iOS 16 has introduced a plethora of new features, including the ability to customize the lock screen, background removal from photos, iMessage features, and much more. This list of iOS 16 features also includes the new keyboard haptics for vibration when you type, something third-party keyboard apps have offered. This, however, might end up taking a toll on your iPhone’s battery life.
Keyboard Haptics on iOS 16 Will Drain Your iPhone
Apple has warned about the repercussions of enabling Keyboard Haptics on iOS 16 in a recently shared support document. It is revealed that this feature might “affect the battery life of your iPhone.”
However, there’s no word on how much of an effect this feature will have on the iPhone’s battery life as there are no details. Since Apple has specifically mentioned this, we expect some significant effects.
Another thing to note is that Keyboard Haptics will still work even when the Low Power Mode is on, which is sort of contradicting, given that this feature is capable of draining the battery. In case you feel the battery drainage is now quicker than usual after enabling the feature, maybe it’s time to disable it!
How to Enable Keyboard Haptics on iOS 16
If this doesn’t bother you and you wish to enable Keybaord Haptics, you are required to follow a few simple steps to get it. Check them out below.
- Head to the Settings app.
- Visit the Sound & Haptics section.
- Tap the Keyboard Feedback option.
- Now, enable either Sound, Haptics, or both.
If the keyboard fails to produce a vibration while typing despite enabling the feature, just enable the vibration by selecting the Touch option under the Accessibility Settings.
OpenAI’s DALL-E Image Generator Lets You Edit Human Faces, Again!
OpenAI’s DALL-E is easily one of the most popular AI image generators online. Its editing capabilities can outperform the competition in almost every aspect, and now, things are about to get even more interesting. Once considered a privacy hazard, DALL-E’s useful ability to edit human faces is now an official feature. But should you be worried or rejoiced? Let’s find out.
Edit Photos with Faces Using DALL-E
OpenAI announced in an official newsletter to all its users that “you can now upload and edit photos with faces with DALL·E.” In the same newsletter, they claimed that the feature was highly in-demand among users for purposes like changing outfits, editing background scenes, etc. But they had kept it off limits to prevent the misuse of AI’s abilities.
Now, OpenAI claims that “with improvements in our safety system, DALL·E is now ready”, to support the editing of human faces. They backed the claim by saying that they have put a more robust set of filters to prevent all attempts to generate sexual, political, and violent content.
Moreover, they have also claimed that their policy prevents their users from uploading images of anyone without their consent. We tried testing the claim by using the names of random celebrities to generate images with their face and the filters prevented the action. However, this policy, at the moment, doesn’t seem to have a system in place to prevent users from uploading pictures with people’s faces who haven’t consented to the usage.
How to Use DALL-E to Edit Human Faces
If you want to use DALL-E to edit human faces and images with faces, you can either enter a prompt to make it generate a face or simply upload an image with a face in it. After uploading an image, you can ask DALL-E to create its variants. Using this option feels like seeing variants of yourself from the multiverse. But some can be more bizarre than others.
Here are the variants DALL-E created from an AI-generated face (also created by DALL-E):
To test the capabilities of DALL-E, I also uploaded my own image with my eyes covered in it. Then instead of creating variants, I asked DALL-E to edit my face and clothes. The results were surprisingly reliable.
What I have tested is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to DALL-E’s true capabilities. If you have access to this AI tool, you can try pushing it to the next level. Meanwhile, others can request its access on the official OpenAI website. Having said that, do you think giving AI the ability to edit photos with faces is the right move? Or are you concerned about your privacy? Tell us in the comments below!
