University researchers create app to extend Android battery life by up to 25 percent

Researchers at the University of Waterloo have figured out a way for Android multitaskers to get 25 percent more time out of a battery charge, though the particular scenario that takes advantage of this isn't a common one. And as Engadget reports, this battery saving has a few caveats.
                                                extend Android battery life by up to 25 percent
If you're one of the chosen few to have Android 9 Pie running on your phone right now, then you have split-screen support, which is where Waterloo's "MultiDroid" app comes into play, although it has yet to be released to the public. In a nutshell, the app works by dimming the side of the screen that you're not interacting with at that moment.

As any mobile geek can tell you, simply having the screen on will be one of the biggest drains on your battery, second only to rendering 3D or VR, which remains challenging even for desktop and laptop PCs. According to the university, being able to selectively dim areas of the screen can extend your battery charge by 10 to 25 percent.

Note: This battery-saving technique only works with OLED screens, which are customarily reserved for expensive phone models.

Interested readers can check out the university's full report at the IEEE Access website.

But what are the odds that you'll get Android Pie?

While Android 9 is currently only available on Google's Pixel phones and the Essential PH-1, dozens of other devices are scheduled to be updated. Motorola currently leads the pack with eight, Sony is purportedly readying six phones, and Samsung has committed to Pie updates for its high-end models like the Galaxy S9 and Note 9.

Despite Google's recent inroads with Motorola and Sony, it continues to struggle overall with getting manufacturers and mobile network carriers to update older phones and launch new devices with the latest version of their operating system.

Android Oreo took eight months to come to the Galaxy Note 8, and one year to come to the Galaxy S8. Samsung has not committed to release dates for Android Pie updates on any of their devices. The Galaxy Note 9 came out earlier this month sporting 8.1 Oreo, just as 9.0 Pie was reaching store shelves.

According to Google's own statistics, only 12 percent of their phones are running Android Oreo, which came out last year; 30 percent of phones are still on the version before that, and 24 percent are still on Marshmallow, which was released to the general public nearly three years ago.

For reference, Apple states that over 80 percent of its users are on iOS 11, and only 14 percent remain on iOS 10. (iOS 12 is currently available in a public beta; a final version is expected next month.) Granted, Apple has far fewer devices to deal with, and it makes a lot of its own chips, so it's much less reliant on third parties for software updates. But the contrast remains stark.

In Summary:
Researchers at the University of Waterloo have designed an app that can extend your battery charge by up to 25 percent, although it currently only works with Android Pie and OLED screens.
Only a small handful of phones are currently running Android Pie, as Google continues to struggle with getting manufacturers and mobile network carriers to update older phones and launch new devices with the latest version of their operating system.

WhatsApp to Offer Unlimited Back-up Storage With Google Drive

Starting November 12, 2018, WhatsApp backups will no longer count towards the Google Drive storage quota. Furthermore, WhatsApp backups that haven't been updated in more than one year will be automatically removed from Google Drive storage. Also, all WhatsApp backups that haven’t been updated in more than one year will be automatically removed from Google Drive storage, so make sure you manually back up your WhatsApp data by November 12 if you don’t want to lose it.
                                            WhatsApp to Offer Unlimited Back-up Storage
You can back up your chats and media to Google Drive, so if you change Android phones or get a new one, your chats and media are transferable. We recommend connecting your phone to Wi-Fi prior to backing up your chats via Google Drive, as backup files can vary in size and consume mobile data, causing additional charges.

Minimum requirements

In order to use Google Drive backup, you need to have:

A Google account activated on your phone
Google Play services installed on your phone
Note: Google Play services are only available for Android 2.3.4 and higher.
Enough free space on your phone to create the backup

Creating a Google Drive backup

How to create a Google Drive backup:
Open WhatsApp.
Tap Menu > Settings > Chats > Chat backup.
Tap Back up to Google Drive and select a backup frequency other than Never.
Select a Google account that you'll back up your chat history to. If you don't have a Google account, tap Add account when prompted and enter your login credentials. Please remember the Google account you're using for the backup.
Tap Back up over to choose the network you wish to use for backup. Please note that backing up over a cellular data network might result in additional data charges.
You can also manually back up your chats to Google Drive at any time:
Open WhatsApp.
Tap Menu > Settings > Chats > Chat backup.
Tap BACK UP to begin your Google Drive backup. This process might take a few minutes.
Note: Depending on the size of the chat, the first complete backup could take a while. We recommend that you connect your phone to a power source. However, subsequent backups are incremental, thus not requiring a completely new backup of all your data every time.

