iOS 11.4 brings stereo pairs and multi-room audio with AirPlay 2

HomePod, the breakthrough wireless speaker from Apple, now delivers an even more immersive listening experience throughout the home with support for HomePod stereo pairs and a new multi-room audio system in iOS 11.4. This free software update introduces the most advanced, easy to use, wireless multi-room audio system using AirPlay 2 to play music in any room from any room, move music from one room to another or play the same song everywhere using an iOS device, HomePod, Apple TV or by asking Siri. HomePod is available in the US, UK and Australia and arrives in Canada, France and Germany starting June 18.1

HomePod combines Apple-engineered audio technology and advanced software to set a new audio quality standard for a small speaker, delivering high-fidelity sound and a wide soundstage. Featuring a large, Apple-designed woofer for deep, clean bass, a custom array of seven beamforming tweeters that provide pure high frequency acoustics with incredible directional control and powerful technologies built right in, HomePod is able to preserve the richness and intent of the original recordings.

HomePod with room-filling sound

With two HomePod speakers set up as a stereo pair, this soundstage gets even wider, delivering room-filling sound that is more spacious than a traditional stereo pair from a speaker that’s just under 7-inches tall. Using spatial awareness to sense their location in the room, each HomePod automatically adjusts the audio to sound great wherever it is placed and sound great together, using an Apple-designed wireless peer-to-peer direct link to communicate with each other and play music completely in sync.

homepod airplay

With an A8 chip in each speaker, each HomePod is able to play its own audio channel — left or right — while separating out both the ambient and direct energy. This innovative stereo sound provides a wide, almost three dimensional soundstage for an incredible listening experience anywhere in the room. A HomePod stereo pair creates room filling sound with greater bass extension, resulting in a deeper, more accurate reproduction of low frequencies.

Setting up a stereo pair is simple. When a second HomePod is set up in the same room, the user is prompted whether they would like to form a stereo pair, and in just a matter of minutes, the room is filled with amazing audio. Even though these two speakers act as one, each HomePod communicates with each other so that only one speaker responds to Siri requests.

iOS 12 Beta 2 released!

IOS 12 Beta 2 was released to developers for two weeks after the first beta was released for iOS 12, which was promoted by Apple at WWDC 2018 event and focused on high performance.

The feedback from users and developers is good for the first beta release of iOS 12. Even though they may experience difficulties with location services, they are offering a better experience than previous beta versions of previous iOS versions.

Here’s what’s new in iOS 12 Beta 2!

In the new Beta version, the splash screen of Display Time and Voice Notes has been changed. The location icon was changed while the Photos application was switching to a larger font for the Media Types and Albums sections.

The location service icon in the status bar is now a little smaller and nicer. Besides, users must be in the same Beta version to make group interviews via FaceTime. So, it’s not possible to make a group conversation between two iPhones or iPads with iOS 12 Beta 1 and Beta 2 installed.

iOS 12 Beta 2

In iOS 12 Beta 2, where battery usage graphics are improved, the screen duration feature now allows you to view usage on a single device or on all devices. In addition to these, a number of minor innovations and changes have been made in the second beta, which fixes the previous version of the errors.

The charts for activity and battery level for the last 24 hours have been redesigned in iOS 12 beta 2, and some of the wording has been updated in this section.

Apple has removed a toggle for clearing Screen Time data, and the interface for adding time limits to apps from the main Screen Time screen has been tweaked. In the first beta, when you tapped an app it went right into the limits interface, but now tapping on an app displays more info on the app, including daily average use, developer, category, and more, and lets you tap to set a limit.

Apple’s iOS 12 securely and automatically shares emergency location with 911

iPhone users in the United States who call 911 will be able to automatically and securely share their location data with first responders beginning later this year with iOS 12, providing faster and more accurate information to help reduce emergency response times.

Approximately 80 percent of 911 calls today come from mobile devices, but outdated, landline-era infrastructure often makes it difficult for 911 centers to quickly and accurately obtain a mobile caller’s location. To address this challenge, Apple launched HELO (Hybridized Emergency Location) in 2015, which estimates a mobile 911 caller’s location using cell towers and on-device data sources like GPS and WiFi Access Points.

