How to check iPhone processor speed?

How affected are Apple’s deliberately slowing iPhone models? iPhone processor speed can be easily controlled. The repercussions of explaining that Apple is slowing iPhones that are in bad condition are still continuing. In the past days, the company started apologizing for this situation with a discounted battery exchange program. But users do not seem to even satisfy this application.

To check processor speed

After Apple’s announcement, many users learned the battery health of their phones through various applications and Apple Support. How bad is your iPhone’s CPU speed if your battery is bad? You can easily find the answer to this question with an App Store app.

With Lirum Device Info Lite, iPhone processor speed can be learned. It is described as:

Lirum Device Info Lite is the most complete and elegant application to retrieve specifications of your device. You will be able to monitor its performance, watch real time CPU usage graphs, and discover a lot more about your iDevice.
It’s a system monitor and diagnostic tool for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

You can find out if your iPhone’s processor is slowing down by following these steps.

Step 1: Download Lirum Device Info Lite from the App Store. You can use this link to download Lirum Device Info Lite which is free.

Step 2: Start the app and touch the Options button when you click the Options button in the top left corner of the screen.

Step 3: Touch the CPU.

This metric must have the same or very close values. If your phone is too hot or in low power mode, the clock speed may be low. Under normal conditions, the phone should be equal to the original processor speed.

As you can see, there is no loss in processor speed (1.4 GHz) of our 3.5 year old iPhone 6 device with battery health of 88%. If the numbers on your phone are different, then it is time to change the battery.

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.

iphone-battery test

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.

Eyebrows In Action For Rainbow Game Of iPhone X

Do you like playing games that are full of fun? If you own an iPhone X smartphone, you can have fun with Rainbow, which you can play using your eyebrows. The simple game developed by Nathan Gitter, a graduate of the Washington University computer science department, benefits from the blessings of the TrueDepth Camera system, as you would guess.

The mobile game Rainbow you can play with your eyebrows!

In the game you have to use your eyebrows to move up and down an emoji face to gather stars. Pretty simple. In the meantime, you have to overcome other emoji obstacles that will come out like cars, basketballs and ducks. Too much fun.

There is no level in the play, so as you progress, the obstacles increase and the game starts to get harder. Your goal is to get the highest possible score. Let’s just say that you are your only rival for now. On the other hand, the game is planned to have Game Center integration later and to provide multi-player competition.

The game tracking the face of the user in real time follows the location, topology and expression. The privacy policy underlines that the collected data will only be used for gaming purposes and will be hosted locally on the device. In addition, the data will only be used in the game session.

You can click here to download the completely free Rainbow for iOS game from the App Store.

What is TrueDepth tech?

TrueDepth technology is the part making Face ID with facial recogniyion possible in iPhone. TrueDepth also enables Apple’s new Animojis and other special effects that require a 3D model of the user’s face and head.

TrueDepth starts with a traditional 7MP front-facing “selfie” camera. It adds an infrared emitter that projects over 30,000 dots in a known pattern onto the user’s face. Those dots are then photographed by a dedicated infrared camera for analysis. There is a proximity sensor, presumably so that the system knows when a user is close enough to activate. An ambient light sensor helps the system set output light levels.

Siri Is Getting Ready For Next Generation Of Intelligent Devices

Siri was the smartest intelligent assistant for years, but then Amazon, Microsoft and Google have got stronger in the game. Not surprisingly, Apple have taken the action to secure its leading position.

The brand’s effort to improve intelligent life-supporter is an important sign of Apple’s vision for future. So, what is happening nowadays with Siri? There came out a startup to make businesses life easier with unorganized and unstructured database. $200 million is the budget for the startup that will be helpful to deal with paragraphs of text and databases that are structured far from being neat.

20 engineers are co-working for the project targeting to make Siri ready for future technology, or even to lead it. This deal proves Apple’s proactive character, which is the main power making Apple Apple both in the past and in today’s extremely digital world. So, the project is foreshadowing the brand’s perseverance in leadership.

How does the system works?

Siri have the knowledge on many areas to share them with the user. That means, the artificial intelligence uses a knowledge graph to ‘understand’ complex situations. Even now, Siri can understand detailed requests such as “Find TV shows for kids” with a detail of “only comedies.”

Siri

This smart device keeps learning as you talked to it and with this improvement by Apple’s engineers the information kept in algorithms of the device will reach a huge number. It will respond even your unstructured questions, which is really hard to do in today’s technology although we think that technology has already been super improved. There is long way to go for the engineers in this sector.

On the other hand Dr. Dan Klein, chief scientist at Semantic Machines thinks that under these conditions, we can never be sure of how correct the answer is. He says; “You can do a better job of extracting unstructured data if you track confidence all the way through.”
