Weekly Roundup: iPhone 6 Release Date

by Aaron Brethorst | July 27, 2014

If the releases of the iPhone 5 and 5s are any indication, it seems almost certain that Apple will release the iPhone 6 on September 19, 2014. The device (devices?) will be announced at a media event on September 9. We'll likely see another two betas between now and the GM build of iOS 8.

How are your iOS 8 plans coming along? With only about 8 weeks to go, there isn't a ton of time left to get cracking on iOS 8-specific features for the launch window!

Best,
Aaron

BMYCircularProgressPullToRefresh

BMYCircularProgressPullToRefresh

Pull to fresh with circular progress view as used in the Beamly iOS app.

This version of the pull to refresh feature can be used both on UITableViews and UICollectionViews and it has been inspired by Sam Vermette's SVPullToRefresh.

When dealing with a custom pull to refresh view, often the native UIRefreshControl is not ideal as it is not customizable. A common customization besides the pull to refresh, is to have a circular progress view with the logo of the app to show during the dragging.