Technology for Emergency

Apple today announced it will also use emergency technology company RapidSOS’s Internet Protocol-based data pipeline to quickly and securely share HELO location data with 911 centers, improving response time when lives and property are at risk. RapidSOS’s system will deliver the emergency location data of iOS users by integrating with many 911 centers’ existing software, which rely on industry-standard protocols.

“Communities rely on 911 centers in an emergency, and we believe they should have the best available technology at their disposal,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “When every moment counts, these tools will help first responders reach our customers when they most need assistance.”

iPhone-911

In keeping with Apple’s focus on privacy, user data cannot be used for any non-emergency purpose and only the responding 911 center will have access to the user’s location during an emergency call.
“911 telecommunicators do extraordinary work managing millions of emergencies with little more than a voice connection,” said RapidSOS CEO, Michael Martin. “We are excited to work with Apple to provide first responders a new path for accurate, device-based caller location using transformative Next Generation 911 technology.”

The FCC requires carriers to locate callers to within 50 meters at least 80 percent of the time by 2021. iOS location services are capable of exceeding this requirement today, even in challenging, dense, urban environments. This new feature allows Apple to make these benefits available to local 911 centers now rather than years from now.

“We’re thrilled that Apple is giving 911 centers access to device-based location data via a thoroughly-tested, standards-based approach,” said Rob McMullen, President of the National Emergency Number Association, the 911 Association. “This will accelerate the deployment of Next Generation 911 for everyone, saving lives and protecting property.”

Charging revolution for new iPhone models!

New iPhone models that are expected to be introduced by Apple continues to come with new and exciting claims. Last but not least, the iPhone 9 has been in great demand for fast charging innovation.

iPhone 9 will be assertive about fast charging!

Rosenblatt Securities analyst Jun Zhang explained that 2018 will offer faster charging capabilities in iPhone models. Accordingly, Apple will move to 9V 2A and 5V 3A charging systems instead of the existing 5V 2A. It is said that the company will supply new fast charge chipsets from Power Integrations.

Apple charge

In this sense, Power Integrations will be the main supplier for charging solutions for all new iPhone and iPad devices instead of ON Semiconductor and NXP Semiconductor. The situation changes with the 6.1-inch LCD screen and the iPhone 9. The device is meant to use Texas Instruments components instead of Broadcom components for wireless charging technology. Because of this change, it is thought that the company wants to profit from the parts.

Where do this update come from?

The analyst says the company has several reasons for updating the charge. With this move, it is shared that more applications support, faster recharging and better competition with Android smartphones. Let’s also note that Apple offers the fast charging function in the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus models for the first time.

Thanks to the new 2018 iPhone models, the company’s year-to-year growth in iPhone sales will also increase in the second half of this year. Apple has sold 3.1 percent more smartphones for the second fiscal quarter. It is also claimed by Foxconn that new smartphones will be produced one month in advance. The company plans to produce more for the iPhone 9, which is expected to be lower priced than the other two models that will have OLED panels of 5.5 inches and 6.5 inches.

Those who want to use iOS 12 will wait for September

The WWDC 18 event introduced a new operating system that Apple has just introduced and has won. Of course the users wanted to download and use iOS 12 immediately after watching this activity, but unfortunately the new operating system was only offered to the developers.

iPhone users will wait a little longer for the new iOS because Apple will be using the new operating system with new iPhone models. For this reason, for the new iOS 12 users will be waiting for the autumn, September.

Beta version available this month

Users will be able to download the beta version of iOS 12 at the end of this month, but there is no definite date for it. Apple is already finding it more appropriate to give ambiguous news in the past instead of making long-term promises in recent times. By the end of June, the beta version is expected to be offered to the user.

What about iOS 12?

We all know that iOS 11 is a troubled update. If this is the case then Apple will avoid major innovations in the iOS 12 update to us.

augmentedreality

iOS 12 will usually not go beyond what we have been doing to correct mistakes and update some minor enhancements. The latest news and leaks are already confirming our sayings.

