>> APPLE'S IoT ENTRANCE INFECTED WITH A BUG
As the old carpenters advice goes: "measure twice, ... cut once".
the fray of the Internet of Things, nothing could go more badly than with
the release of iOS8 and the discovery of a bug within
HealthKit so bad, that it has promted the
immediate removal of all HealthKit enabled applications from the app store
leaving users and developers confused as to what is going on.
Could this potentially hamper their entry into the IoT space? - only time will tell.
Brian Mueller, the developer of CARROT Fit, an application affected by this
tweet has since been removed - it isn't clear
if the developer did so on his own, or if the Cupertino giant "convinced"
him to remove it in the hope to sensor such discussion and minimize any
collateral damage that could be associated with the issue.
Details as to what the critical "bug" was has yet to be disclosed -
so it is uncertain exactly how it was found or what impact it had to users
of the said products - one can only hope that it didn't cause users harm
as has previously been concerns of medical professionals as
applications potentially become replacement doctors.
Apple states they are working on a fix to the issue and plan to release an
update before the end of the month - but has the damage been done already?
If they were unable to validate and test their own services before launch -
what other potential issues could exist.
