Home MobilesMobiles News Sanket Vijayasarathy, 23 March 2017 Highlights Roman was able to unlock his mother's iPhone using her thumb
The four-year-old boy used Siri to call up emergency services
Response team was able to find Roman's address based on the conversation Recently, Apple's Siri voice-based virtual assistant is said to have helped a four-year-old boy save his mother's life after she collapsed at their home in Kenley, Croydon. The little boy used Siri to call up emergency services who were able to reach their house and attend to his mother.
The incident took place on March 7, according to a report by the Daily Mail. The four-year-old boy, Roman, was able to unlock his mother's iPhone using her thumb and used Siri to call 999 emergency services. You can hear a minute long exchange between Roman and the operator below.
During the call, Roman told the operator that he thought his mother was dead because “she's closing her eyes and she's not breathing”. The operator tried to guide Roman, asking him to shake his mother to check whether she could wake up. The response team was able to find Roman's address based on the conversation.
The officers arrived around thirteen minutes after the call was placed and found Roman, his twin brother and younger brother with their mother, who was unconscious on the floor. The paramedics were able to bring her back to consciousness after which she was taken to the hospital.
The audio was released by the police to show the importance of teaching children what to do in case of emergencies like this. “Hearing this call brings home the importance of teaching your young child their home address and how to call police or emergency services in an emergency situation,” Met Police Chief Superintendent Ade Adelekan said.
“If you do nothing else today, then I'd implore any parents of young children to sit down with them and make sure they know what to do in this kind of situation and that they know how to contact police or other emergency services in an emergency. As this case demonstrates so poignantly, it could really be the difference between life and death.”

Home InternetInternet News Indo-Asian News Service, 23 March 2017 After a hacker or group of hackers threatened to remotely wipe data from millions of iPhones including photos, videos and messages, Apple has denied any such breach into iPhones.
The hackers, who call themselves 'Turkish Crime Family', asked for $75,000 (roughly Rs. 50 lakhs) in Bitcoin or Ethereum (a form of crypto-currency) or $100,000 (roughly Rs. 65.5 lakhs) worth of iTunes gift cards in exchange for deleting a large cache of iCloud and other Apple email accounts, Vice blog Motherboard reported.
Reacting to the threat, Apple told Fortune on Wednesday: “There have not been any breaches in any of Apple's systems including iCloud and Apple ID. The alleged list of email addresses and passwords appears to have been obtained from previously compromised third-party services.”
The hackers claim to have access to nearly 559 million Apple email and iCloud accounts.
The hackers provided screenshots of alleged emails between the group and members of Apple's security team and threatened to reset iCloud accounts and remotely wipe victim's Apple devices on April 7 unless Apple pay them.
The Apple spokesperson, however, said that Apple is “actively monitoring to prevent unauthorised access to user accounts and are working with law enforcement to identify the criminals involved.”
According to reports, several email accounts and passwords may belong to an earlier breach at the professional networking site LinkedIn in 2012.
However, Apple customers who secure their iCloud accounts with the same passwords they use with other online accounts must go for new, strong passwords, the report added.

Home MobilesMobiles Reviews Ketan Pratap, 23 March 2017 Highlights The Xiaomi Redmi 4A has been priced at Rs. 5,999
It's a decent option for first-time smartphone buyers
Gadgets 360 rates the phone 7 out of 10 The Redmi series has anchored Xiaomi in the sub-Rs. 10,000 segment in India. The company launched its first Redmi smartphone, the Redmi 1S, in India in August 2014, and it was received well here. At a recent event, Xiaomi stressed how the Redmi 1S “was a phone way ahead of its time” and claimed that the new Redmi 4A is exactly the same.
That might be true, because other phones in the series including the Redmi 2 (and Redmi 2 Prime) in 2015, and Redmi 3S (and Redmi 3S Prime) in 2016 have impressed us consistently. These models have also been regular fixtures in our lists of the best smartphones under Rs. 10,000.
Xiaomi has already had one big success in 2017, selling over a million units of the Redmi Note 4 within a record 45 days of its launch. The Chinese company hopes to keep that momentum going with the Redmi 4A, which brings features such as VoLTE and a 13-megapixel rear camera to the budget segment. Will the new Xiaomi Redmi 4A be as big a hit for the company? We try to find out in our review.
Xiaomi Redmi 4A designOne of the first things you notice when you hold the Xiaomi Redmi 4A in your hands is that despite looking a lot like metal, the body is actually polycarbonate. The rear panel has separate segments at the top and bottom that mimic the antenna bands seen on metal-bodied Redmi models.
The new smartphone closely follows the design language of previous Redmi phones, and buyers in this price segment won't be disappointed. With a relatively small 5-inch screen, the Redmi 4A is compact and therefore easy to use with just one hand. The volume rocker and power button are easily accessible on the right side, while the hybrid SIM slot is on the left. The charging port is on the bottom, and there's a 3.5mm audio jack and infrared emitter on the top.

