Apple's New IPhone Update Will Sort Out Your Battery Woes

This Nasty Link Crashes Apple's Messages Apps

Beware! A new bug can crash iOS and macOS with a single text message

Cook said the iOS update will be rolled out to developers next month.

In an interview with ABC News, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that not only will iPhone owners be able to check the health of their batteries, but will also have the option to turn off the performance-slowing power management feature, should they want to.

"We're going to give people the visibility of the health of their battery, so it's very, very transparent". Thus, if the user's iOS device is no longer supported by iOS 10.2 jailbreak, then they might have wait for a new iOS 11.x jailbreak upgrade.

Recently you might have heard that there is a bug out there that affects Apple's iPhones, where if you receive a message with a particular link, it could cause your iPhone to crash. "We will tell somebody 'We're slightly reducing your performance by some amount in order to not have an unexpected restart.' And if you don't want it, you can turn it off".

Cook said the phone-slowing software, released previous year, was meant to make sure that iPhone users did not get cut off in the middle of an important call or text message because of an old battery.

USA withholds $65 million from United Nations aid for Palestine
The visit of Palestinian president Abbas next Monday in Brussels is a first opportunity to exchange thoughts in this regard. UNRWA provides services to 5.3 million Palestinian refugees in the Palestinian territories, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria.

The rest of the interview focused on Apple's repatriation of foreign revenue, which Cook claims will bring $US38 ($48) billion back to the USA and is part of the company's plans to spend $US350 ($439) billion in the United States over the next five years.

The practice makes sense to maintain the iPhone's reliability, but it's controversial because people didn't know about it and were likely to buy a new iPhone instead of replacing their older iPhone's battery for much less.

According to latest tech news, Apple presently signs iOS 11 and newer only. "And so we deeply apologize for anybody that thinks we had some other kind of motivation".

On Thursday, just two days after the malicious was initially disseminated on Twitter, Apple told BuzzFeed that a fix is coming in a software update next week. Apple has since apologised and announced it would be dropping the price of replacement iPhone batteries from US$79 (NZ$108) to US$29 throughout 2018.
