Fortnite iOS: How To Sign-up, Invite Friends To Fornite Battle Royale

Gaming fans of Fornite Battle Royale who are Apple users could now play the game on iOS. This comes after Epic Games sent the first batch of invitation to iOS users last week. With this, Epic Games wants iOS users to invite their friends to try and play the game.

 

Those existing iOS users and at the same time, a Fortnite players should be able to receive an email. The email, which was sent by the game developer, contains an instruction on how Fortnite iOS players could invite friends.

 

“You have new friend invites ready to send!” a dispositive portion of the email reads. “Share them with your friend to give them instant access to the Fortnite Invite Event on iOS.”

 

How to use Fortnite invite codes

 

Now, to use the Fortnite invitation codes, you must access first the Fornite iOS invitation. You can do this by opening the game via an iPhone or iPad. The invitation is available via an email sent to you by Epic Games.

 

And if you have an invitation to send, you will be able to see a notification just in the top right corner of the screen in Fortnite on your mobile device. Simply tap it, and it would send out links to invite your friends.

 

The only thing that your friend must do is simply to accept the invitation. After which, both of you would now be added to each other’s friends list automatically.

Meanwhile, Epic Games said that Fornite Battle Royale in iOS is still in beta. The game developer announced that the game would add other features in the future. These features include visual cues to make spotting gun fire and enemies easier, among others.

Apple Plans To Produce Own Chips For Three More Macs

The Cupertino-based Apple Inc. is planning to place a custom processor in its three Macs by the end of 2018, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday.

 

Apple is making its own chips for its Mac product lines

 

The report, however, did not give an accurate detail about the chips. What is clear though is that these chips will be installed in the company’s updated laptops and desktop computer.

 

Sought for comment, tech analysts won’t discount the possibility of producing a custom processor. The tech giant is known for making custom chips for several Apple products. This includes tablets, phones, and wearables, among others.

 

They also added that Apple’s move of bringing in customised chips to Mac was not an entirely new concept. In fact, the company started to develop its own chips back in 2016 starting with the high-end MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.

 

The company said that the chip is responsible for running the Touch Bar and Touch ID. With this kind of development, Apple’s aggressive usage of its own chips could be a game changer for the future of its Mac.

 

The company is also planning to have an integration of its chip both in hardware and software. Apple is even closer to using its own chip as the main processor inside the Mac.

 

The company was able to make processors that greatly outperforms Apple’s rivals.But ahead of its plan, Apple may encounter some technical problems along the way as the company is also known to use chips produced by Intel.

Apple Might Risk Its Position of Trust: Will Apple’s Admission Hurt Its Reputation?

Apple has been known about its iPhones, iPads and Macs. But Apple might lose the trust of people because of a certain issue.

Apple Might Lose Customers’ Trust

It’s been years since Apple released their very first iPhone and they’ve been attracting customers over the past few years.

Every year, the company releases a new phone model. Additional features are always present every time they launch a new phone model.

They’ve been working hard to earn the trust of their users. But lately, there are some complaints about iPhones slowing down.

Her is Apple slyly doing things to people’s phones — even if it’s for the phone’s own good — and simply not telling them about it.

Apple consistently denied the accusation. But you can’t keep a secret for too long. This deed was eventually caught.

Of course, iPhone users were distraught about this revelation. The demands of creating new tech mean that it has to be this way.

Apple will no longer be the good guy, just the good-looking guy.

For many people, sadly, that’s enough.

 

Audit cites Foxconn faults in China factories

Audit sites Foxconn faults in China factories

The Fair Labor Association conducted a month long inspection on the factories being operated by Foxconn in China.

The latter is a major supplier to Apple and other companies.

The investigation was initiated by Apple in response to critics after news of workers deaths that included suicides and injuries within the Chinese factories.

The investigation resulted into uncovering excessive overtime and problems with overtime compensation at factories that produce iPhones and iPads among many devices. They also cited health and safety risks.

The group conducted a survey and found out that 43% of the respondents said that they experienced or have witnessed an accident within the factories.

According to chief executive of the group Auret van Heerden, “The Fair labor Association gave Apple’s largest supplier the equivalent of a full-body. Apple and its supplier Foxconn have agreed to our prescriptions, and we will verify progress and report publicly.”

Foxconn is a Taiwanese company that has about 1.2 million employees in their pay-roll. They also manufacture parts for Dell Inc., Microsoft Corp. and Amazon.com Inc.

The company said that they are committed to bringing factories into full compliance with Chinese legal limits and Fair Labor Assn. standards on working hours by July 2013.
