Apple Announces Free Repairs for Some Faulty iPhone X and 13-Inch MacBook Pro Units

Apple Inc. disclosed a pair of issues affecting two of its more popular products: the iPhone X and the 13-inch MacBook Pro.

The Cupertino, California-based technology giant said Friday the screen on some iPhone X units doesn’t respond or responds intermittently when touched. The company also said some units could have displays that react even when they aren’t touched. The iPhone X went on sale last November and was discontinued when the iPhone XS and iPhone XR models were introduced in September. Users have reported the touch screen issues online for several months.

Apple also said a “limited number” of 13-inch MacBook Pros have “an issue that may result in data loss and failure of the drive.” The laptops were sold from June 2017 to June 2018 with 128 gigabytes or 256 GB of storage and no Touch Bar, Apple said in a note to customers. The company recommends affected users have their laptops “serviced as soon as possible.”

In the case of the iPhone X, Apple is offering free screen replacements for the faulty devices, while it is offering free repairs for the MacBook Pros.

Apple hadn’t previously responded to reports of problems with iPhone X screens, but it had opened similar replacement programs in the past for older iPhone models with screen issues, including the iPhone 6.

Lee Chong Wei Announces Comeback Bid, Says ‘Recovery On Track’

After undergoing successful treatment for nose cancer, badminton star Lee Chong Wei on Thursday announced that he is planning to return to the court soon. The 36-year-old, who was making his first public appearance since September said that his recovery has been on track and is looking to start the training sessions as early as next month. The former world no.1 insisted that he had no intention of retiring and mentioned that he is looking forward to competing at the All England Open scheduled to take in March 2019.

“I finished all my treatment… and have recovered very well,” a cheerful and a healthy-looking Lee said during a press conference in Kuala Lumpur.

“I want to come back to court,” he said, adding: “As of now, I am not retiring.”

Lee, who returned from treatment in Taiwan last month, said it was his “dream” to play in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, which would be his fifth Summer Games.

“This is my dream. But health is most important,” he said, adding: “I just try my very best because I love my country… and I love badminton.”

Lee, who enjoys superstar status in Malaysia, was diagnosed with early-stage nose cancer, forcing him to pull out of the Asian Games and world championships.

On the advice of his doctors, he travelled to Taiwan for treatment during which he lost five kilos (11 pounds). He returned to Malaysia a month ago.

“This is a time that is very tough for me,” said Lee, who has slipped to eighth in the world rankings.

Nose cancer is perhaps the biggest blow suffered by Lee, who was banned after testing positive for a proscribed anti-inflammatory at the 2014 world championships.

Lee returned to the sport in 2015, after authorities accepted he took the drug inadvertently.

CBI Announces Reward For Information About Premkant Shivji Jha’s Murder

Premkant Shivji Jha was shot dead by unidentified assailants at Virar in 2012 (Representational)

The CBI on Tuesday announced a Rs 5 lakh reward for information about the 2012 murder of a Right to Information (RTI) activist at Virar in neighbouring Palghar district, an official said.

A Special Task Force or STF of the Central Bureau of Investigation is probing the murder of activist Premkant Shivji Jha.

The STF issued an advertisement in Marathi newspapers Tuesday, announcing a cash reward for anyone providing detailed information about the culprits, the official said.

Identity of the informant will remain confidential, he added.

Mr Jha was shot dead by unidentified assailants at Virar on February 24, 2012 when he was riding a motorbike. The bullets pierced his helmet and entered the head.

Initially, a case of accidental death was registered at the Virar police station, but it was converted into a murder case when an autopsy report revealed the bullet injury.

The probe was transferred to the police’s anti-human trafficking cell first, but no headway was made in identifying the culprits.

In October 2014, the CBI took it over on the Bombay High Court’s order.

In 2016, the CBI arrested two construction professionals for allegedly hiring contract killers to eliminate Mr Jha as he had sought information about their illegal constructions, the official said.

Mr Jha was part of ‘Brashtachar Va Atyachar Virodhi Samiti’, an NGO, and had filed several RTI applications and complaints against illegal constructions in the Vasai-Virar area near Mumbai, the official said.

