Apple is known as one of the most secretive technology companies out there, oftentimes hiding breakthroughs and advances inside of its walls. But that attitude might soon change, albeit to a small extent, as the iPhone-maker is promising to publish some of its artificial intelligence research.
It is a couple of weeks since Apple announced a battery replacement program for iPhone 6s handsets suffering with random shutdown issue. At the time, the company gave nothing away about what the root cause of the problem was, but now it has opened up.
In a posting on its Chinese website, Apple confirms that the shutdown problems were indeed related to a battery problem. Specifically, the company explains that it was "a battery component that was exposed to controlled ambient air longer than it should have been".
Is Apple set to Wow the world with a radical new iPhone? A rash of leaks from a variety of credible sources strongly suggest so, and they promise a level of reinvention we haven’t seen from Apple in several years.
