  • Patent number: 11228987
    Abstract: The present application provides a method and a wireless communication device, which includes selecting a total transmitter power target. A target transmitter power is identified for each of the transmitters operating separately at which each individual transmitter would meet a transmitted radio frequency signal exposure limit relative to a user of the wireless communication device. A fixed ratio is determined for each of the transmitters to be used with the total transmitter power target, based on the determined fixed ratio of the target transmitter power identified for each of the transmitters to the total transmitter power target.

  • Patent number: 11228998
    Abstract: A communication device, method and computer program product enable increased functionality using multiple subscriber identity modules (SIMs). The communication device is camped on a first network node of a first subset of network nodes of a first public land mobile network (PLMN) as one home PLMN using a first SIM. The communication device is camped on a second network node of a second subset of network nodes of a second PLMN as another home PLMN using a second SIM. The communication device monitors communication performance and level of quality of service available from the second PLMN while connected using the second SIM. In response to determining that the communication performance and/or the level of quality of service would be improved, the communication device triggers a radio frequency (RF) front end of the communication device to scan for, acquire, and register to one of the first subset of network nodes using the second SIM.

  • Patent number: 11226698
    Abstract: A method for detecting, by a force sensing circuit within an electronic device, a change in force applied to a surface of the electronic device. The method includes correlating the change in the force applied to the surface to a functional change of at least one setting of the electronic device. The method further includes identifying when a detected change is a first change of the change in force, which corresponds to a trigger that activates at least one of a plurality of sensing devices within the force sensing circuit to monitor for a subsequent change in the force. In response to detecting the subsequent change of the change in force, the method includes adjusting the at least one setting of the electronic device based on the subsequent change of the force.

  • Patent number: 11228581
    Abstract: Systems and methods for authenticating a user of a mobile electronic device to use a FIDO (fast identification online) compliant application in the device are provided. These entail receiving a user authentication input at the mobile electronic device and caching the authentication input. While the authentication input remains cached, the user is authenticated to use the mobile electronic device via the authentication input. The mobile electronic device is then unlocked and the FIDO compliant application is opened. Secure delayed FIDO authentication is then executed by providing the cached authentication input to the FIDO compliant application to open an authenticated session of the user on the FIDO compliant application.

  • Publication number: 20220004707
    Abstract: A device receives an electronic communication from another device, such as an email. The communication is addressed to multiple recipients and the device determines an association of content in the communication to a user of the device. This association of content to a user can be determined in various manners, such as by identifying one of multiple portions of the communication that is directed to the user rather than other recipients of the communication, determining whether the user is a primary recipient or a secondary recipient of the communication, and so forth. The device generates a set of natural language responses to the communication for the user based at least in part on this association. The device displays the set of natural language responses and receives user selection of one of the natural language responses, then sends the selected natural language response to at least the other device.

  • Patent number: 11216540
    Abstract: A system and method for accommodating various device and application security levels collects authentication data such as voice and fingerprint in advance of opening an application or process potentially requiring different security than the device itself requires. The device is then able to execute a user's voiced command, request or query without further user actions if the command, request or query is related to an application or process for which the already-gathered authentication data is sufficient.

  • Publication number: 20210402742
    Abstract: Implementations for composite display cover are described and provide improved protection and durability to device displays as compared with conventional display protection technologies. The described composite display cover, for instance, utilizes an ultra-thin glass layer with a polymer film applied directly to the glass layer and a hard coat applied to the polymer film. The polymer film, for instance, is applied to the glass layer without an adhesive. Further, the composite display cover can be attached to a display, such as via an adhesive layer that adheres the glass layer to a surface of the display.

  • Publication number: 20210405735
    Abstract: A device includes a thermal mitigation system that operates to reduce performance of a component of the device to prevent the device from getting too hot. The system uses a combination of a time-based technique and a temperature-based technique to perform thermal mitigation. The time-based technique refers to using an indication of the device usage as well as the amount of current drawn by the device at any given time to predict an amount of time that the device is to run in a non-reduced performance mode before reaching a target temperature threshold, and an amount of time for the device to run in a reduced performance mode to cool down. The temperature-based technique refers to monitoring the temperature of the device (or a component of the device) and powering off the device in response to detecting that a monitored temperature exceeds a critical threshold temperature.
