App Store supports legacy downloads, iPhone sales up 20% this quarter, and coolest iOS 7 features

If you're using an older Apple device such as the original iPad and still try to download application you have probably noticed that many are incompatible. Apple has tried to remedy that problem with a new feature in the App Store that allows users to download legacy versions of existing apps that are compatible with older devices.

The latest statistics are in for Apple's fiscal Q4 (Q3 2013) and the numbers show that iPhone sales have increased by 28% this quarter. The surprising thing about that fact is that when the statistics were published pre-orders for the iPhone 5C had only been available for a few days.

If you're looking forward to getting iOS 7 of your iPhone or iPad you may be wondering what new features you can look forward to. Check out this list of some of the coolest features in the new version of the operating system to get an idea of what iOS seven will bring to the table.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