From the rear, this phone looks strikingly similar to the Redmi 3S. The Mi branding and the speaker grille at the back, are identical to those on the Redmi 3S. There is no fingerprint reader on the Redmi 4A, which isn't a surprise considering its price tag.
The phone has slightly curved edges, though we would prefer the overall shape of the Redmi 3S, which is more rounded and fits better in a palm, in our experience. On the Redmi 4A, the sides meet the edges with only a slight curve. However, the rear panel of this phone has a matte finish and offers a slightly better grip.
At roughly 132 grams, the Redmi 4A is lighter than the Redmi 3S which weighs 144 grams. Xiaomi announced at the India launch that the Redmi 4A is the “lightest Redmi ever.” Notably, both models are 8.5mm thick. The Redmi 4A has been launched in three colours – Dark Grey, Gold, and Rose Gold. We received a Dark Grey unit for review.

The Xiaomi Redmi 4A comes with a charger, Micro-USB cable, warranty card, user guide, and SIM eject tool. As with other Xiaomi products, the Redmi 4A's retail box doesn't include a headset, which might be disappointing for some users. The retail box flaunts a “Made in India” tag. At its launch event, Xiaomi stated that 95 percent of its phones are now manufactured in India.
Xiaomi Redmi 4A specifications and softwareThe Redmi 4A features a 5-inch HD (720×1280-pixel) display and boasts of a 296ppi pixel density. The company claims that the screen can reproduce 72 percent of the NTSC colour gamut. The display is vivid, and colour reproduction is adequate. We had no problems using the phone under direct sunlight. Text and images appear sharp while videos look good. The Redmi 4A offers a Reading mode which makes colours easier on the eyes, and also allows colour temperature adjustment through the Settings app.
The smartphone is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 425 processor clocked at 1.4GHz, with integrated Adreno 308 graphics. It has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage which can be expanded using a microSD card (up to 128GB). The handset packs a non-removable 3120mAh battery, which the company claims can deliver seven days of standby time. Apart from 4G with VoLTE, the Redmi 4A supports Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi 801.11 b/g/n, GPS/AGPS, and GLONASS.

