Does your iPhone shut down automatically at night? Apple customer service response

According to China-Singapore Jingwei, some netizens reported that the iPhone automatically shuts down at night and users can only use their password to unlock the screen after getting up. Apple customer service responded yesterday:

The iPhone does not have the function of automatically shutting down at night. If you need to re-enter the password, there are two situations. One is that the phone has been turned on and off many times recently, and the other is that Face ID has been used incorrectly many times and the password can only be manually entered to unlock.

Customer service suggests that if you encounter this situation, you can choose to restore the phone settings and reset Face ID.

Images generated using the Firefly Image 2 model have higher resolution, as well as more vivid colors and color contrast.

The Image 2 model also introduces new AI editing capabilities to help users customize results. Photo settings can manually or automatically adjust the depth of field, motion blur, and field of view of the resulting image.

A "prompt guidance" function has also been added to help users improve the wording of text descriptions, while automatically completing prompts to improve efficiency.

Google pays Apple $18 billion to $20 billion a year to be the default iOS search engine

According to The Register, a report by investment management firm Bernstein estimates that Google pays Apple $18 billion to $20 billion annually to remain the default search engine for products such as the iPhone, accounting for 14-16% of Apple's annual operating profit. .

"We believe it is possible that a federal court will rule against Google and force it to terminate its search agreement with Apple," Bernstein said in the report.

Bernstein said that Google invests 22% of its advertising revenue in traffic acquisition costs (TAC), while Apple accounts for about 40%.

According to previous reports, Google pays Apple billions of dollars every year to set it as the default search engine on Apple devices. Much of the trial was conducted behind closed doors, and officials did not disclose how much Google paid Apple.

Huawei related person: Real 5.5G mobile phones are not expected to arrive until the first half of 2024

According to "IT Times", Huawei related sources revealed that as early as the end of this year, flagship mobile phones from major mobile phone manufacturers will reach the 5.5G network speed standard, with downlink speeds reaching 5Gbps and uplink speeds reaching 500Mbps.

But the real 5.5G mobile phone may not arrive until the first half of 2024.

5.5G, or 5G-A (5G-Advanced), is the evolution and enhancement of 5G. Network capabilities such as connection speed and latency have been improved by 10 times. As a reference, the downlink rate of 5G mobile phones is generally within 1Gbps.

At the MWC Shanghai exhibition in June this year, Yang Chaobin, Huawei director and president of ICT products and solutions, said that Huawei will launch a full set of 5.5G network equipment for commercial use in 2024.

Survey shows iPhone is still the most popular phone among American teenagers

Investment company Piper Sandler recently conducted a survey of 9,193 teenagers in the United States, and the results showed that the iPhone is still the most popular smartphone among American teenagers.

The survey shows that 87% of teenagers own an iPhone, and 88% expect their next mobile phone to be an iPhone.

Additionally, Apple Watch ownership is growing, but at a slower pace. 34% of U.S. teens own an Apple Watch, up from 31% last year.

Findings on payment apps revealed that Apple Pay topped the list in the latest report, with 42% of respondents saying they had used it in the past month.

It is reported that this report was a survey conducted by Piper Sandler between September 4 and September 27, so it was mainly before the iPhone 15 series was launched.

Ideal holds an autumn strategy meeting and regards Huawei as the strongest competitor

According to 36Kr, Li Auto recently held a four-day autumn strategy meeting to discuss Li Auto’s strategic direction and implementation pace for the next 5-10 years.

At the strategic meeting, smart driving was mentioned to an unprecedented height. Li Xiang even reflected on himself that smart driving should be fully invested in half a year in advance, that is, starting from the middle of last year instead of starting at the beginning of this year.

Li Auto is one of the few companies that has bucked the trend and thrived this year. It has maintained a sales momentum of "selling what it produces". In the first three quarters, it sold a total of 244,000 vehicles and has few rivals.

But in September, Huawei's new M7, which was launched in the industry, received more than 50,000 large orders only 25 days after it was launched, seeming to be taking the industry by storm.

Previously, Ideal internally listed BYD, Huawei and Tesla as strong competitors according to the market structure in 2025, with BYD ranking first. This year, the name has been replaced by Huawei.

In the past September, Li Auto's sales reached 36,400 vehicles, and its monthly sales exceeded 30,000 again.

The monthly sales volume of Lili L9 was 11,967 units, Lili L8 was 11,306 units, and Li Liang L7 was 13,088 units. Sales of the three models once again exceeded 10,000 units at the same time. In October, Li wanted to hit a new monthly sales high of 40,000 vehicles.

Xiaomi responds that TV startup ads can be permanently turned off

Recently, some netizens posted that Xiaomi TV can now permanently turn off screen ads.

Previously, the Jiangsu Provincial Consumer Protection Commission required a number of smart TV brand companies to provide "one-click turn off" functions for startup ads, and filed a public interest lawsuit against LeTV, which refused to make corrections. In the end, the court ruled that smart TV startup ads must be "one-click turned off." .

According to Dumiao Finance, when I asked Xiaomi’s official customer service, the other party said: “We can permanently turn off the startup ads. You need to provide your phone number and Xiaomi ID. It is expected to wait for 2 working days.

As for when the startup ads can be permanently turned off, the other party said that it will probably start within the next two months.

 OpenAI scientists: GPT-4 is about to pass the inflection point

According to X user "Xiaohu"'s sharing, OpenAI scientist Hyung Won Chung said in a speech at Seoul National University:

GPT-4 is about to pass the inflection point and achieve a significant jump in its performance.

He believes that we need to change our mindset, because large language models (LLM) have huge potential, and some of its capabilities will only appear when the number of parameters reaches a certain scale.

Even if the current LLM still performs poorly in some aspects, we cannot rashly conclude that "it doesn't work." More accurately, it should be "it's not good yet."

Once the model scale is expanded, many original conclusions may be overturned.

Hyung Won Chung said LLM has the potential to continuously learn from failed experiments to improve problem-solving capabilities.

MacBook Pro with OLED screen could be released as early as 2026

Sources say Musk wrote a letter threatening Warner not to fire "Hai Qian"

A new report from "Variety" reveals the behind-the-scenes filming of DC's new film "Aquaman 2". The film went through multiple reshoots and deleted at least two of Amber Heard's "Queen of the Sea" scenes.

Jason Momoa was drunk on the set of Aquaman 2, dressed like Johnny Depp, and said he wanted to fire Amber Heard, according to notes from Amber's therapist.

Reports indicate that Amber Heard was almost fired from "Aquaman 2". After "Aquaman" was released, Warner Bros. and James Wan decided that Heard would not need to return for the sequel because she lacked chemistry with Momoa.

In the end, Heard was not fired from "Aquaman 2" because her ex-boyfriend Elon Musk wrote to Warner through his lawyer, saying: Keep Heard or ruin everything. Warner Bros. caved and kept Heard.

Amber Heard, Jason Momoa and director James Wan all refused to respond to the above revelations, and Warner denied it.
