Apple’s iPad and iPhone screens rotate as they move
Apple has said that its iPad and iPhones are being rotated to make the software more responsive and prevent crashes when people use them in different orientations.
The company said it was “working to ensure that our products remain as usable as possible”.
Apple’s iPad Mini 2 comes in two different configurations: the iPad Air 2 with a smaller screen and a larger one that is the same size as the iPad Mini, which comes in 16GB and 32GB configurations.
iPhone 6s comes in a 16GB configuration.
The new screens are made of a glass layer that protects the devices’ displays, but they do not offer a “slight increase in durability” compared to the older versions of the iPhone, according to the company.
Apple has not revealed when the new screens will be available.
This is the first time Apple has publicly said it is working on a software update to make iPhones and iPads more responsive.
Apple introduced a feature in iOS 9 called Auto-Swap in September 2015 that lets users swap out their iPhone screens to make room for larger ones.
This new software update is the latest effort by Apple to improve iPhone and iPad stability, especially with the iPhone 6s, which is the most popular iPhone for consumers.
The latest software update will roll out on the first day of the new year on January 10, 2017.
Apple also announced a new Apple Watch Edition device, the Apple Watch Series 2, on Thursday.