Important: Media and messages you back up aren't protected by WhatsApp end-to-end encryption while in Google Drive.


Restoring from a Google Drive backup

In order to successfully restore a Google Drive backup, you need to use the same phone number and Google account used to create the backup. To restore your backup:

Make sure the same Google account that was used to perform the backup has been added to your phone.
Uninstall and reinstall WhatsApp.
After verifying your phone number, you'll be prompted to restore your chats and media from Google Drive. Tap RESTORE.
After the restoration process is complete, tap NEXT and your chats will be displayed once initialization is complete.
After restoring your chats, WhatsApp will begin restoring your media files.
Note: If you're installing WhatsApp without any prior backups from Google Drive, WhatsApp will automatically restore from your local backup file. Learn more in our FAQ on restoring chat history.


Configuring your Google Drive backup settings

To change the frequency of your Google Drive backup:
Open WhatsApp.
Tap Menu > Settings > Chats > Chat backup.
Tap Back up to Google Drive.
Set the backup frequency to your liking.
To change which account you want to back up your chat history to:
Open WhatsApp.
Tap Menu > Settings > Chats > Chat backup.
Tap Account and select the account you wish to back up your chat history to.
Note: If you change your Google account, you won't be able to access your backups that are linked to a different Google account.

To change the connection you wish to use for backup:

Open WhatsApp.
Tap Menu > Settings > Chats > Chat backup.
Tap Back up over and select the network you wish to use for backup.

Deleting your backup file from your Google account
You can remove WhatsApp data from your Google Drive. To do so:


Go to the Google Drive website and log in to your Google account.

If you're accessing the Google Drive website from your phone, you'll have to tap the Menu icon in the top left corner and then tap Desktop Version.
Click the Gear icon in the top right corner > Settings > Manage Apps.
Scroll until you find WhatsApp in the list. Please note it might take several minutes for WhatsApp to appear.
After you find WhatsApp in the list, wait until “Hidden app data” size comes up. This might also take several minutes.
Click OPTIONS > Delete hidden app data > DELETE.

Over 90GB worth of files accessed by Australian teenager who hacked Apple’s network multiple times

Court documents reveal that a 16-year-old hacker from Australia allegedly broke into tech giant Apple’s computer systems and may have downloaded internal files.
                                                 90GB worth of files accessed by Australian teenager
The Age newspaper reports that the teenager’s actions were motivated by an admiration for the company, and that the boy kept the stolen files in a folder entitled “hacky hack hack.” The teen reportedly downloaded over 95 gigabytes of data and accessed customer accounts without exposing his identity.

The Australian Federal Police searched the teen’s home last year, the court documents state, which produced two laptops, a mobile phone and a hard drive that matched the intrusion reported by Apple. The reports also reveal that the boy boasted about his activities on the encrypted messaging app, WhatsApp.

“Two Apple laptops were seized and the serial numbers matched the serial numbers of the devices which accessed the internal systems,” a prosecutor said. “A mobile phone and hard drive were also seized and the IP address … matched the intrusions into the organisation. The purpose was to connect remotely to the company’s internal systems.”

The Age goes on to report that the investigation began when Apple became aware of the intrusion and contacted the FBI, who passed the case over to the Australian Federal Police.

Apple spoke out Friday to reassure users that no customer data was compromised in the breach.

“At Apple, we vigilantly protect our networks and have dedicated teams of information security professionals that work to detect and respond to threats,” a company spokesman told Guardian Australia in a statement.

“In this case, our teams discovered the unauthorized access, contained it, and reported the incident to law enforcement. We regard the data security of our users as one of our greatest responsibilities and want to assure our customers that at no point during this incident was their personal data compromised.”

The teenager later told police that he’d dreamed of one day becoming an Apple employee. The boy’s defence attorney said at one point that his client had become so well known in the international hacking community that exposing the details of the case could expose him to risk.

Dr. Suelette Dreyfus, a privacy expert with the University of Melbourne, told Guardian Australia that a punitive sentence would be “a waste of that potential.”

“I have researched a number of teen hacker cases internationally. Almost all these teens grew out of the technology boundary-pushing of their youth, and then went on to live useful lives and contributing to society. Putting them in prison is often a waste of that potential.

“Young people often make mistakes when they are exploring and rule-breaking especially online – including boasting about their exploits. It’s not right, but for tech teens, it can be a part of growing up … there’s usually a really worried teen and family at the end of this sort of court case,” Dreyfus explained.

The boy, whose name could not be made public because he is a juvenile offender, will be sentenced on Sept. 20.

Apple recently became the world’s most valuable company, valued at over $1 trillion.
