Man, the news of this has been blown way out of proportion, or in the wrong direction at least. Apple, for a little while now, has been slowing down iPhones when they demand peak performance from the battery when the battery is old. What used to happen is that your phone would unexpectedly quit/shut down, even though it still had 40% battery left or something. What happens now? Your phone stays running and performance is slowed a bit so that the battery can supply enough power to keep the device running. This is the opposite of planned obsolescence - it's making your phone last LONGER and be useful LONGER than a phone that quits and powers off ten times a day. My kid's iPhone is always two to three years old. She had this shutdown issue all the time. She hasn't had a shutdown in many many months, because of this feature. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/21/technology/iphone-battery-problem-slow.html https://daringfireball.net/2017/12/iphone_battery_throttling I saw even on the local news last night the way it was mentioned in a 15-second thing that it sounded "bad." It's quite the opposite.
What's the best - paid or free (likely paid) - call blocking software for iOS 10? Ideally I'd like software that: Integrates with CallKit. Duh. Provides info on the likely "spamminess" in the call. Flat out blocks super obvious spammers. Allows me to add other numbers to my iOS block list (so they're permanent and don't go away when/if I change or disable the app). Sends questionable calls to voicemail and lets me tag them as legit or spam. Ideally, doesn't send my contact list to a server (or is from a company reputable enough that I wouldn't mind and I know it's hashed up or something). Basically, I want very few false positives. I can always ignore calls I don't know about.
