But does age warrant a new set of guidelines?
This story is part of , our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters.
Ah, October. Leaves turning brown, air getting chillier, pumpkins getting spicier — or something. And now, Apple’s new iPhone too. That’s right, the company’s next-generation smartphone, , is expected to launch this year with a new boxier iPad Pro-inspired look, faster processing chips and . Here’s what we’ve heard so far about the and , and a few .
The new iPhone is the smartphone Apple fans and industry watchers alike have been waiting awhile to see. It’s the first iPhone X, with its new face unlocking design and better screen technology. One survey from Decluttr, a device recycler and reseller, found that a “staggering” 53% of respondents plan to buy this year’s iPhone, touching off what analysts call a “supercycle” of phone upgrades.since 2017, when Apple introduced its $1,000
“We believe iPhone 12 represents the most significant product cycle for Cook & Co. since iPhone 6 in 2014 and will be another defining chapter in the Apple growth story looking ahead despite a softer consumer spending environment,” Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives wrote in an Oct. 6 note to investors. He called this launch a “once in a decade” event for Apple.
All told, Apple’s event promises to be interesting. It’s the third such big product announcements Apple’s made during the and killed more than 1 million., which has infected more than 35.6 million people worldwide
Apple’s event will also overlap with Amazon’s annual Prime Day sales event, which is . Amazon typically holds its annual shopping holiday , but like everything else, the coronavirus appeared to throw off those plans too.
While the iPhone will be a key product we see at Apple’s event this year, and likely what most people focus their attention on, the company’s expected to have. Those include new called the AirPods Studio, potential updates for the , a potential “ ” that sits somewhere the $399 iPhone SE and $699 iPhone 11 and maybe, potentially, even Apple’s to find your lost keys, among other things.
Apple’s online-only event follows the company’s last announcements in September.
When is the Apple event?
Apple’s online-only event will be held on Oct. 13 at 10 a.m. PT, which is 1 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. BST and 4 a.m. AEDT on Oct. 14 (sorry, Australia).
Where can I watch Apple’s livestream?
You’ll be able to stream Apple’s event straight from the company’s website.
What we can expect, besides the iPhone 12 launch?
Apple’s digital events are fast paced and slickly produced. And there’s at least one or two jokes they throw in to keep you entertained.
Let's encrypt the fund building an HTTP back-end based on Hyper (Rust) – The Market Mail
If we have read in recent times that the famous tool for requesting in many protocols is being rewritten with the language created by the Mozilla Foundation, it is not.
Daniel Steinberg has clearly detailed it on his blog. The base libcurl library is written in C and will remain so. Even though the language has its own problems and weaknesses are sometimes detected, none has been significant and their numbers are decreasing.
Above all, this software brick found in millions of machines worldwide is known for, stable and appreciated. A full port would be a pharaonic job, even before Google eventually recalled Steinberg.
However, the design of CURL is flexible. It can be compiled with different back-ends, 33 to be precise. Each can be used to support a particular protocol, with its advantages and disadvantages.
The announcement made a few days ago is about the creation of a new back-end for HTTP requests. It will use Hyper, a library used in Rust, a language considered “memory safe”, because of its design and its specialized memory management.
This back-end, which will support both HTTP / 1 and HTTP / 2, will support quiche and Mesalink, already supported as well as written in Rust. Its construction was funded by ISRG, the organization behind Let’s Encrypt N.
Steinberg says the job will take time. Hyper does not yet have an API that allows it to communicate with code written in C, its development is underway. Only after this step can the actual design of the new back-end begin.
A dedicated branch has been created on the CURL GitHub repository. No date has been given yet on the outcome of the project.
Fitness: Exercise is a golden opportunity for older adults – Sarnia and Lambton County This Week
It used to be that the golden years were all about putting your feet up and taking it easy. But that was before exercise was linked to a reduced risk of chronic disease and increased longevity. Being physically active is now considered a vital component of a long and healthy life, and is especially important for older adults, including those who have yet to jump on the exercise bandwagon.
But there’s no clear consensus as to what type of physical activity is best suited for older populations looking to take advantage of all that exercise has to offer. Is the non-age-specific recommendation of 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise or 75 minutes of vigorous exercise a week the best option? Or are there workout routines that offer better results for older exercisers?
