John McCain Got What He Wanted In iOS 7, And Thanks Apple For It
It seems Apple's new mobile operating system has something for everyone: even Sen. John McCain. During the Cupertino, Calif. company's recent tax avoidance appearance in Washington, D.C., Apple CEO Tim Cook was grilled by Sen. McCain, who at one point asked the chief executive officer an unexpected question. "What I really wanted to ask is why the hell I have to keep updating the apps on my iPhone," McCain asked. With a laugh, Cook responded: "Sir, we're trying to make them better all the time." Of course, McCain got exactly what he wanted in iOS 7, which allows users to have their iDevice auto-update iOS applications. While Apple clearly had the feature in development for some time, McCain nevertheless posted a Twitter update thanking Cook et al. for the new feature:
