You can turn off Apple’s intentional slowdown on older iPhones with a new iOS update

Posted:  January 18, 2018   By:    11 comments   

A couple of weeks ago, Apple had admitted that they were intentionally slowing down older iPhones with a bad battery. That had created a furore as it was perceived by some as a way to get existing users to upgrade to their latest iPhone.

According to Apple, the move was necessary to prevent sudden iPhone shutdowns and to squeeze as much battery life from a faulty battery. Those affected can regain their full performance by swapping their iPhone battery for a new one. As a gesture of goodwill, Apple has offered discounted battery replacements for the iPhone 6 and above.

Samsung rewards you for talking to your phone

Posted:  January 17, 2018   By:    1 comment   

Bixby is Samsung’s very own virtual assistant which was introduced together with the Galaxy S8/S8+ and it’s also available on the Galaxy Note8. Not only you can command your phone using your voice, you can use it to set customised actions such as running multiple apps or tasks at a single command.

It also gets smarter the more you use it. If it doesn’t get it right the first time, you can teach it so that it will know how to respond the next time you issue the same command.

To encourage more people to use Bixby, Samsung is running a Bixby Level Up campaign where you can get rewarded with Samsung Reward points.

ookyo now offers unlimited YouTube pass for 30 days

Posted:  January 17, 2018   By:    2 comments   

ookyo, the digital telco service under Maxis, offers unlimited internet for a collection of apps at RM30/month. This is great for those who primarily use their mobile data for social and music apps. However, for those who stream lots of YouTube videos might find it unappealing as watching YouTube on ookyo will utilise its normal 4GB of high-speed data quota and they only offered unlimited passes for very short durations.

If that’s holding you back, ookyo has introduced a new YouTube unlimited pass that’s valid for 30 days. On top of that, they have also revised the pricing for some of its unlimited apps and data add-on for greater value.
