  • To update apps on iOS 13, you'll need to head to your "Account" menu in the App Store.
  • Most apps will update on their own, but you can use this page to manually update any apps that are queued up.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Keeping the apps on your iPhone up to date is important not only for security reasons, but to ensure you have all the latest features. 

While you can always set your apps to update automatically so you don't have to keep an eye on them, if you prefer to install updates manually, doing so is pretty straightforward. 

However, the way you manually update apps differs slightly in iOS 13 compared to previous versions. In iOS 13, you'll need to go through a few extra steps to find the update page. 

But once you know where to look, a few taps will make sure you're on track with the latest release available. 

Here's how to update your apps manually on an iPhone running iOS 13.

Evan Rachel Wood as Dolores and Tessa Thompson as Charlotte Hale, as seen in HBO's 'Westworld' Season 3

SPOILER ALERT: This article discusses Episode 4 (titled “The Mother of Exiles”) of HBO‘s Westworld Season 3. Please proceed with caution if you have not yet viewed all available episodes and wish to avoid spoilers.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, viewers have been trying to work out who are the identities of the five brain pearls Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) that smuggled out of Westworld in the Season 2 finale. The latest episode of HBO’s hit sci-fi drama series finally revealed that Dolores had just made replicas of herself, according to Esquire.

While Dolores may have developed some new hosts in order to hide these pearls, old characters were also created as well. This was shown not only by using the newly robotic Charlotte Hale (Tessa Thompson) as a host to Dolores’ plan to take over the world but, as Maeve (Thandie Newton) discovered in Episode 4, Musashi (Hiroyuki Sanada) from Shogun World was also used.

'I hate seeing bad things happen': Trump approves of Navy secretary's resignation, says it's a 'really unselfish thing'

  • President Donald Trump criticized Capt. Brett Crozier's actions on Tuesday, shortly after the acting Navy secretary, who fired the commander, resigned from his post.
  • "He made a mistake, but he had a bad day," Trump said of Crozier. "I hate seeing bad things happen, man made a mistake. But you shouldn't be writing letters, and you're in the military — you're a captain of a great ship."
  • Trump said acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly acted responsibly by resigning.

President Donald Trump criticized the former commander of a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier on Tuesday, shortly after the acting Navy secretary, who fired the commander, resigned from his post.

"The whole thing was very unfortunate," Trump said to reporters during a press conference.

Trump, referring to the commander of the USS Theodore Roosevelt, added that he "didn't have to be Earnest Hemingway" by writing an urgent letter warning about the coronavirus aboard his ship, which was eventually leaked to the news media.

"He made a mistake, but he had a bad day," Trump added about Capt. Brett Crozier. "I hate seeing bad things happen, man made a mistake. But you shouldn't be writing letters, and you're in the military — you're a captain of a great ship."

Trump said acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly acted responsibly by resigning from his post, which was accepted by senior Defense Department officials.

"I had heard he did because he didn't want to cause any disturbance for our country because he didn't want to resign," Trump said, referring to Modly. "I wouldn't have asked him. I don't know him. I didn't speak to him. But he did that I just think to end that problem. And in really many ways, that was a really unselfish thing for him to do."

modly

In a resignation letter first obtained by USNI, Modly said it was "with a heavy heart" that he voluntarily left the Navy.

"It has been the honor of my life to serve as the Under Secretary of the Navy and for the last five months, the Acting Secretary of the Navy," Modly's letter to Defense Secretary Mark Esper said. "I am thankful for the confidence both you and President Trump have expressed in me to discharge these weighty duties on behalf of our Sailors, Marines, and the American people."

Modly's resignation comes one day after the leak of a private speech to the sailors aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt, where a crew of over 4,800 service members dealt with a coronavirus outbreak. As of Sunday, over 150 service members aboard the ship, as well Crozier, had tested positive for the coronavirus.

Modly fired Crozier days after he wrote a four-page letter urging his Navy colleagues to implement a "political solution" and take "immediate and decisive action" as the ship dealt with a coronavirus outbreak.

The letter was eventually leaked to the San Francisco Chronicle, which published its contents last Tuesday. It was not immediately clear how the letter found its way to the newspaper, but the Defense Department said it launched an investigation.

In his speech to the sailors of the USS Theodore Roosevelt, Modly accused Crozier of violating military protocols and circumventing the chain of command by sending the letter to a group of people. He said there was a "proper way" for Crozier to handle his concerns, including allowing his immediate supervisor, who was aboard his ship, to address them.

The firing was widely criticized by sailors aboard the ship, as well as Democratic lawmakers.

James McPherson, the Army undersecretary, is expected to replace Modly, The Wall Street Journal reported. McPherson previously served as an enlisted soldier in the Army, later joining the Navy's Judge Advocate General's Corps and rising to the rank of rear admiral.

Epidemiologist: Coronavirus could be 'exterminated' if lockdowns lifted
Publisher:  WND
Tuesday, 07 April 2020 18:06

Kurt Wittkowski, Ph.D. (video screenshot)

The unprecedented policy of mass quarantine to "flatten the curve" is only prolonging the coronavirus pandemic, contends a veteran scholar of epidemiology.

