  Apple said it will stop using material from mines in its iPhones — but it can't do it yet (AAPL) Apple has pledged to make iPhones out of entirely recycled materials in the future, although it's not quite there yet.Vice News reported on Wednesday that Apple has publicly announced that it wants to stop using materials sourced from mines.The announcement was made in Apple's 2017 environmental responsibility report, which tracks the company's green credentials."We believe our goal should be a closed-loop supply chain, where products are built using only renewable resources or recycled material," the report said.

To be sure, it’s not surprising that Apple has decreed that certain devices won’t get the update . With each new version of iOS or Mac OS , they company usually leaves some devices out in the cold .

Apple is currently beta testing the next reiteration of iOS, but it seems the upcoming version 10.3.2 will never make it some older iPhone models.

While the Cupertino behemoth was already expected to drop support for 32-bit apps with the upcoming release of iOS 11, it seems the company might begin to phase out several 32-bit iPhone models mid-cycle starting with version 10.3.2, Forbes reports.

While Apple has previously rolled out support for 32-bit phones with delays, the publication states iOS 10.3.2 won’t follow the path of limited releases – like version 10.0.3 which initially landed exclusively on iPhone 7 and 7 Plus – and will instead drop support for a slew of devices.

Apple Music For Android Has A New Update

  Apple Music For Android Has A New Update Apple Music for Android devices has been updated with a revamped design and many more changes.On Tuesday, Apple released Apple Music 2.0 on the Google Play Store. The new version, which requires Android 4.3 and up to run, comes with an all-new design that melds clarity and simplicity together. The clean look makes Apple Music easier to navigate. The large, bold headers do not only enhance the interface stylistically, they also help in ensuring that the app provides users with a simplified experience.

Apple leads the world in innovation with iPhone , iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, iOS , macOS , watchOS and more. Special Edition. iPhone 7. Now in. Product Red. Apple Watch Series 2. Live a better day. iPad. Flat- out fun. Introducing Clips. Say it with video.

Thankfully Apple can roll out a security fix in an iOS update in a very short period of time - if this Nevertheless that should not distract from the fact that the previously 'impregnable' software running on millions of iPhones , iPads and iPod Touch devices around the world have been left exposed.

According to the report, Apple will no longer deliver updates to iPhone 5 and 5C – though the 5S will make the cut. The reason for this is that – unlike the 5 and the 5C – the 5S was built on 64-bit architecture.

Taking into account the iPhone 5 and 5C series date back to 2013, it is hardly surprising Apple is pulling the plug on them. By comparison, Google promises only two years of software updates for its top-notch Pixel and Pixel XL handsets.

Apple never disclosed how many 5Cs it sold, but it shipped more than 90 million units of the iPhone 5, which means iOS 10.3.2 will likely leave millions of handsets out in the cold.
