.

Los smartphones de Apple y Samsung, ¿son radiactivos?


Muchos de los que a finales de la década pasada compraron sin pensárselo demasiado el iPhone, hoy en día consideran muy costosa la oferta de la compañía de Cupertino. Un precio que no todos están dispuestos a pagar cuando pueden conseguir dispositivos mucho más económicos que ‘hacen lo mismo’.

 

De cualquier forma, estamos expectantes para ver qué onda con la nueva generación del smartphone que cambió al mundo. Falta poco.

Microsoft ends tests with xCloud gaming platform on iOS due to App Store policies

Microsoft started testing its xCloud gaming platform on iOS in February, but things have been complicated since then. The company announced today that it’s ending tests with xCloud on Apple’s mobile operating system due to strict App Store policies.

The xCloud Project allows users to play Xbox games anywhere via streaming with a high-speed internet connection. xCloud was being tested on Android since last year, and Microsoft released a preview version for iOS earlier this year for about 10,000 registered testers.

To comply with Apple’s TestFlight rules, Microsoft has limited xCloud testing on iOS to just one game, “Halo: The Master Chief Collection.” However, the company told The Verge that the project is being shut down on iOS due to strict App Store policies.

Microsoft hasn’t provided details about these App Store policies, but they’re probably referring to the fact that Apple rejects any app that offers its own catalog of apps or games within the App Store. In the meantime, xCloud will be available to Android users starting September 15.

Our Project xCloud preview TestFlight period has ended on iOS and we are focused on delivering cloud gaming as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate to Android customers beginning September 15.

Unfortunately, Apple is unlikely to approve Microsoft’s xCloud on the App Store, as the company has prevented other similar apps from being released for iOS. Last week, Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney criticized the company for anti-competitive practices after having Epic Games Store rejected on Apple’s platform.

The Steam Link app for iOS and tvOS was only approved on the App Store after a year, and only because its players can access their library of games while connected to their host Mac without a completely independent solution like xCloud.

While Apple tries to promote the iPhone, iPad, and even Apple TV as gaming devices with the Apple Arcade, these App Store restrictions certainly affect users. In contrast to Apple, Samsung announced today its new Galaxy lineup with a special version of the Xbox Game Pass app built-in with the xCloud service.
