Apple today is rolling out a new update for its brand new MacBook Pros that were released earlier this month. This update brings a fix for performance related issues and thermal management system under certain conditions. The bug especially drives the clock speeds of the MacBook Pro's lower than necessary under heavy workloads.
The update comes after several reports about the performance issues related to CPU throttling. The 6-core Core i9 in the new high-end MacBook Pro seems to be quite aggressive but the bug discovered by Apple is not app specific and affects only intense workloads. Though reports point to the issues only in the high-end core i9 machines, it seems to be affecting all the new MacBook Pro models.
It appears that Apple must have missed the bug as the internal benchmark testing wasn’t affected by the bug. So, post the new supplemental update, Apple's original claims of the new 15-inch MacBook Pro being up to 70% faster will still remain the same. Apple said to have internally ran tests using Premiere Pro with similar workloads and the update indeed appears to fix the problem.
Apple in a statement said:
Following extensive performance testing under numerous workloads, we’ve identified that there is a missing digital key in ...

This new leak comes from the very famous @OnLeaks showcases Sony's path to continue to legacy of the XZ series. Since we have seen a dual-rear camera setup on the Xperia XZ2 Premium, it is believed that the upcoming flagship would also follow the same suit.

Update 2 - July 2018: Xiaomi has added couple of new cards including ‘Check train PNR’ and ‘Trending apps’ to MIUI App Vault. Xiaomi has partnered with Ixigo for ‘Check train PNR’ service which can be used to check PNR status without leaving the home screen. Users need to enter their 10 digit PNR number for their upcoming train journey to see all the details. The card also shows recently checked PNR numbers which is really helpful as users don’t need to enter PNR number each time they check PNR status for the same journey.

According to Morgan Stanley’s Katy Huberty who is a noted Apple analyst, the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone despite being announced in September might not be available for sale until October. The major delay for this is because of the production problems with the innovative backlighting system.
The innovative backlighting system appears to be a key to the near-bezel-free design. This isn't the first time we are hearing reports about the iPhone production delay with the LCD model. Though analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says he believes that Apple might be able to catch-up and still have the device on sale in September.
The delay of the LCD model would result in lower than shipments expectations in this quarter. We are expecting the 6.1-inch iPhone will be available in a range of colors including black, white, blue and orange, but instead of gold and red suggests yellow and taupe. The Apple iPhone 6.1-inch model will have a single rear camera lens and will measure 147.12 x 71.52 mm (5.79 x 2.81-inches). Since it is a low-cost iPhone, the company might cut down on 3D touch but will have a notch.
As for the pricing, Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported that the dual-SIM iPhone could be priced at $650 to $750, while ...
