Apple may put iPhone 6s &6s plus out of service.

Apple may put the iPhone 6S and below out of service, with iOS 13 already in the works according to a report, credited to Israeli website ‘The Verifier’.

The reports said while the new operating system (iOS13) for the Apple iPhones and iPads will bring with it a plethora of improvements and features, it will definitely spell doom for older hardware, especially in terms of hardware compatibility.

According to The Verifier, Apple’s iOS 13 could drop support for a few too many iPhones and iPads this time.

The report said that the iOS 13 will only cater to iPhones 7 and above, which leaves users with iPhone 6S/6S Plus (and below) stuck on iOS 12 for their lifetime.

If the report is true, the iPhone SE will also be suffering the same fate.

The report presently stands unconfirmed and should be taken with a pinch of salt. However, Apple is known to drop support for older hardware at every new iOS version release.

This will be the first time that Apple would drop support for a larger range of devices, if iOS 13 has hardware restrictions. Older devices will lose support because of its hardware compatibility. Newer apps and features require hardware that is compatible for its future use.

iOS 13 will be out in developer release at the WWDC 2019 that will be held in June this year, and will see a final public release in September 2018. Apple could force you to upgrade from your older iPhone to newer generation handsets by adopting this method. While it would be sad for those stuck on older devices, those on newer iPhones will definitely see improvements and the highest compatibility with future apps and features.

My first time in aeroplane,i thought i would die_Woli Agba

Popular comedian, Ayobami Ajewole, a.k.a Woli Agba, has just confessed that he had a real scare the first time he flew in an aeroplane. That was some years ago, when the Alfa Sule Dance Troupe gave him an opportunity to travel by air from Lagos to Abuja for the first time in his life.
He said, “It was really the first opportunity I had to travel out of the country.  We went to South Africa. It was also the first time I would enter a plane. In fact, I didn’t even know that one could travel by air from Lagos to Abuja.
“When the plane took off, I was smiling inside me. Suddenly, the pilot announced that the plane was in a sort of trouble. It was not funny. There and then, I told God that He didn’t bring me on the journey to waste my life. I thought I was going to die. Fortunately, nothing happened. The plane didn’t crash. I was so happy and relieved when we eventually arrived in South Africa.”
Woli Agba admitted that at a point in his career, he felt that he had been forgotten as an entertainer and there was nothing for him to fall back on. “People stopped talking about us at a point and I didn’t have anything to fall back on. I felt as if I had used up all my glory and there was nothing left for me. I was preparing to get married at the time. But from nowhere, things started working out for me again,” he said.
On his relationship with female fans, the humour merchant claimed that he had never received sexual advances from his female fans. “Ladies respect me whenever they see me. They call me Woli Agba and daddy. Even when I attended Olamide’s concert, they came to me and started calling me daddy. Ladies don’t see me as a young guy they can relate to or entice. I get direct messages on social media from ladies, but I value my marriage and my home comes first. I am too focused to be distracted.”

Three reasons why i am supporting Atiku_Olusegun Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, yesterday, articulated three reasons he is backing Atiku Abubakar for presidential contest, among which is the fact that he would not cede power to a caba
Obasanjo spoke at the Island Club as Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate enunciated his plans to get Nigeria working again.
The Island Club guest lecture addressed by Atiku had Senate President, Bukola Saraki; PDP national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, among others as guests.
Noting how he turned towards Atiku, despite his earlier castigation of his former deputy, Obasanjo said:  “Atiku has done three things which are absolutely imperative for a leader to be followed and believed.  First, know who you are and present yourself as you are – a human being in blood and flesh and susceptible to human mistakes and human frailties.
“Don’t cover up with sanctimonious veneer of bogus integrity, incorruptibility, uprightness, goodness and false figures and statistics, all of which are contrived to deceive, to cheat, to plunder and to destroy.
“Second, a leader must be honest to himself and to the people he serves, or he wants to serve. He must identify and acknowledge his situation, mistakes, shortcomings, and inadequacy; show remorse where and when he has erred, seek forgiveness and repent; and not passing the bulk or keep blaming others and fail to accept responsibility.
‘’Atiku accepts responsibility for his mistakes, shows remorse and seeks forgiveness from his political party and subsequently from Nigerians.
“Third, as a leader, you must understand the fundamentals of the problems you have to solve and be courageous, visionary and ready to reach out sufficiently to build a credible team of experts, knowledgeable men and women, concerned and interested citizens and non-citizens to work hard and tirelessly for solutions that will benefit all Nigerians and, indeed, Africans and humanity. From my personal knowledge of Atiku, he has these qualities.’’
Reiterating why Atiku would make a better president than Buhari, Obasanjo said:  “We now know that both Buhari and Atiku have issues and all of us as human beings have one issue or the other in different magnitude but judging both of them empirically, and for the task at hand, Atiku will perform much better than Buhari, and he will seek good and able people around the country and beyond and make use of them to achieve his mission and vision for the general good of Nigerians and the country.
“He will be a team leader but will not allow the seizure of his mandate by a cabal. A system to prevent impunity and ‘I can do what I like’ attitude and action must be put in place for all concerned.  It is more than check and balance; rather it is for the good of all stakeholders and equity-holders.”
The former President used the forum to dismiss insinuations that he did not trust Atiku as vice-president to preside over Federal Executive Council meetings.
Before he enunciated his economic plans to reinvigorate the economy, Atiku used the opportunity to again raise concerns about the state of Nigeria’s democracy.
“After unsuccessfully abusing the instruments of state to remove the leadership of the legislature, President Muhammadu Buhari has turned his sights on the judiciary.
“The action of unilaterally suspending the Chief Justice of Nigeria by President Buhari is unconstitutional. The constitution provides laid down rules for the suspension or removal of the CJN and this has not been followed. This is a grave attack on our constitution and the people of our country.
The candidate subsequently unfolded his plans which he encapsulated to include privatisation of the four refineries, liberalisation of the productive sector of the economy, and politics of inclusiveness that minimises the spirit of frustration that spurs citizens into rebellion.
Atiku particularly lamented that Ghana with 14% of Nigeria’s population was attracting more Foreign Direct Investments, FDIs, as he promised to enunciate policies that would spur growth and restore confidence in the economy by citizens and the international community.

Prof. Ogunyemi earlier told the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, that the leadership was still consulting with its members over offers made by the federal government.He said the government made some offers in the course of meetings with ASUU, which are still being deliberated on.

We are still consulting with our chapters across the country. There are promises that the government made and we are trying to consult with the various university chapters on the options before the union.

“By the time we are fully aware of what is left of our demands from what the government is offering, then we will know what steps to take, even as negotiations with the government continues.

From ASUU: Announcement: The @ASUUNGR has received the certificate of operation for Nigerian University Pension Management Company, NUPEMCO, from the National Pension Commission.

This is to announce that @AsoRock has met one of our major demands.
