If you’re an Apple Watch user you can check your battery level right on your Watch, but did you know you can also check the battery on your Apple Watch from the iPhone it’s paired to? This tip will come in especially handy during colder months when it might be easier to pull out your iPhone than to pull up the long sleeve covering your watch. If you’ve been wondering how to check the battery on an Apple Watch from your iPhone, read on to find out.
During the first day we spent with the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s, we focused on introductions and a hardware overview. We’ve had a bit more time with it now and we want to share our thoughts on the updated UI (and its gestures) along with camera, including testdriving the HDR mode. As you may have heard, Xiaomi is on a path to give you as much screen real estate as it can and the way to do it doesn’t include a notch. Instead, the company slimmed the bezels as far as they would go and even removed the familiar Android navigation buttons. These buttons have been replaced with gestures – swipe…
It seems the cadence of episodic game releases on the App Store goes a little something like this: A game that follows a pay-per-episode DLC schedule will be released on the App Store, and it’ll cost money. As more episodes are released, the first episode goes free to entire new players into getting their feet wet in the series and then buying the rest of it. Telltale has been following this model for years now, and it seems Square Enix is following suit with Life is Strange [Free]. The whole first episode recently was made available for free, and it’s difficult to think of many people playing through it and not wanting to continue.
We reviewed the first episode when it was first released last year, and the basic premise of the game has you playing as a high school student with the unique ability to rewind time to alter the story. In some cases, fiddling with the timeline will result in good things, and sometimes the results will be terrible- Ya’know, like most time travel stuff.
The art style of Life is Strange is fabulous too, and even if you somehow don’t get sucked in by the story, it’ll be a quick (and now free) visual treat for you to enjoy. Definitely give this one a look.
As promised, Apple has included a new section in Battery Settings to include information about Battery Health. Battery Health (Beta) is available in iOS 11.3 and later and displayed on all iPhone models since the iPhone 6. You can see the estimated battery capacity and the screen explains whether the battery can offer peak performance. iOS will now tell you in this screen if your device is being throttled due to a degraded battery.
When you update to iOS 11.3, the device will have performance management. The device will be throttled automatically when the system first experiences an unexpected shutdown. You can disable the slowdowns in the Battery Health screen if you want. Read everything about Battery Health after the jump …
