    How to Disable Windows 10 Automatic Updates 

    Microsoft has made it mandatory for Windows 10 users to update their computer. The company has set the new operating system to automatically receive new updates by default. Windows 10 Pro users have an option to delay the updates they receive, but if you are on Windows 10 Home, there isn’t much you can do about it.

    Interestingly, there is a simple option in Wi-Fi settings, which if enabled, stops your Windows 10 computer from downloading automatic updates. To do that, search for Change Wi-Fi settings in Start Menu or Cortana. Click Advanced Options, and enable the toggle below Set as metered connection.

    How to Disable or Enable Automatic App Updates on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch 

    Highlights Automatic app updates first appeared in iOS 7 You can disable auto-update, or allow them on mobile data too iOS doesn’t allow auto-updates for selective apps

    As smartphone owners, we live in the age of apps where there’s truly an app for any scenario you can think of. That also means most of us have more apps we can keep track of. Thankfully, Apple added automatic app updates to iOS over three years ago, and had it enabled by default, so you wouldn’t have to manually open the App Store, and hit

    How to Enable or Disable Automatic Updates on Mac 

    Highlights You can disable automatic app and OS updates on Mac It’s possible to enable automatic downloads and update manually This helps if you find updates interrupting your workflow

    These days enabling automatic updates has become the norm on practically every operating system. This has its benefits – you don’t have to manually download updates to apps and all critical security patches are downloaded automatically to your phone or computer.

    Enabling automatic updates on a smartphone doesn’t really bother most people. Sometimes apps may start crashing after updates but by and large, apps continue to work as expected after updates. You’re also unlikely to be using a bunch of apps at the same time. However, that’s not true on a Mac or a PC.

    At any point we’ve got at least eight apps open. Enabling automatic updates is convenient but not the best idea because apps have to be closed before installation can begin. That prompt tends to interrupt our workflow and we’d rather not deal with it in the middle of the work day.

    First up, let’s figure out .

    Click the Apple logo on the top left and open System Preferences. Click on App Store. Now you’ll see a bunch of options dealing with automatic updates on macOS. To disable automatic updates, click on the tick mark next to Automatically check for updates to uncheck it, which is checked by default. To enable automatic updates, click the empty box next to Automatically check for updates. You’ll see a tick mark in the box now.

    How to Create, Edit, Delete WhatsApp Status Updates 

    Highlights You can now add photos or videos as WhatsApp Status updates You can upload multiple images or clips as updates The updates all disappear after 24 hours

    When WhatsApp turned eight in February, it has launched a new feature that seems to be pointing to a future where the app moves away from text messages, and relies much more heavily on photos and short videos – the ephemeral status update. This newest feature from the Facebook owned messaging company bears more than a passing resemblance to social rival Snapchat, and the update hasn’t just added a new tab for the status in the menu on top of your screen, but also a camera button right in the middle of things, which can be used to update your status, or a contact, or group. It’s an exciting change, and it’s really straightforward too, but in case you have any doubts about how to use the feature, here’s what you need to know about the revamped WhatsApp Status updates.

    What happened to my old text WhatsApp status?

    You mean the line which most people completely ignored, leaving it on the default “Hi there, I’m using WhatsApp”? Well, that’s gone. Put the past behind you. According to some people the old text status is still visible, but it’s gone for the most of us, so try restarting the app if you’re still seeing the old status. Of course, the user backlash over the beloved text status made the company bring it back in March.

    How can I set a photo or video as my WhatsApp status?

    There are a couple of different ways to create a WhatsApp status you can do. Let’s look at them.

    How to create a WhatsApp Status using the Status option:

    Open WhatsApp. Tap on Status. Tap on My Status. If you’ve already got a status, tap the little circle with a

    Windows 10 Updates Are Failing on Some PCs, Leaving Them at Risk 

    Highlights PCs based on Intel’s ‘Clover Trail’ Atom CPUs are affected The current Windows 10 Anniversary Update is supported till early 2018 Many affected devices were sold with Windows 8 or 8.1

    Owners of computers based on Intel’s Clover Trail generation of Atom processors, released between late 2012 and mid-2013, are reportedly finding that they are unable to install the Windows 10 Creators’ Update, also known as Windows 10 v1703. Users have reported seeing a message saying “Windows 10 is no longer supported on this PC” when trying to complete the Windows 10 update process. An error code displayed with the message points users to a note that suggests that software incompatibility is the reason that the automated process fails.

