Apple has formally agreed to be Clear with iPhone Users
Apple has formally agreed to be “clearer and more upfront with iPhone users” about battery health and performance to ensure compliance with consumer law.
BBC Reports: In a pledge submitted to the Competition and Markets Authority or CMA, Apple committed to several actions it has already taken, including providing consumers with “clear and comprehensible information” about lithium-ion batteries, unexpected shutdowns, and performance management in iOS and on its website.
Apple also said that if a future iOS update materially changes the impact of performance management when installed on an iPhone, it will notify consumers “in a clear manner” of those changes in the release notes for the update.
So if your expecting a update in the future and if that update will impact your device apple will actually tell you it might affect your battery life or maybe slow down your device.
The New Red Hot Samsung Galaxy S10 Leaked!
This Red Hot Samsung Galaxy S10 has been surfacing the web recently and it really looks quite stunning.
Although the manufacturer hasn’t officially confirmed the new variant, several renders depicting the handsets in this paint have popped up. There is also no confirmation regarding when these would be available, whether they will be exclusive to specific carriers, or even to some countries.
This leak comes from Roland Quandt and it shows the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ in what he calls “Cardinal Red.” There is no mention of release date (other than “coming soon”) or region availability, which is particularly important.
Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ in “Cardinal Red” coming soon.

Roland Quandt is a fairly reliable source when it comes to things such as this and Samsung is known to launch new colorways of its flagship devices not long after the main launch period. If this leak is accurate, it would bring the total number of S10 colors up to five including white, black, green, and blue. We will keep you guys posted if Samsung decide to drop this bad boy.