We said we did not expect a design change in iOS 12, but that does not mean that some of the applications that come with the iPhone will not change. Our applications like Photos, Camera, Health can get Apple a new design. Another issue that will change the name of the iBooks app and leak only “Books”.

New operation system for new Macbook

At the WWDC 18 event, which was held on the first week of June and the first working day, there were innovations in MacOS for the iPhone models at the same time. We will present it to you in another news, but with the new MacOS, night mode usage is offered. It was a question put on top of the users and especially the programmers, and it was finally there.

A detailed research and forecast report was prepared by Fast Company on iPhone X sales ratios. Based on iPhone sales figures by data in 2018, we can say that Apple is focusing on new strategies. According to the report prepared by Apple Fast Company, it is not satisfied with iPhone sales. That’s why Apple is expected to reduce purchases for new iPhone orders. On this count, Apple, now aiming to get rid of the phone problem, seems to be unable to keep the product up if it does not develop a strategy for the new X model!

iPhone X, not sold!

There are many reports for iPhone X. While all of these reports reveal Apple’s position, strategies for the next models would also come out. Apple will not produce the phone that is not sold by stepping back in purchases. When the X model is renewed and put on the market, it is expected that the price will be regulated for the sake of increasing sales figures. Such an intervention is essential for the revival of the model and the deserved recognition of its worth!

With a bigger screen and more affordable price, the model predicted to achieve a better success in the marketplace is Apple’s problem for now! It’s easy to see how having satisfied customers could quickly stack up to significantly fewer phones sold for Apple. Apple is expected to announce iPhone sales of between 50 and 53 million in the three months to the end of March 2018. Some regulations will probably be made in future production and sales plans!

Apple Watch saved the life of the young girl!

Interesting event happened to a young girl using Apple Watch! The smart watch that instantly measures important information about health saved the girl’s life by pointing out something wrong in the young girl’s body. When used with the iPhone, the smart watch has access to almost any information of the person’s body. Thanks to this information, the young girl’s life has been saved!

Deanna Recktenwald, a Florida citizen, is an 18-year-old young girl. When the young girl was in church, Apple watch warned her and her mother. The young girl’s heart starts to beat at 190 strokes per minute, and then Apple’s smart watch indicates that the person must be taken to the hospital for that pulse. After that, the young girl goes to the hospital and becomes aware of serious health problems! Her mother stated that she did not know that the watch could give such a warning in her condition.

Apple Watch saved the life!

The girl using the Apple watch was taken to the hospital with an immediate hourly report. Then the fact that the heart burden increased due to the kidney failure of the daughter appeared. The young girl who learns that only 20% of her kidneys are working will be among the transfer candidates. Apple CEO Tim Cook mentioned the event in the name of his company. Cook, who reported that he was very happy for the situation of the young girl, concluded by declaring that such events were not the first.

The pulse rate measured as 190 may cause life-threatening conditions. This data, which indicates that she is beating too much, appeared in the young girl’s body due to kidney failure. Those who ask for an Apple watch will have to think a bit more detail. Elderly people, especially those who want to control their health, can get support using Apple smart clock technology.

iOS 11 is better than Android!

Some information was shared about the iOS 11 usage rate introduced in the summer of the past year. According to what is shared on the App Store support page, iOS 11 was installed at 76 percent of all active iOS devices by April 22, 2018.

As with all previous iOS 11 releases, iOS 11.3 is compatible with the iPhone 5S or later, iPad mini 2 or later and 6th generation iPod touch or later.

For iOS 11, the 76 percent rate is slightly lower than the previous operating system. iOS 10 was around 80 percent of active iOS devices. At the moment 19 percent of other active iOS devices are using iOS 10, while 5 percent of iOS users are using older operating iOS versions.

iOS cihazlardaki iOS 11 kullanım oranı ne kadar?

What about Android?

When we look at the Android side, the rate of using the current operating system seems quite low. The latest version of Android, the Android Oreo, has a 4.6 percent usage rate on active devices. A large percentage of Android users are using Lollipop, Marshmallow and Nougat operating systems, which appear in 2014, 2015 and 2016, respectively.

iOS cihazlardaki iOS 11 kullanım oranı ne kadar?