The virus could be "exterminated" within weeks if people were allowed to lead normal lives and the vulnerable were sheltered until the virus passes, said Knut Wittkowski, Ph.D., the former head of the Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design at the Rockefeller University in New York City.

"[W]hat people are trying to do is flatten the curve. I don’t really know why," he said in an interview with The Press and The Public Project that was featured by The College Fix.

"But, what happens is if you flatten the curve, you also prolong, to widen it, and it takes more time," he explained. "And I don't see a good reason for a respiratory disease to stay in the population longer than necessary."

Wittkowski said the only thing that stops respiratory diseases is herd immunity.

Herd immunity happens when a large percentage of a population becomes immune to an infectious disease, which stops its spread.

"About 80% of the people need to have had contact with the virus, and the majority of them won’t even have recognized that they were infected, or they had very, very mild symptoms, especially if they are children," he said.

"So, it's very important to keep the schools open and kids mingling to spread the virus to get herd immunity as fast as possible," said Wittkowski.

At the same time, the elderly should be separated and the nursing homes closed.

After about four weeks, with the virus exterminated, he said, their children and grandchildren can return.

Wittkowski said the standard cycle of respiratory diseases is two weeks, after which "it's gone."

Even through "social distancing," the epidemiologist said, the virus find ways to spread, albeit more slowly.

"You cannot stop the spread of a respiratory disease within a family, and you cannot stop it from spreading with neighbors, with people who are delivering, who are physicians — anybody," he said.

"People are social, and even in times of social distancing, they have contacts; and any of those contacts could spread the disease," said Wittkowski.

"It will go slowly, and so it will not build up herd immunity, but it will happen. And it will go on forever unless we let it go," he said.

Wittkowski was asked his opinion of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the key medical expert on the White House coronavirus task force who has promoted the mass quarantine strategy.

"Well, I'm not paid by the government, so I'm entitled to actually do science," he replied.

Why is this virus being handled differently than others, such as the swine flu in 2009?

One factor, he said, is the growth of the internet, which spreads news quickly, whether true or false, fueling panic.

"These stories are circulating the world and contributing to chaos and to people being afraid of things they shouldn't be afraid of," he said.

Restrict abortion during the pandemic? Absolutely!
Publisher:  WND
Tuesday, 07 April 2020 18:05

Here are a few examples of headlines over recent weeks.

"Republicans exploit coronavirus to restrict abortions" – Los Angeles Times

"The coronavirus becomes an excuse to restrict abortions" – The New York Times

"Texas women forced to travel 20 times farther for abortion under coronavirus ban" – The Hill

Five states – Texas, Ohio, Alabama, Iowa and Mississippi – that are prohibiting nonessential medical procedures during the novel coronavirus health crisis have included abortion among these nonessential procedures.

These measures have been taken with one objective in mind: saving lives. To suggest otherwise is cynical and obscene.

The logic is straightforward. There is a dire shortage of medical equipment, facilities and personnel. Plus, most states have mandated social distancing to arrest the spread of infection – requirements that would be impossible to adhere to in abortion clinics.

It so happens that halting abortion saves the lives of unborn children. This is always true. But prohibiting needed supplies from being tied up and enforcing distance will also save the lives of Americans under threat of the virus.

Abortion providers in Texas, led by Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider, filed suit against the state's decision to restrict abortions under these circumstances. Their claim was upheld in federal district court, and permission for abortions was restored. However, the state appealed the decision, and the appeals court reversed the decision and restored the restriction, pending a hearing on April 13.

New York State Attorney General Letitia James was interviewed on National Public Radio to discuss her efforts to organize opposition to efforts to include abortion as a prohibited, nonessential procedure during this crisis.

Per James, New York and 17 other states have filed an amicus brief to support Texas abortion providers' efforts to restore permissibility of abortion.

James says: "This ban does nothing, nothing to prevent the transmission of the coronavirus. … Texas is doing nothing more than using this pandemic as an excuse to trespass on the rights of women and to treat them like second-class citizens."

This comes from the attorney general of New York, the state with the nation's highest abortion rate – and the nation's gravest challenges during this COVID-19 crisis.

How is it that the New York attorney general finds time to challenge how Texas is managing its fight against the coronavirus when her own state cannot manage its crisis?

As of this writing, there were 123,018 coronavirus cases in New York, amounting to 37% of all cases in the U.S. In Texas, there are 7,045. New York has 6,324 cases per million people. Texas has 243 per million.

The fatality rate in New York among confirmed cases is 3.38% compared with a fatality rate in Texas of 1.89%.

It should be clear that the attorney general of New York shouldn't be criticizing how those in Texas or any other state are dealing with this crisis given that there is no place more out of control than New York.

In the best of circumstances, crises, personal or national, should be a time of growth and learning. They should bring out the best in us rather than the worst.

I wish Americans would be equally shocked hearing that almost a million unborn children are destroyed in the womb every year as they are shocked hearing an estimated 100,000 to 240,000 will die from the coronavirus scourge.

You would think times like these would inspire humility and reverence for the miracle of life. Challenges like these should make us better Americans and better people.

But, apparently, things have become so coarse that that's not happening in many circles. It certainly doesn't seem to be happening in New York.

Maybe one day we'll grow. Meanwhile, the focus should be on saving lives, born and unborn.
