Apple Fixes Siri Exploit

Apple’s Night Shift feature is without a doubt the most striking feature offered by the iOS 9.3 since the color temperature varies according to the time of the day and reduces the amount of blue light that users absorb daily.

However, it seems that there is a bug in Siri due to which it by passes the iOS low power mode when in the Night Shift mode.

Though Apple has now almost resolved the issue through server side fixes. The Night Shift mode is activated actually when the power hits a low mode and asks the user to shift to a low saving mode.

This shall also turn off all unimportant networking features that eat up the battery. However, even when the users have already come into the lighter mode, the Nigh t Shift mode could still be turned on through Apple voice assistant Siri which has the ability to surpass the feature that was helping to give the benefit.

Anyways the issue is no longer there since Apple has tackled the situation through its server side besides giving updates that will solve other issues relating to Siri too. Now whenever a user tries to go to the Night Shift mode besides being in the low power mode, Siri first asks them, “In order to turn on Night Shit, I’ll have to turn off Low Power Mode. Shall I continue?”

The situation has now changed for Siri which now asks the user first in comparison to just obeying what the user says. Though this is a relatively good way that Apple has fixed the bug as well as other Siri related errors in one go, but this has also given rise to a more serious problem indeed.

This allows the Siri to search for contact and images to get accessed just by the simple search option.

Therefore, what Apple might do next to fix this bigger bug, remains the big question for now.