    The devices affected include low-cost laptops, tablets and convertible 2-in-1s. There are four consumer Clover Trail CPUs; the Intel Atom Z2760, Z2520, Z2560 and Z2580. It is likely that a huge number of Clover Trail-based PCs from all the world’s major manufacturers have been sold. Many were originally shipped with Windows 8 or 8.1, but users were prompted to upgrade to Windows 10 for free when it was released – with Microsoft promoting the upgrade heavily.

    Neither Microsoft nor Intel has not yet published any information for affected users. However, an Acer support page surfaced by ZDNet.com seems to indicate that users were previously able to install the update but reported that text and icons were not showing up correctly on screen, or were appearing as solid blocks or bars. The Acer page goes on to state that Microsoft is working to create compatible drivers to address this problem, which indicates that the block might not be permanent.

    This is the first known instance of old hardware becoming ineligible for a major Windows 10 refresh. Instead of a known end date for feature and security updates, Microsoft now promises to support Windows 10 for free in perpetuity, so long as a device is within its “lifetime”. However, that definition is vague, and depends on hardware compatibility, driver availability and OEMs’ support periods.

    It is unclear whether affected Clover Trail PCs running the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, which is as of now the latest supported version, will be eligible for security patches or other critical Windows updates. Microsoft officially supports each major Windows 10 release for 18 months, which means that the Anniversary Update falls outside this period in early 2018. Ars Technica points out that security updates for Windows 8.1 are guaranteed till at least October 2023, leaving users who upgraded to Windows 10 at a significant disadvantage.

    Dell Updates XPS 13 With 8th-Gen Intel Processors; Reveals Visor Mixed Reality Headset Price 

    Highlights Updated XPS 13 laptops will feature same design as original laptop Dell has also updated Inspiron series laptops Visor mixed-reality headset has been priced at $349.99

    Dell has now its XPS 13, Inspiron 5000, and Inspiron 7000 series laptops with Intel’s latest eighth generation Kaby Lake processors. The Dell XPS 13 laptop, which still features the impressive design of the original and the the new Intel Core i7 chip, will be made available starting September 12 at $1,399.99 (roughly Rs. 89,600) but the company says that additional configurations will be made available from October.

    Moving on to the Inspiron 5000 series laptops, the 13-inch and 15-inch variants of the 2-in-1 laptop will be receiving the new eighth generation Intel Core processors. In the Inspiron 7000 series of laptops, the standard variant and the Inspiron 7000 2-in-1will be receiving the updated processors. Also, the 17-inch variant of the Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 portable will get the new generation chips.

    Separately, Dell has now announced that its Visor mixed-reality headset, which has been made specifically for Microsoft’s Windows Mixed Reality platform, will be made available from October at a price of $349.99 (roughly Rs. 22,400). Customers can also choose to buy a bundle with the headset and two controllers for $449.99 (roughly Rs. 28,800). While the company has described Visor as a mixed-reality headset, it has notably shown only the VR capabilities of the wearable as of now, as pointed out in a separate report by The Verge.

    To recall, Microsoft started taking pre-orders for the mixed-reality headsets from Acer and HP in May this year. Engadget points out that just like the headsets from Acer and HP, the wearable from the Dell will also come with 1440×1440 LCD panels and feature sufficient padding that would allow users to wear it comfortably for longer periods as well.

    “Dell Visor takes advantage of the same technology used in the Microsoft HoloLens, including inside-out tracking cameras, with a 360 degree panoramic view. The headset itself is able to scan surroundings instead of satellite emitters positioned inside the room,” the company said in its release. The Dell Visor will be made available at Microsoft and select Best Buy stores and BestBuy.com in the coming months.
