Apple iOS 10.3.1 Is Now Available. What's New?

Apple iOS 10.3.1 Is Now Available. What's New?

 

iOS 10.3.1

 

Apple has released iOS 10.3.1, which is only one week after iOS 10.3 was releasediOS 10.3.1 is considered a minor update as it patches security issues and contains bug fixes. And the iOS 10.3.1 software update release note simply just says: “iOS 10.3.1 includes bug fixes and improves the security of your iPhone or iPad.”

What Is Included In The iOS 10.3.1 Update?

iOS 10.3.1 essentially fixes some of the problems that were caused by iOS 10.3. Soon after iOS 10.3 was released, Apple had to pull it from the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c. Fortunately, iOS 10.3.1 fixes the problem that Apple was seeing with the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c as confirmed by AppleInsiderIt is worth mentioning that the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c were Apple’s last iPhone models to have a 32-bit processor (Apple A6 system on a chip). The iPhone 5s did not have any problems because it has a 64-bit processor.

 

Apple was dropping support for 32-bit apps. Going forward, Apple is going to start showing a popup dialog box when a 32-bit app is opened that says: “This app will not work with future versions of iOS. The developer of this app needs to update it to improve its compatibility.” It has been reported that Apple has already started phasing out 32-bit support in the iOS 10.3.2 beta that was released last week.

In Apple's security notes, it says that iOS 10.3.1 contains a fix for a Wi-Fi flaw that was reported by Gal Beniamini of Google Project Zero. This flaw could have allowed “an attacker within range may be able to execute arbitrary code on the Wi-Fi chip.”

Crashing Any iPhone Or iPad With An Emoji Text Message

crash-iphone A newly discovered bug in Apple's iOS mobile operating system that lets anyone crash your iPhone or iPad by just sending an emoji-filled iMessage, according to several reports. YouTube star EverythingApplePro published a video highlighting a sequence of characters that temporarily freeze and restart an iPhone.

Here's the first troublesome text: A white Flag emoji, the digit "0" and a Rainbow emoji. This simple numeric character, flag, and rainbow emojis confuse iOS 10 devices when it tries to combine them into a rainbow flag. As soon as this text is received, the iPhone's software attempts to combine the emojis but fails, and the messaging app crashes and eventually reboots in a few minutes. The recipients do not even have to open or read the message.

There is Another iPhone-crashing method involves the same characters, but saving them as a contact file and then sending that file to an iMessage contact via iCloud's sharing feature. This, in turn, will crash the target's device, even if the victim has not manually opened the file.

Both of the methods mentioned above will crash an iPhone or iPad to varying degrees, although the simple text string sent via a standard iMessage appears to affect iPhones and iPads running iOS 10.1 or below. However, the contact file affects all versions of iOS 10, including Apple's latest iOS 10.2 operating system.

There is nothing you can do "except blocking the contact that sends this type of messages to you to protect yourself against this issue, as these iPhone-crashing issues have the ability to crash and reboot your iPhone or iPad without your interaction.

So, we hope that Apple releases a patch quickly to plug the issues, though the company has declined to comment on the issue.

This is not the first time EverythingApplePro has shared iOS-crashing issues. Click here to watch the video.

IPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus... What's New

 

Apple calls them the best and most advanced iPhones ever. In many ways, they're exactly that. They've got improved cameras, including a new fusion camera on iPhone 7 Plus. They've got better cellular radios iPhone 7 features LTE Advanced, with speeds up to 450 Mbps for data downloads — over 50 percent faster than iPhone 6s and three times faster than iPhone 6. And thanks to even more LTE bands, you’ll have the best worldwide roaming available in a smartphone. And processors, including a new A10 Fusion. Also, for the first time, they're officially water resistant.

 

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus take away the 3.5mm headphone jack and The Home button is completely reengineered, which some will find inconvenient if not infuriating. What they add, though, are better cameras front to back, with significantly improved low-light performance, and a new 2x optical zoom on the Plus model, with simulated bokeh to come. There's also water resistance, and a much more powerful processor that's also efficient enough that, when combined with a slightly larger battery, can provide for an hour or two of extra battery life a day. The speakers are also louder now, top and bottom, and stereo, and the phones can capture and display P3 wide gamut color.

No Touch ICs in the IPhone 6S/6Splus

When you compare between the IPhone 6/splus  board and the IPhone 6S/6Splus, you can easily tell that the Touch & Display system has changed.

According to our analyses and hardware studying and troubleshooting, both IPhone 6 and IPhone 6plus suffered from a real problem in the Touch system. The two Touch controller ICs are easy to crack and loose connection with the IPhone Board (PCB). There is a small IC which responsible for supplying the two Touch controller ICs with the needed power. SFS Programe users know that we explained the troubleshooting steps for this problem and how to solve it showing all the responsible components and the testing sequence and principles.

IPhone 6S/6Splus wont suffer from same problem cause the touch controllers are integrated in the CPU and there are two ICs responsible for supplying the touch circuit with the needed power, one of them is the main power IC. SFS service gives you the full troubleshooting sequence if you faced any problem with IPhone 6S/6Splus touch.
