F.lux Responds to Apple Night Shift

Posted by · 17194 views · Translate

F.lux, developers of the app that makes your display adapt to the time of day, has issued a statement following Apple's unveiling of Night Shift.

Although available for jailbroken iPhones, f.lux was rejected from the App Store and after users started sideloading the app, Apple told them to shut down their iOS version.

Now that Apple has unveiled Night Shift, essentially their own version of f.lux, the reasoning behind the company's opposition to the app is now clear.

In its response, F.lux said that it's proud to be "original innovators and leaders in this area" and called on Apple to allow their app on the App Store.

Today we call on Apple to allow us to release f.lux on iOS, to open up access to the features announced this week, and to support our goal of furthering research in sleep and chronobiology. As we continue to innovate and improve upon our ideas, we remain hopeful that we will have the opportunity to offer our best, new work to everyone who wants it.

Considering Apple's objections to f.lux in the past, it seems unlikely they will now let the app in; however, you can follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates. You can also sign this petition to allow f.lux on iOS.

I don't trust jailbreak because it will allow hackers to take over. Enjoy yours while it lasts I'm not risking it.

Not as much as you just because I don't want to jailbreak. You're a troll.

Well I don't jailbreak anymore. Apple has slowly been borrowing both android and jailbreak features to the point that it was not necessary. Yeah apple steals these ideas. They have from iOS apps too. As an end user I'm happy but they are pretty scumbag as they are loaded with cash. Anyway my further concern that there will be no more good ideas too steal from jailbreak developers as it becomes less popular.
