How to boost your iPhone X battery life

In a rare move, Apple recently admitted it was intentionally slowing down older iPhones after getting a flurrry of complaints. The firm even posted an open apology and is offering cheap iPhone battery replacements to anyone affected until the end of the year. 
READ NEXT: Why batteries are the most important technology on the planet
 Of course, it wasn’t on par with the fiasco Samsung faced when batteries in the Galaxy Note 7 began exploding in 2017, but it goes to show how battery technology is far from perfect, and how even the tech giants are struggling when it comes to meeting the power demands of its customers.
With this in mind, we’re going to be running a series of pieces on how to boost the battery life of specific handsets, to add to our collection of stories on how to boost battery life generally across smartphones and laptops. First up, how to boost your iPhone X’s battery life. 
READ NEXT: iPhone X review
The iPhone X – pronounced iPhone “ten” – is the expensive flagship handset Apple developed to mark the tenth anniversary of the original iPhone. It’s been on sale since the Autumn so, hopefully, the battery is still holding its charge well. That said, if you’ve noticed a drop or simply want to limit how much degradation it experiences, read on. 
In summary: 

Check your individual battery usage
Enable Low Power Mode
Disable Raise to Wake
Stop apps refreshing in the background
Manage your screen’s brightness levels

1. Check your individual battery usage

Without doubt, the best way to save power on your iPhone X is to enable iOS’ built-in Low Power Mode. It’s not unique to the iPhone X either, having been available since 2016. It offers a catch-all, quick solution to a draining battery and automatically disables background app refresh, auto downloads and resets the lighting and animation options to maximise battery life. Be warned though, you won’t get all your usual app notifications if you enable Low Power Mode. 
To enable, go to Settings | Battery and toggle Low Power Mode to “on”. The battery icon in the top right-hand corner will go from green to yellow to show it’s been enabled.
In iOS 11, you can additionally add the Low Power Mode controls to the Control Centre. Go to Settings | Control Center | Customise controls. Press the green “plus” button next to Low Power Mode in the list at the bottom of the screen and it will be added to the selected controls at the top. 
3. Disable Raise To Wake
A subtle, yet incredibly useful, feature that came to the iPhone in iOS 10 was the Raise to Wake tool. When enabled, each time you pick up your phone or orientate the screen towards you, the screen registers the movement and “wakes the screen” up. This means you can glance at your phone without pressing the power button on the side, or pressing the home button. The latter, in particular, can inadvertently unlock the device if you’re using Touch ID, which can be a pain. 
The benefits you get from this feature, though, can be undone by the amount of battery life you eat into by constantly making the screen light up. To conserve an, albeit small, amount of power, disable this feature by going to Settings | Raise to Wake and move the switch to the “off” position.
4. Stop apps refreshing in the background

Although you can automatically disable the Background App Refresh feature in Low Power Mode, you can also manually disable it while preserving other features. It pings the servers of your relevant apps to pull in your latest emails, see your new Facebook Likes, retweets, and more.
Regularly pinging these servers uses up battery because it means apps are running on your phone’s power (and data connection) even if the phone isn’t being used. 
To disable Background App Refresh on your iPhone X go to Settings | General | Background App Refresh | Background App Refresh and toggle the slider to the “off” position. You can additionally disable Background App Refresh for individual apps. 
5. Manage your screen’s brightness levels
Simply tweaking how bright your iPhone X screen is can work wonders for your battery life. The extra light used to illuminate your screen requires a fair amount of energy which drains your battery.
As a rule, the lighter it is outside, the more light you’ll need on the screen. For example, when lying in bed at night you can have the screen on minimum brightness and still see everything clearly. While in bright sunshine, you’ll need to turn the brightness levels to maximise to counteract the amount of light coming from the sun.
You can mange your screen’s brightness levels manually by swiping up from the bottom of the screen and adjusting the brightness slider (the one shown with a sunshine icon). Alternatively, go to Settings | General | Accessibility | Display Accommodations and toggle the Auto-Brightness switch to “on”. With this enabled, your iPhone X will adjust the display to suit the amount of ambient light hitting its sensors.

