Following the release of iOS 10.3 earlier this week, a number of users reported that their iOS devices were repeatedly attempting to call 911.
It appears that Apple has worked with app developers to examine the issue and close the loophole.
The new 9.7-inch iPad is built on a pretty familiar framework.
Last week, Apple unveiled its 9.7-inch iPad. According to the teardown performed by the coolest of felines at iFixit, the new iPad is essentially a spruced-up version of the original iPad Air released in 2013. They share the same battery and the same display. There are some minor tweaks, too, including the integration of the third-generation A9 chip and Touch ID capabilities.
The new model is a minor upgrade, but arrives at a nice price point wherein the 32GB model is $329, compared to the previous entry-level iPad Air 2 that went for $399.
As nifty as tvOS 10.2 is (the new fast scrolling feature, for example, is much appreciated), it might be causing problems with some third-party streaming applications.
A new report has stated that tvOS 10.2 including functionality that makes the Apple TV require device verification from an AirPlay streaming device. In such a case, only Apple hardware can provide such verification.
The new verification requirement can cause certain third-party streaming applications not to work. Per Rogue Amoeba’s Paul Kafasis, the tvOS 10.2 update prevents the company’s AirFoil app for Mac and Windows from working with the Apple TV. Rogue Amoeba recommends not updating to tvOS 2 until the company has a fix for AirFoil.
Apple cleaned house via a slew of operating system updates on Monday, pinning down nearly 350 known vulnerabilities between its changes to iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS.
Starting with iOS 10.3, Apple’s latest version includes Find My AirPods, Apple’s new file system, CarPlay, and a few other small visual tweaks. With nearly every update Apple does, they also include a handful of security fixes that easily go unnoticed by the user. iOS 10.3 is no exception with over 85 different common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs) listed.
In one case, the iOS 10.3 update patched a security hole that allowed attackers to spam Safari with a ‘Cannot Open Page’ dialog. Lookout, a cybersecurity company, learned of the attack after one of their users complained of losing control over their browsing experience. The dialog was meant to trick users into eventually paying money to “unlock” their Safari browser.
In an informal – but funny – showdown between Apple’s CarPlay and Android Auto, the mighty Yuri and Jakub hopped into a car and tested both systems out in terms of voice recognition, finding directions and making quick calls from your car.
The results speak for themselves, especially when Siri comes into play.
‘Tis a day of updates and watchOS and tvOS are no exception.
Apple on Monday, released watchOS 3.2, which will require that you update your iPhone to iOS 10.3 and your Apple Watch have at least a 50 percent battery charge and be within range of your iPhone before beginning the installation.
watchOS 3.2 offers the following fixes and changes:
The new iPad and (PRODUCT)Red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus you want is now available for order online.
Apple has added the products to its online store in the United States and dozens of other countries and regions around the world. (PRODUCT)RED iPhones are also available for in-store pickup at select Apple Stores as of Friday.
The 9.7-inch iPad features a faster A9 processor and a brighter Retina display compared to the iPad Air 2, which has now been discontinued. The tablet is a bit thicker and heavier than the iPad Air 2 given that it lacks a fully laminated display with anti-reflective coating in order to keep costs down.
The tablet also features a display resolution of 2,048‑by‑1,536 at 264 PPI, an 8-megapixel rear iSight camera, 1.2-megapixel front FaceTime camera, two speakers, Lightning connector, 3.5mm headphone jack, Touch ID with Apple Pay, and Bluetooth 4.2.