It was also alleged that Mr Jha extorted money or obtained other favours from builders engaged in illegal constructions, he said.

Huawei has announced that the latest version of its custom Android ROM – EMUI 9.0 – will be rolled out to 9 models starting November 10. EMUI 9.0 is based on Android 9.0 Pie, and apart from the numerous new features that Google’s latest mobile operating system brings, Huawei’s iteration brings features like GPU Turbo 2.0, HiVision visual search, Password Vault, Digital Balance dashboard, and more. As with previous iterations of the operating system, EMUI 9.0 also comes with AI-based predictive features that learn user behaviour to improve system response speed, app launch time, and more.

To recall, EMUI 9.0 was first unveiled in September, and has been available in beta for several models since, starting with the Huawei Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, P20, P20 Pro, Honor 10, and Honor Play. Since the beta, it has launched four smartphones running EMUI 9.0 – Huawei Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20 X, and Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design. The Honor Magic 2 also runs it, but only temporarily, until Magic UI 2.0 is rolled out to it.

Getting back to the news at hand, Huawei’s EMUI handle in a Weibo post late last week revealed that the EMUI 9.0 will be rolling out to the nine of its top-end smartphones on November 10. The smartphones that will be receiving the EMUI 9.0 update from that date are the Huawei P20, P20 Pro, Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, Mate 10 Porsche Design, Mate RS Porsche Design, Honor 10, Honor View 10 (known as Honor V10 in China), and Honor Play. GSMArena cites Chinese sources to claim that the rollout will be global.

The Chinese telecommunications giant has previously also revealed that EMUI 9.0 will be launched in India with country-specific features. It added that EMUI-specific research is conducted in a localized fashion, with different research institutes in India, China, Europe, and North America.

Let’s take a look at some of the top features of EMUI 9.0: GPU Turbo 2.0 is designed to optimise intensive workloads and give an on-demand performance boost to the devices while reducing power consumption. There is also an Uninterrupted Gaming Mode to meet the needs of mobile gamers. Using onboard AI capabilities, EMUI 9.0 brings HiVision that enables the camera app to recognise major landmarks, paintings, and structures surrounding the environment and provide users with the relevant information using a layer of augmented reality.

EMUI 9.0 additionally includes a new Password Vault that helps users store their encrypted password with face or fingerprint for various services. Plus, there is a new Digital Balance dashboard that allows users to track device usage metrics and let them set the usage quota for each app. Other features include new navigation gestures, multiple backup options, one-handed controls, and improved Huawei Share features.

Virender Sehwag Parts Ways With Kings 11 Punjab, Announces News On Twitter

Virender Sehwag has ended his association with Indian Premier League (IPL) Kings XI Punjab, the former India opener announced on Saturday evening. Sehwag was appointed appointed by Kings XI Punjab as the mentor of the team before the start of the 2016. Sehwag spent two seasons with KXIP as a player following which he was with the team as a mentor for three years before ending his association on Saturday. Sehwag broke the news on Twitter, saying that “all good things must come to an end”.

“All good things must come to an end and I’ve had a wonderful time at Kings 11 Punjab, for 2 seasons as a player and 3 as a mentor. My association with Kings 11 comes to an end and I am thankful for the time I have had here and wish the team all the very best for the times ahead,” the former India opener tweeted.

Sehwag’s decision to quit Punjab comes at the back of as season where he reportedly got into a spat with co-owner Preity Zinta. 

According to reports in the Indian media, there was a fall-out between the two after Punjab’s loss to Rajasthan Royals.

However, the Bollywood star made a passionate defence and quashed the reports, saying that “a conversation between Viru & me has been blown out of proportion & suddenly I’m a Villian.”

Despite some impressive buys and brilliant start to the season under the captaincy of Ravichandran Ashwin, Punjab failed to keep the consistency in the second part of the 2018 season and finally finished in second-last place with six wins and eight losses in 14 matches.

Punjab had won their opening five matches out of six and it seemed that Punjab will finally break a string of poor performances over the years to qualify for the playoffs.

But an extraordinary fall from grace saw them losing seven off their next eight matches to finish just two points above bottom-placed Delhi Daredevils.