UE Megablast and Blast speakers are gaining Spotify voice controls

The Ultimate Ears Megablast and Blast speakers will soon offer support for Spotify voice controls, via the built-in Alexa assistant.
The Logitech offshoot has announced four new features for the recently-released smart speakers, continuing the tradition of after-purchase improvements.
The Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-enabled speakers are also adding compatibility with Spotify Connect, new speaker grouping options and enhanced app controls.
Let’s start with the voice controls though. When it launches, UE Blast users will be able to say “Alexa, play my Discover Weekly”, for example.
Services like Amazon Music, Deezer and TuneIn are already supported, so it’s about time Spotify joined the fray.
Related: Which Amazon Echo speaker should you buy?
As for Spotify Connect compatibility, which is also coming soon, users will benefit from one-touch playback from the Spotify app, without the need to connect through Bluetooth.
UE explains in a press release: “When on Wi-Fi, open the Spotify app on your phone and play music directly to our speakers (under “Devices Available”).
“With Spotify Connect, text message or make calls without interrupting the music and save your phone’s battery.”

The Ultimate Ears app now offers volume controls, which the company says will be useful when attempting to summon Alexa while music is blazing.
It’ll also be possible to check the battery status within the app or by pressing the “+/-” volume buttons simultaneously.
The company is also promising a new grouping experience for the speakers.
It explains: “You can group up to eight MEGABLAST and BLAST speakers on Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Stereo mode is supported when you connect two MEGABLAST or BLAST speakers. Optimized to take advantage of the speakers’ built-in Wi-Fi capability, you will experience greater range for grouped speakers and improved connection reliability. Grouping is expected to be available later this year.”
Will this update make you more likely to buy the UE Blast or Megablast speakers? Let us know @TrustedReviews on Twitter.

Look out Android: A $550 iPhone is coming to shake things up

We’ve been hearing a lot of chatter about Apple’s 2018 lineup already, and we can expect three new iPhone models to arrive this Fall. The new lineup includes an upgraded 5.8-inch iPhone X, a 6.5-inch OLED iPhone X Plus and a new 6.1-inch LCD iPhone. The latter is what I’m the most excited about due to some new details, and here’s why.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has just dropped some new details on the iPhones due to be revealed later this year, and there’s one remarkable aspect of the new 6.1-inch model that will make a lot of people do a double take. Kuo says in the investor note that the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will cost as low as $550. Based on the price, that makes it a strong competitor to many Android phones.
Apple’s devices are known for their high prices and high quality, so such a low price for an iPhone could invite a bit of suspicion or hurt the exclusivity of the brand. Then again, maybe the potential gains would be worth the risk for Apple. What the iPhone X has lacked in sales numbers, it seems to have made up for in high profitability, and the 6.1-inch iPhone could flip that script to sell a lot of reasonably priced smartphones. Between the third quarters of 2018 and 2019, Kuo expects Apple to sell between 100-120 million units of the 6.1-inch iPhone.

Opinion by Brittany McGhee

I would buy an upcoming iPhone if it wasn’t as expensive as usual
What do you think?

The 6.1-inch LCD iPhone could have two models according to the report. There would be a cheaper standard model with a single SIM and a second model with dual SIM. The dual SIM model would be dual SIM standby (with no eSIM), meaning the user would have to specify which of the SIM cards is able to make calls, as opposed to a dual SIM active where both cards can be enabled simultaneously. Don’t hold your breath for that second SIM slot to have microSD support. 
The single SIM variant of the most affordable of the three upcoming 2018 iPhones would cost between $550 and $650, while the dual SIM model could go for $650-750. The single SIM model could “help increase market share in China and commercial markets” according to Kuo, and I have no doubt that it could sway some Android users in the US whose primary gripe about Apple products is their price.
Right now, there are a ton of the latest and greatest Android options in the same price range: the OnePlus 5T ($569), LG G6 ($419), Google Pixel 2 ($551), Samsung Galaxy S8 ($594) and so on, but the new Apple smartphones cost hundreds more than that.
For those of us who don’t want to drop the maximum amount of cash possible on a product that will only last a few years before needing to be replaced, the new 6.1-inch LCD iPhone could be the relatively reasonably priced Android alternative we’ve been waiting for.
Are you excited for a lower price or dual SIM support? Let us know what you think of the upcoming iPhones in the comments!

