As you probably heard it all over the news, on 21 March, Apple will hold a big media event and unveil a number of new devices, namely, the iPhone SE, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro and the updated Apple Watch. Of course, it’s an important date for Apple fans, just like any other company’s presentation.
Apple has publicly acknowledged the existence of a bug that may brick the iPhone or any other iOS device when the date is set to January 1st, 1970. According to a dedicated Apple Support
According to a number of reports from users from different countries, setting the date to January 1st, 1970 can permanently brick your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 9 or higher. The bug in the mobile operating system makes it possible to turn the device with Apple’s A7, A8, A8X, A9, and A9X processor into a completely useless thing.
Below you can take a look at the video showing the bug.
Apple has just seeded the third iOS 9.3 beta to developers for testing. This is probably the last but one build for developers released until the alleged debut of iOS 9.3 in March alongside the new 4-inch iPhone 5SE, iPad Air 3 and the updated Apple Watch. The list of improvements and enhancements includes bug fixes and refinements to the features added in previous betas. These features include the Night Shift mode, secure Notes, updated News and CarPlay. iOS 9.3 Beta 2 brought a separate Control Center toggle for Night Shift, which is present in the third beta, so looks like the change is permanent.
According to the latest report from Macotakara reporters, the long-awaited 4-inch iPhone 5SE will come in three colors, namely, Silver, Space Gray, and Pink. Moreover, sources add, the Pink color will be closer to the shade of the iPad nano 7G and iPod touch 6G, but not to the Rose Gold color of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s.
It is no secret that Apple’s long-term market rival, Google, pays the company to remain one of the default search engines on iOS devices like iPhones, iPads and iPod touch units. Up until now, the exact sum paid by the search giant annually have been unknown to public. Thanks to the details of Oracle's recent copyright lawsuit against Google, which were obtained by reliable Bloomberg reporters, we now know that in 2014, the sum spent by Google to remain one of the default search engines on Apple’s portable devices accounted for impressive $1 billion. By the way, this figure goes in line with the one shared by reliable insiders back in 2012, so I guess we can believe the recent report.
Apple has recently released iOS 9.2.1 to users worldwide. The release comes after several weeks of testing performed by registered developers. The latest update contains a number of minor bug fixes and security enhancements, so it is recommended for all users to download and install iOS 9.2.1 on their compatible iPhones, iPads and iPod touch units.
According to the latest data shared by Apple, the iOS 9 adoption rate has recently reached 75%. What this means is that the number of active iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users has grown 5% since November. Things like iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus sales, the introduction of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and the release of iOS 9.2 contribute to the growth of the iOS 9 adoption greatly. The data on iOS 9 adoption is based on the App Store usage and is a reliable source of information.
As it was already mentioned on our website, Apple on Tuesday officially released iOS 9.2 to users worldwide. The latest update features a number of important bug fixes and improvements for Safari, Mail and Apple Music and is available for all users of compatible iPhones, iPads and iPod touch units. One can upgrade to iOS 9.2 either through iTunes for Mac or Windows, or use the OTA update, which should be available through the Settings app.
Apart from the enhancements mentioned in our previous post, it turns out that Apple has also fixed the issue causing iPad Pro unresponsiveness after charging. Previously, a special support page suggested that the company was investigating the issue, while now that same page indicates that “updating your iPad Pro to iOS 9.2 or later” should fix everything.
Following the release of the first testing version for a small number of iOS users last month, Microsoft has just released Cortana to users in the United States of America and China. As of Wednesday, Microsoft’s virtual assistant is available on the App Store and can be downloaded for free by all those who have an US or Chinese account.
Apple on Tuesday released iOS 9.2 to users worldwide. The latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system features a wide number of stability, security and performance enhancements as well as some changes for Apple Music, Mail and Safari. Apart from that, the most-recent update brought the support for Lightning to SD Card Reader, Arabic language for Siri and some other less conspicuous enhancements for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users.
According to the latest data shared by Apple, iOS 9 adoption rate has recently reached 70%. What this means is that 70% of active iPhones, iPads and iPod touch units are now running iOS 9 or a higher version of Apple’s mobile operating system. As usual, the data is based on the App Store usage, so it can be called a reliable source of information.
According to the latest report from people familiar with the matter, Apple may replace the 3.5mm headphone jack on the next-generation iPhone with a multi-purpose Lightning connector. Apart from that, the new phone called presumably the iPhone 7 may come with redesigned EarPods supporting the new output method. Such rumors have been shared by a Japanese website Mac Otakara. The website has a good track record when it comes to Apple gadgets, so it is a pretty reliable source of information.
According to the latest patent filing published earlier this week by the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO), Apple might be working on a technology that would allow iPhones to detect touch input performed while wearing gloves. Currently, using iPhones in winter is quite a tricky and inconvenient task as the displays of these devices, as well as of iPads and iPod touch units, don’t respond to users wearing gloves made of fabric, leather or any other material. The patent application is entitled “Glove Touch Detection” and it was filed back in 2014.
