Apple will soon let you turn off its iPhone-slowing software

The tweak will arrive in an upcoming iOS update as early as this spring.

Apple has been slowing down your older iPhone, but you'll soon be able to do something about it.


Following an uproar from customers, Apple said Wednesday it's adding a feature to an upcoming iOS update that will let them turn off software that slows down older iPhones.
Apple in December revealed that it released software about a year earlier that makes older iPhones run more slowly to prevent problems with aging lithium ion batteries, such as unexpected shutdowns.
As part of the upcoming iOS 11.3, iPhone users will get a recommendation if a battery needs to be serviced. Plus, they will be able to see whether the power management feature that slows a phone's performance is on and can then choose to turn it off, the company said.
CEO Tim Cook last week mentioned that the new features were in the works, telling ABC News that an iPhone update will let people disable the software that slows down its phones.
Although iOS 11.3 is set to arrive in the spring, Apple said the new battery features will arrive in a later iOS 11.3 beta release. 
The planned features may help smooth over some customers' anger about slowdowns and show that Apple is trying to be more transparent about performance changes it makes to older iPhones.
The new feature will be found in the Battery section in Settings and will be available for iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
In response to customer complaints about the slowed iPhones, Apple has cut the price for replacing an iPhone battery from $79 to $29. The battery update will be part of a broader iOS update, which includes augmented reality updates and new health records for iPhones.

Brain and Multitasking

Brain and Multitasking Hey guys in this article we'll talk about Brain and Multitasking....
When you try to do two things at once, you can't or won't do either well. If you think multitasking is an effective way to get more done, you've got it backward. It's an effective way to get less done.

Right now, you might be reading this article while clicking around the internet, watching the news on TV or brushing your teeth. You're trying to save time by doing multiple things at once. But multitasking is lie.
It's a lie because nearly everyone accepts it as an effective thing to do. It's become so mainstream that people actually think it's something they should do, and do as often as possible.
We not only hear talk about doing it, we even hear talk about getting better at it. More than six million web pages offer answer on how to do it, and career websites list "multitasking" as a skill for employees to target for prospective hires to list as a…

Learn about Machine LearningToday we’ll learn about machine learning. How does this machine as we learn? So in this article we talk about machine learning. Maybe sometime you know about machine learning or maybe not. If you don’t  know about this, this article for you.

Mainly and simply this machine learn as human. Human brain made up with Neural Network. So this neural network gets data from our sensory organs and learns through them. Human brain also can make decisions with these data. In fact, the human brain is considered the most complex machine currently in the world. Also AI has this ability for doing machine learning, just like the brain. AI has big Neural Network, and it can learn faster than brain.
So how can we explain this "machine learning"? We already have a web tool for this. You can visit this site through this link. Teachable Machine: https://teachablemachine.withgoogle.comFor this experiment we need desktop or laptop computer, and web camera. Also you can use…
