Apple Officially Releases iOS 15.2.1 Update

Technology-Portfolio.Net - Apple has released software updates for iOS 15.2.1 and iPadOS 15.2.1, for iPhone and iPad devices.

Through this update, Apple brings a number of fixes to address the loopholes and bugs found in iOS 15.2. One of them is a bug fix where photos from iCloud Link fail to load when sent via message.

iCloud Link itself is a service that allows users to share photos and videos via iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and the iCloud.com site.

This service is temporary, so all photos shared via iCloud Link will be automatically deleted after 30 days.

After successfully saved in iCloud Link, users can copy the link ( link ) of the photo or video to be shared via messages in Messages or Mail services. However, due to a bug , iOS users who receive photos via a link in the Messages service are often unable to load the photo in question.

This is of course very annoying because users can't see photos included in short messages sent by other people.

iOS 15.2.1 Update

This iOS 15.2.1 also addresses a bug found in the HomeKit protocol. The bug is a loophole that can make an iPhone or iPad not work.

Through the loophole, a malicious individual could change the name of a HomeKit-compatible device to more than 500,000 characters. This can cause the device to malfunction.

Other fixes focus on third-party CarPlay app services that sometimes struggle to respond to user input.

The presence of this bug seems quite annoying, considering the high reports from iPhone users who complain of similar problems.

Usually, iOS updates can be obtained automatically. This is indicated by the appearance of a special notification on the device But if you don't get it, users can update the system manually.

To do this, users can access the Settings menu > General > Software update.

The iOS 15.2.1 update is about 970 MB in size.

Devices from Apple that are already compatible in the iOS 15.2.1 list are revealed in the sector on the iPhone 13 starting from iPhone 13 Pro Max, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XS, iPhone 11, iPhone XR, iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 7, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone SE (Gen 2), iPhone SE (1st Gen), iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPod touch (Gen 7).

While tablet devices will be available on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro (Gen 5, Gen 4, Gen 3, Gen 2, Gen 1), iPad Pro 11 inch (Gen 3, Gen 2, Gen 1), iPad Pro 10.5 inch, iPad Pro 9.7 inch, iPad (Gen 5, Gen 6, Gen 7, Gen 8, Gen 9), iPad Air (Gen 2, Gen 3, Gen 4), iPad mini (Gen 4, Gen 5, Gen 6).

Instagram Tries Edit Grid Feature to Create A More Aesthetic Feed

Technology-Portfolio.Net - Instagram is testing a new feature called Edit Grid. This feature will be very useful for Instagram users who want to have an aesthetic profile feed.

Currently this feature is still in the development stage. But developer and leaker Alessandro Paluzzi managed to dig into it to show how this feature looks and works before it is rolled out.

In a tweet on his Twitter account, Paluzzzi shared two screenshots showing this feature. The first screenshot shows the edit profile page showing a new option called Edit Grid.

If the user selects this option, they can change the order of the photos on the profile page. Instead of bothering to delete or archive photos, users can simply drag-and-drop the photos they want to move to make their profiles look neater and more aesthetic, as quoted from XDA Developers, Thursday (13/1/2022).

Currently, Instagram has not shared information about this new feature. But chances are they will reveal more information once this feature is ready to roll out.

As it is still in development stage, this feature will be rolled out to beta testers first before it is released to all users. It is also possible that this feature will be canceled for one reason or another.

In addition to the edit grid feature, Instagram is also testing three ways to sort content in the main feed, namely by upload time chronology, based on a proposed algorithm, and based on the order of favorite accounts. These three new feed views will roll out in the second half of 2022.

Getting To Know More About and Benefits Of VoIP Business Phone System

Technology-Portfolio.Net - VoIP technology is one of the results of the development of the latest technology today. This technology will make it easier for you to communicate. To help you take advantage of this technology, you can read detailed reviews and benefits of VoIP technology for the communication process.

Knowing IP Phone or VoIP Technology
VoIP technology is the latest modern communication technology. VoIP is Voice Over Internet Protocol which is often referred to as IP telephone or digital phone. This technology is voice that will be sent and converted into data first and then sent to the recipient via the internet network. This VoIP technology will change the voice with the help of internet protocol. VoIP has been implemented in various types of open source standards and procedures with various benefits for communicating.

