Telegram for Android now supports multiple accounts

While the iOS app remains a step behind its Android sibling and still can’t support multiple accounts, the company has something for Apple users, as well. Telegram is finally giving you a way to change what your app looks like under the new Appearance setting. The iOS version now has several themes to choose from, including two dark “night time” themes and a “day” theme with colors you can tweak. That’s not quite as useful as having support for more than one account, but fingers crossed that themes’ arrival on iOS means Android’s other features will soon follow.

Unlike the other two in Telegram’s update list, both mobile platforms share version 4.7’s last new feature: quick replies. You can simply swipe left on a friend’s text bubble to write a reply specifically for that part of the conversation, so you can type up multiple responses without confusing yourself and your friend.

Xbox party chat arrives on iOS in beta

There’s no word on when party chat will reach polished versions of the Xbox mobile app, although beta testing suggests it’s more a matter of weeks than months. Whenever it does arrive, it’ll be good news for gamers who don’t want their chats confined to the living room.

Apple apologizes for not telling customers iPhones with older batteries would slow over time

Apple has today posted a letter on its website and a technical article in its Knowledge Base apologizing for not being more transparent about how it handles performance on iPhones with older batteries. Last week, Apple issued a statement that made it clear that changes it made a year ago were indeed slowing down the maximum performance of iPhones with older batteries.

It will now also offer a battery replacement for older devices affected for a reduced $29.

“We’ve been hearing feedback from our customers about the way we handle performance for iPhones with older batteries and how we have communicated that process,” the letter reads. “We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down. We apologize. There’s been a lot of misunderstanding about this issue, so we would like to clarify and let you know about some changes we’re making.”