Fitbit Versa hands-on review

WEARABLE GIANT Fitbit unveiled its latest smartwatch, the Versa, late last week, touting some new welcome new features and a completely new design, all with over four days battery life.
The new device builds on the success of the Fitbit Ionic which was released late last year, positioned not as a replacement but a cheaper alternative with slightly fewer tricks, such as lack of inbuilt GPS.
We were invited over to the sunny Costa Dorada in Spain to put the fresh device through its paces ahead of official release in the UK. Here are some of our initial thoughts.
Design and displayIn terms of looks, Fitbit has not retained any of the design features seen in its previous wrist-worn gadgets, apart from what you see on screen – but we’ll talk about that later. It’s a fresh look completely; a square with soft edges, which is being called, er, “Squircle” because it’s square with rounded edges, if you didn’t get it already.
Despite the awful shape name, we like the look of the Fitbit Versa. It’s neither this nor that, but it’s pretty nondescript and thus harmless on the eye, leaving you to concentrate more on what’s on the display than what’s going on around it.

The Versa isn’t only aesthetically pleasing, but it’s probably one of the most comfortable smartwatches Fitbit has made thanks to its super lightweight design. In fact, it’s Fitbit’s lightest smartwatch yet. Fitbit said it boasts an ultra-thin, anodised aluminium case and is slightly tapered and angled in its design to fit small or large wrists, so this is probably why.
There are also lots of different strap alternatives to choose from if you feel the need, including leather and metal alternatives.
As for the display, it’s a vibrant, colourful touchscreen with a brightness level of up to 1,000 nits. We tested this out while in the sunny beaches of western Spain and can confirm it’s easily visible in direct sunlight even when not turned up to the maximum brightness capacity.  
FeaturesWhether it’s to try and stay relevant in the age of the Apple Watch, Fitbit has ensured the Versa is brimming with features, just like it did with the Ionic.
An especially exciting one is its waterproofing, which not only means you can get it wet, but you can use it to track your water activities with a dedicated swimming mode. Fitbit claims this is more accurate than its competitors in accurately tracking your laps of the pool or performance in open waters, too.
During thrashing in both these types of swimming exercises, the Versa was able to work perfectly underwater and gave us on-screen recordings in with its brightly-lit display as we swam, updating the display with the number of lengths completed each time we stopped to take the next length.

This is thanks to the device’s new Run Detect feature, the Versa is clever enough to know when you’re taking a break, and automatically stops and starts tracking a run, swim or cycle by sensing the status of your movement. 
The other good news is that this feature doesn’t come into play if you don’t want it to. Choose a standard “workout” exercise from the list before beginning circuit training, for example, and it’ll track your heart rate continuously until you tell it to stop. Speaking of which, we are big fans of the heart rate sensor, which displays the corresponding measurements on the screen clearly whether you’re exercising or not. That’s one thing Fitbit do very well. On-screen icons are displayed beautifully and in a clean way so not to confuse you, too.
And thanks to new customisation options, you can also design your own watch faces to make the Versa look how you want it.
Firing up the Running app to ensure your run is tracked is easy enough. Simply select Running from the Exercise app by swiping left from the home screen, tap ‘Go’ and you can get your ass into gear. It seemed to track our run very well, pausing distance tracking right on time when we stopped to rest. Fitbit knows how to do fitness tracking better than most, so we had no doubts the Versa would impress us here.

