Apple Just Announced It’s Doing Something It Has Never Done Before, and It’s Great News for iPhone Owners
Apple is famously exacting about its fix arrangements. Truth be told, it as of late began cautioning clients not to have their iPhone batteries supplanted by outsider administration professionals who aren’t a piece of Apple’s affirmed program. The organization has additionally been a vocal rival of purported “ideal to fix” laws in states like California that try to give customers the lawful appropriate to have their gadgets fixed without holding fast to tech organization’s guarantee prerequisites.
Be that as it may, presently, the organization is accomplishing something it has never done: Apple reported it would enable autonomous fix organizations to acquire official Apple parts, apparatuses, and preparing materials so as to give out-of-guarantee administrations. Those areas basically need in any event one expert who has finished Apple’s free affirmation program to pursue the free program and get parts and devices at a similar cost as approved fix areas.
That implies that the areas won’t almost certainly give administration under AppleCare, however you’ll have the option to in any event pay to have your iPhone screen or battery supplanted without finding an Apple Authorized Service Provider, go to an Apple Store or a Best Buy (which as of late began giving Apple fix benefits through its Geek Squad). What’s more, when you do, you’ll have the significant serenity realizing that they’re ready to utilize veritable Apple parts.
“To better meet our customers’ needs, we’re making it easier for independent providers across the US to tap into the same resources as our Apple Authorized Service Provider network,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer.
“When a repair is needed, a customer should have confidence the repair is done right. We believe the safest and most reliable repair is one handled by a trained technician using genuine parts that have been properly engineered and rigorously tested,” Williams added.
That’s good news for iPhone users, especially because it appears Apple has taken notice that users weren’t happy with the way the company was handling non-certified iPhone battery replacements. At a minimum, Apple is paying attention and taking action to address customer concerns.
In fact, this announcement also comes just a day after Apple has announced that it will no longer listen to recorded voice snippets of Siri interactions unless users explicitly ‘opt-in.’ That move was geared to quell criticism of the company’s privacy policies after it was revealed that Apple was having contractors review a random sampling of user interactions, often exposing personal conversations and private information.
Which raises a fascinating point- – it’s alright to alter your perspective, regardless of whether you’re a mammoth like Apple. Because you have an arrangement, and on the grounds that it is by all accounts working for you, doesn’t naturally mean it’s the best approach. In some cases the shrewd activity is reexamine whether there’s something better you can accomplish for your clients.
Apple hasn’t been known for being very fix well disposed before, yet give the organization kudos for tuning in to its clients (no play on words proposed) and rolling out an improvement that really makes it simpler to utilize – and fix – its items.
Despite the fact that Apple’s is most likely an a lot greater organization than the one you run, there’s a decent exercise here: When it is difficult to concede you’re off-base and roll out an improvement, the correct thing is constantly whatever best serves your client and maintains your qualities. Making it simpler for clients to get their gadgets fixed without feeling like they’ve accomplished something incorrectly is consistently the best activity.
It may cost you a couple of dollars, or require surrendering a tad of control, however doubtlessly it improves the general client experience and that is in every case uplifting news.
Obi-Wan Kenobi and ‘The Mandalorian’ carry the Force to Disney+
Obi-Wan Kenobi will carry the Force to Disney+, which – alongside the main trailer for “The Mandalorian” – topped the studio’s introduction for its new gushing administration at the D23 Expo.
Ewan McGregor – who played the Jedi Knight in three “Star Wars” motion pictures – showed up in front of an audience with Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy to affirm that he will repeat the job, saying the contents were composed and that generation will occur one year from now.
Disney divulged a few undertakings as it shared extra insights concerning the new pursuit, which is booked to dispatch Nov. 12, giving a considerable contender in the spilling wars.
That includes “The Mandalorian,” the first live-action “Star Wars” series, which will make its debut when the service launches. Pedro Pascal will star as a bounty hunter, in the period after the fall of the Empire.Kennedy noted that the service would have access to all the movies, including the upcoming “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” putting “over 40 years of ‘Star Wars’ storytelling in one place.” Another series is in the works starring Diego Luna as the character he played in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”Not to be outdone, Marvel — another Disney property — announced a trio of new live-action series for the service, featuring the comic-book characters She-Hulk, Moon Knight and Ms. Marvel. That brings to eight the total number of shows that the comic-book powerhouse is producing for Disney+, including several previously announced titles featuring Avengers characters.
Disney is obviously wanting to make an enormous sprinkle in the gushing business sector, testing Netflix. Understanding that D23 pulls in Disney super-fans, the studio offered value motivations to get them to join.
Other new program declarations incorporated that Hilary Duff will retrurn in a recovery of “Lizzie McGuire,” another variant of the Disney Channel arrangement in which the character is set to commend her 30th birthday celebration.
The Disney+ menu also includes a live-action version of “Lady and the Tramp,” a series version of “High School Musical” and “Noelle,” a newly announced holiday movie with Bill Hader and Anna Kendrick.

Fans fear for Spider-Man’s future after Sony and Marvel fail to reach rights agreement
Spidey’s in danger! Sony (SNE) and Marvel have failed to reach an agreement on the character of Spider-Man — meaning he’ll be absent from the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the time being and leaving fans very worried.Sony has said it is “disappointed” that talks, aimed at extending a deal that allowed the superhero to appear in Marvel movies, fell through.The result is that Spider-Man, most recently played by Tom Holland, won’t be starring alongside Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk and other Marvel favorites any time soon.And the news prompted #SaveSpiderMan to start trending worldwide on Twitter, as devotees and Marvel stars reacted with anger over the split.Jeremy Renner, who plays Hawkeye in MCU films including the “Avengers” series and “Captain America: Civil War,” wrote on Instagram: “Hey @sonypictures we want Spider-Man back to @therealstanlee and @marvel please, thank you #congrats #spidermanrocks.”
So, who owns Spider-Man?
Spider-Man is one of Marvel’s most successful characters, having been created by the company’s legendary writer and editor Stan Lee in the 1960s.But Marvel Studios, the arm of the company that produces its movies, doesn’t own his film rights.That’s because Marvel put those up for sale in the 1980s, when superhero movies weren’t the surefire moneymakers they are today. The film rights to the character changed hands a few times before being bought by Sony in 1999, for a reported $7 million.”Spider-Man,” played in 2002 by Tobey Maguire, quickly became a huge box office success for Sony, and arguably prompted Marvel to enter the superhero flick game themselves.
So when the two companies agreed to share his rights in 2015, it felt like a homecoming — Spider-Man was finally able to appear in films in the Marvel Universe.Now played by Tom Holland, the character has appeared in five Marvel movies since that deal — most recently this year’s “Spider-Man: Far From Home.”
