Apple fans spot blurry image of iPhone 12 on official website hours before launch

After months of anticipation, Apple will finally reveal its iPhone 12 series this evening.

The tech giant is hosting an event at 18:00 BST this evening, where it’s expected to launch four new iPhones, rumoured to be called the iPhone 12 Mini, the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

But just hours before the launch, an eagle-eyed fan has spotted what they believe are blurry images of the iPhone 12 on Apple’s official iCloud website.

Four new icons have been added to the iCloud website, labelled iPhone13,1, iPhone13,2, iPhone13,3, and the iPhone13,4.

For reference, last year’s iPhone 11 was labelled on the iCloud website as ‘iPhone12,1’.

Twitter user @AppleSWUpdates said: “Have you ever noticed those images in the iCloud or the Apple ID website?

“Apple has uploaded 4 images for the iPhone13,1 13,2 13,3 and 13,4. No … iPhone uses those identifiers.”

Unfortunately, it remains unclear how @AppleSWUpdates found the icons, although it’s likely they were hidden in the code of Apple’s website.

Thankfully, there’s not long to find out what Apple has in store for us.

Its ‘Hi, Speed’ event will begin at 18:00 tonight, where Apple is likely to treat us to a host of new products.

Mirror Online will be covering tonight’s event live, so make sure you check in at 18:00 for all the latest Apple news!

CBI pulls Hathras gang-rape case complaint from website within hours of posting

Hours after putting the Hathras rape case FIR on its website, the CBI removed it sensing possible violation of a Supreme Court order that FIRs in cases of rape and sexual assault, including those against minors, should not be put in public domain by police.

The agency, however, did not retract or remove its media statement from the website.

The FIR withheld the name of the Hathras victim, concealed using a whitening ink, but it was decided to withdraw it from public domain to avoid unnecessary controversy, sources said.

In December, 2018, a Supreme Court bench headed by Justice Madan B Lokur directed the print and electronic media to not reveal the identity of victims of rape and sexual assault “even in a remote manner”.

The top court said FIRs in cases of rape and sexual assault, including those against minors, should not be put in public domain by police.

The issue had cropped up when the court was hearing a batch of petitions filed after the rape and murder of a paramedic student on December 16, 2012, in New Delhi to support the initiatives on women’s safety across the country.

The CBI took over the investigation from UP police into alleged gangrape and murder of a Dalit woman in a village in Hathras district of Uttar Pradesh on September 14 after registering an FIR early Sunday under IPC sections related to gang rape and murder among others, and Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, officials said.

It assigned the case to its Ghaziabad unit with a special team to investigate the crime, they said.

The 19-year old woman succumbed to injuries at a Delhi hospital on September 29, which was followed by a hushed up cremation at night allegedly forced by the district administration. The UP

The Three mobile network went down on Wednesday, leaving thousands of customers unable to get online or make phone calls for up to two hours.

First reports of a fault with the network were submitted to the DownDetector website at about 08:30 BST, with a flood of complaints coming in by 09:15 BST. 

The service had been restored by about 11:00 BST, with Three apologising to customers ‘for any inconvenience caused by the issue’.

Three didn’t give any details of what caused the outage but said about 10 per cent of customers had data issues and 19 per cent had issues with dropped calls.

The company claims the outage only lasted for 45 minutes, but some customers were still experiencing issues more than two hours after it first started. 

The outage came as the government encourages people to return to working from home if they can, after a dramatic spike in coronavirus infections. 

Users from across the country took to Twitter to express concern over the lack of connection, with many tweeting Three Support to ask about the outage.

Tom Penny tweeted: ‘No service in Leicestershire here for me or my wife, or Derby according to Twitter. Smells of a national outage but Three have not recognised any issues.’ 

Oliver Brett tweeted: ‘Vast swathes of north London with ZERO network coverage from @ThreeUK – absolute disgraceful when people are forced to work from home. Will be claiming for lost income and

Lakewood Public Library addressing computer access, adding Saturday hours

LAKEWOOD, Ohio — More than two months after reopening its doors and offering in-person services at its Main Library and Madison Branch, Lakewood Public Library has yet to allow members back into its technology center located at the Detroit Avenue branch.

That decision has caused quite a bit of vocal derision from patrons desperate for computer access.

“Safety is our biggest priority and anybody who has ever been in the technology center room knows that it’s not very large and air ventilation is a bit of a problem,” Lakewood Public Library Public Services Librarian Andrea Fisher said. “Some suggested we could have fans blowing.

“We consulted with the Cleveland Clinic, which said that’s one of the worst things we could do. As far as spacing out computers, that’s hard to do because of the aisles and the fact they’re hardwired into the desks, which means we can’t move them to another room.”

With eight-foot high ceilings, the roughly 1,000-square-foot technology center includes more than 50 computers, which prove quite popular. This is also problematic.

“Many of our patrons who come in to use the computer need a lot of help,” Fisher said. “It puts us in an uncomfortable position because of the whole issue of proximity (related to social distancing). So it’s a tough decision. It’s a tough thing.

“We’re all sick of COVID, its impact on our lives and how we can’t do things that we’d like to do. A lot of the criticism is emotional, and I totally get that. We’re not trying to keep anyone away. The decision was not an easy one to arrive at by any stretch. It’s something we feel badly about every day.”

A solution may be on the horizon
