iOS 14 released for iPhone users few weeks back but a battery drain issue has become a big problem which according to Apple only has one fix.
Apple’s iOS 14 rolled out for iPhone and iPad late last month. The new updates can be installed just like any other updates.

Motorola teases Razr 5G, smart home appliances | BGR India - BGR India
Motorola has teased the new Razr 5G along with its smart home appliances for the Indian market. The products are launching in the upcoming festive season.
Motorola has been busy this year. It started on a high note with the Razr folding phone and then followed up with a host of interesting smartphones across various prices. The recent one to make a positive impression was the Moto G9 and the just-announced Moto E7 Plus. Just before the festive season comes up, Motorola has teased a host of new products coming to India, possibly including the new Razr 5G. Also Read - Motorola Moto E7 Plus launched in India: Price, specifications, and more On its social media pages, Motorola has come up with a video teaser hinting at a couple of lifestyle products for the market. The teasers are vague but it is evident that the new Razr 5G is among the bunch of the goodies aimed at our market. The Razr 5G was recently announced in the international markets with all-round upgrades over the 2019 model. You can expect Motorola to price the new Razr competitively against the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip.

Based on the teaser, it seems Motorola has plans to bring the upgraded Razr foldable phone to India. This is contrary to the rumors hinting at the new Razr 5G avoiding the Indian market. The first generation Razr is selling at a price of Rs 1,24,999 and it recently got a special limited-time discount of Rs 30,000. Motorola may replace the older one with the new model or reduce the price of the current Razr to accommodate the 5G model. The Razr 5G is a generational upgrade with lots of improvement, at least on paper. The new model uses a more up-to-date Snapdragon 765G chipset paired to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. The folding display remains unchanged and so does the clever hinge mechanism. The rear panel is now made of glass instead of plastic on the original one. The fingerprint sensor now sits at the back with the Motorola logo. Motorola has also upgraded the main camera to a 48-megapixel unit and the inner camera to a 20-megapixel unit. The phone costs $1,399 in the US and is expected to have similar pricing for India once it launches here. Comments - Join the Discussion
Facebook unveils Oculus Quest 2 VR headset for $299 | BGR India - BGR India
Facebook announced the improved Quest 2 VR headset with support for 90Hz refresh rate at the Connect event on Wednesday this week.
Facebook has launched the next generation of Oculus Quest VR headset this week. The Quest 2 gets a slew of improved features and still gets a price tag of $299 (Rs 21,827 approx). The popular Quest VR headset successor was initially planned to launch by the end of 2020. However, it seems the company has managed to meet the deadline with ease.

But Facebook mentioned that during the launch, the support is limited to 72Hz refresh rate, since not all applications can make use of the higher refresh rate. In terms of the design, Quest 2 gets some much needed attention. VR headsets should ideally be comfortable to wear for longer duration. And the Quest 2 accommodates those needs with its lighter design, helping it reduce the weight by 10 percent. On the headset, there is a soft-touch strap, that will allow users to experience VR without any discomfort. Oculus pointed out the controllers with the Quest 2 can last up to hours longer than its predecessor. However, using the Quest 2 won’t be possible without having logged in to Facebook account. So, if you don’t have one, Quest 2 will force you to get it. The VR headset comes in two variants, one with 64GB of onboard storage that is priced at $299 and you have the 256GB model that costs $399. Oculus will start taking pre-orders from this week and shipping happens next month. As always, this headset won’t coming to markets like India, but we’re hopeful Facebook considers it in the near future. Comments - Join the Discussion

OnePlus unlikely to launch Nord in China | BGR India - BGR India
OnePlus launched the Nord in Europe India and it confirmed plans to skip offering the phone in the US where it is going to offer something new.
OnePlus launched the Nord mid-range phone last month. This is the first 5G phone from the brand to be offered in the sub 30K price range. The company has launched the phone in Europe and India but won’t be coming to US. But a new report has come to light that suggest Nord won’t be launching in China as well. Even though the brand hasn’t shared its launch time lines for China, someone from the company might have just done it unofficially. Also Read - OnePlus Nord users complain about Bluetooth connectivity issues As given in this report, a development engineer from the brand itself, was quoted sharing this update. He revealed that Nord will not be coming to OnePlus’ home market. It’s very rare that a Chinese brand decides against launching a global product in its native market. But going by this development, it’s possible that OnePlus might want to keep Nord for the non-China markets. Also Read - OnePlus Clover to take on Redmi, Realme: Entry-level smartphone with low-end specs We’re hoping to hear more about this from the company itself in the coming days.

