Apple says it will fix software problems blamed for making iPhone 15 models too hot to handle

Apple is blaming a software bug and other issues tied to popular apps such as Instagram and Uber for causing its recently released iPhone 15 models to heat up and spark complaints about becoming too hot to handle. The Cupertino, California, company said Saturday that it is working on an update to the iOS17 system that powers the iPhone 15 lineup to prevent the devices from becoming uncomfortably hot. In a short statement provided to The Associated Press, the company didn’t specify the timeline for its software fix. Apple says it’s also working with the apps that have been causing problems, saying Instagram modified its app for iPhones this week.

Germany’s government and Elon Musk spar on X over migrant rescue ships

BERLIN (AP) — Germany’s government has rebuked X owner Elon Musk after he criticized the recent work of migrant rescue ships that German humanitarian groups operate in the Mediterranean Sea. Musk late Friday shared a video that showed migrants and aid workers on a boat. The right-wing account that first put the content on X, formerly known as Twitter, praised the populist far-right Alternative for Germany party. “Is the German public aware of this?” Musk wrote in his repost. The German Federal Foreign Office replied to Musk directly, writing: “Yes. And it’s called saving lives.” Musk responded that he thinks the German-operated ships violated Italy’s sovereignty by bringing rescued migrants to Italian territory.

Group of homeless people sues Portland, Oregon, over new daytime camping ban

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A group of homeless people in Portland, Oregon, has filed a class action lawsuit challenging new restrictions the city placed on daytime camping in an attempt to address safety issues stemming from a crisis of people living on the streets. The Oregonian/OregonLive reports the lawsuit filed Friday in Multnomah County Circuit Court alleges the restrictions violate Oregon law and the state constitution because they subject people who are involuntarily without permanent shelter to unreasonable punishments for unavoidable activities including sleeping and staying dry. A spokesperson for Mayor Ted Wheeler declined to comment to the newspaper on the lawsuit but said the city plans to start enforcing the ordinance in the coming weeks.

Disney Plus announces crackdown on password sharing in Canada

NEW YORK (AP) — Password-sharing crackdowns are becoming more and more common in the streaming world today. And Disney Plus is following suit.

Powerball jackpot nears $1 billion after long drought of winners

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Another Powerball drawing, another chance at a jackpot that is inching toward a billion dollars. The estimated $960 million prize up for grabs Saturday night is the world’s ninth-largest lottery jackpot. That’s behind earlier Powerball and Mega Millions prizes that all topped a billion dollars. The prize has grown so large because there have been 30 consecutive drawings without a big winner. That streak is due to the game’s long odds. The $960 million prize is for a sole winner who chooses an annuity with annual payments over 30 years. Winners almost always take the cash option. For Saturday’s drawing, that would be over $441 million.

A second man is arrested over the felling in England of a much-loved tree near Hadrian’s Wall

LONDON (AP) — British police have made a second arrest over the “senseless” felling of a 300-year-old tree near the Roman landmark of Hadrian’s Wall in northeastern England. The arrest came hours after a 16-year-old was freed on bail. Northumbria Police said on Friday that a man in his 60s was arrested and is being questioned in custody. The 16-year-old was arrested on Thursday on suspicion of criminal damage after the tree was felled overnight. The tree was one of the main landmarks along Hadrian’s Wall. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site built nearly 2,000 years ago when Britain was part of the Roman Empire to guard its northwestern frontier.
