WhatsApp is working on a number of upgrades to improve the user experience according to a new report. 

According to WABetaInfo, the instant messaging app is working on upgrading messages using their altered version for a future update of the app. Users will be able to edit sent messages once the feature is released.

The “edit messages” feature will be rolled out through the Google Play Beta Program, bringing the version up to The website also shared the first screenshot of the feature which is still in the development phase. As this feature is in the under-development stage, its release date is not known yet.

“WhatsApp is now working on the process that lets the app update the message by using its edited version: this is a sign that WhatsApp keeps working on this feature.

In case you are using an outdated build of WhatsApp, you have to update the app when you receive an edited version of a message from the recipient or a linked device.,” WABetaInfo wrote.

The ability to hide the online status was just made available to some iOS beta users through the Meta-Owned app.

A similar function was made available to some Android beta users earlier this week. According to reports, WhatsApp users can use this function to restrict who can view their last seen from knowing when they are online.

The app is also working on sending a new in-app survey conversation to a very small number of users to get input. After obtaining an invitation, users can provide feedback on new features, products, and other items. The request for input is optional, so users are free to decline it.

E Performance opens new chapter for Mercedes S Class

There is more to a Mercedes – any Mercedes – than just the prestige that comes with the badge. It presents style, class and innovation, and this new S Class E is exceptional on all levels.

The building of the Affalterbach reputation started 52 years ago, and since then, those AMG letters on any Mercedes have become the benchmark for luxury and brutal performance.

Today, the new Mercedes-AMG S 63 E Performance with AMG hybrid technology once again sets the benchmark in the segment.

Der neue Mercedes-AMG S 63 E PERFORMANCE (Angaben WLTP | Kraftstoffverbrauch gewichtet, kombiniert: 4,4 l/100 km, CO2-Emissionen gewichtet, kombiniert: 100 g/km, Stromverbrauch gewichtet, kombiniert: 21,4 kWh/100 km); Exterieur: MANUFAKTUR kaschmirweiß magno; Interieur: Leder Exklusiv Nappa AMG macchiatobeige / magmagrau // The new Mercedes-AMG S 63 E PERFORMANCE (Data WLTP | weighted, combined fuel consumption: 4.4 l/100 km; weighted, combined CO2 emissions: 100 g/km; weighted, combined power consumption: 21.4 kWh/100 km); exterior: MANUFAKTUR cashmere white magno; interior: AMG Exclusive nappa leather macchiato beige / magma grey

It combines the AMG 4.0-litre V8 Biturbo engine with the AMG-specific hybrid powertrain and a new expansion stage of the AMG battery (HPB). The new HPB 150 offers the same high performance and directly cooled battery cell as the well-known HPD 80.

The focus of the powertrain, however, is less on electric range and more on best-in-class performance. With 590kW and 1 430Nm, this saloon accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in 3.3 seconds, topping out at 290km/h.

“The S-Class has always had a very special meaning for us. In 1971, it made the AMG brand famous overnight with its legendary appearance in the Spa 24-hour race. This was undoubtedly an important foundation stone for our rise as a performance and sports car brand with global significance.

With E Performance, we are now opening a new chapter. Never before has a luxury saloon so perfectly combined best-in-class performance with superior comfort and virtually silent electric driving. In this way, we are also opening up to highly discerning target groups who see Mercedes-AMG as the performance luxury brand of the 21st  century. With the most powerful S-Class of all time, however, we are not only going our own technical way, as is characteristic of AMG, but also making a strong visual statement. For the first time, the S-Class Saloon also has our AMG-specific radiator grille, so the brand affiliation is closer than ever before,” says Philipp Schiemer, chairperson of the board of management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.


This car presents an expressive exterior and interior design. The MBUX infotainment system includes various AMG- and hybrid-specific displays and functions. These include the displays in the instrument cluster, on the multimedia central display in portrait orientation in the centre console and the optional heads-up display.

The instrument cluster view can be personalised with different display styles and individually selectable main views.

You Can Finally Improve Your iPhone’s Always-On Display



76C7C7D4 573C 4B7D 90D0 57092F0CAA0B

You can finally hide your wallpaper while using your iPhone 14 Pro’s AOD.

The iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max feature an Always-On Display (AOD) that allows you to check the time without waking up the entire screen. The feature is great to have (albeit years behind Android), but its execution was a bit lacking, as it wouldn’t allow you to hide your wallpaper entirely. Instead, Apple’s approach involved showing a dimmed Lock Screen wallpaper. This looks fine, but in practice, it could lead to worse battery life—plus, it’s easy to mistake the dimmed AOD screen as your iPhone actually being awake. Overall, it’s a bit of a mess.

However, the situation has changed with iOS 16.2 beta 3. You can finally decide if you want to see your wallpaper (and notifications) on your iPhone’s AOD, rather than have Apple decide for you. As iOS 16.2 is still in beta testing, you will need to enroll your iPhone in Apple’s beta program to try it out. Remember, though, that beta software is unfinished, which means it isn’t reliable: If you need to remove the software for whatever reason, you could lose your data, so we don’t recommend installing beta software on your main device.

To use this feature on an iPhone 14 Pro or 14 Pro Max running iOS 16.2, go to Settings > Display & Brightness > Always On Display, and you will see two new options: Wallpaper and Notifications. To improve your battery life,disable the Wallpaper option.

In case you want to minimize distractions andmaximize your battery life, you should disable both of these options. By doing so, your iPhone’s AOD feature will show you the date and time and nothing else. It’s a relatively small change that makes the feature much more subtle.

iOS 16.2 is expected to ship in the coming weeks, so you can always wait if you don’t want to bother with beta software now. In the mean time, you could always try this hack to fix the shortcomings of the AOD feature on your iPhone. This alternative method involves creating a Focus mode to get the job done, and it’s surprisingly effective.

Make This Shortcut for Your iPhone Downloads



4FA69827 878E 4851 A730 6BADC9A51E38 jpeg

Stop googling “where is the downloads folder on my iPhone.” Add it to your home screen.

After a long decade, the iPhone finally added a downloader to Safari with iOS 13 so you can download files and automatically store them on your iPhone in a Downloads folder. But where exactly is the downloads folder? How do you actually access the files that you downloaded from Safari?

Well, they’re not in Safari. They’re in this other app called Files, and you can find it by going to Files > Browse > iCloud Drive > Downloads. But instead of taking four steps, you should use the Shortcuts app to create an automation thatopens your Downloads folder (or any folder that you need, for that matter). Add that shortcut to the home screen and you’ll have your own dedicated Downloads app.

To get started, open the Shortcuts app, tap Plusfrom the top right, and tap Add Action in the shortcut editor. Here, add the “Folder” action from the Files app. Tap the empty “Folder” icon in the shortcut, navigate to the “Downloads” folder, and tap “Open.” That’ll make the Downloads folder the target for your shortcut. To open that folder easily, search for and add the “Open File” shortcut. When it’s added, it’ll automatically take the folder from the previous step as the input—but make sure to tap the “Default App” button and choose the “Files” app.

Then just tap the shortcut title at the top, give it a name like “Downloads,” and tap “Add to Home Screen.” You can add a special icon there if you want, then just tap “Add” to add it to your home screen. When you tap your new makeshift “Downloads” app, it will take you directly to the Downloads folder in your iCloud Drive (or local storage, depending on your settings).