In fact, OnePlus is already working on one and it will be called the OnePlus Watch. Thanks to a listing, it seems the smartwatch will launch along with the OnePlus 8T series later in the year. Specifications of the device are still under wraps. OnePlus has long toyed around with the idea of its own smartwatch. Back in 2016, OnePlus said it was working on a smartwatch and even completed the designs. However, the company backed out at the time probably due to the technological constraints. Same was the case for its wireless charging and water resistance features for its smartphones. All that is changing this year and a smartwatch now make sense.

Realme 6i Review: Check price, features and specifications | BGR India - BGR India
Realme 6i Review: Buy Realme 6i from flipkart check price in India features specs Realme 6i sale battery life camera performance comparison and best deals.
Until this year, Realmes positioning was crystal clear for people looking to buy a new budget-oriented device. If you want to spend less and get a quality device, go for the C series. If you want to spend a little more, go for the Realme number series, which at the time, was represented by the Realme 5 and 5 Pro. Things changed when the Realme 6 series came into the picture. However, after a recent price hike, the 6 series started costing more, becoming not easy of a choice it once was. This void created around the Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000 bracket, is where the Realme 6i comes in. Also Read - Realme 6i, Realme Narzo 10A sale today via Flipkart: Price in India, specifications Starting at Rs 12,999, the Realme 6i offers impressive specifications, including the MediaTek Helio G90T gaming-oriented processor, a 90Hz refresh rate screen, and 30W fast charging, among others. But all that is on paper. Should you actually buy this phone? Read our review to find out. Also Read - Realme 6i First Impressions: A more affordable Realme 6 Watch: Realme X3 SuperZoom Camera Review Realme 6i Design, Build The Realme 6i is basically a Realme 6 with most changes under the hood. One of the primary elements where Realme has saved some money on this device is by not creating a new design, similar to what Apple did with the new iPhone SE 2020. The entire look of the phone is the same as the Realme 6. You still have the 6.5-inch screen, the punch hole camera, the fingerprint-enabled power button on the right, and the volume rockers on the left. The USB Type-C port goes on the bottom of the phone along with the 3.5mm port, mic, and speaker grille. Also Read - Realme 6i launched in India with MediaTek Helio G90T; check price, features, specifications On the back is the same vertical camera strip with a detached LED flash. However, we see two very dull, boring colors, in the form of a white and a black variant, which is the one we have with us. The yester-year colors quickly remind us of why they went extinct compared to the modern colorful, gradient finishes we now see on most devices. The build quality isnt the best either here. The sturdy back of the Realme 6 is replaced with a flimsy plastic back that feels somewhat cheap. The Realme 6i features a punch-hole front camera on the top left. Moreover, it even presses inwards towards the center. This is surprising as the phone is very well-built on the front and the sides, which makes the back look like a mismatch from the moment you hold the Realme 6i in your hands. While we understand the cost-cutting, the back of the phone and the colors are the most disappointing aspects of the phone. Display The display panel in use on the Realme 6i is the exact one on the Realme 6. This practically makes the device the cheapest smartphone with a 90Hz refresh rate-enabled screen. For people who want that smooth, flowing, 90Hz goodness, getting it on a budget was a reality with the Realme 6 already. Now it is even more affordable. Coming to the quality of the screen, the IPS LCD delivers good performance. Colors on the FHD+ panel