The most important reason why Android is so far behind iOS is that Android makers have not brought the latest operating system to the end user yet. It seems that the probability of recovery is quite low in the near future. Also, all iPhones are not compatible with the older versions, which is a quite reason for the users to upgrade their iOS to iOS 11. If you have a compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, Apple should automatically prompt you to install the update.

Forbes the reason to get iOS 11 as: “Apple iOS 11.3 is ‘the big one’ because it will give users full control of how their devices function for the first time. Controversially Apple admitted it previously throttled device performance as batteries age to maintain system stability. The fact users didn’t know this has prompted no less than 59 class action lawsuits and global government scrutiny with claims this throttling misled owners into buying new handsets when they only needed a new battery.”

iPhone SE 2 Release Date and Features

Apple’s new registration application for 11 different iPhone smartphone models has become a hot issue on the agenda. It seems that the iPhone SE 2 will be released soon. Apple has made a record of a mysterious device this week in the Eurasian Economy Commission database. This device is considered to be iPhone SE 2, the successor to the original iPhone SE model, which is likely to catch a highly acclaimed and successful sales figure.

It should be noted that Apple products are being pushed into the market within 1-2 months after the application to this commission. Of course, it can not be a coincidence that the event of WWDC 2018 is will be held 2 months later.

11 different iPhone SE 2

11 different iPhone SE 2 record is also a remarkable detail. On the other hand, we estimate that this is due to different color options and storage options. We guess that SE 2 will attract attention again with updated hardware and possibly design along with its ease of use by one hand and affordable price tag compared to other iPhone models.

iPhone-SE-2

The original iPhone SE was announced in March 2016, but it didn’t get a significant update in 2017 other than a bump in storage. Lots of rumours point to a new version of the device being launched early or relatively early in 2018.

Features of iPhone SE 2

The iPhone SE 2, expected to have a 0.2 inch larger screen than the original iPhone SE, is expected to meet us with a 4.2-inch IPS LCD screen. The second generation iPhone SE, which will take its power from the A10 Fusion chip used in the iPhone 7 series, will come with 2 GB of system memory.

To briefly recall the technical details of the A10 Fusion, TSMC’s 16nm production architecture, the A10 Fusion processor hosts a total of four kernel. The processor capable of reaching a frequency of 2.34 Ghz is accompanied by a GPU based on the 6-core PowerVR Rogue architecture. The iPhone SE 2, which is supposed to have 32/128 GB of storage capacity, is expected to be powered by a 1700 mAh pulse.

When Will We Meet iPhone With 3 Cameras?

Apple is awaiting the release of iPhone models for the next year. For smartphones that will take the place of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X models, the claims do not end as usual. Finally, the rumors about the 3-camera iPhone model have created excitement.

iPhone with 3 cameras

According to an allegation by Yuanta Secuirties analyst Jeff Pu, Apple will be facing users with a 3-camera iPhone smartphone in the second half of 2019. On the other hand, Pu has not shared more details about the subject.

It is also worth noting that the camera system to be used in the smart phone last month has been suggested to have a 5x zoom 6P lens design. It is not known exactly whether this convergence will be optical, digital or hybrid. It is also estimated that this rear camera will have a lens of at least 12 Megapixels resolution.

It’s important to note that this rumor doesn’t relate to the next iPhone — which will launch in the fall of this year — but rather the 2019 iPhone model, which we expect to launch in the fall of 2019.

The third lens to be added is probably the first to bring the 3x optical zoom feature to the iPhone series. On this view, users will be able to magnify the image 3x in the viewfinder without blurring the quality as in digital zoom. Note that the iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X models have a 2x optical zoom feature.

If the installation of the three-lens rear camera will take place in the Plus and X series flagship models, we can definitely look at it. Predictions are that third-generation iPhone X or iPhone X Plus models will meet users on September 2019.