VoIP This is different from standard telephones that use the traditional public telephone network (PSTN).

This digital IP-based telephone service uses control protocols such as Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), Skinny Client Control Protocol (SCCP) or various other proprietary protocols.

The Benefits of Using VoIP Technology
VoIP-based telephone technology offers Internet connection-based telephone technology with various advantages compared to the old conventional system. There are some tangible benefits when you use VoIP technology to communicate.

Easy to Install and Configure
One of the benefits of using VoIP technology is the ease of installation of this technology. Installation of this technology is quite easy and simple for those of you who have knowledge of mediocre technology. Instead of using a landline, you can install this technology application. You can set it up as easily as an IP phone and it's simple to configure. After that, you can immediately take advantage of it.

Has Affordable Call and Telephone Costs
Another benefit of using VoIP technology is that the cost of calls and telephone calls is quite affordable with the installation of IP Phone technology. You can save costs when using this VoIP technology service. Long distance calls with this technology are much lower than those of landlines. You can even save on monthly bills from your landline after you use this technology. This benefit is very real felt by many people.

Can Carry Numbers Easily
Do you want to travel? When you want to go, of course, a lot of things to bring including your phone with VoIP technology. Now you don't have to be afraid of not being able to communicate easily without the help of this technology because this VoIP phone system makes it easy for you to access the portal website easily and reinstall the system whenever you want. This has a great impact on your travel schedule because the number from this technology system can be carried with you when you travel. Calls with this phone number can be diverted wherever you go because this system is already cloud-based so it is more flexible.

Clear Sound Quality
Not only practical, this VoIP technology also steals your attention with other benefits. You can make calls or communicate with internet-based technology with a smooth and clear voice. Voice quality with VoIP technology is very good even though the distance is quite far. You are like talking to the person in front of you or beside you.

Free of Charge
This technology has good scalability. This internet calling service is very scalable, making it easier for you to estimate. You can use a different number when using this technology. This technology-based communication is free of charge so you save much more.

Easy to Manage and Organize
Another benefit is that it makes it easier for you to manage and manage VoIP technology in your communication system. All receipts of incoming and outgoing calls will be properly recorded and managed on the computer.

Offering Various Facilities
In addition, this technology also offers various facilities for this internet-based telephone. The first facility is speed dial, which makes it easy for you to make calls without pressing the number or numbers of the recipient. Limit duration is useful for limiting your phone time. Limit destination is also a good feature to limit the number of your phone destination. Meanwhile, the time limit is useful for giving a limit on how long the internet phone usage can be. The last facility is multi-password which is useful for managing phone users by password.

Easy to Communicate
The last benefit of VoIP technology is that it makes it easier for you to communicate with anyone and anywhere. Communication can be done both in big cities, small towns, or in villages. Even communication can be done between continents and countries. Surely you will feel much closer to your friends, family, and girlfriends who are far away.

Components and Software
VoIP Phone consists of hardware and software components. The software requires standard networking components such as a TCP/IP network stack, client implementations for DHCP, and the Domain Name System (DNS). In addition, VoIP signaling protocol stacks, such as for Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), H.323, Skinny Client Control Protocol (Cisco), and Skype, are required. For media flow, Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) is used in most VoIP systems. For voice and media encoding, various encodings are available, such as for audio: G.711 , GSM , iLBC, Speex , G.729 , G.722 , G.722.2 (AMR-WB), other audio codecs, and for H video. 263 , H.263 + , H.264 . The user interface software controls the operation of the hardware components, and can respond to user actions with messages to the display screen.

STUN Client
To enable VoIP communication, SIP/RTP packets must be used and STUN client will be a key component for VoIP communication with SIP/RTP packet management. A Session Traversal Utility for NAT (STUN) clients is used on some SIP based VoIP phones as a firewall on network interfaces sometimes blocking SIP/RTP packets. Some special mechanism is required in this case to enable SIP packet routing from one network to another. STUN is used in some sip phones to enable SIP/RTP packets across the boundary of two different IP networks. A packet becomes unroutable between two sip elements if one network uses a private IP address range and the other is in a public IP address range. Stun is a mechanism to activate this border traversal. There are alternative mechanisms for NAT traversal, STUN is just one of them. STUN or any other NAT traversal mechanism is not required when two connected SIP phones can be routed to each other and there is no firewall in between.

