Here is some good news for owners of iPhone 8 devices that have experienced unresponsive display issues with their third party screens -- Apple has just rolled out a new iOS 11.3.1 update, which comes with a fix for the display glitches plaguing a number of units that have recently installed iOS 11.3.
It appears to be so, at least according to new information presented through a report recently released by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP). In completing its latest survey, what the research group did was ask 500 iOS mobile users based in the United States, particularly those who have purchased an iPhone, an iPad, or a Mac in 2018 (specifically in the period between January 1st until March 31st).
There have been a lot of rumors brewing in the last few days with regards to upcoming iPhone models, so we better get to it. There is talk that the iPhone SE 2 will be fitted with a glass rear cover, which should allow the device’s battery to be wireless charged using a charging pad. Known leaker Ben Geskin has actually posted a render via his Twitter account. Geskin has also stated that the iPhone SE 2, which is hiding behind the code name Jaguar, is now currently in mass production, and it is quite possible that fans of the small iPhone will not have long to wait before the new model gets released.
According to a recent report published by French website Consomac just this week, it appears that Apple has registered a number of unreleased iPhone model numbers with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), which is basically the regulatory body of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU).
Industry watchers Steven Milunovich and Benjamin Wilson from UBS fully expect that Apple’s next flagship device, specifically the follow up to last year’s iPhone X, will come with a price of $1,100 when it gets released later this year. With that pricing, the new iPhone model would basically cost a hundred bucks more than the already expensive $1,000 iPhone X.
It was nearly a couple of weeks ago when Apple had first began rolling outiOS 11.3, which is the newest iteration of its iOS mobile operating system. That deployment brought the usual bug fixes, as well as some cool enhancements, such as upgrades to ARKit (Apple’s augmented reality platform), battery related features, and a new message that notifies users whenever iOS 11 wants to gain access to private information.
Apple is formally unveiling the (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition versions of two of its flagship device offerings last year, specifically the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus. These variants will be officially released this coming April 13th, although in some countries and mobile markets, customers can start ordering online as early as April 10th.
It seems so, at least according to a report recently published by Bloomberg just this week. The talk is that Apple is apparently already starting to toy with the idea of developing a new iPhone model that can interact with the mobile user through the use of touchless gesture controls. In addition to this, the next generation iPhone offering is said to sport a curved screen.
Amidst some recent excitement brewing over this year’s rumored upcoming new generation Apple Watch model, not many people may realize that a number of well known mobile apps have been disappearing from watchOS (Apple’s operating system for wearable devices) during the last few months.
And just this week, one of the most high profile social media apps out there, Instagram, has joined the club, albeit quietly. Indeed, when updating to version 39.0 on iPhone, Apple users may notice that the Instagram app for the Apple Watch is now nowhere to be found when paired with the iPhone.
It was only a few weeks ago when invites to the mobile version of Fortnite were first sent out. But this week now sees the highly anticipated free to play title (which also comes with the Battle Royale game mode) being made available to all owners of Apple devices, as long as their handset is supported.
For those not familiar with the Fortnite game, basically its set up involves having a hundred players parachute on an island where they have to find all kinds of weapons and essentially fight to the death until one victor emerges (hence, the Battle Royale reference).