The hybrid dual-SIM slot can hold one Micro-SIM and either a Nano-SIM or a microSD card at one time. When two SIM cards are used, the primary one can support 4G calls and data while the secondary SIM falls back to 2G calls only. The sensors on board include a gyroscope, accelerometer, proximity sensor, and ambient light sensor.
The Redmi 4A runs on MIUI 8 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The company at the launch stressed that there are a lot of features designed for Indian users. MIUI now supports 13 Indic languages including Hindi, Kannada, Tamil, Marathi, Assamese, and Bengali.
On the software front, a lot of features that were seen on previous Redmi phones have made it to the Redmi 4A, including the Dual Apps feature which allows users to create and sign in to two separate instances of any app (like WhatsApp, Facebook, and more) on the same device, and Second Space, which allows users to separate their business and personal data on the same phone. The Second Space feature also allows users to be signed in to two separate Google accounts.
The Redmi 4A allows users to take scrolling screenshots, so for example you can save an entire Web page which doesn't fit on one screen. Some of the other MIUI features include a Child Mode that lets you lock apps; the hovering Quick Ball button which provides quick shortcuts; and One-Handed Mode to shrink the display to one corner of the screen.
The dialler app in the MIUI 8 also has been improved and shows caller ID by default. We need to also give a special mention to the Mi Mover app that lets you move data from another Mi phone. There's a Themes app which lets you pick from a vast collection of wallpapers, ringtones, and fonts, some of which cost money. However, we do wish that Xiaomi could reduce the amount of bloatware on the Redmi 4A since it has only 16GB of storage. There are plenty of 'redundant' apps including Scanner, Mi Community, and Mi Picks. The Redmi 4A also ships with Facebook, Amazon Kindle, WPS Office, Makemytrip, and Flipkart preinstalled.
At its India launch event, Xiaomi also previewed a redesigned messaging app which will change how IRCTC train tickets are formatted on screen. When you receive a confirmation message from IRCTC, Xiaomi's MIUI 8 will recognise it and reformat it to look like an actual ticket, which will be visually refreshing.
Xiaomi Redmi 4A camera performanceThe Redmi 4A has a 13-megapixel rear camera with a 5-element lens and f/2.2 aperture. It also has an LED flash, and supports low-light enhancement, HDR, panorama, burst mode, and face recognition. You also get plenty of real-time filters which can be used for fun. There is a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with an f/2.2 aperture as well. You get 1080p and 720p video recording options at 30fps.
The phone's main camera manages to take pretty good shots with decent colours as long as there is enough light around. Shots taken during the day have better details. We were able to focus on objects quickly enough, but noticed that the camera at times struggled with close-up shots. Some of our close-up shots taken with the Redmi 4A ended up with lots of noise.
Tap to see full-sized Xiaomi Redmi 4A camera samples
The rear camera on the Xiaomi Redmi 4A didn't fare too well under artificial lighting, and shots ended up with some amount of noise. Low-light shots tended to have a decent amount of detail, though they were quite grainy. The front camera is able to take sharp and detailed selfies that can be used on social platforms, though it doesn't do well in low light. The phone can record 1080p videos, and the quality is good. The camera app is easy to use, and we liked the fact that access to modes and other things takes just one tap.
Xiaomi Redmi 4A performanceWe were fairly impressed with the overall performance of the Redmi 4A. There was no lag when multitasking, and it easily handled switching between multiple apps. We enjoyed streaming videos and movies on the Redmi 4A, but have to admit that the 5-inch screen feels a bit too small since we're so used to bigger phones now.
Gaming on the Redmi 4A was also fun, and we had a good time playing Asphalt 8 and Dead Effect 2. These games initially froze when we tried launching them because multiple other apps were already running at the background. During our review, we noticed that there was roughly 900MB of free memory at any given time, and we did feel that more RAM could have helped.

The Redmi 4A packs 16GB on board storage out of which users get roughly 10GB of usable space, and this means that we had to rely on expandable storage. The Infrared emitter on the Redmi 4A lets you control various appliances at home and works well with a variety of set-top boxes and TVs.
The loudspeaker on the handset is loud enough to fill a small room, and you should not expect it to outperform phones priced twice as high as this one. Earphones are not bundled with the unit, so we checked audio quality through our own wired earphones, and it was decent. Xiaomi offers various audio tweaking options in the Settings app.
The phone supports video formats like HEVC and MPEG4 among others plus popular audio formats including PCM, AAC/eAAC+, MP3, FLAC, and WAV.
One of the highlights of the Xiaomi Redmi 4A is that it supports VoLTE (voice over LTE), and the handset was able to latch on to networks even in areas with weak signals. Call quality was decent, and we could have long conversations comfortably because of how small and light this phone is. We didn't feel any overheating during our review.
The Redmi 4A got respectable scores in our benchmark tests. It managed 27,567 in AnTuTu, 16,693 ov..

