Several insiders in China noted the fact that Huawei’s proprietary HarmonyOS 2.0 operating system, which serves as a replacement for both Android and EMUI, began to spread over the air. True, so far only among developers, and wide public beta testing will start in about a month.

As noted, the size of the update is highly dependent on the model of smartphone or tablet – it varies between 2.87-6.2 GB. This update is currently available in China for the following devices: Mate X2, Mate 40, Mate 40E, Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 Pro +, Mate 40 RS Porsche Design, Huawei Smart Screen S, Huawei Smart Screen S Pro, P40, P40 Pro , P40 Pro +, Mate 30 4G, Mate 30 Pro 4G, Mate 30 5G, Mate 30 Pro 5G, Mate 30 RS Porsche Design, Mate 30E Pro 5G, MatePad Pro, MatePad Pro 5G.

Also, one of the insiders published a video with a screen capture from the Mate X2 – we have the opportunity to look at how the almost serial HarmonyOS looks like (the developers are now testing the third beta version, after which the OS will be released). Users who have already tried the OS note that it works very smoothly and differs from Android with EMUI only in nuances like effects.

Microsoft has announced a major milestone for its new operating system, Windows 11. According to the documentation on Microsoft’s website, Windows 11 is now ready for widespread adoption.

Just now: Microsoft announced that Windows 11 is ready for widespread adoption

This means that any (almost) user can now download and install it through Windows Update (Windows Update). Microsoft traditionally announces this status after a few months of slow OS distribution to ensure a smooth and stable update for as many users as possible.

Even though Windows 11 is now available to the public, Microsoft has no plans to force it, as they did in 2015 with a forced upgrade to Windows 10. The latest operating system remains optional, and users are free to keep Windows 10, which will continue to be actively supported. three more years.

Despite the new status, Microsoft still has one reason why it may not allow those who wish to upgrade their PC to Windows 11, even if the system requirements are met. This is a known issue with a certain Intel SST (Smart Sound Technology) driver. PCs with this driver are not prompted to install Windows 11.

One of Apple’s mixed reality headset prototypes required a small crane, while others ran Windows.

One of Apples mixed reality headset prototypes required a small

Apple may introduce its mixed reality headset as early as the end of this year or next. But, as you can see from a fresh source report, the company began work on the project back in 2015.

One of Apple's mixed reality headset prototypes required a small crane, while others ran Windows.

Apple planned to release the headset much earlier than 2022-2023, but during the development process, the company encountered a number of problems due to which the release was constantly delayed.

Already in 2016, the team responsible for the project demonstrated very early prototypes to management. There were a certain number of them, and they were quite different from each other. Some were running Windows, some were modified HTC Vive models or some other converted serial products from other companies. One prototype was so heavy that a “little crane” was required to hold it on the head. As a result, the management decided to support the project, although Facebook partially contributed to this process. More specifically, Apple’s concerns about a similar company project.

Technical issues have been a major cause of delays, as has been the case in the past with Apple’s most ambitious new products such as the iPhone. But the Apple smartphone also had an exceptionally powerful figure in Steve Jobs.

While current Apple CEO Tim Cook is backing the headset project, he hasn’t been as active as Jobs in iPhone development, according to five people familiar with the project. For example, according to these people, he rarely visited the project’s development team at its offices away from Apple’s main campus. People say the lack of an authority like Cook, who championed the headset codenamed N301, has at times made it difficult to compete with other products like the Mac and iPhone in terms of staffing and engineering resources.

At the same time, another influential figure in Apple – chief designer Jony Ive – was generally against the project, as he believed that users would not want to wear such a device on their heads for a long time. Also, the Quince team believed that virtual reality separates people. Apparently, this was the reason why the headset eventually evolved from a virtual reality device to a mixed reality headset.

In addition, the project team came up with one curious detail: to equip the headset with an external screen. It was supposed to display an image from the internal camera of the device. Thus, people around the user could see his eyes. For a long time, only a few people knew about this feature of the product under development.

The authors of the article also say that they will later talk about a turning point in the development of the device, which took place in 2019. Presumably, the point is that then Ive decided to abandon the project, which provided for the headset to have a separate external unit with a computing platform. Instead, it was decided to opt for a less productive, but more independent device.

Whatsapp allows you to quietly leave a group

The WhatsApp team is working on a new feature that will allow users to “silently” leave group chats.

Whatsapp allows you to

Currently, when someone leaves a group chat, WhatsApp announces it to all members of the group. Now it is impossible to quietly leave the group so that all members do not know about it. But soon this may change.

The thematic resource WABetainfo drew attention to the innovation in the beta version – when a user leaves a group, only group administrators receive a notification. When a group member opts out, a dialog box appears that says “Only you and the group admins will be notified that you have left the group.”