DHCP Client
DHCP client software simplifies device connection to IP networks. The software automatically configures the network parameters and VoIP services.

How VoIP Phone System Technology Works
VoIP technology is able to convert various analog voices received directly from the speakers on the computer into data. Then, the data packet will continue the voice through the router with the help of the internet network to be received by the recipient of the call. The transmission of the signal to this destination must be done digitally, i.e. the voice is converted into digital data before being sent. Those are some things about Phone or VoIP technology.

Twitter Prepares New Feature To Hide Old Tweets

Technology-Portfolio.Net - Twitter is planning to prepare a new feature to give users more privacy options. This option offers to hide old tweets so that they are not visible to other users after a certain amount of time.

Twitter also includes options that allow users to limit who can see the tweets the user likes, remove themselves from conversations, and let users delete followers without blocking them outright.

The new feature is part of a series of social privacy changes that aim to make users more comfortable engaging on Twitter.

Windows 11 Cannot Be Installed on Incompatible PC

Windows 11 Cannot Be Installed on Incompatible PC

Technology-Portfolio.Net - When Microsoft announced Windows 11 many users were confused because their Windows 10 device was not compatible to be upgraded to the latest operating system. Now Microsoft confirms that users will not be able to install Windows 11 on non-standard PCs.

In a question and answer session at the Microsoft community forum, Microsoft Program Manager Aria Carley said the terms and conditions of PC specifications that can run Windows 11 will remain in effect to ensure the security of devices running by users.

"We know it sucks that some devices are not eligible for Windows 11," Carley said as quoted from BGR, Thursday (29/7/2021).

"But the thing to remember is that the reason we're doing it is to keep devices more productive, have better experiences and better security than ever before to keep them protected in this new workforce."

As is known, Windows 10 users complain that their devices are not compatible with Windows 11 because they do not have or have not activated the TPM 2.0 module.

Microsoft also initially wrote that the minimum specifications for PCs that support Windows 11 are those running the eighth generation Intel processors or the second generation AMD Ryzen processors. This provision certainly makes many users of Windows devices with older processors feel left out.

Carley also said that users don't have to bother checking whether their devices are eligible for an upgrade to Windows 11 or not. Later Windows itself will check automatically, and if the device does not meet the requirements then the system will not offer Windows 11 installation.

He stressed that Microsoft will not allow users who insist on installing Windows 11 on incompatible devices by using shortcuts, for example by modifying group policies.

"Group policy will not allow you to circumvent the hardware rules for Windows 11. We will still block you from updating your device to an unsupported state because we want to make sure your device remains supported and secure," explains Carley.

Windows 11 will roll out for free over the holiday season to eligible Windows 10 users. Had caused controversy, Microsoft currently has not provided another update on the device specification requirements that must be met to install Windows 11.

It is also possible that advanced users will find a way to install Windows 11 on incompatible devices. But don't just look for Windows 11 installation files on the internet because there are fake files that contain malware.

Instagram Will Present Photo Posting Feature From Desktop
Technology-Portfolio.Net - Instagram has provided features for posting photos and videos only through the application, but not using the web or desktop versions. But in the end, this feature will be presented.

Based on the leaks that appear, later users of the Instagram desktop application will be able to post photos.

This news came from leaker Alessandro Paluzzi, who said that Instagram is expected to allow users to post photos from the desktop.

In a screenshot shared by the Twitter account @ alex193a on May 14, users will be able to drag and drop images from a computer, crop images, add filters, edit and almost anything else that can be found on mobile devices when uploading photos.

"Instagram is working on the ability to create posts from a desktop website," wrote the leaker.

Paluzzi added that the Instagram desktop feature is currently only being tested internally so not all users can use it.

Unfortunately, this feature does not yet support the ability to take pictures from the camera on the computer directly. The same limitation applies to IGTV videos.

Instagram is currently more focused on the Instagram mobile application which can be downloaded on Android or iOS. However, the desktop web interface may be useful for some users who prefer to view images and videos on a larger screen.

It is still unknown whether Instagram also allows users to upload other types of content, such as Stories or Reels.

Unfortunately, it is not known how long Instagram will open the feature for posting photos from this desktop.
