May was taken to a holding cell and released two hours later on a $200 bond.The ex-husband claimed to police that he owned the phone.

When we tested iOS 11 on the iPhone 5S, it was clear that it was slower than iOS 10 had been but that the iPhone 5S’ hardware was fast enough to keep everything usable. That’s especially true if you tempered your expectations: the phone was going on four years old at the time. But at the time, some of you asked us to test a handful of other older iOS devices, particularly the A7-equipped iPad Air and Mini 2 and the A8-equipped iPhone 6 Plus. In the iPads, the same A7 CPU and GPU that powers the iPhone 5S’ screen has to adequately support a tablet with more than three times as many pixels. And the A8 in the 6 Plus draws a 2208×1242 image which is then downscaled to the phone’s 1080p screen; that means using a CPU that was around 25 percent faster than the A7 and a GPU that was only 50 percent faster to support a phone with 277 percent as many pixels.

Later Apple … [Read more...] about iOS 12 on the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPad Mini 2: It’s actually faster!
After introducing Siri Shortcuts for iOS 12 — a way for users and developers to teach Siri to do more than just fumble for directions and songs — Apple notably left the feature out of iOS 12 betas, later releasing it as a standalone app for developers to test. A Redditor appears to have discovered the reason: The Siri Shortcuts app consumes enough system resources that at least one of its features won’t work on older devices. In an email exchange between developer Federico Trevisani and Apple SVP Craig Federighi, the software engineering chief says that while Apple always tries “to bring as many new software capabilities to as many devices as possible,” sometimes it can’t do so “without compromising the overall performance of our older devices. Unfortunately, this was the case for Siri Shortcuts on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.” While the email superficially appears to suggest that Siri Shortcuts won’t appear on the older devices at … [Read more...] about Apple’s iOS 12 Siri Shortcuts will reportedly be limited on iPhone 6