Debuted on the Ionic, the Fitbit Pay platform is available to use on the Versa, too, meaning you can use the watch to buy stuff without your phone or wallet and will include major credit card companies like AMEX, MasterCard and Visa. The feature works well and just requires you to input a four-digit pin before bringing up the contactless payment screen, so if your Versa gets into the wrong hands, no-one can steal your money, too.  At the moment though it doesn’t work with every bank in the UK, but Fitbit is working to rectify this.
Later in the year, Fitbit said it will add a mode to Versa that will monitor specific women’s health issues, including menstruation. It’ll spot problems and identify patterns, which is definitely a USP compared to most watches (aside from Apple, of course) and the sleep apnoea detection algorithms are back too.
There’s also a new Deezer music integration which allows you to listen to music stored on the watch downloaded from your Deezer account via connected Bluetooth earphones. However, due to the limited time we had with the watch, we are yet to try this function. But hit us up in a week’s time or so when we will have tested it in a full review.
PerformanceSo, the big question: battery life. How long will the Versa last before you need to charge it again? We haven’t had sufficient time with the watch as of yet to test it fully, but let’s go off use after one full day.
For a start, Fitbit claims the Versa’s battery life is not quite on par with the Ionic, cited at four days instead of five. And after using the watch for a good solid 24 hours, we were rather impressed with its stamina. Obviously, this is dependent on how much you use it for measuring workouts throughout the day, but after a full charge and using it for a full 24 hours, including three workouts and sleep, it was at a rather impressive 60 per cent capacity. 
First impressionsWhile its features set isn’t quite on par with that of the Ionic, the Fitbit Versa feels very much the same watch in a different, lighter and friendlier design. And it’s also worth noting it’s not supposed to be replacing the Ionic, it’ll be on offer alongside it, as a cheaper, “lite” alternative, so to speak. As you’d therefore expect, there’s also a significant price dip – it’s £199, compared to £299.
The Versa is available for presale from now, with global retail availability coming in April. Check back soon for our full Versa review once we’ve had some proper time with it. µ

LinkedIn’s AutoFill plugin could leak user data, secret fix failed – TechCrunch

Facebook isn’t the only one in the hot seat over data privacy. A flaw in LinkedIn’s AutoFill plugin that websites use to let you quickly complete forms could have allowed hackers to steal your full name, phone number, email address, ZIP code, company and job title. Malicious sites have been able to invisibly render the plugin on their entire page so if users who are logged into LinkedIn click anywhere, they’d effectively be hitting a hidden “AutoFill with LinkedIn” button and giving up their data.
Researcher discovered the issue on April 9th, 2018 and immediately disclosed it to LinkedIn. The company issued a fix on April 10th but didn’t inform the public of the issue. Cable quickly informed LinkedIn that its fix, which restricted the use of its AutoFill feature to whitelisted sites who pay LinkedIn to host their ads, still left it open to abuse. If any of those sites have cross-site >

The NFL is finally rewarding London with good International Series games in 2018

Five years of Jaguars’ “home” games pays off.
For years, the American football fans in the UK have had to suffer through the regular season NFL games U.S. fans didn’t care about. The NFL London branch of the league’s International Series produced low-watt showdowns like Bears-Buccaneers, Rams-Cardinals, and a steady diet of the Jacksonville Jaguars in its attempt to grow the sport as a worldwide brand.
In 2018, fans in Europe will finally get a schedule the league can’t bury with 9 a.m. U.S. kickoff times.
The Jaguars will make their return to merry old England, but this time as winners after a surprising AFC South title and run to the conference title game. When they get there, they’ll face the defending Super Bowl champions as the Philadelphia Eagles make their foreign soil debut. It’s the biggest game the International Series has ever seen — and it’s a fitting love letter to the devoted fans they’ve built across the pond.

The 2018 schedule of international games
— Michael Signora (@NFLfootballinfo)

Of this year’s three games in England, one features two final four teams from 2017 (Eagles, Jaguars), another features a playoff squad vs. a reloaded 9-7 team (Titans, Chargers), and the last pits two West Coast teams with uncertain futures against each other (Seahawks, Raiders).
While Seahawks-Raiders isn’t the exciting game it was just two years ago, it will still bring Marshawn Lynch to England and American football to Tottenham’s new stadium. Otherwise, Eagles-Jaguars and Titans-Chargers are matchups lightyears ahead of most NFL London offerings.
(Mexico City, for what its worth, is also getting an awesome game between division champions when the Chiefs and Rams meet at Estadio Azteca. Mexican fans also got Patriots-Raiders in 2017. They may never know the struggle of London’s NFL supporters.)
No NFL London game had ever brought a defending champion to Great Britain, though the Patriots played in Mexico City months after winning Super Bowl 51. This year, the UK will get the Eagles and the Jaguars, coming off a season where the two teams combined for 23 wins — more than any other pairing in the NFL’s European history. Chargers-Titans will make it two games between teams with winning records the year prior. That’s the first time that’s happened and only the fifth and sixth time it’s happened in the 24-game history of the league’s London experiment.

