iOS 10.1.1 bug alert for iPhone

By

A recent iOS update to 10.1.1 fix Apple’s Health application has had unintended consequences for many users with shutdown occurring with 30% battery remaining and lack of audio when using Apple Earpods.

Users on an Apple forum report that the battery indicator jumps from 30% to 1% (dubbed the 30% bug) and a reboot is required. The phone then runs for a few more hours. Some have taken the iPhone back to receive a replacement only to find that the same thing happens.

Apple has not responded to the 11 pages of forum complaints but apparently, Genius Bar staff have identified unusual discharging of the battery – which does not make sense if a reboot temporarily fixes the issue and returns the battery indicator to 30%. It also appears to affect all versions of iPhone that support iOS 10.x.

Users have tried downgrading to 10.1 and upgrading to the 10.2 beta, but the problem remains.

In a related issue the Daily Mail Australia states:

“Apple vowed to fix a technical issue that has seen some iPhone 6s handsets shutting down unexpectedly. The Cupertino-based technology firm will replace batteries on affected devices, it said. The issue only affects a 'relatively small batch' of the devices manufactured last year, says Apple, but the company would not disclose the exact numbers. This is Apple's second iPhone repair program in less than a week after it announced that it would fix the 'touch disease' issue, albeit at a charge, blighting many users' iPhone 6 Plus handsets.”

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
