The upcoming iOS 16 announced at WWDC will feature a redesigned lock screen. This was told by Craig Federighi, senior vice president of software development at Apple. There will be new fonts, styles and colors, as well as the output of useful information, such as weather, noise levels and more. It’s somewhat similar to the Apple Watch.
There will be a new kind of push notification called Live Activities. It will allow you to monitor different processes in real time without opening the application. For example, in this way it will be possible to follow how a taxi rides or watch the score of your favorite team.
The developers have also expanded the functionality of the modes. It will be possible to link lock screens, applications, tabs in Safari and widgets to them, and easily switch between modes.
The first ultra-slim handheld Windows game console with an OLED screen. Ayaneo Air launched on Indiegogo
Ayaneo has entered Indiegogo with its Air handheld game console.
The company calls the novelty the first ultra-thin set-top box with Windows and an OLED screen. The dimensions here are 224 x 89.5 x 26.7 mm with a mass of 395 g. For comparison, the dimensions of the Steam Deck are 298 x 117 x 49 mm with a mass of 669 g, but the Nintendo Switch OLED has dimensions of 175 x 104 x 50.7 mm with a mass of 315 g.
True, there is also a version of Air Pro, the thickness of which is increased to 29.6 mm, and the weight is 450 g.
The novelty is available in many different configurations. The base version, which can be ordered for $500 through a crowdfunding campaign, is equipped with a Ryzen 5 5560U APU, 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD. There are versions with the same APU, but 16 GB of RAM and up to 1 TB SSD. There is also a modification based on the Ryzen 7 5825U with 32 GB of RAM and an SSD from 512 GB to 2 TB. The top console can be purchased for $1,000.
In any case, the performance of any version will be significantly lower than that of the Steam Deck, as well as consoles based on the Ryzen 6000U.
It is also important that retail prices will differ very little from the prices of the fundraising campaign.
The rest of the parameters include a 5.5-inch OLED screen with Full HD resolution, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, a battery with a capacity of 28 or 38 Wh (second for Air Pro versions), a fingerprint scanner (except for the most basic version).
The Indiegogo campaign has already raised around $255,000, nearly four times the amount the manufacturer is asking for.
Samsung Galaxy S22, S22 Plus and S22 Ultra users will soon be able to try out Android 13 and One UI 5.0. The public beta version of the firmware will be released in mid-July
Rumors attributed the release of the public beta version of the One UI 5.0 interface based on Android 13 in July this year, and now the source has given a little more detail on this matter. The “window” for the release of the beta version of One UI 5.0 has been clarified – this will happen in the third week of July, from the 11th to the 17th.
The flagship smartphones of the Galaxy S22 series will be the first to receive One UI 5.0, which is logical. But the source writes that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 will join the beta testing program pretty quickly. Well, the final version of One UI 5.0 will appear only in October. However, this is still earlier than the release of One UI 4.0 took place at one time.
Popular Action Launcher Android skin gets more free features
Action Launcher is a fairly popular shell for the Android operating system among paid ones. The developers have released Action Launcher v50, which has many more free features for those who do not want to pay for such features.
The app has gone through a lot of improvements over the years to keep up with some of the key improvements made by Google. However, in recent times there has been more and more criticism that the free basic version had a minimum number of features.
The Action Launcher’s implementation of the Freemium system has historically been terrible. We pushed people too aggressively to buy the Plus upgrade, which turned off so many people, and the app was hardly interesting for non-paying users.
Action Launcher v50 is suitable for everyone whether you pay or not. The new version offers an improved search engine that uses the Pixel Launcher. Action search gives you the best results on the web and on your device, as well as some action launcher settings that can be toggled right from the home screen.
In addition to action search and other free features, the action launcher’s own settings are changed. The app adds a settings search bar as well as shortcuts to recently changed settings.
