Nearly 2 years ago, I purchased an Apple iPad 2 directly from Apple Store, more as a Christmas present. At that point in time, my iPad was pre-installed with iOS version 5, which over a period time I upgraded to iOS 5.0.3 when Apple rolled out new upgrades. However, I stopped at the last version of 5.0.x, primarily because there were a lot of review articles mentioning poor battery management after 5.1.x was introduced. It never really got fixed (although some users did claim their iOS devices were functioning well after the fix was applied). I never felt confident at that time.
Remember about a year ago, Apple introduced iOS 6; which was showcased by Tim Cook, CEO of Apple after Steve Jobs stepped down. Instead of bringing more innovation to the users, I find that this version was carelessly rolled out and “fault” in a way, that Tim Cook has to apologized publicly to the users for the inconveniences it caused.
This morning, I coincidentally checked my iPhone for any operating system upgrade, and surprisingly, there is iOS 7.0.3 available. Users can now access their Apple devices to upgrade their iOS.

Finally, I have some time to myself on a Sunday afternoon. I decided to take the opportunity to upgrade my current WordPress version to Release Candidate 1.
Usually, non-production versions are not pushed out to the public for automatic upgrade. Therefore, I have to approach this in the traditional fashion of importing the setup file directly to the WordPress folder for installation.
The entire process took me less than 3 minutes; voila! It’s all done – up and running… So far, everything looks fine and good. Keep it going, WordPress.
With a sense of curiosity, I decided to give WordPress 3.3. Beta 3 a try. Well, guess what? Besides the fanciful stuffs, such as new:
- Media uploader
- Improved admin bar
- Fly out admin menus
I realised I could not upload any image on this post. It may have got something to do with my plugin. So I’m going to check it out to see if that’s the case.
In addition, the new beta release seems no longer “respect” the function, $user_level. Not sure if it’s only me, but it is what’s happened to my script.
