Apple knows you need your beauty sleep — and that your iPhone is one of the only things standing between you and your pillow. In fact, studies suggest the bright, blue light of an iPhone screen may be to blame for our zombie-like sleep deprivation, and that warmer tones could help lull us to sleep.
Fortunately, iOS 9.3’s Night Shift feature is here to help.
“A lot of waking hours went into thinking about sleep,” Apple writes of its new iPhone tech. “Night Shift uses your iOS device’s clock and geolocation to determine when it’s sunset in your location, then it automatically shifts the colors in your display to the warmer end of the spectrum. In the morning, it returns the display to its regular settings…Pleasant dreams.”
Shadowy hacking industry may be helping FBI crack an iPhone
Turns out there’s a shadowy global industry devoted to breaking into smartphones and extracting their information. But you’ve probably never heard of it unless you’re a worried parent, a betrayed spouse — or a federal law enforcement agency.
Now one of those hacking businesses may well be helping the FBI try to break into the iPhone of one of the San Bernardino killers.
Each Saturday, Farhad Manjoo and Mike Isaac, technology reporters at The New York Times, review the week’s news, offering analysis and maybe a joke or two about the most important developments in the tech industry.
Mike: Greetings, Farhad! Or should I say, “Sup, brah?” I’m trying to change my vernacular to a more local dialect, as I am now a Californian living in the Bay Area.
Farhad: Yeah, say, “Sup, brah?” That’s how we all do it. Especially if you’re interviewing important people, that’s the best opener.
Mike: I “hella” agree.
Onto the news!
