Intel plans to offload virus scanning to improve the performance of its processors.

Apple today offered fans a preview of a big iOS 11.3 update coming this spring.

Apple has already apologized for the practice and set up a battery replacement program in an effort to fix affected units. But that hasn’t saved the company from getting into hot water with authorities in a number of countries.
