Apple to release software update for iPhone slowdown

Apple to release software update for iPhone slowdown

Apple will release a test version of its iOS software next month that shows users the health of their batteries and will let them turn off a phone-slowing feature meant to prevent sudden shutdowns in iPhones with older batteries, Cook said in an interview with ABC News on Wednesday.

Cook said the phone-slowing software, released last year, was intended to make sure that iPhone users did not get cut off in the middle of an important call or text message because of an old battery.

We will tell somebody we are reducing your performance by some amount in order to not have an unexpected restart, and if you don’t want it, you can turn it off,” Cook said. e don’t recommend it because we think that people’s iPhones are really important to them and you can never tell when something is so urgent. r actions were all in service of the user.

An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment beyond Cook’s remarks or say when the update would be available to consumers.

Apple confirmed on Dec. 20 that software in iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE models to deal with dangers from ageing batteries could slow down the phone’s performance. Within days, Apple faced lawsuits over the phone slowing.

The issue struck a nerve on social media, where many voiced a theory that Apple intentionally slows down older phones to encourage customers to buy new ones. No credible evidence has emerged that Apple has ever done so. On Dec. 28, Apple issued a public apology to customers over the battery issue and said it has never purposely shortened the life of its products.

Apple also lowered the price of battery replacements for affected models from $79 to $29. The lower price could prod many consumers to replace their battery instead of buying a new phone, which in turn could lead to lower iPhone sales for 2018, Barclays analysts said in a note earlier this month.

A woman in Kollam, Kerala is being questioned after the charred body of her son was found close to their home.

When the police, upon a detailed search at the house, discovered the boy's sandals at the back, they inquired about it. When Jithu's mother Jayamol was questioned, her statement to the police was reportedly contradictory from what she told her husband.

Did Iulia Vantur just suggest she wanted to marry Salman?

Authors: Ecroaker. com Boosters.

There have been many rumours suggesting Salman Khan and Iulia Vantur's relationship. Gossip mongers had even predicted their marriage. However, nothing of that sort happened, at least as of now. Now the Romanian beauty made a statement that suggests that she indeed wanted to marry the handsome hunk.

In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, though Iulia did not directly say that she is or was in a relationship with Salman, and the two were supposed to get married, she made a statement hinting that at least she wanted to become his wife.

I am aware of the gossip. Most of it is not true. But I cannot stop people from spinning stories. I have a lot of respect for Salman. At the same time, I have no idea where life is taking me. Three years ago, I was all about being responsible and making plans, but not everything turns out the way we expect them to. Not everything is our will. What happens was meant to happen," the gorgeous diva told the publication when she was asked to comment on rumours of her impending marriage with Salman.

Though she did not directly say she wanted to marry Salman or there is any truth behind rumours of she and the actor dating each other, Iulia saying that not everything turns out the way we expect apparently holds a sense of sadness about something not happening.

Iulia further said that it is Salman for whom she started to build her career in singing. She added that the superstar helped her a lot in the process, but also clarified that as of now she has no plans to join Bollywood.

I had never planned to come to India to work. There was no ambition, no fool-proof plan. Salman is a good friend and he guided me, encouraging me to sing. I never thought that I would be able to sing in Hindi but he supported me. I started singing because of him. I had no plans to be a part of Bollywood but I also like surprises at the same time," she told Mumbai Mirror.

Iulia has often been seen together with the Khan family, and she appears to be almost like a family member. She accompanies Salman and his family in most of their vacations and parties.

All these made people believe that the two are indeed dating each other, and are likely to tie the knot. But Salman on multiple occasions cleared that she will never get married.
