SFR denies the accusations claiming that the operator restricts its customers who are too greedy. The Always-On function would arrive on the Pro and Pro Max models of the iPhone 14 and iOS 16 range. And Disney + is getting a little ahead of the broadcast of the third episode of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. This is the recap of May 31, 2022.
In the news of May 31, 2022, there was a dream. First with the complete presentation of the DoLorean Alpha5, an all-electric model modernizing the design of the iconic car from Back to the Future, while paying a vibrant tribute to it. Then from the dream with the appearance of a leak concerning the Pixel 7 Ultra, an alleged model that would come above the Pixel 7 Pro announced by Google. A dream too with the appearance of the first PS5 emulator, only a year and a half after the launch of the console. It runs on a PC… so to speak. Find below the three other highlights of the day.
SFR defends itself against accusations of clamping down on greedy customers
At the beginning of the week, we relayed in our columns the strange adventure of an SFR client. The latter received an SMS supposedly from his operator. In this SMS, he is informed that, following an overconsumption of data on his package, its flow will be greatly reduced until their next billing period. In a message posted on Twitter, the operator denies having sent such a message. He affirms that this sms is spam and that its throughput will not be reduced. Only everything does not match.

The Pro versions of the iPhone 14 will benefit from an Always-on display
One of the functions already present in many Android smartphones would normally arrive this year in the iPhone 14. It is the Always-on screen which allows you to display the time, the battery level and some information permanently on the screen. This novelty would be integrated into iOS 16, a version which will be deployed at the end of the year with new smartphones. On the other hand, this function would be exclusive to the Pro models because they will be the only ones to benefit from a compatible screen.

Obi-Wan Kenobi’s next episode is coming to Disney+ early
Difficult to combine habits with tributes. The first episode of the Obi-Wan series, which has just started on Disney+, was originally supposed to air on the day of 45th anniversary of the theatrical release of the first Star Wars film, A New Hope (which took place on May 25, 1977). However, Disney broadcast the first two episodes on Friday, May 27, thus compensating for the two-day delay. Fans therefore expected to find Tatooine on June 3. Well no! It will be June 1. Either today (if you are an avid reader of our recap). Find in our dedicated article the new broadcast schedule for the series.
