About your iPhone 11 series: iOS 13.1

Published

iPhone 11 series
  Trending recently amongst other top notch devices is Apples iPhone 11 Series (11, 11pro & 11pro Max). These trio which comes in various colors, specifications and prices are indeed a head spinner when it comes to style. Apple when it comes to mobile security is one of the leading names, so with each update they release, the do much well not to compromise one’s data security. To this note Apple has released its 13.1 iOS update with new features and is currently applicable to its latest devices which might not sound so “musical” to lots of users. Some of the features includes: The CPU throttling; not so new but its a feature that is aimed at improving the phones functions and would somehow mean bad news for older devices with aging batteries…in most cases prompting the phone to shutdown randomly. ‘Genuineness’ notifications that would appear in case you’ve changed your screen with a non-genuine one i.e. all handsets from the iPhone 11 family will prompt you with a message on the lock screen that your panel isn’t genuine, or the repair wasn’t performed by a certified Apple technician. This message will go on for four days and then will move in the main settings menu for another 15 days. After that, it will remain for good in the phones “About” section. It’s unclear if the this would become a thing for older iPhones as Apple has included only the Trio in the announcement. The company also took the time to warn users what may occur if they change their screen in a non-certified repair shop:
  • Multi-Touch might not respond on parts of the screen
  • Degraded Multi-Touch performance, such as missed screen touches or touches not registering in the right location
  • Touches might unexpectedly register during a phone call
  • Display might not turn off during phone calls
  • Accidental edge or palm touches might register
  • True Tone display doesn’t function correctly
  • Lost or degraded function of the ambient light sensor, causing the screen to dim or brighten incorrectly
  • Incorrect display color calibration, such as the display to appearing too yellow or blue
  • Display isn’t uniformly bright
  • Lower maximum brightness
  • Unintentional battery drain.
Apple believe that this step is not only to secure your device but to also protect it from unauthorized tamper…But what they didn’t consider was the available of their service centers in other countries, but I guess this would help encourage extra caution when handling the device.