look great and details look crisp enough. The display is also fairly visible in outdoor brightness. Performance and Software The Realme 6i features a MediaTek Helio G90T. This is the same processor used on the Realme 6, and while the chipsets are one of the first elements to meet the hammer when a phone needs to be toned down, the Realme 6is G90T is its the biggest strength. The processor allows you to do more than just handle a bunch of day-to-day tasks and apps smoothly. It enables the phone to take 4K video, enables HDR gameplay in PUBG Mobile, and in general, makes the phone a bit more powerful than its closest competitors. The Realme 6i also runs on Android 10 with Realme UI on top. Just like we have seen with a few of Realmes recent devices, the brands own skin grows more polished with each release. A little bloatware still comes pre-installed but it is easy to get rid of. Every element throughout the interface has a touch of clean minimalism. Further, the software optimization on the Realme 6i, clubbed with the 90Hz screen results in an experience that feels snappy, in addition to being snappy. Realme 6i Camera The Realme 6i offers punchy pictures that look good. Shots feature a vivid feel thanks to some generous saturation levels and high contrasts. We also see a decent dynamic range of pictures. For when the saturation levels still feel low, you can always turn on the signature Realme Chroma Boost mode on to get an extra punch. Although, we often found these pictures too saturated for our liking. It works best when not used with naturally occurring elements like trees, water, and leaves, which will look too loud. Edge detection on the portrait mode is fairly accurate and results are fast and pleasing to the eye. Coming to some low light shots, the Realme 6i saw some massive drop in quality. However, that is expected in this segment. That being said, the software-based Night Mode worked great. It will also intelligently decide how dark the environment is, taking the exposure time to up to 4 seconds in extremely low light scenarios. The ultrawide sensor on the Realme 6i is like most ultrawide sensors you will find in this segment with images that look great but feature lesser detail. The Macro Mode has the same issue we have seen with a lot of Realme phones now and that is instability. You will require an unreal amount of stability in your hands if you want to take a clear macro shot. Check out our camera samples below. Coming to the front camera performance, we see mixed results. The pictures themselves are great and we saw nice details and great color reproduction and contrast levels as well (portrait mode off). With portrait mode, however, the colors and contrast levels seemed to vanish pretty quickly. Realme 6i Battery Life Just like the Realme 6, the 4,300mah battery on the Realme 6i is nothing to boast about, considering phones in this segment are starting to offer up to 6,000mAh batteries. However, the phone can support fast charging at 30W which offers faster top-ups. Note that you get a 20W charger with the box to keep the costs low but if the extra charging speed is important to you, you can always spend a little extra later and buy the 30W brick. With a 30W adapter, this is one of the fastest charging phones in its price segment, if not the fastest. Realme 6i Review: Verdict The Realme 6i is a great value for money device. Its compromises, especially the design, prevent it from being a totally perfect budget mid-ranger. However, these compromises are in just the right areas to not bring down the core experience, and this is where we believe the Realme 6i shines. Cost-cutting is evident in the design, the low storage variants, and the lack of a 30W brick in the box. However, you still get the MediaTek Helio G90Ts performance, which is a great deal at this price. The selection of what to keep and what to drop here, make the Realme 6i arguably the best performance-oriented, affordable mid-range phone in this price bracket.

