Michael Krewson posted a topic in iOSThis morning I got strange dialog box on my iPhone 6 Plus. It said: "Passcode Requirement: You must change your iPhone unlock passcode within 34 minutes." The combination of the ambiguity of the message and the countdown timer was alarming. Why did I need to change my passcode? Why did I have to do so within a few short minutes? I hit "Later" twice over the next 34 minutes and nothing happened. Evidently it is just a bug related to cookies on a website I have previously visited and it is not malware. Apple couldn't tell me more.
Nicole posted a topic in AppleAt today’s live Apple event, the fruit unveiled the iPhone 7, Apple Watch Series 2, and the Apple Watch Nike+. The watch — which comes in two sizes, 38 mm ($369) and 42mm ($399) —features built-in GPS tracking, a perforated sport band for ventilation, Nike+ Run Club app integration, and exclusive Siri commands for starting a run. Plus, push(y) notifications: The Nike+ Run Club app offers daily motivation through smart run reminders, challenges from friends and even alerts informing when the weather is right to get outside. Training data, including pace, distance and heart rate are available at a glance, and through shared run summaries, the app promotes friendly competition, even allowing users to send fist bumps to each other right from the wrist. One prompt in particular asks, “Are we running today?” No, Apple Watch,WE are not running. I am running; you are merely along for the ride, capturing all of my personal data, which you will use to expertly nag me at a later date. http://nymag.com/thecut/2016/09/nike-apple-watch-apple-live-event-2016.html
TheWorldNewsOrg posted a topic in iPhonePoor battery life is one of the top complaints among mobile phone owners, especially as they run power-hungry apps that can chew up a battery charge before the day is half over. There have been long-running debates over whether closing a background app helps preserve battery charge. Federighi's succinct response echoes a similar piece of advice on an Apple support page that explains how to close an app. The page says that closing an app isn't necessary unless it's frozen: Another support document clarifies the process in greater detail: Mobile phone users constantly search for tips and tricks to preserve battery life on their phones. iPhone owners can extend the charge to some degree by tweaking certain settings and apps. But unless you turn on Background App Refresh, an option introduced in iOS 7, Apple says you're just wasting your time shutting down background apps in hopes of extending your battery charge.