Home AppsApps News Pranay Parab , 23 March 2017 Highlights Workflow is an automation app for iOS
It helps you accomplish complex tasks in one tap
The app is the best productivity app on iOS Apple has acquired Workflow, a productivity app on iOS. Workflow lets you chain multiple actions to create tasks that you can activate with just one tap or sometimes not even that. If you’re the sort of person who’d like to check your calendar for free times and share it with people, Workflow lets you create a one-tap action for this. Similarly, you can create a whole bunch of actions such as making a gif from the album art on Apple Music, among many others.
Workflow’s acquisition was first reported by TechCrunch but the report said financial details were not known. The move could mean that Apple realised that Workflow’s automation tools are something it can’t build on its own and that iOS and watchOS could use these tools. If we were to speculate, we’d go so far as to say that we’d see more productivity and automation oriented tools in future versions of iOS, maybe even as soon as iOS 11 that could be announced at WWDC 2017 in June.
While the iPhone is Apple’s leading breadwinner, the iPad is where productivity oriented tasks have more value. With the launch of two models of the iPad Pro, Apple has made it abundantly clear that it intends to push the iPad as a productivity device for professionals. It will be interesting to see how Workflow is integrated into iOS and whether it can help turn the iPad into a device that replaces a laptop for many people.
While Workflow’s acquisition does appear to be good news for Apple and its customers, the people who use the app may not be so chuffed. The latest update of Workflow removes support for several actions that compete with Apple products. Release notes inside the app show that maps actions in Workflow now support only Apple Maps, the Translate Text workflow is powered by Microsoft Translate, and workflows that involve Uber, Telegram, Google Chrome, Pocket, Line messenger, or Google Street View are no longer supported.
This is a typical big company move after acquiring an indie app. They tend to remove some of the app’s best features because those support products that compete with the acquiring company. We saw a similar thing when Amazon acquired Comixology, an independent comics app. The first thing Amazon did was remove support for buying comics via the Comixology iOS app, as 30 percent of the value of every purchase through the app goes to Apple.
The biggest deal-breaker for those who paid for Workflow, however, could be that Workflow gallery submissions are also gone for good. Workflow gallery is a curated showcase inside the app that helps people discover new workflows. We’ve found some of our favourite workflows through this feature and it looks like we’ll have to be content with workflows that are already in the gallery.
We’re big fans of Workflow, as we noted in our review of the app , and the app has only gotten better over time. It even won an Apple design award back in 2015. However, some of the features removed make it a lot less useful now so we’re just going to hope that the app’s integration with iOS will make Apple’s mobile OS a lot better in the future.

Home MobilesMobiles News Indo-Asian News Service, 23 March 2017 Apple's iPhone 6s has topped the list of bestselling smartphones in 2016, according to financial services company IHS Markit.
According to a press release on IHS' website on Wednesday, the new iPhone 7 was the bestseller in the fourth quarter alone, followed by iPhone 7 Plus.
“Apple again has demonstrated that its new iPhones integrate enough innovations and new features to drive sales and remain successful in the market. The company is also capable of selling older devices for an extended period of time,” the statement added.
Best-selling smartphones in the world in 2016: Apple iPhone 6s Apple iPhone 7 Apple iPhone 7 Plus Apple iPhone 6s Plus Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) Oppo A53 Samsung Galaxy J5 Samsung Galaxy S7 Samsung Galaxy J7The now two-year-old iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus were both among the most-shipped models in 2016.
Meanwhile, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S7 ranked fifth and ninth, respectively, outperforming Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge in terms of sales.
With the recall of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge became the best flagships in the premium line-up of Samsung.
Samsung has claimed five spots out of the top 10 most-shipped smartphones in 2016.
One of the models of Chinese manufacturer Oppo has also been listed among the top ten ranking.
Oppo registered a growth of 109 percent in smartphone shipments in 2016 to become the fourth largest smartphone maker in terms of unit shipment.
“Huawei, the third largest smartphone maker after Apple and Samsung, did not have any models in the top 10 most-shipped smartphones in 2016. Similar to Samsung, Huawei continues to address multiple smartphone pricing segments – either with its own Huawei-branded handsets or with those of its sub-brand, Honor. In the premium segment, Huawei's P9 was among its own top five most-shipped smartphone models in 2016, performing better than previous flagships,” the company's news release said.
