Can a video CRASH your iPhone?

Apple has another problem in their hands, as YouTuber EverythingApplePro discovered a video that can freeze and eventually crash an iOS device.

Playing the video clip shown in the YouTube video will eventually slow down the iPhone until the device locks up completely. The only way out of this is to force reboot the device.

Some people have suggested that this has something to do with the video being corrupt, causing the iPhone to lock up after a few seconds of playing the vid. Although it doesn’t happen immediately, it starts to become noticeable after navigating around a few apps.

This seems to work on every iOS version possible from iOS 5 to iOS 10. While we don’t have any older devices for our testing, we can confirm this is happening with the YouTuber’s tests.

Hopefully Apple will fix this problem very soon, although it’s unclear whether devices that do not support iOS 10 will get the fix. A similar problem happened last year involving a text message.

While we will not include the direct link to the video here, the video may be found by searching around.


Apple announces new iPod touch

Apple has announced today the latest iPod touch.

The new iPod touch comes in brand new colours, featuring space gray, silver, gold, pink and blue. The new iPod touch features an 8 MP iSight camera for better photographs, an improved FaceTime HD Camera for better selfies. The new iPod touch comes with the Apple A8 processor, which is the same processor found in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

The new iPod touch comes with 802.11ac WiFi, which is the successor of 802.11n WiFI, meaning faster data transfer.

The new iPod touch comes preloaded with iOS 8.4, which includes Apple Music, a new music service.

Prices start at $199 for 16 GB, $249 for 32 GB, $299 for 64 GB and 128 GB for $399. It is now available for purchase from the Apple Online Store or a retail store.

Is Apple slowly abandoning the iPod?

The WWDC conference just happened a few hours ago, so most people would jump on to the Apple website to see what all the cool stuff were announced at the event. Ok, that’s cool and all, but we did notice one thing missing at the top of the Apple website:

Apple Website Top Bar

What do you notice missing? That’s right, the range of music players Apple was really known for, the iPod is now missing! Ok, that’s not a big deal, there’s a music button, let’s go there shall we?

The Music page is basically explaining Apple Music, Apple’s new music streaming service. But scroll down and you’ll find something:

iPod is hidden

That’s right, the iPod range has now been buried in the music page, where it is much more harder to find. Even though you can type apple.com/ipod in the URL bar, we feel something is happening.

Could this mean the end of the iPod? Given that Apple hasn’t made any updates to the lineup since 2012, and not talking about it much in their marketing, and now this, could this really mean the end?

However Apple Music and iOS 9 will be available on the iPod touch 5th generation, but that is really all to say when it comes to iPod news. What do you think? Leave your opinion in the comments below. (If you’re on the app, tap on Visit Website to comment)
