A company that makes semiconductors for Apple iPhones says it is recovering from a virus outbreak but expects the incident to delay shipments and raise costs.

Taiwan Semiconductor Co. Ltd. said 80 percent of the fabrication tools affected by Friday’s virus had been recovered by Sunday. TSMC expects full recovery on Monday.

The company didn’t detail the impact on Apple or other customers. Apple Inc. did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

The semiconductor company blames the outbreak on a mistake during installation of software for a new tool, which was then connected to its computer network. It says confidential information was not compromised.

The company says the incident will cut third-quarter revenue by about 3 percent. But it’s confident it will get that back in the fourth quarter. (VOA)

Apple is saying goodbye to “Time Travel” — one of Apple Watch’s under-used features — with watchOS 5 this fall.

According to an AppleInsider report, “Time Travel” feature debuted as part of the watchOS 2 update.

“Time Travel” lets users turn back (or forward) time to display certain information from a different date and time.

It lets you go back and forth in digital time to see everything that was — or going to be — displayed on your Watch face.

The feature is utilised by rotating the “Digital Crown” on the Watch clockwise or counter-clockwise, which would move time on the Apple Watch in the appropriate direction.