The Huawei P20 Pro has managed to attract attention as the first camera with three cameras. It has 40 Megapixel lens, 20 Megapixel monochrome lens and 8 Megapixel telephoto lens. In addition, the P20 Pro camera can zoom in 3x.

iOS 11.3 is available today

iOS 11.3 delivers exciting new immersive augmented reality experiences, new Animoji for iPhone X users, access to personal health records in the Health app and more. This free software update also offers customers more visibility into the battery health and performance of their iPhone.

New AR Experiences

The introduction of ARKit with iOS 11 put augmented reality into the hands of hundreds of millions of iPhone and iPad users, making iOS the world’s biggest AR platform. With iOS 11.3, apps can now deliver AR experiences that use vertical surfaces like walls and doors, in addition to horizontal surfaces like tables and chairs, and more accurately map to irregularly shaped surfaces like circular tables.

Using advanced computer vision techniques to find and recognize the position of 2D images such as signs, posters and artwork, ARKit can integrate these real world images into AR experiences such as filling a museum with interactive exhibits or bringing a movie poster to life. The view of the real world through the camera now has 50 percent greater resolution and supports auto-focus for an even sharper perspective.

Animoji

Four all-new Animoji bring iPhone X users’ expressions to life as a lion, bear, dragon or skull. The A11 Bionic chip and TrueDepth camera give users the ability to record and send Animoji messages (and even create Animoji karaoke videos) using their voice and more than 50 different facial muscle movements.

Business Chat

Business Chat is a new way for users to communicate directly with businesses using the Messages app on iPhone and iPad. Starting today, Business Chat will be available in beta in the US and top businesses in retail, finance and hospitality will begin rolling out this new messaging feature for customers. When searching for a business in Maps, Safari, Search or Siri on iPhone and iPad, users will see the option to contact the business using Messages to ask a question about a product or service, or make a purchase using Apple Pay. These conversations can be continued on Apple Watch or Mac. Users are always in control of whether they share any contact information with a business on Business Chat.

Health Records

The new Health Records feature helps patients of more than 40 health systems including Duke, NYU Langone, Stanford and Yale view their medical records from multiple institutions right from their iPhone. With the inclusion of these new institutions, patients have greater access to their medical information including lab results, medications, conditions and more. Health Records data is encrypted and protected with a passcode.

Data & Privacy

iOS 11.3 and macOS 10.13.4 introduce updated data and privacy information that makes it easier than ever for users to understand how their personal data may be used. A new privacy icon and detailed privacy information will appear whenever Apple asks for access to personal information to enable features, secure Apple services or personalize an iOS experience.

When Will iOS 12 Be Promoted?

The date of WWDC 2018, where Apple introduces new software every year, has begun to be clarified. It is actually one of the biggest event in the world because global tech lovers keep waiting for it for the rest of the year. This is the time we are officially informed of new Apple softwares and products such as iOS 12 and iPhone SE 2. Well, when will this event be organized in 2018?

When will iOS 12 be promoted?

Apple is organizing an event for developers and other tech lovers every June. Known as the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), this event introduces new software for iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV and Apple Watch. Apart from the software, the new MacBook models are also introduced.

WWDC-2018-ios 12

There is no official statement from Apple about when WWDC 2018 will be held. It is estimated that the company will choose the McEnery Convention Center in California like the event in the previous year. The McEnery Convention Center is reserved for other events to be held during the second, third and fourth weeks of June. The first week of June (4-8 June) looks available on the reservation list of the congress center.

Apple does not have Apple’s name on the list of the congress center until the announcement of the event dates. For this reason we can say that WWDC 2018 will take place between June 4-8. iOS 12 is also likely to be promoted on Monday, June 4, the first day of your event.

On WWDC 2018, iOS 12, macOS 10.14, watchOS 5 and tvOS 12 will be introduced. The event is expected to introduce new Macbook models and the iPad Pro with Face ID, as well.

In the past year, 5000 developers and 1000 Apple engineers attended the conference and the ticket prices are around $1,599. Tickets are offered as a result of the lottery drawn between those who want to participate in the event.

Are Release Date and Feature of iPhone SE 2 Clear?