London fans deserve this
The UK has been subjected to some legitimately bad teams in its decade of hosting NFL games. Ten of the 42 teams who’ve played overseas were coming off seasons in which they’d won four games or less. British fans were privy to watch one of Cleveland’s 16 losses in person last fall and the middle of a 1-15 Dolphins campaign in 2007.
No team has played more in London than the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have had a designated “home” game in the city each season since 2013. While the Jags have gone 3-2 in that span, their records by year look like this: 4-12, 3-13, 5-11, 3-13, and then last year’s 10-6 renaissance. Despite several years of abject horror, Jacksonville has built a following across the pond.
“London is our second home and it has adopted us,” Hussain Naqi, the Jags’ senior vice-president for international development, told City A.M. before the team’s 2017 game at Wembley Stadium. “You can tell that from the knowledge fans have developed about the game to the one-sided support that we’re getting.”
The team has even explored opening a training facility in London to strengthen its ties to the local community. Their constant presence has helped convince first-time fans to pull on the teal and white and back the Jags for their introduction to the American sport.
And now they’re backing a winner. Jacksonville developed an elite defense and drafted Leonard Fournette last year to create an ideal supporting cast for embattled quarterback Blake Bortles. Bortles responded with a pair of solid playoff performances, and now his team is an early favorite to repeat as AFC South champions.
But the Jaguars’ biggest chance to prove they’re legit will come Oct. 28 when they battle the defending NFL champions in front of some of their newest supporters. Jaguars-Eagles is the biggest game in the history of the NFL London series, and it’s the game where British fans who’ve invested their time in a once-hopeless franchise can finally cash in for one of the biggest games of the 2018 season.

Ivan Mauger obituary | Sport

When speedway’s popularity as a spectator sport was eclipsed only by football, Ivan Mauger was its greatest star. In an era when the sport, and many of its participants, were a little rough round the edges, Mauger pioneered hitherto undreamed-of levels of professionalism on and off the track, which he allied to perfectionism in the preparation of his machinery, and a clinical riding style. Mauger, who has died aged 78, won the world championship six times between 1968 and 1979 and led his British clubs to four league titles.
The first three of those championships came in consecutive years with the Manchester team the Belle Vue Aces, when their home was the 40,000-capacity Hyde Road stadium, part of a 68-hectare (168-acre) amusement park that included a zoo, fairground and dance hall. A good night out in Manchester in the early 1970s started with the Aces, whose management ensured at all costs that racing was over by 9pm so the crowd could get spending in the fair. It was an unusual weekend if the spectators had not seen Mauger score maximum points for winning all his races.
Ivan was born in Christchurch, on the South Island of New Zealand, to Alice (nee Forscutt) and Edwin Mauger, and grew up obsessed with sport. He was a talented rugby and hockey player – good enough to represent Canterbury at rugby and hockey as a schoolboy – as well as a cross-country runner. Unsurprisingly, he was a lifelong All Blacks supporter.

