Samsung will release an update Kills remaining Galaxy Note 7
After the Galaxy Note7 was eradicated from existence, Samsung expressly asked users to return the phablet and take advantage of the available ailments.
But the thing is, a lot of users don’t seem too keen on following Samsung’s guideline. We recently told you it is estimated that more than 1 million customers are still holding on to the potentially dangerous Note7. Some still consider the device a very capable phone, one that’s not easily replaceable. Some users are waiting for Samsung to unveil the Galaxy S8 next year, but we’re still a few months away from that.
Therefore Samsung will release an update for their Galaxy Note 7 smartphones that will prevent them from charging and functioning as mobile phones on December 19. Continue reading Samsung to Release Update that ‘Kills’ Galaxy Note 7
Another bad news again. AirPods were originally slated to launch in October, but the wireless earphones were later delayed. Apple said it needed “a little more time” before they are ready for customers, and it has yet to provide an official update since.
While the exact reason for the delay remains unclear, a person familiar with the development of AirPods told The Wall Street Journal that Apple’s troubles appear to be related to its “efforts to chart a new path for wireless headphones,” in addition to resolving what happens when users lose one of the earpieces or the battery dies.
A person familiar with the development of the AirPod said the trouble appears to stem from Apple’s effort to chart a new path for wireless headphones.

Apple has said AirPod earpieces each receive independent signals from an iPhone, Mac or other Apple device. But Apple must ensure that both earpieces receive audio at the same time to avoid distortion, the person familiar with their development said. That person said Apple also must resolve what happens when a user loses one of the earpieces or the battery dies.
Last month, Barclays analysts said AirPods should enter production in December. Continue reading Again AirPods Delay Due to Apple Want to Ensure Both Earpieces Receive Audio Simultaneously
Apple is putting together a team of robotics and data-collection experts who will use drones, and “new indoor navigation features,” to bolster and further improve the quality of Apple Maps. The move is said to be positioned as a method to catch up with Google, the longtime leader in the mapping field (via Bloomberg).
The drones will be able to capture and update Apple Maps at a far quicker rate than Apple’s collection of GPS data-collecting minivans, which began appearing in the United States in early 2015.
In addition, a new feature is said to be coming to Maps that will let users view the insides of buildings, thanks to its Indoor.io and WifiSLAM acquisitions, Continue reading Apple Plans to Use Data-Collecting Drones to Improve its Apple Maps