A team of researchers set out to get answers by comparing the long- and short-term results of three exercise routines on a large group of Norwegians aged 70 to 77, divided into three groups. The control group (780 people) was asked to follow the national guidelines for physical activity, which in Norway call for 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week. The second group (387 people) swapped out two days of the general 30-minute workouts for 50 continuous minutes of exercise performed at an intensity equivalent to 70 per cent of their maximum heart rate. The third group (400 people) was also asked to swap out two days a week of the 30-minute workouts, but their routine consisted of four high-intensity intervals of four minutes performed at 90 per cent of their maximum heart rate. Fitness and health data for all three groups, whose average age was 72.8, was collected at the start of the study and again one, three and five years later.
To ensure the two non-control groups stayed on target, they met regularly with professionals who supervised workouts designed to ensure participants exercised in the appropriate training zone, with intensity measured by heart rate monitors and ratings of perceived exertion. Adherence to the exercise routine was analyzed through self-reporting, with anyone who participated in less than 50 per cent of the workouts considered to be non-compliant. At the end of the study, two physicians analyzed the medical data of all three groups, including any deaths, without knowing which exercise routine they followed.
The researchers anticipated that the two groups that exceeded the national recommendations for physical activity would realize an added boost of longevity, but there were no differences in the mortality rate between those who followed the 30-minute general routine and those who didn’t. There was, however, a slight boost in longevity among the high-intensity interval group when compared to the exercisers who performed 50 minutes of continuous moderate-intensity exercise.
The researchers aren’t sure why their hypothesis wasn’t realized, but suspect it had something to do with the overall good health of the study subjects. A whopping 80 per cent reported a medium or high level of physical activity at the start of the study, which suggests that exercise was already contributing to their overall health and longevity. Another finding to consider is that 47 per cent of the exercisers doing the high-intensity interval training stuck with it to the end of the study, compared to the 69 per cent of the controls who kept up their routine for the full five years.
“Participants in the control group did not receive supervised exercise, yet exercised at relatively high levels throughout the five years,” said the researchers.
Another unexpected finding is that peak oxygen uptake, a measure of cardiovascular fitness, showed no age-related decline over the course of the study. This is good news for older exercisers, as a decline in peak oxygen uptake is typical in this age group and is associated with an increased risk of premature death and coronary heart disease.
The bottom line is that there are a number of options for older adults who want to reap all the health benefits physical activity has to offer. It’s also clear that for active older adults, judging the effectiveness of a workout by its length or intensity isn’t a good practice.
“The central implication is that either shorter-duration vigorous physical activity or longer-duration moderate physical activity or a combination of the two, that amount to the same amount of work each week, will have the same favourable health outcomes, with vigorous physical activity being the time-efficient alternative,” stated the researchers.
So go ahead and pick the workout of your choice — or better yet, mix it up between all three routines featured in this study. For older adults, not only does exercise have the potential to mitigate several of the negative health conditions associated with aging, it can truly make the latter decades of life golden.
Apple warns of new iPhone 12 upgrade – The Queens County Citizen
Newly Support document Marked by Macroomers, Apple has quietly warned consumers that there are some significant pitfalls to its innovative new MagSafe wireless charging system, which extends beyond concerns Its weak magnets.
In the range of bullet points at the end of the document, Apple’s Magazine’s warning buyers of iPhone 12 series phones:
- If your iPhone’s battery is “too warm”, say that charging is limited to 80% capacity, increase the heat and limit charging.
- Magnetic strips and RFID chips on credit cards, security badges, passports and key fobs can damage the back of your iPhone and between the MagSafe charger. Apple a Mag Safe Wallet, So be very careful.
- Damages leather cases used with chargers by leaving “circular seals”. There is a similar damage to silicon cases Also reported A few days later, questions should also be asked as to what this does to the glassbacks of the case-less iPhone 12 models over time.
The most obvious fear of accidentally wiping out your credit cards is that the last point (which Apple writes in small gray at the end of the support document) seems to be pressed evenly.
Replacing the damaged iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro rear windows will cost 9,449 (up to $ 50 on the iPhone 11) and 99,549, respectively. Yes you can buy Apple’s AppleCarePlus insurance policy (iPhone 12 – $ 7.99pm / $ 149 upfront; from $ 50.
And the costs continue to rise from here. The same support document says “Your iPhone will charge less quickly [with MagSafe] When using a power adapter that delivers less than 20W ”. Apple never sold the 20W charger with the previous iPhone and the chargers are now removed (Ear pods). So it will be Another $ 20.
Yes, there is a lot to like about MagSafe and as third party tools grow, its potential will be huge. Apple’s warnings around it are important and no one yet knows whether to upgrade to the iPhone 12 model, the second generation Magsafe may want to see if it launches with the iPhone 13 next year.
And, what Apple has About iPhone 13 has already been confirmed, Which is a very wise move.
