iPhone 14 may support always-on display

Last year's iPhone 13 Pro was Apple's first model to support a 120Hz ProMotion display. According to reports, the two iPhone 14 Pros will continue to carry this technology and may have greater refresh rate variability.

Display analyst Ross Young said he expects ProMotion for the iPhone 14 Pro series to drop to 1Hz. This technology can provide support for longer battery life or always-on display in the future.

Last year, however, Mark Gurman of Bloomberg also said that the iPhone 13 would have a similar feature, but that didn't happen.

At present, there is still no particularly credible information that the iPhone 14 Pro will bring the screen display function. (MacRumors)

WeChat status supports NetEase Cloud Music one-click sharing

Recently, the NetEase Cloud Music app has been updated to version 8.7.51, which supports one-click sharing of songs to WeChat status.

The user selects a song in the NetEase Cloud Music app, clicks "Share" in the upper right corner, selects "Sync WeChat Status" and selects the cover. After editing the WeChat status in WeChat, it can be published.

Aduo Town Public [email protected]·China

Although public toilets can be installed in the main buildings of Ado Town Square, they may bring bad experience to tourists because of their hidden location and poor maintenance.

In the end, the toilet gained an "independent" corner.

The architect uses a courtyard to complete the connection with the main square, so that the privacy and identification of the bathroom are balanced.

At the same time, visitors suddenly enter a pothole with a refined industrial feel from the rough natural environment, and they will instantly feel a sense of contrast and surprise.

This enclosed yard is like a deep pit on the hillside, and visitors can only see the building after entering here. There are also two square courtyards embedded between the buildings to keep users’ vision and space well-lighted and ventilated.
