Apple is now deploying iOS 10.3 -- the latest update to its iOS mobile operating system -- to iPhone and iPad tablet devices. As expected, this new roll out will come with a number of enhancements. Interestingly, the tech giant has decided to utilize the iOS 10.3 update as a means for swapping the iPhone’s and iPad’s underlying file system from the previous HFS+ file format to the new Apple File System. In other words, the company is basically upgrading how its devices are saving and managing data.
Apple has rolled out the first public beta of its latest update to iOS 10 (the final one before iOS 11 is released). Despite some rumored features not making the cut, like the Theater mode (which lets users dull the colors of the display screen to allow for easier viewing in low light conditions, there are some notable features of the newest update that owners of iPhone, iPad, and iPod devices should watch out.
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.
With the roll out of iOS 10.1, Apple has brought the Portrait mode to owners of the iPhone 7 Plus. The Portrait mode was actually already made available in beta, allowing a limited number of iPhone 7 Plus users to take images with a bokeh effect (blurred background). But with the latest update from Apple, this particular feature can now be experienced by every iPhone 7 Plus owner.
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.
When Apple gave a preview of the latest iOS 10 update at WWDC, it highlighted the new features that they were adding onto iOS 10. Particularly, they were working on improving the lock screen to make it more functional for use on widgets and notifications.
Baseball fans will be pleased with the newly updated MLB at Bat app. The iOS app has recently been updated to promote accessing the app from a locked screen. This is greatly in thanks to iOS 10's new Advanced Notifications alert technology that gives users access to live content and media attachments by allowing 3D Touch on Notifications.
Recently this week, a fresh beta version of iOS 10, the newest iteration of Apple’s iOS mobile operating system, was rolled out to developers, and it comes with a Portraits feature, which is designed to help users capture better portrait shots, according to a report published by MacRumors. Some may remember that when the tech giant officially unveiled its new iPhone 7 models around a couple of weeks ago, it also talked about Portraits, and now, the functionality is being tested.
T-Mobile has issued a statement advising its customers, especially those who own iPhone devices, to wait just a little bit before updating to iOS 10, the latest version of Apple’s iOS mobile operating system. The statement was actually a tweet by John Legere himself, the chief executive officer of the major US wireless carrier. The advisory was specifically targeted to mobile users who currently have an iPhone 6, an iPhone 6 Plus, or an iPhone SE unit.
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.
Apple is officially starting its deployment of the finished version of its iOS mobile operating system, iOS 10. The roll out is being done by way of over the air updates in the Settings app, and through a wired update wherein mobile users can just plug their iPhone and iPad devices into iTunes and download the newest iteration of iOS. Apple also took the opportunity to formally release watchOS 3, the latest version of its operating system for wearable devices.
