It’s possible that you accidentally lost your music collection on your PC, or your PC itself and now your iPhone, iPad or iPod is the only place where your entire music library lives. But iOS is a closed system, there’s no way to just share your songs from the music library. And if it’s someone else’s Mac, you can’t sync using iTunes either.
By now, you must be familiar with the long press action in iOS. Like when you tap and hold on an app icon and they all start to jiggle. When you press harder on the screen (don’t worry, you’re not going to break anything), you’ll engage 3D Touch. You’ll know because one, there will be a vibration feedback on the screen. Second, something will happen on screen.
A new rumor originating from Mac Otakara suggests that Apple could potentially expand the free battery replacement program from the iPhone 6s to the iPhone 6. The company had announced a free battery replacement program for the iPhone 6s in November last year after numerous complaints from users about their handset shutting down randomly. This led Apple to discover that it had shipped a small unit of iPhone 6s with faulty batteries.
Following China, South Korea’s Korean Agency for Technology and Standards is now also considering launching an investigation into some iPhone 6s units randomly shutting down. The investigation is still under review, with no official word on when — if at all — it will go live.
Despite being a point release, iOS 10.2 comes with a number of new features and changes. As we have seen with the release of any major new iOS release, a speed test comparison follows with the latest released version and the older version to see how it affects performance, especially on older devices.
A support document from Apple suggests that the random shutdown issues plaguing certain iPhone 6s units is more common than the company had initially anticipated it to be. Apple had first narrowed down the issue of iPhone 6s units randomly shutting down to a battery issue for which it has also started a replacement program.
Over the last few weeks, an issue with batteries and some iPhone 6s units unexpectedly shutting down has made the rounds quite a bit.
