Apple will help the flood-affected Japanese people by undertaking free repair of iPhones, iPads, iPods, Mac computers, Apple Watches and Apple’s displays damaged in the torrential rains that hit the western part of the country earlier this month.

If the gadgets were impaired directly by the rain disasters and still fixable, individual users can apply for the free service, The Japan Times reported on Monday.

The Cupertino, California-headquartered tech giant plans to accept requests for free repair of its products until the end of September.

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.
