Google Project Zero, a security team just discovered a message bug which can make you to factory reset. Since the security team highlighted the problem, Apple released a fix for the bug in the form of an iOS update. According to Apple insider, the bug has a special type of malformed message that could have been sent to anyone's iPhone. A malformed text message is actually a message that doesn't have the right amount of coding. This makes the message load, crash, and reload until your phone breaks. The phone then go blank and become bricked, which means it won't turn on and it is almost impossible to fix it so it is more like a brick now. Once your phone get bricked, it is hard to get it back to the functional state.


Apple released the security patch to fix this message bug with the iPhone 12.3 update on this May and if you haven't updated your device you yet, you are still at the risk. It is always a better idea to update your iOS as soon as the update is available. The regular update is the only safe way out for these kind of incidents.


Here is how you can update your iPhone


Plug your iPhone into a power socket for battery backup and connect to your Wi-Fi network. Go to Settings > General > Software update. Tap Download and Install. Tap install to update immediately, or tap later and choose install tonight to update while your phone is still connect to the power. You may have to enter your security code during the update.
The alternate way is to install the latest version of iTunes on your computer. Then connect your iPhone to your computer using the USB cable. Open iTunes and select your device. Click summary and then click ‘check for update'. Click download and update. Enter your security code when asked. You can also read about the story of a fake smartphone app which tricked users to download the security updates from an authenticate source.


apple ios13

 

Apple unveiled the latest update tot its iOS operating system, iOS 13 at WWDC event in San Jose. Most interesting change for iOS 13 is the addition of a new dedicated dark mode that switches the system UI to darker color scheme. Dark mode isn't a new thing and we have already seen it by other mobile vendors. What's different is its schedule feature which automatically changes the mode based on the time of the day. Wallpapers have been optimized to feature variants for both light and dark mode themes. Dark mode is battery friendly and also easy to on eyes.


The new photo app lets users to edit pictures without any other software. New controls include vibrance, white balancing, sharpening, clarity defination, noise reduction, and vignette filters right from the photo app. It can also do the video editing at the advance level, something which used to require special dedicated software before this. The album app has also updated massively and has sorting functionality which allows users to find images from the gallery easily. Apple made a big emahasis on new privacy and security features. The iOS13 is now ‘sign in with apple' instead of your traditional email account. There are other small improvements such as you can share images without giving out your location based on your preferences.


Apple has also revamped the mapping data for its own map app. Using new technology, new map delivers significant details. Apple also introduces its own version of Google street view but Apple's implementation seems a lot more seamless and effective than what Google has achieved. Devices with A9 chips now support generation of your own Memoji stickers. iOS 13 also support external files on USB drives, SD cards or even hard drives. The new OS now supports showcasing of full file metadata, zipping, and unzipping files.

 

 


iphone-2019-three-camera


Well-known tech designer Ben Geskin has put together all the reliable rumors and some leaked information to create the outer casings of the upcoming iPhones, and it... looks interesting! Check the photos first before reading further.


The entire tech world is abuzz with how ugly the tri-camera bump will look, if Apple does indeed decide to take that route, and I am personally bothered by it too, albeit for slightly different reasons.


You see, the very first time I looked at the three sensors, it aroused a sense of true aversion in me and that doesn't just happen. I am not the kind of person to be disgusted by a large notch, even though I don't care for it. However, the tri-lens setup actually made me feel weird because it inspires the trypophobia in me. In fact, most people who are calling it ugly, probably do not know it, but it is very likely that they hate it for the same reason too.


Then again, the three lenses will almost certainly be a providing a huge bump (no puns intended!) to the upcoming iPhone's camera performance and it certainly needs that! So, what do you think? Will you accept the three-eyed design if it means massive camera improvements?

Can you live without your iPhone for 7 days? It may look weird to you, but the internet service provider frontier communications have actually offered this deal. It is open for anyone with iPhone. The company will choose one person among the applicants who are willing to giving up their iPhone to use an old-fashioned flip phone instead of using their iPhone for seven full days. If this person could continue to use it for the duration mention, he or she will be rewarded with $1000.


The company is also providing the candidate with a survival kit which includes a physical map to be used instead of Apple Maps, a physical phonebook to write down the number and contact information for the contacts, a pen and notebook, and a CD with 90's era music. To prove the success the person has to document every detail of whole experience. This may sound more like a task rather than a contest, as it lists the candidates' responsibilities and mention the prize money as compensation. This also includes the tracking your time to complete each task such as texting and checking email. The company is also interested to learn how many hours you slept during that one week, how productivity changed, and how many times you wished to Google something but couldn't.


The contest's rules didn't say that you cannot use your laptops or tablets, which could render the whole experiment useless. It seems like a marketing attempt by the company. - as they are looking for someone with active social presence, which would also affect the brand awareness for the company. Contest is calling it as ‘its concerns over tech addiction', prompting tech firms to help us manage the amount of time we spend on our smartphones. Apple launched its screen time feature last time, which allows iPhone users to see their total time being spent on their phones.
