  • Apple launches another iPhone 6S repair programme this time affecting devices made in 2018 and 2019??!! | Not a typo


    Apple is launching yet another iPhone 6S repair programme and this time is trying to tackle some 6S units which apparently no longer are able to turn on because of a component defect.




     




    Interestingly enough, the affected devices are only iPhone 6S and 6S Plus models manufactured and sold between October 2018 and August 2019 and thus the majority of iPhone 6S units aren't affected by this.




     




    Quote





    Apple has posted notice of a new repair program to address an issue that prevents some iPhone 6S and 6S Plus phones from turning on.




    "Apple has determined that certain iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus devices may not power on due to a component that may fail," the page for the program says. The program is wordily called "iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus Service Program for No Power Issues."

    The issue does not affect all iPhone 6S and 6S Plus units; rather, it affects phones in a certain serial-number range that corresponds to some handsets sold between October 2018 and August 2019. The iPhone 6S was discontinued in North America throughout that window, but the company continued to make and sell it for some other regions.




     




    Apple's page for the service program invites users to type in their serial numbers to check if their devices are affected. The company also notes, "If your iPhone has any damage which impairs the ability to complete the repair, such as a cracked screen, that issue will need to be resolved prior to the service. In some cases, there may be a cost associated with the additional repair."

    Apple has determined that certain iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus devices may not power on due to a component that may fail. This issue only affects devices within a limited serial number range that were manufactured between October 2018 to August 2019.




    If you believe you have experienced this issue, please use the serial number checker below to see if your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus is eligible for repair, free of charge.










     




    I'm more surprised that Apple were still manufacturing iPhone 6S units in 2018 and 2019 tbh. This probably means they're still actively mass producing iPhone 7 (or at least were and might have stopped a month ago) and iPhone 8.




     




    I would encourage people who bought a 6S from Apple in between October 2018 and August 2019 to use the serial number checker to confirm and then send it back to Apple to fix the defect if you experience one.

    • Nationwide ban of Galaxy S10 Fingerprint Reader - fingerprint log in removed from banking app
      by Dudicrous
      Related to the recent security flaw found with the Galaxy S/Note 10 series, which you can read more about below 





      Banks in the UK have decided that the flaw with the fingerprint reader is too much of a compromise for its customers and have started removing the fingerprint option for the app. 




      At the moment it's just Nationwide and Natwest that have done so, but I wouldn't be surprised if others followed suit.

    • Intel Xe GPU release date, specs, and performance
      by Dudicrous
      The Intel Xe GPU represents Intel’s first foray into discrete graphics since the ill-fated Larrabee project many years ago. But let’s not dwell on the past, this is a bright new future for Intel, and potentially PC gamers too, as it means we’re going to have a genuine third player in the graphics market and that can only be a good thing. For us, at least.
      • It looks likely that the initial Xe GPUs will largely be based on the building blocks put in place by the Ice Lake Gen11 graphics architect

    • Verizon can't cover a basketball stadium with 5G
      by Dudicrous


      Quote





      Verizon on Friday announced that its 5G network is now available in three NBA arenas and is coming to seven more by the end of the 2019-2020 basketball season. But there's a big caveat, just like there is with Verizon's 5G coverage in NFL stadiums: Verizon 5G only covers some of the seating areas.

      TeamSpeak, one of the most popular voice communication apps for gaming before Discord came along and took over the world, is returning with a new look. The team behind the software has kicked off a closed beta for a completely new application that does away with the old school setup for something that will obviously be compared to what Discord offers.
