The newest version of Apple’s mobile operating system is around the corner and it guarantees new options, faster data processing and a longer battery power, thanks to a iOS 9 update. These promises are more than enough to make people interested about Apples’ latest software platform. After analyzing the user claims saying that their application for iOS was depleting the phones’ battery power, Facebook has launched an upgrade to fix this annoying problem. Rather than presenting further details about these new improvements, the App Store’s notes remain unexplained, only promising a better interface and up-dates every month. But, Facebook’s specialists offered information regarding this subject in a short statement.
The first problem recognized was the CPU spin, a cycle that does not perform useful operations, in the application’s system that consumed all battery power because of these recurring tasks. Another issue is related to the way in which audio tests were managed. In a few cases, audio rendering remained open even after the videos ended, as if the sounds were playing in the background once the app was closed. Even if the app is not running, the battery power was consumed because the program remained open in the background.
Several implements have been added to the application and the upgrade can now be downloaded, but Facebook’s declaration seems to suggest that additional repairs are currently being developed. Regarding the CPU spin problem, they said that the edition launched nowadays has some patches which will improve the situation considerably. The bug responsible for the sounds playing in the background has been completely eliminated.
To clarify the problem, technicians added that these issues have not been caused by the users’ location options and repeated that the social network cannot access the mobile gadgets’ place without authorization within the application. Customers have to immediately upgrade their iOS Facebook application in order to remove random battery power strain. With the recently announced monthly improvements and new allusions to various potential problems, it is expected for Facebook to release future battery power developments.
As a side note, the first jailbreak program for Apple’s iOS 9 is now available, enabling users to obtain applications not offered in its App Store and create system changes that are not otherwise accepted by the company. Pangu 9, the newest jailbreak is an untethered tool, meaning that your system does not have to be connected to a PC for the crack to work. Instead, the program links an iPhone or another product from Apple to avoid Apple’s integrated protection software developed to stop jailbreaks, before allowing users to get their Cydia platform to get applications that are not available in the App Store.
