Protests ignite again over China policy

Over the weekend in China more protests erupted over the country’s strict COVID lockdowns. For months, rare images from fed-up residents have been leaked.

AirDrop is used to share files, pictures, videos, and information that protesters have been using to spread their message. But in the latest iPhone update, Apple has restricted that feature in China.