OnePlus Nord Lite concept teased with fewer cameras | BGR India - BGR India
OnePlus Nord Lite series concepts show dual and tripe cameras on two cheaper models. The Nord Lite series could use the Snapdragon 690 chip.
OnePlus is adopting a different strategy in the post-COVID-19 ear with its smartphones. While going more premium with the OnePlus 8 series, the OnePlus Nord is its attempt to have a strong foothold in the midrange segments. The Nord has got decent reviews but is still out of reach for many. OnePlus seems to be addressing the issue as tipsters get hold of information about its upcoming smartphones. Also Read - OnePlus Nord open sale from August 4 on Amazon India: Price, offers Popular tipster Max J. has shared some concept images of two OnePlus devices that could end up in the Nord series. Note that these are just concepts and not actual renders. Hence, these give us a fair idea of what to expect if OnePlus does an even cheaper Nord device. There are two phones expected to come out with a varying level of features and luxuries. Also Read - OnePlus Nord users reporting screen tint issues, company responds WATCH: HP Omen 15 2020 Review The concepts show a familiar design language to the existing OnePlus Nord. At the back, you see the same plain-jane design with vertical camera layouts. One of the models is having a triple sensor setup while the other one gets a dual-camera setup. To the front, these models feature a modern narrow-bezel display with a small punch-hole cutout. This is a drastic departure from Nords pill-shaped cutout. Also Read - OnePlus Nord Review : OnePlus Nord Lite expected specifications These concepts dont accompany any specifications but we can always speculate. Rumours have long said OnePlus planning two phones using the Snapdragon 690 chipset. This chip belongs to Qualcomms 5G chip lineup and is meant for budget smartphones. Hence, OnePlus could rely on this chip to reach the sub-Rs 20,000 segment once more since the OnePlus X. It’s a leak… sort of.Let me introduce Codename “Billie” or as we call it: Aurora. The devices are based on our imagination but I believe they could be very close to the actual phones. Yeah, “phones” – pluralhttps://t.co/Aa7GNBfOh9pic.twitter.com/X7o4y5LGvc Max J. (@MaxJmb) August 2, 2020 There could be two phones, possibly called the OnePlus Nord Lite and Nord Lite Pro. OnePlus may stick to 90Hz AMOLED displays on both the models but could alter other specifications. The entry-level variant could use 48-megapixel Samsung sensor for its main camera. This could be accompanied by an ultra-wide camera. The higher-spec model could gain a third macro camera to justify the cost. Apart from the cameras, the two models may vary in terms of RAM and storage capacities. Batteries may also be different for both the phones with different charging speeds. Given that these are built to a price, OnePlus could rely on plastic panels instead of glass on the Nord. In terms of market positioning, the entry-level Nord Lite could be starting at around Rs 15,000. This may put it up against the Redmi Note series devices and Motorolas One Fusion+. The higher-spec model could start from almost Rs 20,000, thereby bridging the gap between the Nord and its cheaper siblings.

Instagram says the camera on indicator on iOS 14 was caused by a bug - BGR India
Instagram Apple iOS 14 Camera On Indicator Bug - Check out how the photo-sharing app by Facebook raised a security alarm.
Since its announcement in June, Apple iOS 14 has revealed details of apps that access the user’s clipboard. The functionality alerting users when the clipboard is accessed has shed light that some do it for no apparent reason. Some of the applications found accessing clipboard of iOS user include LinkedIn, Reddit and even TikTok. However, the discoveries do not end there. Also Read - WhatsApp: How to set auto-reply messages on the messaging app The next big update to Apple’s mobile operating system also indicates when an app is using the camera or microphone. Apple is the champion of user privacy and this prominent notification showing which app is using camera is very useful. Guess what, this can also alert when bugs enable camera of the device. Instagram learned this lesson a hard way. Apparently, the iOS 14 camera usage indicator sometimes stayed on even when the Instagram app was not being used. The iOS 14 users observed that camera indicator remained on even when they were just scrolling through their feed. We know this, as it shows a green dot, indicating that the app is accessing the camera. Also Read - Apple iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 public beta released with redesigned homescreen, scribble, compact UI and more new features The expected behavior would be for Instagram to only access the camera when necessary, such as when you are creating a story or posting a photo. But as it turns out, it also accesses our smartphone’s camera in the background when not in use, due to its supposedly called bug. Also Read - Indian Army wants personnel to uninstall 89 apps including PUBG, Instagram, Zoom Instagram responds Instagram has explained to The Verge that this behavior is just a mistake. “We only access your camera when you tell us to for example, swipe from Feed to Camera. Instagram has found the bug in iOS 14 Beta that mistakenly indicates that some people are using the camera when they arent. We do not access your camera in those instances, and no content is recorded. According to the company, the system sometimes assumes that the user has slid his finger to open the camera, but that’s not the case. Instagram promises to fix this problem in a future update of its iOS app. The iOS 14 is currently available as a beta version. It is likely to make its stable debut later this year in September alongside the upcoming iPhone 12-series launch event. Comments - Join the Discussion
