Although OnePlus has gone and fixed that annoying glitch that rebooted OnePlus 5 units whenever users dialed an emergency number, many are still no doubt wondering what exactly caused the glitch in the first place. Well, the Chinese phone maker has recently released an official explanation, and it might be kind of awkward.
A trio of characters contained in a simple text message -- that is all it takes to deactivate (thankfully temporarily) an iPhone unit. This was revealed as much by an online hacker recently (via the YouTube channel EverythingApplePro). So which characters exactly will cause pandemonium on Apple’s smartphones? They include a white flag emoji, a “0” and a rainbow emoji.
Earlier today, Apple released an update for iOS to address the huge number of complaints they received from Verizon Wireless customers. These customers earlier expressed frustration over encountering signal drops and baffling GPS issues with their iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus devices.
Apparently for some. Apple has just started the deployment of the final version of its iOS 10 mobile operating system, but there are reports surfacing that users are encountering issues when downloading the newest iOS software update. What happened was that once users go through the whole download and install process over Wi-Fi, their iPhone device displayed an error message, which also instructed the users to plug their handset into iTunes on their computer.
According to a report published by MacRumors, iOS 9.3.2, the latest updated version of Apple’s iOS mobile operating system, now comes with support for concurrent use of Night Shift and Low Power Mode features. Strictly speaking, such support is not listed anywhere in the official update notes. It also bears noting that beta versions of iOS 9.3 had let testers use both features at the same time, although in later versions, such capability was eventually taken out.
As reported by Reuters, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has announced that it now taking a closer look at wireless carriers’ use of a rather old telecommunications tech which has been proven to be riddled with security flaws, especially after a report by CBS’ 60 Minutes indicated that this tech can be remotely utilized by third parties to sneakily eavesdrop on mobile users.
Whoops, a new bug is pestering iOS mobile users yet again, and it is on Apple’s newest smartphone offering, the iPhone SE. When Apple rolled out the latest update to its iOS 9.3.1 mobile operating system about a couple of weeks ago, it was intended to provide a fix for a bug that caused the Safari Internet browser, as well as Mail and other mobile apps, to crash or become unresponsive when users try to tap on a web link.
Here is some good news for iOS mobile users -- Apple now has a fix for that Siri bug found on iOS 9. As reported by various sources earlier this week, this particular bug makes full use of Apple’s digital assistant, Siri, in starting a Twitter search session in order to look for email address information.
And the bugs keep coming. Yet another issue has surfaced in iOS 9, the latest version of Apple’s iOS mobile operating system. This time around, this particular bug makes full use of Siri, iOS’ digital assistant, as well as the pressure sensitive 3D Touch feature in order to allow unauthorized access to saved photos and contacts list on Apple’s current flagship devices, the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus.