According to information given on the China-based website, it is claimed to promote the iPhone SE 2 model at WWDC 2018, the gigantic event where Apple is meeting with software developers. Despite the fact that many of the arguments make sense, some of the details reveals that this is not a total information, but the estimation.

Before making sure of the release date, let’s have a look at the features of iPhone SE 2.

What will the iPhone SE 2 offer?

The A10 processor, with 2 GB of RAM and two storage options of 32 GB or 128 GB, is expected to continue to use the Touch ID security system instead of switching to Face ID. Apple wants to keep Touch ID in order to keep up with iOS 12 and keep costs low. In SE 2, which will be a model that Apple considers the costs, Apple’s previous generation of processors will be preferred.

iphone se 2 release

Along with this information, it is claimed that the screen size will increase to 4.2 inches. If there is such a change, the rate may be effective even if it plays a lot, but it can change the entire design language. This change is unquestionable that the SE series will affect the comfort of use.

Except for this information, according to the KGI report, there was an allegation that we could face a refurbished SE model with 4.7″ screen and wireless charging doping. However, the date of the report was quite old. KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo denied claims about radically changing screen-to-screen ratio, wireless charging support, and 3D sensing.

Since summer, rumors are circulating about iPhone SE. Ming-Chi Kuo stated that he did not hear anything about such innovations, and that such and such estimates are a speculation. If we were to quickly sort out the described and definite technical specifications of the device:

  • 4.2 inch HD screen
  • Apple A10 chipset
  • 2 GB RAM and 32 – 128 GB ROM
  • 5 Mp front camera, 12 Mp rear camera
  • 1700 mAh battery

What’s coming with iOS 11.3?

Performance issue is being resolved with iOS 11.3, the next version of iOS operating system. In addition, Apple announced the coming innovations with iOS 11.3 on its website. Let’s take a look at the innovations that will come together.

Test results of IOS 11.3, which is made available for developers, emerged. It can be seen that performance in published GeekBench scores clearly increased.

The single core result has risen from 1306 to 1510. In the test where all the cores are used, the scissors in the middle is getting more open. The multi-core score of 2247 goes up to 1621 with the 11.3 version.

New Animoji Characters

The animation that comes with iPhone X, thanks to TrueDepth camera technology, allows you to send emoticons in three dimensions by sensing your facial expressions.

With iOS 11.3, there are 4 new animations. These are lions, bears, dragons and skulls. With these 4 animations, there will be a total of 16 animations that iPhone users can use.

Augmented Reality technology was one of the issues that became important with iOS 11. With iOS 11.3, the operating system’s AR technology goes even further. With ARKit 1.5, which comes with iOS 11.3, horizontal surfaces such as tables and chairs can now be detected on vertical surfaces such as walls or doors. At the same time, the ARKit is now able to perceive items with irregular shapes such as a round table.

On the other hand, another feature that comes to mind about AR is 2D stuff. Plates, posters or works of art can now be perceived by ARKIT. The user will be able to interactively view 2D items on the camera. For example, by reading the poster of a work of art in a museum, you will be able to see and experience the 3-dimensional state of that work on your phone. Finally, for ARKIT, the camera will offer 50% better resolution and will have support for auto focus.

Let’s just say that this feature will only be available after iPhone 6 and later.

At the same time, the power management system, which reduces the processor speed, can be turned off in case of short battery life and shortened battery life in order to extend the life of the device.

Offered under the name Business Chat, this feature allows customers to communicate with the organization only by messaging without having to go to or search for the institution. This feature, which will be released as Beta with 11.3, will initially be supported by Wells Fargo, Hilton, Lowe’s, Discover and a number of other companies.

Tim Cook’s graduation talk was announced with Animoji!

Duke University announces Tim Cook’s graduation talks to be held in May with an Animoji video on YouTube.

Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, graduated from Duke University in 1988. As a graduate student, Tim Cook will make a speech on graduation ceremony on May 13th and this event has turned into a great gesture from the University of Duke.

Tim Cook in Animoji videos

Duke University announces in the form of Animoji that Tim Cook will speak on graduation via YouTube channel. Tim Cook is probably Duke’s most famous alum at the moment, so it makes sense that he accepted to speak to the graduating students in May, but the foxy form he appears in at the end of the video shows how proud Apple is of its iPhone X’s FaceID and Animoji creations.