In a precursor of his later attitudes to turnout, he would not just clean his boots before a match, he would launder the white laces. Edwin liked bikes and American cars, and took the family to the new Aranui track that was part of the postwar speedway boom. Ivan took his first steps in oval racing shortly afterwards with a cycle speedway team and from there it was just a matter of adding an engine.
Mauger arrived in the UK in 1957 as a newly married teenager with his wife, Raye, and they headed for south London, to Wimbledon speedway, where their fellow Kiwis Ronnie Moore and Barry Briggs, both multiple world champions, had started their UK careers. Mauger got a job helping with track maintenance but did not make much of an impression as a rider. At the end of 1958, disillusioned, he and Raye went back to Christchurch.
They returned in 1963, fortified by competition in Australia and advice from the Aussie world champ Jack Young. The results started to come, as Mauger helped Newcastle Diamonds to the 1964 Provincial League (the second-tier) title, but the money took longer. The Maugers shared a flat in the Whalley Range area of Manchester with an assortment of aspiring riders. Visitors remember a loaf and jam on the table, but no butter, and children sleeping in the bath.
Up until 1995, speedway’s world championship was run along similar lines to the FA Cup. Riders worked their way through qualifying events and regional finals until just 16 were left to contest the world final. Mauger made it for the first time in 1966, finishing fourth, and went one place better next time. In 1968, still a Newcastle rider, Mauger went through the card winning all five of his races. In 1969 he did it again, dropping a point only in his final race as, with the title already retained, he shepherded his Belle Vue team-mate Sören Sjösten home to put him in a run-off for second place with Briggs.
He was now the fully formed professional, just in time to ride a popularity boom as the days of baggy black leathers gave way to TV coverage and colour. Mauger was indisputably the best in the world, but he was not universally popular with fans. Neither his personality nor his riding were theatrical. There were no wild broadslides on full lock – he dealt in beautifully traced arcs precisely calculated for maximum efficiency. Winning was more a cause for relief than joy. No detail was too small to escape Mauger’s attention. Racing, he said, was a jigsaw puzzle; every piece had to fit perfectly without being forced. Diet, sleep patterns, travel schedules were all planned with the world title in mind. Throughout his career he had just one engine builder, one wheel builder and one mechanic.

In 1970 he was champion again, and again with a maximum score. Mauger is still the only rider to have won three consecutive world titles. His other wins came in 1972, 1977 and 1979; between 1968 and 1974, he was never out of the top three.
On the domestic front, now comfortably ensconced in Cheshire, he captained the Belle Vue Aces to a hat-trick of titles, forming them into the best team the UK had seen. Mauger demanded high standards from other riders but was a generous team leader. One junior Ace was shocked when Mauger let him take first pick for grid position and on summoning up the courage to ask why was told: “They won’t let me pick my starting position in the world final.”
He was not given to sentiment. He won the league again in 1974 with Exeter, again with a squad he moulded. Next season, after he was booed at Belle Vue, he took cold satisfaction in Exeter winning the return fixture to prevent the Manchester club becoming champions. By contrast, he was always generous in his assessment of Jerzy Szczakiel, the Pole who beat him in the controversial run-off for the 1973 world title: “I made a mistake, he didn’t.”
On Mauger’s retirement from racing in 1985, he and Raye moved to the Gold Coast, Queensland. She survives him, along with their children, Julie, Kym and Debbie.

Spurs assistant Ettore Messina will serve as head coach for Game 3 vs. Warriors

Messina replaces Gregg Popovich, whose wife passed away Wednesday.
Gregg Popovich will not coach the San Antonio Spurs for their Game 3 showdown with the Golden State Warriors following the death of his wife. Assistant Ettore Messina will serve as head coach in his stead.
Erin Popovich, the future Hall of Famer’s wife of more than 40 years, died Wednesday after for an extended period of time. It’s unclear how many games Popovich will miss while he tends to his family.
His absence will give Messina the opportunity to spark a comeback in San Antonio. The Spurs lost the first two games of their opening-round series against the Warriors, but return to Texas for Thursday’s Game 3. While Messina has never been a full-time head coach in the NBA, his vast international resume and four years of experience under Popovich should leave him well prepared for playoff action.
The Italian has coached throughout the top levels of the EuroLeague, helming clubs like Virtus Bologna, Real Madrid, and CKSA Moscow in nearly 30 years as a head coach. In that span, he’s won four EuroLeague titles and won an impressive 74 percent of his games. He’s also spent six seasons guiding Italy’s national basketball team.
He’s filled in for Popovich in the past. Messina took his first turn at the helm in 2014 for a preseason game against the Phoenix Suns. In 2016, he served as head coach twice more —in a win over the Timberwolves and a loss to the Pacers — when Popovich was called away from the team for a family emergency. He’s expected to be a candidate for the Hornets’ open coaching position this offseason.
The Spurs and Warriors tip off Thursday night at 9:30 p.m. ET.
