If you’re thinking of getting a new iPhone, here’s another way of owning the device with the option of changing phones every year. Maxis has finally extended its Zerolution program to cover the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. With zero interest and zero upfront fees, you can own the latest Apple smartphone from RM100/month across a 24 months duration.
Form and function. These are synonymous with Apple. People may disagree with a lot of things but many will agree that when it comes to making something as ubiquitous as a smartphone look like a work of art, Apple does it best.
But sometimes, even the best get it wrong.
This is the Apple Smart Battery Case. It’s the company’s first ever battery pack and it’s decidedly un-Apple. More on that later but first, let’s go into the specs.

Today is a busy software update day if you’re using an iPhone, iPad or an Apple Watch. Apple has just started pushing its iOS 9.2 update for its iDevices while the Apple Watch is getting a newer watchOS 2.1 update.
For iOS devices, the latest release focuses on Apple Music and some minor improvements on its native apps. There are a couple of bug fixes as well that fixes stability issues with Safari, Contacts, Calendar and its native keyboard. If you’re using the iPhone 6s/6s Plus, iBooks now supports 3D Touch and you can perform the usual peek and pop from the table of contents.
iOS 9.2 is available now in Malaysia and you can download it under Settings > General > Software Updates. It weighs 272MB so it is best that you’ll find an unmetered WiFi for this.
Cross platform pairing is usually a non-issue, at least when you’re on the same operating system. Unique to Samsung, Tizen OS wearables were never able to interact with other devices outside the Samsung name. Luckily Korea’s finest have smartened up this time and the Gear S2 has the ability to communicate with other Android smartphones. They left iOS out, at least until September, when they suggested that they might consider opening it up.

The name Ming Chi Kuo is often affiliated with spot-on foresights of how the Cupertino-based company will set plans well into the future. Building a long list of prophetic calls over his time at KGI Securities, he is a force to be reckoned with – the Nostradamus of Apple, minus the ambiguity. Apparently, when concerning the likeliness of iPhones carrying AMOLED screens, he’s calling it a bluff, at least until 2019 comes around.
As it is, the Chinese smartphone maker has one thing in common with iOS; lacking an app drawing as one example. Maybe that was why the company has just hired a former Apple director. A steady rise of the hardware quality has already begun, crafting devices like the Ascend Mate 7, the P8 and of late the Mate S and co-creation of the Nexus 6P. This news naturally means that EMUI should get some much needed refinement and rid themselves of gimmicky features like Knuckle Sense.
Apple first started letting users experience Quick Reply on iOS 8 but only on their own Messages app. The feature allowed you to pull down on a notification and reply immediately without opening the app itself. Now since iOS 9 has come into play, Apple enabled other apps to access this feature – Skype and Facebook Messenger were given the go-ahead much earlier.
In a nutshell, lawsuits between tech giants are not uncommon and Apple isn’t a first-timer in the ring. They’ve butt heads with Samsung before, in a long-drawn-out battle of ping pong, each taking turns to sue each other. When the first leaks of the HTC One A9 came around, we too thought it was an iPhone clone but lets take a look closer at how Apple “innovates”; methods that haven’t settled well with their Taiwanese counterparts, causing one of HTC’s regional chiefs to share his two cents on the subject.

If you’ve gotten an iPhone 6s, one of the newest feature is Live Photos. It basically takes a moving picture which include seconds before and after a shot is being taken. Problem is, most of the time it capture moments of you lowering your iPhone which is natural for anyone to do when taking a normal picture.
This minor annoyance has been fixed with the new iOS 9.1 which is rolling out now to current iOS 9 devices. From the changelog, the updated Live Photos should intelligently detect when the iPhone is being lifted or lowered, so it knows when to start/stop recording at the right time. It also brings a fresh batch of 150 Emojis for all your social and messaging needs.