You can watch the Animoji video here, which Tim Cook also plays.

Duke University President Vincent E. Price made the announcement, touting Cook’s accomplishments at both Apple and in his advocacy for social justice. Duke’s graduation will be held on Sunday, May 13, 2018.

“I am absolutely delighted that Tim Cook will be returning to campus as this spring’s commencement speaker,” said Price. “Throughout his career, Tim has embodied Duke’s values of innovation and service to society, whether through his contributions to Apple’s groundbreaking technology or his advocacy for social justice. I can imagine no better person, and no bigger Duke fan, to inspire the Class of 2018.”

Thanks to the iPhone’s TrueDepth camera system on the iPhoneX, Animoji has become popular with karaoke videos in a short period of time. Animoji, which is quite fun to use in everyday life, has given also a pleasing news when it is used in an announcement.

We anticipate adding new features to the Animoji options with future iOS updates in the upcoming period.

How to test iPhone battery?

Apple has made a scandalous statement in recent days, saying that iPhone slows down because of battery health drops. Although they apologized to the users upon reactions, users want to be aware of the iPhone battery test.

iPhone battery test is easy!

It is quite easy for iPhone users to test the health of their batteries, and it is now possible to see the status of your battery in a very simple way thanks to the well-known application called Battery Life, developed by a developer named Victor Robinson. This application, which has a fairly simple interface, is available free of charge on the AppStore.

You can download the Battery Life application using this link and measure your iPhone battery health. The app is described as “Did you ever worry about your battery? Battery Life give you information to let our know more about your devices’ battery.” on AppStore.

It is already rated by 81 users and it got 3.5 points out of 5. One of the users also left a comment indicating, “Need to improve visuality. Other things work good. Can see design capacity. It’s done.” This comment is accompanied by a 5 stars.

Get a Discounted Battery From Apple

Since Apple’s confessed to slowing down old iPhones with degraded batteries, the company has gone on to offer a discount on replacement batteries, after classifying them as consumable components. It will also update iOS 11 itself to include more detailed information about your battery.

Instead of the usual $79 charge for replacing a battery out of warranty, you can get it replaced by Apple for $29 beginning in late January 2018. The company will release more details about the process “soon,” according to a press release.

If you’ve got a bad battery, you could always replace it at the Apple Store. You could also take it to a smartphone repair retailer, though you’ll be paying an estimated $69.99, which seems a bit steep compared to the alternative.

IOS update about slow iPhone is on the way!

Apple CEO Tim Cook came up with an explanation on iPhones that are slowing down. Cook said that with an iOS update, users would be able to enrich the iPhone’s performance.

Apple’s iPhones are slowing down and this issue is protecting the place on the agenda due to lawsuits and explanations. A feature that the company adds to iOS versions in order to prevent iPhone from closing down due to battery problems is slowing iPhone down.

There was general consensus among users that Apple slowed iPhone with every iOS update. This situation became clear with the admission from the company regarding the matter. Apple apologized to users and made serious discounts on battery replacement. However, users continue to react to this policy of the company.

People are getting angry at Apple

This reaction has turned into a mass action. Recently in South Korea, 370,000 people applied to the court for the slow iPhone. This has probably caused Apple to take more serious steps in the matter. Tim Cook, who has not commented on the subject so far, said they would come up with an iOS update that would prevent iPhones from slowing down in a statement to ABC News.

The update that Tim Cook mentions is about whether users’ iPhone performance will be lowered. The user will be able to use the device with full performance if they prefer. Cook said that iPhone owners would be able to get rid of the performance degradation they are bringing to prevent the iPhone from closing down one by one.

Cook indicated that the iPhone battery status of the update would also be shown. Apple has previously announced that the company will publish an iOS update to learn the iPhone battery health.

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were also included among the iPhones that slowed down depending on the battery condition with iOS 11.2. The update Tim Cook mentioned (probably iOS 11.3) will start testing from February. It will probably be released in March.
