New iPhone Users in for a Surprise

According to the tech site Macotakara, the next generation iPhone will make fast charging incompatible with third party chargers. Apple has added support for ‘C-AUTH’ to its new iPhones’ charging specification; C-AUTH stands for ‘USB Type-C Authentication.’ This means Apple will include a new security check feature that stops fast charging from any third party chargers and cables, unless they have been licensed by Apple.

Apple is not the first to use this feature; it is a safe way to stop dangerous third party cables from damaging your phone, which may result in needing to replace your iPhone in the long run. However, Apple took things a little further by modifying  the current C-AUTH standard. Currently, C-AUTH restricts fast chargers of 18 watts or more down to 5 watts to performance. With its new models, Apple will use C-AUTH to drop all third-party chargers to 2.5W.

Although this may seem like unwelcoming downside for the new iPhone models to come this year, Apple will be pairing their fast chargers with their phones. However, if you ever need an additional fast charger for your phone, you may be looking at $68-84 per charger.

Buzz About New IPad Pro Models Coming Out This Year

https://www.iphoned.nl/nieuws/ios-12-ipad-pro-face-id/

Apple is releasing new models for the iPad pro. Although the release date is not official, Apple is telling everyone to stay tuned!

Apple has been very busy in 2018 due to their launch of a new education-focused iPad and new Macbook Pro that includes Touchbar models. Apple has plenty more products in store for the future, however, Apple users may have to wait for the production process to keep progressing in order to give us all the answers. Adding onto the latest version of the iPhones coming out in the Fall, Apple will have variations including a pair of new iPad Pros that will launch with new features and upgrades.

Physical Features And Upgrades To Design

The iPad has had a very consistent look to it and that will continue to be the case. Apple will keep the 10.5-inch iPad Pro. The company, however, expects to grant the iPad Pro an iPhone X-like look which will include some new aspects to its design. Apple also says that they will reduce bezel sizes on both the 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro variants. However, this will mean different things for the different variations of these models.

According to Ming Chi Kuo, Apple will still have the 10.5-inch iPad Pro and remain the same physical size, but include a screen that is extended in nature. This will mean that consumers will receive an  added screen real estate in the same form factor. According to Kuo, this 10.5-inch model will eventually progress to becoming an 11-inch model due to the reduced bezel sizes.

Moreover, Kuo says that the amount of bezel sizes will reduce in regards to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro but will not increase the display size. The 12.9-inch display will then remain the same way, however, the overall footprint of the device will decrease. This will make it not only more portable, but also very easy to manage.

https://www.gsmarena.com/apple_ios_10_may_finally_allow_the_long_awaited_dark_mode-blog-18873.php

 

Apple’s release of iOS 11 has been nothing less than successful. With the release of their new update, Apple has also launched several apps that compliment the new update’s feature. Ever since the release of these apps, there has been an influx in Apple’s app downloads. The soar in app downloads is according to app analytics firm Sensor Tower. Since Apple has created ways to feature apps, more and more Apple users are downloading them.

Apple’s “daily stories,” is in reference to a single app, which includes its daily games and apps.  These apps include becoming a better cook and entertaining kids. By having apps that reach multiple audiences, Apple has increased its amount of downloads.

In more recent news, Apple’s App Store editors made  a daily list called “Does this App Come in Black?”, which highlights the 16 iOS apps which offer a “pure black mode.” This “pure black mode” helps create darker features for the iPhone.

Darker themes are known as being easier to look at. Instead of staring at a bright white background, the darker features are easier on the eyes. This is especially helpful at night or when you are looking at your iPhone in dimmed lighting.

Apple also includes a pure-black mode that serves as an excellent way to take advantage of the gorgeous OLED screen on the iPhone X. This screen has the ability to display far greater contrast than the LCD displays on previous iPhones. The colors appear as being more vibrant, whereas blacks and dark colors appear as being much deeper. If you own the new and latest update for the iPhone, you should try these darker features. They are becoming more and more popular worldwide so make sure you get in on in the action ! For more information on this topic, click here.

Apple launches a collaboration between its 10 Apple Developer Academies in Brazil and Malala Fund to help progress girls’ education opportunities. The Malala Fund in Latin America is working to provide safe, quality secondary education and opportunities for girls. It will also offer grants to local advocates in Brazil. The advocates at Apple will join Malala Fund’s network of Gulmakai champions and implement projects all over the country. These projects  will feature a design to empower girls, inspire teachers and policymakers to develop their skills through programs, and positively affect school enrollment efforts and advocacy for education.

Malala Fund’s Network

Malala Fund’s network will be challenging the creativity and innovative minds of Apple Developer Academy students and Brazilian alumni. It will also give them the chance to collaborate with Malala Fund to develop and design apps that enhance the education opportunities for girls. This challenge will motivate the students to find ways to better enable Malala Fund’s network of Gulmakai champions around the world.  It will also help Malala to communicate and share best practices in a secure environment.

The Apple Developer Academy’s developers in Rio met Malala Yousafzai on Friday. They spoke with her when she was there to visit the students. She was there to discuss how important the developers are to the fund’s mission to provide education opportunities to girls all over the world.

Apple became Malala Fund’s first Laurete partner in January. Apple did this by enabling the Malala Fund to increase the amount of grants awarded by its Gulmakai Network. They will also fund new programs in India and Latin America. This is with the goal in mind of enhancing the opportunities for secondary education for over 100,000 girls.

Dating back to 2013, more than 3,000 students have gone through this experience at Brazil’s Apple Developer Academy program.  Moreover, there are 500 other students that are currently enrolled in 10 sites. The sites are all across Brasilia, Campinas, Curitiba, Fortaleza, Manaus, Porto Alegre, Recife, Rio de Janeiro, and Sao Paulo. The scholarship winners include the seventy-five Brazilian students who were present at the Worldwide Developer Conference. For more information on Apple’s support of Malala’s fund, click here.
