Apple investigated by France for ‘planned obsolescence’

iphone (1)

Under French law it is a crime to intentionally shorten lifespan of a product with the aim of making customers replace it. In December, Apple admitted that older iPhone models were deliberately slowed down through software updates. But it insisted it was because the phones' battery performance diminished over time. The French investigation is being led by the economy ministry's consumer protection agency. It follows a legal complaint filed in December by pro-consumer group Stop Planned Obsolescence (Hop). Hop said France was the third countr...

apple (1)

It emerged this week that tech companies have been racing to fix the Meltdown and Spectre bugs, that could allow hackers to steal data. Apple said it had already released some patches but there was no evidence that the vulnerability had been exploited. But it advised downloading software only from trusted sources to avoid "malicious" apps. Mac users have often believed that their devices and operating systems are less vulnerable to security issues than, for example Android phones or computers running Microsoft systems. But the Meltdown and Spec...

apple (2)

The race is on to become the world’s first trillion-dollar company, with all eyes fixed on tech giants such as Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Alphabet, the parent company of Google.

Apple is leading the way, with a market valuation of $869bn on Tuesday, a figure arrived at by multiplying the company’s share price by the number of shares in circ... Read More »

Apple admits it DOES slow down older iPhones – but says it’s to make them perform BETTER

apple (1)

If you’ve noticed your older iPhone getting slower than it used to be, you’re probably not imagining it. Following reports earlier in the week, Apple has admitted that it does slow down old iPhones, but claims it’s actually to improve performance. Research into the speed of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 over time showed that some iOS updates were actually throttling the processor, making it slower. Apple has confirmed the findings from Geekbench developer John Poole, but has claimed it’s trying to prolong the life of devices, rather than ... Read More »

imac (1)

Apple has released its most powerful computer ever. The iMac Pro looks like the traditional computer that hasn't changed in years, except with a darker, space grey finish.

Apple watch and GymKit: how Apple finally made your wrist talk to your treadmill – and why that matters

apple (1)

Apple Watch users are familiar with how strong its health and fitness features are, helping you to monitor how much brisk exercise you do, how your heart health is doing and helping you to take a minute for mindfulness. Apple announced GymKit earlier in the year, to allow an Apple Watch to exchange data with gym equipment like treadmills, bikes, stair steppers and elliptical trainers. The idea was that though the Apple Watch was good at evaluating much of your active exercise, extra data that a treadmill, say, could glean would add to the Wa... Read More »
